Default Corsair 600T with 360mm rad

So i decided to replace my H100i with a custom water loop. I decided to go with XSPC's Raystorm kit with the D5 pump, res and EX360 radiator.

Here's the list:

Guts
Corsair 600T
Asus Crossahir IV Formula
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
Patriot Viper Black Mamba 1600Mhz 2x4GB
Corsair AX860 PSU (custom sleeved cables)
XFX R7950 Double D
Vertex 4 128GB

Cooling
D5 Pump
XSPC EX360 Radiator
Raystorm block
XSPC 5.25 Bay Reservoir
ekwb premixed blood red coolant
3 X Corsair SP120 (Radiator Fans)
1 X Corsair AF120 (Rear Fan)
Stock 200mm fan (Front Fan)




I started by stripping the case empty and cut out a spot for the third fan



Mounted the water block and installed the motherboard


I decided not to use the LEDs it came with since they are blue. I've got red ones coming in soon


Sleeved the wires of the pump


Originally my plan was to have the barbs of the rad in the rear of the case, but the 4-pin connector and some of the I/O was blocking it


Mounted the rad and ran my tubing to see if it kinked anywhere





Filled the loop and am currently leak testing

Looks great! Welcome to the wonderful world of custom WC! (Did you call the bank to have your credit limit raised??? ;) ).

This is the first time I've had a look at one of those blocks... does the water flow through the acrylic?

Looking good man. And this is how it starts, next will be your GPU. Let the water cooling addiction begin.

Tell me about it. I already have a 200mm rad on the way. Gonna do push/pull with the 200mm fans that came with the case.

There is basically none, the grill touches the frames of the fans. I had to cut out the support beams going through it.

And to answer your question, from what i could tell, it does.

Power supply is in. I didn't sleeve the sata and molex power cables because we barely see them.


Graphics card in. It's in the third slot cause my first slot doesn't work anymore and it's the only other one thats x16. I really don't like there cause there's not much room for the fans to breath, but i'm not overclocking it so i guess it's not a huge issue. I tried and that card does not want to be OC'd one bit. I lost the silicone lottery with that one.


This is behind the res. I have it going from the Res/Pump > Rad > CPU > Res


And it's pretty much working now but i still have to take care of the lighting. The LEDs are just hanging there, and i have the LEDs on the block and in the res that i'm still waiting for, so more to come.. Also i'll probably be getting a Crosshair V Formula soon because of the whole pcie slot not working thing. And a 200mm Rad is on it's way. So the build is not final just yet.

btw totally misunderstood your question the first time. No it does not go through the acrylic, its a separate part.
