Damn that sucks :/ Why not just some all in one spray paint? That is what I used and it turned out with no problems.
I was wishing this too :/

Damnit kennah tongue.gif


Well I really wanted to work on Splash this weekend but since there is no case I just decided to take apart my little test bench type thing and mount everything and get it ready to go so that when the case arrives I can just put it all in biggrin.gif Even flushed out the rads and pump smile.gif


My Stash: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Bare GTX 670, Card is so small when it is just the PCB and so light :3 :







CPU block installed, GPU block installed, One tube installed biggrin.gif :




Basically what the rig will look like in Splash/For the person/WiSK who was asking about ModDIY cables (Still trying to find time for that review :/ ) :




My current set up, Kinda lags but whatever tongue.gif :


Looks great, if you wanna go hard, go get some blue nail polish that matches the rest of the build, a small paint brush and paint the DOMINATOR in blue.

EDIT: Ah newegg.ca has them for $19.99, I think I would get them but I am completely broke now spent it all on splash already >.<</div>

You may not be able to see it much, but it's the small details like that which get you into magazines and win you mod contests.

I can't wait for you to see if that gpu block will fit. I have the same one smile.gif
post #836 of 4608
So my back ordered 120 rad came today.

All i need now is a pump+res, cpu water block, fittings, tubbing and collant. (of any sleeving but that might come later).
My question is:

What CPU water block should i look at going for?
I remember reading a dissuasion in this thread about different metals in a water loop.
I currently have:
XSPC EX240 and EX120 Rads - Copper and Brass Core
Watercool HEATKILLER GTX 670 Ni-Bl block - nickel plated electrolytic copper, stainless steel, POM, black anodized trim
So what would i look for in a cpu waterblock? What metal?
I like the EK waterblocks.

Anyone got any suggestions on the pump/res? I saw a EK one i liked and looks like it would fit in nicely but can't remember to model number now.

Thanks again guys smile.gif

Most important: no aluminium. Apart from that it's okay to mix copper, brass and nickel. EK products come with a disclaimer that if using nickel, then avoid a silver kill coil, but this might be because EK are using a nickel alloy in their products rather than pure nickel. If you are worried, then use a premix with corrosion inhibitor.

For pump, I love the PWM ones like the MCP35X because you have fine control of the rpms, and PWM doesn't generate as much heat as a DC with a resistor.

This is true but there are no contests or magazines that this case will be going into tongue.gif That said I am looking into it more and still thinking about it. I do have the white rads, and sleeving so I am not sure if I will end up doing it. Great idea still and forgot to give you a rep for it last time so here it is now biggrin.gif

There is definitely a twist in the cables but they flatten out quite well anyways. The 8 pin cable is at a long enough length too that it kind of goes down the mobo to the 24pin and then follows that into the PSU which I am really really happy about (just makes it look like less cables)

It should fit but it will be very very tight. If it doesnt I have no idea what I am going to do lol

Sadly I cannot comment on this as I dont really know tons but I would assume that what WiSK said is correct (which it is) thus meaning almost any block will work. As you can see I am just running all EK Blocks for the looks and minimizing the combination of things. Perhaps pick up a Watercool CPU block so that everything matches?
