What kind of flow are you trying to do there? You're like half way in between both with neither running correct IMO. Why not just try a series setup and see if that works without leaking. It seems like you are creating a blockage there with how you have them hooked up to each other. That would cause a leak because of forcing pressure there.

Or set it up for a regular parallel setup and add 1 more fitting between cards 2 and 3. I think that is your problem.

Is that some type of flow setup that you have seen work before? I have NEVER seen 4 cards hooked up like that, and for that reason I think you are making them leak. Can you explain why you have them hooked up that way? I just don't understand that one bud??


Same concept as this:



I am two fittings, not one, short of full parallel. To add in on more piece of tubing, I would need two more fittings, and I won't be able to get them until Tuesday at least, so I figured I would try the semi parallel idea.

The first two blocks would be Full parallel, then a serial to maintain pressure equal pressure on the first two cards. Then Parallel out. I purchased this lot of fittings from a user, and there were only enough to get this far. I may pull it apart and go strict serial, but like I stated earlier, the flow worked great, until i had to fix terminal one for the oring seating issue.

Anyone tried bending polycarbonate sheets?

How different is it compared to Acrylic?

So basically, you're saying that it's okay to rinse down the drain?

Down the sewage drain yes, down a storm water drain no.

if you only knew what some companies put down the sewage like my workplace we put about 2000lt of biocide down the drain a week for starters.
Also we do run a 2 stage effluent plant and part of the treatment is using hydrogen peroxide 50% technical grade we only put 1000lt a week of that down the drain too to reduce the B.O.D
But then it all goes to the main city sewage treatment plant were it goes though a 18 stage purification process.

Also we do have local council quarterly testing to check that we are within the specified limits of effluent discharge.

As discussed earlier, cable comes would help those sleeved cables out smile.gif
OR, if you are as good with your hands as your case suggests, you might wanna consider stitching them together?

Here is what I ended up with:

*Edit
I used This latching guide by @alpenwasser! Really nice guide.

Happy you find it useful, and nice result! thumb.gif

AHHH, okk. I have not seen a semi-parallel like that. I figured it was one or the other. The logic there is somewhat strange to me, but if that was how it's designed, I'm sure there's a reason.

Just seeing that he was having leaking issues there, it seemed that after the single inlet, the flow was opening up bigger into 2 channels, and then trying to force back into 1 channel and that seems like it would create more restriction or pressure, hence cause it to leak as it was. That's one is new to me. Serial works great, parallel works for a lot, that 3rd way is a new one and just seemed odd to me with how it splits and then goes back, then splits, and then goes back again LOL.

Would that not still create more pressure in that area tho? Like a river opening up into 2 rivers and there being twice as much water, then it trying to push twice the water back into 1 stream and causing an overflow? Just asking. I guess if everything is mounted correctly and seal good, it will definitely hold the pressure, but if not, I could easily see it start to leak.

Thanks for clearing that up now, learn new things everyday wink.gif

I've bent a lot of different materials including plastics, acrylics, and poly's. Best thing that worked for me is mounting the piece to a bench with some clamps of some sort, can use a piece of leather, rubber, cardboard, or whatever you like to not scratch it up, have the area that you want to bend right at the edge of the bench / table / piece of wood and then use a heat gun to heat up the area some (not too much to melt or discolor it) and then start to bend easily so it doesn't go out of wack. Let it cool down and then you are good to go.

@ SteezyTN, what Ramz said will work for sure. Or since you live in the states, shipping is pretty easy for us. I'm in Cleveland Ohio. If you measure the size of the cutout needed, as in width and height needed for them to fit in, and also the outside dimensions of the bezels so I know how far to space them so they all fit. I can make you a small panel for them to fit in nicely out of some 1/8" aluminum or something similar if you wanted. That would be a real easy little panel for me to make on the CNC's at work. I can use a square punch so the cutout is perfect and the corners don't have radius's if you want? You pay shipping costs and I'll find some scraps at work to make it out of. Usually I just buy the guys that load the tools in the machine a 6 pack for their time, but the hardest person to get something from is the programmer to make a program for the CNC, but you're in luck, I AM the programmer tongue.gif . Will only take me a couple min to make that and print out a program sheet so the guys in the shop know what to do with the blank I give them with the disk. I have 2 temp sensors in my loop now, but I'm just running the wires to a temp header on my mobo to read temps in AI Suite 3 in windows. I wouldn't mind having some of those digital displays myself so I may just make 2 panels, one for you and I. Then I can see my temps while in game or whenever. My fan controller has temp readouts but I'm not fond of the display on it and not sure I will be using this controller in my new case I'm building. I may come up with a nice little panel to mount them in to sit in front of my ssd's so I can see through the window easily if I can make it looks nice and clean.

How much were those displays you have? I'm curious now, but if you would like me to make something for you, just let me know and we'll figure something nice out so it looks good in your sweet looking build. Sound good thumb.gif

Could always mount like this too if you wanted? Look at the pic of your case I edited. I could actually make the panel long enough to cover that whole gap that you can see through on the right side of your res to close that area up and then mount the 3 displays anywhere on the panel. Not sure if you leave the back of your case off so you can see through it there or not?



Or looking something like this?? Well it would look better than my paint edit, but you get the idea lol



Much as Hambone suggests, I like the idea of using custom side trim panels as a way to dress up gaps, hide necessary uglies, or conceal cabling that is difficult to manage.

Using them as a means to add a display works very well, especially when done in conjunction with an appropriate side panel window mod.

Here I've integrated a pair of flow meters in the trim panel on my first chiller build, and created a new side panel window to make them easily viewable.

Hey Diva, what build is that there that was a "chiller"?? I would love to see some more pics of the chiller setup!! I had fun with a chilled setup once, until I went overboard ( like aways tongue.gif ) and had a mishap lol. I was playing way to close to the edge of delta and delta bit me in the arse lachen.gif .. I just laughed tho because I knew I was going to push it to that extreme, thank god for warranties!! Everything that did get hurt was all replaced for free, well besides shipping costs. My chiller was a little overkill tho to have running in my place for more that a few day of fun. It was actually a $5000 beer chiller from my buddies bar that I converted into a chiller for my pc. It was one of the chillers that run chilled fluid down the hose that the kegs hook up to so you don't have to refrigerate the kegs, by the time the beer came out the handle, it was chilled to whatever you set the thermostat too. Had a 15 gallon tank of chilled coolant in it and was great because with that much coolant being chilled, it never got warm even when pushing a lot of pc hardware.

Best part was seeing my i7 980x idling at -2c across the board lol , but would love to checkout some more pics of that build if you could link me something to checkout or whatnot. Thanks thumb.gif
