INTRO

Since I have enjoyed so much assembling my rig I just want to share with you my experience with Mumukin. It might help somebody sometime.
It all started in December 2012 when I invested "some" money in hardware and decided to watercool everyhting.
At first, my only concern was to create a consistent rig without spending a fortune.
As time has passed, this hobby has grown in me to the point of becoming almost everything. I am the watercooling guy at the office thumb.gif.

Result:



Maximus V Formula with EK Supremacy and blocks installed:



Next step is... yeah, you guessed it!





First full assembly. Waiting for the case to arrive to europe.



Testing the dye was fun. As I also purchased Pt Nuke PHN this had to be provisional. After a few days, I flushed everything and went DI water and PT Nuke only.



Really great red!



2012-11-26

Finally the case arrived to shops. Caseking.de had it first.
Time to tear all down and prepare to get everything inside the glorious Phantom 820.



I won't bore you with all the process. This case is so big that with all the hardware and water cooling stuff that I had at this moment, there was not any problem at all.

One week away from my next birthday I ordered a few more goodies:

Alternate.es order:

  • EVGA GTX670 FTW 1GB

2013-04-11

Caseking.de order:

  • Masterkleer 13/10 tubing
  • Mayhems Pastel ice white
  • 2x Corsair SP120 HP twin pack
  • Noiseblocker NB-eLoop Fan B12-4
  • EKWB FC680 GTX+ Nickel
  • EK-FC680GTX Backplate Black CSQ
  • EK-FC Bridge DUAL Parallel 3-Slot CSQ Plexi


I changed the tubing because, as you can see, Tygon was terribly clouded. One Bitspower double rotary was harmed. I was unable to untighten it by hand mad.gif



A little testing before mounting it inside the case:





The CSQ parallel bridge give the cards a sturdy fit. For those with experienced eyes, I have to point that the bridge of the photo was not the correct one, had it borrowed from a friend while mine was coming.



Just for looks, I pulled the PSU grill out to mount it over the 140mm NZXT fan. I changed the tube routing:



The coloured fluid just makes everything blend perfectly. Black, white and a touch of red. Aesthetically I was very pleased with the final result.









After some gaming/testing, I found deltas to be a little over what I expected. I thought that push/pull in bottom UT60 was going to make a difference, but insted of it, I was under the impression that only more noise was produced while deltas were still being almost the same as before. The upper XT45 with eloops also produced a little too much noise. The Phantom 820 gives you the oportunity of controlling fans, but B12-4's starting rpms are high enough to bother me.
As mentioned before, I became mad and the idea of purchasing an external rad grew in me.

Caseking.es order:



And the external watercooling madness started by disassembling everything. This was my Bitpower fittings collection. It is compulsory to shot a family photo.

j2g2.jpg

That was my first plan. Pump and res over the MORA as an independent cooling unit. Borrowed some ideas here and there. Plumbing was not challenging.

z5eq.jpg

Hell of a lightning:

7ifs.jpg

The draining port was almost Bitspowered to the max.

i6h8.jpg

The route inside the case also needed to change:

j4l6.jpg

rd0v.jpg

The real challenge was to use the quick disconnects to be able to split the loop and have the case isolated from everything else. At the end it turned out pretty well.As you can see, I had to leave the chipset cooling block aside. IMO it was worthless the effort of including in the loop.
I do not know why the copper behind the plexi seemed like corroded with flash on.

I recorded a small video to show (off) to my friends. Hope you enjoy as well.

My HQ:







As I really did not take any shots, I will post a short video of my new HQ in the under roof. All is provisional. I do not like the inlet of the res but that was the only way I could finish assembly without cutting any hoses. M8 was already in my mind. Crappy youtube free song...

Aquatuning.es order:



Some testing was carried out. Love those rads!
This little baby is a Monsta with push fans and shrouds. smile.gif



Size comparison between a 140.3 UT60 and a 120.3 Monsta.





Need more table or less rads?





Yes, I know, it is overkill. But I plan on a dead silent build.

2013-12-26

After many time thinking about everything twice, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered my M8 with pedestal.



2014-01-08

Shipped!!!!!!!

900x900px-LL-f376a450_Dibujo.jpeg

Today I woke up and as the last few days, the first thing I did was check the status of the shipment. Great news, It is in Spain!!!

Finally, M8 arrived to work. What can I say? I really enjoyed the unboxing. All perfectly packed up. Attention to detail is awesome. Every part, bagged separately. Can't find words to describe so let the photos speak by themselves :lol:

I rushed to have it mounted to lay back and stare at the magnitude of that piece of art.
