WC setup what do you think? (Update: PICS!) - Page 2

I think I will stick with the pump I have on there I think it will more than do the job and be reliable and it seems like a good price/performance value.

Edit: I'm still thinking about going to half inch tubing because I believe the primo-flex is still pretty flexible. Oh, did I mention that I LOVE primo-flex tubing as long as it's sleeved.

Edit: Would anybody recommend mounting the rad inside the armor or the outside? It seems
there is a lot of room inside the case in the front to mount the rad.
Also what shroud would you recommend?

OK so I've changed the list around a bit. I've added the d-tek fusion cpu block and changed my tubing to 1/2". I also switched the rad to a swiftech MCR 220 because it's a few dollars cheaper. Here's the link to the new List.
Also is the Black ice gt better than the swiftech or are they about the same as far as performance?

swiftech is better than the black ice pro and gt. The swiftys are beat by the gts and gtx with high cfm fans though.

I had a GTS240 mounted in an Armor in the front and it worked great. Here are a few pictures although they aren't the best. Hope they help some.

Appreciate the pics looks like that setup fit really well. I would guess the cooling is about the same whether mounted in front of the case or externally out the back since you are getting fresh air in both cases. I haven't quite decided but I think I'm going to for the inside mounting method.

Can't really go wrong either way, both have there advantages/disadvantages but the difference is so marginal it really makes little difference. Good luck and remember to post pics when you're done.

Just to update I went with the Apogee GT block and did get 1/2" tubing. I will be posting pics of my new WC system after I'm done leaking testing and have everything all pretty .

Here are the pics of my new completed WC System. Things I went with:

Swiftech Apogee GT
Swiftech MCW30
Primochill 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing
Swiftech MCR220 Rad
Two Yate Loon 47cfm 120mm fans
D-tek DB1 pump
Smart Coils

First off I know I know I need to clean up the wiring in my case. I'm going to have to cut a couple of holes in the motherboard tray to accomplish this.

I mounted the rad in the front of the case as you can see. To accomplish this I bought some L-Brackets at Home Depot and applied them to the rad with mounting tape to secure the rad and it worked like a charm. I also used mounting tape to hold down the res & the pump to the bottom of the case. The smart coils saved my behind on that tight bend between the northbridge and the cpu blocks.

It runs great no leaks; I now have my Q6600 clocked to 3.6 using 1.47v after vdrop (1.53v in bios) 12 hour Prime Stable. It maxes at 59C and idle 33C. Anyway enjoy the pics .

Looks nice (except for the lack of cable management) but why is the res so low? It should be mounted higher than the pump.

Thanks for the pic's......Looking good, if you think your cable management is bad you should see mine, I 'm just happy if I don't trip on my wires when I'm walking by....

I like keeping my res up above the pump to, keeps your pump gravity fed so there is less chance of dry starts...

Looks like your getting real decent temp's, thats the main thing...
