So great and not so great news today.
First, lets get the not so great new out of the way.
So I received a package today that was supposed to have some more bitspower fittings and my resevoir. I got the fittings, but no resevoir. They shipped it out looks like today using fedex ground. Ugg, on a holiday weekend. I guess I will have to spend some more time on wire management.

And now for the GREAT news.
So I received an email this morning from AquaTuning and they want to send me the rest of the Phobya fans and lighting I need to

finish this case. WOW, you guys rock. Thank You AquaTuning and Phobya for your generosity and great products.

I will now be rocking 28 fans in this case. Yes a bit over kill, but defenatly sweet. the radiator will be on full. the others

will be tuned down. I'm realy wanting another radiator now. I will have to see once the fans get here what everything looks like put togeather.

I picked up a new camera last night, so I've got a couple more pictures and will be taking more as i make progress.

So after talking to frozencpu, for some reason the usps tracking number was showing up as a fedex tracking number. Weird... So i received the resevoir on wednesday. Nice looking resevoir. Problem started with mounting holes for the res. Drilled couple holes into my bracket and that was fixed. I mounted the pump on the back with the brackets. and was ready to go. filled it with coolant and plugged the pump in to a bench power supply to leak test it. well the pump impeller bottoms out on the housing. it was not drilled deep enough when they fabbed it up. ok so i replaced the rubber O-ring with a little larger diameter one that came with the pump. Well it will spin now but there is no flow. it moved it maybe a 1/16 of an inch out. It should have worked great. but when I took a closer look at it, they drilled too deep on the outlet and actualy drilled into the inlet. I sent frozencpu some pictures and called them. they said it could be another 2 week. Uhg.

A quick stop to the hardware store. I picked up some 1/2 ID hose and a couple reducers and temped in my water lines to so i could get this beast up and running.

I talked to the guys at AquaTuning and they should be sending me out some stuff here shortly. I was looking at getting another radiator, when i went to look at getting a Black Ice sr1 420 for above the mobo. I can't beleive they sell the 420 for $20 more than the 480. I might just move my blueray drive an get another 480. anyway, here are some more pictures. I will post more as they come in. And yes, the zip ties will be coming off when im done with the wire management.

Beautiful rig. I wanted a case labs case so bad, but decided to just modify my Antec 1200 to get it to do everything I wanted. Love this build though, bravo......thumb.gif

So my sata power cables were looking pretty bad, so I decided to sleeve my drives tonight. Here is what it used to look like, and what it looks like now

Well, after taking thoughs pictures I thought I would play a little with the camera and take some more pictures.
First 2 are of the old school sewing of the cables. Picked this idea up from franks build. I love the old school look.
The resevoir looks more orange and pink then red. Kinda disapointed in that.
So.. I went down and picked up 2 red leds that im going to some how mount on the ends of the red coils inside of it.
Was thinking about imbedding them into the acrylic, not sure as there is no room on the ends. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

So after a little bit of overclocking, I was able to get my processor stable at over 5 ghz. I backed it off to 4.8 ghz to run at. I was playing around with the gpu today and did a couple benchmarks with 3dmark 11. Here are the results. http://3dmark.com/3dm11/2263223

The Temps on this card are great. Under full load at these settings I haven't gone over 40. The cpu seems to run about 40 to 50.

Its been a busy week with thanksgiving and work, so I havent got a lot done. I'm mostly waiting on parts. I received the 4 back ordered fans today and installed them to get an idea of what things will look like. I did get some wire management done. made and sleeved the sata power cables and started building some cords for my fan controller. Looking at the pictures, I think I'm sold on getting another radiator. probably a 360 for above the motherboard.
I talked to the guys from FrozenQ, and they are sending me out a replacement peice for the resevoirs pump mount. Once the fans and lighting get here from Aquatuning, I can start realy digging into the wiring on the power supply side. I will be cutting all the fan cable to the exact legth i need and resleeving them. I plan to put the additional radiator in at the same time I mount the pump on the back of the radiator.
I have been looking for some UV Red Vinyl to make some decals for the inside. I have 24" vinyl plotter and for the life of me I can't seem to find this kind of vinyl. I checked my local distributor and they dont have anything like it. I know they make it, cause I have seen in decals with it. Well, heres a couple more pictures.
