I realize I didn't use the right vocabulary :
- I plan to have 1 air intake as high as possible
- given the design of my loop, I guess I will need 2 drains

You can create a drain outside the case, Right outside the lower chamber. Also you can use quick disconnects or valves as a drain. I know Modmymods uses Quick disconnects over valves when they build there PC's.

I have valves (i bought 4 of them)

Quick disconnect cost an arm, for something I would use once a year smile.gif

There usually cheaper then a valve. I do not suggest using quick disconnect from Bitspower.

I got a quick disconnect for 20 dollars a bitspower valve (rotary) is 35 dollars.

Did good today, all mandatory cables done (ie except for the ones supplied with the PSU, I have built / sleeved all the other cables. I will do the PSU ones on the go and replace the OEM ones one by one, leaving the beasty 18/10 --> 24 for the end)

This means next week end :
- take measures for the tubes and cut them
- dismount all rads, etc...
- mount everything properly, with grid filters, etc...
- pre-mount one side of the tubes everywhere to minimize the amount of in-case building
- mount the loop
- test it (I may try a bit of air testing, then just test is with water)

Pictures will come back for this occasion as well (I figured you'd be bored with sleeving pictures, after the 10th PWM-style cable, the magic vanishes a bit tongue.giftongue.gif )

Hum, almost a month without pictures smile.gif

As you'll see, there has been progress !


Reservoir sleeving / pump assembly
Sleeved LED wire


Chose to join the two pumps into one cable. Those have been crimped with a Molex pin



With sleeve and connectors.



Front switch assembly
Thanks Revan for the terminals reco, they worked really well !

Standard connectors, trying to figure out the pinning / polarity



Double wiring for the AQ6 relay (so the relay can act as a magical finger holder Power Down)


Also crimped using a Molex terminal



Reset cable in progress

Reset cable done

I used heatshrink to isolate the terminals, as there is clearly a risk they touch each other...



Cables making-of

I took these to show step by step of a dupont fan terminal crimping, to document my learnings for later on (eg : mind the little retention pin, it is very easy to crimp it flat)




My first, full fledged, heatshrinkless sleeved power cable. I am beaming with pride (you can see the theme of my build, white / platinum grey / italian red)









Aquaero -> Splitty9 PWM fan cables (I used heatshrinks to color code the cables : red = connected to Aquaero)




Aquabus Flow cable (I have bought medium heat shrink, I will probably finish it off a bit better...)


Temp sensors, all nicely sleeved


USB cable armada : 1 from the mobo, 1 to AQ6, 2 to the two pumps, and 1 to Aqualis




Aquabus 3/4pin cables

This week end I have been busy as well, finally starting loop work and proper assembly.

Test of my cheap, long M4 screws

Clearance is all good (the outer shell of caselabs is incredibly thick, so this provides margin)


Front parts assembly
Lower 3U Flexbay cover, with its decimflex filter



360 rad, in its flexbay mount, with the decimflex filter


Same, with the wires entrapped (slidding so many cables doesn't work, as I found out redface.gif )




Aquaero 6 mounting and wiring


3 Fan channels + 1 AQ Flow + AQ High + Relay (safety #1) + RPM/tacho (safety #2) + 3 temp sensors (other are plugged to AQ devices) + Molex power.







Cable routing : most go on the side, except those going to the lower chamber, which I routed through the 360 rad)


Lower chamber arrival : 360 fans on the left, other cables on the right


Kids, do not try this at home smile.gif (I found out that my Corsair test PSU doesn't have the same pinnings as my EVGA, so I made an "adapter" on the go with spare male mini-fit terminals. I ordered proper connector housing to make it more safe tongue.gif




360 / 560 rad mounting and wiring
560 wiring :




560 tubing, showing the 360/560 drain. I will have a similar one on the pump

It's positive before negative. Most use NO (Normally Open) setup for the switches(Numbers 4 & 3). I've seen some motherboards use NC (Normally Closed) as well (Numbers 1 & 2).

Yeah I figured that out once by testing the pins with button release and button pushed.I plugged it as it was, ie NO.



Initial loop testing
I completed by loop yesterday evening.

I used Dr Drop and I cannot even establish pressure in the loop, so I must have a massive leak somewhere.
This morning I quickly unplugged the top rad from the rest, I cannot establish pressure there either, so I may have a lead. I hope it's not the rad itself bigeyedsmiley.png

Lesson learned : I should have tested my loop in chunks smile.gif

Be careful regarding the results of the Dr. Drop tester, as I have one myself and can confirm if it is not in perfect order AND used properly, you can end up with the sort of leak you're experiencing. A number of others have experienced similar problems using it. If you can manage it without too much hassle, try testing it on a smaller section of your loop, or even a spare radiator you might have.

Good to know...

Mine holds 0 pressure, I don't even pass the first black mark (0.1 bar). it seems to work if I put my finger on it (the needle goes all the way)... I tested it on a sub part of my loop comprised of a
Code:
valve (closed)-90° adaptor-T adaptor-fitting-tube-fitting-dr drop
                                            \------6mm-M-M adaptor - water temp sensor---30mm extender-480 rad-90° adaptor-tube (that I would hold closed with a finger

I guess I will go old style, plug back the tubes, wrap fittings & co in Ikea colored paper napkin, and carefully run the pump with external PSU, with no component plugged.
