May as well make a worklog now for it.

This is one of the side panels from a Danger Den Double-wide I will be building. The rest of it is still being painted. Air-brusher = www.stevenunez.com
rig will be Asus Rampage II - Quad SLI 295s (at least until Nvidia gets me Fermis and until I get a Rampage III) and modest i7 920 until I get a 980x. 12 Gigs of Corsair Dominator, full Danger Den water-cooling except Koolance GPU blocks and reservoir/pump unit. Painted PSU, two painted Feser 480 rads.

Had a few days home between trips so I got started . . .still waiting for four 480s and an Asus R3E . . .
First, I get my fittings sponsored and I do not want to shell out cash for those nice black ones so . . .

Will have to touch them up after installing but such is life:

Still waiting for fitting extenders so for now I am using other ones to test fit. I am using a set of Koolance manifolds to allow me to do a nice parallel setup. Will it perform well? Who knows?

The optical bay is one the back in this rig. It will house a Martix Orbital Typhoon display, one of the cool new Lamptron fan controllers, and a blue ray drive. I am thinking about stealthing the bay with modders mesh.

Using AC Ryan fan grills for contrast with the case.

Also will use inline temp sensors since I am using Asus ROG boards

By the time I get home from Miami I should have a sleeved PSU from Performance PCS and hopefully will know if I need to do short-term build with my existing hardware (have to be at a show on April 30th) or if my new stuff will be here.

Leak testing . . .I realize this type of loop is a little different but then I love to experiment . . .if it does not work well I can always change it and will have to redo it all when my Rampage 3 and 480s come in . .

Good GNUs . . .I am on Brimstone now . . it fired up just fine . . .temps are not horrible. Temp 1 and 3 are the inline sensors (in the in and out manifolds). Only a 2 degree delta. Thought it would be more. Going to fire up some Bad Company 2 before finishing it up. . .

It all looks so amazing but there are two things that kind of take away from it. The really cool SLI bridge and the tubing. I love the color but it "looks" a little confusing. Everything else is so neat and clean and bad ass but the tubing just doesn't fit. Oh, the blue wrap is a little odd.

I hate to say anything about it at all other than to just sit an drool. but you did bring it up. LOL/

getright here are updated pics. Today I am changing out the light for LED strips which will look better. The blue cable was temporary as you can see. The tubing glows red under UV light which you cannot see here.
