I don't know why but I always seem to run into these epic build logs when they are about 100 pages deep and I have to say I never bother to go though them... until now. This is amazing man, truly a work of art and I think you should send some pictures to OU's computer science department. I personally think orange and blue represents a better color combination (I am an old boy of Florida, GO GATORS!) but all fanboism aside this is simply astounding. Looking to be the best build I have ever seen, keep up the good work and keep the pictures coming!

Actually closer to $2,000. But don't be jealous.

I'd call it a semi-gloss on all the smooth parts...but its looks more matte on the textured parts. It's a nice contrast. The color is not quite as warm as the CaseLabs white...but it still looks good with it.

Bitspower just makes the best looking fittings. IMHO. As soon as I got them...they made me think of Axis' build. Axis!....You need these fittings!

One day I hope to have enough funds to do a build half as good as this. biggrin.gif

So, after saying how amazingly impressed I am at the attention to detail, I was wondering what exactly you had planned for this rediculous heat capacity you have here?

I mean running that many rads, even with low speed fans, you could easily cool 3 of your computer, so are you planning to utilize this capacity in any way (e.g. peltier elements)?

You could easily fit a small Phase Change in that case, but that wouldn't be very pretty, however a few peltier elements could pull your temps down with no extra noise or negative effects on appearance, and wouldn't make any difference to the water temps in the res after passing through your insane about of rads.

1. slide split sleeve into position


2. shrink split sleeve over main wire and melt-lock to metal tip on other side


3. repeat for all splits

4. add main wire sleeve, pushing metal tips with locked sleeve of splits out through the weave where needed (metal tip should pass through easily and melted/locked sleeving should be pulled along with it, forcing the opening large enough, like a wedge); you'll probably want to mark where you want to push out the splits with tape or something before-hand, so you know where it is when you have the main sleeve all bunched up.


[Edit]
When puting the main sleeve on at the end, it would be easiest to slide it on from bottom then push it past where it should be until all the metal pins for the splits are where they should be: then pop all of the pins through and slowly work them through the side at the same time, which will push the main sleeve back down to where it belongs.
