Alright here's the quick video update as I haven't had time to edit the pics yet. This is about halfway through what's been done. One thing I've found with this case is that it's so large, that every wire needs to be lengthened rolleyes.gif

Skip to the end to see the comparison of an antec 300 to the TX10 lol

No comments people? Why'd it get so quiet? Is everyone busy working overtime to go buy a single stage for their new 3770K?

So I finally tidied up the house. For some reason the wife was unhappy with every available surface being covered with stuff. This means I can start processing some photos.

So I started off by putting together the workstation upgrade. My gaming rig can be down, but I still have to work, so that's the first priority. The workstation consists of two loops:

1. i7-3930K - Mora3 140x9 - Dual PMP450S (D5 Strong)

2. EK R4E full cover block - 2 EK ram blocks - EK 8800GT block - D5 Vario - EK 250 cylinder res

As most of loop 2 was done, I started work on loop 1. So I started off mounting the fans to the mora3. Here it is with the CaseLabs "Super Mount". There are four dedicated mounting points independent of the fans which is nice:

BpHDuh.jpg

This means you can just mount the fans to the supermount and not the radiator:

uhfHLh.jpg

This is useful for cleaning because you can just undo the four mounting screws between the supermount and the rad. I.E. You don't have to remove every single fan for cleaning. FYI the fans are low speed 140mm yates (700rpm). I chose these because I wanted something cheap and quiet, and yates are both of those when at 700rpm.

Here's the super mount with fans mounted placed on top of the rad:

9ksQ3h.jpg

Then I attached the rad to the super mount:

WCHx8h.jpg

The only downside to this is a tiny gap between the fan and the rad. However it's small enough that I don't think it will cause a problem:

tzfwch.jpg

Here it is mounted in the top of the case:

LoWguh.jpg

I then attached the quick disconnects to the CPU block for loop 1. Originally they were going to attach to the case and then have compression fittings on the cpu block. However there wasn't enough room to make the 90 degree turn, so i think this works better:

R0yOCh.jpg

In the final setup I'll have some bitspower pass throughs that go to the top chamber. For now the tubing curves around to the drive bay area where the temporary reservoir and pumps are:

CnrRUh.jpg

Again you can see the pink vs red tube. Primochill have shipped me some replacement tube - so props to them for taking care of it.

I would love to build my own computer like this one with an amazing water cooling loop. I have to wait a few years though to do so but there is a silver lining because in a few years even better CPU's and GPU's will be available not to mention cheaper SSD's, better RAM, and motherboards.

lol sorry 'bout not posting, been pretty busy with home, school and work. Damn Ivy bridge, giving me extra work... tongue.gif
That setup looks great, real nice to see it actually assembled in the case. That one tube certainly looks to be off... biggrin.gif How's the 5noz btw?

Haha that's allowed wink.gif The 5Noz is good, the ports are really widely spaced which is good for the QDC's which are huge. The mounting thumb nuts were annoyingly close to the ram, but that's life. You can use regular nuts if you care. Temps seem good, stock was in the 40's under load, folding at 4.9GHz I'm in the mid 60's. I'll do a side by side of the raystorm with it one of these days.

It's pretty quiet too, although it would be quieter if I replaced the AP15s on loop 2 with more low speed yates but I'm waiting to paint them before switching over. The dual D5 strongs are now the noisiest thing in the system. Can't run them at 24V due to the noise, but the temps don't get much worse if I run them at 12V. When I mount them to the dual D5 top I'll have to work on the vibration and noise insulation lol.

I'll pretty much be doing photo updates every day this week. I only do about 10 photos per post because certain other forums like to complain otherwise.

So any thoughts on sleeving? I was going to leave it to the end, but I have to lengthen the PSU wires because the case is so damn big.

I was thinking mdpc-x dark grey with one red strip on one end?

Kinda like this but with no black:

Sheeesh! Every time I come here I"m flabergasted at the shear size of that beast.

Say stren, I'm a strong proponent of single loops so I'm curious as to what's your thinking behind so many loops. What's the advantage of 5 loops versus just one per machine?

And when I grow up, I wanna build a machine like yours! biggrin.gif

Haha thanks! Yes for most builds 1 loop makes a lot of sense, more rads means best coolant temps overall. In my case I'm trying to isolate loops that aren't high performance but have decent restriction (motherboard, ram) from the loops where I care (workstation cpu or gaming cpu/gpu). This way I can keep flow high where I care by avoiding unnecessary restriction. Otherwise to get the same performance you need to have really high pressure pumps (imagine 2 iwakis in series) and then you run into issues with fittings or blocks blowing out. In the end, it probably doesn't make a noticeable difference, so it really comes down to just having fun with it thumb.gif

If you wanted to water cool the CPU, RAM, Motherboard, and two 680's would you need to run two loops? Also 5 loops, I'm gonna have to go back and read up on everything your running, I don't even know what would use so many loops.
