    For the moment, I have at home

    I'm waiting for items that are currently in France with a friend. He prepares a large package with everything I miss and awaits my two Swiftech Komodo HD7970 + waterblock bridge, and my two graphics cards HIS IceQ X ²-GHz Edition. I am obliged to do so to procure hardware as few websites selling ship to Reunion, so I spend my orders on sites that interest me, I send the equipment his home and after he sends back me all.

    Already in the package:
    - Phobya 480 G-Changer
    - 2x Phobya Radiator Stand - Black - Triple 3x120mm
    - Tygon R3603 13/19
    - Koolance Top Laing D5 (PMP-450-S)
    - Phobya Front Faceplate - 2 Displays - Black
    - Temperature Sensor Outer Thread G1/4 with Display - Blue
    - Temperature Sensor Outer Thread G1/4 with Display - Red
    - Phobya Power Supply Modding Tool Kit
    - 2x Alphacool Cape Fuzion Core 10

    Waiting for:
    - 2x HIS HD7970 IceQ-X² GHz Edition
    - 2x Swiftech Komodo HD7970
    - Komodo bridge CF

    Normally, he receives the rest in 15/20 days and I will have the package in about 1 month.

    Pending receipt of the rest of the hardware, I prepared the config that will replace the current during work on the project. I call it "temporary config".

    So this afternoon, doing a little tour of the stuff in stock and not used for the project, I was able to:

    - Zalman Z9 + PSU Corsair CX-600

    - MB ASUS P8Z68-V

    - CPU Intel i5-2500k

    - GPU Gainward GTX580 "Phantom" 3Go

    - WB cpu EK Supreme-HF

    - WB gpu EK FC-5X0-GW with backplate

    - 2 rads 120mm

    - fans 120mm

    - fittings: EK en 13/19

    - Hose: 13/19

    - XSPC "X2O 750 dual bay reservoir pump"

    no leaks detected after a few hours.
    It only remains to connect the circuit to the config and start the interim config.

    There are only 2X120mm rads because I can not put more in this case.

    That's only one loop? Too much tubing. You could have probably done the loop with about a third of what you used. :(

    :rolleyes: I know it but I did it quickly, and it's just for a short use. It will thereafter disassembled.


    Still waiting for the shipment of 4 packages with the heavy equipment watercooling expected late August, early September.
    So in the meantime, I bought:
    - 3 SSD 256GB OCZ Vector (to go with the one I have already)
    - 2 HIS HD7970 IceQ-X ² (to go with the 2 GHz Ed arriving soon)
    - 1 Asus Titan (for another project)

    And this morning a package arrived ...

    This time, I use my kitchen torch as the heat gun would be a bit too much noise at this time and could disturb the household.

    First part finished :

    non-modular cables

    [​IMG]

    And now we must put it all in the small aperture size, not intended for sheathed cables ...
    So after a few serflex used to gather groups of cables, I push hard and finally power case is closed.

    [​IMG]

    The "cover" still retains a slight deformation due to the space taken by all. But at least it will not move.

    It's very hard without sponsoring. For this mod, I just have (since today) Bitfénix sponsoring me with fans Spectre Pro PWM (the only component missing). It's my first mod, so it was difficult to have sponsors at the beginning. I hope I'll have more for my next mod (start expected by the end of this mod + 1-2 months)
