So after I let it run for a few minuets I caught a leak out of the corner of my eye. It was tricky too. I was dripping onto the 24 pin cord and the sleaving was soaking it all up. Ya more paper towels next time. Im learning. So ya all back a part it had to come. :banghead:

So ya had to pressure test the radiator. Make sure it wasnt the fitting. These Fesser Rads are fairly neat. They have aluminum that cover the out side and provides mounts for the fans and such.
However this made leak finding a tad difficult. So off they all came.

So it look as though the end cap is the culprit.



So I am working with the place I bough them from to come to a resoltuion

Mean time the computer is running on one of my old smaller rad from my other build.

In the end I guess it will allow me to start over in a sense. I dont like the white hose so it will become red. I also dont care for the routing much.
I need to google around and see what is best. From what I have read the best is pump/ECU/rad/GPU/rad/res
anyhoo thats all for meow:thumb:
post #14 of 24
doesnt matter about the routing except for ONE THING: res feeds the pump, otherwise the pump goes dry and burns up !


and try another rad besides Feser if it doesn't hurt your pocket too much. Feser means lesser quality from what I've read about on OCN.

Alphacool XT and EK rads are popular.

The first build I did had alpha ones I had two thick ones and a 30mm one. They seemed to work pretty good. The Fesser layout seemed interesting to me. It wouldnt hurt my pocket book much to go a different route no.
I may see if I can get an exchange for the bad one and buy something different. The Aquacomputer rads look to be similar but offer better hook ups.

Well my poor computer has sat like this long enough.

SO:

I got some parts in today. Taking this a new direction. I got the dual circuit model. I figure that will give me a few more options. I am maybe thinking I may give the fan controller its own pump and stuff with the extra circuit. I also went for some red tubing as I do not like the white. Its also cheap and flimsy kinks easy. Also need to source some fittings.

Now to see what fits and what does not..........

Finaly made some progress things turned out pretty good.
The auqacomputer rad is HUGE!
I think a helpful thing would be a few more mounting options on the drop in mount.

Here you can see it is up against the flex bay mount its a snug fit to say the least.
It dose look pretty good though.

Well its up and running.
Need to put in a few more fans and figure out the case fans. But it runs.
I also need to sort some wiring out and clean it up
As mentioned before maybe I need to learn how to sleeve and cut my own wires.
I may even be able to put the cover on it LOLZ

Well I am calling done for now. However like most things I feel its a work in progress.
I have some phobia fans Id like to put in however temps seem to be okay without them....
I do need to get a better camera than the one on my phone though.... It gets the job done but ya.....
So the wires are still a bit of a mess. Ill clean them up later.....
I do want to learn to sleeve my own stuff.
However it looks pretty good with the covers on it
