    Yep, much better. There's always more that can be done, even on my rig. It's a matter of how much time you have to put into it. I've only managed what you can see, and the rest is OK.

    Sounds good. :toast:

    Pro tip: if you're going to run the loop outside the case for leaks, set everything on newspaper. Even if there was a slight leak and it dried before you could fine it, the paper will be wrinkled where the leak was.

    I would recommend an additional hour or so in the case when you get it reinstalled, just to make sure that nothing came loose.

    Here are some pics of my 'new' rig courtesy of MoonPig who didnt need that un-godly amount of power at his finger tips (nor do i for that matter - but it was an offer in a million years i couldnt refuse)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Apart from a new board, CPU, Ram and Corsair H80i - everything is still the same way I left it as the last pic.

    Im supposed to be working on getting all the cables hidden and tied away, I started the task but i ended up sorting out all my software first.

    No overclock just yet as im still making it battleworthy, but I will get around to it later this week when im off work.

    Ive already taken an extra 2-3days off just for the swap between me and MoonPig as my dad is away and theres no one else at home to accept the delivery.

    I got work tomorrow so I will probably leave overclocking this beast until the weekend.

    - Aptly renamed 'Rapture X' {Moonpig Edition} (Full specs are on the left)

    Heh, I got them from a shop here in the UK. The H80i is so much bigger then my Antec 920 that i couldnt mount it at the back like I originally planned to due to the top 180mm causing a little obstruction.

    I was wondering if i should buy a new case but I didnt do anything about it.

    If i was gonna go with the newer version of the Define XL i would have got a H100i instead, then again i want to go back to a windowed case so Im looking at some like a Corsair 650D or 800D but the 800D is too expensive

    Hey I'm actually using the h80i in my build (Pics are above) but honestly get a new case it's so worth it. I'm reading great temps while oc'ed @ 4.5ghz max temps around 35c. Plus rebuilding is always fun as well as getting new things

    No experience with water cooling so ignore my ignorance but why is there traces of red liquid in your loop? Ive only ever seen clear liquid used.

    u let the pump run atleast 1h without electricity on the components(mainbaord, gpu´s....)
    to make shure all air in the loop/rads/blocks gets out and loop stays dry (fittings connectors), if so u connect your components and fire it up

    he still working on it

    That was EK's red coolant, it comes in many different colors :)

    Yes, that photo was taken after the first run with the coolant in it :)

    If you guys wanna follow the progress I'm posting updates here:

    Project Crimson Titan

    Besides a small leak in one of the pump's barbs it's been almost 24 hrs without any other incidents since I put everything back together, will upload more pics once the system is up and running, thanks for your comments! :toast:

    ever think turning that rad around might look a wee bit better not to mention slightly shorter hose length or is it that it wont fit the other way

    I've done some very limited pre-assembly on the CM692 for the 3930k:
    [​IMG]
    I installed the PSU and radiator, wired up the fans, installed the DVD-RW drive, replaced the back fan with a 38mm thick DELTA from a DP workstation (moves a ton of air) and did a little bit of cable routing. I'm surprised how little space there is between the rad and PSU--I'm glad the PSU isn't modular :eek:

    I have to agree with you, actually, that was my original intention, but when I tried to align it to the exit holes on my case and screw the radiator using the mounting bracket, there was like a two inch difference in height between the barbs and the holes in the case that would have made the tubes kink, and to compound the problem, the elbows I had originally ordered to use with the radiator didn't fit the ID of my tubing...

    Eventually I plan to re-order all the compression fits and elbows I got wrong the first time and reinstall the radiator, thank you very much for your suggestion:rockout:

    It's my first Fractal case. The Define XL version which comes with the Titanium finish front panel. It is very heavily sound proofed and opperates like it's not even there. It is even well ventilated for such a tight running chassis.
    It is a very nice case to look at. I wrote a review here: http://www.technewshw.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13949 I have wanted a case like this from my teenage years.
