I'm amazed... I don't actually HATE that 7970 Lightning water block with the crop circles! Still hate that it would clash with other blocks in my rig...

Sometimes it can cause actual havoc with the system and cause the loop to be blocked. Here are some photos from Michael @Mayhems Facebook page, citing plasticizer actually clogged his loop and caused one of the tubes to pop off. Now I think this is an extreme scenario, but there is the risk.


I think B Neg can vouch for this as he's friends with Michael on Facebook as well.

After months and months of looking at the amazing builds on this thread, I am ready to add mine to the club. Here's my Switch 810 build with a 420mm full sized (60mm thick) rad. I am starting with the CPU for now then adding the GPU when the next generation cards come out.

I am planning on adding some Mayhems dye to the loop but I did not like the overall color of the reg green UV dye so later on, I am planning making a better Toxic waste looking green with some blue and yellow. The Tubing I am running is the 1/2" - 3/4" Durelene

More info can be found in my log. Enjoy









Revision 1 before I swap'd the rear fan out and took out the 45 deg for a 90deg fitting on the rad by the rear fan.

That 420 up top is boss. Just wow, good job. thumb.gif Also painting some of the pieces on the exterior green really sets off the colour scheme.
I'm also going to try out Durelene myself next time I change the loop, just hope the price doesn't go up with everyone jumping on it.

This is the first time i have found an Amd cpu block look smexy! You pulled off an amazing job here mate thumb.gif

Hey, quick question.

Does anyone have any info about the stacked 6-pin connector on the 680? Specifically, can I unsolder the stacked one and put two 6-pins side by side? Or does the one with solder pads for an 8-pin need to be 8-pin only? I really want to get rid of this fugly connector!

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Its technically feasible but void warranty-able too wink.gif Check for the GB WF3, it uses the same pcb as the reference 680 or the DC2 which have blocks available forrrrr them too. Tbh, I'm not a fan of the stacked power connectors but it is what it is thumb.gif

Haha, I already have my 680 biggrin.gif and an Alphacool waterblock on it.

I have seen people do mods with their 680s to get rid of that stacked connector. I was just wondering if any of the people here have any information or attempted such a thing.

I'm not afraid to get my soldering iron out and have some fun tongue.gif

sry but i can't agree you with i been using mine for about a month now and theirs not one sign of clouding...you must be running sum nasty coolant to cause that... the bend radius is perfectly fine for me their's no kinks in my loop even when bending a short piece. i have proof if you want it thumb.gif.... just a heads up it will cloud up quickly or slowly depending on the coolant you use thumb.gif

Anyone have experience with the Walker clear vinyl tubing they sell at Home Depot?
I ended up replacing half of my clear tubing this weekend, but fell short of finishing because I ran out. Then today, I remember reading a post somewhere in this thread about going to your local hardware store to get some. So today at lunch I did just that... Lowe's didn't have any, so I tried my luch at Home Depot, since they're right down the street from work. The Walker hose is of a similar consistency as the Danger Den tubing, but it seems just a hair more stiffer.
The three downsides of the Walker tubing is that slight density increase, it's not UV reactive, and there are black ink markers on the tubing at each foot. But the good thing about this tubing is that at least if I need to replace a section in a hurry, I don't have to wait for it to arrive in the mail.

I can't actually say if it was the Walker brand tubing or not - but I did buy some from Home Depot that was just plain clear tubing. It was ok to use in a pinch, but I found that that "stiffness" dissipated with a little heat. In fact, at full load, I had to watch the loop coming off my GPU or it would go flaccid and kink. It didn't try to melt or anything - just lost a good bit of its stiffness and was easily pliable between your fingers. So just check the temp rating, otherwise it should work fine.
Edit: I checked - mine was WATTS as well, both the plain and the fiber reinforced - only the fiber reinforced didn't have the pliability issue.

If you want something that will be durable, as well as readily available, I use this from Home Depot. It will plasticize over time (as most all tubing does now days) but I like it. It's very sturdy and hard to kink, so you can form a pretty tight radius with it....best of all it's CHEAP!

I have pics of it in use in my sig rig Domino. thumb.gif
If you are looking to show off your Mayhems Aurora or something of the like - then this probably won't work for you. It's not bad looking tubing, but the fiber reinforcement hinders a clear view of the fluid inside.
