Got a leek in my watercooler- wat do?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So yeah, i never done water cooling before, and so i decided to go full retard and cool this rig with water. Apart of the obvious parts, the processor is I7 3770k and 16 gigs of g-skill trident... the usual stuff.

So, i got it all together, Ek blocks, 140mm3x by by 140mm by 45mm rad on top and 140mm by 140mm by 45mm rad in bottom and then some piping, res and pump and vola (wrong bridge for second card, will wait till get right one doh.gif ), done. But then, one morning, i realized that i got a leek in my pc eek.gif , and i got no clue what to do.

So... I am asking, if anyone here can, please, get me some good recipes for kooked or stewed leek. biggrin.gif

Le update on my adventures in water world.




Back when i was planning the loop, i had a certain concept in my mind. The whole idea of this loop stemmed from one of the vocaloids songs.



The deep sea girl.

So, now that i finally got my 3x slot SLI EK bridge, i decided to install my second GPU and while i was at it, do some mad sciense.... (imagine me going "its alive, ALIVE!").
Since the aquatic miku theme got the leek and the teal glowing tubing, only thing missing was the deep sea miku. The vision i original had was something along the lines of this.


Now, since only thing that even resembles bottle in loop is ....


At this point many of you are probably starting to have an ... idea of what i am after.

After extensive internet search, i've finally came to the most suitable candidate for my artistic vision.



Figmas 100th figurine, Miku append version, i could not get better suited figurine even if i designed it myself. However, there was a problem, the figmas used acrylic based paints. The problems was solved by getting a Chinese knock off. And while quality wise it was not as good as Japanese mad, the pain they use is cheaper - and thus more toxic and less soluble to the coolant i was using. After 2 weeks of soaking few sample parts in the coolant, the paint was remarkably untouched, plastic unchanged. We had a go. (The irony of getting Chinese knock off deliberately, ill make a point to buy the original one because it looks cool on a shelf)

Open lid, aaand in she goes (snug fit, like she was made for this).



Ain't she beautiful?



Now, admittedly, the end result ended up looking something more like this.



A little deviation from the original, but oddly enough, i am a OK with that biggrin.gif.


ITS ALIVE, ALIVE!

(What have science done!)

As a side note, the SLI 680gtx with water are wondebra!

Managed to squeeze 1298mhz out of the cores and 6700mHz out of memory, stable. Something that was impossible to do properly under air, as the cards started to down clock at 70c.
Now ill have to push it, hard, to get them even near 50c. And that happens only when the water temperature goes 10c over the ambient room (20c) temps. That seems to be the point where my rads can keep the water when the computer is giving all it got (around 600 watts worth of heat). And all this without managing to sound like jet plane taking off, like it did with my old coolers on cards.
Ironically, the heat form CPU, is not so well improved over air, idle temps are about the same, and only when it is 100% stressing the temps are about 10c lower than with air. However, this is something that can be fixed with delidding devil-smiley-019.gif the ivy.
