Ok so I have grown very tired of the color and am going to get some BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK!

Anyone have any experience with spray painting mdpc?

Also I will be doing a gray coolant. Can anyone see any problems with mixing mayhems pastel white with pastel black?

Good luck! tongue.gif I wouldn't spray paint MDPC's however... I don't think it's made for that.

Love the MDPC shoelaces dude biggrin.gif

Well that didn't take long, LOL! I predict you'll be bored of all black within a month. I'll stay tuned for all the repainting, since that's another skill I don't have, but want. smile.gif

2 months of ek blue dye. Tygon 3606



I already like the look if it better.



Temporary set up. Still decent temps with just the thin 240 rad while I strip the 360.

Wow, I thought yours was pretty neat beforehand! My build is stalled. I have no energy or motivation to finish it due to serious sleeping problems lately. It's a mess, and I don't know enough to do proper wiring / recabling / etc. I seem to be having trouble finding good noob videos for that stuff. Christ, I haven't even set up a proper drain yet.

Thanks for reminding me. I need to put a drain in mine. Is the whole point of a drain to run the pump with the drain open so the loop just empties itself? For wiring what worked for me was just to do one at a time while visualizing all the cables as a whole. It can take some time but it sure isnt rocket science. As far as I am aware.

That's the idea. I just set mine up with a quick disconnect, and it seems to work well.

Stripped the paint off of the 360.



found a window smashed bird and nursed it back to life.



Touching up the fins with a little paint



As far as I can go with 400 grit. The one side panel and the 360 rad will be the only things with no paint.






Stipper bath




Primer



Log is all over the place now while I get little pieces of time to strip paint and stuff.

I always thought my temps could be better and I didnt know what I was thinking before it was so stupid. I had 3 scythe jyuuni slim ( 12mm ) fans on top of my 360 rad as pull and 3 ek fans as push. On my 240 I had 2 of the same slim fans on as pull and 2 AP-15's as push. I have learned not to mismatch fans. I am sure that air was probably getting almost stale and warm in the rad and wasnt being vented out as fast.

4 of these just came and I will just do push and then one for the case and compare temps.
