Wow! That looks sweet! I'll be using that case for my i7 build too, but sadly, I can't afford to put it under water.

The sleeving is from Sidewinder Computers. It's about the best I've seen around. I used the 1/2" sleeving for the tubes. This sleeving is stiffer and thicker than any other sleeving I've seen, so it helps the soft thin-walled tubing keep its shape. I think on my next build I'm going to use thicker-walled tubing. This stuff is nice and small, which is good for this build, but it is soft and looks like it will kink really easily.

Hey zlojack, that look SEXY :P.. Look real nice!!

You do know that murdermod sells sleeving kits right, are pretty affordable, for $40 you get quite a bunch of it, and for $60 too much of it.. Unfortunately he has them in USD, not sure why.

But the sleeving job is marvelous.

edit: noticed you used up a Evga X58 rather than a Gigabyte.. And results looks real nice, how do you like the board yourself personally?

I saw their kits, but I had a specific application for my sleeving and the stuff from Sidewinders was perfect. Also...MurderMod is pretty expensive for what you get.

I haven't really had much chance to push the EVGA yet. Just getting to know the bios today and installing the OS and stuff. Still more to go

Hmm, you should start OCing and report back, since I'm getting that board too. Also, I thought that the EVGA board came with software to OC in OS, did it not?

Good to know.. OC in BIOS is always the best way to go. But you got to give credits to people for making OCing from OS much more reliable than what it was years ago..

And yeah you're right I had a close look at those kits again, it is pricy on murdermod side. Will kick around to see more results

So I just passed 6 hours of Prime95 at 191x21 for 4GHz RAM at 1528 MHz.

It gets really hot, though. I need to reseat my waterblock.
