I finally managed to get my hands on some cablemod cables

I'm little disappointed about the colour, I thought they were brighter, but anyway still a big improvement both on the aesthetics and the cable management.

Then after replacing the cables some heat gun again to complete the work

And finally some lights

New ssd arrived and promptly installed.

I had a small problem with a tube that was too short due to a wrong test fitting, but besides this the tubing went way much more smoothly than the other time! Here during the leak testing with all the tubes in place.

And once that was done I filled the loop with the coolant and started the bleeding.

While doing some cable management I realized that with the inverted layout I need only straight sata cables, therefore I'm stuck again. But while waiting the data cable and the cablemod ones, I proceeded inverting the front panel

These couple of days I finally came out with a plan for the tubes, therefore it was time to take out the heat gun and do some bends

And I managed to complete almost all of them

And prep everything for the leak test

But unfortunately on the last bend I discovered the tube is too short for my route therefore I had to stop.

Now I'm looking to get a visual flowmeter or something similar to overcome the shortness of the tube, any other suggestion?


In the meantime I took out the old pc while waiting for this build to finish. Does this count as a desk pc?!

Looks like it was fun!

I'm dealing with the cable management at the moment and as it turned out it's all but fun. Honestly I didn't anticipated this but with the inverted layout all the connectors are where they shouldn't be and the manufacturers haven't considered it.

Lucky for me I thought to do some cable management before the tubing, also because I had to move again the motherboard tray and psu
