I chopped the LED strip, folded it, and shoved it into the CCFL tube. This isn't at all refined, and the animations have to be adjusted a bit. (In particular, the "fire" animation colors seem too white/pink.) Here's some quick and dirty video:


One interesting thing can be seen in the reflection of the glass in the "fire" animation: I'm using a MMRS cap that has three top ports, so I can't really center the CCFL tube. Instead, I'm using the hole furthest away from the camera, and LED's aren't quite diffused enough in the rear for my anal retentiveness. (They can be seen in the reflection.) This is a case where the white CCFL tube might help...

@BoxGods, a quick "support" question for you (unrelated to my LED project.)

I've attached a quick photo of my reservoir... this is a 100mm clear frosted. If you look closely, near the top of the res (circled in red), there's some discoloration of the res. It ALMOST appears as if the upper (outer) portion of the res is wet (and if I wipe the outside with a damp cloth, the discoloration appears to go away until it dries.) It's not wet (on the outside.)

(Perhaps "discoloration" isn't the proper term, but I really don't know what to call it. The res is still frosted in the area, it just looks... different.)

The res is completely full with distilled water treated with primochill "liquid utopia." (If it wasn't completely full, that line would be straight, not curved like that.) I flushed and filled it about a week ago, and there are no signs of any water problems anywhere else in the loop. That discoloration line kind meanders it's way all the around the upper portion of the res (though it's damn hard to photograph, it's much more prominent with the naked eye.) I first noticed it about 4 days ago.

Before installing the res, I rinsed with tap water, wiped it out, rinsed again with tap water, and then rinsed twice with straight distilled water. (Distilled water is cheap, so I tend to err on the side of excess when cleaning water cooling stuff.) There are no leaks.

I've tried wiping the outside of the res with a microfiber cloth and distilled water to "clean off" the discoloration, but as soon the water evaporates, the discoloration is still there.

Once you know where to look, you can also see this discoloration on the two videos I posted in the message before this one.

The overall kit is.. EK CPU and GPU blocks, hwlabs radiators, EK soft tubing, fittings from most every water cooling company, an EK D5 PWM topped with a Monsoon top and Monsoon reservoir.

Is this something I should be concerned about, or some type of breaking in thing that will either fade away or smooth out?

... crap... and I just discovered that the CCFL tube (the clear lens) that I was using for the LEDs leaks. I pulled the tube out for the night (so I can put the cover back on my machine...) and the inside of the tube was covered with moisture. frown.gif

I did a quick "blow" test (stick the end of the tube in a cup of water and blow into the tube), and there is NOT a good seal between the plastic plug and the plastic tube. Just my luck... Well, I guess this adventure will have to be on hold for a few days while I order another CCFL (and return this one.)

I am not sure as plastic is a fairly decent insulator. Maybe.

Might be an issue caused by the heat from all the LED's...be careful.

That discoloration is from oil in the O-ring wicking into the frosted surface. You need to wash the reservoir tube in hot soapy water--like dish soap NOT a glass cleaner. I would also wash the O-rings. You don't need a scrub brush or anything like that, just a good washing in hot soapy water in the sink. Let the tube air dry and the discoloration will be gone.

hrm. What kind of glue/adhesive is used to attach the bottom "plug" in the CCFL lens tube? (For reference, I'm referring to the "plug" on the left side of the image on post the post here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1567067/new-products-from-monsoon-cooling/4420#post_26348317) It's hard to imagine that the adhesive broke down when the outer part of the joint was no higher than my water temp (max of 35C before my fans start going nuts) even if the inside temp reached as high as 50C. (Then again, I'm not a chemical engineer, so I could easily be wrong.)

If the adhesive is commonly available, I could probably find it's heat tolerances online somewhere...

(To be completely honest, though, I kind of doubt it'd be the heat... we're talking temps that are "warm to the touch", and not "ouch! that burns!" I suspect I just managed to get unlucky and had one that was leaking to begin with. It happens.)

Noo...... I don't want to have to take the reservoir apart again. I LOVE the unit, but to clean that res tube means I have to get the thing out of my case, take the pump out of it, undo all the tension rods, etc. Oh, and I'd have to drain the loop as well. Then putting everything back together and the pain of refilling the loop (and getting the air out...)

Would that oil cause any problems in my loop if left for a few weeks? Perhaps by then I'll have talked my wife into letting spend even more money on monsoon stuff (and buy a 200mm res, 200mm tension rods, 200mm U/V CCFL for the tube, and some of the longer side mounting things.)

So, the APA102-2020 LED's came in. They are exactly as described, which I'm finding hard to believe. Handling this 1 meter strip is like handling a 1 meter long strand of spaghetti. It's REALLY thin (4mm.) However, I'm having some issues with it that might impact people:

1. Most LED strips of 1 meter length are actually 2 1/2 meter lengths soldered together. In the case of these super thin ones, it's actually 3 1/3 meter lengths soldered together (each consisting of 66 LEDs.)

2. Related to #1, unlike most LED strips I've encountered, this really thin one doesn't have solder points every 1 or 2 LEDS. It only has solder points every 66 LEDs.




Gary

Well, that's annoyingly frustrating. I looked around and saw some that have solder points between each led, but they are too wide. I didn't realize it, but the APA102 are those fancy "POV" led strips. Adafruit sells them as Dotstar (their skinny versions are 5.5mm wide so probably won't work). I've been eyeballing them for a few months now, hoping to see them in RGBW form. Once I see them, I'll swap over to them because they don't require specific timings like WS2812B do. You can control them with a Pi. I'd love to do that and then write up an Android app to control them over the wifis or even make Alexa controls for them.

The end caps are not bonded on with adhesive. they are USW welded on so the tube and cap become one monolithic part.

The oil / lubricant is the same stuff that is on every O ring you have ever bought. It protects them from drying out while they sit on the shelf in some ware house. The only reason you notice it on the frosted reservoir tube is because the surface satin finish causes some weird capillary action and it "migrates" for want of a better word.

Hmm... Something must have gone wrong with the unit I had. I can't take any better photos of it anymore (as it's been returned), but it very much felt like two separate pieces glued together. I was able to run my fingernail through the joint. The "leak" was definitely in that joint.

(I'm not criticizing you or your process... I'm just saying that one might have slipped past the normal process. No harm was done in this case, and I don't mind the slight inconvenience if it helps to make an awesome product better.)

If you want to try and watch for the return to check the issue, let me know and I'll PM you the original order info (which, I'm hoping, you'd be able to use to get the seller to flag the return for your attention.)

Okay, then I don't need to be concerned about it at all. It might even go away on its own in a few weeks (assuming I don't tear it down for a bigger res before then.) Next time, I'll carefully wash the washers in addition to the acrylic.

(in reference to your MMRS videos): I wonder if I shoved some cat hair up near the o-ring if it'd absorb the oil. tongue.gif
