I agree somewhat, but those cables aren't seen as clearly as the major PSU cables.

Hey Everyone.

Expect a few updates in the next coming days.
I built the loop on monday morning.... but like an idiot I pulled out the pumps 12v cable from its crimp.... So i spent a lot of time Tuesday coming up with a fix. Which I'm happy to say i have with a bit of heatshrink and some well, inspiration lol. The loop is going and temps are great.... but I dont like the look of the tube, and the tube routing. Things are 100% going to change.

Pics tonight or tomorrow..... we'll call this a Beta build because there is a lot more to come and this was just testing out the bugs!

So the system has been set up for a few days now,


Everything running on air, temps were okay, but its about time i get this thing under water.
Up top we have an XSPC EX480 with SP120's in push pull. They're a little loud but I plan on throwing in the Corsair Link System to control the speeds.



In the bottom, we have a Phobya 480 G-Changer V2. Using AF120's for now. (I have 4 left.... giveaways? ;))
I think it looks pretty good as is.... would be a shame to tear it down wouldnt it?



I'm sure these fans will do a great job, however I do want some SP120s there, i think the higher static air pressure will help in cooling at slower speeds.

Let the tear down begin!!!



Pulling apart the GTX660ti's :)


Man galaxy makes some nice cards :)





more later ;)

A quick question,

Who here would like to see a video walk through on how to sleeve your PSU but using the sleeveless method?
Would you guys be interested in that?

That's a beast of case with some beefy cooling.

The sleeving looks sweat can't wait to see what you are doing with the tubing.

*** I would like to see a sleeving guide. For sure.

Hey Everyone!

Sleeving tutorial is up!
I'm working on upping the production quality. I've ordered a few things that should help. Lights, a stability mount for the camera, and potentially an extrenal mic (would need a new cam though, the T1i doesnt have the connections needed :S)


So heres the video!

You could always mod the camera.

Then again, i like new toys, so i can always sell it and buy a new one... i may have an upgrading problem lol

A bit of a different perspective on sleeving is incoming!
