wow very nice build log

jeez thats a few months of salary for all that nice gear...

mind if I ask why you chose that particular case over others?

also, where did you pick up the case from?

I currently have the white version of the switch 810, but I've been lazy to swap out my components from my current Phantom Black w/Green....LOL

Thanks

Why this case
My 2 last choice was switch 810 and cosmo II
And chose this one only for the side windows without fan
My first criteria was able to install a 360 and 240 radiator without any mod or cut
And the 810 is perfect for radiator
Support triple 140mm on top + a dual 140mm at the bottom with hard drive cage still in case
And i think its the best case for the price
And the cosmo II is a MONSTER, to big

I don't see any reason why you couldn't mention ANY e-tailer's name on this forum.

Thanks for the info.

Hehehe....... yeah, while we might appear to be biased towards NCIX we're not affiliated with them, and encourage discussion on all legit retail sources. Feel free to mention any retailer so long as you're not spamming us from the retailer itself..... ;)

And yeah, as has already been commented on, that's one mighty fine looking build you've got going on there for something that's "nothing fancy"....... ;)

Thanks for the info, yes I agree its got alot of great features and NZXT seems to really be listening to the enthusiasts and doing a great job

The Cosmos II is nice but once its outfitted its a complete hog....way to heavy

Love your build nice work

i received my last order

funny, the tubing seem to be Orange but its really red


i installed bottom rad, but i forgot the drain port


now the drain port is installed and first leak test


oupsssss, i installe both pump in serial, but dont forget to put back the stop plug on fill port of the reservoir


fish pics
but this is my temp
CPU at 4.2Ghz
Antec KHuler 620: Idle 39, Load 75
Custom Water : Idle 32, load 49

GPU HD7970 XFX OC at 1000
with fan : Idle 60, Load 80 (with furmark)
Water Cooling: Idle 32, Load 49 (with Furmark)
in full load , i have lower temp than idle
but now, noise, yess, the fan on 7970 is like a jet plane
now i will try to OC more the CPU and GPU

Now the pics













Not to bad for a first Water Cooling project
its never finish,
i check PCH temp i think jump to water colling chipset now
and i will change the sli bridge, i dont like it

and by the way the EK back plate work with Koolance GPU waterblock
just need a little bit longer screew than the one Koolance provide
the one with the back plate dosnt work
