Nice - I'm going to have to take a look at your build log - do you have one?

I have never done watercooling but I will only attempt it once I have used my computer for a year two.

How much have you overclocked by? I would like to add it to the list of overclocking achievements for the board if that is ok with you.

I'm such a dummy - a case of working too hard today. I'm glad I have a holiday tomorrow. Got the link - it's in your sig smile.gif

I really like the acrylic tubes. How did you do the bends? And how long did it take to conquer that method? wink.gif
Also as you can't squeeze the tubes anymore, how hard is it to bleed?

Haswell gets hot too quickly. What temps you get at load (@ ambient temp)?

Haswell gets hot too quickly. What temps you get at load (@ ambient temp)?

The tube bending takes a lot of patience and practice. There are a few guides on youtube. Just search primochill acrylic (sorry, cant link because youtube is blocked at work). I had purchased some tubes from TAP plastics to practice on before doing it on the color tubes (Primochill).

You just have to find the right tight bend form. I basically used a PVC pipe connector to get the bend I want and used a t-square to ensure they bends are 90 degrees.

Bleeding is actually easier than regular tubing. I think its because the tubes are rigid and the bubbles just pass through like nothing. I'd done builds with regular tubing and the rigids are 10x easier to bleed.

Haswell does heat up fast because of the glue intel uses on their IHC, which is why I delidded. My temps are low to mid 70s at around 1.4v, which is really good. Without a delid, expect 90s with just 1.2ish volts.

4.6Ghz?

Is that a delid? Doh..I got ninja'd

Well I was convincing myself that there was no way I would delid, but I begin to change my mind...

I'll aim for 4.5GHz...crossing fingers

Great setups I see there...I dig the red PSU I thought it was an ROG PSU for a sec lol!
