Fantastic fantastic fantastic
Have been working my ass off today, and have got most of the system together. Have not had the time to take many photo´s though but i will leave you with a teaser of one of the hardest things to get together. It looks simple, but this actually took me hours to get fittet together!
Looks awesome dude, on a side note I saw your Mini Model 3107... now that's awesome!!
But it just looks so good!
To the rest of you - If you are in doubt what Nate talks about then it is this:
Glad you like it
More should come today. I am pressure testing the loop as we speak, and if it can hold air, i will fill it up and leak test when i get home!
Wow, that is an incredible build so far! came late to the party, just read through the whole log, sucks you got run down... i got hit by a car once... not a whole lot of fun... keep up the spectacular work though!
30 min until my shift is over
Last pic you posted is stunning, it looks so clean and makes me wish I had access to a 3d printer even more
The chair you made is also very nice, cool how you made it into a log an described the whole proces
HOME! And update incoming!
So, needed to fit the harddrive "hider" on. Did not have time to cut the plexi to sit behind the letters though.
Now this part.... I HATED IT. Took so friggin long to get those wires to sit neat and clean. But it worked out.
Harddisk cover in place.
The workplace while routing some of the hoses and fitting stuff.
The plan was to use Bitspower crystal links here, but that would "lock" the pump holder to much so i decided to use normal hose.
Most of the hoses routed!
Wires wires wires. All of these are coming from pumps, harddrives, dvd drive and the aquaero.
Some fun with a laser lol.
Sata cable lenght - NAILED IT!
Still need to print some more 3d stuff though.
Now, I did not want this thing to suddenly leak for me, so before i started leaktesting with fluid, I filled the system with air pressure, and left it for 8 hours. When I got back and it still was under pressure, i knew that there where no leaks, so i continued with the fluid.
Two liters in, and I realize that I do not have enough fluid -.-
To make the filling of the system a breeze i first put a /dunno what its called/ and put it at the fillport.
After that, I opened one of the radiators so air could escape from the highest point. This made filling the system quite easy.
So after I emptied two bottles of fluid, the reservoir is still only half full. I should be able to get some more to in time for campus party.
The rear reservoir filled with fluid.
And here she is, with a helping hand from PC-Beto to power the pumps.
PC-Beto felt left out, so here is a picture of her main artery
Now I really should get the last wires routed, and power her up!
WOW-WOW-WOW! I watched your project, Pope, from the 1st page and I must say it`s really cool!
I think it would be good to cut off the tabs securing the power supply, what do you say?
he spent like 6 hours measuring to get that to fit perfectly. they stay
Thanks! But look below I think you missed a page
Yeah, that was utter hell
But i think i nailed it
Ouch, sorry - my fault! Anyway, great mod!
Hehe no problem!
And i am glad you like it!
That looks absolutely awesome, love the cable routing
Very nice Hans only a few more things and U are ready. Looking forward to see it at CP. Only a few more days to go.
Duuude. This is turning out great! I am really impressed with how you use the 3D-printed stuff everywhere. It really is innovative. Looking forward to see it in real life some day
