Turtlewax, why isn't your PCI-E bracket on the video card powder coated :( The first thing I did was take that sucker apart and have it done lol. Just spray paint it :)

Kit performs really well. i5 750 @3.9ghz, idle at 29-32c (22ambient) loads at 50ish.
love water cooling. Going to push this chip a little.



More to come as I complete the build.

Not that anyone is ever going to see it, but nice job on cutting out the bottom of the case for the 2nd rad!

Thanks! I am pretty happy with how it came out. The hole saw was expensive, but I am sure I will need it sometime in the future.

Finished this build a few months ago. This is my first water cooling build, the pictures were taken pretty recently, I want to make some changed like add the GTX480 to the loop but just going to put that on hold for a little bit.

Something I have changed now looking at the photo is the way the hose connects to the pump I now have these better looking black hose clamps on it instead of the zip ties.

You dont find the aluminum board on top of the PS to sag? If it does sag - what did you make up to hold it in place?

It did initially sag, but with how hard I had my tubing bend to make it from my pump to my rad allows me to basically use the gromet to pressure fit it and hold it up. Worked perfect.

Does this count????? ;)













Had been running a Hyper 212+ on that, but wanted something that would easily switch between platforms when/if I decide to swap out motherboards. This seemed to fit the bill and offers similar cooling to the hyper 212+. (Zap straps = the new Duct Tape.......).
