My System Specs

Default Good Things in a Small Package - My H2GO Build

Alright...I finally got around getting started on this badboy today.

Hardware is as follows:

Gigabyte GA-X58-UD5
Intel Core i7 920
Mushkin Triple Channel XP3-1600 7-8-7-18 6GB
EVGA GTX Core 216 SC (up to tri-SLI *still deciding whether to wait for 55nm or not*)
Etc. etc.

Cooling will be done by:

2 Thermochill PA 120.2
1 Themochill PA 120.1
6 Scythe S-Flex SFF21G 1900 RPM on a Rheobus
2 MCP655s with EK tops
Danger Den Tieton Blocks
A whole crapload of BP fittings
3/8" ID-1/2" OD Tygon R3606
EK Supreme Acetal

I'm not the best at taking photos and my workspace doesn't have the best lighting, but I'll try to get some decent pics for everyone.

Here are some shots of my new gear.


The chip



The Board



A few of the fittings


Custom Dual-chamber drivebay reservoir by CD. Designed specifically for my MM H2GO build by zlojack, built by CD.


Drain ports and pump mounting pics:

Here's the concept


This is how the pumps will be mounted (don't freak out, if at all possible, I'll change the 90 degree fitting on the pump outlet to a 45)




Making holes in my beautiful case was a tough thing to do



Pumps now mounted. I hope the BP fitting is strong enough to hold them. I may put some Petras Gel Stuff wedged underneath them to brace it and take some of the weight off of the rotary T.

Hot damn that's a pile of sweet looking kit!!!

Couple of questions... what kind of cement was used for the custom res, and I notice you've got both 3/8 & 1/2" tygon, which is going for which loop?

I'm not sure what cement was used. I'll ask CyberDruid.

As for the tubing, that 3/8" ID-1/2" OD

Well, I haven't actually bought it yet. But that's the one I've decided to get.

Great timings, decent price (relatively speaking) and of course, you get great support from Greg.

This ought to be sweet when finished! Just keep an eye out on thoes feet for the case. I bought a set for my own MM case, and they were garbage. Not only were they so thin that the mounting screws actually poked out the bottom, but the standard MM case thumbscrews could still hit the ground with the feet installed. I had to had some padding underneath to buy myself an extra 1/4".
