It's been off to a really slow start, but things should start to pick up now.
I've made the front panel, now it just needs some fine sanding and paint Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Picture with side panel. The acrylic was a bit tricky. The side panel is made of quite thick metal, I milled the acrylic so it's flush with the panel. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

so i just ordered the apogee drive, an mcres 2 reservoir, fittings and tim.
they are coming from the us so may take a week or 2.
i can order an ex120 and ex240 from here in nz, and a block for my 690 so hopefully can get this loop underway when the us stuff ships.

hopefully christmas wont delay my order too much...

Edit: just remembered i have a spare rs240 from my last loop. how much better is the ex likely to be? worth buying when i already have this spare?

just because people arent buying it, doesnt mean its not a good board. by that logic, no one would be buying new products because no one has it yet!!! look at the EVGA Stinger. tons of people are buying it and its got the same problems that EVGA is known for.
bottom line, do some research and make an educated decision. that way you cant get mad at anyone but yourself if you arent satisfied thumb.gif

that's not what i meant at all. tech site reviews do offer a lot of insight, but when gauging reliability, longevity, diversity, etc i tend to look at user reviews much closer, as these are the type of things that are determined over time, with actual experience with the product. at the same time, user reviews aren't everything, and i always take them with a grain of salt


i'm just not the type of person to go out and gamble on a purchase. i am more than willing to wait a while for user reviews

tbh its what im planning to do with mine. i decided i can just buy an external ODD and use it in any computer we own, rather than restricting usage range and cooling space, plus the rad enlargement+external's difference is only $20 or so, no biggie.

Just in case anyone was wondering how my Prodigy turned out (I'll update my buildlog some time rolleyes.gif) and how it is now, here are a few pictures:

My HDD + SSD are well hidden under my fan controller. wink.gif



The tubing was horrible to route...







The tubing has since turned milky, but it's kinda cool:



Glad I was able to make use of all 8 of my GT-2150s and they work well enough with my EX rads at whisper-quiet speeds.

Looks sweet. I wasn't able to fit 2 rads in my little rig frown.gif

So I did some work on Tiny Orange Bits today. Got froggy and drove 2 hours to microcenter and spent way too much money is more like it.

Picked up an ASRock Z77E-ITX, which amazingly enough can overclock and undervolt my 3570k just like a desktop board! Gigabyte should take notes with their Z77N-WIFI which I will be returning to Amazon. Also got 16GB Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8-8-8-24 1.5v stuff, looks good and was cheap for a Cas 8 16GB kit at $84. Last but not least, I grabbed a Samsung 840 250GB SSD to pair with my Samsung 830 128GB OS drive. GOing to get rid of the Corsair Force3 60GB I was using for OS before.

Now I just need to get my water cooling list together and order it so I can finish this build up, that and some sleeved cable extensions for my cheesy Enermax PSU.

Sorry for the crappy pics, I didn't realize my phone was set on one of the lower quality image types. Had to improvise as my H100 backplate would not fit on this board due to the caps.
