First Water Cool Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
After 6 months of deciding, I finally went with this build:

CPU Block- Swiftech Apogee GT Extreme Performance
GPU Block- Swiftech MCW60-R
Pump- Swiftech MCP655-B
Resevoir- Swiftech MCRES-MICRO
Radiator- Swiftech MCR320-QP 3x120mm
Fluid- Feser One F1 Cooling Fluid
Radbox- Swiftech MCB-120
Tubing- 7 Feet Tygon 1/2in. ID
Clamps- Metal clamps

All of that working through:

CPU- AMD X2 6000+
GPU- EVGA 8800 GTX
MB- Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe

Considering how much studying I did before actually going with this build it felt like my 6th time going through.

Setup was relatively easy, except having to switch one fan out with another after having everything installed and already have tested the loop for about 20 hours.

I'm going to overclock once this is all settled down, but current temps on the hardware is excellent.
CPU @ 26 C (down from 45 C)
GPU @ 36 C (down from 50 C)
So there will definently be some major overclocking.

Took some pictures but I havent uploaded them yet, everything is pretty basic and clean considering the space you get inside a Cooler Master Cosmos.

What do you guys think?

Here are a few pics.
Sorry for the clarity, but I rushed them a bit.
Need to clean up the wiring down near the pump, too much clustered together.
Otherwise I am just loving how this thing looks and works.

BTW those temps were idle (cpu 26 C, gpu 36 C).

Cannot wait to overclock and kick the crap out of Crysis finally.
I had been playing on all high settings without any serious lag, until when you come out of the mountain and all the vapor rising from the ice.
