Installing the PSU while Awaiting Parvum

So just a small update guys. The reservoir/motherboard block from Parvum, still isn't finished frown.gif
Really hope it gets done soon, as i hate to keep pushing the deadlines on this project, but i know it's a complicated
piece of work and that it's better to have everything correct so we dont have to re-do it..
Also had to re-design the block after sending new meassures, but i think this will look much more sexy when done. Will put in a image of that too.

So while waiting for the block, there's not really anything i can do, want to start sleeving but since the block isn't
here, i have no idea about the lengths of the wires. So i installed the PSU instead and started thinking about just making the psu side of the cables, and then just cut them long enough

that i can adjust the length once the block is here.
Well, i have around 4-6cm of freeroom for all the double wires, and just noticed that the 24pin has 11 freakin double wires.. Amazing, so i guess the old soldering iron will come into

play again. Just hope that i can make it neat and that there's enough space to fit all them cables smile.gif

Oh, wait, i also have the next project planned when i am done with this one smile.gif
An In Win S-Frame project called "Phoenix", with x99 soc Force from gigabyte, and alot of sexy custom waterblocks to be made for it..!
So have a look out for that one when the blue morpho is finished smile.gif
Dropped in a few teaser images for that project.












Now some teaser images for the next project..













Hope you like it !!

FINALLY!! The Reservoir/Motherboard block has arrived!

So after waiting way too long for this piece of art, Parvum finally finished the reservoir and motherboard block,
and i have to say, once again they did an absolutely AMAZING job. The block looks so stunning.
i unpacked it and instantly tried to see if i could mount it, unfortunally the mount holes was on the wrong side of the block,
so i had to drill and tap new mounting holes, and also had to tap the rad holder mount.
So guys, finally here's a small tease of the block and a quick mount of it!
Really sorry about the white plastic pieces in the block, was lazy and didnt want to open up the block to get it out. (14 days of work and 200hours, im tired!)


































Hope you like it !! cant wait to show you the next updates

I came here thinking this was the Venture Bros Blue Morpho theme. The Monarch aka the Blue Morpho is an awesome character!


Great looking project otherwise!

Need Help With 24Pin Sleeving Design?!

Since the block is finally here, it is time to start the massive sleeving job!..
Today i started on the 24pin, and have some troubles choosing what layout to go with, so i took some photos and threw in some numbers on them,
and hopefully you guys can help me pick the best design, before i go all crazy with all the damn double wires i have to make!
Take your pick and let me know guys smile.gif

Also added a quick picture of my pinout for the 24pin.. massive! ..Always remember to write down the pinouts before you rip the old cable apart !

And will be using white connectors in the front, instead of black ones, so threw in a photo of the 4pin CPU cable going in through the block, to give you an idea.
Also i decided that it will look too disturbing to the eyes if using cablecombs,when there's 44 cables in the back that has to be nicely tugged together..
So instead i will probably go Oldschool and do cable lacing on all 44 cables.
Hopefully with a very neat looking end result.























Please write what number you like the most, so i can get started with the 24pin.

I like either #3 or #4. #4 prob a little more, but they all look pretty good to me. I think I would have to see the whole build and all the parts to decide for sure.

Sleeving and Installing Blocks

So the past week i've been busy doing all the sleeving, and I'm still not done... I started with the cable lacing, (takes forever!), and i'm not sure i want to use the

blue cotton thread because it looks fluffy. So probably going to get some waxed blue thread instead and redo it.
Anyways i will attach a few images below so you can see what i mean.

I also installed all the waterblocks and fittings today, and see if i can find the best looking way to do the tubing, this weekend.
Another thing i have been doing is drilling 14 holes on the backside of the reservoir and tapped them, then mounted some standoffs that will keep the clear plexi plate in

place, which is going to keep all the cables neatly in place.. At least thats the idea, dont know how it'g going to look yet.

Almost forgot! Been trying a few options out for the placement of the powerbutton, and ended up bending some acrylic under the rad, and installed the button in that.
Not done with it yet though!.. need some fine adjustments and maybe some blue vinyl.. Originally i was going to put an LCD temp in the acrylic piece also, but we'll see smile.gif






















Stay tuned guys, soon more sleeving and also the tubing is getting done soon!

Allmost Done Sleeving!

Thank GOD, i am allmost done with all the sleeving.. The cable lacing took forever and was hard on my OCD haha.
I still have to arrange them a little more neat and close together, and also sand the edges of the acrylic window that holds them in place.
But leaving the cables alone for a while and have started doing all the tubing, Just to get my mind on something else than lacing!

Anyways, here's a few photos of the sleeving result so far, hope you enjoy it, and i'm sure it will look very nice once it's all done.






























Majestic looking EK WATER BLOCKS below <3



Now to continue all the bends on the tubing. Needed a break! haha.
