First of all, subbed! Second, after seeing the pic of that case all wide open I am falling deeply in love with it too... Keep up the great work, man!! I'lll be following.

The case is epic. I mean for 99$ it's impossible to beat. The Luxe is basically it's all metal brother for 150$. It is just well thought out, the fact that you can pretty much take the entire chassis apart with screws instead of rivets is brilliant.

I'm running into routing problems as of now, heat sinks getting in the way certain angles not necessarily lining up..etc. Though i might just end up bending some tubing. Was trying to go with a lot of straight runs.

Well had to reconfigure. And am going to need more angle fittings. This is one reason that i like acrylic yes harder than regular tubing but there isn't much bending can't accomplish and that bending doesn't put strain on the parts.

Some dimensions i didn't account for but i'm basically just not going to have as many straight runs as i wanted. We're going to have some waves lol.
Pics of the changes made.


Making modifications to the drain valve as well. Putting together more angle fittings to order.

Well i just brought home my 780 classy i got from dragon sine i'm waiting on thermal pads for the 7970 yet again. Figured i'll keep it in there. Got it tubed up started leak testing then realized that i had the pump inlet and outlet backwards. So that required disassembly. Then got it back together sort of in a hurry. Hell i've not been taking my time which i know i should be but haven't slept in 26 hours and just want to get it going.

Got it running and had leaks in three different places i've sorted two of them out. The Bitspower mounting clamps suck dick as the reservoir slides down in it, less i'm just not strong enough to clamp it to the level it needs to be at. The reservoir was putting pressure on the fittings leading to the pump and some of the fittings were leaking. That and the bottom lid of the reservoir seemed to be leaking, due to the same because the mounts aren't holding the damn thing.

The top fitting going from the CPU block back to the reservoir is leaking, which i'm going to check the tubing on it to be 100% sure it's the fitting and not my tubing job.

Overall i would say it's a little bit of a rough start but a learning experience. Tubing was more curvy than i had wished.

I put a rubberband around the res and used it as a rubber insert to stop it from sliding. Changed the fitting out this morning too no leaks so far going to keep watching it. I cut some of the tubing that was going from the CPU to res. The Tubing was too long putting stress on the fitting... my fault. Got some bubbles in the loop but that's expected. I'll bleed it properly once i've gone 24 hours without leaks, i guess. The splatter is probably from the way i filled it.

10612596_10203038996157585_7332949254625198675_n.jpg?oh=bcd7952b6f8515105dc942464bf13254&oe=54DF4D56

Though i've felt somewhat pushed because i have all this WC stuff and am wanting to get back into shooting competition i must say i love the way it looks. I might go regular tubing on my main rig come December or january. Splitting up the 780s and putting one in my backup keeps me from having to mod my 800D so heavily also.

Was up 30hrs from 3pm friday till 9pm yesterday. Wore myself out working on that thing, but it seems to be going lol. A little nervous about shaking it to bleed it if it does pass leak testing.

Right when i cut it off this morning i had a leak on one of the stop caps at the bottom of the res. Tightened it and while wiring it up kept the looping going with the other psu turning it on and off for a couple of hours. No leaks, it wouldn't harm anything if it does leak since it will hit the pump top but going to watch it closely all night and probably jump the PSU off again and run it all night.

I don't think i realized that i would want an cathode. Lol With the tinted window of the Enthoo you can't see crap. I just have the side panel off at the moment. HDD is louder than the system lol
