Hey I don't blame you, that's an awesome setup you've got there.
Then you haven't used straight distilled water. It outperforms all of the fancy coolants and additives.
you mean Distilled and Deionized water don't you Wile E we can't have it shortin out anything if it leaks now can we
Nope. Just plain distilled water. I've had mine leak with no issues. Distilled water is a terrible conductor. It's the impurities that conduct electricity.

Only complaint about this build is the Asus 5770. It was only $130 after rebate but probably has the worst cooling design of any 5770 and barely overclocks. I should have waited for a Hawk promo
Strange, I have that same 5770 and it cools just fine. I haven't bothered to OC it yet thou, as my X2 is the thing holding it back...
+1 Wile E is a part time scientist nights at the local community college.
He is 100% correct though.
any chance for a front shot of that case? looks nice
sorry, should have really added UV coolant, i have used distilled and you are correct. i just like my fancy liquid.
all taken from my nokia n900
after these post i'm not sure if i should add UV dye in my loop or just use distilled water with some Liquid utopia or something like it.
i think anything that you put in the water is too messy, clean water is nicer, and easier to handle, but thats just me
use colored tubes instead
nice dude, i have the same motherboard...
what board there is like 3-4 different on this page alone haha
I was about to be like wtf with the area code.....then I realized you arn't state side.
I also got some stuff from the big brown truck, but they didn't want to leave them.
the one that nexus have...hehehe
So I break open this Thermaltake V3 case. I tear it down to its minimal and notice something: This thing bears a lot of resemblance to some other case I've seen before. I've got 2 HEC Blitz cases and start noticing a few things about the Thermaltake case in common:
Uses the exact same feet
PCI panels comes off the same way
There are two panels that are reusable
Psu filter is attached to the case the same
Motherboard backing plate is exactly the same
After doing some thinking I remember this HEC case. On their site all naked like.
I'm pretty sure the V3 is that HEC case with Thermaltake's front panel and they moved the power switch and front panel ports around. Even the tooless parts are the same.
While I don't have that HEC case, I'd be surprised if it wasn't the same thing. Too close to be chance. Not to mention a lot of similar designs in these two Blitz cases I have.
ive seen that alot, many manufactures does that,
but its still funny and im always like.....wtf is this
It's this case from newegg...was only $40 with a combo deal I think.
would anyone buy my 800d if i put it on sale? i feel like getting an ft01b-w this corsair case is too big for me, and not very good without a loop
Bad pic, but here's my i7:
nice rig Ion
The full ATX motherboard is so much nicer for cable management since the front panel cables and such are at the very top of the case where it's harder to see them. I'm considering ordering a NZXT unisleve 24pin and 6pin extension, I'd have the cables go up along the front of the case on the far side of the fan, the adapter would be hidden behind the drive bays, and then they'd come down by the HDD. Should look better, I just need to get them
Wow, I'm loving that rig Ion. That motherboard looks really good...
