Thread Starter 
so, I decided to keep working tonight, but very quickly ran in to a serious problem...

The end of the front rad sticks up above the top of the 5.25" bays a bit, which I thought was fine having test fitted it with the 360mm rad and the fill port installed. but evidently I never test fitted it with the front panel connectors installed. the rad and the front panel interfere and the rad will not fo in with the front panel connections installed...

I am not sure how I am gonna fix this. any suggestions would be VERY welcome.

yes, I am VERY glad I decided to go ahead and finish this build.

Thank you very much for your compliments, I am glad you like it.

thanks man!

the cathode is not nearly as overpowering in real life, it is just the pictures. I will work on getting some that show it more accurately one the build is complete.

Almost time to test some clocks and temps.
perhaps I did...

thanks, I am glad you like it.

I would enjoy doing stuff like this for a living, but I don't think there is much of a living to be had in this type of work...

unfortunatly I now have issue after issue piling up on me...

I sorta ghetto fixed the issue I mentioned with the front rad not fitting with the front panel connectors (doesn't look good, but it works) and so I decided to run all the tubing. I got that done and went to start filling the loop and for some reason the water did not want to flow out of the res very well...

I figured it was just the air stuck in the loop, so i was patient and flicked the tubing to get the air to move and all. well, when the water started to actually get down into and through the pump I notice there is a puddle forming in the bottom of the case...

it looks like the fitting going into the rad is leaking, so I will have to fix that, no big issue right?

well, after finding that I go to drain the full res out so i can work on the leak later and so it does not continue to leak all over the place. I was going to drain the res by unhooking the tube going into the pump

well, when i unhook that the water just kind stayed in the res... weird right? so again thinking it just air pressure, I blew into the fillport.

nothing happened.

for some reason water will not flow through the bottom port of the res. I have no idea why, but this means i have to undo a ton of the tubing work I just did to get the res out, then figure out what makes a RESERVOIR not function...

says the upside down girl

Kev i know in some of the older revisions that the helix would some times spin and block the ports. im sure you already checked that but im just making a suggestion... and i bet if you took some pictures of that rad problem up front some one could give you some ideas.


sorry to hear about the trouble i hope you get it sorted quickly
