hey, it matches the other two. :-P

and it is better than having them in the CPU loop. ;-)

Yes and yes but does it really need to be cooled is the big question. Motherboards don't normally get all that hot as long as they've got some form of airflow.

Mmmn. It's his money so he can do as he wants but I don't see any sense in paying for another quad rad, 8 fans, another tank, more waterblocks and more tubing if you can get away without it lol.

Mcoffey, you get bonus points for spending more on cooling than computer parts. Please excuse me while I change my pants.

It's only a triple rad for the chip set/mosfets And it does help a lot with stability considering the clocks and it crunches 100% Boinc 24/7. Nvidia's 790i aren't the coolest running chip sets to begin with. At least not based on my experience and what I do with um. Plus, once I decide to do another build, having the chip set/mosfet loop in place makes it really easy to convert the main case over to a nice single loop LC server build. Given that I wanted to do a triple loop build with the focal point being the triple EK res's inside the case, it was only natural that I cooled the chip sets with the third loop.

Thanks. It's over the top, but for my 7th LC build I wanted to do something different and everything does serve a purpose as far as my overall build and design goals. Plus the flexibility and expandability pays off in the long run. I had the time of my life planing and getting the build together, so everything worked out perfect in the end. I think the build is somewhat unique.

Thanks for the comments everyone, and I look forward to sharing my next build with you guys.

Oh, now it's much more adequate! [/irony]

Is cool anyways, but too over-kill ish. On the 790, the motherboard can stand almost anything, no matter the heat.

No such thing as overkill if done right, at least for me. And if you think that's overkill, wait to you see my next one

Hardware:

CPU: Q9650 4.25, 1.37v, 9x472 FSB
GPU: SLI EVGA GTX 280 756/1566/1248
MEM: GSkill DDR-3 1600, CAS 8 timings, 1888 Mem Speed, 2:1 divider
MB: EVGA 790i Ultra
HD: Seagate 250's in Raid 0
PSU: Corsair HX 1000

Cooling:

CPU Loop 1: EK Supreme, Twin TC PA 120.3, Twin D-5's
GPU Loop 2: EVGA Hydro FC blocks, Twin TC PA 120.3, Twin D-5's
Chipset Loop 3: BP NB/SB combo blocks, BP mosfet blocks, Single TC PA 120.3, Single DDC-3.2 XSPC top.

Controls:

Main Case: CyrstalFontz 635 USB fan controller
Rad Box: Sunbeam Rheobus EXTREME - 6 Channel 30 Watt Fan Controller 5.25"
Fans Main Case: All Yate Loon D12SM-12 x 8. Average RPM 975
Fans Rad Box: All Zalman ZM-F3 x 12. Average RPM 1100

Misc:

All BP fittings, except custom copper high flow elbows for rad interconnection in Rad Box
All Tubing Feser 1/2-3/4 UV Blue
2 White CCFL's, 2 UV Blue CCFL's
Sunbeam 4 port Molex Power Port x 2

Case:

Mountain Mods : Pinnacle 24 for main case
Mountial Mods : Custom Monacle 24 for Rad Box

That's pretty much everything.







Excuse the ragged power interconnects, they've been upgraded since these pics.



Separate AUX/Main power connects so I can fill and bleed without messing with the power to the main or disconnecting. Each pump can be turned off and on independently.



Shot of the top with fill ports.




Hope you enjoy. I'll create a build log when I upgrade the main side.

bloody hell thats amazing.

plus 1! very nice set up. i am impressed
