Thanks! We had a hard time mounting the reservoir though. Currently using velcro to hold the reservoir to the side of the case. But it is starting to droop little by little and looking for mounting suggestions. Thanks!

EK do some clips for the cylindrical reservoirs.

Here's an example of something similar to what I mean -

I've used SCOTCH TAPE #4010 to secure reservoirs in the past. I attached the tape between my reservoir clips and the case structure. This tape is super strong. smile.gif

I'm already using clips like these. The clips are the ones connected by velcro to the case. Thanks!

I'll try to get some of these tape. Thanks! I live in the Philippines and I'm not sure if we have this.

I don't want to run premixed coolant because coolants increase temps, isn't there some sort of corrosion concentrate to add to the distilled water? I'm shocked that no one has developed a corrosion concentrate alongside the various types of Biocide, can anyone recommend such a corrosion concentrate that won't take up to much water volume within my loop?

My first ever soldering job on a PCB using my Hakko FX-888, not bad for a first timer!



Very nice work-especially if it's your first attempt.

+1 rep for your efforts thumb.gif


Excuse the OT:


Secondly, as far as i was aware, certain coolants actualy lower the loop temp and are also quite neutral in their Ph content-my advice to you would be to PM Mick on his thread (Mayhem's), im sure that he will offer you any suitable advice if he can-he's good that way.

The green corrosion is called patina, it is basically tarnish that occurs on the surface of copper/bronze and similar materials when the metal is exposed to various chemicals or acids and in turn oxidation takes place.

Have you had a look at the Ph of your loop (ideal Ph would be around 7),

'Acid' (soft water) water being under Ph 7, and Alkaline water (hard water) being over Ph 7 (i remember this from my old days when i was an Aquarium enthsiast-now those were kick a** pumps biggrin.gif)

Anyway, here is a link to simplify what i have said: http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/ph.html

that may well be the cause of your 'Green' problem. thumb.gif

it still needs to be filled and i have to put some lighting in there aswell, but i think it should qualifys me for the club biggrin.gif
Wow, love the look of those rads stuffed in a case that size. thumb.gif

I took a vacatio day so I could take this naughty girl to my tig guy, and I gotta say that for the time we worked and the perfect results we got, it's been about the best $100 I've spent so far.
I was really surprised, as that's about a third to half of what I expected based on the time we spent and the usual shop rate.
Anyway, I'll wait untill the weekend to dress the welds and clean things up a bit, but I just had to assemble the chassis and put in the rads to get an idea what I might want to do before I disassemble it to dress the welds and get some paint on the bare spots. I'll mark where the top chassis panel needs to be drilled for the plastic top to fit, and I need to relieve the top plastics for one of the top fans while I'm at it.
I was planning to put some aluminum angle along the rads to add some stiffening, but it's not going to be necessary, this sucker is rock solid and it's only got a few screws barely snug.
The boxed shape that NZXT uses along the edges of the top and bottom panels is incredibly strong, even lengthed out like this one is.
Everything just fits like a glove.
There's only 4 fans on the underside of the top rad, as there's not enough clearance above the motherboard, even for thin fans, but with 10 out of 12 fans, I doubt I'll be seriously conpromised.
I also have a thin, 20mm fan available for the rear most fan on the lower rad, in case I have a clearance issue with the 4th GPU.
Thought I'd share my excitement:
Darlene


Whoa! Excuse me, but your rads are showing, Bumble-Tuna. thumb.gif

Acrylic case, what kind?

Nice, but the tubes look a little crazy.

Thanks. Not much room, didn't want to buy new fittings, and not even enough room to get my hands in there. I really wanted a rad between the cpu and gpu, too. having bpth rad fittings in that upper corner was challenging. But the C70 has a support bar behind the faceplate so I couldn't have the top rad ports towards the front. Similarly, mobo lane preferencing dictated where the GPU had to go.
