Thanks. Didn't get to finish the VR section. I will work on it over the weekend, providing that I can fix the CAD program on my laptop... If I can't then I can't touch it until monday. sad.

Today I'm playing around with reservoir and pump placement options. I'm also doing another dye batch for the SATA sleeve I got last week. The dye batch is about a 4 hour process. Don't know why I didn't think about dyeing any of the SATA sleeve the first time. I think I'll use the small sleeve on the normal SATA cables, as I showed in a previous post. But the SAS>SATA breakout cables are going to require the larger sleeve. I got some shorter SAS>SATA cables last week that are just 18 inches....instead of the 30 inch monsters I originally had. My initial plan is to gather all 4 SATA cables inside of one SATA sleeve at the SAS end...and keep them inside one connector for all the portion that will show on the MB side of the case. I'll then have some heatshrink that marks the spot were each cable will be separated into its own SATA sleeve.

I hope to be done with the SATA sleeving tonight, so I should have some more pics up then. Here are a couple pics of its current state:




I'm really loving what the XXL window shows off on the MB side of the case. Especially once I get the 24pin sleeved, and some tubing running from the reservoirs. The AMS copper fin radiator also shows off nicely with the XXL window.




Those that have been paying close attention will notice a different CPU cooler. I didn't like how much the last one pressed on the top 690. It was putting pressure on it. Even though this cooler is just temporary until it all goes under water...I wanted to eliminate that pressure. So here is a Zalman that gives me more clearance underneath it.

Do you have any mess shots of your work area(s)?

I'd take one now....but JennG made me clean up everything in the living room and dining room yesterday for a Scentsy party she was doing. wubsmiley.gif

It had gotten pretty bad. I had banished everyone from the living room for almost 2 months now. But....it is nice to be able to see the floor again....and to be able to take a step without worrying you might be crushing a $1,000 component. I would guess you are starting to accumulate some boxes and piles of parts at this point. Yes?

LOL my wife is just as unhappy about my commandeering the family room.

Your build is coming along great.

Quick update. I made it through another dye batch. Now I have a heap of crimson MDPC-X SATA sleeve.





I also did 5 more SATA cables, and now have all of the non-breakout SATA cables done.





Slowly but surely all of the non-sleeved cables are disappearing.





Working on the SAS>SATA breakout cables right now.

I was about to comment on you 24 pin's sleeving but since you mentionned it, I will simply say that I'm awaiting the gorgeousness of uniform sleeving.thumb.gif
Edit: Can you make custom lengths of breakout cable?
