That was the hardest installation of my freaking life.


The tubes didn't come out like I want them to at all...

I am going to have to reinstall it one day but not now... not this week probably.

Again, I want to sincerely thank you all! This is why I love this club, & always ask questions here, first, even if it is not CMSS case specific. I value the well explained, detailed responses I receive here.



To keep the progress up to date, I am happy to say I have finalized the purchases. I feel very confident with the choices I have made, and it is all thanks to the Scouts.


GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Although I know, K-10, and maybe others were more towards the side of the 790FX, I felt, in the end, the 890GX was the better option for me. I would like to note that although I chose the 890GX, I could not have made the decision without the information about the 790FX.

Thank you K-10!


AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
Although the 955 CPU has more users than the 965, I have chosen to the 965. (Please note, I have purchased the 965 125W, where I have been advised is "C3") I wanted to get an OEM processor, but since it is not available on Newegg, I pony'd up the money and got the retail.


Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model 996832
Taking Rockr's words into consideration & my budgeting, the RAM was budgeted. Although, I think I have made a wise decision in the brand, timing, and overall "bang for buck" based on the fact that I needed to buy everything at once. Hopefully you guys feel the same way.

The order has been processed.

I got free 3 day UPS shipping on everything & a 3% Bing Cash Back (about $13.00).
  • $443.97 - Combined sub-total of all 3 components
  • $000.00 - Free shipping
  • $000.00 - Tax free
  • $013.00 - Cash back
  • $430.97 - Total spent
Now the worst part... Waiting.

The harder they are, the more accomplished you feel. Good job on completing the task. Now that you've installed it once, you could do it again, no problem.

Tube positioning. Path, I am on the same OCD boat with you. If you notice my pump, the "Corsair" logo is upside-down, but it is perfectly upside-down. Reason is my tubing felt like it was getting too much tension if the logo was right-side-up. So instead I flipped the pump upside-down, and the tubes seemed to naturally move that way.

Thats exactly how I feel.

The tubes are TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO restrictive.

Well, I just realized I don't have many pics of my rig. I took a bunch when I swapped the PSU so I'll post some for ya then I'll take more of the W/C bits and post them, maybe tomorrow. Gonna play FEAR 2 tonight.

Ok, this is interesting these are the 2 PSU's together, Enermax on the right is 80+ silver and rated at 1200watts peak and 1050 continuous, the Chieftec on the left is just 80+ and 1000watts peak:
Attachment 148984

Here's a little of the guts and the glory, you can see the rad at the top, the fancy compression fittings on my blue PVC hose (which I now know is hard to find), the new Enermax PSU, that's a Swiftech Apogee XT water block on the proc the little green LED's that say 49 is my pretty acurate temp readout and on the monitor there is a gadget that shows how much of each core is being used, I'm folding so 7 are full and 1 is fluctating.
Attachment 148985

This is a little better focus on the machine and not the monitor.
Attachment 148986

This is when the flash went off, look at the top where the optical drives are, you can see the bare metal, I'll either paint those of fabricate a cover up.
Attachment 148987

Last the whole project done and the system re-booted and I was able to move the CCFL's, they were smack together on the bottom, between the Chieftec and the panel. I moved one over away from the panel because the Enermax is also thinner there's more room. The other I put up top zipped to the grill next to the rad.
Attachment 148988

Oh, on the ones where you can see the front you can see the LED light through the res window.

@ K10 Thanks for the korrect spelling of Kauai, I knew I didn't have it right. Yeah, aren't the beaches of the big island messed up from pollution? Or is it just a different sand?
Also right you are, it's American English, just don't tell that to an english (British, get off my back) person.

Sticking with the Corsair H50. All the parts are staying the same. I'm basically just updating my signature rig.

World at War huh? I might just take you up on that offer. Is that on Steam?

Do you happen to have XBOX Live? I have COD MW2 on the console.

The tubes are what they are. I'm sure the engineers had their reasons. Who am I to judge? I say the best thing to do is (for a fellow OCD'er) find the best positioning with the pump with the Corsair logo exactly upside-down, or exactly side ways (2 ways). Good luck!

Brisleep,

That rig looks bomb! Very neat and roomy. A+
Have you every thought about adding your graphic card to that water cool loop?
That would make your gaming much more quiet I'm sure.
