Lots of "gadgets" you have inside that "little devil"

I'm liking all the work, too bad you didn't realize the noisy filter before, that would have saved some time! I will take note and try everything before drilling the case everywhere

Any chance to change the yellow for the sensors?
I'd recommend black for example, that will "hide" well inside, and since all your sleeving is multicolor (non black) it will be easy to find anyways

What is that Dremel extra you have there? (that pillar)

Keep it up, the fast updates are really welcome ^^

Yes...thanks for reminding...
Fortunately i hadn't drilled anywhere just made a braket which is now useless...

I choosen Yellow on purpose so they contrast with the generally "dark" colours of the inside. I understand some may not like this choice...

The Dremel accessory is a drill column that you can find if you look on Dremel.com; it allows to drill vertically and many other things...

I update as i move on, only issue i'm running out of pics sapce hosted by OCN......mmm

So i took it out of its braked and moved it all possible orientations

The bastard makes a lot of noise when vertically oriented ..stupid me that realize it now...aftr spending quite a time to drill out my braket so what now
First of all, awesome build you have here. Been following the log I was going to pick up one of those filters you have, but just wanted to ask you if it still makes some noise when mounted horizontally? If so, can you hear it more than your AP-15's?

Here is the assembly of the Graphic section, curtesy of two AMD 6970 XFIRE

First we need to remove the stock cooler which is pretty easy by unskrewing it from the bottom of the PCB...you remove all skrews that gently pull it off...and MIND the fan cable that is headed on the PCB as well, you need to unplag it with a small skrewdriver or your fingers if u manage that

Than we might wanna clean all the surfaces for appling new TIM to those

IMG_0625.JPG

Clean the Chipset, the RAM modules, the VRM (where termal strips where laid). There are two one at the back is an array and another one is at top of PCB near the connectors section

IMG_0628.JPG

Than we apply a thin layer of TIM on Chip and RAM modules that we cleaned before

IMG_0629.JPG

The Aquacomputer AquagrATIx is shiny isn't it ! biggrin.gif

IMG_0630.JPG

and finally two strips of thermal pads on the VRM and we are set

IMG_0631.JPG

Now lay down slowly the Full cover Waterblock and turn the PCB and the WB upside down so you can skrew it in place. MIND to align them well before you turn it

IMG_0634.JPG

IMG_0635.JPG

IMG_0636.JPG

If you did things right the thrmal pads will be trapped under the WB. As said one is at at back (the array)

IMG_0637.JPG

and one at front (single one)

IMG_0638.JPG

IMG_0639.JPG

That's it !

No no...wait... we need the mate

IMG_0641.JPG

mmm...now ?
we need to mte them right ? Let's take the Aquacomputer TwinX indeed...smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif

IMG_0643.JPG

with some VERY careful handling of the sealing rings, here thay come

Mounting of the (deep) top RAD...well shall be piece of cake isn' it ?
Herr well No it isn't...

So my plan was to munt it with fans on top in pull (which apparently as many say around is the best arrangement)
...but not a good idea...see why
that way the RAD is all way down and its fittings kinda interfere with the back exhaust (which is intake for me..) FAN



Bottom line the RAD goes in in push mode...but at least let's make sure it is fully saeled around
I selaed the top of it (phe part that contact with the case roof i mean) and also inserted some strips of sealing where i noticed the FAN had left some gap between them

...at the RAD border


...between them


mounted it with the sensor in between the RAD fins (yes it is the yellow sleeve as all other sensors are)


connected to one of my 3xFAN headers (shown in prev posts) to a LAMPTRON FAN ctrl and give it a shot...all fine, air flow is very good and strong as i move the tag to the end. No air flow aywhere else...al sealed and ok, have gap from the fittings this way all seams where it shall be





One note on the XSPC painting - in one world it is P.O.S. !
It comes away so easy that you shall awoid to keeping your eyes at the same spot for more than 5 secs or the paint will go away...unbelievable...

Let's move ahead and put in place the CPU Waterblock - the Aquacomputer Kryos Copper HF (standing for HighFlow)

First we need to remove the giant (and well performing) HR-02 heatsink (curtesy of the really good folks at thermalright - they always keep delivering great gear ! really great stuff from them)



put the pump engine in its place at the bottom over its wooden brick (you seen it beore...)



now we have to mount the retaining gasket of the WB in those 4 holes in the mobo...



...let's see how it works first; open it up to check what we get (you never know)



please note that black rubber pad (will see that after...why)

line them up so the army is ready for the invasion



mmm so that rubber gasket we said...yes the manual say to put it over the mobo back and than with the 2 mm spacers you'r done...not really man!
The mobo has already a peace of metal back to the retain of the cpu if you put that rubber crap on top of it you get far away...too far
we need to cut it out so it goes aside the retain pad and still does its insulation job (just an addtional safety...not really mandatory...but ok lat's go overkill)

So i need to cut out the inner part of it that is redundant, see this...recalls anything ?!



now job can work let's put pad, spacers, skrews and here it comes



see that it is aligned by the already present cpu retain plate (which has three knots in a triangular shape)



and now we have the damn 2 mm ! folks update your material list ! at aquacomputer and docs too pls!



the plate is in place now let's move to the other side of mobo...more work expects us...



the 4 columns are in place as you see...let's put some TIM and let the kyros slice in over the columns...MIND to align them to the shape of the kyros legs holes

few more springs, skrew, turn it to the end till the springs evenly are set tight and here it comes the beauty



one more (so nice) isn't it ?!

ok now let's connect things for a dry (well wet...) run still just pump no power to mobo etc...



let's it run few hours...ok seems all good no leaks ...let's go in field than

cable it to the psu, one more check ok let's press the power on for the live test (yust CPU 4 now...) i still miss the bottom section (i'm waiting some material though..)



water is flowing, see the filter window hereafter...



filer is the latest folk to bleed, pump takes 3 mins, filter 2 hours...but finally it is silent as well...even the tiny bubbles let it ruble a bit...but it is nice you feel the water is going through...

Let's set the fans at low rate with the Lamptron (hei Shoggy where is the Aquaero5 ??!!!...)



and see temp inside the rad is very close to ambient (around 3 degs more)

Let's see the inside of the LittleDevil...





red flames man!! shall be very hot in there...

...no no it isn't. Quite opposite it's damn cold

even in Prime95 torture test the CPU temp never goes above 39 celsius ( i had 60 this afternoon with air coller)...pretty nice
When it is unloaded CPU sets around 25-26 Celsius





Last pic is the filter close up...with a tiny bubble still trying to resist the river of water the mighty pumps are throwing at it



That's it for now...stay tuned

Really nice work going on there.
Love the cable management so far, the only thing that is looking strange is the placemente of the flow meter, could you try to cover it with some custom built panel?

Your build progress is great, it will be finished soon (well, AQ5 will hold it back, right? )

If you need a place to upload pics try imgur.com, works great!

BTW, really love the pump placement, it fits as if it was stock option with the case (with fan behind to keep it cool aswell ) maybe i could get that idea if i don't like how it look on the middle section

This is so in-depth, and it looks so good. This is a great log, and I can tell that you really care about making this thing perfect because of all of the intricacies...inspiring. @.@
