Spending to much time on the drawings and other things.
Time to get back to the build.
A few weeks ago i was checking the voltages from my PSU with a tool and sudenly feel that something was wrong the way i connected things up. I quickly pulled a few wires from the tester.
The cables where realy hot . Without noticing i made a loop and headed all up.
Afterwards i checked the 12V rail and found out that it was 10,6V instead of 12V. Grrrr. So as a spare i have a Lepa G-1600.
The Lepa was ment to be for my TH-10 ressurection build but i need it now. Dont have buckets of cash to get a new Thermaltake 1200.

Thinking about it i first want to make a diagram from the pinout because this
Psu has more power and more 12V rails.

Start with the tubing.

I dont know if i mention it befor but i want to change the tubing from 16 mm Acrylic to 16mm Mayhem Glass tubing.
Something i did not do befor . The bending of Borrosilicate Glass Tubes.
So the plan is to make the most of the tube in Acrylic and try to finish the build.
When it is up and running i start with chaging out the Acrylic for Glass tubing.

I know i lost to much time and now i have to change parts and spec because that.
So instead of making a drawing for a cutting table for the Borosillicate Glas tubing i start with bending Acrylic tubing.

Sadly i can not get the tubing fitting in the Bitspower Fitting so i use the EK Compression fittings.

P1 - i used the Monsoon kit for the 16mm Acrilic tube.
Before i was able to use the mandrells i had to redrill the holes to 5mm.

P2. i used a auticad raster drawing to draw the s-tube before i bend the tube.

P3. First tube in "had to dismount the res standard befor i couth mount the tube. So first in and the next wil be a straight Mayhem 16mm Borosillicate tube.

P4. I made from 2 tube standards that i made earlier a mounten bracket for my dremel. I bought eralier a few 50mm diamn cutters "10 x 50mm for the prise of 1 x 38mm disk".
Tommorow i want to make a cover shield for cutting the glass tube.

I hope to post more updates the next week.

Working on the tubing of the game side of the desk.

Wiring connectors \ wiring connectors "what to do first".
I set up my mind to work on the tubing in the back.
16mm Acrylic where fore i got 4 more boxes of EK-EKWB HDC fittings this week. So 24 more Fittings available for installation.
As soon as i started to use the Bitspower Black Sparckle fittings i noticed that the tread are not cleaned. The came out of my Hill 7.9 build.
So i spend more then a hour cleaning the fittings before i couth start putting them back in the build again. The cleaning payed off. The shine and are like new again.
I made yesterday evening a new drawing for the loop because i swapt the in and outport of the cpu. "my mistake". Now that i have a new setup for the loop whe can go further with the build.
The Window frames are temporary of the build because i need much access to the back for installing and testing.

P 1 "the loop of the gaming side"i just changed that part , To other part have to wait until i change to the server side.
P2 and 3 Cleaning the connectors
P4 Aquacomputer High Flow Sensor back into the build.
P5 first tube ± 90cm 16mm tubing in
Last P from a distance.

Tommorow morning i will finish the last 3 tubes to make and to mount on this side. Then the loop is almost complete. And i can start working on the wiring from the Aquacomputer D5 pomps with usb and Aquabus.

Almost finished "one more tube to bend".

A patient job.
I lubricate the neopreen cord with a drip off in warm water.
This way the cord slide easier in to the 16mm Acrylic tube.
The tube i already had for over one year stored in my modcave.
I was thinking about the tube "where did i get it from". Lucky the bill is still on the package so easy if i need more . 6 x 1,5mr left.
I think it will be enough!.

Bending the acrylic is easy to do with the heatgun and the Monsoon mandrell.
A little bit to big is no problem.

Lunch is over so it is back for the last tube on this side.

16-03-2019 Updating the software of the Aquaero's 6 XT with the suite software

I dont know if in 2013 you also had to installed a component before the software showed on the screen.
But this time the new software was installed but dont started like i thought it had to.
I connect with a spare psu and a usb cable the Aquero to the system downstairs.
Now the Aquasuite opens.

All the software of the Aquaero's are outdated.
Time to update them and to register them in a book so i can recognize them in the desk. "there are 4 off them in the desk 2 x 6 Pro and 2 x 6 XT.

2-4 Aquaero 6 XT New frontcovers.

I moved 2 of the 4 Aquero's to the back of the desk. For this i had to do a modifications in the back "cutting a few holes". And i also made 2 new frontcovers for them.
This looks nicer.

So after a long day i placed the frontcover.

03-04-2019 Backcover for the Aquaero's 6 XT are finished.

I am happy with the frontcovers but not so with the way it looks at the back.
So i thought lets make a few back covers.
I made a CAD drawing and after that the toolpaths for my cnc router.
The first one just fit over the coolingblock but not over the print plate.
It is just 0,1mm. I changed the drawing and the toolpaths again and made a new one.
Grrrrrrrrrrr. The offset must be outwards and not inwards.
I dont give up that easy.
The backcovers are finished and tommorow i will paint them matt black.

04-04-2019 Backcover for the Aquaero's pianted and mounted.

The paint dries in 10 min.
I had to make the mounting holes a bit bigger.
This way i can move all the parts in place.

Together with cleaning up the modcave and the cnc machine my day is almost gone.
I start again tommorow.

07-04-2019 Small update.

I turned the desk because it is more easier to work at the back.
I am lloking at the desk and think that i remove the ITX and place there one of my other systems in.
The Asus Rampage IV Extreme Black Edition with the i7 - 3960X and the Bitspower waterblock on it.
So the right side is going to be my work and render side and the left my game side.

I also cut the insertpanel in half to be able to get under the mb-tray without having the mb removed. I already did this on the other side.

11-04-2019 New pressure rings for the Aquacomputer D5 pomps in my Bitspower double Pomptops.

I made a while ago new pressureplates for the D5 pomps but now that i have my cnc router and i am working on my desk it is time to skip the old plates and make a few new ones.
With the pressure rings finished i am already planning the next job "main power cable for the pomps"and then shorten the pomp cables and sleeving them.

Just two pictures today.

Drawing and building it. Waiting for more pocket money "doing extra shifts", doing to many multiple things at one time. Building my own cnc router.
But yes i did, Now that i am retired from the firebrigade i have more time to make parts on my router.

I know the base is great but the system outdated for the parts that are now on the market.
Still working on it.

17-04-2019 Rewiring the Aquacomputer D5 pomps and sleeving them.

One offtopic. "had to let my dog down 15-04 after 17,9 years so the build was on a slower paste then i wanted".
Today i have to do something .

I wanted the new sleeved wire with no headshrink so my plan was to make the wire holes bigger and put new sleeved wire in.

what i did was:
- remove the backplate of the pomp "happy it is not glued on";
- soldering out the old wiring;
- cut off 40 40 off from the old wiring to make a new powercable;
- crimpt the new cable;
- sleeved the new cable;
- made the 2 existingholes at the right size for the new sleeved cables;
- solder the wires back into the pomp;
- tested the pomps with Aquasuite version 2018.

Ni big problems doing this small mod.
One thing watch out if you work on the backplate that you dont wreck the flexible print cable between the backplate and the pomp.

Hallo people,

3-9-2019 took a wrong turn for me.
My mother in law died sudenly of a hart attack in France while my father in law was in hospital to get his second peacemaker.
My father in law was then 81 and has Alzheimer and couth not look after himself.
So whe took him to holland. To give him shelter i had to scrap my desk to make room for a bed.
Six months later he went in a eldery home because whe couth not help (progress Alzheimer).
Now my father in law is out of my modcave the desk is gone.
I am rebuilding Singularity beast II and thinking about a new deskbuild.

So i guess this build came to an end.
Thanks for you support and comments.
