Finished! 1st custom water cooling build

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I finally finished my 1st custom water cooling build. It is pretty much done, except for maybe a little more cable management and such. Thanks for the people who helped me out on the forums. This forum is pretty much where I got all the info on how to do this. Also, thanks goes to juggulo3451 for his youtube video of the gtx 590 block install. If I knew all that was involved money wise at the beginning, I probably would have not done this. But I am glad I did. This was supposed to be a thrifty build. Meaning, I tried to buy the items that were most reasonably priced. I didn't want to spend much money on parts for the "hype".
The tube routing was difficult to plan. We actually mocked it up in 3d before hand, wich actually helped me measure how much tube I needed. I will post some screenshots of that too. The reservoir ended up "just fitting". It is almost too big, but it fits. I had fears over the pumps ability to push the water through all this, but it handles with no problem.

My only true regrets are that the gentle typhoon fans are too hard to buy. The prices are being jacked up sky high, and when some come in stock, they only had a handful. I wish I could have bought them all from frozenCPU and had them sleeved. But because I had to buy from ebay, the cables are not sleeved, and I will have to see if I can do that on my own later. I probably won't. Other than the typhoon scandal, everything was cool.

Anyways, Don't troll on me plz, this is my first build. Check it out.

That looks great! You might want to clean up the back a little and do some wire management, lol.

And here I thought my 800D was a huge case, lol. Where did you buy it? I cant find any links to that case anywhere.

@liljoejoe54, Yes I should try and clean the back up some more. It is pretty stuffed though, haha. I just wanted to show you guys!
The case is from the depths of MORDOR!
Caselabs on overclock.net (here) sells them. They make them to order. They have a vendor page I think. I can't stress how big this case is. I still laugh at it when I look at it
