looks pretty sick! I love builds like these!

Impressive on how you got 3 rads in there.

As for your tubing you could cut them a little longer to decrease your chances of a leak I see some gaps between the barbs on your motherboard.

Either way keep it up!

Sorry for never posting final shots guys... I was busy with my final semester at my university and trying to find employment tongue.gif.

Anyway, I bought some fittings a while back but I wanted to wait until I was ready to clean and re-tube everything before installing them. I recently just ordered some more tubing and plan to wrap things up soon!

Here are some teaser pictures for now.

Actually, that tubing is a bit harder to do than it looks. If I try to have the tubing seat against the end of the barb to remove those small gaps that you see, then the tubing kinks. I made sure the zipties were on real tight and nothing has leaked since. thumb.gif

But I did order some 60 degree fittings and extenders. They should help me clean up my tubing a little bit.

Looks really good. It's nice to keep everything inside.

I found this from looking at your Antec 300 build. I think I'm going to take out my 3.5" and my 5.25" bays next.

Probably a silly questions but can you tell me what those sections are in between the radiator and the fan which I presume forms a kind of tunnel? For the life of me I can't think what they are called and I want to find some but can't as I don't know what they are called lol.

Cheers

Thank you for the comments Mr Ripper! Those "sections" are called shrouds, in my project I actually just used old fans and gutted the internals out of them (justs cut the 4 posts that connect the fan to the frame with pliers). I haven't tested whether they actually help or hurt performance but they do seem to make my fans run quieter. More distance between the fan and radiator I suppose.

One of these days I'll take final pictures. I apologize to anyone who had subscribed to this thread.

Mhmmm, I've heard that one before.  xD

 

I finally decommissioned my old p180, and moved into a p280 last week, going to leave the p280 stock, and take my old gutted out p180, and turn it into a radbox for my other rig.

Between my job and modding + maintenance on my car on the weekends, I really haven't had the opportunity to work on the box redface.gif. Spring is coming up though and I need to change out my tubing soon though! Appreciate that you're still subscribed anubis. How do you like the 280?

Haha, I was just giving you a hard time.  I'm digging the p280 so far, a couple things I don't care for, but in general, a big step up from the stock p180.  My biggest complaint is they didn't offset the top 120 fan placement like on my Arc Midi (further away from the motherboard to allow larger radiators, or push/pull).   Fractal Design is the only company I've seen do that, but once you're used to it, it just doesn't make sense to do it any other way.

Nice work you've done there. I'm also looking forward to seeing some finalised pictures thumb.gif

I have a question about how you went on mounting the grill to the chassis.
Really liking the look of the socket head screws to hold the fan, but how did you mount the grill itself?
Are there any vibrations? Any padding used?
Haha I'm sorry for all the questions but I think it looks very neat and would probably would look at doing the same on my Lian Li PC-V1000 mod.
