I went with 60mm RX240 on the bottom and the Blac Ice 480 on top

Very nice rig! Liking the combination red tubing and red coolant for the clear res! Props to you man
What temps are you getting?

Thanks smile.gif The red dye actually didn't work out very well, it completely dissipated after about 2 weeks. Since then, I've drained and flushed the system, but still no sign of the dye, so it's either gunking up some crevice deep in my loop, or it adhered to the tubing walls and never came out. It wasn't actually very much dye, maybe 10 drops of dark red + 1 drop dark blue. Currently, I'm runnning pure distilled water + PT Nuke. I find that the red led tube in the reservoir makes the dye unnecessary, anyway.

My 4930k idles around 27c, with all fans around 600rpm. Honestly, I could probably turn the fans off much of the time and it would perform just as well from natural radiation.

At max Prime95 or IBT load, it maxes out around 60c @4.6ghz or 70c @4.7ghz. Doesn't make much difference what speed I run the fans when I'm benching, 1200rpm cools just as well as 2400rpm. I need to play around with my pump speed and see if slowing it down to level 2 might actually bring temps down a bit, just haven't gotten around to it.

In gaming, my cpu hovers around 40c give-or-take, and my gpu's never top 40c.

Cost savings. lol Those e-loops are freakin expensive, so I went with the cheaper Corsairs in the top where they're not visible. I like the way the UV lighting sets off the white blades on the e-loops on the bottom.

Ah i completely didn't see the difference between the two pics, yeah you're right the red led looks great in distilled water. Im running DW too, cant be bothered with the hassle of dyes, so i went with coloured tubing aswel

Nice to see someone is getting similar temps with the same graphics cards as me (i've got twin 680s, but we all know they're the same as 770s), and that my alphacool blocks are doing okay

Yeah, I actually had a Black Ict GTX that I picked up used for a great price in advance of my build, but I ended up scrapping it in favor of Alphacools on top and bottom. I was just seduced by the streamlined design and multiple ports on the Alphas.

When I upgrade again, probably next year, I think I'm gonna switch to rigid acrylic tubing, and run it with Mayhems pastel dark red or Aurora 2 if it's available by then. Distilled definitely gives the best performance, but to be honest my cooling is kinda overkill for my needs, so I may actually go a little more aesthetic next time. But for now, I do like the clean look of clear distilled with the red & uv highlight lighting. smile.gif

Had an idea, but it would involve bending a part of the included radiator bracket... I'm referring to the bracket that comes included at the bottom of the case. If you bent the tab down or broke it here:



one could still put a 360 or 480 in push pull but this would give the fans more room to pull in air. What do you guys think? This is assuming the spacing on that bracket will work as work.


Edit: NVM, I see now with that bracket it offsets the 120mm enough where it won't clear the brace.
