The Magicool Slim is pretty much the slimmest 140mm radiator and that is what I am using. Someone on another forum gave me an idea about throwing a little window up top. Thinking I am going to go this route. Should look really good. I still think the 3 x 140mm radiator will be sufficient.

I have no problem sacrificing a bit of overkill cooling for a bit of overkill sleeving/aesthetics. tongue.gif

I didnt realize that was at the top of the case!

But that awsome sleeving work you have done really does need to be shown off!

Can't wait to see this one finished.

Been working on cabling all weekend.

A few pics of how the cables were before. Lengths were way out of whack. hsughr.gif

But damn they looking good at the top. dancingcool.gif

I worked on length and straightening out the 24-pin for probably 6-8 hours. eek4.gif. Still not quite perfect, will get the lengths 100% there once I finish the GPU and 8-pin cables.

Crimped the cables for the first video card. I ran out of 18-gauge wire last night and the store was closed today. Ended up using 16-gauge since that is what I have around. I already test fit to make sure the shrinkess method of sleeving works and it did perfectly. The stacked PCIe power connectors don't even look half bad IMO.

This is the finish on a Silverstone Strider 750W Gold. Looks pretty cool. Will take another pic when i get my reverse lens mount in the mail.

Just a random pic of a screw. e5dunno.gif

And some fittings. hsughno.gif

Photobucket is being a POS currently. Some pics might not load properly. eek5v2.gif


EDIT: Changed the tubing up a bit. Gave her come curves. biggrin.gif

Are you going to decouple those DDC pumps at all to help with noise?

I know they aren't really loud to begin with, especially when running two of them you can pretty much run them as slow as possible and still get good performance...

I have been doing alot of research into pumps lately and even though the d5 gets alot of praise, I sill lean toward the d5 a little bit due to the fact that it can handle the future upgrades better than the d5 as far as flow restrictions.

Only question that I need to fin answering for is the reliability, many say the d5 is better but I am of the mentality that I pump is a pump....and its more about load and stress on the motor than it is about anything else....atleast in my experience, but that is also based alot on the big CAT pumps making 400-700hp and 500hp electric pumps that I deal with that drive deep wells and booster pumps...so I could be COMPLETELY wrong
