I think that build looks really nice. But, just my opinion, I think the coolant needs some color to make it really POP.

Have been waiting for these to return to stock. Seen a lot of comments complaining about residue and fading when dealing with additives. Will get a light bar or two.

Hello m8ts,

just wanna introduce me shortly. My name is Michael, im from Germany. I recently bought me my new 540 air and i like it very much. Its good to see here many impressions from other 540 owners wink.gif

After installing my hardware i decided that my H100i is not enough for me and i wanted to buy me a water cooling system.

Not for extrem overclocking, it should be more for optic wink.gif

Hardware:

Intel i5 3570k
Asus Sabertooth Z77
8GB Avexir Core Series White LED DDR3-1600
GeForce GTX Titan Gigabyte
BeQuiet 530W CM

The cooling system is not installed until now as i am still waiting for my GPU Backplate which is with an airbrusher atm.

What i´ve bought:

Aquacomputer Aquastream XT pump
Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos HF CPU cooler
Watercool Heatkiller X-3 for the Titan
Aquacomputer Aqualis XT 150ml
Aquacomputer flow meter
Phobya Tempsensor
Aquacomputer Aquaero 5LT USB
Magicool Slim Radiator 360
Magicool Slim Radiator 280
4x Corsair AF120-LED White
BitFenix Sleeved Cables in White/Black
Masterkleer 16/10mm UV white hose


What is planned with the case mods?

Not much until now. Want to remove the Hotswaps in the front and clean the bottom plate. I will install the 3,5" HDD in one of the 5,25" bays.

As soon as there is something to show i will post some pictures.

Welcome sir, to the OCN, and to the Air 540 thread.

Your system components look really good with regards to eye-candy and bling factor. The only thing I see that will/could be an issue is the 530w PSU, even without an overclock, with all the hardware your putting into this system, you will be straining that PSU in very short order, I would suggest something in the 650-750w range as a minimum personally, but that's just my opinion based on the hardware you have listed.


Edit: Just checked the BeQuiet PSU Calc, and without being able to include all the specs, it is recommending 700w as a minimum, thumb.gif

hey,

thanks for your quote smile.gif

Maybe it should be a thing to think about. I dont know if it is really necessary... I would for sure try to OC my CPU+GPU as soon as they are under water... maybe this would be better to upgrade the PSU... hm...

I'm ordering this set at the end of the month. Can you post some pics up of them when they come in and when you install them. Maybe we can get them attached to the op to refer people to for full case filters
