SMA8 build Project Stealth - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Thread Starter 
Well I've been tinkering all day...bleeding my wife's system and doing a few parts install here and there and need to get the drill bit that everyone uses to cut the holes for the tube routing through the mid plate.



Here i have one ddc pump res combo installed to one uni holder. I'm not going to install the other at least just yet, 'gotta measure the height and symmetry to the other uni without one pump installed then check the level.


Here i have the black fan grill installed. I didn't install my regular phantek rad fans cause I decided not to put a rad there (for now at least). Looking at the front fascia now, i may be able to use the dac that came with the 10th anniversary rampage. Depending on where i put the 360 rad in the bottom it may just work.

Thinking about the layout/distance of the res and it's orientation on the bracket/uni holder.


Got them mounted here and was so exhausted i fell asleep with a screwdriver in my hand and my 3yr old playing with my eyeballs, to let me know i wasn't finish.

Had a Lil dilemma on which rad to use up top.



This is the more uniformed approach but a 420 rad for a cpu only talk about overkill. I am not purchasing another read so my gtx 360 will have to do for the 290Xs.

I am happy to say that after 7 tries i finally got a successful bend. Ya ya 7 tries to get 1 right. I realized i kept getting bubbles on the inside of my bend(think i was heating it up too much) and also waiting too long to bend.

Nice and smooth, there's a few youtube video's too that go over bending. It helped me after I watched Jayz2cents and the examples he provided of how and why "x" happens when doing a bad bend.

I know that's my dude, always check him first. But in my case i was being too cautious (total weirdo). Everyone else rushes, me on the other hand was going to slow with my bends so far everything else has been perfect except my measurements 😆



After some mistrials one loop is finally done. Thought this build was going to take me months but nope. Never doubt yourself.

Nice looking good bro, the only thing that is itching my eye is that GPU res top, lol.

Thanks, I have to do the the top bend from the res to the cpu over it is a little off. The bend needs to drop a little. As far as that Gpu res cover...I can't get it to align, no matter what I've tried, flipping the tube, the res covers, tried screwing the top on from different points and it don't align.

I wonder if that one is just bad from the factory, maybe send EK a support ticket and ask for it to be replaced. That's the first one I've seen that looks off to that extent. thumb.gif
