    And now is time for revision 4!!

    My obsession of quiet forced me to modernize LC system to keep low temps after OC Core i7 and GTX580 under heavy load, quietly of course.‚ÄčThus born idea for new revision.
    Revision of system which should cool Core i7 and SLI, which should look nice and clean.

    Project and parts list is ready, all parts are on the way to me.
    Part of it is already delivered.

    I know you like pictures so no more talking...

    Intel Core i7 2600K @4,7Ghz

    2x EVGA GeForce GTX 680+ 4GB Backplate
    OCZ Vertex 2 180GB
    Samsung HD103SJ
    4x ST2000DL003 in Lian Li EX-503
    Seasonic Platinum SS-1000XP
    Lian Li PC-V2120X
    Dell AW2310 & nVidia 3D Vision

    LC parts:
    EK-Supreme HF
    EK-FB ASUS Max4 Extreme
    Bitspower Galaxy Freezer DIMM4
    2x Koolance VID-NX680
    MO-RA3 4x180 LT
    2x Swiftech MCP35X

    Subbed too... nice.

    Funny, one part peaked my curiosity - the articulating Koolance fitting.

    It's external radiator.
    But later I will think about case for it or how to mount it to current PC case...

    Meantime I prepared new SLI bridge.

    Typical bronze flexible bridge disgusts me.

    Hey!

    The work began.

    Came rest of parts, cables (except a few powering ones) so there is no reason to wait ...

    Among other things,

    [​IMG]

    Until then I started with one GPU,

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and installation of a new reservoir in the housing.
    Photos of this soon, because I have to drill through the midplate ... :]
