Mindless work...

The inverter for the cathodes had an annoying blue light in it's clear box.



Out you come.




The drive "holders" made it not possible to install the ssd without having a piece of plastic blocking the sata ports.




The soldering station, quite a mess.





Taking out an unused molex connector.




Old cable vs new cable.

A couple more, quite stressful, moments...




Unscrewing stock cooler.




It's actually much smaller than I would think, considering how much space isn't being taken up by more fins/fans.




Might've put a tad too much on.




But it's all good now.





It's the processor's turn.




That is one beautifully shiny block.




Now I must wait for fittings...it takes so long to arrange and ship an order from Taiwan!

you used probably 80% too much thermal paste on both the GPU and CPU. i would remove and reseat them now before you fill the loop. Using too much thermal paste could result in bad temps.

looks good tho! thumb.gif

Sigh, yeah I agree. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I put the paste on the GPU.

This is a reallllly impressive build... I bought two 680's and I skipped custom looping to save money for all the components.. as you are probably wiling to attest, it's expensive to make a beautiful custom loop for cpu, 2 gpu's and a sweeet system.. i'm guessing you're total damage around $750?

Just for the water cooling? Yeah that sounds about right, maybe a bit high. I wanted to get two Gpu's but the cost really adds up. Maybe in the future:)

Loved the way you sleeved the psu. Starting with groups of cables in Sata sleeves and ending with individual cable sleeving. And that GPU backplate is the boss, spectacular choices all over this thread thumb.gif

Have you done any test for whining on the fans at all their rpm range? Just to be on the safe side after their disassembly.

Maybe its a little silly of me to trying to give an alternative route (you are clearly much much more experienced) but you can also run the tubing behind the top radiator if you want to avoid the hassle with the snake fitting.

Hmm, I do like the idea - I wouldn't have liked to have a tube running over to the rad in front of everything. I still haven't ordered the last half of the fittings (bitspower takes their time). Do you have any examples of this being done?

The amount of effort you put into the details such as the stand off screws is astonishing.
