Hi dear community.

1- Why a water cooling club and gallery picture?

Exist two main reasons for this: First one is give to the users that has never use water cooling a little idea of how it's looks in a case and power. Second one, but not less important, give to the users that want change to water cooling advices and ideas of what components are the best themselves.

2- Rules

a- Max resolution is 1920x1080
b- Only FOUR pictures per rig in thumbnails mode, if you want add more just post the link
c- Do not quote pictures, just post. For delete the picture remove the [/IMG] at the end of the post that you are quoting.
d- Please, only add finished rigs, not worklogs.

3- Additional things

a- You can post as many rigs as you have always that you meet the rules
b- You can post old rigs that you no longer have, always that this were built by you
c- H50, H70 and in general any water cooling kit are valid too.
d- The member list will be updated as soon as possible.


Special credits for this idea goes to ortoklaz.

If you have questions, feel free to ask it or contact me. Enjoy it and post your rig ;)

Looks very good. What blocks? Good cable management btw, except for those at the end of mobo.

Yeah the cables on the bottom ..there is no way around it they are connected to single brackets(light switch and one fan controller and will probably get rid of it in the future..removable PSU divider is on the way) ,my once per year all out cleaning is approaching and will replace my res with Monsoon while i'm at it

Excellent idea...this is something we needed. It would also be a great place to add links to threads containing build logs as well.

Nice rig !

All the parts, except for the feet that I made, are from Koolance. Between the radiator and the machine is the control card in a cage I made for it. They were all meant to be mounted differently but I mated them together.

Just a few. I will get some pictures of the better ones at a later date.

You talking to me?

The bottom one is a DangerDen Gtx 480 waterblock that I installed my self. When I bought the original card it was $680 and the waterblock costed me $180 ($960.00 Total not including shipping). There was no way I was running them air cooled.

The top one is an MSI GTX480 Hydrogen with a AuquagrafX cooler.
Heard some people in other forums calling them EK blocks and Heatkiller blocks, Honestly i'm not sure. I bought it on sale on newegg for $300.00 with the cooler so I couldn't pass it up..
(had a lot of bad reviews on newegg, but they only sold a few, and I haven't had a problem with it. Works flawless. Think it was just a fluke that first few buyers got bad ones, so people avoided them, and newegg decided to dump them cheap I guess. I got lucky. Wasn't easy talking my wife into letting me buy it. :D  )

I was hoping the hose adapters would line up as they looked similar in the picture, but they didn't, thats why I have the funny loop connecting the cards. Pain to bleed, and I prefer a clean look. I'd like to replace the AuquagrafX block with another DangerDen block. Love DangerDen.

That was the coolest thing I have seen about water blocks for GPU's

Yeah the msi block is a heat killer lol well same design

Thanks :) 

Took a little bit of modding with the rear fan and fan plate on the front 200mm rad, but I managed to get it all in there.

It's too bad that it's summer, ambient temps are like 24C, so my temps during benching get up around 60C (when OC'd to 4.0, although I think I should play around with the settings a bit more, see if I can get everything stable at lower voltages). Might try to find a big (250mm I think - 2x2 120mm fans) fan to fit on the mesh side panel to replace the window.

Next step is to get a mobo and ram that match the color scheme. But that might have to wait until IB comes out.

Took an hour to upload 5 images (each less than 2MB) the at the end of the upload I get an error saying "no images have been uploaded" :fou: 

The when I do get an img uploaded and try and display it, it doesn't display at all using tags!... and then someone closes my test thread in the testing subsection : / :pfff:

I guess I'm the Black Sheep of this little club, but my water cooling is for CPU performance only, for the maximum overclocks I can get from it.

I tried the radiator route but it just fell way short on the 2500K Sandy Bridge, as my goals needed to be below ambient room temperature, here's my solution.









The cooler is a 54qt cooler, presently running 6 gallons of water, it gives me the advantage of taking a long time to heat a massive volume of water, even if the water is at ambient room temperature and when overclocking and testing I just drop in a frozen gallon jug of water or two.

I've wasted a lot of money to finally settle on this, and the performance results are extremely satisfying! :D

Thanks German, This has allowed some interesting discoveries regarding overclocking the new Sandy Bridge K series of unlocked CPUs.

Discoveries that the mass majority is completely clueless about, being able to directly control water temperature test levels, adds a whole new information gathering level to the mix.

Wow, can you post some benchmarks of you overclock pls, curios what that thing can do at 5.1ghz. :D
