Got my powder coated parts back last night. It looks really nice actually smile.gif Really happy with the colour.

I started to rebuild my computer, this is how far I got.

Motherboard and backplate mounted, I suddenly realised I cut the holes for the reservoir but there wasn't enough space for the fittings and tubing... I done goofed :L. Looks like ill have to buy a 150mm radiator

There literally was no space. My measurements were off by a couple of millimeters... but it still managed to fit. Barely.

Midplate Installed

View from the back

All done!

Slowly getting there mixed with my revision... Got my holes cut for cable management. I/O cables connected and power switches Need to cut the midplate holes but its too late and theres a baby next door. Don't want a screaming kid and angry parents on my hands. All for today folks.


Mounted the SSD and Hard drive. Bit of a jumble sale out back... mad.gif

The hole I cut with my dremel for cable routing

MOAR photos


With midplate installed.





Couple of questions first off. How would you guys go about drilling the 3/8" Male hole for the Res out to go through the midplate? Also what drill bit size should I use? 9mm?

What exactly do you mean by "male hole"?

Looking at your sketches from above it looks to me like you wish to do a simple pass-through? Since 3/8"
is a bit larger than 9 mm I'd probably go with a 10 mm bit. Or am I misunderstanding your intentions?

Cheers smile.gif

And yes I've ordered 2 x
Bitspower G1/4" Female / Female Pass-Through Fitting / Fillport.
I just don't know what size to drill. Somewhere said 16mm and somewhere said 9 and now 10... Lol help would be greatly appreciated

I'm assuming you mean this piece?

Interestingly, it is listed as having a G3/8" outer thread on frozencpu's site, but Bitspowers' own site lists it as having
an M20 outer thread here (same part No., BP-MBWP-C04).

I'm not sure if there's something I'm overlooking. In any case, the G3/8" outer thread has an outer diameter of 16.662 mm
according to this site.

If it's an M20 thread, you'll probably need a 21 mm dia hole (I'm guessing it will be a fine thread, if it's a medium M20
you'll need a 22 mm hole, and if it's a coarse thread 24 mm, but it doesn't look like that on the pics).

I'd recommend waiting until you get the parts and then doing your own measurements. In any case, while 3/8" is ~9.5 mm,
a G3/8" thread is substantially larger than that. I think the thread size originally referred to the pipe's inner diameter which
would be used with a corresponding fitting. So a G3/8" fitting would have been used with a pipe of inner dia 3/8", and therefore
the fitting itself would have needed to be a tad larger. I don't think it translates like this anymore today though, it's just
how things developed historically.

Okay I think I might just wait until I get the fitting and test it out on a piece of metal I have lying around! I emailed Geoff (I think) from frozencpu and he said that I would need to drill a 20mm hole for it to fit flush... Shall see shall see.

FAIRLY LARGE UPDATE.... So wishing I had that SLR right now :L

Well, my EK 770 Waterblock arrived, my tubing and my new 150 reservoir also. Not to mention my reducers and some bits and bobs (screws)

Here's the progress I made today:

Okay well my Swiftech 665 has 1/2" barbs and im running 3/8 id tubing... Hmm wink.gif SO I got some 7/16", heated that stuff up and finally managed to get it over the barbs. Then I got my 1/2" to 3/8" reducer and put it onto the other end of the tubing. Et voila! thumb.gif Pump top say what... V2 right here biggrin.gif


Got a bit hungry... Lol, nothing beats strawberries and ice cream (menstrual female coming out)


Anyway got round to disassembling my card, ugh this thing is a pain to put back together with a backplate on ill tell you that... It works but aesthetically looks pretty bad at the moment. Need to buy some more m3 6mm Red anodized screws from Fcpu.. :L



GLAMOUR SHOTS wink.gif





CPU Block and all my fittings will be arriving within the next couple of days! Thats pretty much everything that I need other than coolant and MOAR ram tongue.gif Stay tuned folks smile.gif

EDIT: My ap-45's are still on the high seas... ****. Wishing I went for the 1850rpm ones right now :L

Looking great! I only wish I had the time and funds to hurry up my build. One question, did you get that pump from frozen cpu?

Cheers and yep I did.
I'm having to buy 1/2 tubing to fit onto the barbs cuz there isn't enough clearance with the pass through connector to have my reducer there :'(
