I have 2 builds that are completely stuck in place until I can get some angled adaptors.
I'm switching my sig rig over to complete watercooling, plus a brand new computer based on the MSI BigBang II-X79. The 3930K is already mounted and I already have the screws necessary to use my HeatKiller 3.0 on the LGA2011 socket. The memory is stuck somewhere in the Postal Service in Greenville, SC. It left there and then returned and should've been here Monday. I gotta wait 5 business days to even ask them what's going on.
I need to get the MSI up and running asap in case there's something wrong with it. It looks as if I'm gonna have to do a quick, messy install in my Corsair 800DW with the Corsair H100 just to proof it, before I unmount it and remount it in the MountainMods U2-UFO.
I still gotta clean out the Thermochill 120.2 rad I found at JabTech. They had 2 listed, I bought one and now there are none left. That was a close call but at least I now have the TA120.2 to match the PA 120.3 in the front of the case. I'm planning on running the cpu block through the 120.2 then the videocards then the 120.3 to the reservoir and then back to the pump.
No, now that changed. I just ordered an XSPC mobo block set for the BigBang II so now I get to figure out a new plumbing route. cpu>mobo blocks>rad 1>videocards>Rad 2> Res>Pump>CPU block. I think that's right. Still, it's gonna be a ***** and a half with no angled fittings to work with and I still don't know what angles Monsoon is gonna have available so I can finalize my loop design.
Looks like I can completely forget a smooth watercooling building experience. This is getting completely out of hand since I don't have the fittings I absolutely need.
On top of that, the angles I need will no doubt sell out before I even know that they're available, if and/or when they ever are.
Too bad I'll be missing the fancy bullet clip and mini Gatling gun on the BigBang II. From what I've read, they're practically worthless for cooling anyway.
