It's best to sand the surface as well, to make sure that the primer sticks well. The bad part about painting all of it is that the pait comes off if scratched, so you have to be extra careful installing or removing equipment.

Found a spray that seems pretty solid. I know it's good because my house now stinks, even though i've carefully sprayed some parts the fumes are everywhere (used the utility room off the kitchen). Hoping it's dry tomorrow, I'll do the rest outside...

And what's the first thing you do when your new case arrives... :laugh:

That is one purty radiator setup. I'd recommend some black oxide socket head cap screws instead of the standard pan heads you are using to complete the look of total awesomeness.

Hmm.... worth considering. They do work with the chrome 'Enermax' banding at least. Plus, it's going to be in the base hidden by the mesh.

Hey guys, I got 2 questions.

First one is, since I have to ship my coolant from outside of the country since no one stocks it, if I run out (air is still gradually releasing so I need to top maybe 10 - 25ml every week or so, although it's pretty slow now), is it fine to top up with distilled water? I'm using EK Ekoolant.

Question 2, I have slight ambient temp problems, but when my room temp is about 25ish the idle temps are about 38-40. I don't have any problems under load because it's really rare for me to see it go over 50 unless stressing where it gets to around 58. The case is mounted sideways in a unit, so the only area that is open to air is the side of the case. I'm running push/pull with the push fans inside the case and the rad and the pull fans outside the case (top mounted not rear).

There's about a 7cm clearance from the top of the pull fans to the shelf. What I'm thinking is happening is there's not enough exchange of air and a lot of warm air is staying around the fans and rad by coming back down when it hits the shelf. Would it be a good idea to mount a fan or two vertically behind the pull fans to push the air outside of the area towards to open space?

Q1: Use plain distilled 24/7 and don't bother with coolant. I'm only using some because it came with my kit.

Q2: 58C load on wcing on intel is still good. Don't let it bother you. Have to remember, people run these things on stock coolers and see ~70C load @ stock clocks, they still run fine.

EDIT:


Oh N-Gen, care to give me a pic of how you got everything setup as follow-up from your wcing thread? Just curious....

It's only the idle temps bothering me, however at night and right now it seems much better 32-33-36-33. Got an NZXT Sentry Mix arriving this week so I'm going to be turning all fans and the pump down, hopefully there won't be a big difference. I tried using my Delta PFB1212UHE on the rad and the my surprise there was no real significant difference in temperature.

I'm only using coolant for the sake of slowly colour coding the system in black/red/gold/silver.

Here's my setup the only difference is, the 2.5" cage has been removed and I put the drives in another bay because the pump was making contact and the vibration was insane.

Thank you was wondering how you had it setup. Too bad you need more than 2 drives because you could have moved the pump above the bottom 3.5" cage alogn with removing the top 3.5" cage. Dual 5.25" bay res may work out better in the 912. Still trying to get a good case mod done to this rocketfish but isn't going to happen for quite a while.

@the54thvoid

Where did you get your rad stand? I am going to need one for my setup.

Once the HDD prices go down those bays will probably be full anyway, gonna use all my sata ports up. Bay res is not an option anymore, Blu-ray drive, Sentry Mix 3.5 - 5.25 mount to compensate for the 3.5" bay my 2 x 2.5" occupied, SSD caddy with USB 3.0 ports that came with my mobo, so yeah that's basically all the bays taken.

Your temperatures are fine, but your rad does seem a little starved for air. I used to have a top mounted dually, but I cut my case to allow for better airflow. It worked very well.

I'm looking further into a similar mod to fit a 360 rad. If you look at my current rad you can see it's tight to the rear of the case and slightly backwards. The bottom fans are placed correctly in the case but since the rad is slightly displaced to the back there is an empty section kind of like having 2 steps in a staircase, the rad and top fans are the top one and the bottom fans are the bottom one. I'll attach a photo later since it's not easy to explain lol

Edit: Just to let you all know I'm new to this and only one of my mates is into water cooling so I had some help to pick. I ordered this custom kit the day I got my H80 since it failed on me, and boy am I glad I bought this even if it was more than double the H80s price + the satisfaction of doing stuff yourself is amazing.

Yeah, if your going to do a top rad like that, it's better to allow more air flow to it. When you place it up top, it's better to have legs set up so that the unit can get air. Think of it like a computer case on carpet. If your case doesn't have any clearance and the carpet just "sucks" it in, then your PSU, if bottom mount, and or fans will have a hard time working due to no way to "breath"..

I've done then same thing as MX in some since...







Man, that takes me back.. to some old stuff.. lol.. first loop..





That was from my Samsung Glyde phone.. lol..


I am thinking of placing it on the Corsair case now.. Got a few rads to play with..

Hmm I completely forgot stand offs, should look into it. All fans externally or just as is with stand offs?

You'll need the fan tight up against the rad to keep the airflow going through the rad.

Coming along. Just waiting on the new Raystorm 2011 socket adapters to get posted out.

Spray painted innards. Have been lazy and not fully 'blackened' the case. But i'm cool with it for now.

My pump-radiator plumbing...

Put a drain in this time... Decided to ditch the quick disconnects, I didn't trust them. Plain 1/2" bitspower barbs and 7/16" tubing suits me fine.

Waiting for that adapter set for the loverly Raystorm...

Though my arm could suffice if i keep the pressure on...
New cpu support.jpg


I have 4 Enermax TB silence PWM fans on the rad, one in the drive bay blowing air to the gpu and the two stock Silverstone 92mm intake fans (@21dB) have been replaced with 92mm Enermax ones @ 14dB. The two 120mm ceiling fans are out.
A few bits and bobs to do. Not quite near t_ski's standards but I'm quite happy so far. Dreading my leak test after all my tubing and retubing but it's still part of the fun :laugh:

Looks good :toast: Glad to see you put in a t-line for the drain. I forgot to do that the first time and regretted it.

Is that the Asus P9X79 Pro? The funny thing is I just received mine today, along with a set or Corsair Vengeance 4x4GB (mine are black LP's though) :laugh:

Yup. I went for the Pro because the Deluxe wasn't in stock but then figured, I didn't need what the Deluxe had for the price difference. I went for the Blue Vengeance sticks to match the mobo!

Double check you cooler choice because I've had problems. Koolance and EK sell 2011 stand offs to mount existing coolers on. XSPC were a bit behind with their adapter screws (in transit).

My first & current w/c set up has no drain, that was my learning curve :)

Almost the same here. I was looking at the boards and thought I didn't need the extras from the Deluxe, and I figured I could spend that money on some new SSD's. I chose the black Vengeance LP's because almost everything else is black, and if I traded the mobo out for something else in the future, I figured the black would more than likely still match.

I was looking at the mounts on the board and the bracket on my Heatkiller and saw they would line up fine. However, I was not able to figure out the height difference. I sent an email off to Gary at Sidewinder Computers, and he replied that they are expecting some adapter kits for these blocks soon.

EDIT: I did some web serches and found Watercool's adapter kit consists of only a set of screws and a wrench:

http://server3.gs-shop.de/200/cgi-bin/shop.dll?SESSIONID=0346321659395471&PKEY=6915&AnbieterID=3395

Do you know what the screw length or thread pitch might be? I've heard that they are supposed to be M4, but that's about all.

I have emails from Gary at Sindewinder Computers and hank at Performance PCs that say they have them on order and are hoping to get them soon (perhaps as early as next week). My new CPU is supposed to arrive next week, so I may just see if I can find something local until I can get an official kit. Chances are the local hardware stores won't have any nice looking stainless steel screws that will work.

Hey guys, anyone know where I can get LEDs on G1/4 taps? I'd like to put some white light into the res to make the colour stand out a bit. Would be awesome if the cable was nicely sleeved.

The Koolance kit looks quite neat. Its definitely an M4 thread (http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cus...PU-360--CPU-370--BLT-CPINT2011-pid-14920.html) but the depth I couldn't say. The pic does give a hint.

You still need matching 'knurls' and springs etc but they could be used from a 1366 kit (surely?)

If my XSPC adapters weren't in the pipeline I'd have just gotten these instead.
Is this what you need?
