Ive always ordered from newegg but the black one is out of stock most times, not to mention the price is jacked up (89.99 with 15.00 shipping). Should i order it from ncix?

So my buddies and I are building three black prodigys right now and I'm cleaning out my 700d water cooling setup to transfer it and noticed some issues and wanted advice.

Previously there was blue fluid in the loop which I cleaned out several times then had just distilled water the past year in my system and after cleaning it out its filled with 1. Blue stains on all my white tubing and blue/white flakes everywhere sticking to sides of everything it touches totally unnoticeable while watching the system run the past year. Only since cleaning it did I notice it. Lastly the CPU block appears to have a good amount stuck to the flow plate hoping to clean it easily I think I have extra plates.

So three builds are
1. 180mm front w ex240 top
2. 180mm front w rx240 top
3. 180mm front w ex120 top unsure about ex model

All systems will have 3770k and the 120 one will have a 6970 water block 1+2 are CPU only for now with a 670ftw and 680 installed to be wc'ed down the road.

Just sharing and looking for advice on anything will post pics Tom.

Some issues we have are 1. Right size fan on 180mm is hard and most fans are 25mm+ so the default screws don't fit. We need to get longer screws something we didn't plan. Also microcenter doesnt sell 180mm fans and no other fan size fits on a 180mm not a 170/200/230 etc.. Secondly seems two of us with 240 s might not be able to fit fan controllers although that is still up in the air. Lastly off the top of my head my power supply is going to stick out like 1-3/4 inch lol. Ill share more stories later working 4-12 then back to modding building n fixing.

Ps we all got the asus 77 -I boards I wanted the black asrock one but stayed same with my 2 buds any questions feel free to ask.

As for the 700 w/c loop...Dyes stain the tubing...no way to clean that. Sounds like you may have a plasticizer problem too.

On the Prodigy builds...
1. XSPC uses UNC 6/32 screws...Ace hardware just became your best friend smile.gif
2. You can modify the drive bay bracket so you can fit a fan controller and a 240 rad in the top, or do like I did and reverse the front panel so the drive bay is at the bottom of the case.
3. Lian Li makes a PSU bracket that extends the PSU out of the back of the case, would work for this circumstance, or you can cut the front panel of the mobo tray easily enough.

Good luck on your builds! thumb.gif

Can someone PLEASE! measure the vent holes on the side panel of this case for me? I am wanting to add a filter to the side and need to know if the one im looking at will cover the vent holes completely.

This is the filter im lookin at:
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=74445&vpn=FF142B&manufacture=Silverstone%20Technology

It is 320mm long (12.6inches) and 155mm tall (6.1inches)

I am planning on sticking it on the inside because i know i have to remove the side panels to pop the front panel off anyways.

Sata cable? Anodized Thumb Screws? Fan splitter cable? Case badge? Any sound proofing?
