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.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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?

I like it.Neet. VRMs and Northbridge if your board is warming up.

I have a Sabertooth x58 as well and the NB does seem to get pretty toasty. There was never a block made specifically for this board, but I think a few of the Koolance universal blocks fit. Never tried myself as i really don't like the look of them too much

How are the NB fans? I have a XSPC RS and EX and need fans for both. They will be on a controller but am hoping I can have them be really quiet.
thanks

I'd look at adding a 90 to the pump outlet and rotating the pump so the tubes come off front to back, as opposed to side to side.

That would allow you to run the loop: res > pump > cpu > rad > res and it would clean up the tubing runs considerably.

I have all of them, eloops are great if they're in push and nothings restricting them otherwise they make an unpleasant noise. Multiframes are really nice though

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

I just got my hands on some 3/8-5/8 Tygon Norprene. I know it doesn't have the greatest bend radius but seems like it has been trouble free for a lot of people, and i love the matte black colour.

Agreed. I still plan on dying mine black at some point.

Looks good (particularly lit up) but when I built my WC loop in my HAF-X (I used to have a HAF 932 but sold it because the HAF-X has more space and a black interior) I wanted the tubes to be as inconspicuous as possible so I rotated the pump through 90 degrees so the the inlet faced front and put a 90 degree elbow on the pump then ran the tube along the bottom of the case then through another 90 degree elbow up to the Reservoir then up to the radiator.Somebody said it was a bad idea to have 2 extra joints because it restricts coolant flow but I don't think it has much if any effect.
