Scratch Build Alphatier with two MONSTER Radiators

Recommended Posts

Thank you guys, 

Just some small update today 
Alphatier will not scratch my flor or desk anymore
I also put some tape on the frame so that the Radiator Paint will not get scratched
Unfortunately i still have to wait for the watercooling parts because some key parts are out of stock . 
It is always impressive to look at the 180mm fans compared to a normal 120mm

Thank you Bill.

I probably have to wait another two weeks for a Key Part that is still out of stock.

Maybe i will paint the Brass Pumptop i am waiting for.

I normaly do not like painting my stuff, if i add colour i will use Vinyl Tape.

I try to keep colours to a minumum silver white and Black. Some red  from the Fans will give it a little glow when the fans spin.

If the Alphatier calls for it i will do some decoration, it is always a proces and since it is my private Build i can take my time and do what i want.

First run of flushing the Monsta with Tab water
ONE Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 180mm Triple Radiator eats up 1.2 Liters of fluid !!!!
Next run will be distilled water. I do not use extra chemicals . Just a good long run of water.
Wasting water is no issue in Germany

I changed in and outlet a few times, used warm water and gave it a good shake a few times.

The great feeling when you get the Parcel you waited for forever and when it arrives you have to go to work .

There will be some Updates soon.

A BIG thank you to Alphacool, Aquatuninig and Hardwaremax for helping me out with the Parts

So many new toys for Alphatier. I played around to find a nice loop route unfortunately not everything that looks good is practical. That is because the quick disconnects need some tube slack to work well. I am really glad i can detach the radiator frame from the Mainboard part it helped a lot today. And that is also the reason i need the 4 quick disconnects. And i also found a good use for the Alphacool packing material. The Foam is really nice to work with;)

Got something done Today . Over the weekend i thought hard how to tackle the Alphatier Storage issue. After spending another 40 € in the Hardware store i can say I am happy with te result.

I also got closer to fix me a pump mount.

Not sure if i use the old 80mm Fan from an old Apple G5 or use the mount that came with the pumptop. What do you guys think.?

I also blatantly want to show of my sleeving skills XD

Making a Pumpmount was trickier than i thought, but now it works fine. But i had to order some special Screws to make it work  kind of good looking. The idea with glue was not my a best one XD

Cables a  love and hate relationship for many Modders. 
A good  cable job can make and break a Build.
With the Alphatier being a very open Build i had too be a bit creative about my cables.
Again i had too buy some stuff ...

I had to make some changes to the Hardwarframe. It was not stiff enough if loaded wit hardware. I also decided to put some Acrylic on the sides so i had to make make some more rails on the sides. The pump mount also got a overhaul so that i can change it out more easy

Finally an update again. I have a new woman in my live that takes up a lot of time.
I made two Side panels. The material is Polystyrol which scratches sooo easy. But working with it for the first time was a good experience. 
I play wit the idea to let me made the side panels in Temperd Glas. Not sure depends how much that will cost.
