LOL, g.l., remember that I'm making two sets, only one set into my case so there's enuff space

Been playing with hall sensor but without much luck, I can make this dissassembled fan to read a rpm from another fan, holding the hall close to the magnet of that spinning fan, but seems to me that hardware on the mobo that count signals from it cannot read small rpm, so think I'll have to find another way to do it, still searching

I also had to remove the drive cage and move it further to one side of the case to make place for res. The res will be (hopefully) mounted on the hinges to swing ******ds the case for the ease of (re)filling.

That's about all for now, got second res almost ready, must seal the first one

Cheers!

Default Gettin there

Yup

Didn't do much over the weekend, but this afternoon was productive, none the less. Both res, flow indicators, NB and CPU blocks needs sealing between the layers, all the barbs are sealed in their places. One res is mounted on the hinges, and after sealing will be mounted into the place, gotta drill one more hole for securing bolt that will not let the res swing on the hinges. The initial idea (that kickass magnet from broken hdd) didn't work, I had to come up with somethin else. Cpu bases need lapping and thats (almost) it

I'll post more piccies of the two sets when I finish them all

Soon I hope

Cheers!

Does your wife know your using that table for your projects?

I still remember my mom after my dad droped a bolt onto the dining room table while trying to hang a light fixture over it.


Awesome project, btw. Love the flow indicator.

How tall is that case?

Thx a lot guys

Flow indicators for now will only be visual, no wires yet, I got another one made to experiment with hall or reed, hope I'll finally get the readable signal to the mobo.

LOL superart, yes, she actually sneaked on me with a digicam and took a pic while I was working there, the thing is that I vacuum clean everything after working in appartment, and never leave mess on that table (not that I wouldn't rather have a garage and leave all the tools where I can instantly find it, not needing a wrench fairy help me every time ). And ofcourse, the table is not an expensive one, so the deal was that I can work on it as long as I don't leave the mess. Fine by me

The case specs are in the pic attached, I actually wanted a big server case with more room inside, but couldn't find one (affordable, used...) so I went with this one.

Now I'm thinkin of better pump...

Thx again guys,

Cheers!

Despite the flu, still enjoyed the afternoon, making slow progress . The res and the securing bolt, it'll have to do until I figure somethin better to keep it from swinging... Took out the clearflex 60 tubing that I got more than half a year ago from frends in USA, it's pretty amazing what a simple online game (AA) can do... Redhead and Redseal decided to actually come here on vacation after they met us online, and we had a hell of a good time together. They also sent me this tubing, so THK U very very much both of you!

Back on track, took out R9800, removed the shim and tried the block. Purrfect . Dunno if the ramsinks will do any good, but I already had them, cut, sand and glue. Now I have to find some good springs to finally mount the block. Hope tomorrow I'll have some time to dismantle my current rig and put it in new case

Till then, Cheers!

If you want something bigger, yo could try looking into those double wide server cases that are 16" across, instead of 8".

Finally installed ! Temps and quietness are great (for me), only thing I don't like is the flow and the mess the wires brought but luckily, that can be sorted out, wires will be routed and I'm thinkin of that little grundfos pump.
Also, the fan 'controller' (12V/7V/5V) will be made and installed as soon as I find some more time.

Haaaaaappppyyyyyyyy

Man that is a whole lot of work that went into that system. Hell when you've got all that room why not? Wonderful stuff. Be sure to post up some pics of everything when you get the wires and everything squared away.

Wow, this stuff is OLD

Thx for the kind words, , the rig still looks the same on the outside, inside is A64 3200, DFI lanparty NF4 ultra D and R850XT, and only radeon is watercooled for now. Gotta find some time to make new blocks for CPU and chipset. But have a baby coming very soon so I don't believe I'll have a free time in next few months...

And the pump became a bit noisy, so I'll have to look for a new one (obtainable here).

Still lurkin' but don't have much to say , so glad that the site is still among the best

Cheers

D

Ben, Una - thk u for tryin to get me into that again, but ... gotta 2 yr old son that loves to spend my free time, and vice versa , the copper and the tools will wait a bit more

And, whats the point of makeing a WB for socket 939 LOL

RM5D - thx

The copper is 5 mm thick, and 4 yrs ago I simply couldnt find lexan here at all, a member of this forum sent me a nice piece of 1/2" by mail (big thx again BlackEagle ), thats the reason why I did the sandwich top for Radeon

Ill try to dig out the .cdr files of the blocks, gotta be somewhere on backup CDs, but cannot promise you how soon LOLL, gotta find those CDs first
