Why are you going with 3 loops for?
Just a total waste. The temperature difference in any part of you loop will likely be 1-2 degrees at the max.
On my system I don’t even see a degree if difference and I have sensors on ever port

Looking Good!

Great work so far! I have a Tower 900 build going as well! Really looking forward to see what you do with this!

Two reasons really...
1- Allows for greater flexibility for future additions
2- cause it looks cool (main reason) lol

In all fairness, I just liked the way it looked. In the past I've had issues with daisy chaining the loops, so I just figured I'd do it this way.
Heck, I might still change it. I'd like to get this done soon, but I'm not rushing it because I still have a decent computer I'm playing on now, but this is going to be a huge upgrade. I'm still up in the air about weather or not I'm going to keep my current system water cooled, or go with an air cooling option. So I might end up throwing one of the rez/pump combos into another case for my old system. So, everything is still a little in the air so-to-speak with that part of it right now.

thanks

I'm a little delayed right now as I ordered the wrong size alum sheet for the back plate (apparently 2" x 24" is not 2' x 24" - must read description better!!!)

I did get my carbon fiber vinyl wrap though, so I'll start on the center console tonight and see if i can get that hammered out.

I've got 2x560mm's w/7980XE & 2080 Ti in my T900, did hardline tubing w/matte finish & TT Plus fittings for RGB on the tubes. Looks really nice. Just can't find the stupid RGB controller I bought for my velocity & vector blocks, may have to order a replacement. Can send pics tonight if you are curious/want any ideas.

I thought about doing hard-line, but I have like $400 in fittings that are sitting there from my previous build, and I just can't justify spending that much more for hard-line fittings and bending kits and all that jazz.

Maybe my next build I'll move on to hard line, but we'll see.

I'd LOVE to see pics of your build

ugh...

Nothing worse than not being able to find a tool(s) that you KNOW you have, but your garage looks like a land mine went off inside it...

Going to have to do a full on garage purge this weekend. Tired of re-buying tools I KNOW I have somewhere...

Side Plates - 'cause I don't know what else to call them....

I was able to finish the side plates where two of my pumps will sit.

The plates are going to be mounted to be level with the inside rim of the case. Not counting the 'air intake' areas kind of like the one on the right side of the picture.

These will be wrapped in the carbon fiber vinyl and... if I'm not too chicken, I'm going to try to do a little cutout design with some frosted white plexi under it that'll glow through the design with the RGB fans and other lighting I'm working on. If I chicken out, the plexi is only going to go over the middle console as that will only require slight modification via a heat gun

I once again... have to make a trip to ACE in the morning to pick up some specialty nuts and bolts so that this will come to life. I seriously hate making extra trips, it just kills way to much time.

Sorry, that's all I got for today as far as updates go...

Till the next mod

Pump Chamber

SOME WORK DONE!!

So nice to actually see your vision coming to life... after SEVERAL trips to Ace for parts (forgotten/wrong size/brain farts etc...) I finally got what I needed and finished up the pump chamber. Everything test fitted and looking pretty dang good if I do say so...

1- After a lot of clean up (and break for chipotle) I started wrapping my disassembled pieces.
2- Wrapping completed, and reassembled the center rack.
3- First test fit, just to make sure everything fit correctly still (you never know)
4 & 5 - Pumps mounted and test fit! Looking so very pretty I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Just waiting on the aluminum and Plexi I ordered to come in, so I can get the backplate and a little of the bling finished out and then it'll be on to actually putting everything together and getting this beast up and running!!

Dry Fitting

Did a quick dry fitting of my water tubing, and realized that I'm short two fittings... TWO!! Ugh.... okay , well I'm not technically short, they're just chrome and not the matte black like the rest of the fittings, so yes I am short of the fittings I need/want.

Thankfully shipping is quick when you buy through amazon. I'll get them tomorrow. I should get the rest of my alum plate, and plexi before the end of the week. Crossing my fingers that my vision actually works with the whole plexi thing.

At least the routing of the tubing is going as planned, and I see no issues with overlap (my main concern) or anything else so far.
