My System Specs

Default Build my first loop.

Shes not purdy Goal was a budget loop to lower sound while gaming and mess around with over clocking. But mostly I just find the whole idea cool and fun... 3750k running at 4.7ghz no problem, with little test n tuning. Will be exploring more what I can do with it in time. Sound level isn't very impressive, yet. Still have 6 fans to tie in and then sort out voltage management, I'm betting closing up the case will help too Got about $250 into the loop

Build Notes: Had to do a bit of trimming to the bottom 5.25 bay to get the front rad in. Taped a fan in the 5.25 bays, sits over the rad and in front of the drives. The drives are hot glued to two wooden dowels, jammed across the bay. Hacked out some of the PCI case slots to have fresh air blowing on the GPU (not in photo). Drilled some holes in the Swiftech MC8800 mount plate, to line up with the 7950. Skimmed out too much on fittings, so it will need to be reworked a bit to make me happy. (anyone have... 2x 1/2" barbs, 90 adapter, 45 adapter and some extensions kicking around) Using a plumbing T and some random 3/8" stuff I got for free with a sale. Because HWC sellers are awesome! To make it work for now.

Case - Corsair 550D
PSU - Corsair TX550M
MoBo - Asus Maximus V Gene
CPU - i 3750K (1.3v, 4.7GHz, 80C, quick set up, still need to refresh the stock IHS goop)
GPU - HIM Ice X2q 7950 (1.275v, 1275MHz Core, 1250MHz Mem)/
Ram - Patriot Viper 2x4GB 1600MHz 8-9-9-22-t1 1.35V

Loop in order:
External Rez - Swifttech Micro Rev2 (need fittings currently getto rigged up)
CPU Block - EK Supremacy
Top Rad - Black Ice GT Stealth 240 (2x Bitfenix Spectre 120mm push, 2x Cougar CFV14H 140mm Pull External) Case Exhaust
Front mount - EK XTX 240 (2x Koolance Fan, 120x38mm pushing, 2x stock ? EK fans pull) Case Intake.
Pump - EK-DCP 4.0
GPU Block -
Swiftech MC8800
External Rear Rad - EK 140 XT? (its old) (Silverstone FHP141 38x140mm push, unknown pmw 25x140mm pull) Case Exhaust.

Other fans:
Front in 5.25 bay - Corsair stock 120mm Intake
Bottom - Cougar CFV14H 140mm Intake
Bottom of PCI slots - Corsair stock 120mm Intake
Scythe 4 channel Basic voltage fan controller
