Thank you guys for the kind comments! managerman, my first try at acrylic bending didn't go too well; after seeing works like yours I had a fit of envy that pushed me to make mine better. biggrin.gif

Practice definitely makes perfect when it comes to acrylic bending. :-)

Finally received all the items for the modified loop (2nd pump and RAM wb), and the ColdZero lightbox. I must say I'm very impressed with the build quality of this ColdZero product, I would never be able to create my own lightbox this well, at least not in any sensible time frame.

While waiting for the new parts, I managed to finish all my cable sleeving. I gotta say, it was a major PITA especially with all the weird Corsair AX 860 cables and their stupid double wires. I'm seriously considering just buying sleeved cables for my next build and not develop carpal tunnel syndrome.



I also managed to sleeve the front panel cables:




The RAM sticks got equipped with EK Monarch heat sinks. They're very nice and elegant.


ColdZero box -- from Portugal. Took me about 10 minutes with an exacto knife to release all the stuff from the packaging -- a furious mess of plastic wrap and packing tape. biggrin.gif




The Corsair 900D side panel from ColdZero. Very nice! Y'all should get one:


The 900D long lightbox from ColdZero. It has three layers: bottom with LEDs along the wall, the mid section made out of a thick grid-scored acrylic to transmit the light from the LEDs, and a top layer that acts as a diffuser:




Powered light box without the top layer:


Checking the lightbox fit in the case:



I don't have much time right now to work on the loop, but I hope to at least get the measurements for the pass-through connector locations and figure out the mounting for the pumps.

Very nice!

Does that light box just sit in there or is it mounted?
post #19 of 31
did you make a pinout map for that AX860? I'm considering making my own custom cable for my AX860, but I can't find a pinout map.

Hi,

The lightbox has 4 "fillers", or pieces of acrylic (comes with both black and white) that fill open spaces between the lightbox and the case (corners and such). These fillers are attached to the lightbox, but only one filler is screwed to the case. So overall the lightbox is mostly resting on the case and only secured in one place, but it won't move as everything is very thigh fit.
