Cutting out the intake for the radiators





With the radiators and the fans installed









It closes!!



There is still about 2cm of space between the bottom radiator and the GPU

Thanks! smile.gif. I can't wait either tongue.gif. However, I'm in the States on a holiday until the end of august, hence the late reply. Once I'll get back I'll put all my spare time back in the project ;-).

So I got some good news: I should have my new power supply pretty soon!

I'm going for the Corsair SF600. It's super compact but fully modular!

Can't wait to see how it'll fit so I can start to sleeve smile.gif

I finally received my new power supply and I had the time to continue on this project. I will let the pictures speak for themselves smile.gif




















I'm glad to have found a way to fit everything the way it does. However, I'm concerned with the way the cables will be routed. I guess that I'll find out soon enough wink.gif.

On another note, I'm also wondering how I should go about with my loop realistically with the limited space that I have.

This is what I wanted to do originally: Reservoir --> Top radiator --> CPU --> Mosfet --> bottom radiator --> GPU
That would unfortunately mean a lot of tubing next to each other and a lot of surface to cover.

To make this easier I thought about doing it this way:
Reservoir --> Top radiator --> CPU --> Mosfet --> GPU --> bottom radiator.

Do you guys think that temps will be majorly affected by this? :/

Looking good so far thumb.gif Loop order basically makes no difference. The only thing that matters is res-pump which you have because you have a pump res combo. Also make sure you use the right inlet/outlet on your waterblock. On some blocks it doesn't matter but with many it does. The goal of your loop arrangement should basically be to have the shortest runs possible.

Updates! smile.gif

I installed the PSU and cut out the necessary space to route the cables. Had to open the case of it, so warranty is void, oh well.

I'm thinking of removing the little metal strip that is left over between the cutout for the bottom radiator and the PSU cables, don't know.

I also found out that I will have to put the case on 4 feet to allow the cables to run under the case.

Here's an update with the things that I've been fiddling with so far:

I have been playing with the acrylic tubes to get my bending skills right, but so far I haven't been very lucky...

I have cut out some holes with my dremel around the motherboard for cable management. I also cut out some holes behind the radiators to hide the 3pin connectors behind the case and between the plastic panels.

I'm currently still waiting for wires to start sleeving with paracord.

Here are the latest pictures:



Here you can see that I had to cut in the the rubber around my fans to be able to have the Alphacool logo in the same sense as on the radiator ;-).



Here you can see that with the rubbers around the fans, there really isn't a lot of space left for the fittings. It's a tight fit, but it works ;-).








I guess that the kinks I have are because I haven't heated it enough in some spots and because I didn't use gloves, I couldn't exactly touch where I had to... I will get some gloves and fiddle some more with to get my technique down :-p

Here's the result after some more playing around with the heat gun and using gloves:
