Hi. guys.
I'm S.korean newbie and this is my first thread in overclocknet
(and please understand my first language is not english)

I would like to introduce my system based on Corsair AIR540 case and Asus maximus V formula.


Basically I had system as below first,

CPU : intel i7 3770K (@4.7Ghz)
M/B :GA-Z77X-UP7
Ram: Corsair Dominator platimum (2400, 4*4G)
CPU cooler: NZXT X60
VGA: GTX780 2 way SLI

But the biggest problem was VGAs' noise and temp when it was running in full load.
Even the temp was 85~90C

So I decided to make full water cooling system especially for VGAs.

Here is my building.



My plan is based on ASUS Maximus V formula for using "Fusion Thermo".
This is very effective thermal plate and looks really great smile.gif



CPU waterblock-EK supremacy clean CSQ red (looks great and simple)




My case is very small but I wanted to put 2 thick radiators.
XSPC 360mm and 240mm model.



Test building. 2 radiators are perfectly fit in the case.



But I had to put fans in outside. (Corsair SP120)



More fans. I love red one!



And 1 more, I had to bend HDD guide. (I'm not using 3.5 HDD in front, because it looks very ugly.)




Fortunately 2 radiator and fitting, location fits perfectly.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98

Because I already had GTX780 reference model, I only bought EVGA hydro copper water jacket and backplate.
We can't buy in S.korea officially them, so I ordered from US.
Of course I replace the air cooler to water jacket by myself.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

Fittings and pipe, pump, reservoir, thermometer, drain pipe.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98

DIYed fan cable and distributors.



This case doesn't have any fan controller, so I added NZXT one.
Looks great and easy to use and control.
1st is actual fan thermo and pump RPM.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
Magnetic dust filter.
and it's ready to put water smile.gif

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 98

It's running and it's cool thumb.gif



This is my CPU's temp.



and this is my GPUs' temp. (It is really NICE!!)



This is my blueprint that I arranged.

Thank you for reading my thread. Koo

Wow, you really got just about everything that can be had out of that little case. Very cool.

Not that you need it, but I wonder if another 120mm fan on the inside of the 360 rad (looks like you'd only have room for one) would help get a little more out of that wide 360.

There's no room for it between VGA and rad, it's only 18~20mm.

There's no room for it between VGA and rad, it's only 18~20mm.

Looks like there might be room for one fan 120x120x25 on the inside, in the gap between the top most vga and the top mounted rad. I've heard that wide radiators benefit a lot from push/pull arrangements. I'm not sure how much of a difference it could make. There also are very slim 120mm fans that might even fit between the rad and the end of the cards.

You're temps looks great so it really isn't needed, was just a thought about how to possibly get even more out of that huge rad on the front.
