Now that's a really good idea. I will definitely get around to doing that.

I was just making a joke because you were talking to FTW like he got his first computer yesterday. I'm really not going to explain myself anymore because you obviously didn't take my suggestion ffrom my last post to you to heart. So you just have fun doing your own thing. As long as you are enjoying your computer then that is all that really matters. Just don't be rude to us. We have a good thing going in this thread and we don't want someone coming in here telling us we don't know what we are talking about.

Yeah, I'm sorry. It's cool. I didn't mean to be rude.


As for the whole wire issue. Yeah there was a little more I could do, I messed with it for like 10 minutes and it looks a lot better. But the most important space around the radiator was just fine before. I just had a mess of wires at the bottom. But I did find some stuff I could place more optimally.

Just honestly, there is only so much I'm willing to mess with on this though, because this build has been such a doozy, and not just because I had to open a cpu with a razor blade, which wasn't too bad, but still nerve-wracking. But then getting my Corsair H100i and finding out the Asus Sabertooth Z77 I like so much, the plastic armour actually got in the way of it, but I eventually got the radiator attached, although it's skewed and not exactly center with the fans on top. Also, if anyone were to repeat this, Sabertooth Z77 + Corsair 400r + Corsair H100i, you'll find out you can only get two screws in it with push/pull configuration, three screws if you only use the one set of fans. Just that I was able to get things working right in the end makes me happy. Then I also bent the pins on my motherboard when I was switching from the 3770 to the 3770k, so went without a computer for awhile. *gasp* I'm just happy to have it all completed that I really wasn't even thinking about something like wires so it seemed trivial to me, but I suppose it was good advice, so thanks.

I will once the video and guide are changed from a barbarous and dangerous razor delid to the civilized, enlightened, safe and efficient hammer method tongue.gif

Seriously, it's like when you stop a clinical trial early because NOT using the new treatment is a waste of lives. The old method should NOT be up there anymore!

No hard feelings man, all we were trying to say even something like wires can be important in the pursuit of optimal performance, which is something I think we are all after here on OCN. Good luck! thumb.gif

Yea I hear ya man. It is gonna be a pain in the butt to do that. I could probably hide my SSD'S behind the motherboard and get rid of the opt drive all together so that way I can still get rid of all the bays. Then I can fit a 240 rad on the bottom and a 360 rad on the top and a 360 rad on the front and a 140 rad on the rear and I would still be able to fit one of those pumps / res things somewhere in the case. Still have to figure out where to put everything.

Ditch one of those rads IMO. It will be sweet with all those rads but its borderline "hokie", the new adjective for "excessive" here on OCN. tongue.gif

i run 3 rads. a 240 on my cpu and 2x 360's on my gpu's. works very well.

@ Valgaur, IvanL and Hokies @ w-c friends

...making good progress re the 'deskputer', but have a question...

...to recap briefly, of the 8 or so systems I have here in my home-office for work and play / VM, 3 are going to become part of a 'deskputer' as I desperately need to recover some space...

...I have chosen 3 mobos which are currently installed already in typical 'cases'...the Rampage IV w/3970X, the MVE w/3770K and the Sabertooth Z77 w/3770 (non-K)....btw, no cheap-shots in the Sabertooth - you all gonna get it later biggrin.gif

I now had a bit of time to lay it all out - the mobos, 2x AX1200 and 1x TX850 PSUs, the GPUs, W-C cooling and try it on a dedicated
'table top' I pirated from storage...I'm going to use cut-out mobo trays (metal) from old cases, with extra-long stand-offs. The basic dimensions (for now) are 4ft x 2ft x9 inches...in addition, there are things going to be mounted underneath (possibly the PSUs), while the rads are making up the 'back and one side' with the other 'side' being an air-intake w/filters...the whole thing will be under a glass enclosure for dust protection.

...then on the way to Starbucks, we happened to pass by an architectural / design firm...and in their show window, they had all these models of buildings, interior and exterior designs etc...all made out of wood and plastic - and get this: all mounted in custom-carpentry 3D wood and glass tables...so I went in and chatted with their model builder (master carpenter). He suggested another option: That of a wall mount !! That would save even more space and look spiffy on top. While I will use this architectural firm for some tricky wood work I can't easily do myself (various openings underneath for cables, pipes, IO shroud exits and such), the 'wall mount' approach vs the deskputer approach really is quite similar, but it does raise an important technical question:

...if mounted vertically, the w-c pumps (min 3x MPC 655) will have to push cooling liquids 'up hill' for close to two feet unless I change the design which has other consequences - before I do so, is there a data-table you know of that expresses additional pump pressures needed for each 1ft of height ? I'm using 1/2 x 3/4 PrimoChill advanced LRT tubing. Thanks in advance smile.gif

Wow a lot has gone on since my last visit..
Finally finding the time and energy to get around to getting the dragon skin applied. A lot more tedious than I had expected but I think it has gone well so far. Thanks for the advice to those of you who offered advice, I think I repped you all. FTW 420 I keep forgetting I can't rep you tongue.gif

About to wrap up the GPU like a pig in a blanket then I will be leak testing. I'll be sure to triple check everything.

poured the dragon skin through the holes in the backplate. Evened out nicely.
