For no other reason than it would suck to not quite have enough, I'd say get an extra litre.

Not to say it looks bad as it is, though biggrin.gif You certainly put a ton of work in your build! The final video will be so good in the end with the flip open side panel to reveal the insides.

I'll second this @Gardnerphotos.

 

With the money and time you've put in, might as well get the extra liter to be safe. 


Then if you only need one, you have a liter as backup for top ups / to re-fill if you need to take it apart to clean it or something.

Ordered an extra litre today along with all of the other bits I think i will need, cost me another £500 frown.gif Spent so much money on this computer and now I want to buy a car but this is becoming a money drain so need to get it wrapped up, will have to sell if necessary which would be a shame given how much time I have spent on it.

okay so my power supply arrived today (silverstone strider 850 watt short version) and I had a quick look at the cables to check that they were one to one pinout and on the 24 pin I found a double cable at one end as well as the pin missing in the usual place whereas at the other end (I assume the power supply end) there were no double cables or missing pins. How can I get around this for my custom cables?

Strider PSUs all use pin 20 as a sense wire (to adjust voltage droop). It's connected to pin 13 (orange, 3.3V) at the motherboard side. You can safely ignore this double wire, as the PSU will stay within ATX spec without it. So just let pin 13 be a single wire and leave pin 20 empty on both sides.

Hope you're still subscribed to my log as well tongue.gif I know it's been slow lately but I have emptied out my case for the bigger changes. Like you I just want to get this over with already!

I am indeed, it is coming along nicely. Bit of a bummer, I was printing the brackets for the graphics card but then the 3D printer broke frown.gif not sure when it will be fixed either

So because I managed to break the big 3D printer on my first attempt I had to use one of the smaller ones which produced a crappy end product because it uses the same material for support material as it does for the main product whereas the big 3D printer uses a different material that dissolves in acid leaving a clean product. So I wasn't happy with the end product but it will do for now, as the printer is going to take a while to fix I will see if I can mill it from aluminium instead. In other news the loop is basically complete as I have managed to get all of the flexible tubing in place. I just need to secure down the graphics card and then it will be done. I also made a new bracket for the SSDs which sits below the power supply, this is a floating plate so I will be able to route all of the power supply cables behind it which will make things neater. You can also see in the photos that I have taken looking through the power supply cutout just how tight it is on the inside, fortunately with the remodelling of the inside the flexible tubing no longer kinks when you close the door but you can see how little room there is around the pipes going to the graphics card and also around the reservoir and RAM area. The tightest spot was between the junction from hard to soft tubing just below the SSDs with the PCIe connection from the graphics card so I had to cut a little off the acrylic tube in order to shift the fittings further towards the back so that the connection could fit in. Apologies for the phone pictures I will have better ones soon but I have so little room left on my laptop there isn't much room for large SLR RAW files which is why I desperately want this computer to be done frown.gif
