    Ah, no worries, Mate, will keep you guys posted - there's a fair bit to do to have it finish up the way I would like it, especially wrt piping, which will change altogether :)

    Chat laters.

    Heya Guys,
    Tweaking the system a little - a wise man once said no project log is ever complete :(

    Well, I just got a very decent GFX card waterblock from a Mate second hand (thanx Stelios), but in very good condition - it is a Watercool Heatkiller 4870X2 LT. To be honest, I am not to mad about this full-cover waterblocks for such big cards, as there are obvious compromises, but let's not get into that for now. It is a very sexy block, and will very much simplify my gfx waterloop, and help me cut down on a few of those BitsPower fittings I have used in this loop - the fewer, the better (less flow-resistance)

    Here's a link to the Heatkiller 4870X2 LT

    I will need to get new thermal tape of appropriate thickness, as there's supposed to be 2 different ones used with this block - and will probably fit this on the weekend. Pics will follow, and hopefully I can "rewire" the loop to be more pleasing to the eye. Let's see how it turns out, will keep you posted.

    Hello Everyone,
    So much has happened since my last update.

    @ Burnout21: A good friend in the USA CNC'ed me a high-quality front-panel, as per my Acad drawing a page or so back.....pics to follow in the next update.

    Well, finally, I have found the ideal reservoir for this case, the just-released Koolance RP-401X2.

    It will fit in my single 5.25" drivebay, and what's better, I can use my 2x DDC pumps in serial mode, all integrated, for a very nice and compact, but extremely powerful watercooling system. I posted pics of the dual DDC Watercool top some time ago, and I am currently running them in the loop anyway, with quite a few changes since I posted pics last.

    I will receive the new bay-res hardware, including new TMS-200 controller, TMS-EB200 Expansion board, and INS-FM18 Flowmeter, mid next week, and mount this all on the weekend.

    I opted for the TMS-200, as I have the mCubed T-Balancer bigNG currently, but, to be honest, the (lack of) proper software under Win7-64 is giving me the shits. So, it's gotta go, probably relocating it to the Wife's system.

    This HP Blackbird setup has been running watercooled for the past 2 years, so everything is in place, just need to mount this new compact res/pumps combo. Please check back for an update next weekend, you won't be disappointed :)

    Well with the last post being from 2009, I'd think *something* would have happened to the case, lol! :D

    That being said, I'm looking forward to see how this evolves further and the case is awesome, so keep it up! :)
