Here is the leak test in progress.... I have it set up on a perfectly dry table that shows when its wet big time... like when we are testing sippy cups for leaks.

I have the flow starting in the rez and going to the rad... then from rad to pump/block... then pump/block back to rez..... I have gotten the air out of the system (took about an hour of turning it on and off and raising each part above the rest to direct the flow of the air bubbles to the rez.






Notice the pack of cheap smokes keeping the rad standing upright until the air was out.



The wires on the Yate Look fans are not sleeved..... there is my next project later tonight or tomorrow. Also the wire from the pump is sleeved in black.....gotta change that..... was thinking of doing pump and fans in white. Make them stand out a little more.I now have 3 extra 120mm fans to do something with. Should I put on in the drive bays blowing on the rez and the other two in the top as exhaust? If I do that it will create a negative pressure in the case with a 200 and 120 intake and 2 120 and a p/p 120 as exhaust? Or put the two 120 in front with 120 in bay and keep p/p and 200 as exhaust?

Which fan setup do you guys think would work best for this case? Negative or positive pressure?

let me know so I can get my game plan together for when I rip it all apart and redo it again

Glad to see everything showed up okay I ran a bunch of distilled through it before I sent it to make sure it still worked/didn't leak. Glad to see it appears to be okay still!

Re: negative vs positive pressure... I'm not totally sold either way on this one. I've done both, although I have never extensively tested and compared either, I haven't noticed a very large difference. All situational though. If you can somehow get that P/P H50 to pull in cooler air from the lower/front of the case, you'll be golden. That doesn't always work as planned, unfortunately.

So, I got finished with a chapter in my Business Law & Ethics class so I decided to do a little work on my rig. I had 4 fans and the power cord for the h50 to sleeve. I hadn't done a fan before, buy after dismantling the extensions I figured it would be easy enough.

Instead of me writing down the pin outs for 3-4 wires I just took a picture that I could refer to.



Good thing about my PSU pin removal tool.... it has two sides, a two prong for the atx power and a single prong for fan power wires. It made my job so simple. Boy this is a long wire.



I taped the prongs of the wires together so it wouldn't snag going through the sleeving.



Then I put two half inch pieces of the heat shrink from Lowe's on it.



Put on the connector and took my lighter to the heat shrink and one fan done!



hrmmm I know I won't be plugging this into a pwm controller.... probably just the fan controller on the case.... or its own header on the motherboard.



Gotta love having a box of random computer crap accumlated through out the years. I had an extra wire that had one of those on it.



No need for the pwm wire at all.... clipped it off where I doubt anyone will ever see it.



Got that one finished then on to the Yate Loons on the H50 radiator. These ones had the 3/4 adapter built in!!!! There is no way I could have that. How was I going to sleeve it?



I know....I'll just cut off the wire heading to the 4 pin molex adapter!





Woohoo! it worked and looks good too.



Fourth fan done for the night! I still have one more in the case right now to do. It's currently all black so I may not do it if I can find a place to completely hide it.



OK now on to the hard one. The power wire for the H50. Wires were twisted together rather tight. I decided to leave them that way (huge freaking mistake).





Here is how I managed to tape the pins together for easier sleeving and no snagging. Notice how I staggered them a little to cut down on the size of the bundle.



Here is where the mistake is noticed..... Here I am 30 minutes in the sleeving of this one wire!!!!



An hour later I am finally at this part.... I cut one piece of heat shrink at half inch and the other I cut extremely long so it would cover the wire all the way into the pump housing. I didn't want to take the pump apart, so I finally got to use my hair-dryer.



While I was uploading from my SD card I noticed I never got a pic of the finished pump wire. So I had to pull the box out of my closet and get the pump back out to snap a shot. doing so caused an air-bubble.... I think I got it out... but will probably run it for about 10 minutes before installing tomorrow.



So far my plan for tomorrow.

1. wake up and curse Blizzard for taking WoW offline for a patch....
2. watch a movie
3. get the kids up and feed them
4. probably keep them in the high chairs and start working (we will see what the wife says)
5. Install the H50, re-configure the fans, re-do the cable management.
6. Enjoy the silence (yes that song!)

The stock heatsink in my Corsair Heaven is making it sound like Hell. I can't wait to put that thing back in its box when I am done with it. I would normally trash it, but I might sell the chip later on.

Ok. Well I failed at step 1 & 2 WoW wasn't taken offline so I've been leveling my rogue. The kids are up and getting fed right now. As soon as it's nap time I will begin my work. Wife has a dentist appointment so I might get some video. It will be quiet in the house, except for the two year old playing in his room.

So I have some good news and some bad news..... Good news is that I got everything in the computer..... bad news.... I'm done

It's been a wild wonderful ride these past few weeks getting this thing all put together

These are not the final pictures that I will be putting up.... I will get some more done one day.

The first thing I did was unplug everything from the motherboard and then remove the stock heatsink. I then removed the bracket, it was a simple process.... remove four screws and grab the backplate before it fell.



I was scared that the bracket usmcz included wouldn't fit. But I was worrying for no reason. Notice the thermal paste is still gooey. I had just unplugged the rig and walked it over to my table to work on it.









Here is the bracket taken off and put back together for future resale of the board if I chose to do it.



Here is the H50 bracket in place. Another easy process. Hold the backplate in place and line up the front. Then about 2-3 rotations of the screw as it needs to be loose to install the H50, (I did not know that at the time)



The first wire I start with in cable management is the 24-pin. I ALWAYS start with that one. It is the hardest to tuck and once in place its a great guide for the other cables.



Here is about 30-40 minutes into the process. As I said its easy to use the 24-pin as a guide and it makes things look nice and tidy.



The final product.....another 30-40 minutes later. And this whole time I am missing playing my Rogue or Death Knight!



And the only wires not sleeve that can be seen are the front panel connections. I couldn't figure out how to get wires out of the connectors. I tried for about 5 minutes but I didn't want to break any of them and kill my functionality of the 5 USB and one useless firewire port.

Yeah I need one more black cable to hide that one....I'll find one somewhere in this house. I'm down to 26 Celcius under load.... even though I don't know if that is right. Going to let the TIM set for a week then test again.

man this build is looking nice. I vote that you should replace the tubing on that with some blue tubing or something. See if you can find some tubing that light blue color.
post #130 of 398
Yo dawg I heard you like Corsair. So I put a Corsair (PSU) in your Corsair (Case) so you can enjoy the Corsair (RAM) while watching the Corsair (CPU Cooler).... Wait what?

Nice build btw ^_^
