Today we got the pass through parts machined ready for assembly this weekend. Unfortunately with the CNC hunkered down in productivity mode there isn't too much visible acrylic decimation because of the foot which encompasses the tool. But without it Parvum HQ would slowly get buried in a sea of acrylic swarf.

You can just make out the tool drilling the screw holes to be tapped through the hole.

Tomorrow i'll be tapping all of the 1/4" BSP holes, making o-rings and sealing the part together then hopefully i'll get on to making some acrylic pipework. Tj will be around to help so hopefully it will be a productive weekend.

After spending the best part of our day working on APIS it's starting to really come together and the detailed and thorough planning seems to be paying off. Despite a few moments of tension an elegant solution was quickly found to most of the little issues that arose.

The first task was to tap the 1/4" BSP holes in the acrylic pass through components.

1.jpg

With that out of the way it was straight on to cutting and bonding o-rings from nitrile cord.

2.jpg

3.jpg

Then A LOT of screws.

4.jpg

5.jpg

After that I went on to bend some tubing...

6.jpg

...completing the pass-through assembly with all of the push in fittings as well as sleeving the D5 with a Corsair peripheral connector.

7.jpg

Now for one of the slightly more dramatic moments, unfortunately the reservoir was very slightly too tall for what we had planned. Easily rectified with a little lathe action.

8.jpg

9.jpg

10.jpg

It was only a subtle difference, facing ~2mm off the top and extending the counter-bore which encompasses the recessed stop plug.

12.jpg

But once in position it was perfect, perhaps even more elegant than if the res had been shorter. The sharp edge blending seamlessly into the case.

13.1.jpg

14.jpg

If that didn't give away how I chose to mount the reservoir then i'm sure this will. The top is inlaid into the accent of the case and the bottom sitting directly over a pair of push in fittings. The res simply drops through the roof and is trapped in position by the outer black layer of the roof.

15.jpg

I also bored out the recessed holes in the bottom part of the reservoir to accept normal fittings rather than EK's 8mm extenders.

16.jpg

17.jpg

18.jpg

We are extremely pleased with how the loop is taking shape and the contrast of materials and colours on show. Tomorrow we plan to fit the graphics cards, tube those, then assemble the pedestal section with radiators, fans, cables and tubing. The top of the case should simply drop over it and hopefully if there are no major problems we will see how this all looks with some coolant!

It's even more dangerous for me, I draw another case and then I need to do a build in it! I do want to keep this one now as well, it's making my L1.0 feel a little stock. Oh.. wait Lightning, must finish Lightning first...

Loop is coming! Very close now, another day and it shall be complete.

M.

Sure either way, if it's drawn and ready to tool path it's a lot more likely to happen. I'm a few projects deep right now but should find time... like... this year? ph34r-smiley.gif Get your ideas down in my inbox anyway thumb.gif

Another epic day of progress has been made on APIS, picking up from Saturdary me and TJ worked in parallel to complete the loop and paint the Corsair fan rings. I started by making the two tubes for the graphics cards. As the midplate is so substantial the tubing could be used to support the GPU's, so to alleviate any sag I laid the case on it's back to measure up giving a unique view of the pass-through plate from it's polished side.

1.jpg

2.jpg

To help all of the tubing push together, and come apart I used a small amount of silicone grease to lubricate the o-rings. Being water resistant it also helps things to seal and won't float off around the loop.

3.jpg

Meanwhile TJ got to work priming the fan rings he had prepped on Saturday.

4.jpg

The first GPU was installed, supported perfectly by the tubing.

5.jpg

A few yellow coats on the fan rings.

6.jpg

Installing the top card with the lower one so rigidly was very challenging, the easiest way I found was to remove the terminal block so it could be pushed down and then re-united with the card itself.

7.jpg

The next and final pieces of tubing to be cut were for the lower radiators. After neatly wiring all the fans into a PWM splitter PCB, I offered up the radiators and fans all assembled on the floor panel.

8.jpg

Much clear coat later the fans were looking great.

9.jpg

So then we brought out progress together, very striking and a great match for the case! They were still a little tacky at this point but we managed to very carefully piece them together.

10.jpg

11.jpg

Following that we removed the stickers from the mechanical drives keeping the back side looking just as clean and visually balanced.

12.jpg

Lovely glimpse of EK radiator and coolant channel, and this is 'just' under the PSU.

13.jpg

14.jpg

15.jpg

Fans looking great, TJ did an awesome job.

16.jpg

17.jpg

18.jpg

Such presence.

19.jpg

20.jpg

Very pleasing repetition with the tubing runs. So many tiny and precise details on this which aren't even visible.

21.jpg

22.jpg

23.jpg

24.jpg

Prepare for coolant pics, much yellow, soon!

Filling the loop was very easy and already it seems to have bled remarkably well, after a long 24 hours of running it really quietened down and bedded in. So I think i'm going to leave out attempting to write about this one and let the pictures talk!
