The current plan is to minimize the number of bends due to the difficult of bending stainless and use mostly elbow fittings.

Why did you choose 316 over 304?

Yeah mate, got some Ridgid kit from the guys at work...makes the bends super neat!


Not a massive difference between 304 and 316. Think 316 is a little more corrosion resistant. Not that it matters in a PC build though. I just grabbed whatever the local supplier had for 12.7x0.9 in stock. I was hoping to get annealed, but they didn't have any.

Doing your build with elbow fittings should make things super easy. I wanted to keep my routing as simple as possible and using as little fittings as possible, which means more of a bending challenge rolleyes.gif

You are right that 316 offers more corrosion resistance - particularly in high-saline environments, and against chlorides, de-icing salts and other industrial solvents.

I chose 304 simply because it was cheaper and my supplier had it in stock.

Metric tubing for the Bitspower fittings is hard to find in Canada (ironically, a country using the metric system) and the USA. I found only two suppliers in North America, Parker Steel and Spahr Metric.

Nice Ridgid kit. I also got a Ridgid kit, shown below.

I picked up the block and backplate for the GTX 1080 from DazMode last Friday. However, I will not be opening them until I receive the video card.

I ordered an EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition on release day, 27 May, from Newegg. I had it shipped via ground. For some strange reason, the video card went from California to Vancouver and now it has travel over half way across Canada before it finally gets to me.

According to the tracking information, I should receive the video card this Friday.

Another little update! The EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition arrived today, 2 days earlier than anticipated. I was not expecting this, but it is a nice surprise. I cannot wait to put the block on it. However, I still have to test it to ensure it works.

When I take off the cooler to put the block on, I will show what is under the cooler.

Another update on the build. Since my last update, I designed the PCB for the custom fan hub. The PCB was sent to the manufacturer last week and is anticipated to arrive either very late next week or the following week.

In addition, I installed the GPU block onto the video card.


I had the choice between the black Acetal block and the plexi one and I could help but choose the stealthy black Acetal block.



Had to take a close up of the engraving job on the inside of the block. The nickel plating is so shiny!



A nice closeup of the GP104 core powering this monster of a video card.


Another closeup of the GP104 core.



Block and blackplate are installed on the card.


With the block on, the card looks so thin!

Unfortunately, we are not doing well as I ran into a few issues with the Gigabyte motherboard and the GTX 1080.

The first issue was the Xbox One wireless receiver was not being passed through to the virtual machine properly. If I used a wired connection or passed the root USB hub to the virtual machine then the Xbox One controller would work.

The second issue was the Windows virtual machine prompted me about a new network connection whenever the tap0 device was recreated.

The third issue was a code 43 during the installation of the NVIDIA drivers on the virtual machine. This is a known issue with a known workaround.

Because of those issues, I have started to explore other mATX motherboards and video cards, such as the ASUS X99-M WS, and two different single slot AMD video cards, the Fury X and the RX 480. I am even entertaining the idea of going to a full ATX motherboard in the Mercury S8S so I can keep the GTX 1080. I have also thought about forgoing the virtualization and just dual booting the system.

I will give another update when I finish my exploration of the different motherboards and video cards. I hope to finish within the next week.
