[Work Log] Project Red Viper (Switch 810) - Completed - Page 4

post #31 of 45
Thread Starter 
The previous way i routed the fan controller wires really bugged me. Got an advise from pple and he told me I can actually route them through the same place the chassis cables are routed. Needed to make space for a 250mm tower reservior from FrozenQ (Still waiting for it to arrive) and also a dual pump top, just gonna play around with positioning until i actually get time to get the PSU cover made.

Option 1


Option 2


After playing around most prob i'll have to settle with option 2 cos really not enough space. Anybody has any suggestion how best to place them? I havent even added the UV cathod tubes..... sigh.. eek.gif

Spent awhile messing ard with the fittings and seriously BP fittings are no doubt good, but when screwing so many in... I feel my finger being eaten away lol
I must say Monsoon fittings really looks damn nice IMHO and with the provided tool, they dont eat my fingers when i screw them in. Only problem I found is that if I screw them in too tight, they are hard to remove properly to readjust the tubings etc.


Im gonna try to get the best looking / most neat looking way to route the tubings..
Gonna try to do Reservior -> Pump Top -> 240 rad -> flow indicator -> VGA -> CPU -> 360 rad -> mobo -> reservior
Dont really look all that neat, bros here any suggestions?


Anybody here ordered from them direct before? How long did they take to deliver it? Cant wait for the FrozenQ reservior to come and i can begin doing leak test. Seems to take forever...

Looks really good so far. The Fesser tubing looks about the same as the Primochill LRT. I really like the wiring and how that came out.

Thx man. Bought some MDPC-X sleeves and plan to sleeve up the PSU, waiting for them to arrive smile.gif

After like 2mths and im still waiting for my FrozenQ water reservior Zzzzz

Bought Demciflex filters for the rad. Didnt realize it doesnt fit too well but it should hold as all the fans are sucking air into the casing to create a positive pressure. Might think of what to do with the default top casing in the future, but for the time being this will do.


Decided to do front mounting the 240 rad to create space for the 250mm FrozenQ reservior and dual pump top. Wasnt good at making perfectly aligned holes and had to redrill lol well at least all these will be hidden.


NZXT Hue! Finally arrived frm Amazon. Its a shame we cant get this locally...


I managed to get 4x4GB 1600mhz red LED Avexir ram from a local distributor! Was told the red LED ones arent blinking for the time being as the blinking red ones are still under developement by Avexir. Not a deal breaker for me cos i think the red LEDs on the rams would be awesome in the build!



Can only power them up after FrozenQ sends me my reservior... has been waiting for it for like 2mth and now finally its on it's way. Should reach me within 1-2weeks hopefully

It appears that you're including the Thermo Fusion in your loop.

The Maximus V Formula manual recommends against including the GPU in a CPU/Thermo Fusion loop: page 1-47

That would seem like a pretty good clue as to how restrictive the TF is.

You may want to take a look at your temps with the TF out of the loop first, and then see how much they are impacted when you add it in.

The TF has a rather small ID tube that all the coolant has to flow thru, and as such, may be too much of a flow limiter for a GPU inclusive loop.

You have seriesed D5s which can move a lot of water, particularly in low restriction loops, but having the GPU, CPU, & TF in series may still present a challenge.

You may want to look at alternatives to a strictly series loop.

Hey Darlene I'm honored to have you helping me out in my build! Thx for letting me know cos I didn't know abt the problem with the TF. No wonder WarSamEagle excluded TF in his loop.
Will exclude it for the time being smile.gif

Lucky EK is coming up with WB for M5V, should be releasing for retail soon. Will get the block for the mobo when it's out.

Have you got a link to that loop?

Sorry dont have a link to his loop, but I rem seeing him posting it on the NZXT Switch Owners Group FB page.
His loop is Res > Pump > VGA > 240 rad (top) > CPU > Res

Just got my MDPC-X sleevings in my mail and UPS finally delivered my FrozenQ res, will do up the system when I can get some time off from work biggrin.gif
