post #23431 of 107754
Knew it was going to be CSQ! Would have been so much better if I could've water-cooled my Lightnings instead of buying reference blocks but I refuse to ruin the aesthetics of my signature build with crop circles (well, if the rest of the blocks were already CSQ it wouldn't be so bad but I already have the "old" blocks which would look stupid with these)...

I don't see a problem with flushing a new rad with tap water - until you get the gunk out, why spend money (and what does it matter what the water pressure is? you're not really pressurizing the system unless you restrict exit flow or hook it up to a garden hose tap - I once asked koolance, and they told me they pressure tested to 70psi, IIRC).

I do it all the time (well, every once in a while when I re-build stuff). Then I flush it a few times with RO water before filling it with coolant.

Hi guys. I'm new here. One of my first few posts. I just thought I'd share pics of my current rig and try to join the club! thumb.gif

Once a 670 full cover block goes up for retail I will be changing a few things. Adding a 120mm radiator in the rear of the case and switching the reservoir and blue coolant.

On a side note here is a goodie I will show from my inbox yesterday. I pray it will look like their 690 block because it could not suit my build any better.

Thanks. I haven't tested the loop without the shroud but I am sure it saves a degree or 2. I will test this out next time I have to take it apart.

Looks like your 670 is bowing a bit. Make sure you get a back-plate for it when you watercool it.

Also, EK had some 670 blocks in stock yesterday when they were released (found here). Looks like they ran out pretty quick.

I noticed that bow as well. frown.gif I tried to make sure there is slack on the PCIE cables but somehow it still ended up bowing. I will definitely get a backplate not only for the support but for sexy factor.thumb.gif

Those EK blocks are tempting and despite the funky circles would look great in my build however there is one major drawback I see to those cards. It appears as though the fittings have only 1 place to attach to the block and that is at the bottom which poses a problem for my loop going from cpu to gpu. I don't want any funky looking fitting attachments in there if possible but it just might end up being the route I take depending on the style of the XSPC full cover block.

That is one thing that drove me nuts about them too. I can look past the circle design but their "link" implementation is downright stupid. Forces us to purchasing one of their multi-link adapters.

I'm looking forward to XSPC, Aquacomputer, Koolance, or what Heatkiller has to offer. As long as the VRM area is being cooled that is all that matters to me.

Yes as long as the GPU faces downwards we can all pretty much look past it. laughingsmiley.gif

Aquacomputer and Heatkiller blocks look alright but the bronze/nickel just doesn't suit my build. I pray pray pray the XPSC will look the same as the 690!
