[Build Log] My first water cooling build.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello I have already finished my build but I thought I would share some pics from the process anyway, I ordered a Carbide 540 and a EK L360 KIT to get me started with water cooling. My initial plan was to water cool my 7950 too but decided against it since I might upgrade soon anyway, so I ordered a mk-26 so I would not have to listen to the awful xfx cooler.

Thanks to Gleniu, his build log inspired me to do this. Link to his log here.
Hardware used in build:
i5-3570k
XFX 7950 DD
Asus Maximus V Gene
EK L360 KIT
Masterkleer white tubing
Scythe Kaze master pro
Corsair Carbide Air 540
Asus Xonar STX
Kingston HyperX 8GB
Samsung 830 SSD ~120GB
OCZ Agility 2 100GB
Samsung 1 TB and 500 GB HDD




My Hardware:



^ I would not recommend buying a card with this cooler, but at least it was cheap.

^ The Xonar STX, this has served me well over the years.



^ This is why I won't have my new case on the floor anymore.



^ Two pieces of history tongue.gif

Temp. setup in new case:



WC parts arrive!










And that's it!

One thing I am wondering about though, is it normal to hear a little bit of dripping water sound from the rad?

Aand the build log will be updated when I get my mounting brackets for the mk-26 they were missing from the package -.-

Like water dripping into a puddle of water.

edit: there was still some air in the rad, i tipped the case a little bit to the side and shook it and away it went.
