OK, its long overdue. With my RAID situation still not resolved decided I may as well do things the other way. From the back he, he.

Muchos, muchos boxes arrived today from Aqua Tunning & Caseking and that big card box underneath (with even more bubble wrap and boxes inside lol) long time ago. Still waiting for small box from Highflow but nothing critical, just additional options. By the time you reading this both rads are flushed thoroughly.




Project Ultrmar is officially underway. I don't know when I will finish and how fast thing will move on. 4 days or 4 months. Depends on workload. And I know by now that defo I will need some extra fittings. Damn no matter how long you plan and order over the top always one or two is missing.

Not planning to gut it completely because I don't have that kind of time and space. For now only CPU with GPU(s?) will wait till Pascal is out and my 71605 situation is resolved (it doesn't work on X99 and for now running basic 6805E as supplementary card).



So first little step, top Nexxxos 480/45 with quad AeroCool DS fans is up. Spaced with Phobya rubber shroud (not visible) to give some breathing room the radiator and reduce dust build-up. It's late afternoon and is still so frigin hot. After days like today I'm totally wasted by weather alone.



In short: it will be practical build so no rigid tubing of any kind (planned Alphacool's metal pipes, but time is precious commodity, perhaps another time). Decided to go with EK's ZMT rubber tubing. Looks nice, smells not so good, but that's rubber. biggrin.gif It will evaporate in time. Theme will be resembling W40K Ultramarines 5th Company - blue, black and black nickel plated trims (planned default gold trims, but with price of Bitspower gold/brass/ fittings in Europe it would easily double the cost of already expensive project). Hope it will come good at the end and... I shall know no fear while project is running. wink.gif


BTW: Could you good folks clarify one thing for me. I've got superb looking EK 5.25 Res+pump combo for this project. I'm curious if I could mount pump up-side down with vario selector up not down as default (or even better with selector at 3 o'clock)? It will simplify hiding these ugly cables. Most manufacturers don't acknowledge reverse style cases so it looks bad even if you sleeve them. Perhaps silly question, perhaps funny. Please understand my dilemma. Last time I had custom watercooled computer it was early P4 days and I was using water pump from aquarium, plastic bucket next to the desk with some dodgy half-cooper block from a company nobody ever heard of. Good old days? Not exactly! ha, ha Aloooot of things changed since then...

This is exciting and I love the name/theme! Can't wait to see more thumb.gif

not sure I fully understood your question about the pump but neither ddc or d5 should be mounted upside down.

I think @Ypsylon is checking if it is OK to rotate the pump in the housing of the D5 Dual Bay Res combo as pictured in his component stockpile

If that is what you meant, then yes, feel free to remove or loosen the retention plate and rotate to best suit your installation..
D5 pumps are fine mounted either sideways and vertical (with impeller facing up)
It does not mater which way the the pump is rotated/orientated, so long as it is mounted appropriately.
As Gabz stated - never upside down (impeller facing down)

Haha i hear you man. I got a friend that owns a body shop and has a paint booth. Looking into what I need to do to prep the case so the auto paint bonds to the alum.

I wonder if aircraft stripper would work or if it would damage the aluminum.. hmm

I really wanted to paint the panels, but stripping the powder coating and re-coating is really expensive here in SG
