Thanks guys really nice comments there,

Stevenm56 those filters are the ones that come with lian li cases so I hope they don't restrict flow to much from what Ive tested I'm not to worried as the fans Ive got are over kill for the rads and heat load Ive got around 200w of heat load left over even with a silly amount of clocking lol.

Andy aye I took a while on those wires theres a few that Ill hold my hands up to not been perfect but there good enough for me on my first try its a bit of a rats nest underneth now but Ive tried to do a tidy mess all will be shown tomorrow if/when the posti brings me my last part, take a guess guys I'll give you a clue its attached to a rad.
MR D to you.

Seeing as you have 4 raptors, are you going for a Raid 0+1? If you can get a raid card that will read both arrays at the same time you're looking at some stupidly low access and read times

agrreed with Tom.. stickers are what 6 year olds have on bed headboards and wardrobes.

I like to change mine to engraved badges.

great build though.

RS standard boxes are great, can make a multitude of things, graet idea to use it to hide wires.

i may of personally had it other way up to hide screw heads, but you have easier access though?

The asus lcd has since been moved to next to the res.


Now everything was leak tested last night and passed, however my PSU is now on RMA after my ears got fed up with the high pitch scream it constantly gave from boot to shutdown and was louder than the raptors.

Anyway all work is now at a standstill because of this.

very nice Daza.;)on the rad on the right,couldn't you of used some 45 angled compression fittings,would cut out some of that tubing,and we all know,shorter tubing=better flow=lower temps.:)Then again as you got 3 rads,won't make much dif,i guess.;)

3 rads


4 Rads you mean :D

I did actually price up some bits power fittings but when the price came out I nearly fainted so doing it the good ol fashion way, flow is a bit of a problem even with two pumps will be checking when the PSU is back as there's a few items to eliminate first in that area.

Looking nice Daza, it's also refreshing to see someone who's realised that i7s are a waste of money for gaming :P

Ive also re-tweaked the loop layout as there were a few tight bends that I wasn't happy with hopefully this new one will be better.

Next update should be within the week and hopefully Ill be able to get some full case shots on the front page soon.

That's nice, few bubbles in the system but they'll work themselves out I guess?

Looking good :) Nice braiding.

Mwahahaha It lives It lives.


Cough back to normal no nothing blew up this time so its all up and running yes it needs a few more hours of bleeding and its a tad rough around the edges but it works without an ear piercing scream its only a subtle one when you put your ear next to the PSU even my old 750 corsair sounds the same.:yumyum:

A couple down a dirty fresh from the card, yes its tinted blue windows so my camera now turns its nose up atm.

Also how that HDD cage is mounted? Did you screw it in to the 5.25" drive bays or something?
