水 Mizu Refined - Antec P180B All Internal Watercooling - Page 3

Where did you find those radgrillz in black? All I'm finding is stainless steel. I think those are sharp, I was just going to go the DIY route with some black acrylic, but those look nice.

[edit] another question, this may sound silly, but where are your HD's going to go?

Sorry for the slow progress guys. I got distracted with a few small home repairs. Good news is I'm now refocused on the project and plan on steam rolling towards having this project up and running by the weekend (minus the interior painting redface.gif). For now, here's what I have done since my last update.

Update 8:
Drilled holes for terminal block and will mount it behind the 5.25" bays

Cut out a 120mm hole and mounted my the 120mm radiator... this project will now house 3 internal radiators biggrin.gif

Hole cutout for some wires, the sharp edges were ground down first with a dremel then hand filed

Early mock up of what the final cable routes will be like. I plan on laying down a few more cable tie bases for the main ATX power cable and the other cables going up in that direction.

Stick around guys, if all goes according to plan, I'll have a bigger update coming within the next few days. cool.gif

Sub'd I can't wait to see this completed. I too have a p180, and just ordered one of the XSPC Rasa RS240 kits, so I'm trying to think of ways to set it up. I'm debating between adding another 240 Rad, or a 360. After seeing your mod, and a couple others I'm definately leaning toward a 360. Keep up the great work!
Thanks guys. cool.gif

Thanks, I ordered a few screws that weren't available from mcmaster-carr. The base shipping price was a little high for what I ordered though...

Do you have work log or pictures of your case? I'm interested in seeing it.

I answered your questions in a PM but if anyone else is curious, acryan.com used to be a site for computer mods. But since a year or two ago, the site is now focused on selling a media player device... I don't know if there was an owner change, but I can assume that all of the prior A.C. Ryan modding gear has been discontinued.

As for the question about my hard drives, I'm using a Scythe Bay Rafter Combo. It houses my regular hard drive along with my 2 SSDs all within one 5.25" bay.

Another update.

Update 9:
I bought a few more black screws and thumbnuts to mount my blocks
5968409181_8693516302_b.jpg

While I was working on my cable management, I tried putting the side panel back on and ended up breaking this clip because the cables I bundled were too thick and put too much pressure on the panel. I have fixed my cables so that they're now as flat as possible to prevent this from happening again
5968409427_969714c71e_b.jpg

Leaving the clip broken wasn't an option for me, the side panel didn't sit flush against the case so I was determined to fix it. I tried plastic cement but it didn't work so I went out and bought some plastic epoxy. I used my old Calculus book to put pressure on the clip while the epoxy was setting... biggrin.gif

5968410177_81d423a12a_b.jpg

In this picture, I have my 240 and 120 radiator fans hooked to the terminal block to test
5968410545_5fab131475_b.jpg

Here's an overview of what my cables look like, it's a few zip ties away from being the final revision. I'm missing my hard drive power adapters, pump wires, rear fan cable, and my front panel cables. The terminal block is powering 9 Gentle Typhoons biggrin.gif
5968410981_1696f65e02_b.jpg

I'm currently working on my front panel cables, I had to extend them to hide them away neatly
5968968890_993cb5a633_b.jpg

I'm an update or two away from having the project up and running. I plan on wrapping up my cable management and plumbing either by tomorrow or Monday, stick around guys cool.gif.

I have finished tubing the computer but I want to work on a little house cleaning before I fill the loop.

Update 10:
Here's how the front panel buttons, leds, and USB ports are connected. I didn't like covering up the buttons, but it made the cable management easier for me

Here's where everything sits now

Sorry for cutting this update short of water, but I had tools and screws scattered everywhere. It was driving me nuts and I had to do something about it. I wanted to fill the loop on a happy note biggrin.gif.

Sorry for the stalled project. Shortly after update 10 I introduced water and bled the system. It's been running perfectly ever since. I actually haven't made any more progress, I still have the blue masking tape on my panels... tongue.gif

BUT, I did order some things that arrived last week and it should wrap up the project once I install them (minus painting the interior). I will try to take some artsy shots to wrap things up soon.

Thanks for the interest guys. cool.gif
