Would like to see how all these rads/pumps/blocks/Aquaero work out. Wanna see 2C Air/Water deltas. thumb.gif

Not unless he's built the loop without the chipset block that's being made for him now.

Well good news and bad news nateman :/ the good news is that the block looks fantastic!... The bad news is that I'm 90% sure that at the way the inlet/outlet barb is angled, the barb with tubing will hit the CPU retention screw for the socket :/ it looks dangerously close ._.

OMG! I haven't been on since before Christmas. I just finished reading all the updates.

Chris this build is just amazing but I thought it would have been done by now!! Kinda glad it's not so there is more greatness to come!!!!! biggrin.gif

He could take a 90 degree rotatable compression and have the hose come in directly parallel and opposite the retention screw. It would add length to the loop, but would avoid contact issues.

Nateman, you are an artist. That block looks amazing, makes me want to buy an extreme11 just to watercool it. Do you plan on plexi cover for that block?

and Chris, I'm so glad you´re taking your time. It´s builds like these that got me into watercooling (next step for me is mess with acrylic tubing)

Yet another first poster that had to get on here to say what a heck of a build you got here. Even if you ain't an Aggie.

Whats your thoughts on when it will be done? Bearing in mind things like these are never quite finished...
post #3037 of 3982
So how about a quick update on what you've been busy with and when you think you'll get back to this system?

I am curious as well. I was out for a couple of months, but I am now back on OCN and catching up. biggrin.gif

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates. I let my brother (engmitch) get me involved with Ingress, and it has dominated my life for the last month. smile.gif Need to dial back and get this thing finished, I know. But for those of you who haven't heard of Ingress....check it out. Very fun....met lots of cool people playing.

I have made some progress that I haven't documented yet....so I'll try and do that soon. Need to finish before all my parts become out of date! Saw the GTX Titan reviews....nice cards...but I think I'll stick with the dual 690's for now...and wait for the 780/790's later this year.

I'll definitely finish this thing and get benchmarks posted. I appreciate all of you who have stuck with me this long. And also for all the votes in the CaseLabs contest!

If only you could run 5 by x16 PCIE... That darn RAID card you have puts a wrench into everything. Just imagine if you could run 4xTitan SLI... imagine the folding.

[Edit]
Maybe 3x would be okay...
