I've gone with the Barrow fittings to minimize the amount of seahorse dragons in my loop. I know a few people have used these fittings with success, hopefully I will have the same luck, the price difference vs Bitspower was enough to open my mind and wallet to them.

Haha I will do my best stick. Should be interesting! When do you expect to complete your build?

Probably mid-July. I was out of work for a few weeks and took a day to drive around the county and drum up some opportunities. It was surprisingly effective, now I'm busy as can be for three months. It's funny because the first few people I called told me they needed my ASAP. I have two houses to trim, one massive deck to replace pressure treated with composite, and then a bunch of custom cabinets and furniture to build and install. I have a family vacation next week, and it's destination is located conveniently to the Micro Center in St. Paul so I won't buy a CPU block until I know if I'm keeping my current board and CPU or not.

Nice, that's probably around when I'll have mind done as well, maybe slightly earlier. Now that I pretty much have my main components picked out I just need to finalize my loop. 3 x 240 rads or just 2 for a CPU & GPU loop? I know 2x240's should suffice buuuuuuuuuuut 3 is better than 2 biggrin.gif.

So have you committed to the pedestal? I've been limited to two 240mm x 45mm thick rads for my build. But I've opted for 2x 240mm ST30 rads. However I only have one, it was used but excellent condition. I need one more but my preferred retailers have been sold out for the better part of a month.

Yea, I've decided on the pedestal because I want the area around my board less cluttered. Plus that way I can display my build from all 3 sides with a windowed top panel. So I'm thinking 2 60mm 240's in the pedestal and maybe a thinner (xt45) in the front of the S3.

Lol too true. But if I put a rad up top it defeats the purpose of me getting the pedestal in the first place.
post #7780 of 22568
Sounds awesome, I looked at the pedestal but I don't like how massive it makes the S3 look. I went mini-ITX for the reason of a compact yet powerful build. One thing I noticed with the S3, you pretty much gotta trim your cables on the power supply because most PSU's come with 18"+ cables these days to appeal to most buyers. Mine are all cut around 12". It was a lot of work but man does it look better!




It's a cheap imitation of @B NEGATIVE's loom but from where I sit it looks divine.

Actually after a test fit of my front radiator and reservoir/pump combo, it would be ideal if my cables were another inch or two shorter, it makes me sick to my stomach thinking about trimming them all again, so I will see if I can avoid it with some conveniently located tie downs. Otherwise in a month or two when I have spare time I will trim them again.
