Weekend update. I tried to fill my loop with the 1/2 liter of coolant but that was not enough to cycle through. I ordered more which will be arriving by fedex sometime today. The good news is that the 1/2 liter I added had no leaks. All I can say is that this system looks sweet and I can't wait to have it running. I also figured out a way to add my second SM951 AHCI version using this sweet little adapter in the picture below. It allows me to utilize the PCIe slots in between the video cards. I also like that it mounts vertically for better air flow. I did purchase it from Amazon.com but they are currently out of stock. The link at the bottom appears to have them in stock My SM951 NVME version is occupying the M.2 slot.

I've used Noctua fans exclusively on my last 5 builds.

I have changed over to the iPPC fans (which are black) and come in both 120mm and 140mm with PWM. I can run them as low as 500 RPM, but of course have the capability to ramp up to 3000 RPM when the system demands increased airflow.

I just had one fail (NF-14 iPPC 3000), after a year, and I'm waiting to see how Noctua handles the failure.

Well I had a big setback today. After I made my first boot attempt the motherboard would not post. I tried all the usual troubleshooting steps with no success. The board would power up but the error code stayed constant on 00. Thankfully after months of this board being out of stock and back ordered Asus has caught up with supply. Amazon.com had it in stock so I ordered a replacement which will arrive on Tuesday. I'm so glad I added a drain loop which made removing the 2 1/2 liters of coolant a simple process. I'm not sure what caused the motherboard to fail but the last time it was turned on was last September. A lot has happened since then.

Did you test the mobo within your initial 30-day return window to make sure it was a good one and fully functional before mounting it under all that hard tubing? thinking.gif

Edit: oops, looks like you did test way back September. redface.gif

The larger builds seem to always offer many more options for motherboard issues, and the more complex builds seem also more prone to mobo failures, not certain why.

Good Luck M8! thumb.gif

I had this board running in a closed loop system with air cooled GPU's for about five months before I started this project. Their were a couple instances during this project where I had the board sitting out on top of a box with no real protection. I had taken it in and out of my older chassis multiple times so along the way something must have been broken. It sounds careless on my part, but I almost expected it. The only real test I had done prior to this was supplying power to the board to make sure the diagnosis LED's lit up properly. I know the board is faulty because the Q-codes are suppose to cycle during initial bootup. This does not happen and it's stuck on 00. I also attempted to use the Q-code logger with the attached thumb drive like the manual states. That did not work and no data was sent to the thumb drive. I also tied to clear the CMOS. I have a lot of experience with these types of issues and if the board is recoverable, then I have no doubt that I'd be able to make it happen. Fortunately i have a three year warranty so I'm sending this one in for repair.

The replacement motherboard arrived this morning and I am in the process of putting everything back together. Keeping my fingers crossed.
