Very nicely done, especially for your first rigid. Did you toss many tubes? Like in: missbending.

But really... Stop it!
The more I look at those rigid builds the harder it is for me to not go for it.

It will be so expensive just for the looks. Fittings for example are already very expensive. I saw a Bitspower 45 degree rotary Deluxe white for €21 doh.gif
Agree. Clear looks very nice.

I currently have Mayhem red (I know, red is horrid for the block) in my soft loop.
First time using dye here. It was cool and all but I will most likely go back to either clear or colored tubing.

As a matter of fact:
Any tips on color for my upcoming build?
I plan to change to a Phanteks Primo and will be using the same parts as I have now, except changing my 140.1 to either a 140.2 or 140.3. Want to place my reservoir/pump combo back into the case next to my gpu (wouldn't fit in the 650D). UT60 360 will be on the bottom and the new rad in the top.

Yeah, its kinda too much. Right?

Apart from that, I like it.

The only tube I had to redo was the one from the top rad to the inlet on the CPU block. It was really close the first time but I am such a perfectionist it had to be perfect. I did was get some extra tube and practiced a bit before doing the actual bends!

That was my though. lachen.gif

I see myself tossing out 30% or something because 1mm difference is not acceptable.
Then again, I think most of us are perfectionists here. I mean.... look at the builds. biggrin.gif

But.
Any thought on tubing choice based on the colors of my parts.
Do note that I will probably upgrade to Skylake in the future with a Hero board (so red accents will stay in the build).

I can still decide which color Primo to get though.
Leaning towards this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Or classic black/white: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Currently I think I will go with black or red tubing.
Thoughts?

Are you running the return line through the top of the reservoir but without an extender tube inside? Air alert.
Nah, its just the pics fooling you. Pump inlet is the tube from the graphics card. Pump outlet is facing the mid-wall and feeding the tube towards the 360 rad. Drain valve also hidden behind the pump via a tube to the other compartment smile.gif

Mentioning the bends, I think i binned over 10 sections and I´m still not perfectly happy lol. Ran out of tube, I guess I´ll have to redo some of the tubes next time my loop is down for maintenance haha!

I like the Primochill black tubing as well. If I had to choose any other color besides clear it would be black. I used a combination of BitsPower and Primochill fittings. I already had several of the BitsPower fittings from the soft tubing.

I've considered it. But I'd like to maybe buy a second/space case. Or, even easier, just switch cases to anything like a Phanteks Evolv ITX, Fractal Design Nano S, NZXT Manta, or even a Corsair 250D.

You wouldn't need to mod anything this way and you'll have fresh air going in.
I could possibly use that on the reservoir and extend it out slightly. But then I'd need a 92mm, likely 92mm x 15mm, and the only one I know of is the Noctua one which is not going to match or look to nice in there. tongue.gif

EDIT: It might not work with my current reservoir due to the offset of the brackets.

In reality the 950 is so fast that even if it does thermal throttle, it will still out perform standard sata ssds. I own one, and the only time I have run into thermal issues is while benchmarking it. The 512G 950 Pro is one of my most cherished components and is a great investment if you are looking to upgrade in my opinion.

I love your build and have always wanted to do a mini watercooled build. Kudos for making it look and work so well. I think your temps, while high for a large build, are exceptional for such a beautifully small build like that. thumb.gif
Well, thanks. That's also reassuring to hear. Perhaps I'll do something like get the 950 Pro, and maybe one or two more of my 730 series SSD's.

I was getting similar temps with about the same heat output to the loop with a single 120mm 30mm thick koolance rad and one scythe GT 1850rpm fan in push exhausting out the front of an SG05 back in the day. The GT's aren't silent at full speed but their tone is very easy to ignore, and i'm picky most of the time.

Edit: If you get desperate and don't mind spoiling the look somewhat you can fit 280mm rads on top of the roof of the ncase, I have a Koolance one on top of mine.

I'd like to avoid an external radiator and fan set up for the dust factor of it. I did ponder it for a while. I also used an EK PE 240 (240mm x 38mm) and my temperatures were actually not any different with that radiator. I think it was chocking the air even more so, or adding to the "heatsoak" factor. I really shouldn't be worrying about it though.

EDIT: I've also considered doing a radiator on the far side of the case, the motherboard panel side.

EDIT: I've also considered doing a radiator on the far side of the case, the motherboard panel side.

I actually moved to a bigger case then moved back, not many cases give you the footprint of the ncase M1 while being able to house high end components and watercooling.

With mine I have the sfx psu mounted with a steel adapter to the atx bracket, which adds alot of rigidity to the case. I have the pump+res mounted to the back 92mm grill slots on the inside, leaving me room for two bottom scythe GT's at 5v which will be a filtered intake. I use the two holes in the back of the case with some bulkhead fittings to run tubes out to the radiator on top. The top rad has fans mounted above it in pull so air is encouraged to exit through the top of the ncase, and any dust builds up on the rad fins in an area you can't really see.

The rad is suspended above the case by undesigns 140mm brackets with some plastic spacers I had from old EK blocks, and the bracket is zip tied through holes in the top panel rather then screwed down so it doesn't scratch it. The size and position of the rad is such that I can have access to the retaining screw for the top panel and have plenty of clearance for optical disks to slide out the top when I eventually get a blueray burner for it.

These aren't great photo's but I don't have great photo setup. My specs are in my sig, I love this rig but I'm going to have to replace my pump soon since it is somewhat broken and is much too loud.





I know that the copper isn't perfect but I like the look that it gets when you polish it and then let in oxidize and react to the oils that my hands leave on it.

Hey what case is that hanging on your wall?
