Just thought id show you lot a latest project of mine, for a friend who wanted fancy water cooling on the cheap (if thats possible haha), anyway nearly done now, just got to install windows 8 and do some bench testing...

SPECS AS FOLLOWS.

CASE- Corsair 300R
PSU- Corsair AX750w (with modular sleeving kit)
M/B- MSI 990FX
CPU- AMD FX8120
RAM- 8gb Corsair Vengeance
GPU- MSI 560ti
HDD- 1TB WD BLACK

WATERCOOLING KIT.

2 x 120mm XSPC 50mm rads (with 2 x 140mm & 2 x 120mm fans set up in a push pull)
1 x Dual BAY res with 12v D5 pump
XSPC AMD CPU BLOCK
XSPC UNIVERSAL GPU BLOCK
3/4 OD UV BLUE HOSE
ULTRA BRIGHT UV LEDs

SO heres a few sneak peaks and the link to the full album..( its a shame but the camera makes it out to be alot of blue light, when really theres just a mellow purple haze and the UV tubing lights up well)

Next up will be OCing the hell out of that CPU.

wow, I didn't know this was here... Uther might want to contact the mods and have this thread moved to the watercooling section. Also add this to the Build log threads for others to scoop out your work :) 

NICE JOB though!

I am liking this build...excellent work!

Should I move it to the watercooling forum, or leave it here?

see if you can get a UV filter for your lense. Set to aperture mode and exposure compensation +1. w/ ISO 200.

Should see close to what your eyes can see.

** that looks like an EK amd supreme HF POM top block

***are you using fan adapters to mate the 140 to those rads?

Can I interject with some (light-hearted) criticism?
Get that gfx cards pcie slot cover off and spray it black to match, otherwise another great Uther build, your aesthetics have really come on since your first build mate, you really do come out with some beautifully crafted, yes crafted, not just built machines
C.m. award as well :)
