My budget build and first atempt at water cooling!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I came across some pretty good deal so thought I would update my old q6600 build.

New specs

Asus 22" lcd monitor
Asus P6X58D Premium
Core I7 920
8gb G-Skill ram
500gb WD hard drive
Arctic ram cool
Asus dvd burner
Asus 5770 gpu
ALL for $70.00!!!

then
unknown 240 Radiator
D-Tek Fuzion V1
Swiftech mcp655
2 Scythe Ultra Kaze high flow 120mm fans
All for $66.00

Bought a new NZXT Phantom white for $99.00

Misc barbs, new o-rings, tubing, anti-kink coils, leds, fans ect. for $120

that's $355.00 total

I reused my PC Power and cooling 750 psu and my BFG GTX285 gpu (I think its a little better than the 5770)

This was my first ever watercooled build and while I know that the cpu block is out dated and who knows about the radiator it was cheap!
I have so far overclocked the cpu to 3.9 no HT @ 1.20 vcore (1.184 with voltage drop) I have ran prime95 for 12 hours and its stable my max temp of the cores was 68c, idle is 40-45c.

Not great temps but I'm sure its a combo of the old block and unknown radiator. While gaming it hasn't gone above 56c.

Well that's it here are some pics!!

I said budget just because How little I spent on everything! When I almost did watercooling years ago my list was more than what I spent on this whole build

Thanks! I have a brother in law who him and his roommate were getting kick out and they were desperate for money. I told them I didn't "need" any of it so they took just what I had on me. And please don't feel bad for them. They are all hooked on drugs. There almost 30 and live like they're in high-school still.
