[Build Log] Project "Overkill" - Quad GeForce Titan's - Page 32

post #311 of 782
just a update from my previous question, it turn's out that my NOOB ness knows no bounds and didn't have a clue, the top I have is indeed a Dual D5 bitspower top w/ the dress kit, although it looked exactly like yours, there is one small difference which was the question that boggled me, the inlet on yours turn and goes up into the res, mine doesn't have this, it goes straight into the pump and out to the other pump...

I sent a email to BP about the vertical stand and it turns out mine doesn't come with one and the one you are using wont even fit... I just got totally schooled !!! lol biggrin.gif


Back on topic.... ooooh Gelid Wings, those are one of my favorite fans, the thing I like about them most is apart from their quality, the magnetic shaft, bearing and all, is you can pop em out to clean without removing the actual fan, pretty cool... & bling factor +1

You might not even need the filters or mesh, since the blades pop out, vacuuming and cleaning becomes pretty easy... It might even look more sick then it already is..

Cheers cheers.gif

Agreed! The savings are already underway for my next build and I have yet to finish my current one!

Glad you figured it out mate, I think I'll stick to the mesh filters for aesthetics, I have some demci magnetic filters to go over the radiator intake which will get the most dust, and I can remove the fans from the top panel and the gpu radiator quite easily.

haha I'm doing the same thing, about 3 months of overtime went into this build, and I've already started saving for the next.

Anyways, more of less finished the top panel, I have to add 2 cathodes to the other side and run a small amount of cabling but that wont take long.

Just a note on this shroud, its not very sleeving friendly (or cabling for that matter), I ended up having to drill a hole to run the cabling and only have a small amount of sleeving over the wires directly plugged into each fan for consistencies sake. Other than that I think you'll agree the end result was worth the hassle.

Hole / wiring I had to run through it through to get inside the shroud.


End Result.

Agreed! The end result looks slick man!

So that'll house three fans and the rad will go on the inside of the panel?

Originally the 2nd rad was going to go there, but when I swapped from an E-ATX to an XL-ATX motherboard tray I had to relocate the second rad to the front.

So now they are just the exhaust above the motherboard.

In other news, my Aquaero stopped working recently and was replaced under warranty. When it arrived yesterday I remembered that I hadn't taken any pics earlier in the thread,

So here's some pics:









Today I did the 120mm fan and the SLI link.




Whats left to do:

1) Screw the drive bays in.
2) Screw the large rad panel in and run 3 x 3pin fan cables to the front (won't take long).
3) Tubing.
4) Fill.

Hi man, no doubt about you know your way around in the build - as one said befor it must be the best build in the AUS. I read you posts and looking forward to see you every day making one more step. It's gonna look awsome when done but till then keep the hard work looking great.

Thanks mate, appreciate it smile.gif

So I finally got the pumps straight and screwed in, this might not seem like a hard job, but it was easily one of the hardest in the build.

The rubber feet are the issue, as I screwed the screws in the rubber would compress and distort the location of the pump. This distortion would only be one or two millimeters but its still enough for the pumps to not look straight.

To work around it, I added a masking tape line and had to do each screw 2 rotations at a time (16 screws total) to ensure the rubber compressed uniformly across all 4 feet.

It's similar to the way some CPU blocks are mounted, where you have rotate each screw evenly to ensure the block and Thermal Paste remains even.

This was the end result:




Next up was mounting the motherboard. This is the mounting stand.



I added some foam to the bottom to ensure the case wasn't scratched.



And finally board in place.




I'm hoping later today to get the front bays in and then start on the tubing. How much I get done will depend upon Christmas (I have family flying in I have to pick up, etc).

Which reminds me, Merry Christmas all smile.gif
