Holy. Crap. You're really doing the 800D justice, my man. Bravo.

I'm planning on plain distilled water as coolant with 2 colours of tubing, Black for the cpu and red for the video cards. As for colour of lights i'm going with red and white.
What are you using for a biocide?

From what I gather the Primochill Primoflex Pro LRT tubing has some kind of biocide in it... I've used straight dWater in the past with no problems. What kind of biocide would you recommend?


HOLY smokes these are loud!! thank god for fan controllers









Almost ready to start putting in the remainder of the red pipe..








Something to take note if your using velociraptors and want to put them in the obsidian's hot swap bays your out of luck. The power and sata connectors DO NOT line up they are slightly different then a standard drive... ARGH. I almost had to scrap using them in the build, than found a very tight spot in the front thats just the right size for 2 drives.

If you can, grab one BitsPower TRUE Silver fitting. Silver is a great biocide by itself. Just make sure you are not mixing metals, ie, copper, aluminum, etc. etc. However, most blocks are all copper, so you should be safe. And if you havn't had problems in the past than great Although, I myself would still grab a silver fitting, or two.

They made a second revision of the Velociraptor with connections that do line up. I've only seen a few of them though.


Very nice looking build, can't wait to see it completed!

Went with the Lamptron 5 Channel Fan Controller Military Switch. Right now only 6 channels are being used the top bank is for the top 3 120mm fans and the bottom bank is for the bottom 3 120mm fans. One nice feature with these is when the switch is set to high the LED goes red when set to medium it is blue.
