This build just keeps looking better and better, it is making me really excited to strip mine back down and install my loop. As soon as school is over for the summer I will get some pictures and a build log going... Though I don't really see the point as it will be no where near as detailed or intricate as this.
Keep up the good work! thumb.gif

Completed the final mods on the cage panel...looks much better. Tomorrow I'll clean up and install molding and take a pic.

Tonight was spent on the lower end of the rad/pump assembly. It's a really tight fit in there, but after heating the tubing in boiling water I was able to mold it into place without any additional fittings!

Front side shot:


Back side shot:


Was also able to finalize fill tube location. This is located on the top panel and will come down in front of the angled backplate next to the MB. This will be installed with a pressure valve to keep the system in check:



I'm currently hanging the tubes to straighten them out after boiling all of them. This will help keep the lines as clean and straight as possible...have them taped in place to keep the shape. The temp sensor will be installed between the two rads on top.



Hopefully i can get the cpu and gpu's completed and do a full system leak test! I had planned on hiding the return line almost completely, but after several hours working with the tubing and multiple fittings I came to the conclusion that it was not going to work. As such I ordered some acrylic tubing. I'll be doing a system refresh in the late summer to convert it all over to hard line and remove all those fittings and make the lines straight and clean. For now I need to get the system up and running.

The Chaos continues...today I was able to get the cpu plumbed up:



This was followed up the the mounting of the fill port:



And into the res:



Which was the followed by the gpu's:



All together it looks like this:



Front end looks like this:



I can just barely hear the pump wide open. This is significant as I am all about the silence, and adding the foam to the res and decoupling the pump on the other side with tubing really worked. The eloops are wonderful, top is running at 1400 and I can't even tell they are on. The front fans are bp3's which run at 1900 and all I hear is a "woosh" from the air moving.

So I'll let the entire system run overnight and tear it back down tomorrow to finish the wiring as I don't think I can reach the bottom connections with the plumbing in the way. Maybe I'll get lucky and be able to work on the wiring with the gpu's and tubing in the way, but I've got large hands and there is not much room left in the case...have to wait and see, but I already planned on tearing the front back down to finish.

I've been trying to put some time into this build, but life keeps getting in the way, Spring Cleaning, Mother's Day, work...sheesh!

Anyway, I was able to get most of the last wiring sleeved minus the cable management. First thing was to clean up the desk to work:



Re-install the gpu's and tubing for final fitting and make some visual checks:



Tomorrow I should be able to finish the final two gpu cables and prime with Distilled again and do a final leak check while I'm connecting the remaining cables and temp sensor...so close!

Doing final purge/clean with Vinegar and Distilled to make sure the system is totally clean.



All the lighting is glowing as I wanted, wish I could tone down the temp monitor but that's the only issue. One more SLI cable, install the front cage cover and I can start the OS load...if it still works!!!
