Pedestal complete!

Ped is finally finished up, and after a few fill and drains, completely leak tested. I originally thought a second D5 in the same loop wouldn't really produce as much performance as it would reliability, but when I hooked up the second one, there was a noticeable difference!

Looks really well done!

Thanks! it weighs a ton! I'm sure glad there's casters on her cause when this thing is finished, it'll be a fat chance for it to leave the ground.

I bet it weighs a ton lol. My case when it will be fully loaded will weigh a ton too lol, not nearly as much though.

Got everything cleaned up from leak testing and put her all together, so better pics were in order:

Great mod K. It looks manufactured. Tidy work. I'm interested to know what you planned for the bottom of the case where the fan holes are. Reason being is that the fan hole covers can be modded to pass through cables and tubes when coming from the pedestal. thumb.gif

Thanks Victor! I'll be covering the fan holes on the bottom with the triple 120mm covers from CaseLabs, on both sides. That'll clean up the bottom really nice.


In other news: I slid the mobo tray in and connected everything up to get the MPS 400 flow meter working and get a good GPM reading.. only to see one of my video cards is acting pretty quirky and causing DPC Watchdog errors a few minutes into every boot. I think I've limited it down to one card though with a little more troubleshooting, an RMA will probably be in order.

I hate when this happens. Sorry to hear K. I gather you have sufficient power to the PCIe lanes? Worth testing cards individually and if successful testing together across different lanes. Worth confirming the SLI cable is OK whilst your at it. I assume the waterblocks are not on either as yet?

Yeah it sucks for sure, but always a risk to take. You're correct with the power, I've got the additional PCIe power 6pin plugged in and tested that was receiving correct power via multimeter. For trying across the separate lanes, I took all the cards out, separated from SLI bridges and tried each card individually in the first PCIe lane. The strangest thing is, #1,2, & 4 card all worked perfect. #3 card kept throwing me into a continuous boot, reboot cycle. Since I had already blocked all these cards, I took the waterblock off and put the air cooler back on. Trying again in the first lane with air this time.. it worked perfectly? I'm not quite sure what the problem was besides maybe a screw for the waterblock was a little too deep and causing a short or something. Either way, I ran the air cooled #3 card under FurMark deep burn for 30 minutes without a hitch. When I get more time after work tomorrow, I'll put the block back on, paying extra attention to the screws and whatnot, and then try it again, under water. Even though the problem is still a mystery, I think I may be able to avoid a RMA at this point in time. It's also worth noting the #1,2, & 4 cards are sequential serial numbers (i.e. 0006, 0007, 0008) and the #3 card giving me the problem is from a few cards down the line (i.e. 0076). Potentially related? Doubtful, but interesting nonetheless.

Hmmh, interesting! Glad you got further with the test. It sounds like something is shorting or the block is for some reason too heavy or the contact with he block is either not right or there is something (dirt) in the TIM or contact strips.

Do you have back plates? Black plates alleviate the weight of the water-block from the PCB.
(forgot you had the blocks on before hand. Looked back and you do have back plates...ignore the comment)
