Soulpatch Some minor re-work because the green/purple wasn't working due to the washed out purple led's. So switched to clear tubing and moved a few things around. Finally got around to doing the monitor screen. It's a 3x5" screen mounted to some 3/16" acrylic that I put about a 25 degree bend in. No the screen isn't cracked, just needs to be cleaned. Have a new pwm 60mm VRM fan that I'm mounting as well. The stock one sits to the left about 1" to far so only half is blowing on vrm. So new mount and fan...besides I wanted a pwm so it'll be a bit quieter most of the time. Corsairs came in and mounted those to the radiator. Still thinking about adding a small 100mm reservoir for the extra volume since it'll run a bit cooler. But even under load it rarely gets above 40C. Although it's still not over-clocked yet lol

Soulpatch Nice build, like the box look, since it gives it that "machine" style of build. The cylinder reservoirs look pretty cool but the box is "old school" from my gen of water cooling. Kind of like a throwback to the stone age lol. For us it was easier to build a box, than find an acrylic tube to thread on. Stuff was stupid money back then.

Looks like your soft tubing from the reservoir is kinked. Also you have a demon living on top of the case.
Show some respect to the 1980s ceiling light.

But yeah I have a coil on it now taking the kink out.

Yeah it's just a drain line that goes to a ball valve. It actually goes to my pass through port on the front of the case. It's also on a rotary 90 so I just rotate it to face backwards to keep it out of sight.

Fluxmaven That kinked tube immediately jumped out at me as well. I'm assuming it's just a drain line that gets folded away when not in use though.

On the topic of cable management you could probably get a roll of velcro ties and some braided cable wrap to quickly and cheaply tidy up the psu compartment.


Yeah I have a whole bunch if the Velcro rolls, I’ll tidy it up at some point. I was more in a rush of getting it working.

The idea of a plate is interesting I might look into that. Thanks for the idea
