Great looking build.

How did you round the metal mesh in your cut outs?

I'm sure the pros have terms and methods for it, I used to work in a sheet metal shop so I have access to a few machines and what not, but really all I did was take some simple tools and just worked at it, taking my time on it to get it perfect, light hammer taps and bending with seamers and vice grips.

These come in really handy

Its the kind of thing with a little bit of knowledge and a lot of interest/desire to get a decent product, anyone can do. Dont be afraid to start over or mess up, just dive in and see what comes of it

Heres where impatience may come back to bite you, I think I'm ok haha, but proper planning would have prevented modding the case with my mobo in there.. or just taking the time to take the mobo out before I bust out a hole saw lol.. I had a good laugh though. Took the precaution of lining everything in plastic wrap so all the shavings should be trapped, and I will vacuum out everything afterwards.

To those of you trying to use thicker rads or a 360 up top.. you may find that plate that sits in the middle of the bay cage will get in your way, I needed room to tubing through, got creative with the 1" hole saw I had laying around. Yes I could have been neater but a little bit of touch up paint will fix it, it will be hidden anyways. Finally got my fittings in so I will be working on the loop this afternoon and will get back with some pictures once its in

Went ahead and just removed the whole plate that I had drilled into with the hole saw, decided to just let my stuff breath instead of weaving around the piece. Left the rails so my fan controller will still slide right in
700

I have the rads back in, fans in place, and some tubing done, I need to pick up a 45 for my first res to 360 connection and I should be good to go

450
450
I know some people will call for more 45's on the gpu-240 connection.. but I like how it looks as is, instead of having bulky fittings everywhere, the aesthetics of the tubing with natural bends just looks good to me

Lastly.. having a nightmare time with the sleeving.. the pins on this Seasonic PSU just will not come out.. I have the set of tools recommended and I think I know what I'm doing.. but damn if they'll come out. Its about 50/50 chance the head comes out or the cable just pulls out of the bottom. Any thoughts?

Awesome. Thanks for the info. I may have to try that sometime.

Alright, undecided about how this loop looks. Its not finished I still have to bring a tube from the 240 at the bottom up back to the pump. It has sort of a cyclical look to it, showing off the water cooling, round bends as opposed to straight, jutting lines. I think I like it this way, as I see it there isn't like excess tubing its about as tight as I can get it.. what do you guys think?

And secondly.. should I bring the last line up through the case in front of the GPU or should I run it out the back and then pop into the case at the last grommet there, close to the res?

450
450

I like how the green looks though for sure!


EDIT: After looking at it Im also thinking I could reverse the whole loop.. heres what it does now, the red curved line is the proposed last tube.
450
If I reverse it, it would give me a little more space to get up into the 360.. anyone have ideas?

Subbed bro.; This is looking amazing. I really like what you are doing with the colors. I love to see the wild bill work from dwood. I have been wanting to find a way to show off the front fans. I think I have a really cool idea thanks to this build, but I have to make it original.

Loop is looking awesome. One question, hows come you put the gpu in the bottom slot? I think it would look better higher on the board and having the longer tube going down to the rad. However, it looks awesome.

Meh, forget what I said. Leave it. It is different. Maybe I am jealous becaus I did not think of it. HAHAHAHA!!!

Can't wait for more updates. thumb.gifthumb.gif

lol yeah no huge reason for the gpu placement, I just liked it better that way, gives the memory a little bit clearer airflow path, and theres the fan on the mobo (whatever good that little chump does) that the top slot gpu covers up if its in the first slot. Ill have everything finished up today but ill be out almost all weekend so I might not leak test till sunday

that seasonic psu is a ***** to sleeve.. the pins for whatever reason, bad quality or maybe i'm unlucky, just REFUSE to pop out of the cables.. I wanted to single sleeve it all up in green/brown but i completely thrashed my tester cable so not sure if its worth the hassle.. cables are pulling out of the pin heads leaving the pins stuck in plastic all over the place.. frustrating

EDIT: New technique. Giant hole in my finger, but got through a PCIE cable successfully. Who needs fingers? axesmiley.png
