I'm just trying to exercise some self control, albeit way late in the game... ;c)

So, pedestal it is. I really appreciate your help Grim! I'm sure I'll be lurking around on your build, as I have much to learn from you. Thanks again.

glad to help!

self control...mm thinking.gif I used to have it too.. The great thing about CaseLabs is you can upgrade it later. That's how I did it too. I bought the pedestal after I discovered my crazy ideas wouldn't fit in the M8 alone. And only after much debate and tinkering I bought the 64mm top smile.gif

Now the case far exceeds the internal hardware..which I will mos def change in 3 years or so. A never ending story and I love it!

Now back to my build!
The new UT60 240 rad looks perfect! And I've cut all tubes to length. Next on the short list are the tiny brackets; paint them and install. And then I can finally finish the rig!
pix will follow soon...

Shoot, I'm out of demi water..still need to flush the new rads.. doh.gif

Update 16: Flushed frown.gif

Oh man, working as a manager and building a rig is tiresome tiredsmiley.gif
And although I work my butt off, money isn't flowing that fast..it's steady just not fast (enough).

HOWEVER, I did get my hands on demi water for flushing 2 'new' rads! The UT60 240 rad RMA was approved by Alphacool so I got a replacement! The other UT60 360 I had already.

Tomorrow I have another busy day; changing the website (CSS & HTML coding) and some boring stuff.. something with the bank, and chamber of commerce.
Hopefully I'll still have time to do the leak test! No, damn't, I'll make the time!

Some pix; I prepped the Magnum for the leak test, so some parts are missing.

Looking good man.. I really like that side mount rad.. Debating as to whether or not I should go that route.. So far I've ordered a pedestal.. I'm wondering if it would be worth having at least one rad in the mobo side? Or would it only be blowing hot air in there anyway? What is up top on your mobo side? are those just fans, or is there a rad up there, too? EDIT: Extended top, I'm guessing rad.. ;c)

thanx, bro!

yeah, there's a UT60 240 on the mobo side, blowing 'warm' air out the case thus saving on a filter wink.gif

What kind of pump / reservoir are you going for? I would've liked another 360 at the top mobo side but my Swiftech Maelstrom res/pump combo prevented that

Update 17: Leak test!

Finally, yes it worked but the flow isn't fast at full power thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
So I guess I need to upgrade the pump. I could go for the MCP35x2 or a completely different one.

Pix because it wouldn't be an update

Must be the amount of rads.
I believe the 35X is one of the strongest pumps out there.
I don't know how it would stack up to a dual D5. But I think I would go for either a dual loop or a dual 35X2 setup.

True, once I removed the bottom rad of the loop the flow was back to normal again. Considering I want to keep the Maelstrom reservoir, I'm going for the mcp35x2.

But money won't come until the 25th now, so I will prep it to the 'old' config. And then I can see what all the fuzz is of this new 8.1 patch

Update 18: to be continued..

temp picture of current unfinished case:

I still need to modify the bottom 360 side mount (Front with the drive bay attached). I also kept the bottom 360 rad with tubes in as it was too much a hassle to put in..but removing the bottom panel of the pedestal made it a lot more bearable.
The Xonar STX is amazing..software&driver not so much, but that sound drool.gif
BTW, W8.1 patch eh-smiley.gif

Yes sir! If you have the extra cash and dig the look. Go with two Koolance pmp-400 HS. Quick mod with the dremel. These hs cool a lot better than compared to the $12usd from Swiftech
