Wednesday before I pulled my loop apart I idled at 23, and under load using IBT I would hit about 66, now I idle at 28-29 and under load I will occasionally tap 76 briefly.

10 degrees difference is a lot but 76C while under load (IBT) not too bad either. It's still under "comfortable" range. (80C - 90C is for me "acceptable" or "safe" range). Custom WC is a bit complex to maintain. So, Corsair H100 is suitable for many people. Anyway, now you're down to only one 240mm rad, as opposed to 2 x 120mm + 1 x 240mm rads before. The result is what we expected.

My Raystorm EX240 WC kit arrived yesterday. This is like a "starter pack" for me. I expect to get the same performance as H100 since both 240mm rad. If I get just a couple of degrees improvement, that will be enough for now. Of course, I'll add another 240mm or 360mm rad in the future.

(+ a bottle of premixed distilled red coolant, no additives)

Hi All! I thought I'd use this thread to say a big hello. I'm in the C70 Owners Club! smile.gif I read this thread from start to finish before buying my green C70. I might be completely on my own but I like the clear side panel!

Here's my self built rig:

Intel i7 3770k@4.5
16GB C8 Corsair Dominator Platinum
Asus Sabertooth Z77
Corsair Vengeance C70 Case - Military Green
EVGA GTX 670 FTW
Corsair H100 - pump was noisy frown.gif but not since I did the diode fix smile.gif
Corsair GS180 SSD
Seagate 2TB 7200rpm HDD
Corsair HX850 PSU
Pioneer Blu-Ray burner
Old Logitech G5 Gaming Mouse
El Cheapo Cherry Keyboard
Dell 2209WA

Near Future buys...
Asus Essense STX sound card as I'm well into my music.
Dell monitor U2412M
Still deciding which gaming keyboard to upgrade to....possibly a QPAD MK-85 Pro or maybe a Corsiar
Quieter case fans maybe.

Looking forwards to posting some pics and contributing on the forum threads smile.gif

Love your build Raulmal Superb! - mine looks very plain compared to yours, but I'm not sure where you've put the Twizzlers in the case wink.gifsmile.gif

In the site's user control panel you can list your rig. I've done that but I'm not sure how to add it to my signature though.

I'm sorry for so many pictures, but I felt as though I had to show you everything!


The tidiedt I could get it, even with the AX Series, its still messy.

SP 120 Fans.

This is the LED strip I used.

About 1 week of dust already on.

I don't know how your guys case looks tidier, the side panel wouldnt fit on at first.

This the black acrylic, finally threw away the OEM rubbsih.


A close up of how the side panel was attached, I sanded down the plastic liners, then used rubber washers to make is a tight fit. as the OEM has little plastic raisers. 3mm plastic is perfect for the mod.




THe pictures really don't do the LED's justice, the pictures just did'nt come out properley, but in person, the LED's light evenly and are not to bright, they can also be dimmed and each colour comes out perfectly, where as on the picture, purple etc did not come out so well - you can chose from any colour you want.










More or less everything used! I would recommend the dominator platinum, but just bear in mind that if you have cathodes or LED's the lights under the ram is not going to be to noticeable.
