My camera battery died in the middle of snapping pics, hahaha. So here's a few shots of my sleeving adventures! tongue.gif




Here's the rads all wired together! I needed some fan plug extensions, which are being shipped from Paulwuzhere, so the bottom two on each rad would reach. I didn't want to cut the wires and solder them longer just for simplicity sake, lol. Also, the extensions mean I can keep the original fan wires' lengths the same if I ever want to reuse them in another application. Anyhoo though, man this looks so much cleaner and organized.





Close up of the sleeving. *drooling*





And here's the last shot I got of the wires before the camera died. These are the front panel power switch, molex power for cathode power box, and an extension for one of the lights.

One of Syr's old flying monkey butlers came and told me this was nearly done smile.gif

Brilliant work resurrecting a work of art. I'm liking the hardware choice too thumb.gif

So... there I was at repo's house holding a Z68 motherboard in one hand and kinda spinning it like a basketball and talking to him when I look down and I am doing this over Silentium... I promptly quit doing that and didn't walk near the case the rest of the day haha.

Seeing the system with the 2 480 rads was an awesome experience. Syrillian's craftsmanship could not have been better and Repo is doing a great job with the build. I can not wait to see it completed. Everyone who can make it to quakecon needs to even if its just to see it done.

Lol, yea, totally means we're going steady now. I got the loop assembled last night (as mentioned), and today I put water in it and started leak testing. I'll have pics up for everybody today! Tonight, I'm going to take my PSU out and begin the final wiring/etc. I can at least get this i7 booted up and going (hopefully) tomorrow and get most of the wiring done. I still need fan extensions for some of the front fans, but with 2x480 rads, I think I can afford to have one or two fans off without losing temps, lol.

Yeah when you have 2 X 480 mm Radiators for a single GPU and a first gen i7, I think that you are pretty much ok with running no fans lol. All jokes aside, I wouldn't be surprised if the cases negative or positive pressure was enough airflow through those beasts of radiators to keep the system cooled off at least a little bit. I can't wait until you boot that puppy up man. I'm so ready to hear that nerd porn in the form of a P.O.S.T. lol.

Update to end all updates (up to this point at least). I have assembled the water loop and have leak tested it! I'll be taking my PSU and hdds out of the Phantom 820 tonight and start the wiring. So, I should have this puppy fired up and booted tomorrow! Quakecon is in 11 days, so I really need to get my butt in gear! In this update, I show you guys all the sleeving I've been doing, some case wiring, and setting up the water loop!! This is part 1 of 2.




Old light sleeving and new sleeving.

DSC09136.jpg




Sleeved water pump and motherboard/gpu fans. Man, sleeving the fans makes them look SO much better. Dang you Lutro0, now I have to sleeve everything I own. Sleeved phone cords, sleeved pc fans, sleeved cat, sleeved bookshelf. tongue.gif
DSC09141.jpg




DSC09142.jpg




The biggest fan will be on the gpu VRMs, the medium one will be mobo NB, and the smallest fan is mobo VRMs.
DSC09143.jpg




Here's the VRMs on the gpu. Notice the two holes on the top right and bottom left? Those line up just perfectly with the fan I wanted to put there. So zipties FTW! biggrin.gif
DSC09144.jpg




Ta-dah!
DSC09145.jpg




And the fans hooked up on the mobo! Mmmm, so sexy!

Running the smallest fan wire under the mobo. smile.gif

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. lachen.gif





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. smile.gif 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.
