Redid the tubing, reoriented the Apogee Drive, added in a nonreference 7950, and swapped the PSU for a SFX one.
Next up is a radiator up top (the one from Aliexpress arrived a while ago, but it ended up being 35mm thick instead of 30mm listed on the page, getting complete refund). Looks like I'll be going all Black Ice radiators. Right now it's between the BI Pro and the GTS. Anyone still have one of the Pro's still around? I'd like to know the actual thickness off the body since most sites list them at 25mm thick, but HWLabs lists at 28.6mm. If it's really at 28.6 instead of 25, I'll just go with the GTS to make them all matching, otherwise I'll probably go for the thinner and try to fit in a 25mm fan.
It also looks like the nonreference Powercolor R9 280X has the same exact PCB as my 7950, but has a backplate. I'm going to see if I can get one.
After all that, I'll think about swapping out all tubing for fittings.
Yes, standard-sized PSU fits in there, but I'd have to redo that piece from the Apogee Drive to the GPU block, and I'm just about out of fittings
, and no radiator will fit on top (either one port semi-blocked off by PSU or too thick/long).
About the CrossSLI from the fillport, d-plugs are too fat
, otherwise it would stay all-Bitspower (except the Koolance blocks, Bitspowers are, again, too fat).
I also sprayed the outside of the side panels white plastidip. Apparently I sprayed the last few coats when it's too cold, and it came out in tiny globs. I decided to stick with it since I'm too lazy to redo, but it turned out pretty well, and has an effect similar to the paint on the wall. Alas, too lazy for pics.
Order of things:
1. 7950 backplate from Powercolor (if I can get one)
2. Radiator up top.
?. Convert to all fittings.
?. Cable management?
Somewhere in there I should plastidip the rest of the outside of the case white.
Apparently my semi-broken breadboard PWM controller for the pump is hiding off sight.Edited by lvlrdka22 - 11/3/13 at 8:18pm
