CPU is happy at 4.7 during 24/7 work anyway currently so not going to mess with it until I get a bigger case more suitable for water cooling.

You can see how tight they are in this shot.


Hey if you are lookin to hide the uv cathodes a bit more, you can drill out the handle support rivets (4 each) and stick the cathode right up into the corner of the case. You can use small machine screws with nuts to put the handle support back in place. The cathodes fit so nicely there.

I'm actually looking into ditching the cathodes all together for some high powered UV led's mounted around the case. 4-6 of them should get the job done for me.

The reservoirs would need rehoming and there's some mild Dremeling to be done, which is nice. The good thing about having two reservoirs, apart from the symmetry. is your loop gets to dump more heat out of the loop than a single res.

I've been looking at chillers for extra cooling, but have put myself off for now. Too involving and I'd rather not have to check the weather forecast everytime I want to use my rig. I think the next upgrade will be a standalone Mo-ra 420 when I get a second 290x. My magicool 720 rad is ok for now, but once the spring arrives along with the 290x. I don't think the one rad will do the job.

Now that you mention that I sort of do remember that build. He had a 3x120 mounted to the front of the case. If I make any more mods, i'lll probably make a big jump and add on an external fixture or something and connect it out the back of the case with a couple quick disconnects in place of the current 120mm and just use the 120 as an exhaust fan w/o a rad.

I have to admit that he corsair 540 has my attention with the ability to hold about double the radiator space and has a nice fat plexi window that would work great given my computer desk's layout.

I have 2x360's, a 240, & a 120. These are some old pics i just randomly grabbed for any1 who isn't familiar with my build

Yeah baby, You said your hard drives were pron free lol. Effective cooling, in a small space. Alternatively you could try this, I found it particularly effective at running a stable 4.8GHz overclock on my 4770k.

That's a half pound of frozen overclocking potential right there.


Check those temps, the only thing getting hot is those burgers after a hard evenings overclocking

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA That's gotta be the most creative "Chiller" I've ever seen :thumb:

 

I still got a long way to go before thinking about OC'ing and temps. I got all my rad-space planned and carved out. Now it's the aesthetics phase, which is why it's gonna be in that test-bench setup its in until i get all my acrylic mods planned and implemented

Dunno how long that'll take since i'm learning every single last thing as i go along. The only mod i've ever really done with acrylic is the top panel i made a few months ago, so i'm expecting a fairly steep learning curve :D

 

Dunno why i keep biting off more than i can chew with this build. I keep getting lucky with my mods though, so i end up obsessing about what else i can do to make mine unique :p

fake chiller but real temps. it was cold at the weekend, it still is. so I left the door and window open and what electricity I was saving in heating I was using in overclocking. Managed to beat all my previous benchmarks. The 4770k liked the cold. 4.8GHz went well but needed 1.5v, too much for everyday use. As an everyday solution, it probably won't work much outside the Arctic circle.

I've too many ideas for mine, just not the time and money to get them done. I think I'm going with the orange/black half life theme but the more I learn and the more I see and read. The more things I want to try out. like making a table top out of a mo-ra 420 rad for the pc to sit on. Well bedtime for me, have fun with the modding.

Still a really creative use for hamburger meat, especially since it works :thumb:

 

Pretty much every idea or inspiration i've had for my build has come from various build logs. Even buying this case was because of Brian White's Green Machine build log. I always liked the idea of MoRa + QDC's for the XB. When you need to take it with you just disconnect the QDC's and use the internal rads, then when you get home and feel like pushing your system just connect em back up. I really like how Gambi executed it. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!!

 

I'm a complete n00b with OC'ing. I've spent all day today messing around in my RIVE BE's BIOS. When i post pics later of how my rig looks right now, there will definitely be no CPUID screenshots included cuz it's still pretty pathetic :D

I've used the same push pins from the mesh. Just cut a 10"x9.25" acrylic. Here's some pics [IMG]
