Thanks guys.

Day1, no massive casualties thus far. After an hour of running on the above loop, I found the pump to be very hot and the water very turbulent, and some vapor inside the res because of heat dump. Heat dump is definitely very real!



So the loop was modified to accommodate a 480 rad with 4 GTs, and it's now chugging along happily. Pump's still warm, but I stuck my finger inside the res and the water's very chilly. No leaks thus far, but with my tweaking, twisting, and tinkering, I find these push fittings are very finnicky. 1) They must be pushed ALL the way in, or they will leak 2) When I lift and move my rad around to bleed it, the fittings sometimes partially unscrew and minor drips occur (between push-fitting and Bitspower adapter).

The second issue is mostly due to me having a series of rotary fittings together, and should be a non-issue in the final build. When I have a bunch of angles that don't do anything, anytime a component moves it tends to twist something else loose. After I let it sit it's no longer a problem.

Both can be solved with some teflon tape, which I definitely will be using for added security on the threading.

Auw yea!

The hardest part is done.


A few days of dremel and filing in what could be done in an hour tops via CnC, with 9000% less risk.




Height clearances via 13mm standoffs. My 22mm screws haven't arrived yet, so I'm temporarily using 30mm ones from my UT60 rads.


Detail shot. Clean and crisp. biggrin.gif


Southbridge block area.


With the PCIE dust blocks. Asus pls respond! I need to find spare ones!

I will now further consult Photoshop and see what sort of paint pattern to apply. Stay tuned!

Looks aweseome! Any chance of recreating this in smoked acrylic?

I can definitely be done, it just takes a long while.

Haha, thanks.

Done it by hand out of stubbornness.
