I think when the next batch of sleeves arrive i think ill change it a bit, i think the main 24pin needs a bit more black as it look a little too green, but we shall see,

I do think the shrinkless braids look sexy tho!

Whilst im waiting for stuff to arrive, heres my current which is going to be disemboweled in a few days! (the storm troopers will not be disembowled!!)

Just waiting on the other screws for the XSPC 360RS (older one which uses M4 screws not M3) to mount the front rad.

Now, i am open to suggestions on tube routing... the pic below is the motherbaord side of the case, the mobo will be mounted on that metal plate, directly above it is the 360 rad from the pics before, fittings closest to the camera, to the right you can see the res, below that is the pumps location, to the right of that is where the other 360 rad lives.

Now i was planning it as follows...
res-->pump-->GFX (going from bottom card 1st)-->rad(top)-->cpu-->rad(front)

trying to get the shortest distance in tubing.

Better to have the barbs on front rad at bottom or top?

Will 1 12v Liang be enough pump power?

Some updates, The bits you REALLY wanna see..

I took apart my old system and took out the hardware.

Mobo, cpu and ram






GFX cards came out. I know theres a lot of folks out there who would rather take a bullet to the ass than use dyes/coolants but i DO use them and i do like them.
Blue didnt stain or anything but red seems a bit more stubborn... Staining but no gunk! ive been using Mayhem X1



Mounted the Board with no issues, it looks snug

Hard Drives came out next and were fitted to the UFO







****ing dog hair i know! this case is like a magnet!!!!!


I hate the crappy 90's colour of optical drives!




So i took it apart and sprayed it over, thoughts?




took a time out....


After taking the pump off of the Xspc dual bay i slapped the EK top on it, once i get the delivery of sleeving i will get that braided and fitted in the case.



So heres how ive left if for now....




Stay tuned!

Updates, Tubing is in (ive not connected the pump properly as i want to sleeve the wires before sticking it down.)

heres the tubing...








LIGHTS OFF!




didnt realise the green braids were uv!

Lastly i thought id see the difference...

on the left is tygon clear tubing with Mayhem X1 Green, On the right is the Green tubing,
Im leaning more towards the coloured tubing, plus the green during normal light looks a little like wee wee! smile.gif




Thats it for now..

I finished work early today so thought id fill it up and lead test/bleed the system...



Started alright but then....





I thought "where the f**K is that coming from?" it wasnt hte barbs as it was coming from the other side of the rad. Luckley i could take the rad out of the loop with out draining it all and discovered that it was one of my screws!! (Facepalm!) I orignially had 35mm M3 Screws for this rad in my 800d, they were the perfect size however i found out that the MM case is a lot thinner than the 800D so i needed 30mm screws, I took the fans off, all of the screws were 30mm and there it was!! 1 screw was 35mm and was embedded in the fins of the rad! (double facepalm!)
So now its a new rad on order. Im so Pissed at myself!!! :S

Heres the damage... (i bent the metal back for a better view seeing as that rads being binned!!
