I began to modify the bottom of my 800d to fit a 240 radiator.

Removing the HDD case was a pain!

bilde26.jpg

I do not have the 240 radiator yet, so i had to use my 360 to make some blueprint from it.

bilde24.jpg

bilde25.jpg

I did mask the area with tape to make the markings easier to see and not damaging the rest of the case when drilling and cutting.

bilde28.jpg

Measurements are done and ready for the jigsaw.

bilde29.jpg

I did also finish lapping my i7 930 CPU.

I had only 600 grit by hand. so i did only use this. it went pretty well.

MIPS mobo cooler arrived:

At last! Mobo received.

Lapped CPU mounted

IMG_0257.jpg

IMG_0256.jpg

removed the heatsink for using the mips watercooled block.

IMG_0261.jpg

applied thermal paste and thermal pads.

IMG_0258.jpg

IMG_0261.jpg

Seems like a good spread

IMG_0259.jpg

Cut the case for the 240 radiator that is coming soon.

IMG_0255.jpg

When applying the MIPS block, ALOT of thermal pads were missing. so i had to use over the original pads. Next time i will not buy MIPS. I will then go for EK.

HDDs

IMG_0272.jpg

Cable management

IMG_0271.jpg

Everything mounted.

IMG_3931.jpg

IMG_3933.jpg

IMG_3942.jpg

IMG_3941.jpg

IMG_3938.jpg

I used destiled water and silver coil.

IMG_0264.jpg

But i am thinking about when i get this 240 radiator. Im leaning more on single loop with dual laing mcp655 with bitspower block and assembly. What do you think?

Or is a double_loop best?

Looks good. I like the pump dress kit. If you sleeve your wires it'll make it look even better,

Yes, that spread is pretty good. But I'd say your CPU block is convex. Lap that too biggrin.gif
