Compact Splash Brotherhood - Page 442

post #4411 of 4641
I would would wager it's the same problem as before. When the back panel is on, the pressure from the CPU block most likely increases, causing the CPU block backplate to short with the CPU socket on the mobo.

If you haven't already, put some plastic tape (cover the entire thing) on the CPU socket on the back of the mono, where it could potentially touch the CPU block backplate, given enough pressure.

The build is looking great BTW smile.gif

Edit: And god damn you're making me want to switch to hard-line tubing...

Thanks!! thumb.gif
Last time I covered the cpu block plate with tape. Is it safe to attach tape to the socket on the mobo?

I applied tape to the black metal "frame" in the middle, as that made contact with the block given enough pressure.

So, if we understand each other correctly, then yes, it's safe.

However, then pins, or whatever it is, inside the "frame" could theoretically short out on the adhesive if applied there, so, don't do that tongue.gif

I see...I'll try that when I install the GTX 1080.

Nothing super exciting to report, but I did get a 780 in the mail today. Should be a nice upgrade from my 670. toot toot!

Hey all did some maintenance on my Splash hasn't been opened up and worked on for 3 years in July, I drained the loop, flushed it, refiled it, cleaned out the dust. Its been sitting pretty idle for the past year and half as well with almost no running so things where starting to separate. Thought it would be fun to post here haha

You can see how much the pastel coolant has stained my tubes


Here I just want to remind everyone that barbs are dangerous if not used properly...


But the dust filters are awesome!


@MikeTheTiger I can update the second post with a picture of your splash/you build log, would you want both build logs or just the current one and do you have a favoured picture?

I'll PM you when I'm ready. I just moved to a new house and have been working on a fence for my yard (all by myself). So my plans to finish this weekend have been put on hold until probably next week. I'll keep you updated soon. All I got done this last weekend was putting the block and backplate on my new GTX 1080. Can't wait to put it through a workout!! biggrin.gif
