I think the copper block would stand out but it does not really go with the color scheme so far so not sure if I would change it out. Looking good so far. Keep it up and were waiting on MOAR updates!

I'm going to keep the block as it is for the time being, would still like the copper Raystorm though, just spent way to much already for now

Small Update


I've spent the last few days cutting, filing and sanding all the panels ready for painting, took loads of pictures and didn't realise I hadn't put a memory card in the camera

...so sadly not much to show.

The new panels have had their first coat of primer now, here's a little taster:







Tomorrow I'll be doing a final sand of all the panels then more primer.

A Little Update

All the panels are now painted so I can start assembling tomorrow. I'll set up proper lighting then and take some decent pictures but I'm really pleased with how this bit turned out so couldn't resist posting a quick pic:





The paint has come out great, just needs polishing now.

Very quick update[/B]

Had a hell of a day putting bits of this together today, one of those ones where if it can go wrong it will

Anyway, overcome most problems and will post more pics probably tomorrow once I have lighting again (both white light bulbs blew today).



The motherboard is all plumbed in now, with a bit of luck tomorrow the loop will be finished and I can test it.

If that goes well I can start fitting fans/switches/front DVD connection/wiring/etc/etc..........
(will be finished one day)

Looks good so far

In case you hadn't noticed, I am actually making a mod based on R4, which goes on nearly the same name (Redefine R4). I didn't copy it from you though..

Keep up the good work mate, subbed.
PS. Love the zen of your mods outlook

Thanks very much and good luck with your build.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I've had a small delay due to a change in living arrangements. We now have much more space but the house needed modding

Most rooms are now finished apart from my new office/video studio for which the parts will be here for later this week. This PC is being built for this purpose (need it for work).

I also have a new DSLR arriving this week (went for a Canon 600d due to its great video capability's) so should be able to get some good shots once the studio is finished as it has permanent photo lighting set up.

With a bit of luck I should be updating this thread in around 10 days. I'll probably try the new video studio out at the same time and post a video update although it will be unedited as the editing will be done on this build.

In the future it would notable to remember you dont need to run the RPM wire (yellow) on all of the fans. Since youre using a fan controller its no biggie, but if you were to run those off a mobo header the signal would get confused and the reading would be useless.

Wow nice mods there, I really like how you manage the fan controller, the PSU, and the reservoir.

Also the dark colors look nice in the overall project.

Update 30/10/2012 - Water Loop Finished

I've had a little time the past few days to get on with this build and at last the water loop is complete. The thing is there are so many joins in this loop I thought I'd better take some photos and get this update posted before I fill it with water

This is the view in the top bay with the front off:



The T piece coming from the top of the rad is a bleed port to make filling and draining easier. This sits nicely on the top next to the fill port:



coming down from the T is the return pipe back to the res:





The res is an Alphacool and below is a Lamptron FC6 fan controller. Below the FC6 and barely visible in this pic are the backs of the two LCD temperature displays, one showing the air temp and the other the water.

The pipe on the left leads down to the pump in the bottom of the case:



The pump is hardly visible in the pic, the two fittings in the middle are the inlet and outlet though. From the pump the loop attaches to the bottom rad then out the top and into another T fitting. The right side of this fitting houses the water temperature sensor, the other outlet to the bottom of the motherboard. There is also a drain port at the bottom.



The loop starts in the bottom right of the picture going to the first motherboard block, then to the CPU, then the second M/B block and finally the GPU's. I originally had the GPU's in serial but swapped it over to parallel to make the loop a little less restrictive. Actually I just preferred the look of it this way.

The loop then leaves the GPU's and travels into the top chamber and back to the rad.







That's it for now - time to fill it up

Quick Update - First Boot

After filling the loop two nights ago and testing it for a day I decided to wire it up to see if it actually works. Thankfully it does and I'm really pleased with it.

Its only running at stock speeds at the moment but these are the temps so far:





The rig has been on for a few hours and I've run Prime95 for an hour where the CPU temperature peaked at 45 degrees (as you can see in the pic) so pretty happy with the temps so far. This was with the rad fans on as low as they will run and completely silent.





For ease I wired it up using the stock corsair cables but I like the way they look with this build so may keep it this way. I'm waiting for some LED's to arrive for the lighting, once these are here and fitted I'll fit the case fans and shrouds.



Then its just ordering the side panels and a few finishing touches. I held of ordering the sides until it was all together to make sure my measurements from drawings were exact.

I'll update again once the LED's and fans are fitted - hopefully within a week

Wow Lovely Mod, do you not think the SLi bridge needs some black film on it too though. (might be my OCD kicking in). Great Job though.

Def not OCD (although I think most modders are a little OCD) the SLi will have a black aluminium cover to match.
