    If that's true I'd like to know who builds that one. Looks very nice.

    I don't think it's pre-built honestly. It looks really clean and nice. Usually companies that do prebuilt WC'd setups don't do them quite so perfectly. They always use quick methods unless you pay a lot extra.

    **After further inspection of his case gallery, it can't be prebuilt, because there's an older version of this build up. Unless he sent it to a mod shop where they re-did his water cooling.

    That loop is insane looking, awesome job :toast:

    Your tubing makes some fairly tight bends but there is no kinkiness going on :p

    /edit

    No clamps ? 7/16'' ID 5/8'' OD Tygon ?

    Looks clean, I'd be scared though :~0

    Thanks very much. And you are the first to notice I have no clamps.

    The XPS kit came with 7/16" tubing and 1/2" fittings. So I got the same size in blue Primo Chill from Micro Center.

    The good part is that it fits so snug when put on correctly I don't need clamps. I literally have to cut them off. I made sure each leg was positioned and long enough to prevent kinking, and so I can slide out the reservoir. But I should shorten the tube from the CPU to the GPU as it is causing the card to sag a bit.

    I would like to redo it with compression fittings which seem like a better design and would make it easier to make changes.

    I love 7/16' ID tubing on 1/2" barbs :) I used to run DTEK 1/2" barbs and Tygon R-3603 7/16" ID tubes and I could grab my loop by the block and swing it around my head with the pump and 2x120mm radiator on while the loop was full of water.

    compression fittings LOOK nice imo
    but they tend to leak, especially the turnable ones


    but barbs with clamps or zippies are better. atleast thats what i found out the hard way :(

    Thanks guys. Maybe I should stick with what I have. It's been over a month now and not a drop. Zip ties sound like a nice economical precaution however.

    That of course is if you push them completely on the barb correctly. I also found out the hard way what happens if you don't. :cry:

    yep, it can be a very expensive lesson with wc if you're not carefull, or if the stuff is broken

    i lost 2 gtx-275s, i7 920, mb, and a ax850w psu on that account

    but i had 75% covered by the company i bought the wc stuff from

    im a big fan of compression fittings, i was converted from barbs...if screwed properly, there shouldn't be a any dramas....

    even thou in the pic i have a few clamps and barbs shown...i ordered the parts online at night , went to pick them up in the morning from , i wont mention any names (pc *cough* casegear) and they were out of stock of compression fittings.......ggrrr....either way the build had to go on.......

    Here is a high rez pic.....i moved the rad 120 ml LED fan to the side for some more light near the CPU block..

    Yes, exactly

    Better than it used to. 2x 6950 with unlocked shaders @ 850/1325 is still not enough though, so back to single monitor for me.

    I've got u2311's, too, tried both. Don't think the wife's into moving shit around any more.:p
