I finally got the parts i ordered and already hate half of them. But i did find some time to work around some issues with the case structure. It is blocking direct routing in some places. I managed to create a working solution connecting the radiator in the bottom to the drain valve, temp sensor and the rest of the loop. Just ridiculous that a few fittings and rotary or angled solutions can set you back well over 100$. But it seems to be solid now.
You can not order too many fittings it appears. I am amazed how many vanish into this build.
The multi top is way to big and i do not really like it. It does have 5 acces ports. But it does not line up right under the top rad, so i can not do what i had in mind with the single top.
And i still have not decided on the exit radiator
The key essence of a good loop, is that there is more heat dissapated than generated. And i will already achieve that with just a single radiator. I have two now, so adding a third is overkill.
Project overchill started with that idea, but i might just stick to the two radiators and use the exit fan for something creative or as an additional intake.
I really want to get some of the tubing done this week. But wiring comes first. The wrinkle wrap black sleeving seems like a clever solution to camouflage some of the exposed wires in the bottom section of the motherboard.
Where others are on holidays, my summer seems to be rush hour this year. But i dont really care. Only side projects like this build are taking way too long to finish.
