Had a leak where my temp probe seated under the res. There was a bad O Ring. Replaced and used Teflon tape on threads.

I had a hell of a time filling this thing. Had to use an extender hose hooked up to my fill port to try to overcome the pressure from the return loop off the 120 rad.

I think I'm going to add a shut off valve in between the 120 rad and the video card to make it easier to fill. Might as well since I had to drain the system after I had a leak. At least I found one good thing about all this.....man this thing is so easy to drain biggrin.gif.

I probably will not have many new posts for about a week or so, I have to do some business travel shortly frown.gif

Draining the system. One more run on distilled for a while to make sure system is spotless. I'll be switching over to Mayhems x1 transparent with Mayhems H2O DDI. The EK coolant has a yellow tinge to it that was bothering me.

I did seem to solve my filling problem I had before. I swapped the tubbing orientation on the gpu block. That fixed my back pressure problem. Filling is pretty easy now. Just pop the cap on the res to allow air to flow in, open the fill valve, fill with syringe till fluid appears in return tube, close fill valve, power pumps up till fluid drops below outlet, switch pumps off, reopen fill valve, repeat till full, close valve and cover fill and res port. It's pretty easy. I just have to not forget to close my fill valve when cycling the pumps or the coolant will return up the fill port.







Look at all the gunk my filter picked up from the first flush.

That was the idea. Fit as much stuff as I could without taking away from some of the cases stock features. Its actually so tight in there; in order for me to plug in cables to the PSU, I have to remove it and lay it on its side then reinsert the PSU. There isn't nearly enough rooms to get my hands under it.

I was the same way with my old GPU card and the the aftermarket fan cooler for it, if it was 1mm longer I would have had to remove the middle fan to fit it in (Arctic cooling Xtreme III) SO that gives you an idea just how long that thing is.
I've put some serious thought into doing a water cooled theme for this case, but it's just way too expensive right now, my H60 is doing more than just fine for my 4170

Well, 24 Hours with no leaks on distilled. So its all set for Mayhem's X1. Unfortunately for me; I wont be able to work on it for at least 8 days; got a plane to catch.
When I get back I'll be getting all the wiring done; got the switches and the molex for the hotswap sata backplane to do. Then just finish up with sleeving. Cant wait to get this thing posted up and start playing around biggrin.gif.

Back from my business trip. Wired up my lighting switches and sleeved them. Also got my Mayhems x1 and some of their di d water.
Going to refill the loop next and continue working on my wiring.

Put the Mayhems x1 in. 120 ml of x1 and 90% of di d 1 ltr water bottle. Love how easy this system is to drain, fill and remove air bubbles.
