Build Log: AquaCube (Updated 12/22) - Page 8

Sub'd! Represent CO!

AquaC hardware is going to look amazing in that case... I've been considering that combo also. I take it with all those fans you are running push-pull on your rads? Do you plan on running two loops or just one?

Just one loop...I think with the dual pumps/dual rads there won't be any issue running everything on one loop...if there is, I'll be able to switch it to a dual loop system pretty easily.

Have you considered using copper tubing? I've seen one or two builds using copper and they look awesome.

I've seen a few builds with all copper tubing. It looks really good, but isn't what I'm going for on this build. Just be patient, lots of updates coming in the next couple of weeks and you will see what I mean.

Update: 10/15/11

As promised, here are a few photos of what I've been up to the last couple of days.

I got my Aquatube and mounting hardware in yesterday. It's going to look great in the system once the case is ready! Here's a photo with the Aquabay put together:


Res mounted into the Aquabay:


Have made 2 orders so far with Jim at Case labs, placed a third for different mounting hardware, this should be here on Wed. of next week. In the meantime, I've been prepping the case for hardware. Still have to wire the new switches when they arrive and prepare my first surprise (hint...glow pads) All items for the case are now on order and scheduled to arrive next week. Some of the W/C parts are still back-ordered however...

MoBo side of case (once mounting hardware arrives, can begin to assemble the W/C gear:


Case from front (have removed vandal switches, replacements on the way. Also ordered a new USB 3.0 front header, may mod the case to fit it.)


PSU side of case...added new casters, PSU bracket, and fan brackets.




Drop in radiator mounts:


Also received a package from Fshizl today...all of my fittings arrived! (Packed REALLY well and shipped uber quick) Thanks again Fshizl!

Compressions:




45 and 90s:


Quick release fittings:


Custom modded by Fshizl himself! (From his M8 build)
