NZXT FN-140RB Fans Arrived!:
450

450

At full speed these fans are SILENT. I put 3 of them into my test rig and turned them all the way up, as well as the rest of my fans all the way off with my fan controller... the 3 fans were quieter than my pump alone with the pump set on 50% speed.

450

The sleeving on the fans is also a nice touch, although I wish they would be sleeved all the way to the fan motor. Still a nice addition to what are (in my opinion) very visually appealing fans.

EK-FC6970 V2 Acetal+EN Arrived!:
700

Very high quality block and very appealing to the eye. Install went flawlessly (after some worrying about incompatibility) and my temps are down from 45C idle to 30C. I'll add pictures of the block installed soon.

Progress as of 3/13/12:
450

Installed the GPU block and took the 120mm rad from a Kuhler 920 I had laying around to use in my build. Won't look very good until the case and other parts come, but it's progress.

3/26:
Today I got the Switch 810 and all other parts I had been waiting on so I quickly assembled the whole thing.

450

I'm loving the large window on the side, it showcases the build while giving you the ability to hide any cables or other unsightful objects from view.

700

The front

450

The top with the cover removed

450

Fans spinning

700

These fans are almost silent, making the build very quiet

450

The side comes off!

700

I very much like the fan swivel mounts on the HDD bays...

700

View from below

450

While the swivel mounts are nice, I was unable to remove the mount for the bottom HDD bay to access the other 140mm fan mount, making it impossible to mount my 240 rad on the bottom. I'll likely drill these screws out.

3/27
I was able to drill out the screws holding the 3.5" bay mount in place. I moved the 240 rad to the bottom and the 120 to a fan swivel mount.

3/29

450

My only big gripe about the Switch 810 so far - cable passthroughs for the top fans when using 3x 140mm fans are basically nonexistent. I ended out having to pop the top of the case off just to run fan cables through the small hole provided.

450

I'm loving the nice blue hue given off by the fans when exposed to UV lighting.

700

The whole rig with the top portion removed.

450

I'm really liking how the bay reservoir looks without the front plate. Should look even better once my dyes arrive if all goes as planned...

3/29

450

VELCRO! One of my favorite modding tools. What I do with this will be a surprise... wink.gif

450

I broke a fan! doh.gif
I did order a new one, however.

4/5
All parts except the 5Noz have arrived! I promptly installed everything.

450

The coolant is distilled water with a mix of UV Clear/Blue and Deep Purple Mayhem dyes.

450

Coolant looks purple under plain light, and a nice pastel-looking blue under UV light.

450

450

I had a tough time fitting the EX420 up top... Some modding helped.

700

All put together!

450

The base is very smooth with no noticeable imperfections.

With UV lighting! I must give Mayhem credit, he really does make the best dyes!

Here's the picture from Dwood.


Quote:
No good pictures, yours is on the far left, its a monster. The one like I am using is the middle on and the one on the far right is a mini bench.

Test bench progress update:


Quote:
I will be fitting the mesh on the open sides tomorrow and then this baby is ready to paint.

The test bench from Dwood is ready for painting...



Good news!
My camera has been fixed so I can add pictures yet again. This next week is a pretty big week for my build, I have Cougar fans coming in by Thursday, Monsoon fittings here around Tuesday, and the test bench from Dwood will be shipped out Monday or Tuesday.

First off, some pictures of the new XSPC EX420 radiator.





Some "spare" fittings I'll be using once the test bench arrives.



Update

The Monsoon fittings all arrived today, thanks again to Performance PCs. Sidewinder ended out being out of the Koolance 24V pump controllers (even though their website says in-stock) so I ended up buying one from Performance PCs - the only place that actually has them in stock. Anyhow, below are pictures of the fittings. smile.gif



The fittings are packaged very well in a simple box with "Monsoon" on the front...



... and "Don't be a tool" on the back.



The inside packaging is a firm foam type holder for the fittings and the tightening tool.



The fittings themselves are very visually appealing in my opinion and have a soft textured feel to them.

Small Update

I got the Monsoon fittings installed on all of the components that will go into the test bench if it ever arrives...









The fittings have been great so far. No leaks and they look great imo.

The test bench from Dwood is shipping out tomorrow, and I should be getting the PMP-450S pump, fans, and the pump controller all tomorrow as well. thumb.gif

Here's a picture for the completed test bench. (Mine's on the far right)



The Cougar fans, PMP-450S pump, and 24V pump controller are all here. Tomorrow, the G1/4 top for the pump, as well as even more white Monsoon fittings, will be here. The test bench has been completed, but due to packaging issues is delayed a bit, update on that soon.

The Koolance 24V pump controller comes in very plain packaging...



The controller itself is very simple to set up and easy to operate. It has a single fan-type header, a molex connector, and a dial to adjust the voltage.



The PMP-450S pump is very high powered, especially compared to the MCP655-B I used previously. When set on 24V it's almost silent to my ears and pushes a lot of water.



The Cougar fans look great on the EX420 radiator with the white Monsoon fittings imo.



The TripT 'Roids test bench came in today and is looking great. It came wrapped in layer after layer of bubble wrap so it was protected well. While the motherboard block got here, it doesn't fit so I'll need to order another.



The bench is well painted and constructed and the cover looks great. This is fresh out of the box.



The cover is removed, showing the test bench inside.



Beginning to install hardware.



Everything's installed!



The "mesh" side of the test bench cover. This allows the dual 420mm radiators to get air in.



The PSU side. Just enough room for the power supply to exhaust hot air and room for the plug and switch.



The 5.25" bay side. I'm not using any 5.25" components, so I took the bay out.


My Thoughts:
The test bench is great quality, with very durable construction. The cover, when screwed into the sides of the test bench, is able to lift the weight of the bench, as well as the components inside which is a great feature. Installation was a breeze with no issues and all parts of the test bench can be removed or replaces as needed. The only issue I had was with routing the usb / monitor cables with the cover on as there's no opening for these parts.



The fan mount (left) and the 5.25" bays (right). There are a ton of mounting holes all over the test bench and everything's very custom.



The PMP-450S pump with XSPC pump reservoir.



GTX 680 with XSPC Razor water block.



One of the two 420mm radiators, with cougar fans.



The PSU area, as well as the 3.5" HDD mount and dual 420mm radiators on the sides.



My great ( rolleyes.gif ) cable management. This is where the 5.25" bays would go if installed.



The FrozenQ reservoir looks amazing on this test bench.



Here's a view of the PCI slot holder. It's adjustable.







Installation was a breeze, I simply removed the previous water block, removed any TIM left on the CPU, rotated the direct 2011 water block to the direction I wanted, and installed the screws. No leaks, very simple installation.







Temperature results were pretty great. A comparison between the 5Noz and Direct 2011 blocks is below. (The temperatures below are averages at full load over a 10 minute period)

5Noz:
CPU - 62C
Core 0 - 62C
Core 1 - 63C
Core 2 - 62C
Core 3 - 62C
Overall Average - 62.2C

Direct 2011:
CPU - 62C
Core 0 - 58C
Core 1 - 59C
Core 2 - 60C
Core 3 - 60C
Overall Average - 59.8C

Drop - 2.4C

These preliminary results are very promising, I plan on doing a lot more testing to see how much flowrates impact this block.



First, I switched out the GTX 680 for dual GTX 560TI 448 core GPUs, then I switched to a single 7950.



Next, I sleeved the Fractal-Design PSU and put it in a temporary location (deep in the bowels of the 'Roids bench).





Since my MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) motherboard died, I replaced it with an EVGA X79 FTW motherboard.

Nice looking forward to your build, I'm going to be getting this case soon. Hopefully next month (got week off work so need something to do lol)

Also any reason you went for the Rasa and not the Raystorm? The Raystorm is just literally all round an improvement over the Rasa. Better looks (well imo) better flow, much better flow, and better performance.

Also any reason you went for the Rasa and not the Raystorm? The Raystorm is just literally all round an improvement over the Rasa. Better looks (well imo) better flow, much better flow, and better performance.

The Rasa was just what I had started out on when I got into water cooling for the first time (pretty recently) and I haven't upgraded it yet. I plan on getting a 5Noz block soon which should be much better.

How does this look for a loop order? It would be res/pump -> 240 rad -> gpu -> cpu -> 360 rad -> res
