I've done so in the past but I don't have much patience (health issues...) so as not to make my head explode from messing up time and again , i'd rather just buy the extensions. When it comes to certain projects though , i'll do my own sleeving. smile.gif

-changed my case fan for the new cougars Led fan



If ur wondering what are those 2 black things on top of the right fan, they are 2 plates that i use to secure my res/pump combo, thought i will need to find another wat to do it cause they are giving me a bunch of bad vibration noise.


looks good... are you having any issues with your trident on that mobo i have the formula-z but same thing im having issues with recognizing 16 gb, reads 11 in windows every other time at 1866. annoying

I spend a LOT of time thinking out my builds , this one over two months and wont be getting it for another week or two but heres my plan. I need criticism and feedback. To let you know prior to this,

A: I know a 360 rad is overkill for cpu only , plan on getting a gpu block when the 9000 series is released.
B: Will be using SP-120's on the rad
C: It was done in paint by a paint newb so take that into consideration
D: This will be w/ a xspc 360 kit, i jumped up for the d5 pump
E: I'm also an amd fanboy



the xspc barbs will be replaced with bitspower 1/2 x 3/4 fittings
and primochil white tubing 1/2x3/4
of course just using distilled water and a kill coil
i would recommend
1 no kill coil esp with bitspower fittings it is documented ( i dont know about how well but i have seen a few cases on OCN ) to eat the nickel just stick with iandh deadwater OR pt nuke ( the blue one not the other one, the other contains bleach )
2 dont upgrade later just spend the extra 50~100 now and get a full custom loop not a kit, you wont regret doing it now vs doing it now and then later

you can easily do it in the top you can a mod it or be do what i do ... put 2 fans on the top where the holes are and 1 in the bottom ( of the rad ) near the front drive bays

Only problem i got is that i cant get em to boot at any clock or timing higher than 2100 mhz, probably because i have the non-Z version

Silver doesn't eat nickel, it's more likely Bitspower had a manufacturing issue.
In fact silver (Ag) doesn't react with pure water. It's stable in both water and air. Moreover, it is acid and base resistant, but it corrodes when it comes in contact with sulfur compounds.

Well EK will say otherwise. My veiw, it shouldn't if its good plating, but I hate to say most WC nickel isn't the best.

I had way better temps with my raystorm block in copper than with my new Ek nickel block, sadly i sold the raystorm to a friend of mine.

I cringed when I saw my all nickel supremacy came with rev 1.0 ek e.t.i. kit. (it's one of the "full nickel" csq massive blocks)
