    I have my cpu block hard mounted with button heads, but am concerned about even mounting pressure. How do you plan on addressing that?

    the screws i use are 30mm in length

    when you screw the button heads into the block there is a lot of thread that sticks out form the rear of the board.

    i will be measuring the amount of thread sticking out of the back and being careful to apply even pressure.

    i have done this a few times now so it shouldnt be a problem.

    finally, after months of planning and setbacks I have finally manged to get the new hardware and parts fitted to my system.

    10am this morning and I finished at 7pm.

    really pleased with the outcome this time and I think that I will be drawing the line under this project now.

    I will let the pics do most of the talking but will cherp in with explinations if need be.
    also please check the video at the end, its not great quality as it was a last minute idea and was shot with an iPhone. but it should give you all an understanding of just how quiet the system is now.
    Seriously, I cant even tell its on!

    Ripped everything apart and started again...


    Riveted the custom rear panel in place


    looking sleek


    hello old friend...


    midplate cut, filed, de-burred and bulkhead in place






    straight down into the D5


    and into the Quad, Tygon Goodness


    the tubing route i had planned in my head for months worked brilliantly


    facepalm


    PA 240 mounted in the drive bays


    things are going to be tight. i moved it back so that it had a bit of space to suck air and wasnt right next to the mesh


    had to get creative with fittings to make this work


    Gigabyte with their 'not so' stealth backplate


    ssds on velcro :p


    very tight squeeze


    Xigmatek blueline XLF fans looking pretty sweet


    starting work on the board...
    The Dominator GT will have new heatsinks soon, i plan on getting some of the extended fins but more of that later




    got some matching screws for my CPU Block
    wanted this to be the primary focus of the build






    Start of the tubing routes










    tubing finished


    really pleased with how this turned out. really neat.


    fitted the last fan and ran out of black screws . will pick some up at work on Monday. also had to use three of the fan extention cables from the fan controller. of course they werent braided so an emergency braiding job was required and completed on all three cables in 20 minutes.
    speed braiding is my new speciality


    the coolant I used is very good. Mayhem Pre-Mix X1 UV Blue, supplied by the brilliant Mayhems Dye. it looks incredible in the system, the pictures really dont do it any justice at all.








    Hello Pretty




    fitting the front bezels




    totally transforms the look of the case, i prefer this to the stock bezels.








    shoddy SSD mounting at the moment. i plan on sorting this out soon :o






    then i installed the final component.
    after all the faffing with MurderMod I gave up any hope of ever seeing a luminous panel.
    instead i chose a lian li LED strip. took 5 seconds to fit. good times.


    Lights off...




















    makes the tinted windows look incredible














    heres the system at half fan speed folding away happily at 100% load on the cpu and gpu


    thats it for now.

    thanks for checking it out

    thanks for the comments guys

    yeah, as mentioned i will be getting some of the extended dominator fins soon.

    the problem is that i will need to send them away to be nickel plated so it could take a while.

    it should look fairly sleek once they are on.

    ah well C7 dominator GT and a westmere cpu makes up for it i guess

    Nickel-plated Dominator fins? *faints*

    oh, its happening!

    the place i am sending them to needs to send them away as the heatsinks are aluminium [so apparantly harder to nickel plate]

    EDIT - hows that for timing...

    look what just arrived





    off to get nickel plated, just for ScottALot

    loving the new heatsinks, red is ugly as hell hehe

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    build complete

    happy days









    here you see i removed the tube which eventually kinked. i figured that two 90s are less restrictive than a kink and look better too.

    I love the chorme fins, awesome build! You should have kept the cpu --> mosfet tubing arch though, the 90s just dont give it the same look.

    have you tried to use 45 degree fitting instead of barbed fitting for you cpu block? I just wonder if it makes better in looks and easy for the tube.
