[Build Log] First rig update "Going Black": X79 RIV BE, 4930k, Tri-SLI 780's, Black Acrylic Tubing - Page 11

Awesome build for a first timer. Wish I could also do this nonetheless great job TS!

Hey man, You're an inspiration to first time watercooling builders like myself. The build I'm piecing together has a lot of similar components. I have to thank the guys/gals on these forums for all the suggestions. If you put in the research you can put together a beautiful rig(like you're doing). You read 20 separate topics asking, "What parts should I use?!?"(I think half my bookmarks consist of these topics) and you'll come out with a lot of great recommendations. Awesome stuff........and sub'd

Yes, research and this forum is a great source for information. I'm learning everyday... but I still question myself if I'm doing this right. I just have to ride the bullet, and hope hits home.


Little update

Tonight I worked on some cable management. Cable management sucks... but it's the only way to keep the cable police quiet... lol...

The way I have the cables exiting worked best for me to route the cables into the PSU compartment. I lost a lot room with the 240 rad in the way.




Tested if I could close the side panel.... and....



It closed with ease....

Next... installing water tubing....

SWEET!!! You're doing such a great job. Btw, you've inspired me to sleeve my cables now (contacted FTWPC) and redo my cable management.

Dude, I'm using extensions which in turn causes my cables to be even longer which makes cable management very hard with all the excess cable lengths in the back. Plus, my PSU cables are not sleeved at all.

Ah... I see. I see your point on more cable to work with in managing. However, if I had more cable to work with, I would have routed my wires differently... where wires don't cross over each other. I was still able to close my side panel easily... so no harm with the layered cables.

UPDATE

Still working on wire connections and cable management...

Worked on the tubing, but it isn't finalized. I'm still waiting on Koolance QD's, and not satisfied on the tightening on my compression fittings. Didn't realize how hard it was to work with compression fittings. My fingers are torn up. frown.gif

After I get my koolance QD's, I'll connect tubing to the upper rad, and reservior. Hope I feel a little more confident when I start water testing my loop. Getting close, but not quite there yet.
