Worked on the acrylic today. Cut it down to the final size and drilled out the holes for the LEDs. I decided to use a piece of frosted acrylic on top to hide the LEDs a little better. What do you all think? Sorry for the crap shots, my phone simply cannot handle the LED brightness (I need to bring in a better camera!)

Prepping for the LED holes

Here's the mockup with the smooth sheet on top to diffuse the light.

All lit up! I may need to change my loop around seeing how close the 45s are to the cover. Not sure yet as I still don't have that part nailed down. Once I do, I will drill out the cover for tubing.

Getting closer by the day! I am going to finalize my loop so I can finish the acrylic portion of the build. Once that is done, I can start some final assembly.

Still to do (in no particular order):
  • Sleeve PSU (doing the shrinkless paracord trick found here - CLICKY. Going with Black, Dark Gray, and Navy Blue.) I have a complete extra set of PSU cables coming from Corsair (for free!) so I can do custom lengths and still have the originals.
  • Sleeve all extra connections
  • Install final fan
  • Mount pumps to Shoggy Sandwiches/Mount sandwiches to case/Wire to pump controller
  • Clean up wiring in pedestal/Connect to fan controller
  • Install MOBO
  • Install PSU
  • Run tubing
  • Install HDDs
  • Have cover cut on waterjet for slot dvd
  • Mount DVD
  • Leak test
  • I am probably missing a few things . . . wink.gif

Got bored with all the sleeving I have to do for fans and power so I decided to work on the main unit today (still need to clean up wiring in the pedestal). Installed a few things and got some new toys.

Installed the final fans in the rear along with moving the HDDs back there from the front.

Installed the PSU, MOBO brace, MOBO, and video cards.

Here are the new toys - paracord in black, navy blue, and gray. Also picked up a new sound card. I have been running without one for years. However, I went over to a buddy's and played BF3 (he has this same card) and was blown away - literally and figuratively! I knew I had to pick one up (thank you Amazon Prime.) This card is much better for music as well although my only reference is how the onboard sound processing sounds. I understand there are better cards for audiophiles (I consider myself one), but I will listen to music only 10-20% of the time on this system.

I made some cooling loop changes so I am waiting on a few new connectors. I always have the issue of planning and then reality on my builds. Doesn't quite work out sometimes. Not a big deal, just needed some 90s to make things fit properly. Not sure if I will get much done between now and the New Year so Merry Christmas to everyone (or Happy Holidays if you want the PC version - no offense) and have a Happy New Year!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! I am prohibited by my better half (see avatar) not to work on the sig rig while all the family is at the house, but I was able to steal away for a half hour or so today and lay out my loops and install my sound card (see previous post.) Here are some pics of the initial tubing up top.

Random Loop Shots - Enjoy!

Still no joy on my extra power cables from Corsair even though they say they were sent out. That's good news in a way since I wouldn't be allowed to sleeve over the Holidays anyway (sheesh like I need to spend time with my family or something!)

Again, season's greetings to all you insane OCers out there (go big or go home - if it's too loud, you're too old, etc., etc.)

OK I have a few problems so let me ask the group for some suggestions. First, my office email server crashed out hard today (second time in 2011 - looks like I will buying a new server for the New Year - awesome) so I cannot post pics of my water loop. I took them this morning before the crash, had them all set to post, then blammo - dead server.

Here's my other, rig-related, problem: What to do with draining the loop. I have attempted to show my water loop below, but it really doesn't do a good job since in 3D it's much more complicated. So here's my attempt at explaining my problem -

I have all the components being cooled in the main unit (top) with the pumps and rads in the pedestal base. ALL tubing goes through the acrylic divider (have good pics, but no posty since no servey) and I need to somehow drain the system for maintenance, etc. I have yet to leak test this loop and so far don't know how much fluid will run "south" thereby allowing me to remove tubing from various fittings to get the main unit off of the pedestal.

Anyone out there have a similar setup? Anyone with some good ideas?

I was thinking about drilling out access holes in the pedestal to get to my quick disconnects to drain the loop. Or I may even cut out an entire section (create a door-type floor) to allow complete access to the pedestal. I am a little stuck since my push for ascetics over function has left me in a bit of a bother.

This sucks I know, but it's the best I can do after two bottles of wine!
700

So I need a drain option - take a look at the previous posts to get an idea of how the main unit and pedestal work. At the moment I am leaning toward punching holes in the pedestal and exiting 1/2 of my quick disconnects out there so I can connect the other ends. Any better options?

Thanks in advance for the ideas.

Finally got the drain setup squared away in my head. I will use a couple of splitters from my pumps and use 2 panel mount connectors. My loop will now have two 90s coming from the top of the water blocks into the splitters, then onto the components, and out the bottom to the connectors mounted in the pedestal base. Underneath I will connect a hose and one end of a quick disconnect and secure that to the bottom of the case so it doesn't just hang there. Then when I want to drain the system I can open the reservoirs, connect a QD, and all empty.

Here's a weak layout of the pedestal loop drain
480

Parts should be in on Tuesday from Koolance. Still no joy on the cables from Corsair even though two email responses say they are on their way (no tracking info though so I'm starting to wonder.)

Very sweet build!

And you're giving me plenty of ideas for my Extended Ascension build...shame on you!

Can't wait for the rest of the build!!!

Got my Koolance parts today so I can work on finalizing the water. I also received the cables I asked for from Corsair. Below are some pics.

Koolance parts waiting to go - I have drilled the pedestal base for the pass-through barbs.

Here are some sleeving shots. I love working with paracord! So much easier than MDPC and shrink wrap. Not pictured are the 5 more fan extensions and some random power cables I got done today.

The sleeving continues . . . Off for some skiing the rest of the week so no real updates until next week some time. Happy New Year!

From the looks of your angled compression fittings, you got the "one-piece-does-all" fitting.

You didn't try the two of these together?

Bitspower G 1/4" Thread 60 Degree Rotary Fitting Adapter - Matte Black (BP-MB60R)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13717/ex-tub-980/Bitspower_G_14_Thread_60_Degree_Rotary_Fitting_Adapter_-_Matte_Black_BP-MB60R.html?tl=g30c101s1505

Koolance 1/2" x 3/4" (13mm x 19mm) G1/4 Threaded Compression Nozzle - Black (NZL-V13-19KG-BK)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13373/koo-296/Koolance_12_x_34_13mm_x_19mm_G14_Threaded_Compression_Nozzle_-_Black_NZL-V13-19KG-BK.html?tl=g30c409s1033

Just curious.

My Extended Ascension is in the mail. The Pedestal24 is awaiting a triple back panel before it ships.

Keep up the good work...you give me hope that my build will be worthwhile, but probably not as artistic as yours!

Cheers!

Not so with Bitspower. Any lateral pressure and tubing comes off easily. I wish Koolance made 45 degree fittings. sadsmiley.gif
