The dreaded man flu has lifted its ugly head for a few hours,so this gave me chance to get the cpu loop finished.
All went yo plan,leak tested for 8 hours.no issues.







Will start the Gpu loop very soon,totally drained.no strength at all
This flu doesn't want to leave me........

Hi all.
My apologies for the lack of updates.ive been manic for the last month.
My business commitments and family life.
But great news yesterday,finally found the time to Collect the case panels of AIR480
I have had them hydro dipped in a brushed aluminium finish.
They have done a great job and very professional team.
I've attached some diamond mesh behind the corsair logo,This logo is also adding ventilation to the basement where the radiators are.
I've also installed the 3mm thick clear acrylic windows,I've done a video and will get it uploaded to my YouTube channel.
Enjoy......

Greetings all.......

Sorry for the lack of updates on this build.
I've moved house,moved business premises and have been busy decorating and contract work for my business.
Also I done a build for my other half and my daughter (Sofia).

Now the new workshop decks are clear,it was time to finish off AIR480 and get ready for the next project with Antec and EVGA.

I'll back track a little here,AIR480 had a clear acrylic lid on it.the 2 gtx1080 protruded through the lid.dont get me Wong it looked nice and neat and tidy.but I wasn't happy.........
So when MSI offered the 1080TI FE,I jumped at the chance of getting everything under 1 acrylic lid.
So I made a 3mm thick acrylic frame to sit on top of the chassis of AIR480,this gave me clearance for the FE 1080TI.
Now the new acrylic lid fitted perfectly,with 1.5 mm clearance above the Gpu blocks.Niiiiiiiiiiice.........

But here's a few pictures of the upgrades for AIR480

































Thanks for looking,a bit of spit and polish and AIR480 will be ready for the photo shoot.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of my sponsors

THANK YOU.

Default AIR480 finished

Hi all.
Well AIR480 had a great response when it was in the corsair stand at i61.
Lots of people asking great questions on how I designed and built her.

Since the show,AIR480 has had a comp,eye strip,clean,flush through and new fluids in the loops.
I made the clear orange loop a little darker,now I'm happy.....

Hope you enjoy,it's been a fantastic project to work on.

Massive thank you to all of my sponsors,it's been a pleasure and a honour working with you all.
