Enjoy the silence!

I've changed my fans over the years to try and get the ones with the quietest profile with the best airflow ratio. If your fans are good then the true value of water comes through as your clocks stay maxed (no temp slow down) and the noise is gone. :toast:
I tip my hat to you sir for the reference to my favorite Depeche Mode song :respect:


Thank you very much for your help, in all honesty, I would've never done it without your advice, for the first time ever, I feel like I can lay back and enjoy my PC without having to think what my next upgrade is gonna be :laugh:

Check out this temps after running various games and benchmarks:



Rarely have I seen it break 40 degrees, I have been playing so many games I have not even had a chance to try OCing my cards :)





And like you said, the PC is almost silent, a couple of times I found myself checking to make sure the PC was on :p



Thanks to anyone who has commented in this thread, I might change the barbs for compression fittings (here I go again) but it'll be a while before I do that, for now, I'll just go play some games :toast:

Yes, I had thought of that too, maybe I'll sell them in our forums, oh, and thanks for the info on the Crimson Tide :toast:




Yes, good observation, the screws that came with the WB didn't fit after adding the backplate, as they were only 4mm long, the screws that came included with the backplate were long enough, but too thin to get any retention with the WB, so a visit to my local Lowes produced these screws:

http://img.techpowerup.org/130324/IMG_6560.jpg

6mm long, and they fit perfectly even after adding the backplates ;)




Yes, they make their own fluid mix, which they recommend using with their products, you can find them here:

EK EKoolant Premium Liquid Cooling Premix Coolant - 1L - Blood Red

Unfortunately it's currently out of stock, I was lucky to grab a single bottle before they ran out, and used only about 800ml



Brave is not exactly the word I would use, I thought "what the heck, I ain't got no time for this" and went to town with my dremel :twitch:

I know, really foolish, and after I finished cutting I immediately realized the error of my ways :p fortunately a can of compressed air with a precision nozzle took care of cleaning the slots appropriately, I know, I got lucky this time, but I swear it wont happen again :eek:
Awesome. Thanks for that info. going to order some of those on frozencpu when I get my backplate for my GPU when I add my CPU to the loop. Why didn't you screw in any of the other holes. Looks like you only did the 4 around the GPU die.

That photo was taken before I purchased the screws, the four holes around the GPU are actually a bit deeper (aprox 1mm) than the rest of the holes, so I was able to use the screws that came with the WB temporarily while I purchased the other screws to hold the WB And the backplate.

Remember, the screws you need are the M3-.50 6mm, good luck with your build and let me know if you have any other questions ;)

Don't forget to upload pics as well :rockout:

Yeah I was just looking at some counter suck ones like what come with the backplate. you can get any size, and any thread from this awesome website ive used for case mods a few years back.

You should upload a close picture of one of your GPUs with all the new screws in and such. :)

Sure, I'll take a pic as soon as I get back home, dunno how good it'll be though as the cards are installed and everythin and I don't wanna disturb the water loop :p

You're welcome mate, let me know how that bracket works for you! :toast:

It's immersive, I know 3D is probably a passing fad, but for me it's actually worth it, makes the gaming experience more enjoyable :)

Here's the pic you requested, unfortunately is not very good, but it's the best I could get without having to remove the cards from the board.

As you can only see one of the three M3 screws I used, the black screws are the ones that came included with the water block, and in those specific areas (GPU, I/O bracket and exposed PCB) they work perfectly fine :)



I hope this helps :)

A small update, and possibly a name change, this rig shall henceforth be known as The Crimson Dragon! :rockout::laugh:

This board is a thing of beauty, I'm sure even Aegon Targaryen would be proud of the dragon crest:







And what better illustrate its draconic heritage than a dragon punch to the spleen!

Time for Ver 2.0 of the Crimson Dragon, now enhanced with an Asus ROG PG278Q G-Sync 144Hz monitor, soon to be water cooled dual EVGA GTX980 SCs, an Intel Core i7 5930K, 16GBs of 3000MHz DDR4 and an Asus ROG Rampage V Extreme:

First the ROG Swift:






Now the EVGA GTX980 SCs, EK water blocks have already been ordered for these cards, and I'm just waiting for them to ship for FrozenCPU:



Crimson Titan Ver. 1.0 waiting to be put to rest, Ver. 1.5 (i7 4770K Crimson Dragon) is currently powering my X-Fire 290X rig:



Crimson Titan gutted:



My Titans have gone back to their old gorgeous NVTT coolers and found a new home in my 2600K rig:



The new guts for Crimson Dragon 2.0








Asus ROG RIVE next to RVE:



All I'm waiting for is the DDR4 modules and the water blocks, I'll update this log as soon as I get the new parts, I hope you guys like the pics, and please let me know if you have any comments.

I'm thinking that, I'm tired of the HAF-X, :p

It is a good case, but its water cooling mounting options are so limited

I'm thinking that, I'm tired of the HAF-X, :p

It is a good case, but its water cooling mounting options are so limited
900D: Run a 360 in the top and a 480 at the bottom would be sweet! Blocks for your CPU, motherboard VRMs and GPUs.

What did you end up doing with the spare parts?

A few more pics of this work in progress:



Fermi, mainstream Kepler, Extreme Kepler and mainstream Maxwell:



A few good cards:



These 256GBs SSD and 3TB HDD drives will go in my old 3930K build I moved upstairs, the RAID 0 drives in that build are being cloned to the new, lower performing drives as I type this:



Some other parts for the new build:



G.Skill DDR4 3000MHz at 15-15-15-35 timings and 1.35V:



I already drained the H220-X and will replace the coolant with EK blood red coolant and the hoses with longer Tygon 5/8" transparent tubing that will allow me to mount the rad in the front of the case:



And finally, the Corsair 760T case (thanks to Adulaamin for the suggestion), will start testing and putting everything together tomorrow, only thing missing is the EK water blocks for the GTX980s I already ordered from Frozen CPU:



Let me know what you guys think, and I'll upload more pics as I build the rig, stay tuned ;)
