      I put it on the outside the house and break out the small electrical air compressor and clean it pretty quickly in a matter of a few minutes....Comes in handy that the case has wheels, as the frigging thing fully loaded like this and water cooled weighs over 100 Lbs, so there's no way in hell i'll ever take it to a lan party....

        Xion, did you fab a custom mount for that rad or is that something that came with the case?

        Thx Greasy.

          That's actually plastic tubing used in electrical wiring harnesses on cars...I've seen it used in that application....There could be more uses, i just haven't seen it used anywhere else.

            Thanks. Oh, the plastic sleeving? Yeah, I hate sleeving cables. This stuff is effective although not as neat. It's a lot easier, for sure.

              Yep!

              It's not MDPC sleeving or anything, but you can "sleeve" cables in about 1/1000th the time with it, so occasionally I'll use it. And it was black so seemed to blend in with the build more than a few I've done in the past.

                There's just a single cut in the tubing and it wraps around the entire harness, so it is much easier to install, but doesn't it block some airflow to the radiator?

                    Yeh, its called conduit.

                    Lol yeh I did that on a previous build but ended ripping it all off a short time later, but youre right, its a lot easier than sleeving cables.

                      Well, my airflow is reversed from yours. I'm pulling cool air in from the front (have a pull config on the radiator) and it's exhausted through the radiator fins and into the middle of the case. There are two 200mm fans in the ceiling that you can't see that exhaust hot air.

                      I've mounted a radiator to the ceiling before like you have yours, but (and this is my personal preference.. not saying that it's wrong) I don't like doing that since hot air naturally rises. To try pulling in cool air from the top of the case goes against modern physics as heat naturally tries to dissipate through any vents that are in the top of the case. I have done it before with some success, though, so know that it can be done effectively. Just choose not to do it.

                      Any cables sitting in front of the radiator, front or back, will block some air, whether it's standard sleeve or the plastic tubing that I'm using now. However, I'm afraid not much can be done. With the layout of my case the radiator has to go in that spot it's in. And because the fittings on the radiator sit parallel to the res in the drive bay I'm using less tubing, as well.

                        Shadows, does the Swiftech kit come with an external mounting bracket or is that a separate purchase?

                        Just curious

                            True on all points, but i want the CPU's to receive the colder air from outside the case first, wich lowers their temps for a given overclock hence why it's set to intake rather than exaust, and i'll waterjet cut the side panels to allow 2 more fans( controled by the front mounted fan controler) to act as an intake for the vertical radiators cooling the GPU's as they're set to exausts.....Basically i'm trying to setup the cooling into 2 seperate areas for the CPU loop and the GPU loop.

                                just don't blow off any capacitors. Keep the PSI low.

                                  Ha! I did the same thing in my build too. Too lazy to sleeve the ****.

                                    Yeah, I'm sure that you have your own reasons for setting it up the way that you did.

                                    I learned this lesson one time. On my first water cooled PC I had the radiator mounted in the top of the case and "pushing" air off. Inexperienced as I was, I thought "pushing" the hot air off the radiator sounded like a great idea. One day I realized that I was doing nothing but exhausting all the hot case air through the radiator fins and heating up the radiator. I reversed the fans to pull cold air in through the top and dropped my temps by 5C when doing so.

                                    That's how I know it can be done.

                                    My preference, however, is to keep the radiator in the bottom of the case as that's naturally where the cool air resides. It becomes challenging with the more stuff you have in your case, though.

                                        By the time I'm done sleeving a PSU it's been like 3 days and my hands look like they've been through a cheese grater.

                                        I like this stuff better.

                                        Performance-PCs will sleeve them for you but it voids the warranty, and they charge a premium for their PSUs. Was trying to go a little more 'budget' with this build.

                                          Shadow, the air compressor for cleaning out dust is an excellent idea. These cans of compressed air are way too expensive.

                                                  Not me, usually need 2 cans. But I am extremely anal with it.

                                                    Those cans of compressed air don't do much for cleaning out a res. I use them for basic cleanup, but I bust out the air compressor every few months to clean out the fins in the res.

                                                          Final pictures incoming:




                                                          System is fully assembled with everything connected(i hope), and ready for the first full power up of the entire system.




                                                          Shows the plumbing for the cards more clearly.




                                                          I really need to replace that blue hose once i flush the CPU loop sometime in the future...




                                                          The top fillport for the larger of the 2 radiators used for the CPU loop, wich i had to drill the hole to the exact location where the built in reservoir is located on the radiator.

                                                            The adapter is adjustable both horizontally and vertically, so it can clear the I/O back panel quite easily and can be bolted to any of the 3 fan locations on the radiator itself....I just did it the painfull way by wanting everything internally...


                                                            Edit: Upgrade to what exactly?....There isn't anything much faster than this for the time being...

                                                              Cool, I just returned my H80 because apparently it's hit or miss to find one where the pump is not whining with a high pitched noise

                                                              Sad because it cooled like a champ.

                                                                      I take lots of photos so usually spray it out once a week. And the cans are like 6$/apiece here.

                                                                          Anyhow the beast is now plugged in and everything seems to be working just fine with a huge amount of water flow on the GPU loop with those 3 pumps, so i might connect the PWM headers on the bottom pumps to the touch screen fan controler as it has 2 headers available....They're MP35x pumps too btw.
