That looks terrible. Just plain terrible. Let me PM you my address and you can just get it out of your sight. tongue.gif

Great build! I love that you jumped in head first to both PCs and water cooling.

I didn't see anything in my inbox... I guess you missed out. Too late now.tongue.gif

Yah... I jumped head first... I just hope the water is deep enough. I still need to water test over the weekend... so I'm not out of the water yet... LOL...biggrin.gif

First of all, your build is beautiful! Love the case, love the white tubing, love the sleeving!

Q. Could you give me an exact measurement (in mm) from the top of the inside of the case to the top of your MB?

Soon I'll be switching to this case and I need to know what thickness RAD I can use while still using P/P 25mm fans (AP-15s). If possible I would like to avoid using any type of shroud on top of the case.

Thanks for your time.

Thanks... Took me a while to do, but happy with the results. I'll try to PM you the measurements tonight when I get home form work.

Little update... is I filled it up with water last night, and did the tilt method, and flipping the switch off and on... but I just could get the air out. My gentle tilt method started to turn into violent shaking... LOL.. Just when I thought I was going to have one of those RP-452x2 bleeding nightmares I've read in many threads... I had a clumsy moment. I unscrewed the stop plug screw on the top of the res to fill it with more water, and it desided to fall behind the res between the pump and the side of the case.doh.gif

I went to get another plug so I can get the other plug out. I had te turn case upside down, and tilt it to the side, and it fell out of the case. I took out the temporary plug, and noticed the res was completely empty, so first thing I thought... "did all the water leak out?" Couldn't find any leaks, so refilled the res, flipped the swtich, and the pumps were quieter... and I could see micro bubbles in the clear tubes, so it was flowing pretty good. I went back to the gentle tilts and couple of little shakes to be sure... and bleeding went pretty quick... I still have some micro bubbles on the face of the res... which is common for this res. I topped it off, and went to sleep. Woke up this morning, and the water level dropped in the res, so there is air still working it's way out. Topped it off again before leaving for work.

I know there is probably an easier way to do this... but since it's my first time, I learn as I go. No leaks... so it's looking good so far.smile.gif

UPDATE 19-NOV-2011: ***COMPLETED***

I haven't updated my thread in a while because... I've been enjoying my computer.smile.gif Currently playing BF3...

Although it took me a long time to build... since I wasn't sure what I was doing... I am really happy how it came out. I learned a lot from this experience... and look forward to learning more on another future build. Thank you all for the kind words and support... and thank you for taking this awesome journey with me.

For the record... the hard to bleed Koolance RP-452x2 issue isn't the case with rev 1.3. After I turned my case upside down, and it didn't take long to bleed.

Nice work

Brother you have become one of the guys who can give out advice now for sure. I Have learned so much by pouring over and over your pics while in my design stage that I can't thank you enough! I'm thinking about dual looping a corsair 650d, i have one of the GPUs you have, seeing yours i decided to get another. I'm in kuwait and when I was in iraq I have been ordering parts having them shipped home so when I get there I can put it all together on my 30 days leave. I am def going to be asking you some questions if you are down. Your sleeves you put on look awesome and everything is so super smooth. Could you imagine doing this in a smaller case or was it hard enough in that case? What do you think would be the biggest problem with doing it in a smaller case just time? Or is it just not possible as you see it? I can dig your pump setup too, thumb.gif

Also,

i was following your sleeving then it hit me, that PSU comes with sleeving right? did you undo what it came with just to fit your grand scheme or did it hit you later to change the color scheme, i read it all i think if i missed you talking about this already my error,
