Quick Update, I received everything I ordered from Newegg and I was also going to receive everything from CableOrganizer, but turns out all I got was the heatshrink. The sleeving is missing in action, I've contacted there customer support and I'll receive a call sometime tomorrow.

For the time being, I work on other parts of the build.

Edit: It seems that my sleeving was shipped a few days late and I wasn't informed. The arrival date is May 04, a day before my monitor from dell.

It was a nice round number and I'm also going to have a drain port which adds 3 fittings each loop.

Rather have extra than order more.

Very decent setup.

You may not need all 7 Yate Loons, you wouldn't beleive how effective they are in lower numbers. Especially when using them in conjunction with a water cooled setup. The only reason I mention this is because I use them myself and they are fairly loud at 88CFM. 7 of them would be akin to sitting next to a vacuum cleaner. At any rate you won't be dissapointed, i think youve made some great choices.

I think I'll only use five of them but got a couple extra just in case, I don't plan to run them at full speed either, so that will lower the sound.

So I've been sleeving my power supply and test fitting things trying to get a better idea of how I'm going to have it all fit.

Here are a few pictures of the cable management and sleeving, I still need to adjust some of it, as the case door on the back side wont go back on.

Here is an overdue update:

I have received everything for the build and have been slowly progressing on it.

Here is the table I've been working at and some photos of the tubing, clamps, fittings etc.



Below are photos of the inside of the case, I have everything mounted for testing except the second radiator which I'm trying to figure out a way to mount it.



Lastly just a quick photo of the cables out the back of the case, some still need to be sleeved and managed a bit better.



I'll have more photos as I progress, I currently have more to do such as tubing, sleeving, mounting the radiators, and cable management. Needless to say, I'm slowly getting there.

I would have to agree. It would be a ok place for a secondary radiator. Just depends on whic part of the loop it is. You would be adding heat to the case, eventually the air will become over saturated, and its cooling effects will diminish. I like the direct connections with all you pieces. The short hose runs are going to look wonderful. I would (IMO) run a primary rad on the top of the case. Your cooling an i7, its going to over run that 240. (I think its a 240, cant really tell how long it is. No good picture of it.)

Are you running two separate loops, or are you running one loop with two pumps on low rpm?

Also +rep for the cable management. Individual sleeving. NICE.

I'm running two separate loops the i7 will be on its own TFC 240, (The one mounted on top) as for the second radiator I am currently working on a mounting to raise it up quite a bit and I will have a fan or two pulling in cool air right next to the radiator so the fans on the radiator can pull in cool air as well.

Once I have it set up I post some pictures.

Thanks for the compliment on the cable management took a bit of time and I'm still not done (seen from the back side photos)
