Before anything, I want to give a few shout outs.

  • kyismaster, we talked a lot on skype/steam with him helping me choose products, and giving me the what's what of watercooling, as well as some ideas. A lot of this was done because of the help he gave me breaking into watercooling.
  • Performance-PC's.com and their forum rep PhillyD. Their prices among the discount they have set up for us OCN members saved me quite a lot of money and headaches. Phill is an awesome guy, responds to messages the moment he can and did a lot of checking into stock for me. Awesome company!
  • My wallet.....for letting me abuse it.
  • NZXT's customer service. I've had good dealings with other customer service reps, but NOTHING like what NZXT displayed for me. I'm still trying to get over the fact this is a professional company and I was treated like a friend, not just some random customer.




The name: Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from Latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. In the Roman era, copper was principally mined on Cyprus, hence the origin of the name of the metal as сyprium (metal of Cyprus), later shortened to сuprum.

The System:
  • Gigabyte 990FX-UD3
  • AMD 8350 @ 5GHz
  • Sapphire 7950 @ 1230/1800
  • Samsung MV-3V4G3D/US 2x4GB (MIRACLE MEMORY)
  • Samsung 830 128GB + 4 other HDD's for storage
  • Seasonic X750 Power Supply
  • NZXT Switch 810 Gloss Black

Watercooling:
  • XSPC X20 750 Pump/Res Combo
  • XSPC RS 360mm Radiator
  • Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 120mm Radiator
  • XSPC Raystorm CPU Block
  • Swiftech Komodo 7950 Full Block
  • Alphacool Copper 3/8 - 1/2 compression fittings
  • Koolance QD3 Quick Disconnect Fittings
  • Primochill Advanced LRT Black Onyx Hosing
  • XSPC Xinruilian 120mm 1650 RPM Fans
  • Monsoon Magic Silver Bullet


Updated system with pictures:
  1. New main system components.
  2. XSPC Kit and Seasonic PSU installation
  3. Some more stuff I'm adding
  4. Watercooling loop done with the help of GI Joe

Anyone here have experience with the Heatkiller GPU-X³ 79X0 from EK? I'm getting a 7950 and going to put it under water.

Decided I'm going to use the NZXT Switch 810 instead <3

No rivets, just screws so everything is modular.

But it's been a pain in the ass for him to work on. The copper bends require a lot of work and preparation and re-doing to get everything just right.

Just making sure you know what you're getting into smile.gif

As I said, I've got the maintenance department at the company I work for that knows how to bend pipe. He's going to be helping me.
