It seems like I was just in time too since that is what is currently being talked about right now (other then P5 builds of course biggrin.gif). I am using a free app called Spacedesk (remote display) to extend my desktop to my tablet. you can get it here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ph.spacedesk.beta&hl=en its got the most positive reviews out of all the various ones out there, and its for free. Not sure if 'iDisplay' or all the other paid apps work better. but for now I am content with Spacedesk.

i paid 4$ for idisplay and i dont like it much cuz i cannot make my scrren looks landscape. well i will try that one you said. thanks

It seems Spacedesk only does landscape (for tablets anyway). That really sucks that idisplay does not do landscape for a paid app. see if you can get a refund. Spacedesk is still in beta, its not perfect but it functions as it should and easy to install. Let me know how you make out with it.

started with some 600 grit. because that's what i found in the garage. So far so good, but not opaque enough. I'm going to go to something a little rougher and see what happens.

A very good idea. Should it go well, I might steal it.

You mean 60 Grit right? not 600. I don't even think 600 grit even exists let alone be something lying around in one's garage. I like where this idea of yours is headed. if you keep at it with the 60 you should get the desired look you want. maybe press harder. btw are you sanding manually by hand or with a palm sander?

Well, you don't know much about diy then. 600 grit is definitely very common and easy to buy, it happens that it can be found in my storage too(along with 800,1000,1200 and 2000 grit).
600 works well on plexi, it's not to rough so scratches are not too strong and gives nice frosted look. I wouldn't go any lower as it's too rough

Well I stand corrected, thank you for enlightening me. But you can leave out the insult next time. DIY is collectively exhaustive, not mutually exclusive. We all have our different skill sets and expertise on various subjects.

Hi guys!

I've been following this thread since the beginning and I wanted to post my rig and share some impressions with you, as is not finished and honestly I think I might made some mistakes.

I am not looking for ultra high performant water cooling, just followed the "shortest path" principle and tried to make the loop clean for other components. I'm currently running loop tests to ensure there's no leaks so I can change loop parts if necessary.

As always some pictures will explain better than me:

You'll notice that there is air everywhere, system has been running for many hours and air seems not to purge. Also filling the system is a pain (didn't tried to empty it yet) due to amount of air inside the radiator.

My question is about how could I purge the system and/or upgrade the loop for better filling + draining + purge?

Keep in mind I have a DDC 1T pump and GTS SR2 480 radiator (6 ports).

Regards,
Akhena 5k

Regards,

After you fill your loop and leak test, your next step is to bleed the loop(to get the air bubbles out).
To do this, you need to tilt/rock your PC case in every direction. Front to back and side to side. Don't be shy here as it may be necessary to go almost 90 degree tilt or more to get all the air out. No need to be gentle, if your loop is installed properly, then it can take the rocking you will be doing. After you have rocked it, turn on the pump and let it run for about a minute(no need to be exact here) then turn the pump off and rock it again.This is how you work all those air bubbles out. Repeat the process until you have worked most of the larger air bubbles out. You will still be left with micro bubbles that you can see in your reservoir. Don't worry about them as it will take a few days for them to fully dissipate. Just make sure you get the large bubbles out and you should be fine.
Welcome to the world of Liquid cooling.

Before I can answer your questions about filling + draining. I need to know some things first

1) Where are you filling the loop now? from the looks of it, your reservoir does not have a multi port top so maybe you are filling from the top of the Radiator?

2) What were your initial plans for draining? If you got a port on the bottom of that rad. I would suggest to put the drain there. Go get yourself a "ball valve" or" QDC" or a combination of the two. Also another fitting to attach a tube after the Valve or QDC (I suggest a barb fitting and soft tubing so you can flex it into a bucket easily)

3) From the looks of the pictures, you might be going about your leak test the wrong way. I see too many cables connected to the motherboard. When you are doing the leak test, only the pump should be connected to the power supply. Everything else (GPU, SSD/HDD, etc) should be unplugged, nothing should be connected to the motherboard. Even the 24pin ATX main should not be connected to the mobo. Grab yourself a paper clip and jump pin 16 and 17 to create power to the pump. You can also buy a jump start connector for cheep but a paper clip will do just fine. (if you cant find a paper clip some wire will do). If you don't know what pins I am referring too, here is a pinout for reference.


reply back here and either myself or another forum member can assist you further. Good luck
