Yeah, it is out of place the way I have it now. You are definitely right about that.

But this is how I think it might go once I put the 2 video cards in and plumb it ...



Alternatively, I could come straight down from the lower video card water block to where the power supply is then add a 3rd 90 degree fitting.

I swear, I can't catch a break with this build to save my life. Well, I tore the place apart looking for the 2 compression rings that I'm missing. They are no where to be found. Of course Performance PCs is out of them, so I just went ahead and ordered them from Sidewinder along with 15 more feet of Durelene tubing (I can always use that for other projects).

So basically, no water cooling for me for 4 or 5 days.

Oh well, I guess I'll fabricate the PSU cover/SSD holder and work on some more cable sleeving.

I removed the front I/O port and going to start working on sleeving the cables on it.



Here is the case and pedestal with the front face plat attached. I think that the flat black and gun metal work out very well together. I definitely have to figure out a way to stealth that BluRay burner.

Noob wc question here: the pedestal is used to hide/house radiator and such, correct? This is only necessary for two radiators, yes?

It basically just gives you more room. Most people put water cooling gear in there, of various sizes, but I've seen people draw up plans for other things. If memory serves, jassilamba designed one so he could put more hard drives and 2 power supplies in it. But yeah, it's mainly for more radiators and such.

The Switch 810 can already hold multiple radiators without modification. You can easily put a 360 or 420 radiator in the top without modification (you can put a 45mm one in "push/pull", meaning fans on both sides of it, or a 60mm radiator on one side) and a 140 or 240 radiator on the bottom of the case, again without any modification.

Me, I like to modify cases, and wanted to put a 60mm radiator with 2 sets of fans in it, so I had to do a little grinding. Also, I wanted to keep all my drive bays, in case I wanted to later put a bunch of 2-3TB hard drives in a RAID array and have it also house my music and video collection as a server. So adding a pedestal allowed me to all all the water cooling gear I wanted without having to remove the 2 hard drive card cages to put a 2nd radiator in.

I really like the front shot you took. And the flat black looks great with Gunmetal Grey.
You should get yourself some dark background material and a couple lamps. Then shoot that thing. It would look Awesome. thumb.gif

Oh, I will. Once this thing is totally done, I have a really twisted and unique location that I plan on taking this to shoot in great detail. It will be ... rather unique. wink.gif

Well, I got the old combination sheet metal shear/brake/roller set up to cut and bend the power supply cover for the case. Just have to finalize the measurements one last time.

The additional fittings came in yesterday, and today I've been messing around on how I want to finish up the routing.



I forgot I had an extra SLI connector. I think it looks good coming out of that 90 degree fitting on the top video card and shooting back towards the rear of the case. I tried to avoid 90 degree fittings as much as possible, but only having 2 in this entire build (aside from the fill and drain ports) isn't too bad.

Also, it may not be apparent, but the silver plate over the power supply is the metal I bent up. That will eventually be drilled to hold my SSD and painted ... you guessed it ... Orange. thumb.gif



Here is a close up of all the water blocks and tubing.




Not my best picture, maybe I'll re-shoot it tonight when there isn't massive glare, but it does show how things will look (ie most of the tubing hidden) with the cover on. I may see about putting another 90 degree fitting on the feed to the video card just to keep that one tube completely straight.
