Finished my 1st Water Cooling Tags: Heatsinks Water Cooling Overclocking Last response: July 3, 2010 3:45 PM in Overclocking Share cygone June 27, 2010 10:41:08 PM 1stly, Just like to point out, sorry these pics are so large. Took about 20hrs to strip old system and rebuild into new chassis with Water Cooling. Fan power and cable management were a nightmare, espectially as I dont use a modular PSU. Can someone please comment on the resevoir. System had been up and running for about an hour when these pics were taken. Why are they 100s of little air bubbles forming on surface of the water?

Ask ! Get the answer cygone June 28, 2010 5:17:21 PM Few changes comming up, gonna switch around the inlet / exhaust pipes on the radiator this evening. This will remove a large amount of curving from both pipes that run: Pump > Rad and Rad to Block. Will also find a 22nd Antec 1200 blanking plate to fill the last remaining hole where the pipes come from. P.S only modding that was required was cutting of the plastic around one of the fan holders and drilling of the lower res mounting bracket (the gpus got in the way of the mounting clip) I did use the fans/holders/blanking plates from 2 Antec 1200s (RMAd one, as came incomplete, LOL). I noted a 11 deg C drop at idel (from H50 push/pull) and a 21 deg C at load temps. Not tomention the -20db noise level (with fans at Low) If anyone has any questions how the radiator is mounted I would be happy to share. cygone July 1, 2010 6:45:12 PM done and done, also as mentioned switched the rad pipes over for less bendy tubes, well happy with it now, twistedspark July 2, 2010 12:02:10 AM Looks great! One question though. With the PC case there, when you sit down to play, where you gonna put your feet? cygone July 2, 2010 10:38:41 PM loads of room for legs / feet, can also rest legs on top of pc if i so choose =) tkgclimb July 3, 2010 3:45:32 PM I like the drive mounts, I assume those are to let the radiator fit, in the front.
