My first serious watercooling build. Enjoy the pron.
Very nice to be able to consolidate this log into one post.
Primary setup on Air
Then I got the watercooling bug... bigtime.
My first EKWB... classic acetal Supreme HF.
and the XT360... added DiNoc straight away.
With some TFC Triebwerk 55mm shrouds.
and a nice little EK 100mm rez on DDC pump up front in the drive bays.
oh, and an EK FB and some Darkside sleeved Extensions
lazy man's window from the CM Store...
Lights out and rockin Red... all from just the mobo light and one Enermax140mm exhaust fan
When I added the Bitspower Galaxy RAM block, I realized two things...
1) I'm really addicted to this
2) I have no drain port...
Impossible to find blocks for the 460's... so I got a pair of DCII 560ti448
Totally no good on air... bottom card hit low 90's on load... boo urns.
I fixed up the spagetti with a few 90's and some spacers.
Now, the mods... going to add second rad to drive bay region.
My first ever Dremel work too.
nicely fits a XTC280
Like the HAF, hate the side panel logo... more dremel!!
Covered in DiNoc
Overkilled with Tape of the Gods
Lil Bungz... he's 4. Likes to help out!
front panel switch for the lights
Roof panel from HAFX...
Doesn't quite fit...
Corrected the I/O panel to fit, retained the USB3, sleeve with Darkside
No drive bay.. no problem... Tuniq Sanctum housing WD Black with Bitfenix Sleeved SATA cable
Fits nice in the basement
Blanking panel for drive bay with lights
And a nice little hide the PSU mess cover
then the 680GTX was released, and I knew my peen wasn't big enough with out it.
EKWB CSQ design... then one you can't see once its installed.
And swapped out the tube and added IceDragon Coolant... YUM!
My EKFB sprung a leak... so it was a good thing I didn't shit can the old ASUS blocks
Then a pump died... sad!!!
Then I started seeing my tubes turn pink... (stain from prev red tubes residue in rads.)
Replaced the FB block with one from MIPS... and tried out a little Mayhems dye
