My Duralene is holding ok but there is a bit of discoloration. I would have to agree with KC and go back my original stand of just going with colored tube.

Hi all

Took the plunge into custom watercooling about a week ago biggrin.gif very pleased with the cooling ability. Able to take my Xeon W3680 up to 4.60GHz with no effort and very respectable temps.

Using an all EK Kit for my first attempt as it came with a guide and the CPU block, rad and pump are high performing parts. Ended up barely looking at the guide lol... Who reads instructions anyway.

EK H30 HFX 240 parts:
EK Supreme HF CPU Block
EK CoolStream RAD XTX 240
EK DCP 4.0 pump
EK MultiOption RES X3
EK PSC Fittings
EK EKoolant Concentrate + Distilled Water

I was lucky enough to have my own distiller which produces 0 ppm (parts per million), which saved me trouble trying to find somewhere that sold it. biggrinsmiley.gif

The tubes light up quite bright which the camera does not show very well.

I've had the HAF932 for a few years now and never thought I would utilize the lashings of space above the motherboard... so glad I didn't get rid now.









What you guys think... any thoughts/comments?

Bacardi has poor cooling properties. Jack Daniels will do the job better.

lol the funny thing is I actually considered using it but after reading up on it despite its better than cooliant for cooling it evaperates. But yea you have to admit it goes well with a all red and black system!!!

By the way, I've ordered some mayhems aurora due...do I need to add like a coil in it or does the dye/mix mean its not needed?


This is OT, but the answer is no-Aurora/Pastels and the X1 coolants do not need a SKC, they already have anti corrosion/biocide qualities within them- go over to Mayhems a look see thumb.gif

And btw, you do know that the Aurora range of coolants are for show rigs and are not recommended for everyday use over long time spans wink.gif

Edit: and two flow meters?
Yes. I had the D5 sitting here and some empty space so I put it in. Normally the MCP35x2 does all the work.

I'll be swapping in my other UD5H with the delidded 3770K when I get time. Meanwhile it's sitting in my venerable "old" Switch 810 seen here:

Clouding, plasticizer, coloured, clear, dyes. So much to consider!

After trying clear tubing, I can pretty much say the best option is to go for coloured tubing (I went red for my new case) and forget about plasticizer or clouding as you won't notice these on coloured tubing and it won't affect your blocks or performance at all unless you buy some very cheap tubing that falls apart. biggrin.gif

In Europe you can't get the Primochill Advanced LRT yet, so I'd suggest going for Mastekleer PVC red tubing and forget about plasticizer/clouding, you won't notice it. tongue.gif

I bought some MasterKleer 1/2 - 5/8 in dark red just to see what it looked like. I was expecting it to be opaque but I could easily see through it. I would prefer a tubing that wasn't so translucent. Although maybe it will look slightly different with 1/2 - 3/4 and blood red mayhems flowing through it?

Could cause you problems if the cops see it and think it is a Still biggrin.gif

Incidentally, wouldn't this look great as a Reservoir? Have to clean the Mercury out first though. rolleyes.gif
