I want to use four pumps just for aesthetical reasons.
They have no sense at all.
Everyone seems upset you have 4 pumps. You should add a fifth.
I would do that, but there isnt enough space.
I'm very proud to announce a new Sponsor of this project.
Big thanks for supporting this project with 32GB Cras memory.
It starts with a nice packaging which has a very good feel of the surface.
Opening the box the heavy moduls come to the fore.
Take a look at that surface
on the board:
I'm so happy, I think they match perfect.
Small progress on the fans.
2. change the decals:
All 15 Noisblocker fans done.
Big update soon.
The milling is done.
Tomorrow I'll start assembling.
Looking forward to the installation of that
Thats done. But I dont want so show you yet.
I got the waterplate on friday, so I started cutting the case.
therefor I printed the final design and transfered the cutting edges and drill holes to to the Caselabs tray.
Before starting to cut with the angle grinder, another part must be removed.
Therefor I just need to drill some rivets.
The rough cuttings were done using the angle grinder, small cuts by Dremel.
last step: final shaping by using some files.
I also give it a try in the case, fits very well and looks pretty cool.
I continued with a provisional mount of everything.
Mounted the motherboard tray again:
Tets fit of the four D5 pumps:
The first tubes were easy, tubes for pumps and VGAs are just straight tubes, much more demanding were the curved tubes:
If I just bent the tubes with my tool, the radius is too big, I had to improvise with bending by hand and things I've found:
After a few attempts...
After that I dissambled everything to assamble the waterplate itself
Test with Mayhems Pastel White
Leaktest for 20h, seems to leak out .
Yesterday I polished the tubes and today I shiped them to a get nickel plated.
Thats it for now
Those are some of the only tuberuns i have ever seen that i can agree upon! Very simplistic, neatly done, and doesnt get in the way of ram or other parts...
And i like the overkill factor with the 4 pumps, that looks bad ass!
Looking forward to new updates
This is like a movie, but someone said you can't watch anymore and you have to wait for the end. While you are waiting you're biting your finger nails and screaming GIVE ME MOOOOOORE!
More updates pleeeeeeaseee!
Hehe, thank you guys.
I got my tubes back from nickel plating, it is sooo shiny
I give them a final polish and assembled it.
pictures of that will follow the next days.
Are you ready for some hardware porn?
its all about the details, who can spot it?
more details on the graphics cards:
and some more random pictures
For the cable management I used some custome cable combs. Of course made by Gosumodz.
If you are at the Gamescom in Cologne at the moment, you can visit the booth of Mifcom to take a look at this project.
Some more work in progress in pics will follow.
Amazing love the sma8s and more specifically yours. Love to see more pics of that custom pass thru plate.
I've finished this project the last days.
Thanks for following.
