    Idle mean nothing.

    Run ~10pass LinX with MAX mem used.

    Monitor with Coretemp on each 4 core.

    About the only other thing I will do is get some compression fittings for the cooling system
    and maybe reroute the tubing and put in a fill and drain port.

    this is the best case for WC..one of my choice and my maybe my next case..obsidian..sweet clean build..sleevin' all wires is really a pain in the ass..like what i did to my rig, it took a lot of time and effort. i think yer next upgrade will be the rad..make it a 360 rad and put it at the top.. 9/10 bro.. :)

    Thanks friend for your vote and your suggestions! Everyone seems to think I need a 360 rad. I suppose I will need to get one.

    Nice

    I really like this case, the thing that stands out most to me is the color of the liquid. What is this?? Also, for everybody that is oohing and ahhing over the wire sleeving. Those are extensions that you can buy from frozencpu.com. They are pre-made and you just plug them up in between the board and the actual connector.

    Thanks for the compliments. The liquid is Feser Blue readily available on the net.
    And for your information I sleeved every wire myself. You don't have to ooh and ahh
    at it but it's a fact. I wouldn't have that cheap ass looking shit from frozencpu.
    Also I have bought a new Silverstone Strider 1000 watt full modular psu. I have sleeved
    the entire thing in black and UV green. Also put UV green fluid in the cooling system, and
    added UV lights. I will be posting pics as soon as I am completely done.

    Actually "that chip ass shit from frozencpu" looks exactly like the sleeving job you did. Definitely kudos to you for the time involved with that project. I can only imagine.

    On the blue build on the 24 pin I put 4 wires per sleeve. In hindsight that wasn't the right move. On the new build I put one wire per sleeve. Here is a pic of it as it sits right now.

    Very very very nice, so you uncrimp every pin 1 by 1 and sleeve it then crimp it back into that molex connector?

    They have a tool that you stick in the plug that will release the pin from the plug. As for the
    24 pin it was too short for my case. So I did put all new black wires and recripmed them all
    and then sleeved it. Takes some patience but it goes fast once you get the hang of it. Here
    are the tools I used.

    http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve/sleeve-kits- -tools/sleeve-tools.htm

    Got the sleeve from the same place in Germany. I have never seen this good of quality
    anywhere in the states.

    Hmm, that's good to know, I just had to upgrade PSUs last week to the Antec TruePower Quattro 1200, which is red/black in color and it matches the rest of my color scheme in my case. I might be contacting you more in the future to get advice on this, it looks like you know what you are doing. So when you made the wires longer did you solder them back together or just crimp them?

    I crimped them with a great little crimper I got at the same place.

    http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-crimping/mdpc-crimping-tool.htm

    They have the crimper and the contacts. If you order from them I would suggest getting
    plenty of everything because the shipping ain't cheap.

    Yea I was just checking out that crimper, it looks comparible to one up at microcenter, but this place seems to carry a more solid inventory of the stuff I will need. Thanks for the link brother.
