First time modding - 800D Build Log - Page 12

post #111 of 151
Thread Starter 
Just ordered coolant and tubing. I ordered 250ml of Mayhems X1 UV Blue concentrate which is meant to make 2 litres. Went with the concentrate so that I can get the colour I want. I went and bought primochill advanced lrt uv blue tubing. I know it may seem strange getting coloured tubing and colured coolant but it is mainly so that the colour can be seen in the blocks and the reservoir. Now all that remians to be bought is the pump which hopefully I will get in the next dew days and fans. Then just a few smaller things to buy such as the rad grill, fan filter and then after I have aquired them I will order leds and other things that are not as important.

Well I finally got my computer up and running again so here are some picks of the rads and the cpu block. The rads have a few bent fins but that is to be expected when you are buying used things.


My tubing and concentrate also came today but I missed the postman mad.gif. Not that much of a problem though as I am going to go pick up the package a bit later so expect another update later.

Well guys I am finally done with the mods biggrin.gif. I am very happy with the results, for my first time. Here is a pic of the last cut that I had to make to accommodate the 240mm rad in the bottom. It is a very poor cut and I probably could have done a lot better but it is on the bottom of the case and so will not be visible. Drilling the holes for the screws was the most annoying thing ever. It took much longer than expected and and made ears ring from all the noise mad.gif. I have checked though and the rad does line up with the srew holes I cut, all be it a little bit crooked tongue.gif.

Finally here is a picture of the case with the side panel and new window. I am very happy with it. The only problem with it is that despite buying the strongest double sided sticky tape I could find the plexiglass is not completely stuck on the bottom left hand corner and is visible at a normal angle. This will really annoy me if I have to live with it so I am not sure what I am going to do to sort that out.

Well bad news today. I moved my case up to the new house as I am moving very soon and the plexiglass got scratched somehow. Im not sure how it happened but it is very annoying as it is more money that has to be spent. Here is a picture of the scratches:

Im not sure how it happened but they are easily visible and would annoy me greatly if they stayed there.

Ok well I have a problem. I moved house yesterday and so I though I would move my current setup into the 800D but my 8 pin eps does not reach the connector point on the motherboard if I go behind the motherboard tray. My question is can I use an extension cable and plug that directly into the psu and then into the sleeved cable or will that not work?

Assuming the pinout is straight from the PSU, i.e the wires don't cross from connector A to B, should be totally fine.
