Rosewill Black Hawk: Buzzsaw Edition

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
First ever mod. Any input helps.

Case is a Rosewill blackhawk Ultra.
For the Power supply I have a Rosewill 80+ gold rated 750 Watt
For the GPU I have a Sapphire Vapor X R9 270x OC edition.
I have 2 8 gig sticks of Mushkin ram.
As you can see I still have a few parts to get, CPU, MOBO, and hard drive(s)
I am looking at water cooling (orange tubing to go with the colors) so any pointers on that would be helpful (never done it before)

Thanks

For watercooling you need a pump. Eg: Swiftech MP355, or XSPC D5.

You need some tubes to connect the compenents.

You need a waterblock for your CPU or GPU. Eg: XSPC Raystorm, Swiftech Apogee.

You need a radiator to dissapate heat. Eg: XSPC EX360, Swiftech QP320.

You also need some barbs and fitting to connect the tube with the components.

You can buy a kit to make your life easier. http://products.ncix.com/detail/xspc-raystorm-d5-ex360-water-95-79208-1198.htm

Where are you located? I have some watercooling gear that I no longer need.

Started working on pulling apart the case for painting and modding. I have removed the drive cages to make room for the water cooler.

I love seeing cases get resprayed, the orange would look fantastic i would say too.
You can also throw a closed loop liquid cooler in there if you don't want to make a custom loop either, as awesome as they do look

I have thought about a closed loop. But since this is a show build, the cooling is going to be crazy. Thinking a 4" diameter acrylic tube filled with florescent orange coolant, with black lights in the center. Make it look like a reactor.

4" diameter tubing between the components?! Or as a reservoir?


Love the orange!
