[Build Log] Midnight Express - Mercury S8 - Page 20

post #191 of 297

More fail. The most complex bend broke while I was polishing it. It's not often I get mad, but this definitely made me mad mad.gif



Just spent three hours making a new one, but it's not good enough. Will try again tomorrow. Glad I bought a lot of the tubing, I wanted to have plenty since I had to have it imported. So I got that going for me.

Way bummer on the leak!  Hope everything is ok after it dries out.

 

How about air checking for leaks first?

 

Have you seen this thread?

I have, thanks. I did intend to build one but never bothered. I suppose I should, no point in tempting fate twice.

Just found your build and it's looking great. Sorry for the stint of bad luck you are having at the moment. Hope you get it sorted out and I subbed to see the end. Good luck with the components. I've had that happen to me and it was terrifying to say the least. I was lucky and everything worked after letting it dry for a couple of days.

Thanks for the positive vibes guys. Hopefully some positive progress in the next week, I'm in the process of getting parts to build a pressure tester and will be working on the bends that need redoing in the meantime thumb.gif

They are beautiful, I have 2x galax gtx 970 hof that I thought I'd never get to put underwater. However seeing this gives me new hope lol, I've asked around on here before (in the gtx club owner thread) and got told they simply just don't make them, so I was faced with having to purchase 2x more 970s. But wow, all I can say is amazing, I'm definitely subbing this, this is a truly well thought out build. How do you like your 980s? I'm really fond of the galax brand.. have you seen the ssds they made? Looks like a nice blank canvas for some custom work..

Welcome!

I haven't had much opportunity to use the cards, except on air. One of them has a high asic score and the other is a bit lower. I'm really looking forward to testing them once the loops is done. Bitspower have brought out blocks for the 980/970 HOF, although nobody has posted an in-person pic of them yet.

I did see their new SSD, I thought exactly the same thing - perfect canvas for some custom lasering/vinyl work thumb.gif

In terms of updates, I'm waiting on the final components for my leak tester and I have been having a real fun time trying to redo the long bend that I broke last week. Being a perfectionist is really killing me right now.
