Last build (one of son's friends) I got the dreaded CPU error and after reseating the CPU 3 times, and testing everything else, turned out it was a bad GFX card. Tho all was working fine, I wake up at night fearing something will pop up with one of the GFX cards or CPU and I;ll have to take whole damn thing apart.

I guess I spent 4 hours doing (hardlining tubing) what ya saw in my last pic....

..... and yes, scroll saw makes much nicer / faster cuts on tube than handsaw smile.gif Best part was .... it was my wife's so can't get in trouble for buying new tools for my addiction. been sitting in garage unused for about 8 years .... she used to use to make Xmas themed lawn ornaments.

Was wondering if ya had a suggestion for the res top air evacuation issue I mentioned at end of post # 1487 .... basically when ya use an inner fill tube in top res port to reduce noise, how do ya get the trapped air out..... the tube extends 2-1/2" roughly into the res of which I was hoping to fill half that space w/ coolant. With the only top hole connected to rigid tuning, the only option is unscrewing the top which seems scary in a full loop....and it's kinda hard to "get a grip". When I had it outta the case, flipping and turning I only managed to get the tube about 1/16th an inch into the fluid.

Only option I can think of is drilling a small hole in the top of the tube ..... just below the threads ..... it will "pee" a little bit but could be positioned towards the back and outta sight

Its time for you to place another order with Frozen, get another EK bottom, and use it as a top (http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18485/ex-res-481/EK_X3_Reservoir_Multiport_Replacement_Top_-_White_EK-RES_X3_-_Multiport_TOP_WHITE.html?tl=c615s1884b133#blank)

That would be the best solution as that will also help you when it comes time to drain or do anything else.

In a perfect world your fill port should work as your air vent port.

I'm installing my blocks tonight, then building the loop tomorrow. I hope to have it filled tomorrow, but that might have to wait until Sunday depending on how long mounting and tubing everything takes. And don't even get me started on cable management.....and sleeving.....and little aesthetic mods.

Eventually, though, I will be able to sit back and game again on this gaming rig, right? lol

Water cooling is easier than it looks. The first time is confusing as no matter how much research you do, nothing beats hands on. But yes you should be able to game or do what ever without any issues.

I bet I spent hours staring at all my goods, trying to figure out my loop. I'll post pictures later but have it all good now. Very please with the Koolance GPU block for the R9 290x, max core temp has been 48 C which is a nice change over the 95 + unbearable noise.

I feel like I should have a 240 rad on the side bracket but if I recall, I had space issues with drive in a drive cage there.

Can the dust filter at the top of the case be removed leaving only the perforated mesh?

Yeah thought of that .... what worried me tho if that once screwed on ...they wouldn't match direction....EK has that odd flat side which would look awkward if facing opposite directions.

That's happened on most of my fitting combos.... screwed together things wind up facing wrong way so have to use a C47 to get the right twist.

PS....thank you again...package arrived today..... damn postman arrived right after machine shop closed.

Seems to me that coming outta ya res to a "T-fitting" with a automatic bleed valve at the top and fill coming into the side of the "T" would be the defacto standard.

Well here's the part I don't understand ... I meticulously laid out everything in CAD and bought 67 separate fittings .... then ya get started and nothing lines up as it does in 2D paper layouts. In some cases expecting bigger distances, I had to use two 90's for small offsets that i thought wuda gone to s stretch of tubing.

I bought sixteen 90 degree bends and am 5 short .... I'm short an extender, cupla other odds and ends and yet I have six C47's, three C68's (female version of C47) left over.


Questions:

1. Anyone know the watt rating of a molex cable to PSU ? Wanted to combine the two power leads (18 watts each = 36 total) onto a single cable

2. Suggested location in Ehthoo for spare Bitspower temp sensor .... wanna use for inside case temperature measurement.

3. Anyone know of an ambient air temperature sensor that, ideally, could be mounted in room and wirelessly send a signal to the Raven Six Eyes inside the box ? original idea was to mount another Bitspower sensor thru a hole in the case grille but with 10 fans blowing in, I cab't imagine ahole anywhere that isn't blastic hot air out.

Yes,

1. Remove the top filter.
2. Using some needle nose pliers, gently lift the tabs that hold the mesh down and in place. Be careful, and be gentle and slow. You don't wanna break those.
3. With the tabs all straight, gently remove the mesh from the plastic skeleton or whatever else you want to call it.
4. Now you are free to try out a new mesh, or what ever else design you have in mind. And ofcourse you can ditch the filter if thats what you want.

You my friend are very welcome. Remember you can always bleed the air from the top rad as well. That is another thing that I do.

Ya new Enthoo build.... using Bitspower matte black fittings perchance ? ... looks like I may have a few leftover....though the number is shrinking. Here's the pump plate in it's "place of honor"



Hopefully I can get the machining and inscription done tomorrow. "This pump mount donated by ....." it goes on for three more paragraphs smile.gif

Pic is a lil crooked, one if the legs slipped off the plate ..... decided to go with two short (2.5") pieces of flex tube to keep any pump vibrations from transmitting to the rigid loop.

I have a bleed there ..... two 30mm extensions take me up from the top rad port to just under the mesh filter ..... here's a pic of the bleeder one in place .... put 10" tube under the valve to allow for my lightning reflexes smile.gif

The other one I'm saving for last .... make sure I have enuff tube

-Mini-valve
-10" of tube
-C47
-Plug (remove)
-30 mm G-1/4 extension
-Rad



I'm hoping one will let air out and allow fluid in thru other..... still won't get air outta res tho ....

The funnel on top is a joke .... can't believe I bought that silly thing.... keeping it around to teach me humility ..... holds like half a shot.... that's what happens when ya make purchases thru pictures .... should be a "objects you see in this window may be smaller than they appear"....... (now wondering if a certain Congressman Anthony from NY did the same ) :0 !

Gonna send wife out tomorrow for a real funnel that fits in a C47 fitting.



Question / Poll / Place ya bets !

How many of you are thinking my wife is gonna get her dining room table back by Thanksgiving ?

Hi guys just a quick question. Wandering if anyone can help. I've ordered a Primochill 240mm Ctr Low profile reservoir. It is 248mm by 63mm width. Would it be feasible to mount on the provided bracket?

Thanks.

Bitspower G 1/4 Matte Black Aqua-Pipe I (BP-MBWP-C17) - ex-tub-714$7.50
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11864/ex-tub-714/Bitspower_G_14_Matte_Black_Aqua-Pipe_I_BP-MBWP-C17.html?tl=c97s169b145

I thought about that but it's hard to get a grip on it when it's inside the case. The fittings are flexible....I took it out already to test..... cant to that one filled tho smile.gif .... The scary part is .... nuthin comes down the pipe unless ya break the seal and if ya do, everything comes down the pipe.

Do you think it's something that would resolve itself once the pump starts running and the system gets full? I'm wondering if I should just get that replacement top that matches the bottom, even if it might not look as good. Also not sure if the Bitspower Aqua Pipe will fit the alternate top, whereas we know if fits the stock top with the single hole. How does that pipe even work? Does it screw in from the inside of the lid, and if so how do you attach a fitting to the top it (i.e. the top of the res)? It doesn't look like the kind of pipe that has an external portion that accepts a G1/4 fitting, so I'm kind of puzzled.

Other questions (sorry):
-I saw the post where you explained how your drain setup is laid out, but how does it actually work for draining? You've basically got one half of a quick disconnect at the end which holds the water in (until you add the other half), right? So do you have the other half of the compression fitting that you just plug in to open the thing and allow coolant to flow out?

-For that top rad fill/bleed setup, do those 30mm extensions and plug stay permanently installed, and if so, does the top mesh panel fit over the top of them when you put it back on? I would think they'd stick out too high.


Thanks
