I think the 250mm res's look awesome, you have a great eye for detail nothing has been over looked, im really liking the idea of the copper accents such as the screws and things.

Wish i could see this in person, also your pics look like i could reach out an touch it.

Subbed for sure

All of these reservoirs are in stock by the way. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



They have THESE in Australia
but the shipping might be a bit much they weigh a lot, I have 2 of the nickel plated version

Product page says they are unavailable right now....but I'm really not looking for these reservoirs guys. I have the ones I'm going to use...and don't even really like those old Aquacomputer ones. Aquacomputer has a new line of reservoirs though that look more interesting.

Sometimes I wonder if people actually read the thread before posting; that whole copper res thing just came from seekeroffun saying that he had more mass of copper than you; it had nothing to do with reservoirs.

Love picking up new subs at this stage in the game, and I love that you found the past dialog interesting. It's been almost 3 months now since I started this...and I'm getting close to the finish line!

Bundy...it was a picture of the white fittings you posted that someone else put in this thread...that started my drive to get some. Appreciate the help in making the contact at Bitspower. FB page looking good!

Did my big dye batch tonight for the crimson colored sleeving. I've got a few pictures to share, but if you want to really learn how to do it...check out the other link in my signature.

You need three pots:





In the big pot in back...get some water boiling and add some vinegar. In one of the small pots, you'll mix the dye carrier with some water, as shown below:





Once you have the small pot boiling...add it to the big pot. It will turn the whole big pot of water an opaque milky white.





In your other little pot, you mix the actual dyes with some water (I'm using a combination of scarlet and lilac).






Once you have it boiling....dump the small dye bowl into the big pot.





I'm dyeing a whole big bunch of white MDPC-X sleeving tonight...in hopes this will last me for the duration of this build. This is the first time I've done a dye bath with LOTS of sleeving in it. Everything to date has been small test batches trying to perfect the process. Little bit scary! Don't want to ruin this much sleeve!

So that I can easily lift it out of the pot to check on it...I've got the sleeve sitting on a small collander insert, and I've tied a length of wire through the handle so I can pull it up at any time to check on it.





Now.....lower the thing down into the big dye bath....






And then keep it simmering for as long as you need. Here is what it looked like after an hour and a half.





Here is the finished sleeve...after about 3.5 hours.




It's almost a perfect match for my powder coated OU crimson case!



Here are a couple of shots with some MDPC-X red next to my custom dyed batch. It will show you clearly why I needed to dye this instead of just using red.





The whole dyeing sleeve thing is actually pretty easy to do...after I suffered through lots of trials and tribulations learning how to do it properly. I didn't end up doing any heatshrink....because I've decided to use the shrinkless method.

Will begin sleeving in earnest now...so expect more updates related to sleeving over the next week or so.

When I saw the crimson before it looked good. But now it looks amazing on top of the case and all of the colors coming together. A job well done indeed thumb.gif
