Looks like i'll be making those changes to the tubing and lower pump this week now. Ugh, i just wanted to play TW3 Blood and Wine first.


With a view like that from your PC i'm not sure how you focus on the games. If i were you i might have tried to Yodel outside to try to make an avalanche. band.gif

Definitely looks like growth to me. I can't ever suggest leaving a loop powered down for a month, even if it has growth inhibitors in it. Stagnant water = bad.

That sucks, i thought it would be fine so long as it wasn't exposed to sunlight. The side that was not exposed to light seems to be perfectly fine but i guess i won't really know until i drain and look inside the other blocks. Either way, the algae is spreading rapidly in the gpu block. Gonna have to drain it in the next day or two. Really not looking forward to cleaning out everything, such a pain. mad.gif

After coming home from being away for nearly a month i had discovered my loop was full of algae. Unfortunately it was spreading rapidly and had to be dealt with sooner rather than later which meant a total tear down and cleaning. Total pain in the ass, i do not look forward to ever doing this again. I'll be leaving this running while i'm out of town from now on. Ended up taking the opportunity to redo the entire loop order and tube as well as clean up some wiring. While i'm finally satisfied with the way everything looks now, i did run out of fittings and will have to redo a couple sections of tube at some point.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Teardown complete, i can start cleaning everything.




White pastel residue around the o ring of the cpu block. Both gpu blocks suffered the same problem. Some metal polish took it right off. Other than some algae on the plexi covers the blocks and channels were surprisingly clean.


Cleaning is complete. I used dish soap and warm water on all nickel blocks, fittings, and acetal pieces. All plexi/acrylic parts, especially those with algae, were soaked in a 15/85% solution of white vinegar and warm water. It took roughly two hours for all the algae and the white film that pastel fluids leave behind to lift off. It left the plexi/acrylic pieces very shiny and looking brand new. Rads were cleaned in a similar manner with several flushes of 25/75% vinegar and water. All parts were then thoroughly flushed with warm tap water followed lots of distilled water flushing. The cleaning alone took more than a day.


Time to put things back together starting with the gpus.




Cpu block is mounted.


Upper pump mounted.


Test fitting the res. Looks good.


Rough outline of where i'm going to drill a hole for the passthrough.


Rads are ready to go.


Test fitting the res again with the pass through. Fan is there temporarily to check for clearances. I had drilled into the cover plate that goes there for the pump previously and don't have a spare yet. Ended up removing it later after doing some temp testing with various fan configs.



Lower chamber pass through and wiring mess.



First tube is bent and in place.


Another tube done.


Parallel all of the things.



Pump to pass through tube done.


Top res to vrm block done. This is one of those sections i had mentioned that needs to be redone. Its not quite how i had originally intended to run it.


Getting to the end now.



Tube is done. This is the other piece that i need to redo.


Leak testing was a success. Still not happy with the fluid color. Its darker than it appears in the pics as my phone camera tends to oversaturate the blue color. I'm at the point where adding more blue dye does nothing. I'm going to need to mix up a few different dyes to get a black dye to get it darker. Looking for a dark blue.


Since having everything up and running for a couple weeks i've run into issues with pump noise and rattling in various spots in the case. Happens at certain pump speeds. It seems mounting two pumps to the midplate was a bad idea. I have some ideas of how to fix it but it'll have to wait until i have some free time again. I'll have to order a new midplate since i've drilled into it in several spots.

I also plan to get some updated pics into the OP sometime this week.

I've also been ordering all the supplies i'll need for sleeving over the past couple months. The last order finally came in this week. I have enough sleeve, wire, terminals, and connectors to sleeve this thing twice and then some. There is going to be learning curve and i wanted to make sure i had more than enough to learn with. Can't say how soon i'll get around to sleeving the PSU as i'm fairly busy for the next couple months. I'll likely build a cable here and there when i have time.

There is also a singularity computers res mount i had intended to use but it didn't arrive in time. I'm hoping to solve some of the pump resonance issues with it later.

You've redone this build so many times that I've lost count. I don't know where you get your patience from, definitely +1 to that. biggrin.gif

The new tube runs look good! Surprised you had algae already. Good luck with the sleeving thumb.gif

Its past due that i get some pics of the rig while its up and running. I have no real plans to change anything other than sleeving the psu and all peripherals at this point. Unfortunately my phone camera never captures the color of the fluid correctly. Its much brighter in these pics than it really is. OP will be updated with these pics as well.

I'm moving soon so i'm going to be busy for the next month and don't plan on any further updates for awhile.

Great pics and very good job on your acrylic bends. Night and day difference from when you first started, +1! I can't imagine moving and giving up that view from your office, hopefully the next place is even better!

Thanks, i learned a lot in the process. Future builds should come out looking great the first time from now on.

There will never be a better place than this for me, it just can't be beat. However i'm only moving a couple hours away and this is a weekend/vacation home. I'm here all the time in the winter and summer. I was living here because i had back surgery at the beginning of the year and had to drop everything in my life to deal with it.
