    About this build

    MB : ASUS Crosshair V Formula Water block EK Crosshair
    GPU: 2X EVGA 480 Water block Danger Den
    Ram: Gskill G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB
    Rad: Phobya G-Changer 360

    PS : CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX1200

    This is my first water cooled build mod of ANY sort, I have planned this out and carefully selected every piece for the best results. it's taken a good 4 months for purchasing and 1 month for modding building.
    I started with a Haf X PC case and had it striped and nickle plated.
    The vid water blocks are from Danger den and the MB and CPU blocks are from EK bought through Dazmode here in Toronto.
    The manifolds are build by me using a pex style manifold.

    I went this route b/c I wanted each component to have cool water and not have it add heat every stage. The manifold is fed via 2 1/2" ins to equal pressure and flow concerns. They also have brass ball valves to help regulate flow if needed. Also and easy way to lock off part of the system IF components need to be replaced.

    If you have any questions about this please ask :)
    I look forward to modding the PC that this one is replacing :)

    Very awesome looking! I'd build something similar if I had the money/skill to do such a thing!
