Post update to end all updates (currently) 2 of 2.
Case wiring begins. Trying to figure out how to run the molexs for lights and fan controllers, etc.
Here's how I ended up doing the fan controllers and the left side CCFL light power.
I also wired up one of my Yate Loon low-speeds into the hdd rack.
The beginnings of the water loop. Loop goes pump>rad 1>rad 2>cpu block>gpu block> res>pump.
I took the side windows off to give me some breathing room. Otherwise, it's nigh impossible to get the rads hooked up and everything fitted.
Backside with the res.
This is how I originally had the drain plug set up. However, it hit the bottom fan on the rad. So what I had to do was take the 90 degree fittings off the rads and use one on the pump to kick the tubing straight up into the rad.
Here's what it ended up being. I know the tubing on the ball-valve looks excessive, but it's long enough that the drain plug reaches the end of the case with the front panel/door barely opened. I didn't want to have to have someone else hold the door wide open so I could access the drain plug. Also, no thatsapenis.gif references here.
Here's how the rads ended up being plumbed together.
And it was barely enough clearance from the mobo tray. Thank heavens for this tight-bending Primochill tubing, hahaha.
And here's everything all hooked up with the front panel on!
I tried my hardest to get some shots of the case with the lighting. But it's so difficult to get a good shot with it. I'm going to seriously contact a friend witha DLSR camera to see if I can actually get some decent, and accurately colored, shots of this case. For now, you'll have to drool over the pics I took with my point and shoot.
Suffice to say, it is beautiful
with all the lights on. The red just glimmers through the clear Primochill tubing. It's just really a work of art. I fathom to see how Syr could just look at a pile of acrylic and see just a gorgeous build as this sitting somewhere in it.
