    That's right! Freeman's Box is finally going under water. This is a simple log where I can keep track of my progress in water cooling my cpu and eventually future cards/ board. All parts were purchased used from my friends here @ TPU and I would like to thank johnnyfive for the majority of the goods. My goal from this liquid build is too reach 3.8Ghz on my Phenom II X4 920:)


    Now lets start with the hardware:

    Koolance 2x140 Radiator

    XSPC RX120 Radiator

    BitsPower Compression fittings

    Swiftech Apogee XT Block

    EK DCP 4.0 Res/ MCP 4.0 Pump Combo


    [​IMG]

    This is a basic idea of the radiator placement, The 2x140 Koolance will be mounted on top and the RX120 will be in a push/push config mounted in the middle front drive bays.

    [​IMG]

    I will be using a tubing size of 7/16 ID, 5/8 OD and running distilled +PT Nuke. The color will be either Black, Orange, or both...I have not decided yet.:eek: However I have some extra clear tubing that I will be using for leak tests.

    The before picture:

    I will be stripping my rig down right now....updates will soon fellow.:toast:

    The breakdown...

    [​IMG]

    I gotta drill some extra holes to mount the Koolance rad up top, Nzxt only provided holes for 120mm dual rads.

    Super Duper! I hope you do go with both orange and black. You don't see many multiple color tube setups, and the ones out there look fantastic.

    Do you have everything running on your mobo box? Whenever I tear my rig down, half the time is spent keeping it piecemealed together so I can still game and visit TPU:)

    You know what...your right MT, I should use both orange and black colors. I am running the other rig (cruncher), it is really nice to have a fully built 2nd rig in the same room.:cool:

    Scribed. Nice to see a Half Life 2 case mod, it could easily make one of the best crazy and unique case mods on the interweb! Thats a nice and sexy rig you've got, keep it up. Wanna see the end product soon though!

    Updates:

    I have mounted the 140mm rad on the top and that was really tricky due to my lack of hardware and making sure I had the clearance to keep the ram clips accessible on my board. Unfortunately a small portion of the rad will not get airflow, so I hope this will not be a large problem? if so maybe I will replace it with a 120.2 rad.

    Have any of your guys ever saved those weird random pieces of metal thinking...hmmm I could use this one day, but it never happens? well today it did! (see smiley)

    I'm not using any of that uv coolant junk sorry, I will be running distilled water plus PT Nuke. I also decided to use gloss Black and uv Orange tubing.

    pretty nice so far ... I dont think the little bit of blockage will effect anything seriously so you should be good to go.

    As you can see, there is enough room for me to access the ram clips. (yes my cats hair is everywhere:laugh:)
