[Build Log] Project Apollyon - SG05 cpu+gpu loop - Page 4

post #31 of 72
Thread Starter 
I desperately need to get a soldering kit, could have come in handy so many times now. I redid it my way so it looks a bit better. I'd do it Lutro0's way but don't have anyway to solder. thanks for the link tho. I've been busy with school work but I'm almost done the 24-pin so i'll post photos as soon as I'm done. I should have enough for the 8-pin and I'll order more sleeving for the 2 6-pin and molex.

I need to find a way to mount the pump, I don't really see anyway of doing it at the moment and I don't think adhesive tape will work. Any ideas???

I'm finding it difficult to visualise how much space you have under the res there. Also I'm curious if the front panel PCBs still fit with the res and pump? Can you post any updated pics?

With the pump and res in place I don't have any clearance between the res and top of case, and no clearance between the pump and side panel, in fact I may have a bit of trouble putting the casing on because the tubing sticks out a few mm beyond the case. The trouble is that the tight bends in the tubing won't allow the pump or res to sit in their places, and the only way for them to stay in their place (that I see) would be to screw them into something, but that is not an option. I was thinking of using adhesive tape to attach the res and pump to the side of the radiator, but I don't think it will do the job. In a bit of a pickle here.

With the PCB, I actually damaged a cable and now one of the usb ports won't work at all. I don't know why I forced the res so far into it, totally unnecessary because it all fits if I move the res and pump a bit away from it. Anyway, the first photo shows how I'd like the res and pump to sit (and that it actually fits), the second shows how it is at the moment.





EDIT: Let me know if I should take some more photos at different angles.

I would start by making an L bracket which would bolt/screw into the left hole of the unused 3.5" cage in the top brace. You can use a 1" wide strip of modders mesh, or something prettier from your hardware store. Drill 6/32 holes, bolt to top brace and the bottom of the case. Don't bolt to the lower brace because that will surely stop you from closing the case. Measure and drill 2 holes and use the long screws from the MCRES2 to bolt the res to the bracket. Don't bother with the U brackets which come with the res.

Now what to do about the pump? Well, I would have picked a different model. But that's not helpful. You are kinda stuck with those barbs. The 180 degree tube between pump and res is unfortunate. Also the pump should be fed from the lower or bottom port of the res. So you'll probably have to keep that position and orientation. Then I would repurpose the L bracket which comes with the MCRES2, bolt it to the case floor and to the top mounting of the pump, then repurpose a U bracket from the res for mounting the bottom.

If you have an old erector set or find a new one with long enough pieces, you could screw in two bars on the side of the case with those existing holes. Then you could either adhere the res and pump or bend another erector set piece to act as a mounting bracket for them both.

similar to Electrocutor's idea: double-stick tape the pump to the res so that they become essentially one piece. Then like WiSK said, make/buy an L-bracket that will attach the top rail of the case to the two mounting points on the res. like so:

Thanks I'll have a look around and see what I can use for a bracket. What pump would you have gone with? Does it have speed control?

I have a meccano set somewhere, I'll definitely try and use that rather than making or buying a bracket (if it fits that is). I remember the pieces were nice and slim too so everything should still fit.

Nice diagram, I've got a feeling that will be the best solution. I'll have to see if I can find the meccano set and if the pieces will fit.


Thanks for all the suggestions/info +rep

When I put the pump in place, what would be best to use in terms of insulating vibrations? Does it make much of a difference what I use? My DCP 4.0 pump came packaged in some protective foam type stuff, could I just use that? I don't have much room to play with obviously, but I don't want the pump to just sit on the case

I'm considering a build in the FT03-mini (similar internal cage as the SG05) using the pump+waterblock combo Swiftech Apogee Drive II. It has PWM speed control.

But you've already got a waterblock and pump, so like I said: it's not helpful advice when you ask "how to mount it?" if I say "buy a different one" wink.gif
