Hey all completed my first water loop...nothing special used the EK l360 kit since thye had it local microcenter...only cooling the cpu so figured didn't need a crazy pump or anything biggrin.gif hope I did good...looks good to me and is cooling nicely...keeping my 4770k under 75c at 1.5 vcore delided

heard the tubes will blacken everything but ill clean it in 8 months or sometin..lol also I really liked the tubing as it matched the flat blacxk look vs the primochill tubes

tubing is waay more complicated than it has to be wink.gif why didn´t you rout the tubing from the base of your res/pump combo into your cpu -> rad -> res again? Less tubing = better temps biggrin.gif

looks nice though thumb.gif

74°C max on 1.5Volts? :O clockspeed?

ahh makes sense ^^

i want to know the clockspeed though!

1.5Volts is not very healthy for everyday use ...

you could move the fans on the 360 to the outside of the case (they still fit under the mesh) and use push/pull or just free up some room inside the case.

As someone else has already posted, you can put fans between the front mesh & the front of the radiator for push/pull config. Will need to find or make some new filters though.

Also, what fittings did you use to connect all your graphics cards?
