Lol Anything else I can cool on this? In case somebody notices the springs on the CPU block are completely compressed because its naked mounted and sits directly on the standoffs





Updated pics of it all finished

If only that worked as advertised. I've read some bad things about that PSU. I'd be totally down for a high powered watercooled PSU to silence an entire PC but they're just not that great.

1250W OCZ. Plus I just finished sleeving it yesterday. I'll put another fan in it and leave it as is.

That water chiller is sexy. I definitely have the aqauero controller sitting in my cart lol. Oh and yes I want a water cooled PSU also...mine never ever makes a sound but it radiates a ton of heat into my case.

Do those chillers work pretty good?

True. Thing weighs a ton...hopefully the standoffs are up for the challenge.

It's looking like a nice build, I am impressed with how neat you have kept the tubing round the board.
Thanks...I was going to use the phobya 180 degree sli connector to connect the vrm blocks at the corner but I couldn't wait till Monday...my case should be here today so I mite actually get to use it tomorrow...down time sucks lol...

I wonder how that block is mounted to the chip in that pic...does thermal glue hold that well?

I really wanted to do the solid copper this time around but just couldn't find the bawls to invest the $...I think I'll do acrylic tube next time which will get me the fittings I need...eventually I'll try the copper though...it definitely makes it look sexy

There are blocks for hdd too:

If you have a DDC pump, you can mod a ramblock to cool it (a'la Slinky's monster).

A5 controller (as mentioned before) has a block.

Besides the psu, which is an extremely bad idea and I hear the Koolance unit sucks, that does it for wc. It can get addicting to the point you wanna slap as many blocks as possible

. I currently have nine blocks in my rig (cpu, 4x gpu, 2x ram, & 2x mb).

Glad to see you have 2 90 degree fittings from VRM to CPU block, I thought I was an idiot for doing that on my setup.

It was @cpachris in his Big Budget Boomer Box. Massive amount of win in that build.
