Aiming for the following this weekend to help progress this build.

  • Re-wire 5 x SP120 FANS to 3PIN (Currently they are PWM 4PIN)
  • Fabricate, Paint & Install mounting plate for D5 Laing Pump.
  • Complete sleeving on D5 Pump, SATA Cables & IO Panel Cables.
  • Install D5, Reservoir & Complete the loop.

 

Id predict another week or so for this build and then it will be complete or at a stage of completion.

Bitspower Z Reservoir

Completed the mounting plate, sprayed Gloss Black :) Barely even noticeable although anyone with the R4 will understand the bottom isn't exactly appealing when you remove all the HDD Cages.

Mounted the Reservoir and completed 95% of the loop, all that remains now is the finish the sleeving on all remaining items & mount the top radiator once the CPU/RAM is 100% installed.

 

Aiming to fill the loop tomorrow. :)

Completion - Final Photo's

So another buildlog comes to an end, this is my third log featured on LinusTech and hopefully it won't stop there.

Began filling the loop yesterday when i noticed a small leak in the Reservoir, the same leak that occurred within my Mercury build, this time it was my fault as i had forgot to place the O-Ring around the fitting :o

 

Out of all my builds I've created over the past few years this would have to be my best, aesthetically, you may not agree, but that's fine.

 

Anyway here's the photo's, stay in touch as a new build is always around the corner ;)
