^some parts migrated in for more accurate space planning. i think i was overly optimistic with the first loop diagram. some problems are evident and will have to be troubleshooted...troubleshot? troublesometihnged.

imag0249e.jpg
imag0250s.jpg
^what the bottom looks like with the rad in. another thing on the to do list is to add some u-channel or some other kind of rubber to the edges to smooth out the look of the cut, and find some sort of mesh plastic to attach to the removable filter so it covers the rad.

imag0241v.jpg
^arrived from Asus today. tested with furmark, gamed for a few hours. switched pcie slots. repeated. seems ok now.

imag0267nx.jpg
^reunited with his brother

imag0266j.jpg
^going to add a metal beam here for support. removing the lower hdd cage makes this shelf weak and it will lean with weight

imag0264o.jpg
^one thing not talked about much is the amount of soldering you will be doing with liquid cooling. all these fans need to be connected somehow. for now I spliced them into each other, taped them off, and hid them a bit. in the finished product i will go back and solder these all for a nice tight fit and tuck them away.

imag0263mo.jpg
^top down view of the case. another thing to consider is the hardware you secure your rads to the case with. here i secured the fans to the case and rads using the long screws that came with the rad, where in the bottom i used much shorter m4 screws (which is temporary since they still need washers) and then used the longer screws to attach the fans to the rad

imag0262g.jpg
^problemo numero uno. with fittings this res is huge. only a few inches to spare no matter which way it is laid out in the case. getting it to attach to the top rad and the pump, while having the pump face a logical direction will be difficult.

imag0259y.jpg
^more modding required here, will probably remove that 140 case fan, drill/cut two holes for the hoses from the rads and then remove and use the rubber grommets from the holes already there to pad them.

imag0256s.jpg
^the top rad extended a bit further forward than i expected

imag0257us.jpg
^better look at the top rad, from this angle, it's clear the tubing will have to be angled to go into the already problematic res. also had to move the bluray drive down to accomidate it.

imag0247v.jpg
^pic of my ram. heatsinks are nice. i really just like my ram, this doesnt belong here.



going to game a bit more, want to make sure the 2nd card is solid. tomorrow i will mess around with the layout again and see if i can get something that makes sense and order any angled fittings i will need so i can start putting in the blocks and tubing

I used inexpensive u-channel from mcmaster.com (part no. 8510K11)
SBR Rubber Edge Trim, 1/32" Opening, 5/32" Inside Depth

It came out to like $8.00 shipped for 10 feet. I have a few pics of the u-channel installed on my 800D. The link is in my sig if you want to see it. It doesn't look to bad for the price.

just ordered pump top and fittings

called sidewinder computers today as well, guy on the phone was very helpful, advised me on which pump top would fit, and which fittings could fit side by side on the top, and also pointed out that my plan of using two 90 degree fittings off of the pump is a bad idea. apparently restricting flow directly off of the pump like that isnt good, so i will have to look at different ways to mount the pump when the top arrives.

i think using the male to female adapters to extend the fittings outward from the maze 5 blocks will fix my problem with the fittings not being able to be side by side. also instead of a huge loop going from one maze to the other, i plan to extend off of one maze with the male to female adapter then use a 90 degree adapter. i will mimic this on the other maze, and have a small tube in between the two 90 degree adapters. this is all theory and measuring though, so hopefully this works.

the other issue i hope to tackle with adapters and clever placement/new pump top is the space limitation with how huge the res is.

will update when the parts get here.

parts came in today. going to attempt assembly! any potential pitfalls i should know of before diving in?

here's some pics as well:

videoerror2.jpg
^video error, I got this about 4 or 5 times one day before this next picture happened:

imag0270t.jpg
^this happened after the few video errors. moving the mouse around made the windows look like that old pc game "MDK". all these weird polygon splits and such. I'm kinda worried about voiding the one card's warranty now, even though it just came back from ASUS. i rebooted, and checked to see that the drivers were current and havnt had an issue since though, and this has been a few days. mind you, i usually pass out near the computer with video running all night (and always have) so for a few days of heavy video play, I'm assuming i'm in the clear.

imag0271xc.jpg
^sidewinder computers always top notch

imag0278l.jpg
^everything ready to go

imag0272r.jpg

imag0279w.jpg
^something i wish someone had done for me, a measurer and bank note for size reference. disregard the neon green, apparently paintshop doesnt like you using bank notes in images.

imag0277ux.jpg
^i thought this would be interesting to share. the fitting on the left is what you get when you combine 1/2" fitting with a 90 degree fitting that has a g1/4 female socket, and the fitting on the right is what it will look like if you just purchase the whole piece together. also, theyre both rotary. they end up being about the same size, with the fatter ends of the fitting in different areas. i found this very interesting for people like myself who might have clearance issues with certain objects inside the case.

imag0273t.jpg
^pump dissassembled

imag0274r.jpg
^pump side view

imag0275ns.jpg
^front pump view

imag0276.jpg
^bottom/front view of the pump. i wanted to show where all the ins and outs were. that was another thing that was difficult to see from images online.

good work so far, don't forget to support the lining above the 240 rad since you took the support out (hdd rack)

finished the assembly of tubing. leak tested.booted up and ran some stuff. gunna game and see how it handles under load. warning: took lots of pics. too many to add my little commentaries too. i think its fairly obvious though, even out of order and context what was going on, and how i deviated from the original planning in certain areas because of pitfalls that arose. the main one being the graphics cards would not connect with two 90 degree fittings facing each other (they were too close) and that the supplied danger den acrylic bar was too thick so i had to fashion a metal one. in any event, a **** ton of pics:
