[Build Log] Hinode - Enthoo Primo (pic heavy) - Page 2

Update:

UPS and DPD crossed my plans for the weekend...again.

They don´t deliver standart shippings on saturday. So nothing to do for now.

Funny part, I paid the 2 euros extra for the package to be shipped by UPS, because I was hoping it will be faster that way.
The normal post shippings arrived today, but no UPS frown.gif

Ok, I thought why sit around and dwell in your misery?!

Instead, I went flushing my rads.

I startet with the UT60 480mm
Radiator flushing

It was messy for my taste, here are some pics showing the progress, with the last one after 3 flushes.
UT60 after the first round
UT60 after the 2nd round
UT60 after the 3rd round


The XT45 480mm was way better.
Nearly nothing came out, I even reboiled the water and tried again because I couldn´t believe it after the mess the UT60 left behind
XT45 at the end, way better


I might install the UT60 in the bottom later.

That there ist atleast some progress for the weekend

So I mounted the Fans on the UT60 and installed it in the bottom.

UT60 480mm + NB eLoops 12-2

I went for the UT60 because together with the 25mm fans it alignes perfectly with the upper cabel outlet. So push only
And because I want to use that for my tubing that comes form the pump in the back to the bottom radiator it should look clean and straight...hopefully.
installed in the case, push only. The reason is, that with the 60mm rad it alinges perfectly with the upper outlet for the cables, where my tubing will exit from the pump to the rad




I used the M3 5mm screws, that are included with the case, they are labled for SSD/ODD but there are plenty and I had a full bag left from some other case.

I´m thinking about pushing the rad a little bit more to the front of the case, that it will aligne better with the reservoir for a straight tube.

I also added the small reservoir that will be the 2nd in the loop. The hight is not decided but it won´t be much higher I think. Maybe a couple of cm.
testet the positioning of the small 2nd reservoir, might put it a bit higher and the rad a tiny bit more to the front


Yeah that´s it for today and most likely for the weekend. But on monday all my missing orders will arrive and the interesting part is going to start

Hiho,

I´m still moving kinda slowly. There are certain parts missing and I can´t really progress without them. Otherwise I would have to take it apart again.

I´m missing an extension for my 90° adapter to reach above the fans on the bottom radiator, and I´m waiting for the internal tubes to add them to my ryreservoirs via multiport top. That they are viable as outlet and make also a better inlet.

But I managed to do atleast some work.


Let´s start with the top radiator. I wanted to use it in a push/pull config but then I heard, that the NB eloops should be terrible for pull because of their aerodynamic and them not being made for pull.

So I started some testing with the best acustic sensor that is available....my ears. I have to live with the noise so I´d rather not trust some statements smile.gif

I actually made some vids, but they are horrbile regarding the soundquality. There is a constant wooshing noise from the mic on them so they aren´t anywhere near good for showing the noiselevel of the fans.

I tested them in only push, only pull, push/pull and against Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition in push only,pull only and in push/pull with a NB eloop.

There definitely is a noise that appears when using the eloops in p/p that isn´t there at all when only using 1 fan in push and is only minor when using only 1 fan in pull.
The noise gets a little better when using the washers from the NB fans as spacers.


Fan noise tests


I also tried building myself a shroud like suggested but it actually made the noise and the whole soundlevel worse. It´s like a tunnel that amplifies ist.

Shroud making

Against the Corsair, both at 1200 RPM, the eloops are far more quiet. The corsair have a much louder windy noise and atleast mine also kinda rattl in the engine.

Overall the eloops are still more quiet than the corsair even with the noise produced by push/pull.

Add that to the fact, that I´m going to run the fans at around 900RPM where you can only barely hear the noise, or even lower, and I decided to go with p/p with the eloops.

TBC later

Because I realized it will be very hard to check out how the loop works out with nothing in the case, and that I need to install the components for the placing of the reservoirs I decided to take apart my system and start setting thinks up.

Here a picture of some of the parts


And the fittings





First came the grafic card. They must have dumped a whole truckload of TMI on that think, because the TMI was everywhere and it was a hell to clean up





The assembly of the EK water block and the backplate was rather straight forward. On the manual of the backplate they mixed up 2 of the screws that should be removed but everything went smooth.

WHAT A BEAUTY


Next came the CPU, I changed the Jet for the one optimized for socket 1150



Quick picture of the pump, EK D5 Vario mit X-Top
The pump EK D5 Vario incl X-Top


I had to drill a new whole in the mounting plate included with the Enthoo Primo, cause the original one were to far apart


And installed the motherboard together with CPU and GPU in the case


For the pull fans of the top radiator I had to cut myself some screws. There is only 1 set of 25mm and 1 set of 35mm delivered with each radiator.
And while the 25mm, besides alle in use, were too short, the 35mm are too long



Like I said at the beginning I can´t finish the loop because I need a few parts, but I couldn´t resist and put together 2 parts of the loop.
To tighten those compression fittings is a mess, but hot water helps






Because the fittings are kind a hard to screw together I don´t want to put in the reservoirs, because I would have to take the tops off again to fit in the internal tubes.
So It will be few days before I get the chance to finish the loop.

I already have nightmares about doing the cabel management, so not sad about delaying that part.

Have a nice day everybody

The loop is finaly taking shape.

The flow meter arrived today....well actually it arrived 3 days ago already. We live next to a workshop and they were on holiday the last few days. And we signed for a delivery of tires for them. What we didn´t realise was, that they stuffed my package inside the tires and didn´t tell us about it.....

So I installed the flow meter in the side window today, together with the main reservoir and connected them to the loop.
Had to do some dremel work on the case to get the tubes there
Flow meter installed
tubing to the pump in the back
Close up flow meter

The flow meter is actually glued to the case, thought it to be the cleanest and easiest way, and it looks good.

I drilled a hole to the right later to get the LED through.

After that I connected the pump to the bottom radiator

Bottom radiator connected to the pump

I added some spacers between the tubes on the flow meter to get them nicely aligned
That´s it already for today.

The next post will hopefully be about hte finished loop!

I need your help.

I´m going to add my SSD to the front and I´m not sure which looks better.




The red one, which kinda fits the theme

Or the gray one with the chrome edges.

I kinda like the gray one. It looks more elegant and fits the black nickel fittings better.

I´m also thinking about adding 2 to the front, but it will get a little problematic with the cable.

What do you think, let me know please!

Pictures of the finished build.

I definitely have to work on the lighting. Need to collect some ideas first. That part is not my strong side tongue.gif


Will add a few comments later. I´m running a bit low on tim right now smile.gif











Added another display to the front panel for better visibility.
The sensor is connected to another part of the loop.





I also delidded the CPU, brought a 18°C drop in temps for me thumb.gif

I initally planned on using the heardrier and vice method because I was a little scared of the hammer and vice method.

But I bought some cheap Core Duos from Ebay to pratice first (3€ a piece). And found the hammer and vice method to be reallly really easy and the hairdryer method not so.
