I will test the acrylic some more the coming days :)

(There is a possibility I will be using 12/10 PETG though which is almost unbreakable)

 

First unpack this amazing package from Bitspower.

This will hopefully be forming the construction :)

 

Unpacking by candlelight.

These days are crazy busy at home and at work so didn't have time for an update yet :)

 

 

First another package before I can show my ideas.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/21%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

White coolant.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/22%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Could be I will cancel one 240 or 360.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/23%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Should do it for 2 loops :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/24%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Always liked this most, clear blocks.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/25%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

There will be an acrylic top incoming for the X99 mosfet block.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/26%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Replaced the cpu bracket with a nickel plated one.

I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas!

 

Here the hardware I will be using on this project.

It's the biggest honor to be able to carry out my passion with the brands which

were also my favorite before I started modding.

Doing this all in one big post, sorry for the amount of awesomeness!

 

First the Corsair package.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/34%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/35%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

This came as a big surprise, didn't expect a 64GB Octo kit.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/37%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Can't wait to play with this. (And the rest off course)

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/52%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

From Azerty and Intel Netherlands.

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/54%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/55%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And from Asus Benelux.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/56%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Ready to install.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/57%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/58%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Checking how the Deluxe will look without the white panels and covers.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/59%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Will use the white I/O panel myself though.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/60%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Because I had some problems in the past after mounting blocks, testing the system this time in a temporary case.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/61%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

To get my ideas I usually put something like this on my desk for a week.

I was looking for a Dominator Platinum style.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/62%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And on a Saturday morning I start messing with Sketchup :)

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/64%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/65%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/66%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

After a lot of running up and down to the attic to measure.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/67%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Not sure yet if the grey parts will be aluminum or acrylic.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/68%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

Thanks Corsair, Nvidia, Asus, Azerty and Intel!

A nice evening of blocking :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/69%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/70%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Perfect to remove EK logo's and replace them.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/71%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/72%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/73%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Done!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/74%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

But first the original Nvidia SLI bridge ..

Want to polish it and have a little problem.

I don't want to place the GPU's that close together and the spaced-slot bridge wasn't an option with the X99 Deluxe.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/75%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

First dismantle it.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/76%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

This is the space I need, just one slot further.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/77%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And took it apart even more.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/78%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

While brainstorming also got an other idea.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/79%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Let's first sand and polish.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/80%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And clean it up again.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/81%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Got taken care of very well ;)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/82%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Also done!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/83%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Just going to use the other bridge with the original housing. Do need to isolate it with some tape.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/84%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Cut away the top green layer so I will be able to use a white or blue one.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/85%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Because I'm going to use the Corsair Link Commander also decided to use the Corsair RGB LED strips :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/86%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Add glue and wait :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/87%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Next day .. satisfied.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/88%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

So ... got what I wanted :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/89%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Back to the setup.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/90%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/91%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Gotta play with it off course ;)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/92%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/93%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/97%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

The color will probably become white

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/98%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Trying to get inspired for the next update :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/99%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And a little round-up video incl. the SLI/GPU enlightening.

Thanks guys!

 

Small update.

 

Back to the SSD's.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/100%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Lets first cut them in half :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/101%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/102%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/103%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Some people got scared by this photo on facebook :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/104%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Giving the Dominator Platinum fins a nice rounding.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/105%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And some more sawing, filing and sanding.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/106%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/107%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Should become something like this :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/108%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Corsair Force LX Dominator Platinum 1TB Raid0 SSD :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/109%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Also got the question if I was able to do something with the new Neutron XT's but the PCB is a little larger.

Will come up with something different for them ;)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/110%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Also got the pipe from CoolForce/Nanoxia for this project. Something I haven't been working with before.

12/10 mm PETG ... Finally! (instead of acrylic)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/111%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/112%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

Made a little video of it with some of the differences.

Sorry for the late update but I was kinda busy :-)

 

 

Got a very nice package from Parvum Systems.

Again, thanks a lot Parvum Systems!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/125%20%5B550xl3pparvum%5D.JPG

 

 

Fixing a little mistake I made, went well with a 20mm countersink.

So .... drilled some holes :)

 

First getting all the measurements.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/131%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/132%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

I planned to weld the top part to the bottom part for max stability.

However decided to do it with what I have at home and by hand :)

Lovely to work outside.

Work space after an afternoon of drilling, sawing, sanding, filing and tapping :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/141%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Also mounted the PSU frame.

And blocks done for frame mounting.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/144%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Now just need to mount them.

To be able to mount them to the radiators.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/155%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And mounted some parts :)

Back!

 

First gave the 'Corsair Force LX raid0 ssd' a new home with 3M duallock.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/157%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

And then ... how to start here .. I really hate cable management. (maybe cause I'm an electrician?)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/158%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Testing the fans and LEDS at night.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/159%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And back to the cables, one by one.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/160%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Behind the 240 radiator are a lot of cables hidden from fans, pumps and the Corsair Links.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/161%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

I was missing something on the radiators and push/pull was a bit too much in my opinion.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/162%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

So went for these radguards from Highflow with white inlay.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/163%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

15 minutes later.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/164%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Better.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/165%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Changed the GPU cables from 6+2 pins to 6 pins.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/166%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Oops ... got to hide this behind the PSU.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/167%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

So removing more unnecessary connectors.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/168%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

For this project I was looking for a clip in the same style as the project itself.

So sat down before it and just waited till something came up.

Why not in same style as the Dominator Platinum fins?

Had a good talk with my bud Scott Bruins and he came with this design .. awesome :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/169%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/170%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

We were both already in contact with Nanoxia / Coolforce and because they saw something in it too they decided to bring them out :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/171%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

This is the first prototype and the finals will be less wide (1cm on a 24-pin) and will have 2 x M3 mounting holes on the back.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/172%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And ordered a Bitspower X-station so I can easily play around with the 4 different pumps/loops.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/173%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Would like to know your thoughts about the clip :)

Clips look pretty good. Since you did have them custom made, would it be possible to have them done in the same thickness as the memory? For me personally, the clips seem to draw the eye more and detract from other areas in the build, maybe even anodise them a different colour? Just my 2c.

Summer vacation!

And like every year .. modding! :)

 

I've been looking for a proper solution to support the GPU's and Rads for a few weeks.

Then I found this in a dusty corner at work.

Nickel plated copper rails which are used for 12V halogen lamps.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/175%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

First had to brainstorm and draw a few hours about the loop and some other things

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/176%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And finally .. think I got it :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/177%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Made bends in the Rad supports.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/178%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Sturdy stuff.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/180%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And making mounts for it.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/179%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

The radiators are being pushed to the inside by itself because of how I mounted them.

These supports will make the whole more sturdy.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/181%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And starting on the loop.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/182%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Lovely working with PETG, pipecutter and deburrer :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/183%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Here a little video about the Henco deburrer.

18 months ago I saw an air-conditioning guy working with PVC/Alu/PVC pipe.

I thought .. that should work with acrylic too, finally found the 12mm version a few months ago.

 

[ame]

And making 3 bends to save some extenders and rotaries.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/184%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/185%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Bottom done according to my drawings :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/186%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Fitting the GPU supports.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/187%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Now to drill some holes in the backplates.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/188%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And make the holes in PCB's a little bigger :O

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/189%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

From M3 to M4.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/190%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Done!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/191%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Next update more on the loop!

This year 2 weeks on a nice camping place where my parents also are.

I thought .. if I really want to relax .. why not take my hobby with me? :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/193%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Because the week started with bad weather (off course) I was able to leave the pc in my parents caravan.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/194%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Great spot when it's raining outside ;)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/195%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

A day of shopping.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/196%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Also finally some time to sort some things.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/197%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And 4 days later finally some good weather! The one in the middle is my little spot :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/198%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

This is relaxing! :D

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/199%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/200%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Waste after 3 days of working with the loop.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/201%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

And further on the backside.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/202%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/203%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Had to take a few shots in the sun :)

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/204%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/205%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/206%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Decided to go home 2 days earlier so I could finish it with no people around me.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/207%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Creating cable to feed the pumps and Corsair Link

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/208%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/209%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

The last cables.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/210%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Drilling and tapping the last hole.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/211%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Finally filling!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/212%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/213%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Loop 1 .. no leaks!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/214%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Quite some foam with 2 pumps @ fullspeed.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/215%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Decided to use anti cyclone fittings in the reservoirs.

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/216%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Loop 2 also leakfree!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/217%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

I should fill it up soon ... because this .. just looks weird :D

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/218%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Even first boot went well!

 

http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/L3pipe/Buildlog/219%20%5B550xl3pw%5D.JPG

 

 

Soon final pics :)
