Gigabyte FM2 A85X UP4, with an A10 5800k Processor. Not sure about AI suite. UEFI Bios though.

Sorry for the bad picture quality, but I figure it's time I finally upload something. It's still a work in progress.

Wow, that is amazing for something that isn't finished. thumb.gif really love what you did, especially with the reservoirs (are those bitspower?) and all the mesh touches.

also nice detail of the primochill flow indicator, finally someone got them. Is that dyed coolant or just lighting?


Additionally, i fear that i might steal the concept of the reservoir if i'll go WC biggrin.gif (if you don't mind)

Not sure if it helps you guys diagnose, but here are pictures of the new case location.

It is sitting in the open air room, on the left hand side, and the AC is on the right hand side blowing toward the couch right by the PC Case. So I figured cooling should NOT be a problem. Tom I'm getting some molex to four pin for more fans, and getting a HYPER 212 EVO, if that won't solve it, I'm RMA'ing the CPU and Motherboard...I'm tired of this frown.gif

Ok guys. I sent out my pooched HX-850 today and what do I recieve a few hours later? An AX-850...

I talked to a rep via chat prior to this and he said it was all taken care of. Yet, here is an AX-850. Any who, I got on the phone with a Corsair CS rep and we worked everything. My only problem is that she said she was gonna give me a pre-paid shipping label to send back the AX-850. Does anyone know if they just email you this... or...? It was the only thing I forgot to ask. I can call them up later anyways but if anyone knows off by hand. Because I only received one email after the phone call and it was just another randomly generated shipping label that has "post stamp here".

It wouldn't be a big deal but it cost me 40$ to ship my HX back today.

I'd get charged full price for it because technically they're expecting my "ax-850" to arrive. But I dont have one! lol. So I want this thing gone ASAP. If they dont receive something from me, then its considered a full purchase. I ordered an Express RMA for my HX-850 too so that should be here this week or next Monday the latest.

Thanks! Yes they are bitspower. I ordered an additional 3 port end cap so I could attach the two reservoirs with bitspower crystal link. I don't mind at all if you steal the idea, just keep in mind that you're potentially adding more places for leaks.

I love my primochill vortex, it looks amazing. Unfortunately the impeller in mine made a rattling noise, but it was an easy problem to correct. I think the reason it rattled was because the impeller is laser cut and the diameter of the hole was bigger on one end. I just remembered that I need to contact primochill about that because it's my opinion the hole needs to be drilled. I'd still recommend it over any other visual flow meter though.

The coolant is just distilled water with Mayhems Clear/UV blue and DazMode protector (Which is probably the same as Feser ones corrosion blocker and biocide). One of the last things I need to do is the lighting, so I'm just waiting on the post man. The waterblocks, flow meter and reservoir are all going to have UV LED's.

with my luck i'll probably have many leaks so those additional ones won't change much tongue.gif

i am planning on maybe using the Primochill reservoirs because there is a sexy frosted version and now because of your amazing idea it has 4 ports on the top cap so if it works (i.e. enough space for 4 crystal links) it would be awesome. on the vortex, i have actually seen the Primochill overview video on those and according to them there are 2 rings that keep the impeller relatively in place on the metal bar that it is on and you just need to open the vortex and move them closer/further to fix your problem. (and overall, Primochill has made a few cool WC products lately. like the rad fan grills)

Nice use of the mayhems clear UV coolant thumb.gif


on a side note: since it is clear that you have put a lot of thought in your loop maybe you can advice here. do you think that it is plausible to make a loop with the "regular" stealthy black with red (accents) with a pinch of green somehow without ruining the looks/balance?
