I got some time to work again on "Old Copper". I don't want to mount the pump on the wall due to noise and reverberation and was not happy with the tubes routed this way with pump oriented sideways:



So I decided to make a decoupling for the pump to sit horizontally on the floor of the case using a Shoggy Sandwich cut in circle to fit the round pump on it as well as a rectangular cut for the wires and head on the D5 USB. Turns out great, for me at least:






with pump final position decided I can now drill the holes for the reservoir and finish all the tube routing. That should be a breeze. It will be enough to fire it up even if details like changing the PSU color and cables and working on the illumination (which it will be rgb leds on the farbwerk) would take a while...

I think it would look great if you removed the stickers from the PSU and painted it to match the radiators. smile.gif

good idea. Then the sticker could be black with copper letters thumb.gif

Old Copper is filled and pump is running smile.gif Tubing is done although they are not completely in old copper style (that would come latter). SSD installed and will start cables and installing windows. Pics to follow. biggrin.gif

Not finished by far but functional, very good performance and the most silent build I had so far. Really glad with this one.







Next steps:

paint psu cover in old copper style. Replace cables with custom made ones (Probably black with copper colors). Paint memory (maybe). Replace the remaining tubes with the Old Copper version.. Adjust the coolant color to a greenish/blueish copper disposal visual...Paint that drain valve in old copper style. Finish the rgb leds and enhance the illumination of cpu block and vga block.

Firstly ... looking good. Now, one Q and one observation ...

Q: How does the liquid flow through the GPU? Does the tubing cause a parallel run between the GPU and the CPU blocks? If so, doesn't most of it want to go straight though to the CPU block?

Q: Your 'old copper' link in your signature is broken

Fixed the sig. Thks thumb.gif

It is a parallel flow between cpu and gpu. So it goes from frontal rad to top rad, then top rad gpu where it gets divided going into GPU and CPU (and no, it does go all to cpu block) on the far back of the case side; return from cpu to join the flow coming from the GPU and then back to reservoir. Very efficient and temps are great (GPU stays at 27 and CPU is around 37 C). smile.gif

Really starting to come together. Nice work! I can't wait to see what's next. thumb.gif
