New Radiator and Mount!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
After getting some feedback from some other OCN members, I decided to add another rad and res to my loop. I only had 2 x 5.25" bays free in the front of my case and one of my primary requirements in my system is to keep all cooling components internal.

So here is what I came up with (less the fan screws as I need to take a trip to the hardware store):



The parts are as follows:
  • Black Ice Xtreme 120 Radiator - $69.95
  • 7mm gasket - $4.50
  • Scythe Kaze-Jyuni Slip Stream 120x12mm (2000 RPM) fan -$10.99
  • Scythe Bay Rafter (modified for better air flow) - $7.99
  • Barbs - recycled (new O-rings) - $0.00
  • IandH StealthRes Deluxe 225 - $62.95 (not pictured)

Hopefully I will get to install on Saturday. I will post some pics when everything is said and done. I am also upgrading to 1/2" ID Tygon black tubing and replacing all of my 3/8" ID barbs with 1/2".

While I am not planning on overclocking much farther than what I already have, I am hoping that my temps come down a bit.

Installed the new radiator and reservoir... and wow, what a difference. I am seeing a big difference in the GPU temps. I will search for a before benchmark and post an after. Also, pics to follow.

I stayed up all night working on re-tubing the entire system, and I am pooped. Overall, I am very happy. I still have some bubbles, so I am gonna let her run until they are through. I also have some cable management to take care of after I am 100% sure there are no leaks.

I've got two internal 240mm rads in my 690 II Advanced.

Tempted to install a 120mm rad on the rear of the case (inside of course, not externally) - i got the room so why not.

Total overkill but it's cooling both GPU and CPU.
