Default my water cooling worknig blog

alright finally decided to go with water cooling been doing quite a bit of research and getting advice from expert such as daz and HWC guys been great help thus far

i ordered parts slowly 1 by 1, i am taknig my time building this thing =P

alright first of is the case mod so i can fit this gigantic radiator

this is the part i have to cut to fit the radiator (didn't do a good job here as i am really lack of tools


and ha finally time to fit the rad



alright next up is the GPU water block




stripped apart, i actually ran into a little bump during the process, i stripped one of the back screws but finally manage to take that out too



and then applying the thermal pads



and finally the final product




i ll try to keep it updated much as possible when ever i have time and when ever the new parts comes =P

Nice work on GPU block installation!

This rad just fits barely, make sure youy lift it to allow air to escape or get in.

Yah the green looks great! I've got the red, but the led's don't seem to be working, and I don't have the time to take it apart right now. Oh well eh, I just stuck a ccfl and a 5 uv led unit next to it. Mine looks decent with purple fluid, I'm think the yellow would go good with your reservoir, won't take away from the green so much, and still provide some contrast.
