Hi guys and girls, this is my first attempt at a water cooled build, been threatening to build a new rig for a few years and finally got round to it.

Realised shortly after ordering i hadn't ordered a pump top.


After thoughts:

XSPC Laing D5 Acetal Pump Top (Multi Port)
Angled Adapter Double 45°Revolvable G1/4 to G1/4 inner thread X 4
PrimoChill Vortex Flow Indicator clear - UV orange
Monsoon 19/13mm (ID 1/2 OD 3/4) Free Center Compression Fitting x 6
ATX PSU Bridging Tool 24 Pin - White
Filling bottle 1000ml
1/4" BSPP Delrin/Acetal T Piece Fitting - Thermochill
Hose Cutter - Large (10 - 40mm Max)
UV Orange Cable Modders (U-HD) High Density Braid Sleeving Kit -


Most of the kit arrived yesterday, the biggest battle was getting the 2 x 360 radiators in. Im still waiting on the rest of my parts but this is where im upto so far.


































As i was creating this post my current rig decided to BSOD on me, i think he knows his days are numbered. Die with dignity AMD.






Ill post some more pics when the rest of the parts arrive, at the moment without the pump top im stuck. I still have to find a home for the hard disks once all the plumbing is in, and then replace all the sleeving with orange brading.

Also gonna get rid of the red gaming plates on the motherboard and replace / respray black. I honestly thought the case was bigger, although without the watercooling it would be fine, the finish and build quality is the best case ive ever had, previously used coolmaster. With all the watercooling equipment in its getting tight and ive not even got the pump in or the rest of the 3/4" tubing.
