Update 6: Installation
Mobo tray and mobo removed. PSU is in there nice and snug.
Stealth SSD Mount removed, CPU waterblock backplate.
EK Supremacy waterblock installed.
Installation of the EK-FC770 GTX waterblock installed.
Installation was uneventful except for the EVGA backplate.
The screws that came with the EVGA backplate are too small to screw into the EK waterblock and the screws that came with the EK waterblock was too short to screw the EVGA backplate. Fortunately, I was able to scrounge up some extra screws that fit perfectly.
Time to flush & prime the radiator.
Rad crud from the 1st flush!
Priming of the radiator with the filter installed after 5 flushings with near boiling water.
Crud after 24hrs. I'd say the filter did its job.
Reservoir mount installed while priming the radiator.
Draining the loop. Next time I'll add in a drain valve to make the drain easier.
Installation of the Silverstone fan filters.
Filters not noticeable behind the front panel grill.
Reservoir installed. It's starting to get REAAALLLY cramped in here!
The camera angle doesn't show it properly but the reservoir actually extends to about half of the 24pin plugin.
Corsair Dominator Platinums with the Light Bars installed.
The 90 degree fittings won't work as the Dominator Platinums are very tall and I would rather not use any extenders unless it was absolutely necessary.
Going to have to go with straight Bitspower C47 fittings.
Time for a test fit of the EK 10/12mm acrylic tubes with Bitspower C47 adapter fittings.
Measure... Measure... and then re-Measure.
The Bitspower C47 fittings have a depth of 8mm so I need 101mm (plus an extra 1-2mm for cushion) length of tube.
Marked and scored the cut line.
Fits like a glove. First acrylic line for this build & drain valve installed.
Played around with a number of different placements for the drain valve and this was the only spot that would fit without having a big impact to the aesthetics. Had to use a slim stop plug else the drain valve would not have fit.
All components installed.
GPU and the approximate location of the pump.
The tricky part will be routing the IN and OUT channel acrylic tubes through the small 40mm x 65mm opening.
