I think it would be such a shame, your case and how you've done the tubing is so unique.

Anyway, for the moment revision more important. Is it A-levels or degree? Not sure how old you are?

It would. I have AS levels but I need to clear my head, I think I will get rid of the drain port as that was not effective and because it had so many fittings was probably the cause of the leak. I also found some coolant outside of the o-ring on the GPU block but that could have got in from the outside from the leak rather than leaking out because when I tested it in an external loop it worked fine with no leaks. I think the key suspects at the moment are either a fitting or the reservoir or potentially the gpu block.

When you finish, I'm not sure if sponsored builds can be on mod of the month, but man I would nominate and vote for you bro!

Please please please take this project to the end!

Once it's finished you can make it a hackintosh (sorry to any mods if you see this), and bring it to the apple store and ask for help wink.gif

And record the whole thing, that would be a site to behold!

Anyways, don't be discouraged! You are doing something that has NEVER been done, you are a pioneer, Macbane was air cooled, but you are crazy enough to put it under water! Problems will always come to those who blaze the trail into the unknown smile.gif

been up for MOTM once before when it was partially complete but didnt get it, I might start a log over on BitTech or something. That would be hilarious, wonder what they would actually do haha.

Thanks for the kind words smile.gif

Are there any rules against competing for MOTM again? I think you'd have more of a chance now that you're closer to completion.

I think we can let that one slide. It would be quite amazing to see.

Finally felt like doing something to do with computers this afternoon so I set up a leak test loop for all of the radiators which in passing also tested most of the fittings as well as the pump and reservoir and fortunately there wasnt a single leak biggrin.gif. I still want to do a proper leak test with the GPU and CPU blocks to be sure as well as all of the fittings, especially the rotaries. The 7990 block is worrying me a bit as there is still coolant outside the oring that hasnt evaporated, between the plexi and nickel, I think this is where the leaked fluid came in from the outside rather than the block leaking but I dont really want to have to take the block apart to clean it, how easily do those big orings go back into place? There are also a couple of bits of crap caught up in the fins of the gpu block, circled, any way of getting these out? They touch the surface of the plexi block so are visible even with pastel coolant in so if possible it would be nice to get them out. I also think I will ditch the drain port as that had so many fittings and was ineffective anyway, this should open up some more space for cables in that corner.

I also have the video of the filling up until it all went wrong so I might upload that, it did look very pretty until it went tits up tongue.gif
