Just a minor update for a nice surprise I got from Performance PCs.
During my last order, PPCS accidently sent wrong item and just to tease them I mentioned under comments to remind them to send me the item they missed out and also "I wont mind any surprise freebies too if PPCs would like to include them thumb.gif

And they really put in some surprise freebies LOL.
Not that its worth something but it definitely put a smile on their customer to show they care abt customer service. :thumb2:



Finally I found wheels that fits nicely on the Switch 810 bottom without any mod. Guess where I found it? LOL I stole my 1yr old son's Little Tikes roller toy wheel muahahaha



My little one was happily helping me do up the rig lol



Switch 810 with wheels LoL
This is just a sample how the loop will be. Gonna need to slowly sleeve up the cables bit by bit and hide them. Super messy state now, but at least the looping can be considered done

Finally done with all the PSU cable sleevings and hooked up the loop and redid the wirings front and back. Managed to make it look neater than previously did.

Next is leak testing. Initially wanted to do a 24hrs test using a external power supply, but after finding a few leaks within 3hrs and rectifying them, I felt im quite comfortable powering it on. Im glad i actually used a external power

Problem i faced:

1. Leak from 1 of the ports of the FrozenQ reservior - The plug fitting wasnt tighten properly

2. CF Fitting on the 240 rad outlet leak - Accidently forgot to put in rubber O-Ring on that fitting. Leak stopped after I put in the O-Ring.

3. Outlet point of Bitspower flow meter leaking - Again due to a poorly installed O-Ring. Resit it in correctly and leak plugged.

4. CCFL UV cathod tubes from 1 of the inverters not working - Found it was due to me mixing up the +ve and -ve polarity when i was doing the cable sleeving on the inverter.

After like 3 hrs and found no other leaks, more of less im comfortable with powering it up.
Pic of the system running with towles just in case...

Scrapped the midplate idea cos the bottom was too cramped up with stuffs, I guess no point hiding totally all the hardwork I put into sleeving the cables with MDPC sleevings.

Final Looping
Res -> dual pump top -> 240 rad -> southbridge -> VGA -> flow meter -> 360 rad -> MOSFET -> CPU -> Res

Tried running the free 3DMark 11 on stock to test the temps.
Turned out with 8825 score.

Im abit concern, Not sure any bros here can advise.
CPU temps - Used "Real Temp" program for mointoring. Isit normal as it peaks at 60degC on stock even before OCing?

VGA temps - Using Asus GPU tweak for mointoring. Im finding it strange to have it peaked out at 48degC. Either the WC is working bloody well or Im no sitting the waterblock correctly or something? How can I know? I thought when cards is on load even with WC it should maybe hit say 50ish?

Need to get this sorted out before I actually go and OC it. Dont want to end up with damaged components...
