I would like to officially join the club!!!!! wheee.gif

Her are some of my pics

Drilling Fill Port

Thats her











I'm not real happy with the backside but it will do for now.

I found I am not very good at bending the pipe so I have to buy a few more to finish. Now that I have failed a few times and finished the second time I can do it pretty well.

I like it!

Have you guys ever thought of filling the tubes with damp sand when you bend so it doesn't crush like that? I know that trick from bending thin metal tubing. Then you just rinse it out until it's clean.

You have got your build looking unreal champ!!!

How have you got the fill port connected to the case & then to the reservoir? I'm considering having a fill port connected to the top like you have, so any info & tips would be awesome.

No but that sounds like a good idea. However I have a silicon insert that keeps it from doing that I just forgot to put it in till after I started heating it up on a couple. The ones I did right didn't have any issues. the biggest issue I had was measuring from one side to the other. I would always just be a little off and the bend was just not exact so it wouldn't seal propery. I have some more tubing on the way and I am going to finish the rest now that I have more precise measurements.

Thank you. The port I bought has a nut on the bottom with threads and you just put it in the 1" drilled hole and cinch it up. On the bottom of the port you also have 1/4" threading for a normal fitting for tygon or flexible tubing and then on top of my Res is another threaded hole for a fitting. I connected them with a short piece of flexible tubing left over from another build.


So above where the res is on the top of the case there is a plastic removable top and the port fit between that and the metal top of the case.

This is the one I bought and for someone who isn't exactly great with their hands it was pretty easy to do. Just have to make sure you measure first. what I did was turn the case upside down and put a sharpy in the res top and drew a circle when mounting the res to the back of the case. Then I drilled the metal, put the plastic top back on, drew a circle through the hole in the metal, and then drilled the hole in the plastic. I found the 1" hole saw at Ace for $13.

It yells Top of the Line case, yet in my case (and Linus's) both of us got a heavy static shock from the bag.
Would a clear or black plastic bag not be more ideal?

The bag is for the sack race after you have fun with your build . wink.gif

Quite possibly. I may have to check the credits though. thumb.gif

By the way I got shocked too. It wasn't bad for me though but I did find it kind of strange.

Quick question for anybody willing to help.

I have had this case for a while now and love it, currently have a 280 mm rad up front and would like to know how much work modding (If anyone has installed it) to put a 420 mm radiator in the front with 3 fans push only. Thickest i would go is 45 mm as that is what I have now.

Or I know it would be easier to just get a 360 but I like a challenge. Right now all i have in my loop is 2 gtx 770's and max load with the alaphacool 280 temps are 40 degrees; however I plan on adding a cpu block in the future and will need the larger rad.

I guess the right ? is, how big a performance difference will i notice between the 360 and 420 if its only 2 or 3 degrees i guess its not worth it.

Thanks.
