Awesome work on the side window Jesse! Got some new numbers in on the cooling system. Keeping in mind this is while gaming, GPU #1 19 degrees C, GPU #2 20 degress C and the hottest core on the Cpu was sitting at 32 degrees C. Pretty happy with the numbers! Looking toi get started on OC'ing soon. Things have been crazy with a move and hopefully a new job. Will be back to the boards more frequently soon I hope

I have learned a lot during my first watercooling build, and i will say that I'm starting to become a fan of the bitspower fittings compared to monsoon angled fittings.

Those are some really nice numbers, I was wondering where have you been. Glad to hear from you.

Thanks for the words of appreciation guys.

I live the monsoons. I will say putting some monsoons on the modular angled fittings (the ones that don't have an attached compression) would've looked better. The monsoons are the best fittings I've used though.

Its too late for couldve wouldve for me, and the fact that the monsoon angled fittings were not out when I was still planning, didnt help the pics I saw looked good and I was sold. I personally I like the fittings and for the simple reason that its my build and for me its freaking surprising that I was able to get this much done. I remember my first post on OCN asking the typical should I get a 360 or a 420 rad, and I was overwhelmed and scared when I started. I would read a lot about different parts and how I should do it. I made a lot of mistakes I would agree, but I feel I have achieved way more than what I thought I would achieve. And that is THANKS TO ALL members in the 810 club.

From wanting a simple raystorm kit to coming up with something that I did I'm still surprised at myself.

With all that EK bling, you could submit your config to http://www.cooledpc.com/

I went on a few days vacation. After returning home, I went to fill up my res and actually, you're right! It's purple! The color changed from red to purple. It must be from the copper from the radiators. I'll probably go to flush it out tonight.

hey guys, how does this look so far for a custom set up for my cpu? I know I don't need a 360 for just the cpu but I want some overhead for when I add a GPU to the loop. The only thing I'm unsure about is draining everything out.. with a cpu only loop there isn't really a low point.

Get a couple more XSPC compression fittings, there is always great to have some extras and the xspc fittings are one of the cheapest.

For a drain get a ball valve and add it the lowest point in your loop, that way gravity can drain most of your loop for you. On my build I have my drain right before the pump intake and use a koolance ball valve (get the one that will fit your build and look good)

Also If not already, draw out your loop on paper, and try to factor in all different ways you might wanna route the loop, and order things based off that. This way if you dont like how things look you can change and not wait for more parts to come.

That is a really awesome set up mate. Good luck and make sure you post pics once you have the build up and running on air.
