i got my WC gear today!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am starting my first LC loop. I got the items in the mail today (all from Cyber Druid). i got the following parts:

Thermochill PA120.3 (customized by CD for Monolith) see pic
D-Tek Fuzion
Switech MCP 655 pump
Custom 3-bay Waterfall Reservoir (again, by CD) see pic
20 feet Clearflex tubing

So, this is what i am planning. Let me know what you think, if any improvements can be made, please advise me.

I have a Cosmos case, with bottom HDD cage cut out, cable management holes cut in MB tray, and all fans grills cut off. The Rad is very large, as such will not fit in my case. I want to cut an additional hole for the third fan on the rad and mount the rad on the top of my case. (removing the black part on top of the case). I will then run the tubing through the W/C holes in the back of the case. The pump will be in the place where the old HDD's were. And the Res will be in the bottom 3 drive bays. I will also put a few blue CCFL's under the res to have the water show blue for the waterfall.

WHat do you think? Can someone please link me a good guide for first time Water coolers. I know how to do it, but i want to make sure i do not miss some easily skipped steps. Thank you, below find my awesome drawing of my planned setup. In the pic the black is the rad, the yellow is the cpu block, the blue is the res and the red is the pump. I know that is pretty self-explanatory, but ya never know.

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure you'd need to contact CyberDruid to get one of those...

Go to CyberDruid shop, and check for Factory Seconds link, they are ones that have a small imperfection (CD is such a perfectionist ) and he will not sell them in his shop, so he discounts them to 50.00.

EDIT here is the link:
