just blasted the fly clean off :rofl:
Getting there, slowly but surely
I hadn't planned on using either Phobya radiators or fans but when a friend at Aquatuning UK saw the prod log on Bit-Tech and suggested i give them a go, plus the fans fit in perfectly with the colour scheme, who was i to argue. So hats off to both Aquatuning and Phobya for getting involved in this mod.
13x Phobya Nano-G 12 PWM LED Silent Waterproof 1500rpm
13x Phobya 4Pin PWM extension 30cm - black
2x Phobya G-Changer 240 Black
2x Phobya G-Changer 480 Ver. 1.2 Black
2x Phobya Radiator Stand - black - Quad - 4x120mm
Still waiting on blocks but before i get the 480 rads mounted in the rad box, i'm going to do some simple testing to see which way is best for airflow etc but they do fit perfectly
13 fans - is that all?
What's the noise level like during your testing?
Looks really clean coolmister! keep the pictures coming
I have to agree coolmister, those fans look very nice! Next dumb question....where is the 13th fan going?
Probably on the back of the chassis
Big thanks to Michael at MIP's for getting me the SR-2 blocks along with a couple of HK3's and RAM Freezers.
I pre-ordered some M3 stand-off along with some M3 Hex bolts so could go ahead and mount the HK3's using the standard SR-2 back plates so couldn't resist to do a dry run to see how things look
I'm trying to keep components separate so at least both CPU's will end up being roughly the same temps which would be better when overclocking so i'm thinking three loops like this....
1x 480 rads for CPU's
1x 480 rads for MB and RAM Blocks
2x 240 rads for GPU's
I think that should be plenty
I've used red, blue and green so its easier to pick each loop out but i won't be going with those colours
I'm no water cooler (no pun intended) but wouldn't it work out better if you cool one CPU + RAM separately from the other CPU + RAM?
If you're cooling both processors using the same feed I'd imagine it'd be warmer than cooling one lot of RAM plus a processor (plus a chipset), as the RAM would give off less heat.
Having said that, you'd end up with two different temperatures for the CPUs...
I'm thinking the second CPU in the loop would run warmer than the first because it is using "prewarmed" water?
I'd go RAM1 + CPU1 -> 480
RAM2 + CPU 2 -> 480
GPU -> 2x 240
Does the mobo need cooling?
Sorry for the lack of updates - i've been modding my new car
Three Kazemaster fan controllers turned up for the rad box so time to make a bezel to hold them.
Just wish they had turned up earlier so i could have got them all mounted but ran out of time so one down, two to go and at least the weather is going to hold out all weekend so more to come over the next few days.

Finished the bezel for the rad box which worked out good even though there is a few slight imperfection - fan controllers are just stuck in with Blu Tack for the time being and the whole thing still needs powder coated and painted but that's it pretty much done
This is sweet!! Great work..
Thanks for the feedback
Couldn't resist doing a bit of a mock up held together with bubble gum and string
But but but.... you can't control one of the fans
mmmm the overkill....
That is all.
OH man! I think I need to cool off now. That case is hot!! Oh the longing for the amount of free time to get something like this accomplished. I wish I had it!!
My apologies for the delay on this and should get back on track after Multiplay LAN at the weekend
Massive thanks to Vincent at Bitspower who shares the same birthday as me
Got the extended motherboard tray all made up and added the rails for it to slide in and out but took photos with wrong WB and they came out crap so i'll have to take more pictures once it stops raining.
Also the front bezel SR-2 logo which i did have the correct setting on the camera and added some scrap red plexi behind but the plan is to fill up the logo with red Crystal Resin so its flush and light it from behind.
That bezel work are REALLY great!!
