It'll *probably* use supplied thermal pads on the mem then. It'll say when you get it.

Tubing size is 7/16 ID black primoflex LRT using matte black bitspower 1/2" barbs, I was a little paranoid about leaks and this is a good way to make a good seal.1/2" tubing and1/2" compression fitting are normally used but 1/2" tubing can be hard to get tight bend radiuses with.
Yep that's the one I'm using, spans 3 slots easily. I originally bought the Aquacomputer twinconnect but it doesnt quite reach (I need to use slots 1 & 3 for 16x 16x PCI-E.
I'm not looking for anything in particular, just want to see the whole setup with better light and things like fittings you used.
I've made a new shopping list, still using the same website but I'm not fixed to this one yet, here is the shopping cart
Don't know what the best between Alphacool and Primochill tubing.

About the EK block, check their website, there is pdf that are well made. tongue.gif

I cant comment on the Alphacool but the primochill tubing is really nice IMO. No markings, good bend radius, low permeability, good UV blocking.

I'll try take a pic over the weekend, kinda embarrassing showing pics of it incomplete, with unsleeved wiring etc tongue.gif I listed the fittings used above for your reference.

Don't be embarrassed to show an incomplete setup, it's a good thing to show the steps. wink.gif
As for the fittings, I was talking about the angles, I guess a 45 for the top card, a 90 for the lower card and everything else straight should be good if I use a 5.25 bay for res plus pump and a 240 rad in the front of the case.

BTW I saw you asked at what voltage GenoOCAU was running his lightning @ 1350mhz, I'm running mine at this frequency (well it's written 1346 but...) at +75mV right now, the temp don't get higher than before (because the fan run faster I guess, but the noise is not higher lol). I didn't tried to lower it yet.

I guess you're right, I'll do what I can photowise over the wkend. I run all straight fittings and one 90* on the bottom card. Its a normal 90* not a rotary. Its pretty much impossible to position 45's and 90's where you want them unless they are rotaries, but I'm worried a rotary will leak and I actually like the smooth curves of the tubing making all the bends. There's a bit of a trend currently with making all the bends with fittings and just running straight lengths of tubing between, but I just think every connection and fitting is another possible leak, but the aesthetics bother me a little too. I keep it as simple as I can.

Remind me of my first watercooling kit by Asetek, back to the P4 Prescott time, I had nightmare with those quick release plugs. After that I said to myself, no more watercooling but I tend to change my mind when I see the temp you can get and the insane look biggrin.gif
I started back with Corsair H100i, it has is issue but it works fine by now.

About a year ago :

today :


Few things changed (but not the cable mess in the back), and maybe tomorrow the lightnings under water rolleyes.gif

They are only extensions, I wanted everything sleeved but that platimax isn't fully modular sadsmiley.gif (and my bro came to me and said, "you see you should have took a corsair" >_>)
the back is a mess :

Lol I know that feel. I could buy the sleeved cable set for my ax 850, but I would have to redo all the cable management and that makes me a sad panda. And do I see a logitech mouse or keyboard there?

Yeah Logitech G600 and G9x (not really using that one anymore) and Illuminated keyboard. Love that keyboard design, big drawback is the fact you can't use 3 key at the same time, but I got used to, 500h+ in BF3 might have helped me learning to switch from shift to space quickly lmao.
It's in my sig rig spec wink.gif

edit : oh, and damn Logitech with the stupid gaming software, total crap!
