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...
With lights on and paper towels removed after 24hrs
With lights off
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.
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...
