Hi All

I am back with updates



Oke first of i started to disassemble the water pump.. And it look pretty red on the inside..

IMG_0757_zps7ec4397b.jpg

So i cleaned it with alcohol en tested it..
And found out one pump wasn't working..

Also figured out why.

It was burned to hell.
IMG_0811_zps8a69f06b.jpg

So just to be save i ordered two new ones of the Internet trough ebay payed 25€ each for Delfhi pumps witch had a weird connector.

IMG_0805_zpsacf62864.jpg

IMG_0807_zpsab892d8b.jpg

So i removed these and replaced them with a molex
I did sleeved them and soldered them to the 12v

IMG_0838_zps43db69fb.jpg

IMG_0839_zps97b051db.jpg

IMG_0840_zps40d308e9.jpg





Now its time for the motherboard.

This is how i started
IMG_0785_zps4137502b.jpg


Removed the copper parts..

These where really hard to remove...
It felt like it was glued to it, had to pull really hard before it came off.

IMG_0788_zpsdf8b164e.jpg


Parts removed.
IMG_0789_zps3391cc4e.jpg


Cleaned and ready for water-block
With new adhesive and thermal-pad.
IMG_0793_zpse9560b9a.jpg

IMG_0792_zps25997f5f.jpg




But first i had to fix the Thermaltake CPU water-block
It had some ugly fittings and a wrong tread to add compressed fitting.

IMG_0766_zpsafef8ed1.jpg

IMG_0767_zps96258955.jpg


Ordered a G1/4 tap off the Internet drilled the holes to 11.5mm.
And tap them

IMG_0768_zpsd37135a8.jpg


After this tested them if there where nice and strait.
IMG_0770_zps9dc006ba.jpg

IMG_0771_zps48cb7421.jpg

IMG_0772_zps1679c7dd.jpg




Now its all done.

Time to mount them to the motherboard.
IMG_0794_zps30d96cae.jpg

Looking really nice if i may say so.. smile.gif



The next day i tried to place the the watercooled videocards. and found out that it would not fit.
They where hitting the bottom waterblock fittings.

So i had to fix it..

Tried to buy a full waterblock for the Asus Rampage Formula x48..
But could not find them or buy them anywhere.

So i had to make a custom one..

I took the original copper heat-sink and had these machined.
So that i only needed the top waterblock.

IMG_0861_zpse94df011.jpg

IMG_0862_zps205604df.jpg

IMG_0863_zpseee98b54.jpg

IMG_0864_zps7e157ec8.jpg

When i tried to test fit them i found out that the top part of my custom block. (Gray alu one) had to be removed
Because of the VRM waterblocks.



So i removed the heat-pipe witch it was attached to.
And afterwards i glued it back to getter.
IMG_0865_zps0c8633b5.jpg

IMG_0867_zps1828f298.jpg

IMG_0868_zpsb13490f7.jpg



Placed on the motherboard.

IMG_0870_zpsb7aaf678.jpg

IMG_0871_zpsb2ff5ee6.jpg

IMG_0872_zps9edd862f.jpg



And taada..

The videocards fit.

Wow this is some really amazing work you have going here! I'm surprised no one else has picked up on this! I love all of the custom machined parts that you've whipped up for all this older hardware. Keep the updates on this products coming! Also, you should consider yourself lucky to find such a cool second-hand case! An inverted-ATX TJ07 with a custom front plate and rad mounts? Nice find! thumb.gif

Thanks man,

The case came with a lot of parts,
(case, two radiator, rad mounts, fans, pump, pump cover, front plate, reservoir)
and that only 100€ excluding shipment.

Only one of the pumps was burned,
But ordered new ones that fixed the problem.


The last days i did some more work to it.

Photo's will come soon.
