hey guys so my motherboard has taken a crap on me, so i am thinking its now the perfect time to:
-
1. REMOVE 200mm fan on top and replace with 240mm RADDONE
-
2.WaterCool my GPU(both of them)(PAGE 3)(page 4 for EK SLI bridge)DONE
-
3.Upgrade CPU block (PAGE 3)DONE
-
4.Sleeve the cables RED,BLACK,WHITE. DONE WITH Extentions
-
5. Upgrade all Barbs to Compression Fittings(or at least all i could afford)DONE
-
6.Switch res to EK 250mm Cyclinder
-
7. Powder Coat the case the same color as its now, i just hate scratching the case all the timeDONE
-
8. Make All new cables for PSU(custom lenght and sleeved)

Here is some pictures of the break down and some other random pictures. for now.

I will try to get as much done before i leave to CES on Wed.

its actually a DD WaterBOX not torture rack, they are slightly different, the one i have can be fully enclosed just like a regular case.

i bought it of a fellow OCN member for only 80$, has a couple of scratches but a great thing to have in between projects

yes this never ending project hit my pockets pretty hard, but fortunately a couple of month ago i got a job that pays me what i wanted to get paid for a long time, so i have been buying all the things i never had when i was younger.
but if i was not married, u can trust me i would have quad sli and all
ahahahha

You want about as much as a large pea. The goal is so that when you later remove the heatsink you should see TIM covering most of the IHS is a layer that is so thin you can see right through it.

Also, how are you going to connect the two cards?

Hi,

Well if you put just a tenth of what was on that, To much.

That much would be good insulation.

As been stated should pretty much be transparent to the eye when
applied and compressed.
Alot of ways to apply but pea size is pretty much all you need.

I use the pea size method and then spread with a plastic sharp edge
object, credit card works good if nothing else available.


When done, smooth and just about transparent to the eye.
Clean up along edges when done so doesn't lap on the sides.
Do this with GPU cards also. New or used.

Works for me.
YMMV.

HTH

later

ahaha yeah i saw tht.

i was wondering does it really raise the temps if u put more tim on?

Some pictures before taking apart:













So on top instead of that big fan im going to cut our the plastik and sink in the 240mm rad, and get the same mesh and rap it the same way the fan is now, Should look pretty nice





Also thought i would share some pics of my new MOBo, that will be going under water later, because i need to run something for now, i hate laptops





And Now the fun part
GTX470 going under WATER








And for today, i thought i would share what im runing now while my case is getting chopeed

I believe the extensions would look even more awesome with black connectors as opposed to the whitish ones. Either way, looking good my friend!
