    looking good. who needs a full tower... it's not too hard to cram alot of gear in a small space with good planning. how do those EK blocks perform? i was looking at getting some of the hd4850 version.

    thx for comments. with just the 2 cards in the loop cooled by the xspc rs240 they pretty much dont budge from 42 degrees.

    Update


    Although its kinda running i wanna get the cpu underwater as this stock intel fan thing is a pos. I need a last few fittings along with some UV strips and some more cutting before i can totally finish but i think i have my loop pretty planned out.


    [​IMG]



    First though a little modding is needed to the RS120 as its 1mm-2mm bigger than i thought. That dont sound alot but thats how tight a fit it is. I really need a dremel and for my next build i definitely will buy one but for now im going to have to use my 4" grinder.



    [​IMG]



    This would be alot easier with a grinding disc but i dont have one so.... :lol:



    [​IMG]



    As a 120mm fan fits perfect where i want this to go i bolted one either side as a guide, so when i started cutting fan that was deep enough.

    lol i know its not pretty iv given it a little rub with some wet and dry for about 2 mins so atleast i tried? Anyway its not to be seen so with a little paint its looks ok.

    Update.


    Well my rig has been running but half finished for a week or 2 now but i have been waiting for some bits to come before i pull it apart for the final time before i do some final case cuts and sorting the cables. Anyway will be updating over the next few days with the progress but had a few little delivery's today.



    A load of braid for all the fans.
    The final fan, it feels i have loads even though its fully watercooled but i had a little room left so thought why not. As its going to be seen iv gone for a Orange yate loon to match the theme.
    Also some extra bolts for my rad and some more 90 degree fittings.

    [​IMG]

    Oh and some X-Swing hdd vibration dampers.


    [​IMG]


    Also Started the hatefull job of braiding. will do rest one rigs apart.

    Thanks.

    I love your project so far. Everything looks great.
    I looked into those HDD dampeners a while ago. Have you tried them out? I am looking into getting a pair.

    Update.


    Well got all the final bits for the build so all stripped down and laid out ready.



    [​IMG]


    This is how i have to run the barbs on the pump as there is zero room in this thing now.



    [​IMG]


    Block fitted with the MX-2.


    [​IMG]


    Wanted a easier option for removing block from time to time without removing the mobo from the tray.


    Tool for the job..


    [​IMG]


    All cut, not perfect but its hidden.



    [​IMG]


    Had a massive braiding session doin all the fans, Sata cables, Power switches etc.

    Then after fitting the mobo and cards back in which is a big job in itself i went about the second rad. Funny but my idea actually worked and it fitted right in just clearing the EK waterblocks and the read 80mm fan.


    [​IMG]


    Now Just gotta finish up the cable routing, Lighting, Side panels with possible windows and to leak test.
