Classy Machine - Still Sexy - Page 136

D&D, didnt think anyone still played that. One thing you can do Kevin, is take the O-ring and fitting to Hydra Hose over on Cleveland St off Witchduck and they should have a thicker O-ring that will work. Graingers is a little closer to you in the Industrial Park on the Blvd but not application specific. Just be sure to take the rad and fittings with you. I think B&B Rubber and Hose might have something in the Industrial Park too, I know they have a shop on Bainbrige.
What about that space problem you had with the front rad and switches. Got that fixed. I was thinking maybe some 90deg plugs for the switch wires.

Sorry to hear about your problems but sounds like you are in route to a fix.
Those vid cards look amazing! You may want to spray some red on the SLI connector that would help it blend in.

Keep it up.

A bit of a noob question, but how did you mount the res? I'm gonna get one of those, but I want to know how you mount it first.


Thanks =D

can you file down that extra nub on the radiator and then flush it out real well?

Quick update:

Got the loop filled, everything looked good, then I noticed that there are drips of water dripping down the inside of the cathode tube...

Soooo, drain and fix round three

so! I def have enough work pics here for an update, along with a books worth of the tale of all the issues I had to deal with yesterday and today, But it is 3:45 AM, so it isn't gonna happen till tomorrow, sorry. :-(

good news is that I think I have all the loop issues resolved! (knocks on wood repeatedly and hard)

Thanks man!

Patience is DEFINITELY a must for any modder. while I admit, I have gotten impatient a bit with the issues I am having with this loop, that is just because it is stuff that is wrong with the parts. I have said all along that anyone is capable of this level of workmanship so long as you you take your time.

thanks for the suggestion man! I fixed it my own way though, I busted out the tube of clear silicone caulk and ran a bead around the holes and screwed the fittings on while it was still wet. Instant perfect size O-ring.

as for the space issues, the issue was at the top up by the USB ports and such. I fixed it by leaving out the door part which gave me the 4mm I needed. it looks a bit ugly, but I will figure something out for it...

I will post pics tomorrow, to tired now. (3:45 AM)

yep, problems are being/ have been dealt with one by one.

Thanks man! I love the red back plates, they are so awesome.

I will probably leave the SLI bridge as is, I like the look now.

Thanks =D
look back at the last update's pics. the res comes with mounting clips that are attached to wherever you want to mount it with a screw through the middle and a nut on the back. all it takes is drilling two small holes.

no need, although the thought occurred to me. If I had a mill i would have just cut them all down smooth.

but since I do not, I used some nice silicon caulk instead.
