Yes Virginia....there really is.





Thank you thessdreview.com and Kingston for my free SSD. I'll probably throw this one in the upcoming gf build.

Everytime I come back here I get the itch to spend money I shouldn't.

Took a break from cabling/sleeving today, and got out the power tools. First I worked on putting together the 2nd of my PA2 brackets. You've already seen pictures of the one on the PSU side of the case, but I finished the one on the motherboard side tonight. As with the previous one...this one will get powdercoated white when I'm all done. But here it is in raw form...





The bracket on this side extends 2.5 inches from the middle of the case, so that the PA2's are directly underneath the fans. The bracket on the PSU side only extended 1.5 inches...since that side of the case is more narrow.

While I had the power tools out...I drilled some more holes in the case to mount the Helix reservoir. I mounted it on the center dividing panel inside the case. For the OU reservoir, I used the radiator mounting brackets available on the FrozenQ website. The only issue I had there was the screws. The AMS radiators take M3 screws. I had some extra M3's that were too short...and some extra M3's that were too long. Hmmm. So....used my dremal on 4 of my 30mm screws....and they quickly became 13mm screws....which was just about perfect. Don't want to puncture those radiator coils!





I was worried initially that the 250mm reservoir size might be too small in a case this big. Was wondering whether or not I should switch to the 400mm sizes. But having two of them beside each other, and not centered vertically....actually fills the space nicely. And when the door is on....the window frames them very nicely. Think I'll stick with the 250mm size.

The more I do...the more I realize I still have to do. But I'm still having fun. That's it for tonight....but I'm going to go put on some Lionel and see if I can get my 24pin in the mood. wink.gif

Laughing, laughing! I continue to put off sleeving my dual wire y-splicing in all of my harnesses, it's probably the last thing I will do.

This might sound strange, but the 24 & 8 pin are the easiest things I've done. I've been making everything up from scratch, and the SATA power , or anything with punch down connectors, have been the biggest pita.
I still need to make my two 8 pin to dual 8 (or 6 pin in my case) psu to gpu cables but that shouldn't be hard. Had to order some more blue wire, though, as somehow I've managed to go through 100 ft. Need to redo my SATA power as well.

Like you I'm still having fun! I don't get in a rush about these things, and though mine is basically functional, what will I do when it's finished? lol this is my second full water cooled build this year and the bank is dry. wink.gif Must.....resist......buying......more......Bitspower.......fittings.........!

Marvin Gaye "let's get it on" should do it.
