btw wanna ask some question about the hot air airflow from PSU (out take) does it effect your temperature since from your picture it was out take inside the case. thanks
COOL Build thumb.gif

Not that I can tell. The PSU has never put out any "hot" air even when I had it folding 700+ Watts 24/7. I don't think it cares one way or the other. I may add some more exhaust fans in the front of the case though, just to be safe.

Yeah, the problem is maintaining my nice balance of positive pressure so the dust stays in the filters. Its working super good right now, so much so that I might have to clean the filters once a week.

That is the first happy find concerning filters and fans and rads in a CL case, afaik. Good job on the replumbing design, looks to be a winner !

lol I was staring at that motherboard for like 10min asking myself what intel CPU fits in there. Then I realised this was a AMD build... doh.gif
OCN at 7 O'clock in the morning.

Build looks very good can't wait to see how the Mayhem pastel will look. Very nice fittings aswell, really like the shiny green. biggrin.gif

The pastel green will be tinted with dark blue, Mick assured me it will end up looking opaque darker green. That will happen this weekend most likely as soon as I get my new fans.

I'm hoping so. The EK LTX block is somewhat restrictive, so my CPU temps are not as good as I was hoping with the GPU blocks first. We'll see if this helps and also neatens up the appearance a little bit.

Same here rolleyes.gif

Those filters seem to be doing their job pretty well. I'm hoping mine do their job half as well, and also hoping I'll be able to use the vacuum cleaner to get the dust off them.
Liking your progress!

Some more work today. I got bored and decided to change the loop order, re-tim the CPU and put a backplate on to increase stiffness so the board doesn't warp with the block. Some major adventures were had.

Somehow I didn't get a picture, but when I drained the loop there was lots of black specks in it. I was afraid the EK blocks already developed some problems so I quickly pulled out the GPU's and got the top off of one of the blocks. There was some discoloration seen through the plastic so I feared the worst. However, they were fine with some buildup of black stuff that wiped off easily. Where is it coming from?

This pic is atrocious but you can see no corrosion anyways...

After looking carefully I saw the problem.... BITSPOWER. This guy... you can see the finish missing from the outside and the inside is totally black and nasty.

Oh noes everything is missing!

But I eventually found a backplate to some zalman cooler or something that worked with the EK block screws.

So now the real adventure starts. I got the loop all looking good, little did I know EK is a bunch of jerks who put fitting threads where only a plug can go. The line from the CPU block to the FC link is a trap about to be sprung on me. I didn't get any pictures of my panicking attempts to stop the water from jetting out again, just rest assured I eventually cleaned everything up and re-routed it (again). I also mixed up my Mayhems pastel green and added some dye to it to change the color, still a work in progress as I let the dye mix in thoroughly.

And here is a cool shots of how it looks lit by my monitor, camera seems to like this light source.

After some small tests, changing the CPU to the first block on the loop and putting the backplate on so the pressure is distrubuted evenly has dropped my load temps from 60*C at 4.8ghz to 54*C. Pretty happy with that outcome for just a little work.
