The problem with mod'ing this, IMO, is that you then have a color mismatch between the front LED strip and the front fans. Of course you could swap out the fans for a different color, but Phanteks doesn't make red LED fans and not everybody is adept at soldering LEDs.

Fwiw, I ended up leaving the front LED strip blue to match the front fans, even though the color scheme inside my case is mostly red/black. Looks fine. smile.gif

I always wanted to change the fans, but never got the time. Anyways, I just ordered some R9s for the rebuild, next is to order some blocks (waiting for Aquacomputer blocks to come out), Have a couple reviews in line that need to be done, and then I'm start working on my enthoo build.


Between Maximus VI Formula users, there is finally great news from EK:

I was too, but its surprisingly easy!
I used the hammer and vice method, borrowed one from a friend.
You dint even need a workbench, i just put it in the corner of a room pushed up against the skirting board, and then with a block of wood resting against the cpu, hit it a few times with a hammer.
I did buy an old pentium for £3 to get the feel of it, and then after did mine straight away

Once you delid, what do you use to clean and then what compound do you put on the die?

I just cleaned the die off with some paper towels and some isopropyl rubbing alcohol (£3 off ebay). Then using a credit card, I scraped off the existing sillicon glue and rubbed it all down with a coffee filter.
I'm using the EK naked ivy mount so i dont use the IHS (this only works if you have an EK supremacy). I used the bundled Gelid GC-Extreme TIM between the die and the block, but any good tim will do the the job and be within a couple of degrees. MX-4 is good too

More than enough rad id say smile.gif I have a 420 and a 280 and with 2 780 GPUs (32% OC) and 4770k CPU (4.6GHz) my water temps are at 30C and I have just push fans. I was gonna add pull when Phanteks let us buy additional PCBs but now I don't really see the point.

As for the pump..... I went with a 35X2 (Liked the idea of having 2nd pump for redundancy if 1st one died) .... tho it seems to run just fine with just one of the pumps running

Yeah I stopped at 4.6, I have no doubt my chip will do it, I just want to get everything nice and stable for a bit before I get the oc itch

The i7 and the HT does make it a bit more difficult .... maybe I'll try and see what i could do w/ HT off. But w/ it on, Im a full 0.11 volts above ya so will generate more heat regardless, lidded or delidded....but lookin at the numbers.... at 1.3 volts, I'm 0.04 more than you and was only 6C higher .... seeing as 0.07 more volts took me up 15C .... just on the ratio I'd estimate the 0.11 that I'm higher to be worth close to 22C .... If I could be stable at 1.26, that would put me at 52C w/ HT on ..... lidded.

I assume you overclocking in manual mode, I've been testing on adaptive since that's what everyday setting would be ..... I'd easily shoot past 1.5 volts if I ran AIDA on adaptive..... jumps up to 1.408 under RoG RB which is was close enuff to my self imposed 1.4 limit (at no more than 1.392 99% of the time) that I let it pass....since only for short bursts.

I had a goal of 4.6 Ghz @ 2400 RAM speed and < 75C..... I didn't think my chances of reaching that goal lidded were possible.....now that I'm there, I'm a little less inclined to tear down and delid..... who knows tho..... might be tempted over time to go for 4.7 ... then again...... it took 0.7 to get to 4.6 from 4.5..... would expect more to be required from 4.6 to 4.7 and even that much puts me at 1.45 which is territory i don't wanna be in for a production box.

Two fans max on any connector

Typical loops do not need more than 1 pump. If you are running some really thick fluid with lots of additives, or if you have a lot of tight bends, you might need more than 1 pump.

Also the 35X pump top is one of the best pump tops for DDC pumps. Head pressure is the main thing when looking at pumps/tops.

10mm 7ply voidless solid birth plywood with overlap corner joints glued, drilled and tapped. Than prepped & painted with a good smooth coat of satin black paint and 30mm castors installed.
