Arrival this morning:
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
- 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.
Post #1 updated
All components are now bought. Now, I have to wait for the shipping. The build will start soon.
Waiting for my package (which will be sent within a week), I made myself a gift today:
I booked 2 SSD OCZ Vector 256Go I'll get in a few days
They'll replace my SSD Intel 520Series 180Go that will retire in the computer of my brother.
Shipping in progress
5 boites d'embouts Monsoon 13/19 noir mat
6 embouts rotatifs 45° 13/19 noir mat
Capuchons pour embouts rotatifs (bleus et rouges)
Récupération vendredi prochain (10/05) des 2 SSD OCZ Vector 256Go
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"
- EK-Koolant UV-Blue
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.
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 ...
I can start sleeving pending further material and to introduce you to the work nicely, I expect the next few days the arrival of
Sleeve used: UV blue, UV red and black from VedayShop:
Reminder of the desired sheaths disposition:
A few useful tools...:
And "Au boulot":
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.
test with UV:
Done for the first sleeve, my first sleeve
but I realize it's a bit hard to get a good alignment, not to damage the heat shrink ..... so ....
With heat shrink:
It will be without. At least I tried with but the result is not good at all.
24 pins cable done:
There are some small flaws, but it will going to get better.
First part finished :
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.
The "cover" still retains a slight deformation due to the space taken by all. But at least it will not move.
and 2x 8 pins (modular) done:
NZXT Sentry LXE
Bitfénix Recon + NZXT Sentry LXE
6 Bitfénix Spectre Pro Led
Test with Bitfénix Recon
I broke three of them phobya tool kits when sleeving my psu!
I twisted the ATX pin remover. Now I only use the single pointed, but carefully.
2/4 received today
1x Phobya 480 G-Changer V.2
Tuyau Tygon R3603 13/19
2x Top Koolance COV-RP450 (Rev 2.0)

And the guest star:

Thanks to k.limes
-"I'm your father"
I put together a few components to see nearly the volume it takes.
Missing from photo:
- 4 hraphic cards
- additional reservoirs
- additional PSU
- some fans
Waiting for packages, some hardware...
man youre so lucky to play with this hardware! next year ill do a mod again, wish I was sponsored tho.
I cant wait to see this finished!
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)
