Haha too true. They didn't even come yesterday because I stayed in all day. Now I can't leave the house until five just in case...

Just charging the battery then I'll try and make a video review of the case. Wish I had a good camera though. Last time I used my iphone, this time I'm trying my little camera on a tripod to reduce the shakycam aspect, but I'm not sure how well it will work out. Ideally I'd like an HD camera with a flip screen and a remote that can zoom, but most of them that have all of that are pricey or have really slow focus times. If anyone has a recommendation let me know!

Hahah well true - but given that it's only use would be for filming the build, seems a lot to spend 500 on a camera for that :-p

Fedex came, pics soon

Alrighty the fedex guy came, so here's some unboxing action:

Woooh packing

Opened some boxes - the front rad is an ex560 - not quite sure why this was the first 560 rad that XSPC made.

Mora 140.9 revealed - way thicker than the EX of course

Can you say quick disconnects?

Yeah even the 560 looks small haha.

2nd update of the day:-

So I played around with my own version of the big slappy mod for the Iwaki - the idea is you tap the cylinder res for a much larger feed for the pump. The pump can't be on it's back so you need a nice slow 90 degree bend. The tough part is then getting down to the 5/8 OD pipe that is the inlet to the Iwaki. Here I used 1" pipe going to a 1/2" female converter fitted with a 5/8" brass barb. I butted the barb up right against the inlet and stretched some 0.5" tube over it:

XwlvOh.jpg

The feed may not be quite as good as the original big slappy as that only had a bout 3/4" of 5/8 inlet tube, vs this 2.5" on this version. However the downpipe is 1" instead of the 3/4" that was used. So hopefully the extra width balances it out a bit. Here's a photo of the original big slappy:

4270331234_ccd8bcfac4_o.jpg

and amuseme's version:

IMG_1608copy.jpg

We'll see I might change to what they did, I feel like it might have better performance.

Also started spray painting test colors on a dead GT. I made a quick spray booth:

P4B7Zh.jpg

SKTlWh.jpg

Done - there's some metallic flake in the paint, the color isn't quite as orange as the tube though:

punuJh.jpg

Reassembled (kinda)

ms7H2h.jpg

Then a final comparison with it mounted on the 120 rad (this rad is just for the motherboard block loop). The rad will be painted silver to match:

0y5Fnh.jpg

So what do you think? Are the colors close enough? Both are slightly off. I wonder if I can get a color match from the powder coat supplier. I think I'll look for a different red at the least tomorrow. The match does depend on the lighting though.

Did you ambush the fedex guy, or how'd you manage to catch him? biggrin.gif

I'm just laughing at the 120 rad next to EX560 and MORA... If you didn't have the Iwaki pump, I'd say that the 120 just hinders the performance due to restriction... tongue.gif
The silver/grey on the fan looks fine, but the red is kinda off... It's a deeper red than the orange-ish tube. But if you were to run red coolant in the tube, would it make it a closer match?

Haha yeah about 1 min after I posted the guy came. Our doorbell doesn't work, so every time I heard a truck slow down for the last two days I'd be running to the front door lol.

Yeah I don't think any dye will change anything, seems I'll go and try a different color.

Got some more today seeing as I got done with my deadline yesterday. I wanted to get the 120 rad painted to match the fan to see how it looks and what fittings to go with. So I started sanding down the brand new gt stealth:

ec0teh.jpg

Masked it off and applied primer:

aIDLlh.jpg

Then painted a matching cover to dress up the fan a little:

bRMFyh.jpg

While I was waiting for paint to dry, I put together the quick disconnect pairs, some will mount to panels with a g1/4 fitting on the other side, while some screw directly into radiators:

KU2A5h.jpg

Then I realized I need two more pairs...

I also did some work on the pump mounting. I added a drain port to the inlet tube and mapped out the cuts I wanted to make to the base panel. Air has to flow through the base panel, so there has to be some cut outs. Because the pump will vibrate, I'm worried about making the noise worse with a floppy piece of metal, so I was thinking to stiffen it with two 1" by 1/4" steel bars screwed underneath the base plate (these are the two dark shaded strips. I'll have to add some rubber strips to try and isolate the baseplate from the frame also.

a6y3Xh.jpg

Here's a quick look at the painted rad from earlier with the fan on top:

1Lcwyh.jpg

And here's a piece of acrylic that was laser cut and then painted to match. The dimensions aren't quite right though:

yE8Uth.jpg

Not sure whether to do something like this or not. I don't think I should use the zerg symbol anyway as it doesn't match the theme, but it's fun to play around.

Originally I had wanted to paint all the fans, then I got lazy and thought, well I'm more likely to screw them up by painting them (imbalanced rotors and all), plus they won't be seen so who cares. So I took a look to see if I could justify lazy or not: Here are the stock typhoons showing:

R5T0jh.jpg

Here's one painted typhoon just rested up in there. Obviously the space around the fan (fan adapter) would be painted silver too so it would blend better. The red can't be seen too well though:

4ZOFzh.jpg

So I figure I have four options:

A) leave the GTs stock (lazy and quieter but looks ugly)
B) paint the GTs housing only and leave the rotor grey (quiet but stands out less
C) paint the GT fully (risks noise from a now unbalanced rotor and doesn't look much better than option b)
D) paint the GT fully and add some white LEDs to actually show the metallic red rotor off a little bit

What do you all think?
