I like that the third ties the pump in with the GPUs better, and it feels like it fills out the space a bit nicer too

@Mosquito You're right :). I think I decided to do third version :D.

Cables, cables and even more cables. Now I'm even dreaming about making cables :P.

Aquaero USB, Aquabus between Aquaero 6 and Power Adjust 3, Corsair Link, SATA-DATA x2, few extensions and Molex power cabel for Aquaero.

Top radiator is ready - 140mm fans were treated same as 120mm variants (original sticker was removed, and replaced by vinyl, than cables were sleeved). Every fan received extension and was hooked up to fan splitter on PCB, which will be connected directly to Aquaero.

Front fans are ready :D

Every fan got an extension, which is hooked up to tan splitter in basement. Individual extenders are fastened together to fan mounting screws.

Fan from the back is also hooked up to the same splitter, what required making super long extender, and mounting it some how. Radiator at the top will cover this cable.

All cables come from one place in the basement.

All cables in the project are ready (except flow meter and temperature probe sensors cables, but I will make them when loop is ready). Last two cables I've made are SATA-power and power switch. SSD (Crucial MX200) also got wrapped in black black vinyl.

Little summary of making cabels and sleeving them:

I've used:
- Almost 70 meters of AWG 26 wire
- Almost 40 meters of AWG 18 wire
- 18 meters of black sleeve
- 8 meters of yellow sleeve
- 32 meters of platinum sleeve
- 2 meters of bigger, black sleeve
- 60 cm od SATA sleeve
- 5m of heat-shrink (most when making main cables)
- I've crimped almost 400 pins
- Time that I've spent making cables? I don't even want to count that :P
- Cost? Better not to write

Pass-through drilled through midplate and mobotray, also all tubes are ready.

Finaly I've used 107 fittings, 18 sections of tube - 6 straight and 12 with bends :P.

Few last things to do - cover for SLI bridge and few cables for temperature and flow sensors, and I can fill both loops.

Project is ready. It's been 1 year and 3 months since I've bought the case and started thinking about modifying it. It took me almost 4 last months to build everything as I planned.

Later I will post some benchmark results and informations about temperatures.

Few performance benchmarks.

CPU:

Z7gZY1H.png

Max what I can achieve is 4.0GHz @ 1.35V. Pushing all cores further requires huge amount of additional voltage. RAM was overclocked from 2800MHZ CL16 to  3066MHz CL16.

Drives - both filled with data:

GPU:

Superposition dosen't suport SLI so the result refers only to one GPU

TimeSpy

TimeSpy Extreme

Both cards boost to 2101MHz, memory is working at 11GHz.

About temperatures:

GPU - when watching youtube, reddit etc. they are working fully passive. I've set fans to kick in, when liquid temperature exceed 33 degree Celsius. During non 3d load coolant temerature fluctuate between 28-29 degree. In full load temperature hits max of 35 degree with fans spinning at 450-500RPM. Temperature of cards with that settings - upper GPU - max 47 degree, lower GPU - max 51. Setting fans faster (1000 RPM) reduce temperature to 43 degree, but I see no point in doing this due to noise increase.

CPU - same as GPU, fans kick in when coolant temerature exceed 33 degree. I've turn off all power saving features so even at idle CPU consumes 50-60W. 420mm top radiator can handle this fully passive, but event the smallest amount of load causes fans to start spinning. After one hour of Prime95 Small FFTs I've hit 82 degree @ 950 RPM (coolant 40 degree). During more typical load (Blender) CPU temperature stabilize between 65-70 degree (coolant temperature 37-37,5) @ 800-850 RPM.

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
