    Oh and I remade the RGB ring adapter plate in flat black, with the correct sized hole. Not posting pics of it in action as the rig sort of looks complete. So I will just wait til I've ironed out all of the BS issues and post the final pics.

    Did this last time I was here.

    Fixed the RGB today. Finished up all of the wiring, apart from the pump. I also made this to cover the panel that gives you access to the wiring.

    As for the GPU? I solved it. Firstly the VRAM is factory overclocked. This would be fine if it was fully tested and worked like that on the air cooler. Only it doesn't. Temps are Borat. Verrrry nice.

    And so is the enormous OC.



    Name that movie for a free kick in the noots.

    I have now fixed the loop. It needs possibly one more thing, will explain at the end.

    No more leaning tower of Bitspower.

    Aura Sync = fail. Yesterday the CPU block started flickering. I thought the LEDs were dead. Turns out that the controller simply cannot handle all of the RGBees. The res started doing it next. So I have gone back to the controller and just found a few modes I like.

    But yeah, between that and Icue not doing what it should either I've lost a lot of hair. Really annoying crap. So now I have red with a white rotational flash. Looks awesome.

    Only took about 30 photos to get the timing right lol. The fix btw was this.

    I've ordered a Barrow one in chrome just like it but I already had that. In the loop. When I began I did not have the chrome 11/8 rotary 90 I bought (there was one left) so I used the black one I already had and that T ball to do another 90. Last night I realised I could use those, so that is now done.

    Which leaves one thing I need to do to the loop. Fit a flow pipe into the res, or, drill a M4 hole in it so I can fill it properly so the coolant doesn't splash and introduce bubbles. There is only one way to avoid it, and that is to use the back port (like, in the back) as the entrance. However, I would have had to cut the entire chassis apart for that. Sod that.

    Just made and installed the new button panel. In a place that doesn't get covered with wires and USB cables. Case had no reset switch, which I wanted. Thankfully I found these in my projects box so they cost me nothing. Have braided with carbon braid and will wire them in tomorrow.

    OK so like I said the pump was hitting the glass. Well, the pump top. That's what these are for.

    [​IMG]

    Just one problem. They are M5. The bolts that go through them are M6. So yup, I just had to drill out 8 of them. That may sound rather easy, well good luck holding them lol. Eventually I won. I only wrecked one, but that was OK 'cause I got 10 and only needed 8.

    [​IMG]

    A much better solution than stacking silver washers in there (Seen another guy with the same issue). Antec should provide spacers really. A water cooling case needs to be very flexible and this? well it just isn't.

    Et "Viola" (yes that's a deliberate typo because its my fave.)

    We soldier on.

    Oh and I noticed yet another F up in the design. That lower panel? it hits the fan. There's a poo joke to be had there.... Funny AF though. How could they have overlooked that? by designing a water cooling case and not actually trying the facking cooling gear in it? lmao.

    OK well she's about as done as she needs to be in order to get decent pics. All of the other stuff is mainly just for my OCD.

    Light on case off. Ignore the stupid RGB on the board I have turned that off in standby so many times and it just ignores that and farts rainbows.
