i decided not to cut them short, only because the cables would run directly over the cpu waterblock, therefore having the cables right in the way of the tubing. so i'll just wing the regular length, it should be fine.

With that length, the crossovers don't even look so bad. Might look even more natural when you install it. Looking forward to see pics.

Oh and hope your finger is better soon smile.gif

thanks! haha yeah i saw that! very tempted to just grab the 3570k now but i'd like to get the motherboard first, and i also have xmas presents to buy! doh! hopefully they wont run out any time soon, i dont think they will as black friday was the main reason they got cleaned out.

yeah i was really happy with how it came out, first being it doesn't look as tangled with the regular length and second i think i did okay with my first sleeving job ever lol. got some more pics for ya, and my thumb is sliced pretty good! through all the layers of skin and down to the meat. the atx extractor is what did it. i got 2 nice deep gashes because of that tool lol.


here are some more things i got done tonight!

sleeved the pump


sleeved the molex cable


plugged in the molex cable to the fan controller and pump, the only things needing the molex connectors, as well as the 24 pin to get a preview of what it might look like..


went to the auto store and picked up a fuel filter there to run as a filter so i can get make sure i get all the particulates out of the radiators before it chews my pump up


and i also switched my 240 rad fans so they're now behind the rad instead of in front, gives me more room between it and the case. should work pretty well as now the fans push through the rad (with great ease i may add) and since the rear acrylic sheet is vented, the inside of the case will get a nice current of air through out the whole thing



tomorrow im hoping to paint the fan blades white, and get a few more cables sleeved.
i need to order a few fittings, and some more 120mm fan grills. i wish i ordered more danger den grills when i ordered them at the time. oh well.

Interesting idea with the auto filter. What tubing were you using again? I might just add that to my filtering setup as well.

yeah i actually picked up the filter idea of another thread in the watercooling forum here, cant remember who posted about it but he had a picture of it in use and it indeed was catching debris and actually working so i figured i'd give it a try. it was 4 dollars anyway so it couldn't hurt tongue.gif

and the tubing im using is primochill lrt 3/8"id 5/8"od, it's their old batch of tubing so plasticizer shouldn't be a problem , but i will be using ice dragon after i run distilled to clean the system. i'd like to find a permanent place for the filter but i just dont think i'll find a good place for it.

here's some other things i did recently.

painted the fan blades for the rear 240 rad. i didnt paint the other 4 seeing as you'd never see them anyway. they came out pretty good!


ran to fry's and picked up some 120mm fan grills so i could place the danger den ones on the 240 rad.




(i know you like the xmas tree)

sleeved all the fans and sleeved the 3 pin y cables



sleeved the psu sata cables





this is how it sits at the moment. realistically you'd only be able to see part of the motherboard, blocks and tubing. and then whenever i get the gpu in, which will be after everything as i can run the rig without a gpu so i can save up for it, you'll see mainly the gpu block. thats why i plan to go with watercool's block. i have one on my 7970 and they're beautiful.

You've made lots of progress! Nice to see.

What is that fan controller PCB in there?

That's pretty nifty! Paint turned out better than I thought it would, unless you photo shopped it lol. I cringe at the idea of painting fans in general and have seen some crappy jobs on other logs, but I guess they really wanted their particular color of choice.

I wouldn't bother with the filter in your rig once it's up and running. If you are really paranoid about the particles floating around, you can flush your loop for a week before powering up. I put about a day on each of my rads but there was still some stuff left when I drained my loop to change things around. This was after I gave each of them a vinegar shake too.

haha thank you sir! its a sunbeamtech 3 channel..

here's a link to what it is:

I put about a day on each of my rads but there was still some stuff left when I drained my loop to change things around. This was after I gave each of them a vinegar shake too.

haha thanks man. i actually take pride in my rattle can skills - they're a few tricks i've learned over the years rattle canning just about everything. the main trick is to warm the paint can up. you can do this by boiling some water and then placing the paint can in the water after its cooled down a bit. dont put the paint in the boiling water! but it heats up the molecules and allows it to mist up much more fine then if it was cold, and it dries much faster as the paint is already heated up. and with each light coat you apply, hit it with a heat gun from a distance. i did about 4 coats on each fan.

and with the filter - yeah i agree with ya. i wont need to run the filter 24/7 once i've flushed everything out anyway. i do tap water/vinegar shakes with the radiator and then run my tap water through the rads for about 30 minutes normally. but what i'd like to do, is get the pump and rads hooked all up, with the filter of course, and fill the res and run the pump for a couple hours with that filter just catching all the debris. technically being able to walk away with it and let it do its job. still a little paranoid something will happen when im not around it though..

btw i dont photoshop any of my photos man! they are straight from my s3 lol


EDIT: i'd like to reiterate that advice about the paint can in the boiling water. DONT put the paint can while the water is still boiling. its much too hot. however the water can be pretty dang warm and you should be okay. putting the paint can in boiling water would probably over pressurize the can to the point of rupture lol

Thanks for the tip! I'll try to keep that in mind, although I won't be doing it anytime soon. The fans I have are the right color I want, except maybe the NF-F12's I have sitting around. Not sure if I want to tamper with those... even though the doo doo Louis Vuitton color scheme is kind of a turn off. LOL!

haha yeah i never really understood having a fan that color to begin with. like, it doesn't go with ANY other computer color scheme that you can buy off the bat. weird lol i say you paint em! thumb.gif



so i went back to the autostore and picked up another filter. figured i might as well run 1 filter after each radiator just to ensure my stress levels would be down when i'd walk away from it running while it cleans the loop out lol tongue.gif

only 3 bucks i cant argue with that either. i'd like to run the filters today and clean the rads out but im not sure whether i should leave the build together at the moment or tear it apart just to clean the rads. it'd be a huge pain mad.gif
