Installing the waterblocks

I disassembled my current PC yesterday for the sake of testing the motherboard armor and seeing how things will look. I installed the CPU and GPU waterblock + backplate. Here are some pictures rolleyes.gif : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

















*floods with pictures*

The motherboard armor somehow barely fits biggrin.gif Though, the border between the CPU and RAM cutout had to leave the party. The CPU block mounting system was wider than I expected. I might redo the armor at some point and publish it for others to cut, but this thing was quite expensive.

One thing I'm wondering though: Is the rubber gasket of the CPU backplate supposed to be pushed up like that? The pins of the motherboard are pusing against it so it's at a slight angle. This looks kind of strange to me.

Update (or not)

There isn't too much going on right now. Currently waiting for two orders that carry fittings, tubes and sleeving as well as smaller parts.

additional Parts ordered:

Alphacool Eisrohr 13/10mm satin
Alphacool Eiszapfen double nippel
Alphacool HT 13mm HardTube CP fitting G1/4 - knurled
Bitspower Matt Black T-Block
EK-AF Pass-Through
BitFenix SATA cable sleeved - black
MDPC-X sleeving in black and white (white gets dyed)

A bit of a mixed bag here, but it should look fine.
To make this post not as boring:













Thanks for passing by smile.gif

Update

So apparently a package from Icemodz spent past night in my mailbox. Found it this morning and proceeded to open it up to get straight to work.
The package included the MDPC-X sleeving, some 18AWG wire for the PSU cables and heatshrink as well as female ATX pins. Today I did the fans only, as it doesn't really make sense to sleeve before the PC is up and running.










The white sleeve isn't supposed to keep it's color for long. Today was my first attempt at dyeing. I used 70ml Rit dye (color: teal) and mixed it with 30ml vinegar as well as 2 spoons of salt. All of that on top of 1L water.
After letting the sleeving simmer for around 30 minutes I archieved this tone:


Not really what I hoped.
The translucent molex connectors were in the bath for just a few minutes, so they seem to absorb the dye very well. But also not really the color I hoped to get.

This thread was very helpful and informative. Feel free to visit cpachris' thread if you want to do this yourself smile.gif. Though, I'll probably end up spraypainting the sleeve as dispersion dye (the one that worked best in the tests) apparently isn't available in Germany.

Thanks! I'll try to fix some measurements for a v2, so it fits better. Maybe others are interested in this cover, so I could publish it then. Though, CNCing is not cheap ._.

Anyways, case should actually land here tomorrow (was supposed to be here on friday, got resceduled to monday). A lot of updates to come:)
Can't wait for it.
