After having the rig up and running for a few weeks, I decided I didn't like the lack of lighting at the power supply. I ordered a Thermaltake Riing 140mm white fan and replaced the stock PSU fan with it. I ran the cable for the fan through the hole for the 24 pin ATX cable and it's connected to a standard molex power connection. I lost the energy efficiency of the stock fan controller on the Corsair HX750 where it would automatically turn off the fan unless it was under a load greater than, I believe, 50%. Unless I was gaming, the PSU fan would not spin up. A small increase in db's for a little aesthetics. I'm ok with that. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





I thought in doing the same, but just don't wanna lose my warranty and my RM850 wasn't exactly cheap to start with, do need to send a mail to corsair asking this but I'm pretty sure changing the fan would void my warranty.

I have a small question.

I started working on my first custom build. So i bougth a mono-block for my CPU.
On the paper from the mono block there was some advice that i should use the following fittings: EK-ACF

But when i see the fittings and the paper with it they say this is only to be used for soft-tubing. But im buidling some hard tubing custom build.

Is this a problem when i use this fittings? I know i need to heat the ends of the tubes to fit onto the fittings but others say its not good and even bad.

They say i need to use some alternative fittings called: EK-HDC

But the thing im worried about now is that these fittings comes with some O-ring, But doesnt the O-ring die after some time?

The ACF needs to be put in with some force but they close better or am i wrong?

Im abit confused wich of these 2 are better for my hardtube custom build.

Any advice is appreciated

Don't mean this negatively but did you do any research in water cooling before you bought the monoblock?

Dont worry your question is legit.

Yes i was bussy half year before deciding what i will buy.
The mono block is the one alot of people use, they use it for soft and hard tubing.
Personally i would have bougth different fittings but i let the info on the webshop control my decision.
Problem now is that i hear to much different opinions now. Some say that the fittings i bought are still good, just harder to install. Others say these fittings are not good.

Personal what i do in my personall work is mechanical repairing, so im working alot with o rings and i see that o rings breaks or die after some working time.

Let me say that i have mixed feelings for these fittings that i have here and i dont know if i should use them or buy the other fittings.

I just used the HDC fittings on my build , without issues . if you trim the ends of the hard tubing to about 45 Degrees and make sure the o rings are wet when you fit tubing you should avoid damage to the o rings . Yes , over time you will get problems with o rings , but with correct fitment these problems are greatly reduced .

Dang, love the look of this case and I was hoping P5 would be the case that will make me abandon my Switch 810 (REEEEAAALY wanted a wall mounted PC to get off my desk). Unfortunately, the PCI-e riser issue is really putting me off as I don't wan't to drop $170 on 3M riser cables, which is more than the price of the case itself, in order to use my cards in CFX; even if I go single card it still seems that the Tt riser cable is hit or miss at best. Plus it seems you're pretty much limited to a single radiator, so I would need to buy a monster of a 480 to replace my 420+240...heck of a downgrade. frown.gif

I guess I'll have to keep waiting for wall-mount cases to pick up some popularity. Dang shame, really loving the look of a lot of the builds on here. I'm going to go see if I can rig a VESA mount to my 810....

Well the ACF fittings are only for soft tubing and the HDC fittings are only for hard tubing, they can not be interchanged. The ACF fittings do not use o-rings because the soft tubing fits over a barb and then a collar screws on to secure the tube, but the HDC fittings do use o-rings because that is how it keeps hard tubing from leaking. Either fitting should fit the monoblock with no problem, you just have to decide if you want soft tubing for your loop or hard tubing. Soft tubing is easier and quicker to work with, but hard tubing has a visual appeal that soft tubing can't match. Concerning the o-rings, they do wear out eventually, but I have reused rigid fittings o-rings several times before they start leaking. If you chamfer the end of the hard tube then that helps the o-rings last longer, but you are correct, all o-rings wear out over time but o-rings are cheap to replace, the fittings themselves are not.

Leave room for magic

So im finally done with my loong term build and thought i would share it with you here. Thanks to Mlody, Bart, Mr_Armageddon and IT-Diva for good input by forums or messages.

Leave room for magic is based on the Thermaltake Core P5 but almost every detail is modified or constructed from the ground up. Focus have been to combine my interests of art and IT and the thought have been to not just build a high end gaming rig with good cooling but also to build something that can create it´s own space and magic in the room.

Components:
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming
Samsung 500gb 950 pro
CPU i7 6700k
Ram Vengeance 16gb 3200
Gpu gigabyte g1 GTX 1080
Alphacool Eisbecher reservoir + D5pump
250gb ocz
Extern HD station 2tb (backup/filflytt)
Tube monsoon 16mm
Vätska 2 sorter för blandning 
Barrow fittings (many)
8 st 120mm Riing rgb fans
Radiator 480mm AC UT-60
Psu-Corsair rm750x 750w
Ek block fullcover nickel acetal gpu andCPU
Noctua 80 mm fläkt

This rig has a buddy to acompany :Acer 27" predator ips-g-sync.
