From the Local economy I got some great stuff to match:

Two Large Sheets of UV Green acrylic, one 1/8" thick, and one 1/4" Thick! I'm thinking Mobo cover, under Mobo or something. But defiantly going to shield the high voltage area of the PSU with it since it will be exposed.
A Green Funnel for the Coolant
A container for the Pump, I will have to cut it open to put the pump in then reseal it. But its the perfect size and it has a good fill port.
Some Green accent Tape, not sure what im going to use it for yet
A matching Desk Organizer tray
And A nice Multi-cable holder/organizer for under the desk power and audio cables biggrin.gif

I also am defiantly going to strain and filter my coolant like I do with all my builds.... rolleyes.gif

I got the Pump installed in the container, I used QDC fittings for the inlet and outlet. I like this setup alot it works real good and makes filtering the coolant a breese. Also I got it all sealed up so its completely water tight, good for when you disconnect the desk to move it..... biggrin.gif The PSI Gauge works like a charm too! smile.gif

So im redesigning the WC setup. The Chipset, and two power supplies are going to be on a separate loop and pump. I ordered a small pump that I have used before for this loop, im also going to use the DD RES with this loop:

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2





The RAM and CPU are on One loop and the GPUs on the other:




I also ordered Koolance VL4 Extreme Flow QDC Fittings to upgrade the main pump and RES for better flow, I got enough for the Inlet, Outlet, and loop for straining.



I got two EVGA GTX 660 SC Cards from OCN User Marc79!

So Im putting the two SC Cards in SLI and the third GTX 660 Im keeping in a x8 slot for additional monitors.

Also, could you please explain why the coolant needs to be filtered?

Nice work so far.

Nice work so far.

A Y adapter would be better you are correct but the reason why I put a T-Adapter there is because I only have one Y adapter and Im out of funds for this build, may be something I replace later but for now its ok.

And if I did flip the T it would make the flow of the primary loop better which is ok since I plan to put more flow to the CPU, thats what the valves are for.

As far as filtering goes, I recommend anyone to at least filter your coolant the first time you put it into your build. Although it becomes regular maintenance for my builds for a few reasons. One is when you have a high pressure pump it tends to loosen debris from parts of the loop that wouldn't otherwise happen with a normal setup. Also when you use coolant that has dye in it it develops foam and some of the dye does tend to clot together which can restrict flow in water blocks, thats why if you ever look at photos of old used water blocks you see that blockage. Having a fine high flow strainer(Filter) in you loop will prevent clogs, reduce ugly foam, and above all allow you to remove debris before it gets into a more hard to get place. One other thing to point out though in my situation since I put the pump in a container that I cut, you know there are small bits of plastic from where I cut the container that I missed. thumb.gif

Currently working on the Radiators fan mount, I have created a fan box that attaches to the radiators that allows me to have 4x 120mm fans instead of two. I am using low CFM Fans right now but I did buy much better ones from OCN User Wermad. They are CoolerMaster R4-L2R-20AG-R2 Around 70CFM while still having that nice green lit look I want! biggrin.gif

I am making the fan enclosure mount out of some of the nice 1/8" acrylic I got the other day, and I do have a few cracks since I used a hand glass cutter to cut them instead of my Dremel(Didnt want to take it out) but overall im satisfied with it, looks pretty good so far.....

Oh yea one other thing I forgot to note, as I have found out by chance a Nintendo Wii Plastic base circular stand is the perfect template for cutting 120mm fan holes! biggrin.gif
