Closed up the panels last night... still not pleased with the 24-pin atx cable / sleeving. I'll probably open her up in a week or two and make adjustments.

Made a few changes to the loop, and also added a secondary res for filling the line!

So a big change or iteration if you will on my FT03-mini. I decided to migrate the internals of my mini to a standard Silverstone FT03. The change was for a few reasons, but among them I really desired more internal space to work with. The mini was a beautiful build, but what bothered most about my loop was how my Silverstone 450w was blowing very hot air directly onto my reservoir on top of the case. Temps were really pushing north on me as a result, and more importantly they were taking a long time to drop down to normal levels. I also wanted a second rad given I'm running blocks on my CPU/motherboard, GPU and memory. Much to still do on this build, particularly with the case panels including window cutouts and 2x 140mm circular cutouts for the left double 140 rad.

Thought I'd share!

Thanks gang smile.gif Lol, sure was/is LOTS in a small space! I ended up giving this build to my little brother as a gift smile.gif because he had an outdated Lenovo laptop from the 90s.

Anyhow smile.gif I'm in the middle of a CaseLabs Mercury S3 build now, which will be my permanent computer through 2015. I'll create a new log for it once the case arrives this weekend! thumb.gif
