[(Re)BUILD LOG] Lian Li PC-TU 200 custom water cooled - Page 4

So.

As already mentioned I had some setback with that build. After the assembly and while gaming my system just shut down. Both Mainboard and CPU were dead, sso I was able to get the replacement covered by warranty. And the new part were built in BUT it happend again. This time the CPU survived and meanwhile I have the 3rd board biggrin.gif

Looking for the reson why the components died I suspected and inspected the sata cable I squeezed between the motherboard and the tray. And I think this was the root cause.

Seems like the pins of the board pierced the cable getting shorted by aluminium jacket (shield) of the sata cable
SO this was a painfull learning I did (third board I had to pay myself )





But there are also some good news on that, now I'm able to use the SM951 512GB, since the 2nd and 3rd board work well using the same mpcie combo board from the first motherboard.

Here are some pics of wath I did to prepare the system:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This was a ready to clean and flush action for the rads




also to clean the rads from soldering grease and oxides



This came out of the rad after the using the orange cilit bang mix (1 cilit bang orange to 3 water) for 5 minutes.

Being very happy that the cpu survived the short on the 2nd board I decided to delid it (got shock resistant at this point biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif)

And that's what I did:

I bought a vice


And I was really surprized how easily the vice only method worked


After some clean action ready to rock biggrin.gif



In order to improve the vrm colling on the board I went for Alphacool Eisschicht thermal pads with the thermal conductivity of 14 W/mK which is ~3-4 times higher them the stock EK thermal pad coming with the monoblock.




Regardless to 'shock resistance' I got last days I was excited to setup the 'bench' and to see if everything went well




AND wheee.gif the system powerd up and I was even able to run the stress test using AIDA64 without any radiator biggrin.gif
The starting temperature of the (5 liters) water was 22°C and as the following screenshot was done 36°C after 44 minuts of stress testing.



Overall the temps on the CPU dropped by ~10-15°C after delidding.



So now I can rethink the sata cable management in the case. Learning, learnings...

After a while I finally have an update to do (even the build is done since week or so biggrin.gif). I just had to test it excessively to make sure that this time nothing goes wrong.



But step by step:


I decided to do a normal SATA cable routing. So will not generate a short again.


And that's how it looks from the other side






Here you can also can see the one of total six thermocouples in this build. It gives me the temperature information on the front intake. The blue 'wire' .





I also bought sleeved cable for the GPU for the SilverStone PSU, which SilverStone makes for their PSUs. The reason here was mainly to have a better cable management.


Installation of the 240mm radiator along with the Aquacomputer filter:






And then the GPU



After those are in it's time for the front Rad + Res + Pump combo to be installed (and some fittings)

After cable management (or so) was finally done and the loop filled in and tested for a while...

That's the final result of this build (better pics to follow):




















And that's the room for bottom fans to breath

And that's how the temps are looking like:

After 30min idling / surfing / music




After 60 min idling / surfing / music





The temps during gaming (MGS 5 PP) will be posted later biggrin.gif

The black tubing looks nice with those fittings.

Also, I suggest sleeving the pump cables and get some all black SATA power cables biggrin.gif

That's the part for the next upgrade maybe or if I decide to make a cut out in the side paned for the window.

But at the moment the case does not have any windows. To keep the simple design of the case without any visible changes was the goal of this build.

And I am sub'bed.
Very nice work. I would love to see it with some glamour shots.
And how those SSD sata cables came out.

This I like.

Just saw you posted your build in the beastly matx-mitx thread and I have to say that I am impressed. I thought the initial setup was quite good already, but this is looking awesome!

Thanks.

Actually I'm still not happy with the nd product. I'm currently waiting for some quiter low profile fan to replace 2 silverstone ones. But cooling wise it's ways better then before ~ 10K drop on CPU and GPU.
