Thread Starter 
Well, today wasn't a major build day (I took the wife and daughter up to the Hagerstown Outlet Malls and turned them loose ... God help me), but I did manage to drain the loop, tear down part of it, re-plumb parts of it, and refill it.

It went from this:




To this:










Now to let the system bleed air for about an hour or so. I guess I'll get up early tomorrow, head to Home Depot and pick up another can of black and orange before I go in to work early and hit the memory and PSU cover a second time.

Thanks. I am really impressed with what Mayhem did with the new blend.

Only down side to switching from just distilled water or distilled water + Mayhem dye is that the Mayhem pastel increased my temps while doing Folding @ Home by about 4-5C. Not the end of the world, it's just a bit higher than I expected. But still, I'd rather have the higher temps and the looks.

Here is a shot of the RAM heat sinks and the PSU cover all painted up. The pictures aren't the absolute best because I used my Galaxy S3 and not my DSLR, but they should do the job for now (while the colors actually do match the rest of the orange, the photos are a bit washed out). I think they turned out pretty nicely.

Good lord that previous photo looks horrible. Anyway, you can ignore it now. I've installed the RAM heat sinks and the PSU cover and taken some shots with the DSLR. Here they are:










Now to sleeve the SATA cable that goes to the Samsung 840 Pro SSD to the motherboard and make a custom length (and sleeved) power cable that will be about 5" long that will simply just go from the SSD to the PSU with as short a run as possible.

Yes, that is much better, lol.

Yah it does ! wow, need a full view pic when you can. Guess I missed your notes about the psu cover - you make it yourself ? what's the material ? Very niCE !

Yup, made it myself a couple pages back.

He who dies with the most toys wins, right? biggrin.gif

Just measured and cut some semi-thick aluminum stock to size and threw a 90 degree bend on it. Then measured and drilled 4 holes for the SSD to be secured, with a couple black screws and some spacers, so the drive floats about 1mm off the top of the painted aluminum.

It was really easy to do, you could almost do it with just a hand vise. I was temped to have Dwood make one custom for me and laser cut some holes to mount the 2 LCD displays for the temperature sensors, but with the one water cooling hose where it was, and as low down in the windows as the PSU sits, I changed my mind and went simple on the cover and will mount the LCD's elsewhere. I'm thinking about making like a 3" by 4" flat aluminum plate, cut the holes for the 2 LCD displays, and then drill 2 holes to mount it on the edge of the rear part of one of the 5.25" drive bays. That way they will be prominently displayed int he window. Either that or I will break out the Dremel and cut 2 holes in one of the 5.25" drive bay covers and mount them on the outside of the case on the front. Not sure yet.

I started sleeving the SATA cable for the SSD.



I must be running low on sleep because I started pushing the orange sleeve on a black SATA cable, totally forgetting just how bad it would look with the black poking through the weave.




So ... I pulled it off and put orange electrical tape on the SATA cable so that you will only see orange through the weave of the orange sleeve.




Sliding the sleeve BACK on to the now taped SATA cable.




After measuring and cutting to length, things are looking good.




Here is the completed cable with heat shrink on the ends.
