Ahaha- Believe me, I am dedicating most all of my free time to this- hence the train wreak of a messy abode haha!


Update time!
I received a package from Sidewinder computers. They have great prices on fittings and radiators and their shipping is pretty fast too. I got a bunch of push in SLI fittings, a couple 280 radiators, and some thermal paste-

img0766xs.jpg

The 280 rads are a much better fit than the 240's. I just have to figure how to attach them... thinking.gif

img0771a.jpg

img0769wf.jpg

I got a couple other packages too, one from performance pc's and the other from ebay. No free shirt from Hank at ppcs this time. Maybe I didn't spend enough $$ lol rolleyes.gif

img0777zg.jpg

Here's the used 1/2" pipe bender that I ordered from ebay. It cost me $37.50 shipped.

img0778vo.jpg

I got these from PPc's.
NZXT mix fan controller for the top 5.25" bay-

EK-D5 140 res/pump top

I started the tubing. The 1/2" copper pipe that I bought is indeed too thick to fit into the fittings mad.gif on the small straight pieces, I was able to stick them into a drill, and grind them down while it was spinning in the drill. It is pretty time consuming. It has to fit all the way in the fitting, and be tight. I messed up the L shaped piece like 3 times, I has to grind it down, and it took me a few tries. one ended up too short, one got messed up when I was thinning the ends... Third time was a charm haha! I decided to run the cards in parallel instead of running them in series, mostly for looks, but I have read a article (on Toms I think) that showed that running multiple cards in parallel resulted in better temps and flow rates. I'm liking the looks of the reflective backplates thumb.gif

img0784xq.jpg

I had to break off these two tabs.. No HDD bays for sure now... I'm going to miss not having an internal optical drive, but will make due with an external. I have other computers in the house that can burn disks, so I'll only have to use when installing games/software.. I think the end look/result will be worth the missing optical drive-

img0788q.jpg

I got another tube bent. This one has the right length/angle on the first attempt! Still, I'm glad I got twenty feet of tubing haha. I still have to grind down the ends so it will fit in the fittings though. It will be lower, but I need a hole cut in the floor above the psu for it to go through.

img0795bp.jpg

This is pretty much what the loop will look like wubsmiley.gif

img0811d.jpg

The tubes will run through the floor and come back up into the res/pump top toward the front of the case. I still have tons of work to do.. but I'm not telling what I still have to come mod-wise although Lane probably knows what I have in mind wink.gif

I need to finish polishing the tubes and clear coat them, take everything out of the case, do some more cutting and modding. I think I am going to need to order a couple more fittings to keep things tidy, and some more stuff too. I am pretty stoked with how the copper pipes are looking.

What do you guys think?

Sorry guys for the lack of updates the last few days... My house was/is a total wreck, my girl just has surgeury, and work has been pretty busy. Life in general, but I have some stuff to share- Just have to upload the pics.
Back in a few thumb.gif

well the adhesion promoter can be found in rattle cans. that's what im using in my build right now, since my brother moved to florida don't have spray guns anymore.

look on ebay for bulldog adhesion promoter there's a guy selling 4 cans for 29.99. trust me I live by this stuff.

here is a link to my build giving you how to go about steps to paint with this stuff. steps on working with adhesion promoter

Hey Bob,

GREAT Build, I was wondering if you had known of anyone doing a guide breaking down the CM2? I'm a little stuck on getting that front drive bay door off.... :X


RRS feed makes keeping track of this a lot easier!!!!
