Water cooling worklog, work in progress - Page 3

post #21 of 29
um about the 16x 16x ..... might want to Google nf200....with enough nf200 chips....you could do 16x ....10x times over with just more and more latency. Splits up lanes.... hence the dual 16x on 1155, if you dont have problems with money step up to 2011

- Kokin, thanks for the tips! I will try this out now.

- Mannyfc, I have built 2x 1366 builds, with both 920 and 960 CPU'S, both of them lived for around half a year with good OC, I like the possibility to push out A LOT of 1's and 0's, but regarding the tasks Im going to do, I wont be needing 2011. It is possible to do crossfire with 2x16 lanes. The only thing i miss is the memory architecture..

450

The fluids i used is one liter of EK water, half a liter of blue coolant, and half a liter of green coolant.

I have some questions, I think I will be able to have the case and water cooling setup done by the time the new CPU from Intel is released.

Im going to order 6x 90 fittings, 1x plastic 90 fitting, 10 feet with some sort of tubing.

What tubing and fluid do you guys recommend? Im going for red UV tubing, does the color get more intense if i add red UV fluid? Since some of the tubing and the reservoirs are on the outside, I want them to stand out. Going for awesome build! biggrin.gif

Also, how is this sleeving kit? Any good? Never done any sleeving before, but i think it will add a good finish.

If it were me I go 1/2 inch barbs with 7 1/16 inch tubing and remove the need to use clamps (ugly). Since the fitting is really really tight you won't need to worry about leaks. The more red you add the more intense it gets if you use clear tubing. I saw a build where a bit of black and yellow were added to the red to make it deeper and it looked awesome. I go with a bay res/pump combo like a DC750 pump res combo.

Note - the bay / res combo takes 2 X 5 1/4 drive bays but makes the case look cleaner especially if you have clear side panel. thumb.gif

K62-RIG - What kind of Dye is that? would you recommend a brand of nice 1/2 tubing and dye? I would love a combo like the one you mentioned with the color. Will it look even more "wow" if i add red dye in a red UV tubing? Or do i want dark water with red tubing? With the res/pump, I will use the once i have, will look neat when i get the 90degree fittings. Before i gave the reservoirs some extra length it looked like this: 450

Currently I dont have clear side panel. But Im thinking of it. A friend of mine works with "water cutter?" is that right? and he will be able to form my side panel for free. Also the clamps are ugly, but for my test they did what they were intended for. Also I had them spare.

Update again! I have been working for around 4 hours on this case. I have mounted the radiator on the side of the case, and i have removed all the paint that was there previously. I have also cut the screws so the lenght is perfect and they dont touch the radiator finns. Some pictures of the work.

Any tips on how i get the paint on the case to look good? I have put down almost 10 thin layers on primer, and gone over it every 5 time with water sanding paper.. 400, i have 600, 1200 and 2000 for when the black paint goes on!

Its not cool having to wait for the new Sandy bridge CPU's!

Im also considering taping the whole inside of my case in a carbon look, and also separating the PSU and the 5,25" tray from the rest of the case with carbon fiber plate. Im thinking of a thin wood plate, and cover it in this cheap carbon sheet. Any cool ideas on what i could do? The front of the case looks awful, and i want it to shine! biggrin.gif
