Having the ability to just melt a little of the sleeve and go shrinkless is another big benefit. Plastic is a good thing.


I was REALLY hoping you would drop by in my thread at some point Chris. biggrin.gif Your CaseLabs build has been one of the select few that have driven me to go the route that I did with my build. Please, by all means, don't be a stranger in my build log. thumb.gif

Thanks for the rep biggrin.gif

I thought MDPC's Commando Green would've matched the board perfectly. Or you can go with red and do a Xmas theme thumb.gif

But yeah Chris's build log is insane! He also inspired me make my own SATA power and 4 pin Molex cables. tongue.gif

Haha, my wife would actually love that one. thumb.gif She is super into Christmas with the decorations/music/clothing/etc every year. Might be a good way to get her to let me spend even more. biggrin.gif

You've got too good a list of stuff not to watch. Looking forward to it. I just hope you don't finish before me. redface.gif

Thanks ceteris! I got most of my inspiration from build logs here on OCN also. Great place!

Thank you for the kind words, Chris! smile.gif And I hope I don't finish before you either, it would just mean I didn't put enough quality time and caring into my build. biggrin.gif Keep up the work you are doing on your build though, it truly is one of the most amazing builds I have seen to date!


Edit: I am contemplating going with a 480 in the top and 360 in the front instead of 2 360's. I guess I need to wait for the case to arrive, and then I can try mock mounting a 360 in the front to see if I still have the clearance to mount my Lamptron. I know it will be tight with a 480 top and 360 front, but I am hoping if I went with the XSPC RX series there would be enough room for one between them with the tubing routed (inlet/outlet would be at the front for the top rad and the bottom for the front rad). They seem to be shorter than the Alphacool rads because of the lack of extra drain ports and the such. Any suggestions or anyone with first hand experience in a SM8 with a similar setup?

Addiction

So I am thinking about how I am going to go about setting up my loop to accommodate a simple G 1/4" Stop Plug Temp Sensor and a simple Drain Valve. I wanted to go this route to keep my fittings clean and matching, and didn't want to use the Koolance QDC's because they would stick out like a sore thumb. tongue.gif This is what i whipped up quickly in MS Paint. Let me know what you guys think.





Here are the links to the pump, pump top, and reservoir I plan to use: Pump, Pump Top, Reservoir.


I am thinking of switching to this pump though: Variable Speed Pump. Should I go with the variable speed over the other one I am considering? The cost is the same, so that isn't an issue obviously. This would still work wonderfully with my G 1/4" threaded pump top I assume? I have never messed with a variable speed, so it was just a thought. I assume the difference in stock fitting threads is negligible when switching to an aftermarket pump top. Let me know what you guys think! thumb.gif

Whichever route you go, you can get the pumps $20+ cheaper at Sidewinder.

Cool, thanks man! If I end up deciding to go with MDCP for the sake of my cables staying put/holding form better, I think I will end up going with the one on the left. I don't think that one would look too bad. Thanks again.

Thanks, Chris. Saving a little extra money is always a good thing. thumb.gif

I think you're good on your proposed drain setup. That is sort of the way my Switch is setup, although not draining directly from the pump I have a Bitspower T with the minivalve right after the pump. I just thread in a fitting with tubing attached when I want to drain it.
