not sure if it helps or not, but if you go to Alphacool's website to the product pages (link and Link) you'll find these two manuals:
this on the V1, and this on the V2
if you scroll to the bottom you would see the difference between both.
So it would be that bad to include the TF 'block' in a loop with 2 rads, cpu and gpu that a D5 couldn't handle it? should i consider the 35x route? don't include the TF at all?

The TF is a huge bottleneck, plan your system without including that.

I doubt the mobo manuals would warn against including a GPU in the loop with it if it wasn't really a major issue, much less try to use 2 GPU's with it.

Of course you'd want to use the smaller tube on the TF block.

If you're going to spend the kind of money that you're already looking at for a nice custom loop and dual GPU's, it just seems foolish not to spend a few bucks more for the EK block made for the MVF and ditch the hokie TF entirely.

Trying to ghetto rig it in is going to look like crap, and be a distant second rate to doing it right the first time around.

Excellent Unboxing bro. Wish more unboxings were this well done. applaud.gif

Might get one of these for my Girl's system when I start in on it. thumb.gif

What TIM did they put in with it, you missed that but that's just a niggling little detail. cheers.gif

~Ceadder smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif

Thanks thumb.gif Crap I didn't cover that, I guess that's what happens when you have to redo everything but the unboxing in one day due to a HDD crashing and burning. It came with Cooler Master's grey TIM. I used AC MX-2 for the review.

If you have the kit and have taken photos to show us,cool beans,this what Bundy does to great effect...remember tho,these are his pictures which is why he gets to post them.
Obviously if the pic is an aid for assisting someone then thats fine.
If you see new kit pics then start a thread and link it here,then we can comment on it directly and the OP gets some recognition

Reviews has its own section,feel free to post links to the video there then we can comment on it,this keeps this thread clean and on topic. thumb.gif

If your review videos are well made and the community wants them,I think it could be worth adding a second listing for them on the first page,I will try and get a poll up later on.



What was that 5 post madness about Ceadder? You fall asleep on the KB again? biggrin.gif

Fixed, but really with all the posts and pages with no pics, you pick this one to single out blushsmiley.gif I do see understand why you might not want the reviews getting posted here, we all might start doing them and over run this thread with them.

BTW the review section is now separate from the forum, and from what I've seen no one goes there now. If you search for a product the reviews will be the last thing in the results even if it is the newest post. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

firstly, this doesn't look that bad and i'll even dare to say beautiful despite the hose clamps. (plan to go on a similar loop and case)
Secondly, how bad is that bottleneck that you speak of?
thirdly, holding the manual in front of me (page 1-47), it is only a recommendation. between those recommendations is to route the waterflow from the cpu block to the TF (which makes minimal difference) and i guess the separation recommendation by the manual is from the assumption that dual loop > single loop.
and lastly, as being a first timer in WC and planning a loop with single GPU, the EK block is not mere "a few bucks more". it is 100$ more. (and it includes the chipset block which i find unnecessary for Z77, let alone the CSQ design. not saying that it is bad, just that by going CSQ you need to go full CSQ to make it look good)

I wasnt singling anyone out GoodInk,i was updating the thread about 30 pages back when i noticed videos coming in...
I want the resources here too but i cant really add them to the database...

Here is what we can do,we start a new thread especially for video reviews on WC gear and link them to their own database or we add them to this thread and link them to their own database on the first post here.
I have been meaning to do one for Bundy anyway so its no real problem.....but....

I dont really want this to become a review thread,discussion-yes,but not reviews,this thread moves fast anyway without adding more....

The block is heavy frown.gif, needs some support....ghetto mod skills to the rescue biggrin.gif




Needs some more refinement ("prototype") and I also need a new and better blade for my Jigsaw to make better cuts. I had some spare acrylic sheet and rather than drop $150 on new backplates, the 3mm thick sheets will provide some needed support smile.gif

Hi all…

I am glad to announce the finish of my Build. It took me almost a year, with several problems I had to overcome, but I think at the end, I have come up with something I really like thumb.gif

Still, my Build is miles away from the perfection of other OCN members’ builds, but I am more than happy with it smile.gif

Before I proceed with a few pictures, I would like to thank OCN and TheLab.gr members, who have inspired me with their builds and many times helped me directly during my water-cooling endeavour.

Also, I would like to thank and congratulate for their excellent customer support Specialtech, Mayhems and of course Swiftech , who really spent quite a LOT of time with me, trying to solve the issues I have come across this last year.

Enjoy the pictures…
cheers.gif
(Build Log will follow if/whenever I find some time)

I do feel that there is way too much chatting going on in here for this being a picture thread. If you miss a couple days, you are 100 posts behind, in fact I have pretty much gave up on reading all the posts. If I have fallen behind I don't even go through the pages sometimes and just end up skipping to the last post.

The title is "Water Cooling Club And Picture Gallery". Not "Water Cooling Picture Gallery". Which is why so much chat is going on I guess.
And I find the thread to move way slower than a couple weeks ago. I check it several times a day and most the time I wonder how it can be so quiet (well it did go really fast one day not so long ago but it started with OverClocking and ended with PSUs...)
