Only few pics.
True Black Apogee XT
Small update after long time.
I paint rest of fittings.
Also i finished custom water blocks, and put orings in.
And finally mounting system for hard drives is done.
Next update within few days.
I think you mounted the top left top wrong, the flow wont flow with that orientation.
Razarač, okreni donji dio bloka za čipset.
I did it, but after taking this photo.
Long time no see. Time for new update.
PSU sleeving is done.
And soon I will mount a few tiny details for better cable management.
HDD case is nearly done.
I needed in/out ports for connecting external radiator with rest of the loop.
Drilling holes. Done!
And finally eye candy details.
So, much... GORGEOUS!
Small update. I decide to go with clear acrylic tubes.
Till now i didn't have chance to bend this kind of tubing, so I spent some time trying to get perfect bends.
After bending I cut tubes at same size.
I still need to bend one tube, and redo pump to first block tube.
After some thinking I find place for hard drive.
Testing height and drilled holes.
Standoffs with rubber. Hope this will kill hdd vibrations.
Mounted on railing.
After painting I put PSU together and mount hdd.
And HDD power.
After short break I'm done with pipe bending.
After a few unsuccessful tries to route pipe on right side I decide to go with this shorter, simpler but not that pretty line.
I filled loop today to check for leaks, and to clean pipes, and blocks. Tomorrow I will fill loop again and test Mayhems blue dye.
Brilliant idea for the HDD placement.
Today I filled system again, and added some Mayhems Blue.
I will add some more color to get darker blue, and need to make some sound proof box for pump.
The sound may be more from what the pump is mounted to. A box would just overheat it.
Amazing build, dude!
Looks grate mate but if I were you I think I'd use a smaller rad and put it inside the case.
I was thinking about smaller rad but somehow this option suits better for me.
Awesome build - I must agree with what was said as well - if I were you, I would've installed the triple rad in the front or top of the case instead of outside, seeing that the wood case was completely custom built anyway.
Why, if I may ask, did you go this route anyway?
Nice none the less!
