This is an interesting idea, I have some somewhere, and the hose clamps to go with them, might see if its viable in the next few days smile.gif

I have 3 x Asus 120hz VG278H, As soon as IPS panels are available in 120hz next year I'll definitely be making the switch.

I'm not a huge fan of the 3D gaming the monitors provide unless the game is specifically built for 3D (like batman arkham city), I use a few 60hz monitors at work from time to time and I don't think I could go back to 60hz again, even for a high res dell IPS panel.

Thanks Man,

So the front panel is turning into its own sort of nightmare, I've had to redo it several times for multiple reasons

1) Grind down the 45mm screws to 42-43mm (24 of them) as they were just that bit too long, this was after having to swap from 40mm to 45.
2) Mounting the screws, grill, fan gasket, fan, shroud 3-4 times to get it right, including messing up the order somehow, the grain of the fan grills pointing different ways, multiple screw swaps, and getting the 7mm shroud's to seal correctly.
3) Either the mountain mods panel is out by 1/2mm or the alpha cool rads are out by 1/2mm or they just don't want to play nice with each other, as the screws just didn't want to line up. I had to have my GF hold them in place why I moved them in a circular motion until they were coaxed into place.

I think once this build is done I'm going into PC building retirement and only swapping GPU's or the odd CPU.

I'm not a huge fan of how the snap clips turned out, I'll probably swap back to the circular rubber washers you can see on the larger rad panel earlier in this thread, I just need to order more of them. So for now treat them as placeholders guarding the case from scratches smile.gif

I still have the 2nd row of fans to do shortly, but that shouldn't take to long, once that's done I'll get started on the button and lighting wiring, then its time to get out the dremel,drill, grommets and the U molding and a lot of patience smile.gif

PICS:













For this next shot, you can see that each end of the rads has an extra port. Alphacool list pressure valves as one potential use for these ports.



I've got a few of these Koolance pressure valves (4 of them - somewhere, not digging them out right now for an IRL photo)



I had planned to put 2 into the top of the res to release pressure when the PC is off. Do you think it would be a bad idea putting one of these into one of these ports? Would it assist with bleeding the system and keeping air from trapping inside the rads? Or would it cause a pressure drop in the radiators and have a negative effect? I really don't know enough about pressure and radiators, guess I have reading to do.

Oh yeah almost forgot, I removed the ribbon cable/smd soldering from the pci express riser (all that learning about solder paid off), hoping to make a rounded cable, will see how it turns out and then post more if it ends up working.



If there's anything else you guys want a closer look at please let me know, happy to take more shots. More pics in a bit once the other 6 fans are connected.

Never seen someone un-solder/sleeve/re-solder a pci-e riser...
Should be interesting to see how that looks thumb.gif

I'm really loving this build, I've seen so much done/try to be done that I've never seen nor even thought of doing..
Keep up the great work!

Thanks mate, I just wish more of my idea's actually worked, most of them fail lol biggrin.gif

Rest of the fans done, need to strip and solder them, but I'm going to take a few hours break and watch a movie (and give my back a rest) before I continue.





Oh yeah and I've ordered some black circular stickers to replace the gelid stickers (not a fan of the logo)

Where did you get them from? Wouldn't be a bad idea to look into buying some.

Oh and are you going with UV lighting? or just some blue lights?

Theres a few places that do them,

http://www.zazzle.com.au/custom/stickers
http://www.vistaprint.com.au/vp/welcome.aspx?xnav=welcomeback&rd=1




In terms of size the stickers have a circumference of 12.5cm, diameter of 4cm, radius of 2cm.

You can do them on your home printer as well with a transparent sheet and some patience.

In terms of lighting I'm going to be running

- 4 UV cold cathodes (2 mounted to the case side , 2 to the case top)
- 12 x UV 5mm and 3mm Leds (Reservoir, Pump tops)
- blue strip LED's (the NZXT sleeved type) around the edge of the case.

I'm in the process of doing the wiring for the front switches using 22mm bulgin latching switches to turn the lighting on/off, before I sleeve it I will make sure I take some pics.

But basically, just passing a 12v wire via the switch to 2 molex connectors to these two (ignore the paper towel, just testing a pressure release valve theory on a radiator)

So its time to start wiring up the bulgin switch to control the LED's and cold cathodes,

Things you'll need:

Connectors (Cathode 2 pin connector and pins). Only need one of these in this instance, but always have spares just in case,



22mm Latching blue light bulgin switch, molex connectors, and some 2.8mm spade crimp connectors. (you could solder wires directly to the switch, but I don't think I can be bothered.)



And finally an assortment of 18AWG cabling (could use 20awg if you wanted, 16awg is to fat)




I found these wiring diagrams that will be used to work out pins.

This is for latching



This is for momentary (power switch, reset button)



one good thing about wiring cathodes and Led's using the LED board is that theres no need to run 5volt (Red) wiring

I wanted to make sure so I tested it:
