I wanna see more from nate too.

My pleasure.




I am debating on trying a bevel on the inside. Probably pointless since you won't see the inside. More was done, but not pictured here. One significant improvement to add some surface area above the lower chipsets.

Very cool watching the block start to take shape.

One of the small items in my FPCU package today was the mounting bracket for the Aquaero LT. For anyone else considering the LT....it does not come with a mounting bracket at all. I wanted to mount this one directly underneath the XT so that I could do a fittings only connection between the two. This placement also leaves the waterblock openings very close to either the top of the AMS rad, or to where one of the reservoirs will be. It should help me keep the loop looking manageable.

Here is a shot of both of them from inside the case.





I'll do a custom molex cord for it and sleeve both it and the USB connections, naturally. You'll also notice that the Blu-Ray player and card reader are missing from any of these spots. I've opted to move both of those items down into the fley bay spots in the pedestal. That leaves this section with only short mounts above the radiator...and very clean looking. Here is what it looks like from the front of the case.





To use the bay cover in front of the AQ5 LT, along with the short mount adapter....I had to grind down the raised section of the threads on the back of the bay cover just a little bit. The thumb screws only barely reached without a little grinding action. Now they are sturdy. You can also see in the picture above my copper thumbscrews vs the black ones. I'm waiting until I'm just about done to do a final copper plating order...and I'll finish off the screws then.

In this screen shot below you can see the two AQ5's both showing up in the Aquasuite. I haven't hooked up any of my sensors yet...but since it will read the sensors from Aida64...I got a chance to play around a little bit with setting up controllers and information screens, etc. It's very cool stuff. The only downside is that the two AQ5's do not share sensors. So if I wanted to use a certain sensor value (water temp) to control fans or pumps that were hooked up to both AQ5's...I'd have to have two sensors.

Or....I wonder if I split the temperature sensor wire into a "y" right before both AQ5's.....hmmmm. Might have to try that.



Really want to get my PA2 mounts finished and then get them all wired up and sleeved. Must play with Aquasuite more.
