Note I have two different MB's between these pics, one being the 939 and the other is a 754 socket DFI NF4X Infinity system I had setup for initial testing of the system. The waterblock is a OCZ Hydroflow and the chipset block is a Swiftech MCW30. This system isn't finalized and really just a work in progress.
Note that I also have a single stage rad for the chiller effect and need something larger for a better effect. I also have shutoff valves for each res for obvious reasons and I also have drain valves (Not pictured) for each res setup to let out excess water after the ice melts so I can add more as I go or for simply draining the system as I need to.
The main rad is a three stage unit with all three fan slots utilized and I have it laying almost flat since heat tends to rise and it has to be elevated a bit to one corner so air can get out via it's outlet. I did this to maximize it's cooling efficiency (I think ) and I have both res setups higher than the rest of the system so it can literally bleed air out without the pumps doing anything. These pumps are Swiftech MCP655 "Vario" units that cannot be ran dry so that's why I have the res containers up high - I let water pressure itself do the job of priming these pumps and some of the bleeding.
I'm looking to get another chipset block and perhaps another CPU block to see if I can either do better or at least have the extra chipset block to run one of my A8N32's with since it would need two chipset blocks anyway.
It's butt-ugly but works anyway. I may get around to getting things neatened up once I find out what seems to work to setup a final config of things. Not sure if everything I'm trying here is the best way but that's why I'm experimenting with it.
