Monolith. A Striker36 Case Mod Work Log.[now with more Acrylic curves!] - Page 24

so I got to my hanger and found a lake in its place....

under the tool box the water is nearly an inch deep...




I called the building manager and informed him of the situation and apparently in one of the other units the pipes froze and burst. couple that with the crazy rain we have had the last couple days here in southern NH the drainage system was overloaded and backed up into the hangers. thankfully we don't have toilets or any thing in the hangers of this could be a BIG problem. As it is now its just wet and I lost half a bag of speedy dry.... but I did go through and un plug everything that we leave at floor level.


then I got to work with all my power tools and lights plugged in up high


first side is cut


and the second.

then I cleaned up the cuts a bit on the bench sander and made sure the cut was strait and where I needed it.

after I got that and the flooding thing sorted out i went and got what I needed to get done finished, picked up lunch, and came home.



IT FITS! wheee.gif now I just have some minor fitting to do in the rear to clear a couple rivets and braces and then figure out exactly how long it will need to be so i can make the last cut to clear the radiator and fans to allow for adequate ventilation.

I may have just inadvertently made watercooling this beast a HUGE pain..... I have no idea how im going to feed the pump(s) now.... I might need to make a couple elbows and cut the left side of that floor WAY shorted than I wanted to or I could get another reservoir and run this pig dual loop.... i have no idea.... i guess ill figure this out when i have a bit of money to throw at it.

You could put the pump directly below the res, with a lead in from the res, and out from the pump. Make 2 holes in the acrylic and find a way to make it look purdy.

that bold part is the hard part. but I got a couple ideas wile going through some other build threads and the WC section.

- cut about 4 inches off the left side of the floor (flush with the edge of the reservoir clips), use 2 90* fittings adn make a couple bends to meet the pump(s) on the true floor. and run the return down the left side from the radiator.

-or do something similar to the above with a bit of a Snef type solution with two reservoirs.


i have a bunch of ideas to work with right now since I stopped worrying about it and started trying to figure out how to fix it.
