    Well, on Tagan in idle I got 240W, on CM 207W. On full load (OCCT) tagan got 434W and CM 401W. And yes, tagan was made before certification. Its the quite old TG480-U2 model with split/combine 12V rail. It is nice PSU but CM got modular cables which make cable mangement easier and also I am having UPS so more efficient PSU is welcome as it will not suck the power of the battery while power is down, and this is quite often while windy weather. Got actually everything on UPSs. So conclusion is that bigger psu is consuming less power than the smaller one.

    I got the WC setup installed today and I'm loving the results:
    [​IMG]
    (the peak temps were after running IntelBurnTest for ~20 minutes)

    This is about 16-19C cooler than I was seeing with the Gaia with similar ambient temperatures (and not even counting that the Gaia had the advantage of the high-speed box fan in the window)

    Here's what the WC setup looks like (ignore the speaker and Viking in the foreground)
    [​IMG]
    The tubing is a little bit too long, but I don't think it's going to harm anything too badly. I'm already contemplating adding a RX120 to the back fan mount--somebody stop me!

    Looks good. Soon you won't ever want to go back, especially after you see that CPU and the vid card under load temps with water... :D

    Thanks! I was admittedly very nervous filling $1000+ in hardware with water, but so far so good, and the results are amazing. I think that with another radiator it could be even better--the coolant tubes are a bit warm to the touch.

    Get yourself a 240mm or 360mm radiator and attach it to the back then you can push that CPU to 4,5-4,8GHz easy :)

    I've been building water-cooled PC's since 2006 now and I'll never go back to air cooling again.

    Some of the rigs I've built the last two years

    They're not so pretty but damn efficient when it comes to 24/7 clocks :toast:

    And when you can OC your CPU close to the same max clocks as you do with LN2 just on water for a benchmark then it's all fun :D

    3960X + 2x 7970's all water cooled, dual-loop

    Nice! :toast:

    I've been eyeing that case for a long time, I wonder if you can help me with a couple of questions :)

    a) The case is very spacious, would a EATX board like the Asus RIVE fit in the tray?

    b) I've seen this case available from many etailers, may I ask where you purchased yours?

    Hope you can answer my questions, enjoy your new case :rockout:

    Thanks for your replies guys, was looking to migrate my LGA2011 to a new case to make room for a Haswell build, well, this case is out of the question it seems :( I have an old Tt Armor+ that I can use I guess, thanks for the info :)

    It looks to me like those are the non-pro version with TLC NAND

    The Pro is faster and is built with higher-quality NAND, so it should last a bit longer. If you can spring for the extra price I think it's a wise choice.

    Yupp, works best for my use as I like to push both GPU's and CPU to max running WCG.

    I will put this rig on my own account from April 1st, makes good numbers with CPU @4,8GHz and both GPU's running 1200/1500 with 12 WU's per GPU.

    I'm quite sure it does--with the 3930k@4.2 and a HD7930@975 I'm getting ~85k PPD (maybe a tad more) out of my setup. Roughly similar PPD from the HD7950/i3 setup.
