Of course I will stay subbed. WC + 2500k = great bang for buck experiment. Also I am too lazy to figure out unsubbing on Huddler. redface.gif

Gonna be sweet for sure. I'd love to try out water cooling some time, mainly because of how quiet you can get it, also just because it makes your computer more awesomer. tongue.gif

One day, when I've left education and have a job and stuff, I'll watercool my PC, maybe before. Who knows. tongue.gif

Anyway, look forward to seeing pics and results, and seeing what watercooling is like for someone who hasn't used it before, like Glock said.

Thanks Ellis! But yeah, you should consider it sometime the rasa isnt much, that's all you need really Im just fussy about aesthetics so I spent much more on black fittings and tubing and fans etc.

Thanks for subbing guys, pics up when i start next week.

Hm, it's not actually. But still, there are other things I'd probably spend money on first, like a new monitor or graphics card. I'd probably get more out of that than watercooling right now.

2500K arrived this morning, just waiting on watercooling parts to arrive now!

I recently watercooled my computer and I too would recommend putting a drain in, it is a nightmare trying to drain the loop without one. Your original idea you had for draining will get really annoying and probably get water everywhere! I am going to fit a drain into my loop soon.

Subbed because I want a 2500k and because your from the UK

Thanks for subbing, stay tuned. It's all about to kick-off!

Just waiting for watercooling parts now.
