Doh! He was talking about doing it a while back, so when I saw the pic.....

Oh well, when he does it he'll have gotten rep in advance....

That's weird. You're sure you were measuring 12V to GND, and not to or from the TAC line? Leave the fan plugged in and measure at the back of the connector where the wires go in. On a 3 pin fan line, it should be red to black (in most cases). It seems manufacturers don't bother following the same color codes when they change the number of wires in a connector, and will often take the 12V line (yellow in a molex) and change it to red when converting to a 3 pin fan connector. This leaves yellow in a 3 pin fan connector for the TAC signal. I have nothing nice to say about this practice. Red should always be 5V, and yellow should always be 12V, and of course black for GND. If the wires are all black then you should be measuring from an outer wire to the centre wire. Centre should be 12V, one outer is the TAC and one is GND. Use your multimeter to make sure which is GND.

Agree 100%. I mean, what, another 20 cents worth of plastic? The stock Corsair 200mm fans in my case where like that too. I wanted to move the fan from the inside to the top fan enclosure, but the fan only had mounts on one side. (AAARRRGGGG!!!!!). I feel better now...(sys looks sweet BTW).

That's amazing! I think it looks way better than rubber/plastic hoses. I'm surprised more people don't use copper. Is it more prone to leaking or something? You just use a plumbers pipe bender? Do you flange the ends?

I like the look of your board but it's pci layout is problematic if you use a sound card. I get that it's designed with 3 gpu's in mind but SLI or crossfire with a sound card is an issue.

I can even put two 3-slot cards (like my Asus 580 DC-II's for example) in SLI and still have a spot for the sound card on the V-Pro. Asus really outdid itself on it's mid range board layout.

Hey folks..

So I've got my shopping list together for the first part of my water cooled upgrade..



Keeping..

My 600T Graphite (of course) and the Corsair AX1200, Sapphire HD6970 and the three front bays with 3.5inch SATA2 hot-swap bays.



Buying..


Pending availablity ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3

Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD [x2 RAID-0]

Intel i7 2500k

XSPC RayStorm Intel CPU Waterblock

Black Ice GT Stealth 240 Black

Swiftech MCP35X 12V Pump

Phobya Balancer 250 black nickel

Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black 1/2 Compression Fitting CC5 x6
Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black D-Plug Set x1
Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black Triple Rotary 90 Degree Adapter x1

Distilled Water

NZXT Sleeved LED Cable 2m Blue

Primoflex UV Blue 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD

Noctua NT-H1 Thermal Compound

120x120x30mm *3 Noctua NF-P12 120mm Fan
200x200x30mm *1 NZXT 200mm Rifle Bearing Fan


Later I will add a full coverage EK Full Cover VGA Block EK-FC6970 Acetal and an additional reservoir..

The airflow for the 600T will be to intake at the front using the NZXT 200mm Rifle Bearing and exhaust at the rear using a Noctua NF-P12.. also the 240 Radiator up top will use two Noctua NF-P12 to intake..

Possibly I will add fans to a modded door, which is currently in the garage half done..

hey
well i just used a normal pipe bender and some dish soap to help it slide in the jaws but all the pipes were wet 'n' dryed then polished so any marks were removed
the fittings are bitspower sli link tube fittings and the pipe just pushes in smile.gif

thanks
personally i think its better as none of the pipes get squashed when warm
ive not had any lecks from the pipe work as of yet only a bad thread in the ek rez in the end i had to glue in a blank to fix it frown.gif

yes a plummber pipe bender but only a cheap one
and the ends of the pipe were deburred and sanded to give a smooth edge so not to cut the o-rings in the fittings

Do you think 1/2" would work?? 12mm converted over is just under 1/2 inch(.472429). I have plenty of that already and would like to go with the 1/2". I just said 1/4 and 3/8 just because the tubing looked small.

Sucks that those fittings are 10-11 bucks for a set of two. I finally switched all my fittings over to 1/2-3/4 compression fittings, now I want to switch them again. My wallet hates this site, but I love it lol.
