Man that's looking sweet!
Later you are getting a gpu waterblock too though? That's basicaly the only part at the moment which doesn't fit the colour scheme :P And where's that pump/res combo going to go?
I'd might personally use one 45° fitting from the radiator to the CPU at the begin of the hose. Would make it look tighter and less "hangy". Although suppose it fits somewhat as there's that long tube running arcross the system depending on where you tape the pump .
Anyway :P Top notch and extremelly inspiring!
The pump/res is staying where it's at. It is held in place by industrial strength velcro, so it isn't going anywhere.
I'm not sure if I'll add a GPU waterblock or not, I may, eventually, but there's no plan to as of right now. I may have a pinstriper paint those letters white though, so they match the color scheme. The only upgrade that I have in mind, as of right now, is adding another Vertex 3.
Awesome job Noteworthy! And congrats on finally being able to be back on a real rig!
Now go accept my Rift invite and buy a month so I can has free month. :P We can also get a free fire-horse. lol
looks good, also, there is nothing wrong with crossed tubing

Handles everything flawlessly and idles at 30c basically silently.
No, because there's multiples ways to make the that loop order work. Somebody already mentioned the 45-degree elbow fitting option. There's also the option of flipping the radiator around. I just found it funny becauseyou made it out to be impossible when the solutions are relatively simple. My preference is for a simple tubing change because elbows add flow restriction and you never know exactly when you might add a loop component and be forced into an even tighter bend.
Still waiting for my 3570k to arrive (I'm still hoping IB will be worth it...), but here is a minor update on my build:
- All components more or less mounted in place. As I said, still waiting for the CPU.
- Cable management done. Spend around 50 cable ties (not kidding). I would not recommend the FT02 to an inexperienced builder unless they don't mind having a cable mess. I guess the sleeved cables do add to the bulky-ness, but still. Getting the 24-pin connector to not cause a huge bump in the side panel was pretty exhausting.
The specifications are (or will be when it's done):
- Silverstone FT02
- i5 3570k cooled with an H80 in push-pull
- ASRock Z77 Professional
- 16GB Corsair Dominator GT (8-10GB as a RAMDisk)
- ASUS Radeon 7970
- ASUS Xonar DX
- Samsung 830 128GB SSD
- Corsair AX750
