[COMPLETE] First Watercooling Project! Thoughts? - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
the cost came out to around 600 but im sure i could have searched a little better. remember that is for EVERYTHING. all blocks and rad and fans and res/pump, tubing, barbs, etc.

And yea the reason i cant just make the tubing super easy is because EK designated a set inlet and outlet for their universal blocks which means i cannot change the way the water flows. I will eventually try to make a straight piece from top right VGA to bottom left VGA! will look pretty nice

Although not sure how to drain my rig? hahah

One thing you might wanna consider something like this: http://www.swiftech.com/slicrossfirebridge.aspx

I used it in my recent build (http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-did-i-do.html). I thought it looked really clean and instead of the barbs and tubes swiftech suggested i used a 40mm extender and a revolving male to male adaptor. it makes it kinda hard to install and if you need 1 video card out you have to take both out but its very clean looking imo.

i really do like the idea of having a concealed system like that for the gfx cards but i also like the tubes. i figure since i have a strong pump and watertight fittings that i can just do whatever i want haha.

plus the tubes always spark a conversation when someone comes over to my house to visit

If you decide to change it, the easiest way I found was to put the cards in. Measure the length of tubing needed. Take them back out assemble with the connecting piece and put them in at the same time still connected.
Other than that one piece looks really good!

looks nice for first build. Maybe get some extensions to your fitting to connect the gpu water blocks...Would look a lot cleaner.

Mind if I ask you where did you get that "box" located in front of the PSU? It would be nice for me to hide my cables on something like this also, I have already seen on a lot of rigs here but never asked

It comes with the HAFX. You can easily make your own, its just a "L" shaped cover.
