Can someone have a look at this for me? I'm like wt....

Stripped all the insulation from my suction line and prepping the unit for a bit of spray paint to tidy it up and did not expect what I found!

- Captube soft soldered to the suction line and accumulator, Bonus!
- Flex line been extended, bad

The original grey wire that was the temp sensor for the stock Mach 2 controller was still on the flex line just cut off at the EVAP end meaning that the Unseen controller was added after all the mods were done on the unit at not at the same time.

Anyway the flex line is what's worrying me as out of all the build logs I've seen and read around the internet I've never seen one thats been extended, is it safe?

The top end also looks more silver or more soft solder in appearance then the bottom half which is obviously braze?

What do you lot think?

I agree it looks bad but I see no issue with it working. I wouldnt have done it that way but so long as you have no leaks your golden.

Yea I agree it might not be the prettiest thing in the world but if the person who did it was on a budget or couldn't wait for a new flex line then you can kinda understand why it's like that.

The unit is bang on, holds the evap at -33c on a 5.3Ghz 2500k @ 1.5v during Intel burn test so the unit has some guts biggrin.gif

This is as it stands now though, doing a major build with it and the Lian Li case I got with it...

Painted black

Cleaned the plastic bits

Managed to get a couple of brand new Chillcontrol PCB units from Asetek for FREE!! Also managed to find a Vapochill mount kit and heater elements which I've since cut to work on my unit so it has more of a factory look to it.

It's not very often you see brand spanking new phase parts thumb.gif
