Re-build of water system

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
OK so i promised a few people i would put up some pictures of my water system rebuild.
unfortunately i don't have any pics of it before i yanked it apart but i did get quite a few while building it.
This is going to be the first of many add-ons to my system so subscribe and ill post pics as often as i can.

So here is the case striped down





Ok so i taped up the top so i had a guide for the dremmel.
DUCT TAPE!!




And here it is cut open. Sorry i only took one picture but it took me a bit to cut it out. I used the extra metal to make mounts for the fan and rad.



Here's the fans/rad mounted (cant really see the rad at this angle)



And now i mount the mother board and then set my block





Now for the hoses and resivoir





And now everything comes back together






This case has abosulte CRAP for cable managment. This is before i cleaned it up. Notice the duct tape holding up random cables . Also have temp sensors on CPU and NB.




And voila! She is Finni'!








So that wraps it up...for now anyways. At the end of the month i will be adding in either my new GPU blocks, RAM (with blocks), or NB block... AND i will be adding a 120mm rad and gettin me some typhoons. Let me know what you think.

PEACE!

Looks cool, but you really ought to get better camera.
I can see every damn pixel of it.
And a front view with bay reservoir would be nice add.

why didn't you use 140mm fans? more CFM for less noise?

i used rubber bushings to eliminate the vibration.

they were just some fans i had lying around. i will be getting some fans that are close to 200 cfm. (i don't care about noise because i have it running in the other room)

My first critique... You didn't use pure distilled. Bad bad bad. When you drain the loop, make sure you don't have clog ups in the blocks. Your res may be stained, and the tubing will most definately be stained. Then again, it's blue so it won't show.

i know that it will stain the tubes but i have stuff that'll take it right off the copper if need be. i'vew used feser 1 for a very long time and i've never had any problems with it.

my temps are 3-4 degrees lower with the coolant vs. distilled water
