Would like the low down on the rads and their performance. Looking at getting an AX240 myself.

Great looking build mate, little jelly rolleyes.gif

Thank you!

For a bit more info on the rads, Bundy covers the AX360 here.

What I understand is that they're basically all copper versions of the EX series core, and then the outer portion works like a shroud to further increase efficiency.

These radiators are absolutely gorgeous. The finish is above and beyond what you'd expect on something like a radiator. It almost makes me regret the plans I have for them....




Wow, those radiators truly look boss. Keep up the good work!

I've been spending my free time trying to learn how to bend pipe well mostly. Needed to figure out what I was able to do with it before finishing up the loop plan and buying fittings.

While in this process, I hit a couple of snags.

1) The materials I bought for painting the board just aren't going to cut it. I've basically destroyed my G1 Assassin 2 board working with a few different mediums I was hoping would work out. I'm going to have to switch to acrylic paint, which I'll be working on this weekend.

2) The reservoir with pump adapter doesn't work at all with my original plan as it's way too large. Figuring out what to do with that and how it relates to the pipe bending above has further delayed finally purchasing the correct fittings.

3) I started sleeving the ATX 24 Pin, and it is very very difficult to do with this AX760i. I'm leaning towards getting the Corsair cable set and doing the fans/pumps/LEDs myself, but am conflicted about the two different styles of cable sleeving clashing too much.

Sure, I could take some.

I was hoping that I could use paint markers. However, the oil based paint just does not dry properly on the RAM and expansion slots. I then tried a Sharpie, and it doesn't look consistent enough up close. Same with a heavy ink marker.

By ruined, I mean it just looks bad. But that's okay because that's why I tried it on a motherboard that I wasn't planning on using or selling tongue.gif

Thank you very much! With my loop planned out, I'm going to go ahead and move forward on creating my mid plate and getting that mounted, as well as work on painting my motherboard this weekend.

Haha I'm experiencing the same thing. I say keep at it and you will get better. I started with a botch job on the 6-pin PCIe AUX connector, then moved onto fans, switches, USB and front panel connectors which were easier to do without worrying about the MDPC heat shrink into the connector look. Now I've got molex figured out and ready to move back to the ATX connectors. There is nothing like cut to length cables to get that clean look on the back of the motherboard tray.
