Sweet build man! Going to keep an eye on this one.
Awesome! Your builds are always amazing Pope
nice! love the rads !
Sweeet rads indeed
May have to get one of them if I eventually watercool my next PC build
Will you even need both ?
Thanks Bill Yours are rocking too
That makes two of us
I dont know much of the performance yet, but the build quality is awsome!
Both? There is 3 dude And it is massive overkill
Those rads are gorgeous!
They are Aquacomputer AMS radiators
That's some awesome radiators dude! nice to see the build progressing along smoothly
We are looking into getting a 3D printer at work, every time I read more of your log I keep getting inspired and praying they decide it's a good idea
Time to get on with this, so it will be somewhat ready to S7 Lan at my school
First of all, I have been busy with some other stuff that I will post tonight, or tomorrow But i will give you a teaser:
Anyways, on to the big and expensive thing that I am about to cut holes in
So, as mentioned earlier i had to cut off a piece of the mobo tray to make it fit with the radiators.
Also had to cut off the two thingies that I think is supposed to hold some feets for the mobo tray, if you want to use it as a bench table
Like a glove! Fits lovely in there!
So, got my hands on some raw material! From this,
I made this. But what is it? I will show in a min.
First, I cut a hole in the case This hole lines up with the radiator in the other side. You see, instead of connecting the two radiators with tubes, I will just connect them with the piece shown in the previous pic.
So just put it in, make it go into the radiator on the other side aaand...
Mount radiator number two Saves me a couple of fittings, and it looks darn clean!
Here you can see it connected to the two radiators
That was all for now fokes. I have some dye coming in, so that I can hopefully colour the 3d printed stuff in a real black, and not some brownish like the last dye I got
Sweet solution, but how will you make the threads to make it possible to screw this piece into both rads at the same time?
I guess it must just plug in nicely & not screw in knowing p0Pe I'd say so, big on the tiny details sweet little piece .
Nice fit for the rad too .
Thanks mads And for your question. Look below
As always, you are right waynio
Have o-rings in both ends, so the pieces is just "plug and play" Took quite a while to make it on the lathe, since the measurements had to be exactly if i did not want it to leak
I am at the moment building a "leaktester" that will work with air and a pressure gauge, so i dont have to fill water in the loop to leaktest lol
3d printer = amazing
I am jealous
Are those radiators Aluminium on the inside or just the fins? They are just too nice looking.
They are brass on the inside i think, or copper The fins are alu
This aint dead guys Just been very busy with other stuff
Came around to mill a prototype for the small "reservoir"
LIKE A BOSS! nuff said....
Ugh I want some deus ex type implants so I can match the accuracy & speed of CNC with a dremel .
Looking good p0Pe .
Looking good pOPe ^^
Haha thanks Alex!
I will do another testrun tomorrow with the final settings for the POM I will mill this from. I should have the acrylic i need next week so hopefully the final reservoirs will be done sometime next week
