@fast_fate Has been doing a lot of testing and has set up an impressive test rig. http://www.overclock.net/t/1501978/ocn-community-water-cooling-test-thread/0_50

Not sure if he can or would be interested in testing pump tops. I hope he will test your pump tops. If not there are a few others posting to that thread with quality testing set ups.

Cheers,

I have already been contacted by a few guys for testing. Will get samples out to them as soon as I have a bit of breathing room.

I'm thinking of to delete my order for FrozenQ since they can't deliver. And now I am looking for options, and I am mostly interested in Monsoon.

It has been days, and weeks now, when can we see them reach the stores? I am a bit in a hurry, my project is already delayed!

I have had nothing but the best experiences with monsoon fittings up to this point and am really looking forward to this new modular system. I have a build in progress and this is going to allow me the flexibility to fit the sff space and still look amazing. I cant wait!

Hmmmm may be replacing my fQ Res for this build.

One question though just because assumptions can come back to haunt you...

No Aluminum will ever be in contact with the coolant flow correct? mellowsmiley.gif

I assume that won't be an issue but...

In the case of your Mandrel kit. A change which I really would like to see is to the cutting jig. 2 holes countersunk into the tube channel would go a long way to stabilizing the jig and keeping cuts clean. I have the kit and the jigs are awesome. However the rest of the kit could be, well simply better. Not a fan of the benders rulers. My old eyes have a hard time picking out the correct marks. So I have shelved them, and simply line the correct mandrel for the bend with the fitting run I am working and that gives me a good understanding of where my bend needs to be. It is beneficial for short runs specifically. My MB outlet to CPU inlet was a real wench to work before I did that. Now that PPCs has the PETG in stock, I get to do it all over again. I guess what I would like to see in the future is the rules being aluminum instead of clear and a mid hash mark for the 5 increment. Also it does not take long to take the markings off one of these rules. Simply for no other reason than conserving time by keeping them connected with the connectors included and adjusting them. The wing nuts are an okay idea but I think a larger flat knob would be better. I realize that your intent was to keep the costs down for your customers while supplying them quality bending experience. But in my mind a "Pro Kit" should be just that. I love my kit, don't get me wrong, but I would gladly have paid more if the changes I've mentioned were already in the box.

I was so impressed with the quality of the mandrels, PPCS is gonna get me 4 more of the 360s and Monsoon will have at least one Representative(likely more lol) at PDXLan in November.

I will have White PETG hardline and Economy fittings in my build as well as a leetle surprise because the color fits my build. cool.gif

Everything is actually done and ready to go...the hold up is me getting the videos done and order forms for re-sellers out...so not long now.

No aluminum in contact with the water. The reservoir tubes are acrylic, the molded ends and couplers are reinforced nylon. Tension rods do not contact the water but are marine grade stainless anyway. All screws are marine grade stainless--again no contact anyway. The only aluminum parts are things like the mounts and motor tube cover--non contact parts.

On the measuring kit rules. As you mentioned the primary concern was keeping the price of the tool kits manageable--especially for tools most builders will use 2 or 3 times at most. There were other considerations in going with acrylic for the rules over aluminum or stainless however. Being clear helps line things up inside the case and because the rules are typically use once everything is installed space can be a bit tight--with a metal rule there is a chance to scratch surfaces inside the case--the one I was most worried about is a trace on a board. Lastly...some builds have weird layouts and might require you to intentionally break one of the rules to get everything lined up for your measurement--something I wouldn't be able to bring myself to do with a nicer more expensive steel rule but wouldn't hesitate to do with inexpensive plastic parts.

We could have etched the mm marks on instead of silk screening, (would have been a little less expensive too) but I also have old eyes as well and the laser etching is just too hard to see.

I also agree on knobs vs thumb nuts being easier...just not 5 x the cost easier. All of your comments are valid, (and appreciated)...end of the day I just had to balance quality with cost on very specialized "short use" tools.

Thank you for a dressing this BG.It's much appreciated.

Countersunk mounting points in the cutting jig? Good idea? Yay or Nay? smile.gif

I am sorry for asking to many stupid questions.

But I am kind a frustrated because of my delay in the project axesmiley.pngarrowheadsmiley.png


Can I except caseking.de have them this week? Absolute latest, my deadline for order is 2 September.

~Ceadder drink:

I knew there was one I forgot--sorry. It is the obvious choice of course and the original design had tabs on either end for screws but this made the part quite $$$ because of all the extra material--about 24mm of extra length--most of which ended up on the shop floor after being machined off. The next iteration had counter bore holes in the body of the miter box itself but we were unable to figure out a way to machine a bevel onto the bore hole where it intersects the half round of the "trough" the tube rests in--the geometry of that intersection gets quite interesting--especially when you consider all the cutting bits used are rotary. Not having a good bevel there may not seem like a big deal but it prevents scratching the tube.

Murphy's law dictates that the least careful customer who scratches the crap out of his tube will be the guy who posts in every single forum absolutely certain that it was the tools fault. I could show you pictures customers have sent in where they have driven the saw about 25 degrees out of the miter slot, cut the miter box clean in half, jammed and snapped the saw blade...stuff you just would not believe. They all think it is the tools fault and want a replacement. If I could be sure everyone watched the how to video and wrapped the tube in blue painters tape before putting it into the miter box as shown...different story.
