    Cable Management

    HOLD UP, HOLD MY PHONE!!

    Won't be able to annotate AS much this time. Pretty busy to say the least.

    First up cutting a new cable management piece. Notice the V-bit 45° cut. This is vital to get the piece to actually fit.

    Measure up:

    Apply heat:

    [​IMG]

    And bend:

    [​IMG]

    Repeat to complete:

    [​IMG]

    You can see now how the 45° was necessary:

    Did another couple of tubes for the rear rad:

    [​IMG]

    Installed the fans on the 360. Really cant get over how good these rads and fans are:

    [​IMG]

    A little look in the case internal... suppose it's a bit anticlimax now half the stuff has been taken out:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Back to our old tricks. Really like physically marking stuff:

    [​IMG]

    Then do it all again but with holes:

    Installing the cables:

    That would be it for today.

    Thanks for checking in :)

    more tubing

    Hi folks!

    Will let the photos talk. Managed to hook up the second GPU and the 240mm rad at the back. Basically 90% of the hard line work done now which means we can really start to speed things up here:

    [​IMG]

    Decided to use acrylic tube to connect GPUs as we've used a lot of it. Thought the XSPC connecting system may have looked out of place:

    [​IMG]

    Another pretty wild tubing run:

    Hello third GPU; nice to see you:

    [​IMG]

    Also connected up the back 240mm rad:

    Will be a fuller update soon. Sorry for the small ones :)

    Don't :(

    At the moment parts required to finish it are still not here. I hope they show up with the mid day post today... pretty annoying. The next day delivery was supposed to be here Friday.

    Magnus will not be coming to the ball. The company providing the O Rings decided to lie last week and say they would be with me the following day. Still not with us and without them we'd have a very leaky rig.

    It's an annoying set back but ultimately not so much of a bad thing. It would have meant rushing the rig and thus not allowing us to actually give you guys much if a project. Considering we have some of the best parts of the build yet to come id rather wait.

    It also means by friend can come help film the loop filling so worth holding out.

    As for the project log ill have a baby update posted Friday night. Made a cool pump bracket and tested one of the custom milled parts!

    Damn shame mate as i was really looking forward to seeing it but good call as its pointless trying to rush a build of this high quality.

    Fingers crossed i see it at i51 :hehe:

    Ok, ok, so I think it looks a wee bit crazy with those long hard acrylic tubes sitting there across almost all of the insides, blocking the view of that gorgeous hardware, but I BET it'll look much, much sweeter once that loop has been filled up. Yo, O-ring guys! Get your act together! ;)

    Yeah it sure is crazy... someone who saw it in person said the tubing looks a bit like spider man spraying something out of his... wrist! ;D

    O-Ring update!!! 'We are pleased to let you know your order is on its way to.....'

    We are in business. Look forward to updating you all as and when.

    See you tomorrow mate. Look forward to you seeing the older builds in person!

    Milling custom parts & more braid

    Sponsors/Support:
    [​IMG]

    Back with another update:

    First up we draw... powered by Monster Energy!

    [​IMG]

    A little while later the CNC can start the job. 5mm frosted clear acrylic. Tooling for this job 3mm single flute and 2.5mm single:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Understand this is a test for what will next be cut in the 25mm thick block I showed some updates ago:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    At the time of photography the O Rings had not turned up. However they have now and I can let you know we are fitting no problems. We will cut the 25mm next.

    Time to smarten up the D5's; XSPC pump tops and MDPC braid:

    [​IMG]

    Next a small make over for the fans. Grabbed some little fan stickers from Nate over at E22. Nate has helped out as and when he can and was a great guy when we met him. Sadly we don't get to see enough of him. He has also sent us a few other useful things that finish this build nicely:

    Before:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    After:
    [​IMG]

    Simple indeed but so necessary.

    Braided the molex to mini-sata. Wasn't sure if there was a better option for this but needed something to power the slot loader so these seemed sufficient:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Next task was to make some kind of mount for both the bumps. A lot of people ask why we don't use other materials such as aluminum wood etc. For the most part anything we do cut we wait and cut while we are already cutting that colour of acrylic. For example we cut these frosted clear parts when we had to cut frosted accents for a customers case. It's realistically the most feasible way of getting a project log done while not interfering with to much of our workload.

    We need something to sit on please:

    [​IMG]

    You can sit on me!?

    [​IMG]

    OK thanks:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Some little fix ups on the sata cables:

    [​IMG]

    So that's all for the update this time around. Lot of small bits but they all have to be done so please stick with us!

    I will leave you with a couple of photos from the Multiplay Insomnia i50 LAN event. Any questions please ask:

    Thanks Nate, was a shame you didn't make it to iSeries! Did you hear the location is now closer for us? I imagine it would shave an hour off for you. Yeah the Parvum corner is always the party spot :D
