post #16141 of 106753
Spent last night building the new case up. Made the move from the Antec P280 to a 650D. This is my first time using compression fittings and I hate them. I had four leaks in the first 5 minutes of running water through it. I have never once had a leak with a straight barb.

Yay leak testing!

But now there is an interesting problem. The front of the case won't fit around the bay res. Solution: lay it on the back and take the front cover off.

Somehow to the camera the res is a different color than the case, but I can't tell the difference at all. The grain of the aluminum finish goes perpendicular to the case but it matches perfectly. I love this res, it literally took 5 minutes to fill/bleed. It didn't trap bubbles at all. Well worth the price.

Pics of the full rig coming soon, need to recharge the camera first.

Can't wait to see it thumb.gif

I've never had leaks installing compression, only once when the tube got pulled really hard it started a slow leak. I did have quite a few leaks with barbs and that was because the clamps were a pita to install and were not going on properly.

Looks great btw smile.gif

Haha just the opposite for me, I never even used to put clamps. Compression fittings look way better though, I have to admit. It looks great running with the green fans, I'm just feeling lazy and don't want to move it all around to get good pictures of it. Stupid thing weighs about 50 lbs filled with stuff.

I love the clearance you get with a smaller compression fittings (compared with my old 1/2x3/4). It also looks much more streamlined when you connect them to extensions. Don't look like a mushrooms any more tongue.gif

Mine are huge.... I had some clearance issues on my front radiator since the fan holes aren't perfectly aligned. 1/2x3/4 is fat tubing haha.

Looks pretty nice there Scorp. thumb.gif

Before reading, I thought you had it on its back to fill the Res. Not to fit the Res into place. Of course that might have been the better way to go and let gravity do the work. Unless of course you have a fillport someplace else in your loop or a drain tube you can use a funnel to fill with. There isn't any one right way I guess. tongue.gif

Well, I didn't check to see if it worked with the front on before I went and filled the whole thing up and leak tested it. The front has a lip to stop disk drives from going in too far I guess. The res is the danger den monsoon premium and I'm seriously in love with that thing. It has ports right on top that stick out with the case front off so I just filled it up there, literally the whole loop was filled and quiet in less than 5 minutes, all the bubbles out. It seems to have a lot higher performance for the D5 than the xspc D5 top/res I was using before as well. As a side not, the tool-less bay clips on the 650D are terrible, they don't seem to work on anything. I ended up taking them off on the 3 bays I did use.

Heres some pics I just snapped real quick.


This is just to show whats in it, I turned the cold cathode on (I originally installed it just to help find leaks but I figured it could stay).

I took some with the lights off so you can see the different lights in there. I have the power LED wired to the bottom of the raystorm block in red, and the HDD LED is on the top of it in red as well. I may get some different colors for that, but I kind of like the contrast.

By the way, that white rig above me is amazing ^^
