[Work Log] Project Red Viper (Switch 810) - Completed - Page 3

thx bro! Welcome to the Switch 810 club. Would also love to see your build if its available biggrin.gif

Thread Starter 
Time for another minor update! Been busy with work & RL recently and parts which i ordered didnt arrive so not much i can do. I was looking through alot of Switch 810 buildlogs and i just realized if i dont have a PSU cover, i wont have a place for me to mount my pump.

Finally im able to secure the fans and rads down after I went down to the heavy industrial area and bought the M4 screws at like 12cents (30mm) and 13cents (35mm) each. Much cheaper than typical hardware shops that i've seen.


I went back to the drawing block and took some empty tissue boxes and cut them up and stick them together to test if it fits lol i figured since I dont really know how best to take an accurate measurement of the casing... making a life-size mock up then measureing it would be ideal.

Mock up drawing prototype 1


Mock up prototype 1


Didnt have enough tissue boxes to made a trial full cover thus the big hole at the bottom radiator. Having a test mock up is good i guess cos i realised it needs some adjustments to make it actually fit...

Problems
I'd prefer to just punch 2 holes for the tubings to run through so its a cleaner look but i really dont knnow how to measure the distances so the hole will appear directly above the fittings.. can anybody advise please?

Or anybody who has the blueprint dimensions of the PSU cover for Switch 810 and are willing to share it maybe I can take reference from it?

I tried just cutting 1 big rectangle hole to see how it looks since i dont know where to punch the holes for the tubings... but its butt ugly IMO...




Besides getting the dimensions right, need to decide on the material and also where to buy and also cut it. Planning on doing lazer cut to do some design for the vents for the rad fans.

- Performance PCs parts enroute abt 6-10 working days
- FrozenQ reservior enroute abt 5 working days
- EK is releasing WB for Maximus V Formula in the coming weeks

Would love get this ram and not get a waterblock if this ever ships to where i stay.

Get an absolute measurement on where the outside of your cover is going to be. Then measure from that spot to the middle of the first radiator fitting/hole, then take another measurement from there to the middle of the other radiator fitting/hole and you will have your numbers for where to place holes for tubing or fittings. It's just basic layout work.
I would advise you to make the cover in a way that you can take sections apart if you think you're going to need to access either the psu or the rad. For example, my cover top is basically three sections.
But whatever works for you.
Luck.

btw there are no "blueprints" for any kind of psu/rad cover. Everyone just figures out what works for them and fabs it up.

Im not sure if it uses the ref 680 board, but the 1 that EK sent me obviously doesnt fit as it is really way bigger and the holes for the screws doesnt fit / align.
Looking through the images of the backplates they have on their site also shows the holes are in different location for the 680 DCU II and the 670 DCU II.

They are sending me the 1 for the 670 DCU II and im happy that it's in the progress of being shipped over at the moment thumb.gif


Just received the new backplate frm EK and now we can confirm that Asus GTX670 DCU II does not use the ref 680 board. See the difference in size.

Thx for the advice man. I will go try out and see if im able to get it.
Indeed after making the cardboard version, i realised having it in 1 piece is gonna make things difficult to access.
Im in the process of trying to make it into a 3 piece cover as what you suggested so accessibility would be easier

Edit: I just looked through your buildlog. It just helped me out how to get the measurements for the tubing hole easier. Thanks bro thumb.gif

Nonetheless my so call pre-modified "blueprint" is here with the detailed measurements (the 1 with the butt ugly rectangular hole lol)

Package from PPCs came! So little time and so much to do tongue.gif


Installed the top rad after pulling through all the required cables. Was glad i chose not to pick those 60mm thick rads if not i would have ran into clearence issues. Lucky Blackice rads are only 54mm and they just managed to fit in push/pull with a 1mm clearance.


Wired up all the 14 fans to the fan controller and OMG i was worried i couldnt hide all the cables properly... Nightmare has started...


After like 2hours for a noob like me to place the cables properly behind the back panel, think im quite happy with how it turns out biggrin.gif


Front of the casing without VGA card installed


Front of the casing with the VGA card in


Also used a cutter to cut a hole to fit the rocker switch to turn on/off the UV lights


Gonna go sleep and will work on some sleevings tmr and also try to get the pump set up

Thx man. I tried routing it through the sides like how most pple did it, but didnt like the idea cos i thought it might block the 250mm FrozenQ reservior. Thus didnt really have a choice and needed to route them through the bottom.

yea man. Since the ROG board are already defaulted to red/black thus i decided to stay with it. Wanted the fittings to be black too but since EK blocks are all chrome, I went ahead with all chrome fitting to make them stand out smile.gif
