    Yay! The summer holidays have started so finally some more time to post some updates ^^.

    First things first: I had ordered some more parts that have arrived. A huge amount of Phobya stuff for the custom sleeving (heatshink, pins, pin removal tool, ...).
    I also received an antistatic work mat. It makes your workplace look so much more professional :).

    The Eiszapfen quick release connector: I will use this for the drain and the fill port.

    And of course there has to be some light ;-). Notice in the background that there's a mosfet cooler. Unfortunately it doen't fit my motherboard.

    Drilling the holes for the 240mm radiators. So much easier with a template!

    It fits!

    Well, these don't seem to fit that well, I'll have to adjust the holes a bit here...

    The 8mm motherboard standoffs have arrived from China^^.

    Driling out the holes for the motherboard.

    Cutting out the intake for the radiators

    With the radiators and the fans installed:

    It closes!!

    IMG_2404.JPG

    There is still about 2cm of space between the bottom radiator and the GPU

    Any recommendations on a PCI USB Card?

    Make sure you don't burn them mate!

    Also, I'll deliver your Power Suply soon :)

    I finally received my new power supply and I had the time to continue on this project. I will let the pictures speak for themselves [​IMG]
    IMG_3528.JPG IMG_3529.JPG IMG_3530.JPG IMG_3531.JPG IMG_3532.JPG IMG_3533.JPG IMG_3534.JPG IMG_3535.JPG IMG_3536.JPG IMG_3537.JPG
    I was having trouble making the new PSU fit with the reservoir/pump combo...


    IMG_3538.JPG IMG_3539.JPG IMG_3540.JPG IMG_3541.JPG IMG_3542.JPG
    Turning the PSU upside down did the trick though ;)

    IMG_3543.JPG
    This is the filling port

    IMG_3544.JPG IMG_3545.JPG
    I'm glad to have found a way to fit everything the way it does. However, I'm concerned with the way the cables will be routed. I guess that I'll find out soon enough [​IMG].

    On another note, I'm also wondering how I should go about with my loop realistically with the limited space that I have.

    This is what I wanted to do originally: Reservoir --> Top radiator --> CPU --> Mosfet --> bottom radiator --> GPU
    That would unfortunately mean a lot of tubing next to each other and a lot of surface to cover.

    To make this easier I thought about doing it this way:
    Reservoir --> Top radiator --> CPU --> Mosfet --> GPU --> bottom radiator.

    Do you guys think that temps will be majorly affected by this? :/

    You are worried about CPU temp, right? The difference will be insignificant considering parts you used, about 2-4 degree (depending on the flow rate). You should consider to place GPU water block first, it seems to be the hottest part of your loop (GTX970 vs 6600K???).

    I'm looking forward to seeing this build complete, also trying to figure out how your going to fit everything in,
    I'll pray for you.

    Awesome! Yeah I didn't think it would make a big difference but it's always better to ask ;)
