Thanks again a lot guys!
This time maybe a bit boring update.
Changing, (not)fitting, measuring and some cable management.
(Sorry, no block update yet
First change the quad kit.
With 5 previous kits on other builds it was easy to remove the plates for the red fin fixation.
With 3 out of 4 it was impossible somehow.
Even with a hammer there were 2 sticks I couldn't replace.
Did see some horror pictures of removed heatsinks with the ram still on it so didn't want to do that either.
Also had another problem cause of hammering on it with 1 stick.
Then carefully drill it by hand.
And the tap by hand.
Got it fixed one hour later
2 red leds soldered and sleeved for the powerbutton.
Disabled the blue smd leds.
Wanted to test this together with the hardware that didn't run for a single minute yet.
(Incl. the hammered Ram and lapped Cpu)
Ok... off ... fast ... no water in the cpu block yet
Next small problem...
I measured everything at the start...that was for Matrix cards, the Mars is a little longer.
Discovering all kinds of convenient stuff in the yacht building industry.
Saw this last week, primer for all kinds of self adhesive stuff like ledstrips
They hang complete ceilings with Velcro with it.
Worth a try on the last radiator.
Did the corners with 3M Velcro, the edges with isolationtape.
Believe it or not ... It works to good .. Can't get it off with my bare hands
Had to file the fan on the back radiator after measuring with 7 different kinds of BP fittings to make the angle I wanted.
Still 2 prints to hide..
And the mess on the kitchen table again.
Not easy to hide 3 x 8 pin + 24 pin without a 'double bottom'.
Also sleeved the 2 sata cables.
Cover on top .. Till later this week
