More work done on the motherboard surround. Remade the tubes for the CPU and mounted up the bridge for connecting the rigid tube to the flexible tube. Made a mess of the first attempt of the CPU run, it was all crooked and had melted a bit on the bend but second time round was perfect. Also sprayed up the bolts and standoffs for the motherboard surround so that it can float above the original locking mechanism.

Thanks man,

Got lots done today, finished up work on the motherboard surround and epoxied the standoffs for it into place, also finished up the bends going to the CPU, this is the fourth time I have done that run and I finally think I have nailed it, the tubes are almost perfectly parallel biggrin.gif I also put the graphics card back in and found an issue, the pipe going from the pump down the side of the side radiator was interfering with the PCIE connection of the card so I have had to re-route it right to the back of the case and then it follows the other flexible tubing run down the side of the case, across the front and round onto the door. We are almost there now, I need to make a mount for the adapter going from hard tubing to flexible tubing on that new run and then I need to draw up and 3D print mounts for the graphics card, once that is done I need to cut the ZMT tubing to length and install that and also order some more fittings (2 new C47 fittings for the GPU block) Do you guys think I will need more than 1 liter of coolant for this loop?? I have also taken some photos through the PSU opening to show just how tight everything is when the door is closed, in the last photo you can see how much wastage I have from the acrylic tube, that is just stuff from the last 2 weeks :/

No physical mods done today but I spent a good 2 hours on the computer designing the brackets that will hold the 7990 in place on top of the radiator, these will be 3D printed at the beginning of next week biggrin.gif

Thanks Justin, huge fan of your work biggrin.gif

Going back to my earlier question, do people think that 1 liter of coolant is enough or do I need a second?

Im interested in why you suggest blue? It is going to be yellow to fit in with the rest of the black,grey,white and yellow theme

To be honest I was a bit disappointed when I first saw the Sour Apple log and the main color turned out to be yellow instead of a light green as I expected for the name. Totally missed the chance there tongue.gif

interesting, the yellow has really grown on me, I think green wouldn't look anywhere near as good, plus green builds have been overdone, as is becoming the case with yellow so it was a chance to do something different.
