Shrink Way Wielder
- Nov 1, 2015
- Issue #1 : I connected the reservoir to the rad. Fortunately it fits into the case, with almost no clearance thanks to the extra G3/8 adaptor though.
However, I used some 16/10 tubing to connect the reservoir to the pump and the result is not OK... the short hose section is too rigid and too much force is applied to the reservoir fittings.
Also too bulky for such a small case.
Fortunately, there are solutions !
- Issue #1 : removing the reservoir and modifying the radiator by soldering a filling port, so I can use it as a reservoir. Pretty much like an EK Predator AIO.
As you mentioned it, I find the idea to use the radiator a reservoir very appealing SFF-wise !
Much cleaner, smaller, easier and practical.
We finally settled on soldering two fittings : one fill port on top, and one outlet at bottom, to further increase clearance between the pump and case.
Clever way of filling the res!Upon my friend's advise, I will fill the loop using a syringe and some 10mm ID tubing : I'll be able to see when the system is filled to the maximum without flooding my case
Since the syringe tube is very small, the air will have plenty of room to escape.
Link?EDIT : I just found this little guy on eBay for $10. I had been looking for it for more than a year !!
11 mm high.
@Thehack : do you think this 20AWG wire could be used for the AC input harness ?
The wires length should be around 190 mm.
Max resistance is 36.4 ohms / km.
I would have liked to see that, no vid? Not enough hands I bet...Bleeding the loop using a syringe through the newly added fill-port did not take more than two minutes.
I am quite happy with my BlackSilent Pro 60mm.
- Find quieter fans ?
Proper SFF build without empty space as I like them!
Is that a capacitive switch we see on the bottom right?
And is it another switch wrapped into some rubber, on the left, half under the pump?
I would have liked to see that, no vid? Not enough hands I bet...
However it's good to know the syringe with small tubing worked fine!
Cool, will have to try one!It's a Piezzo switch from Apem. Very low profile and elegant solution !
You probably did it, but tilting the case is a good way to get rid of bubbles hidden in some corners.Once filled to the max, I ran the pump briefly to get rid of a big bubble and I was done !
Moto Defy+ here, you beat me by a year in the vintage stuff! And d*mn, you also beat me by a few mm in phone SFF!I just have an iPhone 4 ahah ! With my i7 3630QM, I guess I stay true to my passion for vintage stuff !
