Smith's Watercooled Phantom

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hmm where to begin; "Vader" started life as a h60, 2500k, and a 560ti hawk combo.

450
600

But i wasn't really happy with the performance even when it was at 1ghz core. It was hot(would get to around 85C quite fast. It was noisy... and i wanted more.

So in true OCN fashion while nothing was broken; out went the red ram, H60 and 560ti.

In with the EVGA 580 3gb, blue ripjaws (1.35v) and after browsing the water cooling pictures thread for hours on end finally took the jump to a true loop.

CPU Waterblock - EK LTX
GPU Waterblock - EK FC-580
Res/Pump - EK DDC X Res-100 + MCP 355
Radiators - Swiftech MC320,MC240

433

Meyhems Deep Blue Dye, Biocide, and Corrosion inhibitor arrive today by UPS

Thanks for Looking

Thank you =) i really need to get an 8 pin extension for the gpu so i can finish the black and blue theme. I figured out the hard way that 6pin extenders with the 8 pin add-on dont work haha.
