Thanks for the comfort, guys. Much appreciated.

Heh... seems there are a number of us that are having issues. TechnoDan and his radiator, CR and the paint for the case, me and my boat that don't float....



Gah!... that is the "beauty" of modding and scratch-building... it can be a true test of ones conviction.

So... I ordered the Swiftech Micro-Res V2 and once that arrives I will pick up where I left off.

Wasted ~ Yah... I know what you mean. I really wanted to fabricate all the parts for this case.... but there is still the EK150 res on the CPU/NB loop, so one more retail piece is "okay".... I guess....

Truth be known, I would just like to get this back up and running so that I can start tweaking and fiddling... it has been a long 7 months.



Tehpwn, thanks for adding your comment.

I know it sounds lame, but these little things can be quite depressing.... maybe I need to get out more?

Syrillian I don't see why you shouldn't use a tried and true MicroRes, its probably much more economical then having to re-do the bonds 2-3 times on that res not to mention if this is a client build haha

What I have always wanted to see was a reservoir that was circular, and the in/out was positioned in such a way that would create a tornado inside the reservoir... *nudge*

I been thinking about trying to get my friend to mill something like this at his work (Lincon Lasers if you've ever heard of em) but I don't know if I can afford a big block of acrylic let alone deal with the cost of failure lol..

Indeed you are astute.

I have raised the white flag, and am going with the V2 of that which you mentioned.

The V2 is nice as it has an added fitting-opening on the bottom.

As for the vortex.... well... the EK line of reservoirs can have this issue, and it can be a PITA. I am in fact using one on the CPU/NB loop.

But going back to acrylic... yeah, I kinda did things backwards here. That is why I find myself in this unsavory position.

Live and learn.

Oh no... I did not mean to dissuade you.

The vortex idea is great, but ensure that there is enough depth or volume so that the system is able to bleed.

When I had the hardware on the test bench there was a small vortex (1/2" deep) that was quite tame. There will probably be one in the CPU/NB loop as I am using an EK150 res.

...it looks cool.

OMG! I still lived in Hong Kong when I used to watch that show, it was one of the few things I was allowed to watch.

I LOVED IT. I even made a paper mache island and had some small models of the vehicles that I loved to play with....

Ah yes... the Thundercats.

What was that whiny things name, Snarf?

I wish I had a garage too.... I do all this in my "living room", or outside.

Yeah. Someday a workshop will be had. There is a fair amount of carpentry that I want to do too.

*dreams*


Thanks for dropping in, Guys.
