First Post!

Gonna start off with my current build log. So my system is aging and i'm ready to finally watercool it and get that extra bit of overclocking out of my old system.
This system is on 24/7 running BOINC/WCG with the GPU as well, want my processor to be stable and cool over 4GHZ+ so there will be some more heavy overclocking involved.

Rig specs are as follows:

Mountain-Mods UFO
Intel i7-870
AMD HD5970
16gb G-Skill DDR3 1600
EVGA p55 Micro
60 GB Mushkin Callisto
Mixed Magnetic Drives
Corsair AX750 PSU

Current Water Equipment:
Swiftech 655
2x Thermochill PA120.3 (25mm Spacing)
EK(before ****ty manufacturing) HD5970 Block
Bitspower Summit EF CPU Block
Bitspower Matte black 1/2"ID Barbs

Still need to purchase:
Reservoir or pump top
Tubing
Bitspower G3/8-G1/4 Adapters

Current plans are to strip the case and plasti-dip it matte white.

The whole point of using plasti-dip is that its removable, if i want to go back to the gloss black all i have to do is peel back one side and it looks good as new.

Pretty big update today! my system is actually up and running for the sake of WCG so no pictures of the case and everything. We will get there soon enough!

I still need to figure out how to properly sleeve cables and work on my soldering skills to make these fan connectors work to my advantage without having to use those silly extenders. Definitely will be one of the next things i do for this build. Also debating on whether to change around the top panel or keep it the same, regardless new windows will be ordered for the side panels. And how they will be mounted is still up for debate as well, maybe some good ol' double sided tape will do me well!

Took the air cooler off of the 5970.
