[Build Log] Polar Vortex - WC HTPC in Bitfenix Prodigy - Page 4

post #31 of 94
I run the same pump/reservoir combo in my case, I leave the pump on speed 2 and that's no vibration/sound at all. Also mounted with velcro.

As for the D5, you will probably have to use a gel/silicone pad below it since it gets very annoying if the vibrations resonate throughout your case. I've been combating this issue by having the pump/res combo suspended in midair by the tubing as the tubing itself will absorb most of the vibrations. However, I'm switching to an Apogee Drive II as I'd like to change up the aesthetics of my build since the D5+res just feels too chunky for me.

Subbed!

Thanks guys. I probably will want to run it a bit stronger than level 2 because of the Aurora, but I definitely plan to tune it to be pretty quiet. My Ice Pick build has a d5 runnin on level 5 and the case doesn't shake too much, so I am pretty confident that this will be ok. Worst case, I add in some foam or rubber to absorb some vibrations.

That is my hope, lol...Pair that with the black CPU block and CPU block hardware. I think the mount plate for the CPU Block I will also paint white

Some shipments came in today

Sleeving



5-1 PWM Fan Cable (will run all case fans from SYS_FAN header)



Circuit I designed to make the 230mm fan run off PWM



Aurora



Some adapters


This will be the drain port. Hole will go in the back, When it is time to drain, The case gets tilted on its back panel, stopper removed, and valve opened.

What sleeve is that. I've been trying to find a good replacement for MDPC-x. I knkow Lutro0 sells his own sleeve, but he doesn't carry the orange I need.

It is the Lutro0. FCPU carries it now and I got it from there. I do not remember if they had orange or not tho....

In crowbar, I used the BitFenix Alchemy Orange. It was pretty nice, I'd recommend
