Another evening with little to do, so decided to test the pump/block - I had it shipped from the US and it is the very last thing I need to test to make sure I dont have to RMA anything mid-building.

700

Yay for ghetto res-holder! It worked like a charm though. Pump did the usual *Swiiiiiiiiiish* and for a minute it reminded me of opening a soda (Which I then went for - Damn you pump for making me crave sugary things!) - Passed the test with flying colours.

Hehe - good one with the res-holder....

I will probably get the same RAM as you have, will work really well with the APD2 and space-restrictions smile.gif

Keeping an eye out, and my new radiator should be delivered on Tue or Wed...

Br,
Phillip

The user mrbean_phillip over at Overclockers.com.au is at it again!

This time he discovered that since the Prodigy does not come with a cutout for backplates, there COULD be a minor problem with some coolers and waterblocks.

Fear not! Yet again he comes through with a photo-guide on where to cut with your Dremel in order to make your backplate fit!

http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1037630&page=4

Thanks again Mrbean_Phillip, as I already mentioned in your thread I will have to pop down to the hardware store on monday to get even more Dremel cutting-discs - PSU-Cage mod, Backplate mod, Window cutout and the radiator mod I have on my mind ... starting to wonder how much of the original Prodigy will be left *Grins*

You're welcome, Gomi smile.gif

Thanx for the reminder, I gotta get more metal cutting-disks for my Dremel too, still have the Fractal Array R2 NAS to modify!

But, just awaiting the arrival of the new Nexxxos Rad, and some nice Gentle Typhoon fans, and we can get the Prodigy out of the way, the Wife is getting impatient biggrin.gif

Have a good one, and I will check in a bit later again!

According to the email I got from Caseking.de, where I pre-ordered the case, they are getting and shipping out the cases the 5th. Should get it the 6th - Expect some major updates from that date.

From now and until then the updates will consist of the GTX 670 and the installation of the block. Looking forward to this, cant wait to see how the heatkiller looks on the Reference GTX 670.

Still doing some design in Google Sketchup - Will update and progress goes along smile.gif

The EVGA GTX 670 card will be here tomorrow!

5 minutes later after I got told about the GPU, there was an update on Watercool.de - Pictures of their HEATKILLER® GPU-X³ GTX 670. These are FRESH of the machine and are getting shipped aswell - So I will have the Reference 670 under water this weekend smile.gif

Hopefully the case will arrive Friday, making next weekend a very very busy one indeed.

Pictures of the block and block + GPU:

Short reference card - No HDD-bay = Loads of room infront for the 200mm radiator wink.gif

I'm going to have to follow you on this build. I'm planning on a build with that exact board and GPU with a plan to water cool it. Would love to see what you end up with thumbsupsmiley.png
