I was just kidding about using both. Kinda like using a condom and a diaphram... Double protection!
I saw that but figured others may not get it so was just being careful ..
I know a lot of stuff (mechanically) but I am a bit of a dunce when it comes to internet stuff and forget to explain why I say things sometimes..
Thanks for the info but I already ordered my parts which hopefully will be here tomorrow but probably Friday. I have a bunch of Feser 1/2" barbs but they are half the length of the Swiftech's I also have which scared me into getting the hose clamps MK is so fond of That is why I ordered some EK barbs from Sidewinders.
I just received my new toys(2x Swiftech MCP355 pumps, XSPC dual pump res, and another EK Supreme HF nickel/acetal) and I have to say Sidewinders is friggin AWESOME
Hopefully I'll get to start setting it all up tonight but gotta remind myself to go to Wally World and pickup some more distilled H2O. Gotta go to work
Did you get the new clamps, too?
I didn't get clamps but I did get some EK barbs to complete the "EK cycle". The only reason I used those ugly hose clamps was because the Feser barbs I ordered were half the length of any barb I've used before and was scared there wouldn't be enough hose length past the barb lips.
I have to say I like the "ridged for her pleasure" look on these EK barbs I'm glad my fiancee isn't here to read that
Did you buy these? They are my favorite barbs.
And these are my favorite Much like the DD fat boy barbs that are legendary!
I have a bunch of those Bitspower barbs. They are nice, but I like the EK barbs because they give a tighter seal.
I've seen the finish come off of some EK ones though.
If you decide you want some, I can pick you up a set (in exchange for the Crossfire bridge) when I make my next order. LMK...
BTW after pricing the EK blocks, I'm very happy you decided to keep the setup. $$Wow$$
I appreciate the offer
Now you see what I'm talkin about If I would have been able to get rid of the mobo block and 5870 block faster it could have been a different story but there is a reason for everything.
I put most of the system back together last night but having issues getting the XSPC res to fit I think due to the rubber grommets.
Now you just need to kill the link in your sig...
Thanks for pointing out my stupidity there Duffman:shadedshu
I was finally able to get the res installed and it already has a plus in my book. Why? Because I don't have to drill holes to make it flush with the front of the case like I had to do with the T3. I didn't get to run by Walmart the other day so progress is gonna have to be on pause til tomorrow evening
Not stupidity, just oversight.
I've been trying to work on it guys but I've been sick as a dog since Thursday and I'm one of those people once sick I can't focus on anything, plus I'm tired as hell so I think it's the flu.
Just so you know though I did get the res and tubing done today, and going to start bleeding her so hopefully all goes well.
Take ur time and get well, we arent going anywhere..
Thought I'd give you guys a pic of her all together. I let her bleed for over 48hrs due to being under the weather and I'm stuck at home again with severe sore throat The spray stuff doesn't taste to bad:shadedshu
I'm gonna make my own front piece for the res when I have time and feel better, hopefully next Wed unless I can work to makeup time lost.
No leaks? (knocks wood)
Hence why I test for more than the 24hr recommendation. Right at the beginning I had two leaks, the top barb on the gpu block and one barb on the res, because they were not tight enough. I was sent home yesterday and still had the test PSU plugged in so turned it on and went to sleep. Woke up to pickup my daughter from school and she was stil purring so left her on til I went to bed last night.
All for now is good
Glad to hear it's working for you. Hope you feel better, dude!
Couldn't update my old build log since these are case mods but here ya go.
Replaced the Yate Loons on the CPU rad with some beautiful Scythe Gentle Typhoons. They are thicker so working on making a new grill.
Reason why it's called Wrigley I etched it into the plexi.
Really nice work on the etching.
Thanks. I did a "Screaming Chicken" for a friend of mine since he was so in love with his Firebird. I figured mine wouldn't be near as tough but boy was I wrong:shadedshu If only I had a projector.
Case looks great. Go Cubs Go!
That's your Wrigley, this is mine:
