Yeah, I'm liking that shade of orange much better. It kills me because I initially looked at that shade when I picked up the other one but didn't go with it because everything else appeared to be a "satin" or "semi-gloss" and not a full on "gloss" paint. Oh well, at least the project is back on track now.

I did put the machine back together enough so I could let my daughter use it, in an unoverclocked state, to play a video game with her friend last night. Even with no water cooling and no major overclocking, it's still a pretty fast little rig.

Good for you man. Keep up the good work. thumb.gif

Nothing major to report today, so far, other than I removed all the masking tape from the radiator and top of the Switch 810 and it looks great. Most likely I'll give it another day to dry even more before I mount the top and start hooking up the water cooling system to the CPU.

I did, however, decide to take some #4 flat washers and hit them with some spray paint (some in orange, some in black), just in case I need them to hold the fans in place with either the Fasenal, MDPC, or OCCool hardware. I didn't bring my good SLR with me today, so you will have to suffer with my old 10MP Canon Powershot. wink.gif



Most likely I'll use the black ones down in the pedestal base (if that ever shows up), and I'm still not sure if I will use black or orange in the upper part of the Switch 810 case. But I'm not even sure if they would be needed at all. The Fastenal hardware seemed to work good on previous fittings, so I might not use them in the upper part, but then again, maybe the little bit of orange on the black part of the fans with a black button head fastener will "pop" and look nice.

Looks like I was able to put some of those painted black #4 washers to good use tonight. I pulled out the Alphaool Monsta 360 radiator tonight and mounted 6 of the Gentle Typhoon AP-14 fans to them. It's too bad you won't see this radiator, because it is simply BEAUTIFUL in all it's black and copper glory.



Here is the Monsta head on, from the "intake" side of things.




You can start to see just how thick this beast is when you get an overhead view of it with 2 sets of 25mm fans attached to it in a "push/pull" configuration.




A little better angle that shows off the thickness, all the variety of port placements, and all that lovely copper hardware.




This thing makes an otherwise massive XSPC RX 360 look tiny!

I put the radiator and fans on the modified Switch 810 top, and IT FITS!

Thank the lord, I can finally run all 6 of the Cougar fans in a "push/pull" configuration on the XSPC RX 360 radiator with the GA-Z77X-UP7 motherboard.

It's late, so I'll take pictures tomorrow ... after I order another Cougar fan from Newegg to replace the one I butchered.

The monsta is gonna go in the pedestal right??

Yes some pics would be great, and I hope you get your pedestal soon as I wanna see how it looks on your build.

Yes, the Monsta will be going in the pedestal.

Tonight, when I get home, I'll pull out the camera and take some more photos. I should have the replacement fan for up top in today, and it will be good to show upper radiator in place.

Depending on what the wife has planned for me tonight, I might even cut some Durelene and rig up the CPU water cooling part and place the dual bay reservoir and pumps in the upper part of the case just temporarily until the pedestal comes in. But then again, I don't want to cut too much because I will need a fair amount to run it permanently once the pedestal shows up.

But either way, expect some more photos tonight. thumb.gif

Well, I just got word from Dwood, and both the pedestal and the custom wire sleeve spacers I ordered from him are being shipped today. So with a little luck, I might get the parts by Wednesday and I will DEFINITELY be photographing those parts and then will assemble the base and put the base to the Switch 810 and shooting more photographs.

So I will not mess with just water cooling the CPU tonight, I'll just wait and do the whole thing at once. But I will do photos of what it looks like right now tonight.

I am so excited I can't stand it. Once the base gets here, things can really start to take off. biggrin.gif
