toolmaker03 ok, so anything over about 9.0LPM is too much for these koolance flow meters to handle for any prolonged period of time. I have destroyed two of them at this point so I will need to get a better flow meter if I want to test this rig right. rolleyes.gif

well live and learn this build has been a learning process. thumb.gif

so at some point I will need to install a better flow meter into this rig, but for now it runs great, and cool. I will have some temp pics up soon of the system at load. thumb.gif

well, I ended up putting a FX9590 CPU in this build, it is a 5Ghz processor. the last CPU started ticking, so I needed to replace it. this is a 6 year old system, that I have upgraded as needed over the years. this last set of upgrades to this build, have been the CPU, the GPU's, one radiator, and two D5 strong pumps. thumb.gif

I added a little more lighting and a fan controller for looks. tongue.gif

I do have a intel system that I am currently building a extreme cooling solution for.

cool and thanks for the info. thumb.gif

I think that I have had enough fun with this build for awhile. I do not see me doing anymore upgrades to this system for some time. biggrin.gif

at this point I can say that this is a internet computer, that is capable of playing games. tongue.gif

toolmaker03 ok so with this upgrade the GTX580 video cards where a little faster than the FX8350 CPU at 4Ghz. the new FX9590 is a 5Ghz CPU, I hope it can handle the GTX580 video cards. biggrin.gif

toolmaker03 ok, so I have everything back together, it's not filled yet because I still have to make sure every thing is tight.

toolmaker03 today I am draining the water loop, and installing the new parts. biggrin.gif
it may take a day or two before it is all back together. the system has been running for two weeks straight with no real issues. so the build works fine, it's just a matter of getting it to run a little better. thumb.gif

sli_shroom this has been quite the build

toolmaker03 ok so I went a got a furniture dolly that is the same size as this PC case, and it does make things a lot easier. I may just leave the build on the dolly? (or maybe not)

I have the GTX580 video cards out of my other build, and they are ready to install into this build. biggrin.gif

so, I now need to drain the loop remove the GTX480 video card and install the GTX580's. remove the parallel line from the two radiators and reconnect the parallel line to the Y fitting that will be installed before the radiators.

so, not to much work left to do on this build. thumb.gif
