    That's pretty cool. Watch out though admins here don't mind the language unless you use it too much and pointlessly. On your title it's pretty pointless.

    Anyway, I can't wait to see the end result. Why do you have to tease us this way?!

    you could cut the bottom for a rad,, instead of the holes. A big open hole is better then little holes.

    lol, angle grinder FTW! I notice you have the same gloves as me, I've seen pictures of americans wearing them as well... funny how certain goods can become ubiquitous around the world.... good ol' made in china I guess. at the giant glove factory which is the pride of hubei province, turns out 8 million gloves a day, ... but i digress... cool paint job!

    Day 2. Mourning update

    Day 2.

    So we got a problem, my loop is going to be running distilled water which means i need either a kill coil or some PT Nuke -PHNl for distilled water loops.
    problem is i got the PT Nuke -Cu one for the mixed coolant ones.

    Does anyone know if the loop will be okay for a few weeks without the PT Nuke mixed in?

    Hopefully by then i can get some and just add it in.

    One other question, anyone else know who sells PT Nuke -PHN and ships to Canada? haha, i'm in quite the pickle.



    first here's an update on the hole for the bottom rad, they're bigger than the previous pic:

    doesn't matter the rad will be on top of it. why pay 40$ = 50$ can for something you wont even see.

    need opinions! / help!

    alright need some help here. not sure if my loop with the cpu shuold go with the nb and sb and mosfets sink. heres my options:

    loop1: CPU - i7 920 WC HK 3.0 LT + ek classified WB, cools mosfets, NB & SB + 360 rad

    loop2: GPU - 4870x2 DangerDen WB + 240 rad

    Question:


    Is that to much heat for the CPU loop?

    Should i paid the NB, SB, Mosfets with the GPU loop and keep the cpu by itself?
    If so will that 240 rad be enough for those two?


    LOOP 1:

    Hah, so I'm not alone with cleaning a HK block with a toothbrush. So you really used ketchup? I used alcohol and... toothpaste :D That + very hot water = pretty clean block + free sinuses and a high due to the essences in the toothpaste lol.

    Nice progress deadlyrhythm,

    Personnally speaking,2 loops are an excellent idea and having enough room in my case, it's probably the way I would go also.

    Might I make a few sugestions though? The types of pumps you are using add a few degrees of heat to your loop and don't forget, gravity is your friend in such arrangements so my recommendation for your loops would be:

    Loop 1: Res->Pump->360 rad->cpu->res. Gravity is your friend but air bubbles aren't so water should always enter a WC block at the lowest entry point and exit from the highest possible exit.

    Loop 2: Res->Pump->GTX240 rad->NB->Gpu->res.

    My 2 cents

    Good luck with your project, looks great so far

    No problem bro. But before you start cutting up that expensive tubing, maybe you should wait until someone else confirms what I sugested. Maybe someone else may have a better idea... :toast:

    loosenut has the flow right,, you could also come out of the MB block & go into a single 120 or 140 rad at the back then into the GPU.
