Keep up the good work

thanks! i got some more for ya, check this out..12/22/11 UPDATE
alright this is the coolest update so far imo, first off i got my first shipment of w/c parts, the radiators and fans. these were from performance-pcs, which i understand has lately been on "crud-list" for us watercoolers
i found this out after i bought my first set of parts though, so i hoped for the best..
this is what i saw when i opened the box:
everything was neatly packaged and i didn't receive any damaged items, even with UPS ground trucking from Florida to California lol.
but before i get into that, let me explain to you my solution for the stealthy pump/reservoir setup i got planned.
my think tank was chuggin' on this one and i really like what i thought of. here is a picture of what i thought..
this bracket would go on the backside of the case down by where the original hdd cage(s) went. that way, i could have a nice place to mount the pumps down below behind the 240 rad, with the 150ml reservoirs mounted right above them, where the hotswap hdd cage went. here's a visual..
now i can still use that space i created by removing the hdd cages but without completely blocking airflow intake from the front panel fan.
unfortunately when i put all the rads/fans in the case, i didn't take pictures along the way, it was 4am by the time i was done. but here it is:
i am very happy
had all 12 fans running, and with the door panel on, you would have NO idea it's on. my dad walked up to it and asked if i had it running yet and i just told him "it IS running!" muahahah
now i can show you my stealth pump plan, i'll also be able to run the hose pretty stealthy as well, i tried to take some pictures of how they'll run so you can see.
first off, the pump top. i grabbed two mcp350's because they were cheap, i can wire them to run like mcp355's, and they're just the perfect size for my plan, with the pump tops as the kicker
ordered 2 of these 2 days ago:
as you can see, these will allow me to run the pumps vertically with having to deal with the inlet from the top like normal tops.
for the record, i LOVE aquacomputer's stuff. i think i'll be going with their waterblocks as well
the pumps will be run vertically, on the aluminum panel i fabbed up, and the outlet hoses will run along here:
behind the 240 rad with bitspower fittings achieving the right turns where necessary.
and up top for running the inlet hoses back to the reservoirs..
behind the 360 rad, up in this crevice that i measured out, will be perfect for 3/8" hose (i will be only be running one hose there) i double checked that nothing will inhibit the hose up there as well, cause it seems too good to be true.
is where the hoses will travel thru to the reservoirs, as well as fill port hoses that i will have at the top of the case, that should be the last thing i have to modify on the case.
i need to get on paint and create the routing for the hoses so i can get a nice visual with this photo:
but i thought i'd update this first so you guys can enjoy
thanks guys!Edited by lifeisshort117 - 12/22/11 at 9:10pm
