Looks really nice tbh.. Did you actually put those leds on the ram module (fan) and the back exhaust fan, coz' they match up.. looks like a custom job..

UV effect = Koool !!

Good ol' serendipity at its finest! That's the OCZ RAM cooler and the exhaust is just a $5 Coolermaster TLF-S12 (I also have three on the roof, one in the front and one underneath for the ginomobile effect).

Thanks!

Alright, I thought I throw my case into this post. After cleaning up the wiring and cables, it looks a little better.

Default Revamped cooling ....

Forgot to send an updated picture of my watercooled PC... See page 17 for initial loop.

I'll be making modifications to the loop soon (ie. EK reservoir and radiator layout change), so here it is in its current form :

The 3 watercooled components:

1. E7200 @ 3600mhz w/ 1.35vcore : 25 idle - 46 load
E7200 @ 3800mhz w/ 1.45vcore : 29 idle - 52 load (I have a crappy cpu)

2. HD3870 @ 850mhz core : 28 idle - unknown load ; right after some heavy gaming, it's around 35 and falls back down rapidly (don't monitor during gaming)

3. Northbridge @ 1.4volt : 30 idle - 33 load

I want to swap out my MCP355 for a newly acquired MCP350 w/ EK top (stripped apogee drive - thanks Varroa) to have less heat dump, and noise, from the pump.

Overall I'm satisfied, since it's really not a top-end WC kit... I just don't like how it looks right now, it's kinda messy (for me)

New to this forum, thought I would share mine.

It's an aluminum case I built from scratch last winter.
