Hello everyone!

A very little update since I did very little on the build today.

I installed the green LED power and reset switches which I have no pictures since it's pretty straight forward

After that I receive a small order from Dazmode to be able to complete the connection of the 2 bottom rads and also installing the drain plug.

You will see in the pictures that I didn't bind any acrylic there not because I was too lazy but for practical reasons. The bottom port on the RX360 will be squeezed in a bunch of wires from the PSU so I wanted this part to be more solid for security reasons. The bottom port on the RX480 must hold the drain plug so I can't bend all the way through the radiator. But at least there's a straight piece of acrylic and 2 sweet Ghost fittings in there.

Here are the pictures of the completed job...










Have a nice evening!

Congrats on the mention. Always feels good when you get mentioned by a manufacturer.


From looking at the compression fittings for the acrylic, it seems that there is a small space around the compression ring and the acrylic tube. Do you think I'd be able to fit sleeving under the compression ring or no? I've already ordered a bunch but it won't arrive for at least a few weeks.

Thanks! I have to say that I was very surprised!

For the sleeving, I wasn't sure so I tried it and unfortunately it won't fit

There's indeed a small gap but not enough for a layer of sleeve. I used MDPC, I don't know if another brand would be thinner but I don't think so.

Thanks!

The tubes comes in straight pieces. You have to bend them to your liking. You need a heatgun to "soften" the tube and after that it's the artist job.

To cut you can use a skill saw, a hobby saw or simply a dremel. I use the dremel and it work fine I just bought some larger acrylic cutting wheels.
