UPDATES, UPDATES, UPDATES!!

1. Well, two GTX-480's have been purchased from the OCN Marketplace (keep it in the community!)

2. The Corsair H-100 is out the door (trade+cash for one of the GTX's). While a contained unit is great for cooling and all, it defeats the purpose of doing a full system water cool build. So, she's gone and I'm looking to the Danger Den DD-M6 Nickel block for my CPU cooling needs.

3. Compression fittings have been identified for the 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD setup and I'll be getting those shortly. Watercooling setup is as follows:
Processor Cooler - DD-M6 Nickel CPU Block - AM2, AM3
CPU Compression Fittings - Enzotech Compression Fitting G 1/4 Thread - Matte Black

Pump - DD12V-D5 Pump Variable Speed by Laing

Resevoir - Alphacool HF 38 Cape Cyclone 250 - Version 2
Res Compression Fittings - Bitspower BP-MBCPF-HFCC5 G3/8" Compression Fitting - Matte Black

Radiator - Phobya Xtreme 400mm
Radiator Fans - BitFenix Spectre LED 200mm Fan - Red (BFF-BLF-20020R-RP)
Rad Compression Fittings - Enzotech 90 Degree Rotary Compression Fitting G 1/4 Thread - Matte Black

Radiator - Phobya XTREME QUAD 480 - Black
Rad Compression Fittings - Enzotech Compression Fitting G 1/4 Thread - Matte Black

Tubing - PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing -1/2in. ID X 3/4in. OD

Graphics Cooler - 3x DD-GTX480 Satin Copper Version
Compression Fittings - SLI - x4 Bitspower BP-MBWP-C48 G1/4" Matte Black Multi-Link Adapter - Mini- Set of 2
Compression Fittings - SLI Links - x4 Bitspower BP-CLTAC-S2 Crystal Link Tube Set For 2-Slots
Compression Fittings - Stop Fittings - x2 Bitspower G1/4" Low-Profile Stop Fitting with O-ring - Black Matte Finish
Compression Fittings - GPU In/Out flow - Enzotech 90 Degree Rotary Compression Fitting G 1/4 Thread - Matte Black


4. The single DD-GTX-480 copper block I purchased from eBay came in over the weekend and is a hefty piece of art smile.gif I need to get some thermal pads as it didn't come with them. Otherwise it is like it was brand new!

More to come soon!

Well, change of heart I guess. As much as I like compression fittings it's hard to justify spending ~$200 for a bunch of fittings when barbs and clamps have been used and seem to have the same effects.
Modified list is as follows:

CPU Fittings - x2 DD FB (Fat Boy) G 1/4 Fittings

Pump - DD12V-D5 Pump Fixed Speed by Laing
PumpTop - EK-D5 X-TOP CSQ - Acetal

Resevoir - Alphacool HF 38 Cape Cyclone 250 - Version 2
Res Fittings - x2 Thermochill (Fat Boy) G 3/8 Thread

Radiator - Phobya Xtreme 400mm
Radiator Fans - BitFenix Spectre LED 200mm Fan - Red (BFF-BLF-20020R-RP)
Rad Fittings - x2 DD 90 Degree Rotary Fitting

Radiator - Phobya XTREME QUAD 480 - Black
Rad Fittings - FB (Fat Boy) G 1/4 Fittings

Tubing - PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing -1/2in. ID X 3/4in. OD

Well, GTX-480's should arrive this week. I've got the pump and SLI's coming in probably next week. Next purchase is either the RAD's or the GPU/CPU blocks.

Well, Project Halcyon is going bigger! I've decided to up the cooling potential and am going to focus on mounting a 1080 Radiator from Phobya on the side. biggrin.gif

There's a lot of heat that needs to be removed from the system and the external rad with high quality fans will be essential to ensuring proper cooling. I used martin's lab configurator and the theoretical load temperature over ambient temperature is quite impressive smile.gif

So, this build is becoming more and more of a machine supported with Phobya parts lol.

Forget the 1080, as I've said to shadowhero18, "You either go big, or you go home"......
So, what's going into the side?
450
That's right, the Phobya 1260 (4.220) RAD.

With the assistance and design of dwood, we are working on a really cool (literally) concept that is taking halcyon to the new level. Not gonna roll out the design but it's definitely unique and gonna be nice.

In other Project Halcyon news:
1. Bitspower D5 / MCP655 Extreme Pump Mod Top V2 has been ordered
2. Laing DD12V-D5 pump received
3. x4 Danger Den SLI Fittings (for parallel flow) have been ordered and are on their way, and
4. An order for Danger Den is about to go in for more WC parts smile.gif

Much more going on, just dont wanna spoil the suprise smile.gif
Stay tuned!

Newest updates? Here it goes....

What's headed my way to be included in a mod coming up?

Yep, a Phobya 1260 SuperNova Radiator. biggrin.gif


And what is it going into? Well, I've contacted and have been working on a design with our very own OCN Artisan dwood to create a unique enclosure to be a concept off of this:


Happy weekend everyone smile.gif

SPONSORED!



So what's the word with [Project Halcyon] lately? Well, it's events in the background that I have been working on for quite a while...

I received word today, that [Project Halcyon] is being sponsored by Cooler Master!!!!!!!!!!!!!thumb.gif

Additionally, I have received email confirmation from a number of other companies who are generously supporting Project Halcyon including:
  • Danger Den
  • Performance-pcs, and
  • Aquatuning

Additionally, I have been reaching out (as previously indicated) to our very own dwood to assist in the creation of a side-mounted radiator stand to be included on the HAF-X in order to support our local artisans as well.

I have already reached out to Chipp and am in process of moving the Project Halcyon build log over to the Sponsored Build section as soon as I PayPal OCN the money.

Come back often, as Project Halcyon is in high gear to complete the build and watercooling design.

Thank you to the projects sponsors and supporters for making this build a reality!

Cheers,
halcyon-twin
