I like what I'm seeing... any missing components?

Thx mang !!

So do I actually.

The second we decided on a run date , my heatrate increased prolly 10-15 bpm...it's been that way since.However , I've put in probably 30 hours of work since friday and knocked a lotta things offa the list so I'm starting to relax.

-----

Coolant plumbing 3rd wash (Iso) :



-----

Clean :



----------

Here's what else I've done today ;

-Pump housing , top gasket made.
-Pump housing n2 inlet tapped/installed.
-Pump housing front foam installed.
-Inlet line cleaned , insulated.
-LED top plate holed properly beveled.
-Foam gasket for thinktank proper made.
-I'm currently doing the iso wash of the pump.

-------

From an 'operational ' standpoint , I'm 24-48 hours away from being able to put nitrogen in , add iso and dry ice and it'll pump...

There's still work on the venting /trim/wiring/plumbing/etc but I'm happy with the schedule.

--I should know if I have everything in the next week.couple custom cables I hafta have made etc.....

What kind of turnaround time are you going to have if the mobo or other component has to come out mid run? I hope the procedure isn't going to too involved.

Well , the top 3 pieces of the lian-li come off , the vents get disconnected and you just pull off the top.....not really much to it.

The issue with 'turnaround' time is more the temperature.If it's at -70 yah can't just bring it to room temp quickly.....stuff will die that way , it will need to warm up slowly...

I'm wondering how the mobo will handle -70 temps on one part of the board that isn't stressed to badly compared to hotter parts. I would guess thermal expansion is going to be an issue at some point.
Speaking of which, do you plan on drop the alky temps before starting a run or bring it down as things heat up?

I'll be bringing the temp down slowly, with the rig on but idle....we'll go from there.

Thermal contraction could very well be a major issue.we'll find out.
