nice touch to the gpu block! It's these small things that make a build stand out, keep up the good work and we need more pictures

Hehe, thanks. Yup, the devil's definitely in the details. The more details I "fix", the
more all the unfixed ones stand out and start to bother me, it's really quite exhausting.

You'll get more pics, in due time.

Haha, yeah progress is slow, but I'm inching myself towards the finish line.

Thanks!

Loving what you've done with the fans. I remember when I reviewed the range a while back commenting on how good they would be for modders as they come apart so nicely. Great to see someone actually doing it. They're not half bad performance wise either

Thanks! Yeah I'm pretty happy with the result, now I just need to solder the wires back on. :/

I actually remember that article and you writing that. The 140 version actually packs a pretty
decent punch indeed, whereas I've found the 120 to be a tad weaker. But since I'm only looking
for a whiff of almost inaudible air over my rads (hence all that radiatorage ) that will totally
suffice.

Loop Planning

Loop Planning


So, I thought I'd allow you folks to have a peak inside my head. I've been doing some
loop planning in the past few days (~20 hours since Friday, to be more exact), and
it's a bit of a head-scratcher, but I'm getting there. The most recent layout I'm at
currently is probably not too far from what I'll eventually go with.

I won't start trying to explain what's actually going on here and why I'm making
the choices I'm making, that would take way too long and will be much easier
explained with some actual work (which will have to wait until my neighbour gets
back from vacation and I get the fittings). If anyone has any specific questions I'll
gladly answer them of course, and I'll happily accept feedback, but this is more
for documenting the build process than anything else.

One thing you might notice is that I'm not much of a CAD guy. Sure, CAD is awesome,
but I have found pen and paper to be much more conducive to my thinking
process. I have several dozen A4 pages of drawings for a scratch build that was, well,
scratched, because the SMH10 came onto the market and made my concept
superfluous. So you are rather unlikely to ever see me go through the planning
stages of a project with tons of CAD iterations (nothing against that, of course,
it's just not how my head works).

One thing I must note is that the tube I'm using is can't be bent, hence all those
angles. However, it does have an upside, which I will present once I actually get
to the building stage of this loop.

These are the iterations I've gone through so far, or at least the major ones.
The most recent one is bottom right.

So long,

Your head is a scary place to be inside.

LOL! You say the tubing cannot be bent. Why is that? I thought you could bend ANY tubing?
