Corsair 600t overhaul (Watercooling build) (First post :D)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So this is my first post regarding my build on overclock.net, I'm an avid reader of the articles but never bothered to register.

My build lies in the Mid-high end range and is undergoing a watercooling overhaul, I plan on having a top mounted rad and a front mounted rad for my loop which is going to cool both graphics cards and my CPU.
700

Case interior as of now. Yes, I know a corsair closed loop cooler, how lame, but soon it will be replaced with a much more eye appealing cooler tongue.gif

The system specs are:
HDD: Hitatchi 500gb 3.0 speed, nothing special here.
RAM: G-skill Ripjaws, 8gb of it, will be replaced by corsair Vengeance RAM soon.
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Gen3
CPU: i7 2600k (OC at around 4.3)
GPU: GTX 560 TI SLI (EVGA model, 1.5gb VRAM each overclocked at 950 MHZ)
PSU: Corsair HX850 Professional series
And that's all that matters, the cooler is a Corsair H80 and the hideously ugly fans are Cougar Vortexes.

Watercooling parts:

GPU Blocks: EK GTX 560 V2 waterblock
CPU Block: Koolance 370SI
Pump: Danger den CPX Pro
Radiator: Haven't decided sadly
Resivoir: EK multioption series 250 advanced

The only parts that I have for this build are the GPU blocks and pump (as well as tubing). I have other parts but they are dedicated to my AMD build which is what I use as a primary gaming PC as of now.

I will post updates as soon as I receive my other parts but as of now I have yet to do anything besides take out the H80 and the 200mm fans that the case included. The build is going to have a blue and white color scheme and I am going to grab some heatshrinks eventually but right now I have other priorities, I am using Primochill UV Blue tubing and have yet to purchase some cold cathodes for this build and will eventually make my way around to get some. I expect the build to be done early May and I am really excited to join this community of fellow builders.

Thanks for your intrest!

I will probably use my dremel to modify it to accomodate a 120mm triple radiator in time, but as of now the only modifications in a recent time frame would be a full acrylic side window. I just don't have the time to modify it like that as of now but will defiantly post here when I get that triple radiator in . Thanks for reading!
