Current State of Rig: Final Pics in Post 2
450

This is my first time water cooling and I am very excited!!! I built my first rig about of year ago and I had no idea what I was doing (Section devoted to rig before now). But now with the help from some friends I have grown and become much happier with my rig. I will be doing some slight modding to fit in the water cooling and it will go by very fast... once I start that is biggrin.gif There will be much insperation from ekg84's rig and a bit from axipher as well.

ok so I had a few hiccups along the way... Two leaks... The first one came from the bottom of my res it was a quick and easy fix because I just had to tighten it better tongue.gif
The second one though was a bit more of a problem because (no pictures taken frown.gif ) at the top of my gpu block where I wanted to put one of my fittings the PCB got in the way... I solved this by using a spacer that comes with the block. I was able to still get the fitting on to the block along with the compression part of the fitting as well. Little did I know that it would later leak thumbsdownsmileyanim.gifdoh.gif besides that I was able to cram all my cables out of sight and here is the finished product thumb.gif

And that's all folks!!! For now tongue.gif I should have a video or two coming of the sound of bubbles when I was bleeding the loop and possibly a night time video of the loop. I hope that I will be able to take my rig over to a friends house and get him to make a custom video for it as well thumb.gif
If you have any questions or comments please post them smile.gif

Rig History:

So I built my first rig about a year ago with some help from a friend. He was not into the looks of a rig. Then I found OCN and my whole world changed biggrin.gif Suddenly I had to make changes. I learnt how to take pictures of rigs, cable management, and that a stock cooler was just sad.

Phase 1 of Rig building: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Then I met OCN and changed things up a bit: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

From here I got my self a H50: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
700

Then I got a new GPU when I found out my HD 5750 was crap... (thought it was a godly card) (And I learnt how to use a real camera smile.gif ) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

New PSU <3 No more CPU Power Cable going across mobo!!!! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

Then I found out about Matx rigs, and SSD's and needless to say my pockets weren't happy about it... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

Got rid of my H50 for a Noctua NH-C14 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

And that brings us to today where I am now diving into the world of water cooling!!!

Your Core 1000 build looks so clean; I'm a bit jealous biggrin.gif
I might as well try something on my Core 1000, but now isn't the time unfortunately.

Yup that is exactly right! 240 going in on the front, smoked acrylic as a side panel, matte acrylic for the front like ekg84's Core 3000 mod. Also gonna include the PSU cover that he made as well.

Thanks for looking guys biggrin.gif
