Took the plunge into custom watercooling about a week ago
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.
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?
