Thanks dude. But you know what's funny? I actually forgot to include a pretty big update. And your words reminded me big time of that. I had gone from that UP7 motherboard with the 3770k, to the X79 Rampage IV Black Edition with a 4930k without really stating I did lol.


I don't have many photos of when I swapped over, but I'll post what I have and make that an impromptu update tonight.

11/1/15 - Final Update

SO. I think it's time to officially call this beast complete, though technically I called it complete months ago yet never said anything about it nor posted anything about it.

I had sold my Gigabyte UP7 along with my delidded 3770k on this site, and moved on to a processor that'd handle 3 gpus more effectively.

I went and snagged the 4930k and an Asus Rampage IV Black Edition. I had kept the Samsung ram because well, it's the miracle ram. That and I already put some work into watercooling those bad boys.

I also decided to throw in another D5 and hardline the rig with Monsoon's acrylic tubing. I don't have a good picture of the location of the second D5. But I had placed it directly behind the Monsta 480 radiator, as that was literally the only real free space I had left in the case. Worked out perfectly too. Currently my pumps are both at 65% of their full speed with the flow maintaining the 200 LPH mark.

When I was reassembling the rig, I was still maintaining the goal of keeping radiator space as high as possible. That would include the classic rear radiator placement I had before. Though the one thing I had not calculated was the fact that now I had two ram locations. Well... the rear radiator fan was now in the way of the ram block ports. I was very lucky to be able to wing shaving down a corner from the fan shroud, as well as having a 90 degree Bitspower fitting to put in place...

Before:

After:

I only have a few pictures left, as I had discovered that acrylic tube bending can really be a huge pain in the butt at times!

And then of course, the completed (VERY LONG) project:

I wonder who from the years ago that I started this is still subscribed hahaha

But that also should make a statement for the Noiseblocker E-Loops I have. They were near 25 bucks a pop. Worth every penny.



(secretly hopes for a MOTM nomination...)

Yeah. The e loops are nice. Not used one but I am sure they feel very solid.
Still, I will have to see if they are better then my Gentle Typhoons. A shame they don't make them no more.

You know you can change the fan in the psu, right?

Out of curiosity, what were the costs of the cooling parts only (roughly)?
Probably a lot as I have spend around € 600-650 for my cpu and single gpu loop.

The wondrous Typhoons. Those fans are one of the best but honestly too many people have been on their high horse about them.

And yes, I most certainly know I can change my psu fan. Then again, I would be voiding EVGA's awesome 10 year warranty for what? A slightly louder fan than I want? Not a chance.


And I'll have to add up all the parts and their cost to really see how much the total was. Off the top of my head...

Gpu block : 140 a pop (x4)
Gpu back plate : 30 a pop (x4)
Black Edition block : 125
Cpu block : 60
Ram block : 50 a pop (x2)

I forgot the prices of the radiators but that's already close to a grand. I'll look at my invoices and see how much the total was.

What I expected. A lot. biggrin.gif
You say close to a grand on raddage. How many do you actually use? headscratch.gif
Is that an 560 in the bottom?

And I totally agree with you. EVGA has (together with Corsair) the best warranty service IMO. At least where I live, I've heard mixed things about Corsair over the globe

I don't say the typhoons are THE best. But I just like them very much. They feel decent, different then Noctua's. And the bearing is just nice giving it a Gentle (tongue.gif) noise. Not the quietest around but one of the most pleasant noises for sure.
