Do you really need to tear down the build? Your rads are external. Unless you are short elbow fittings, I'd keep them on and flush them that way.

i just might lol because at the moment, i am completely out of angled fittings. but i may just wait and flush out the system after i get all the fittings i need. i spent a lot of time looking for the right 90 degree rotary fittings that could even work for the pump, since its right up next to the power supply. turns out the only fittings that'll fit are enzotech 90 degree rotary barb fittings.

thanks man! yeah i was making good progress last week...money has slowed down a bit with buying my family xmas presents lol but i should be able to pull off my last performancepcs order before i can get the rig up and running.

my girlfriend is going to buy me a 3770k for xmas and my bday since its on jan 10th so im super stoked on that! biggrin.gif gotta order the motherboard after xmas and then it'll come down to making final measurements and deciding if i have enough room to slap a waterblock on the nb/ram and mosfets. im hoping i can. that was the whole point of the build; watercooling everything on a performance itx build even if it doesnt need it lol.

alright so i was finally able to make an order that will allow me to really get some progress going on this build.

here are the parts i ordered:

1 x PrimoChill Anti-Kink Coils - Clear
- Anti-Kink Coil Size: 5/8" will fit 5/8 OD Tubing
1 x PrimoChill Anti-Kink Coils - Black
- Anti-Kink Coil Size: 5/8" will fit 5/8 OD Tubing
2 x Enzotech 90 Degree Rotary Fitting G 1/4 Thread - 3/8" ID Barb
1 x Enzotech 90 Degree Rotary Fitting G 1/4 Thread - Male to Female
1 x Ice Dragon Cooling Nanofluid Coolant - 32 oz.
1 x EVGA LGA 1155 Intel Z77 Stinger Mini-ITX Motherboard
5 x PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing - 3/8in. ID X 5/8in. OD - Crystal Clear

thank god for getting paid early tongue.gif

im really excited about the evga stinger. i've been eyeing that motherboard for MONTHS, way before it was even released.

i also went on Newegg and ordered a set of the Samsung 4gb ram modules, 8gb total. the ram will be sitting very close to where the reservoir will be horizontally so i just went ahead and got the Samsung ram to be sure i wont have a problem with space, plus i have wanted to get my hands on that ram for myself for a while now biggrin.gif

the main reason im looking forward to the motherboard coming in is i'll finally be able to take some up close and personal measurements so i can decide for sure what waterblocks i'll need for the mosfets and nsb.

im remaining hopeful that i will still be able to run a ram waterblock with the res being so close. i've been eyeing several kits that are designed for 2 dimms, and the lowest profile kit i can find is the Bitspower kit. the actual acetal on top of the nickel plate is much lower than the EK and Alphacool kits. i really wanted to run the EK kit but it's not that big of a deal. i also would like to run normal compression fittings on every block on the motherboard. i have always preferred the fittings to be normal fittings and the tubing bent to accomodate the fittings rather than spending more money on crazier fittings. i like the tubing look more than the fitting look. but i love compression fittings lol.


i ALSO finally decided where the tubing will be exiting the rear acrylic panel and cut out the holes for it. i'll have pictures up later tomorrow.

im assuming it'll be way after xmas that i get all the new parts i ordered. and that's fine. i still need to wait for my girlfriend to get me the 3770k biggrin.gif

okay too much typing.

went to home depot, got some cheap 3/8"ID tubing, and started flushing the loop out..



the outlet plug on this filter wanted to keep leaking no matter what, even with 4 zipties lol


let it ran overnight..






all in all, it's hard to tell whether the filters are picking up any debris, but i did flush out the phobya 480 rad before, and the xspc rads dont have much debris in them when anyway. so who knows. i figure the filters were much better than just flushing them out in the sink.
it's still running right now, i've never owned a D5 before, but damn i can see why everyone loves them lol. even on setting 5 its virtually silent!

very cool biggrin.gif

Cheap tubing actually looks pretty cool. I bet it would give a nice effect with Monsoon Lightports.

Yeah, bro! D5's the way to go.

Seeing your flush loop set up, definitely interested in seeing how you really piece the final loop together. thumb.gif

haha yeah it actually is pretty neat - then again the tubing is SUPER stiff, it would definitely not be fun at all with compression fittings. im thinking nightmare lol
