Nice man! Where can we read the log?
Anywho, it's time to break the news: the build is finally completed
Right now it's leak testing (and getting rid of a zillion micro-bubbles) but it sure does look promising.
Worked pretty much all week on it to get it finished, spend two days soldering all the wires, had to paint the rads and had a real struggle to get everything to fit again.
Especially since this case has no cablemanagement-features of sorts, at a time it looked like this:
But that black dampening material sure does it's job at least hiding the 20-some wires going up in front (mostly from the front-panel)
Did have quite a struggle with the kryographics, had it opened up to clean it out, but couldn't get it to seal again. At the edge near the ports it just wouldn't close up. After lots of swearing, gently cleaning the o-ring and making sure the groove was clean it still wouldn't seal. So I figured, what the hell, and bent the metal retaining plate so it would put more pressure right between the two bolts, which actually worked
It didn't really get up to what you'd expect, but I figured .5 bar is plenty, no way my pumps are pushing 5m head pressure at max in this unrestrictive loop, let alone in 'quiet mode'. Will definitely do an extensive session of leak-testing though, just to be sure
The red-back ATX-cable is just there temporarily (it's pumping 12v into the ATX-cable) and I see I still have to plug in my GPU and connect the heatpipe for the backplate, but other than that it's pretty much done.
Sorry for the crappy pics, don't have anything else but my good-ol' 4S
