looks like it's coming along nicely thumb.gif you'll be loving them EK blocks once it's fired up. With them and the rads, you'll have no trouble keeping a lid on your temps. Have you got any LED's planned for the CPU and pump blocks. Need to source some 3mm UV one's for mine.

I voted monitor in your pole. Not sure you've got much space left for speakers lol.

Yeah i'm really looking forward to seeing what kinda clocks i can get out of everything once i got it fired up.  

 

I really haven't decided about using LED's in my blocks yet. I already have a bunch of UV, Red, & White LED's in both 3mm & 5mm. On the one hand, all my blocks are copper and plexi and my build is gonna be all red & white. On the other hand, ALL my blocks are copper and plexi, so they match.....  I've actually thought about this for a while. Even considered changing some of the colors of my build. I've planned the white and red for too long tho. I'll be running my board on my little styrofoam pillow thingy while i'm rebuilding my case, so i'll have plenty of time to see if i like the blocks better with or without led's. 

 

Yeah, it's definitely looking like it's gonna be a monitor =)

Following IT Diva's Stretch Limo build is what gave me the idea for the 35x3.

 

I was only getting 0.8 GPM with my 35x cranked all the way up when it was only flowing through the Apogee Drive II it was connected to + a single rad. 0.8 as a max MIGHT be ok with me if it was my entire system hooked up, but i hadn't even added my mobo blocks, 3 GPU blocks, 2 RAM blocks, and other 3 rads yet. 

 

Plus i really like the way it looks :D

 


 

Since the whole fiasco with FCPU sending me the wrong Monsoon 6Pk, i've come to the conclusion that it makes much more sense to just order my ram blocks now and link up my whole motherboard area with acrylic while i'm running it outside of a chassis. I've been spending most of the weekend trying to put together a cpl carts on FCPU & PPC to make this happen. Just having trouble making a few decsions

 

After trying to make the crystal links i bought work with my mobo setup (which i just didn't have enough of the right fittings to make the lengths and angles), it feels like 16mm tubing would be too damn big to make my mobo area look decent. So, at least for my mobo setup, i'm gonna either go with 12mm (BP Fittings) or 1/2" (Primochill). 

 

Right now i'm leaning towards the BP C47's, C68's, & and their newer Female/Female angles that they released with their new acrylic fittings.

 

The new Enhanced Multi-Link fittings only come in black, silver, and shiny black right now though. I'm really trying to keep everything as white & red as i can, so i can only go with C47's. They have C68's in Red though, which are basically C47's with a female thread. 

 

I can't test my graphics cards til i make this order, so really trying to figure it out. 

 

The reason i was trying to stay with soft tubing for now, is cuz i wanted to spend my "working time" on my chassis. Need to figure out if i should get a bending kit just for my mobo area. I'm pretty sure i could make it all work with just a cutting/reamer kit, and some angles.

 

Anyway, i guess i'm just babbling and thinking out loud now...

That's what's going on right now though.

 

After i make my decision, it'll be my mobo all rigged up in acrylic, connected to QDC's, and have everything not attached to my mobo connected to my EK ZMT Tubing.

 

Edit: And then when i'm finished modding my chassis i'll be using acrylic to connect everything. I'm even considering going with 16mm tubing for everything not attached to my mobo. But all that will come later....

 

Update: 2nd 290x is back from RMA =)

Now i have 2 untested 290x's, a mobo with all my blocks connected, and no way to connect the ports

MUST......MAKE......DECISION.....

So i thought FCPU or Monsoon messed up the packaging on my last Red 6Pk of soft-tubing compressions. 

 

But i just got off the phone with FCPU, and apparently all the soft-tubing fittings from Monsoon no longer come with colored barbs. So my 6pk of Red has Red Compression Rings and Silver Barbs. FCPU just checked their stock, and they're all like that.

 

I just sent an email to Geno from Monsoon to see if he can clear this up for me....

 

Update: Good news is Monsoon has very quick and excellent email support/customer service

Bad news is....

 

"Matt--

All our barbs have been upgraded to antimicrobial silver--in both hard and soft lines.  They are still marine grade brass under the plating however."

Gotta say once again I'm lost with the direction you are taking your build haha, all this acrylic makes my head hurt I've never been any good with it other than straight forward windows with beveled edges on them. So whatever your plans are I hope you can pull them off without too much headache.

Good to hear your second 290X is back, you checked whether you lucked out with Hynix this time? And with the RMA'd card did they send you your third BF4 edition?

The new one i ordered that i received last week, i took the cooler off to check.....Elpida :mad:

The RMA'd one just came a little while ago so haven't checked yet.

 

And yes to your 2nd question, it would actually be my 4th BF4 though LOLLL

 


 

As far as the direction, right now i have my mobo tray on a big piece of stryofoam so i can work on my chassis freely. 

 

As you know, my plans were to hook everything up with soft-tubing until i was finished modding my case, and then upgrading to acrylic.

My logic for that is that you need to bend acrylic to fit exactly where you need it (obviously) and until i finish modding my case, i won't have the exact positioning for everything.

 

But when i noticed the other day that my Monsoon Compressions had silver barbs, i decided to try messing around with the C47's and Crystal Links i bought for my GPU's just so i could pump some water in my blocks and test my GPU on air.

 

When i was spending a cpl hours trying to come up with some combination of the fittings/rotaries/extenders i have to make it all work, i came to the conclusion that even though all my rads/res/pump need to have their exact positioning measured before i can route acrylic to them, my CPU, RAM, PCH, Mosfets, and GPU's will remain the same distance from each other no matter what.

 

So it make sense just to link that whole area up with acrylic since it's not gonna need to be altered. Also since i'm making my mobo tray so it can slide out the back of the chassis, i was gonna need to keep my mobo separated by QDC's anyway...

So right now i'm just planning out my mobo loop, and i'm gonna have QDC's between my mobo and everything else

Lol, tell me about it!!!

 

I gave away my 2nd copy and i already offered up my 3rd & 4th too. Just waiting to turn the cards on before i deal with the codes.

I really need to sort out my motherboard loop like now. I'm definitely gonna have to plan it out tonight so they can overnight it to me tomorrow. I was planning on doing that today, but it's too late for that =\
