Here's some pictures of the build.

Reservoir is pulled out for filling

Photo looking through the reservoir. The blur is my reflection holding the camera.

It works! All the parts are still working. I didn't break anything. All the wiring works. The WC is working and no leaks (so far, hope none appear).

Few issues I have.
Because I have to pull out the reservoir, I have to have hosing longer than I would like. I can't see a way around this.

I have to tidy up the wiring, it's just messy right now, too bulky. Just got excited and wanted to see if things were actually working, so that will come later.

Still have to attach the lighting. That will make a big difference.

Have to work on the front panel to get it to fit. Since powder coating, it no longer fits properly, so I'll have to do some careful work to get it right without damaging things.

But right now, just exhausted. Been up working on it a lot for the past few days, so going to take a break, hopefully get my SWTOR head start invite, and relax a bit before putting on the finishing touches. Finish it up by the 20th.

That's sweet man! But why the fans are that way, now no one can see them as they're facing in the case instead of outside frown.gif Or is there a mesh or something that would have blocked the view anyway?

Because I'm running a lower RPM setting, from my research, you get slightly better temps with a pull setup. No switching anyways, since I removed all the mounting on the opposite side of the radiator. The touches on the fan, the badges, are just an extra, nothing key. Just did it to try it out.


Any thoughts on these temperatures would be appreciated.

CPU - intel 2600K @ 4.8GHz - min 27C - max 58C
GPU - GTX 580 @ 850MHZ - min 25C - max 39C

Water temperatures go from 22C at the lowest (sitting idle for hours) to a high of 29C after running a bunch of benchmarks for an hour. I have temperature probes monitors the in and out temperatures from the radiator hooked up to an NZXT Sentry externally. Noiseblocker fans are at max of 1400RPM. Pump is also at max speed of 5.

Ya, the water temps got as high as 29C, but idle around 23C.

Looking through the red acrylic side window

I need a better photographer that can also do low light shots

Front in the dark, panel isn't properly fitted yet, just wanted to see the front with lighting

Pictures are horrible compared to seeing it in the dark. It glows red, looks very evil.

Will eventually get better pictures done.
