EQU1L13R1UMS Build Log - Page 4

post #31 of 44
Thread Starter 
More Updates:

Temporarily placed the window on the case to get an overall feel of how this will look

450
450

Next on the list was to drill the holes to mount the pump in the HDD rack and fit it. I did this but after a little more debating I will be moving this into the lower chamber for better loop management thumb.gif
Another change is that one of the 480 radiators will be mounted up top now as again this allows for better loop management rolleyes.gif

450
450

Random shot

450

Both radiators and fans fitted top and bottom

450

Picture with the top and bottom panel on for an overall idea, I love the smoked window thumb.gif

450

Picture through the window. Thinking at some point of using white leds for a little but not too much lighting inside.

Just finished placing 2 orders for the following

Ball valve- so I can drain the build easily smile.gif
Corrosion Blocker- Due to having mixed metals
Mayhems Biocide
Fillport Nickel
Ek Compression fittings Nickel
EK Compression 90 degrees Nickle
EK Compression 45 degrees Nickle
PrimoChill White tubing 1/2" ID
3mm Dual white led- For the Raystorm block smile.gif
Bitspower Y Block- For the drain valve
Various Bitfenix White extension cables. (Have had to bin the idea of self braiding due to a baby on the way... now have other priorities that need doing)

That's all for now until Tuesday (parts should arrive).
Please tell me what you think so far.... all constructive criticism is welcome thumb.gif I am hoping this build will come out clean looking.

Thanks for stopping by
Dave

Due to yet another mess up on my order (not by me) I've had it with them and cancelled my order for a refund frown.gif It's not one or two issues it has been several and no contact from their end to let me know any issues made it worse.
So onto another place and a fresh order.... all goes well with this one I shall be on track either Friday night or Sunday as I am busy Saturday smile.gif

*fingers crossed Thursday will be a better day*

Very nice! Those extensions will look awesome! I've got a 650D which I'm making cables for from scratch because you can see the cables coming out of the PSU. In a case that size I suppose you wouldn't be able to reach with standard cables :3

I wanted to make my own custom length cables and braid myself also, but due to changes in the family prioritys have turned to other things biggrin.gif
The only one from what I can work out that REALLY needed an extension is the 24pin, I think the others are very close though.

Will you be posting pics of your cables extensions etc when you do them? Would like to see how they turn out smile.gif

Can't wait to see it all organised smile.gif

How are you finding the noise of those NZXT fans? I've been doing a little research into what the better static pressure fans are, besides the tried and true obvious of course thumb.gif
