System installed !
 
Installed my water cooling stuff this evening did not run it since I don't have any distilled water. Heres a couple pics please let me know if I did any thing wrong. The loop goes a follows.

You had a lot of space inside the case for the pump really.. Which would also avoid the tube crossing you have near the cpu.

But nonetheless, looks kool!!

Looks like the loop is set up just fine in terms of overall configuration. As Miggs said it would look a bit cleaner if you brought the pump into the case but its well thought out all the same.

I quite like the way you've mounted the rad.

MpG October 8, 2008 04:44 PM

Yeah, I like that rad mounting too. Technically, you're getting slightly cooler air this way, rather than grabbing what's leaving the case, and it'll be a cinch to vacuum dust out if it becomes a problem. And if you ever feel like a little more cooling power, just bolt a couple of fans on the front of the rad for a push-pull setup.:thumb:

Watch the opening that your tubes are going through - some of those edges look a little sharp - wouldn't want them to rub through your tubing over time. You might have problems with the pump trying to make the case vibrate. If so, some sort of soft-mounting might be necessary, but hopefully not.

Yeah I would also personally use an external rad, I like the idea of cool fresh air hitting the rad first, slightly better temps, and the dust issue..

I forgot to mention, you might want to put something on edges of the hole you cut in the fan position to pass tubing, sharp edges, even put some electronic tape..

I, like everyone else, think thats an awsome way to mount your rad. Would never have thought of it, but its a sweet way of doing it. There is room for the pump inside, but to each his own, and its not too bad.. looks like its bolted on damn good

Now you made me jealous... I'm coming to steal that case of you.. oh hold on.. maybe I'll steal Phobe's MM :P ^^

Neat idea, but looks like bleeding/getting the air bubbles out is not going to be an easy task.

matsta31 October 8, 2008 06:26 PM

Bah try bleeding an MM case :biggrin:, and this will be nothing compared to it :)

Huh, I never had a mcp 655 but where is the inlet and the outlet ?

I tough the outlet was the top of the pump ? If so, filling it will be a bit of a PITA.

It is easier, anyway for me, to have the T at the inlet of the pump when innitially filling it. The way I think your pump works, it wont have water to push it up when you fill it.

Owner of mcp655, tell me what you think ?

MpG October 8, 2008 06:47 PM

No worries, he's got the T-line on the pump's inlet.
