^Are you dipping the ends of your tubing in distilled to lubricate the orings? Might soak the fittings in a distilled bath for a minute or so too. Cause iirc those BP fittings are the correct size, being Metric. thinking.gif

So I'm figuring on about $120 worth of bits, before the cost of plugs and tap. At least I already have a 6-32 tap, so I can drill out the MB standoff points and I have some Dremel bits for I/O slots. Still need to pick up a Dremel bit for clearancing the width of the LED strips that will be on the face of the tray though. At least the project is advancing. Little by little but it's advancing. thumb.gif

@Ceadder you ever going to post some pics of whatever is your working on? I'm very curious smile.gif

I'm modding my 932 and giving it an updated look as well as going Overkill with the cooling system.

Photos of my 1st mod. I will add more as I do things to the mighty Veritas. I hope you enjoy.

Here is what I started with waaaaaaay back in 2011-2012. HDD Rack and 5.25 rack are retired. You will see the other metal that is now gone up in the top of the case as well as the MB tray. Back is being flipped 180* rotation. Considering flipping the front too. mellowsmiley.gif

I have a build log. But I've been pretty busy with Family issues and client builds for the last few months. Soon as I am able I plan to update the log. I thought I linked it directly in my signature but it's actually a link to one of my pic albums. So I will have to fix that so people can see what I am up to.

In the meantime, I'm slowly cobbling together my parts while the 932 is dismantled and am working out the layout of how my system will look. Because I got pic happy with the goodies I dropped a spoiler tag on it all. Click at your own risk. yessir.gif
Warning: Bandwidth killer! (Click to show)
6870s are going under water Since I don't want Nickel and to have to spend more on blocks for future upgrades...


Picked up a sponsor for this build and got some much needed fabricating goodies and cable combs


To go with these Cable Combs


Dremeled the Rear PSU support and filed the mounting area flat to allow the PSU a clean mounting area.

As you can see, when the MB tray is in place, the PSU is going to be DANGER CLOSE to the Tray. I may have to fit the tray to the PSU. So until that is worked out I cannot put the exterior together. I will be roughing up the PC of the case if I don't use PlastiDip. Still up in the air but it's gonna get there. Still have to Dremel the doors too. biggrin.gif

Picked up my 120GB 750 EVO for the OS. Now my board will get to work out it's 6GB limit. cool.gif

Still have the Steam drive to pick up. biggrin.gif

This is when I found out that I had the wrong dual parallel bridge. I need a triple. Not a double. Sold the double and am contemplating tubing run instead. thinking.gif

Also pictured and not... 30 Monsoon Economy v1s that are brand new. Now we have v2s out so I've picked my design and the v1s have to be sold to offset the cost of the new fittings. kookoo.gif Maybe Geno will sponsor me? blushsmiley.gif

My design for the v2s. Taking Gene's advice and three insignia's with the stripes will surround the collars. They will be Black Nickel.
imperial_cog_insignia_symbol_desktop_wallpaper_by_swmand4-d7lg2ff.jpg


A short commercial brake to bring you a pic from our Sponsor. tongue.gif

Got a Modder's Rule and a 120 grill that will not be seeing duty on this build. Likely a future build.

Moar EK goodnezz...

Replacing the DDC kit I was running because iBruce donated to the cause. thumb.gif


Picked up the RAM block a few months back. Debating picking up a pair of 8GB Vengeance sticks in 2000 and swapping the Dominator sinks to them, since I cannot get Dom GTs in 2000 and 8GB. So since that will void the ole warranty on the sticks those are to be painted. Only wish EK made 3 channel width single blocks. Cause this thing is a MONSTER on 2 sticks.

Picked up some necessary tooling for cutting hardline.


Only it won't cut 5/8" tubing without rotating the stock.

So this tool is getting modded at the motor bumps with a flatbar file. I will take approximately 1/8"-1/4" of material off. If I were going to cut only 12mm, it would work like the business. 5/8" is simply too large.

So as you can see, things are progressing slowly but this is a labor of love and not to be rushed. wink.gif

Using the Define S. I have a EK 360 rad on top and a thicker 240 Alphacool rad on the front. It is possible to switch the rads around. For the pump, I have the D5 combo with a 250mm res, The pump/res combo really can only go at the front like it was designed to in the Define S.

Doesn't hurt to try. Bout the only thing you're out in attempting the swap is coolant. thumb.gif

I suppose "reamed" means chamfered? Like Ceadder said, lube or Water thumb.gif

So go to the store and get some fancy lube, or spit on it. rolleyes.giftongue.gif

And not sure of what fluid to use yet.

These D5s are variable speed either by PWM control or setting the knob on the motor.

D5 PWM

D5 Variable Speed

Selection of D5 PWM - Also look for the "D5 Vario" versions at PPCS, these are speed control by knob. They carry XSPC, EK, Alphacool and I believe Aquacomputer.

EK PWM D5


There are some starting points. I included various sellers for fairness and competition.

As for fittings and tube, if you want to go rigid acrylic make sure you buy tube that matches fittings specs. For instance a tube or fitting measured in inches (then probably converted to the closest mm) may give you problems with compatibility. Flexible tube is more forgiving, but still, specs are important. It's best to match metric tube with metric measured fittings and inch with inch

A line of thought is, if you have a large area to build in, larger outside diameter tube looks better aesthetically, smaller area, smaller outer diameter. Ultimately, it's your choice. Build to suit your tastes.

I use a Lamptron CW611 controller for my pumps, fans and flow meter, but the Aquaero from Aquacomputer is a more comprehensive unit with amazing capability and expansion potential.

Some stuff to consider at least.

PPCS Closed due to Hurricane!

From their Facebook page: Due to Hurricane Matthew we will be closed and will open back up as soon as we possibly can. This means any orders places on or after 4pm Wednesday may be left in processing for a few days either due to loss of power at our building or flooding around the area.

In the meantime, I'm slowly cobbling together my parts while the 932 is dismantled and am working out the layout of how my system will look. Because I got pic happy with the goodies I dropped a spoiler tag on it all. Click at your own risk. yessir.gif

6870s are going under water Since I don't want Nickel and to have to spend more on blocks for future upgrades...


Picked up a sponsor for this build and got some much needed fabricating goodies and cable combs


To go with these Cable Combs


Dremeled the Rear PSU support and filed the mounting area flat to allow the PSU a clean mounting area.

As you can see, when the MB tray is in place, the PSU is going to be DANGER CLOSE to the Tray. I may have to fit the tray to the PSU. So until that is worked out I cannot put the exterior together. I will be roughing up the PC of the case if I don't use PlastiDip. Still up in the air but it's gonna get there. Still have to Dremel the doors too. biggrin.gif

Picked up my 120GB 750 EVO for the OS. Now my board will get to work out it's 6GB limit. cool.gif

Still have the Steam drive to pick up. biggrin.gif

This is when I found out that I had the wrong dual parallel bridge. I need a triple. Not a double. Sold the double and am contemplating tubing run instead. thinking.gif

Also pictured and not... 30 Monsoon Economy v1s that are brand new. Now we have v2s out so I've picked my design and the v1s have to be sold to offset the cost of the new fittings. kookoo.gif Maybe Geno will sponsor me? blushsmiley.gif

My design for the v2s. Taking Gene's advice and three insignia's with the stripes will surround the collars. They will be Black Nickel.

A short commercial brake to bring you a pic from our Sponsor. tongue.gif

Got a Modder's Rule and a 120 grill that will not be seeing duty on this build. Likely a future build.

Moar EK goodnezz...

Replacing the DDC kit I was running because iBruce donated to the cause. thumb.gif


Picked up the RAM block a few months back. Debating picking up a pair of 8GB Vengeance sticks in 2000 and swapping the Dominator sinks to them, since I cannot get Dom GTs in 2000 and 8GB. So since that will void the ole warranty on the sticks those are to be painted. Only wish EK made 3 channel width single blocks. Cause this thing is a MONSTER on 2 sticks.

Picked up some necessary tooling for cutting hardline.


Only it won't cut 5/8" tubing without rotating the stock.

So this tool is getting modded at the motor bumps with a flatbar file. I will take approximately 1/8"-1/4" of material off. If I were going to cut only 12mm, it would work like the business. 5/8" is simply too large.

So as you can see, things are progressing slowly but this is a labor of love and not to be rushed. wink.gif

There should be an award for the longest-running CoolerMaster HAF 932 in existence, lol!biggrin.gif

J.K., as I've mentioned before, imo, the HAF 932 was the best steel case I've owned.thumb.gif
I was thinking, perhaps you'll be painting the inside say, black? after finishing the modding.
Back in the day, lol, that was a popular thing to do with the original 932's.
I was lucky that mine was one of the black internal versions.

Some interesting mods you've got planned, such as the flipping of the front and back, watercooling, etc.
Looking forward to that!thumb.gif
