The PSU will keep its fan for now unless it becomes the noisiest part which I doubt.

2 Fans wont fit because of the northbridge heatsink and the RAM.

Added a 140.1 radiator cause it fits easy inside.

Valves are in place so I can short the loop to remove motherboard tray, replace CPU or GPU.

Fans are:

SW2 120 1500rpm 50CFM
SW2 140 1000rpm 60CFM
GT AP15 1850rpm 57CFM

Undecided on this, good idea or bad idea, need support:

It will definitely fit, a 140.2 rad, supported by only 4 screws, but possibly pointless. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Only going with 140.1 a 140.2 wont make considerable difference to load temps.

More planning and more ordering today.

Also ordered this through comGateway, can only hope it will work but a review said it wont, I will test it out on some old PCI card on my current comp before ordering the essence ST I think.


Trying to order Feser 1 Pure, but it wants to charge me VAT, also 2 week delivery.

Did the majority of ordering today should be able to start peicing it together in a couple days.

Still trying to find a place to get Lok-Seal fittings.

Props to aqua computer and PCCG for excellent customer service.

Newegg refunded my order because they dont ship to PO boxes (apart from residential ones in rural areas), there is no other place for me to get this adapter so looks like I will be settling on the STX, atleast I know it will work for sure.

no1 got back to my email about the lokseal fittings or about the coolant getting clearance.

Im such a noob, I thought I needed barbs as well as compression fittings, just going with compression fittings.


Also, spoke to startech support they can ship to me and the adapter should work with the Xonar ST. I then found out that their adapter uses the same bridge that is used on the D2X so possibly the STX aswell.

ASUS equips the Xonar D2X with a Pericom P17C9X110 PCI-to-PCIe bridge. Due to the additional PCI-to-PCIe bridge, the Xonar D2X requires external power from a four-pin power connector. Performance of the Xonar D2X and D2 are identical. Internal ASUS testing has not revealed any performance shortcomings of using a PCI-to-PCIe bridge chip, Lai said.

Chipset ID Pericom - PI7C9X110BNBE


Actually the essence uses PEX 8112 chipset so gonna try find an adapter with that.

Found one: http://www.soarland.com/Bracket_PCI_To_PCI-E_1x_Riser_Card_Extender-product-257.html
Cant believe thats the same tech used on the STX.

Just came across this thread and noticed you are using PCCG, if you're from Oz there is these 2 stores as well that have a pretty good range of wc gear. Bit late as you have already ordered but might come in handy in the future.
