The Journey Begins

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just ordered Swiftech's H20-320 Edge Water Cooling Kit from Jab-Tech.

Haven't informed my better half… yet. What she doesn't know won't hurt her (or me, for that matter ).


If I'm lucky, she'll remain fast asleep as the FedEx man shows up to deliver the goods. If not, you guys may not hear from me for a while, as my "home away from home" (read: doghouse) is not currently equipped with InterWeb access.


With that, I would hope that some of you here might be willing to give me a few pointers, as this will be my very first exposure to mixing extreme humidity with quality electronics. Aside from praying to God Almighty that I do not short-circuit my beloved EVGA mobo an' catch the house on fire, I'm hopeful that you guys might lend me your expertise in helping me to slam this puppy into my rig with little fanfare.


Any input, advice, and/or words of encouragement would be severely appreciated.

with those kits you have to have the rad in a position with the stop fittings on the rad facing upwards, this is so you can fill / bleed the system easily. Also as always use distilled water in the loop. and as its your first time set the loop up out of the case just so you have put together the loop before u put it into the rig (also leak test ect ). but yeah any other Qs ask

She will find out one day, one way or other. And be prepared. Your better half is more important than your beloved EVGA mobo. Trust me.....LOL

And this journey is, for most people, a one-way trip. Once you started it, you cannot return to air cooling. My V8 is now sitting in its original package....LOL
