    Hello

    My name is Paul and I wanted to share with you all what I did in my new house.

    Idea was to change image of my Silverstone TJ10 and(as I change my hardware really often) build quiet cooling system for various configuration of components.

    I promise to upload some basics and photos of my progress.

    Stay tuned!:toast:

    well, Im not new here but since i switched companys I cant use my previous account

    As for this project:

    Looks:

    Since my case(TJ10) is silver and I have it for some time(its very good) i wanted to paint it black but keep "brushed aluminium facture" and that was my main porblem, than I ws shopping some things for my house and I came to see hyrdaulic pipes, silver and dirty black and i fall in love with this idea.

    lets start at the begining, how it looked in the begining:

    [​IMG]

    but i wanted the case to go in this dirty direction:

    [​IMG]

    also change this cool but incomplete setup to white and add blocks for other RAMs and power section:

    and ofcourse remove radiators and pump from within the case to separate room where it all can work ass loud as it needs. it alowes me to use faster fans, more efficient pump or two.

    I figure, if im going to do all this why not do more. My bedroom is like "L" shape and has 33 square meters :)
    I figure I can buy few more meters of tube and put it all in my concret flor. This way I have something like 4kW radiator in my flor:

    [​IMG]

    In total I have 44 meters x2 of tube in my flor with separate room for reservuar radiators and fans

    My work continues...
    cadaveca says thanks.

    looks sweet, but isn't it abit complicated to change hardware in that thing ,since you change hardware often?

    this isnt complete build, i id it only because i couldnt wait felt awake at night

    in the end i will have seperate connection to each water block

    things i change most often are CPU and GPU, sometimes mainboard, my RAM is the most pernament part :)

    Is all the cooling going to be in the same room. Another extreme watercooling piping job I read about....
    This guy had a big car radiator in his basement window, with a big car fan blowing out. He had three computers all piped and pumped to use that radiator. I remember he had great temps but sure looked like a lot of work for marginal gain. His main goal was to have a simplified watercooling for all his computers so he could easily upgrade.

    well, at peak of my LC adventure i had 3x140 2x140 2x120 and 1x120 rads and it worked good enought for 1-2 hours, and after that temps went higher and my room temp was making me uncomfortable, now i will have better cooling and constant room temperature because all heat will go to the flor and radiators that would heat up the air will be located elsewhere

    also im overclocking fan so lower tems are always welcome :)

    btw, i have my room painted and will try to set it up and running today

    So all the cooling is being done by cold concrete under hardwood floors? Did you put concrete over the tubing? Doesn't concrete expand?

    This is really cool. Best cooling solution ever.

    there is concrete over the tubes. i made 30mm dep hole and the tube was only 13mm so there is alot of concrete to take the heat. although outside is full summer and days are like 30+ with nights at almost 20oC so thats not good for me:)

    when all the work in my house will be done the "colling room" will be isolated

    im also thingking about freon, so far i didnt like the idea because of the noise, now i might just do this
