    on top of upgrading the loop i also did a few change to my boot drive and game drive. i was running the win on 240g ssd and all games are on the slow HDD. i upgrade them to a 1TB m.2 boot/game drive.

    first fall loop 20190527_071203 by Li Cai, on Flickr lost most of the rgb, the bend is not perfectly 90. after i run the loop clean solution. i scrapped the entire loop and start over. here's the current loop 20190529_153437 by Li Cai, on Flickr i did have to move one of the radiator outside the case, but i got all my rgb back and all the tube are striaght and clean looking. then i notice the vertical mount show pci-e connection. time to do some cover up. 20190530_162143 by Li Cai, on Flickr finally, the fluid arrived today. 20190604_151535 by Li Cai, on Flickr

    well, AIO into hard tube open loop 20190524_144857 by Li Cai, on Flickr 20190524_171414 by Li Cai, on Flickr
  5. lol, only 7 days, give it an 7 you might see some emails/callback, but they will take care of the problem, just very slowly.
  6. anyone try to convert the ML240R into an open loop? i love the RGB, but hate the issue with noise. the pump is kinda noisey and the loop is not full filled. i can hear the air. no leak that i can see. so thinking cut the tube and replace them with hardtube and replace the rad with a full copper version. i was wondering if the pump within the cpu block strong enough to push the flow. just wondering how big are those barb fitting?

    do anyone try to covert an AIO into an open loop? i love the rgb. justwant to just replace the rad with a copper one and add a reservoir. not sure if the pump build within the cpu block have enough juice to push the flow.

  9. no, only 1 cage can fit under the psu cover. but they are 6 more spots for ssd. plus whatever m.2 you mobo have. 1tb ssd now just about to hit $100 mark.
  10. the speed of CM replying to request or RMA is a exponential decay function. i was getting reply every 3 days 2 months ago, which already crazily long, now i got maybe every 7-10 days...again, they might need to hire more than 1 person full time to take care of their customers.
  11. go with the H500m. i am happy with the same, give you more option down the road if you want to water cool your rig.
  12. the ML240L will comes with its own controller, so no need of any rgb/argb header is needed. but speaking for my ml240l, first check out what it will look like in real life first, especially the CPU/pump part, what you see on their site(color and intensity) are not what you will get. check out my build log to see what you will get in person. also, the pump is much louder compared to other AIO cooler, I can hear the air inside the loop each time I turn of my pc, I don't have that issue with other AIO, but it doesnt seem to be affecting the performance. also i have issue with their controller not working, and the customer support just ignoring my question when i seeming for help try to solve the issue. personally, i would recommended go with other AIO.

    finally, i have a little bit of time to do more work with my build, install the aorus and redo the gpu cable route. so it came through the psu cover. almost there, just need to have some time to do the custom cover plate between the Mobo and the front intake fans. IMG_4865 by Li Cai, on Flickr 2 steps forward one step back. well, a less than 2 months old argb fan just fail, still wait on CM support to reply. Untitled by Li Cai, on Flickr the new argb controller also seem to be problematic, once i upgrade the firmware the reset button no longer can change color, the CM support just completely ignores my question... not sure whats going on with that. slow reply on top of just ignoring customer's issue...... i dont see how this kind of customer service will fly......

Aorus 1080ti Xtreme finally shows up. need 2 x 8 pin, just finished sleeving the cable, then i found out my cable grommet and cable comb got delay. school start tomorrow, i was hoping to have everything finished before that.
