Don't use masking tape. Use Frog Tape. It's cheap, it sticks, but doesn't stick too much. It should be in every modders toolkit, along with BIC lighters and a hammer to smash things when they misbehave.

Duh why didnt i think of that. I have plenty of blue tape from my 3d printer. Thanks

At least go w/ 3m tape, most other cheap brand tape, it will stick, leave residue, or won't stick at all (ie Harbor Freight). Duck masking tape works ok but I wouldn't use it for very fine jobs and important/expensive paints. These you can easily fine at walmart.

Easy way to clean fan blades that are in a flexbay on a rad? Anyone?

You could try a can of compressed air?

Get a DemciFilter to fit CL Flex Bays... It will prevent some of the dust from getting to the fans and the Rads...

Otherwise, guess what... You'll have to take the Flex Bay out, and do a thorough cleaning of the fans and rads....

Depending on your dust situation, maybe 6 moths apart...

And, of coarse, anytime you may need to take down your loop, for whatever reason...

air compressor + plastic stick to keep fan from spinning.

That's exactly what I do. Dust buster and a thin flat head to hold the blade. Takes seconds and works. Here is where I left off tonight. Sorry camera pics again and bad lighting (I kid. You not working with a small head lamp on as to not wake the baby by turning on the lights lol). I have to say so far I found bending easier. I keep being a mm or so off which than I have to sand and repeat until it's the right length. A lot more time consuming than a bend and a cut back but maybe I'm still new to the fitting game.

well I bought a 3/4 HP blower/duster. I'm in a 500sq ft apt so a compressor is out of the question lol. It gets dust out of the rads but its pretty stuck on the fans.

Could I use Fan Attachment (120) along with Bitspower Mounting or Alpha Cool system to attach my Res/Pump in my S8S?

Case-Labs Fan Attachment (120): http://www.caselabs-store.com/fan-attachments-120mm-pricing-varies/
Bitspower Mounting: http://www.bitspower.com.tw/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=170_175&products_id=3678
My Res/pump: http://www.performance-pcs.com/alphacool-eisbecher-d5-150mm-acetal.html (I have Swiftech MCP655)

That's pretty much whole my toolkit. biggrin.gif


Anyway, what feels like million years (and overcoming few problems) finally have a bit of time to post some pictures. Project Ultramar is officially finished (I mean I have plans already what to add, but that's nature of my way doing things LOL). There were 3 steps: 1 - crazy experiment, 2 - more or less final concept, 3 - all bits and pieces connected.

So without further ado let's get into the pictures part.



Pre dyed coolant.







Final version.

As a big fan of Warhammer 40K universe I dedicate this to 5th Company of Ultramarines - Ultramarine blue, White insignia, Gold emblems and Black Trim.

If you think that TH10A is big case - think again! If you have any questions feel free to ask. Complete list of internals is avaialble on EVGA ModRigs. OCN Rigbuilder doesn't work too well for me.
