I spray painted the waterblock thumbscrews gold too.

My favorite theme, it looks pretty beast so far.. thumb.gif

BTW, IMO it will look even better if you use EK HF supreme acrylic version, transparent tubing, and yellow coolant..

awesome build, love the colors and the though put in it!


Few questions if you don't mind as I'm new to water cooling.

Been tossing around the idea of going water cool, just to do something. I know I really don't need it but be a cool experince


How do you have your tubing routed? radiator---pump--cpu--radiator then radiator ---pump--gpu---radiator? I image you have a t valve of some sort for drainage (read that in your thread)

also how do you light up the fluid/tubing, through LEDS and some form of dye? ?


where did you get your cooling supplies and LEDs?

Thanks bud.

Was going to post my overclock stats later on but i can tell you with water i was able to push my cpu overclock to almost 40% over stock and the gpus by 28% over stock. So there is a performance benefit on top of just looking cool. It is cheap though and if you want to do it right (good flow, no leaks etc), you need to get quality parts.

My flow was like this:

CPU loop: pump outlet => T joint with drain => 240 rad => cpu => res => pump inlet
GPU loop: pump outlet => 360 rad => gpu blocks => T joint with drain tube => res => pump inlet

The tubing is solid white, though you can get transparent ones and put dye in the water. I avoided that since I heard the dye stains the tubing eventually and wanted to keep a clean look for this build. I went with white leds to enhance the look as well.

I got the majority of my cooling supplies and leds from FrozenCPU.com, sleeving from FTWPC.com, and additional stuff from Jab-tech.com and PerformancePcs.com.

Lemme know if you go ahead with the WC build, ill subscribe. Good luck!

UPDATE: 6/14/2013

Some things have changed since I first built it - added fillports, sold my revodrive (replaced with samsung 840 pro) to make room for a 3rd gpu.

Haven't installed the 3rd GPU yet- will put up pictures when done.

Concerned about the flow in my loops - looking to reduce my tubing and open to thoughts - diagrams are in the PDF.

So scratched the dual loop and went to a single loop to remove the tube clutter and keep the front panel of the PC professional looking.

New Motherboard: Asus z87-WS

GPUs now GTX580 x3 in Sli

CPU: i7 4770K

Soundcard: Asus Essence STX

Swapped out PSU wires for professionally sleeved black ones from Corsair. Choose black so the focus would be on the components and white tubing.

So that's about it for upgrading this thing. Gonna ride it out until it starts to break down. Hope everyone has enjoyed my pictures and has been inspired to build there own water cooled machine!
