    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    Intel i5 2500K
    MSI Z77A-G45 Motherboard
    4GB Corsair XMS3
    eVGA GTX 760
    256GB Sandisk SSD
    2TB Western Digital
    Corsair AX760W PSU
    Cooler Master HAF
    Laing DDC 2 with Petras Top
    EK Supreme CPU
    Swiftech MCR-320QP Radiator

    Rebuilt this in the last couple weeks. Reinstalled water cooling after not running it for a few years. Tried to go for a super simple, compact, loop.

    In all, about 2 feet of tubing for the CPU loop.

    Very pleased with how everything turned out, and this is the first time I've managed to have a completely internal water cooling loop. Previous rigs had a rear mounted external radiator.

    Let me know what you think. :)

    Not a complete watercooling system...you have no water on GPU .... just a simple water CPU cooler !
    Still a nice clean system.... good basic gaming PC ! Would beef up some of the components tho.... at least memory and add another 760 .... still nice .... good job ! :)

    Oh come on now, it's a little more than a simple water CPU cooler. I'd expect that if I just put in an All-in-one cooler, but an actual custom loop?

    Problem is that if I did put the gpu under water cooling I'd like a full cover block to make my life easy.
    Unfortunately this is not a reference GTX760, for which no coolers were actually made, though GTX670 blocks will fit reference models. So for now, I'll stick with the silent and massive ACX cooler the card came with.

    I have another 4gb of XMS3 in the mail now, just waiting for them to arrive.

    And I don't have a real need for more performance that the Single 760, so for now, SLi is a little out of my price range and need.

    Thanks for the kind remarks though!

    Hey, I think it looks great. Awesome job on the water cooling loop. It looks fantastic if you ask me! UK does make a water block for your GTX 760, however by the time you euro it, and ship it, might as well upgrade :).
