X-TOP for my 655


4-Gelid fans; 2 PWM, 2 TC


Some fittings....


The heart of the beast!!!! i love this.. very shiny and high quality build!!!



****EDIT: 5/12/2010****
The pump with stock top.... fugly..... lol and i thought i needed to use some screwdriver to get it apart.... apparently just some twisting will do..


Before the sleeving with Vantec UV "red" lol


Poor man sleeving done



Woot... the top ... i love the material!! smooth and high build


Look at all those crap and the original O-ring is disgusting....


After cleaning the crap and installed the rear... is that where the replacement O-ring supposed to be?


Top is beautiful!!


Teflon tape in all the thread of the fittings (read it from some forum somewhere that it's to prevent further leaks?


Pump is ready!


Is this going to be overkill? lol


The cpu block with the rotaries!!


To prevent dust/contaminants while I m assembling other parts... lol

***EDIT: 5/21/2010 ****

Preparing the rad.... hot tap water





after preparation, will do one more time flushing tonight... i put the masking tape to prevent me from damaging the fins when i shake the rad.. lol and yes it did help.. i didnt notice i was grabbing the rad so hard when i shook it...



***EDIT: 5/27/2010 let the installation begin... first day ****
Before watercooling...




i think my TIM application is correct for the hyper 212+ isnt? wonder why i was getting 40C idle, 90C load


EK backplate installed!!! was worried about the height .... i think it's higher than motherboard standoffs, but i guess since it's rubber in the middle, it should be squished..


Base of EK Supreme HF... oooh shiny!!!


EK SUPREME HF installed!



fans on the rads... nothing special here, except that HWL gave me long screws that werent long enough to go through the case-> fans -> rad mounting holes............. so that caused the delay (had to get longer m4 screws from home depot)


moving on.... i installed the res brackets closely together cz there's not enough room in my HAF932.... i felt like i went back to my antec 900 case.... LOL



the pump on haf932 metal 5-1/4" bracket ... this has been revised to two metal brackets and different mounting position



My original plan was to mount it on the bottom fans.... but not sturdy enough....


here comes the fun part.... tubing........ lol and thanks to Steers for lending me his KwikCut



Before ending the night... lol love the uv blue effect!



before going to work.. lol had to take one in a hurry so that i could upload the images to imgshck


my fill port.... humm i should've gotten the TFC fill/drain port pass through connector, since i think head is bigger and probably will fit the haf932 fill port hole much better... oh well...

Seems interesting. My own Hyper 212+ isn't doin so great either. at 1.3Vcore at 3.8, thing goes to tjmax and throttles so I'm considering water too or maybe a couple remounts.

Question!!

1. If i install my rad on the top with push pull config, should i take in air from outside or blow air to outside?

2. Which jet plate should i use? should i just use the one that they put in there, or change to one of the other plates?? thanks!

Heat has a natural tendancy to rise, so work with that dynamic and allow the fans to push air up through the rad and out of the case- it will result in an overall cooler system. The air might be a tiny bit warmer that you're sending up through the rad when taking air from in the case, but the flow will be improved when working with the heat gradient, and warm air won't be concentrated in the case and warming up other components.

ahh i c... since i will be using a dual rad, what if i let the air blow into the case and put another 120mm case on the last slot at the top of the case? (closest to the top mount psu?) or that fan wouldnt have any bit effect? lol
