im with everyone else this thing should be screaming fast when its finished, also i the fact that you went with the DO stepping i7, was that intentional? either way it will take what ever you could possibly throw at it.

Looking good. That board block really gives out good layout and curves. Id like to see how you fit the Fesser on top ^^. Or does HAF already have screws to fit the 120x3 rad on top?

Your right, thought it was a haf at first glance.


@Howard,
Dont forget the biocide, that UV light will accelerate algae growth. Nice layout for a first time liquid cooling build. I see youve been reading and researching a lot. ^^

Nice hardware chasis a little small.

l would prefer a bigger chasis for your hardware,giving you that powerful Rig look.

Very nice job though.keep up that hardwork.

thx! yep about that Xeno Pro, there's slight increase of performance, but slightly! let's say for ping, before using it is around 150 after Xeno Pro like 120-130. so it's obvious there whether u really want it, but for eye candy? why not.. hehe

Looks really good, is your flow going into the chipset first, if yes then your cpu is at the end of the loop getting the hottest water,, och for temps at 4Ghz

hey thx bru!
my loop is CPU --> Mosfet --> Chipset NB+SB --> Radiator
i've done some tests of Prime95 or OCCT, with 4.3Ghz and 4.0Ghz settings it ran pretty hot at full load (71'C) when ilde over 45'c, it's too risky..
so, i stay at 3.2Ghz at this moment, until i got brighter idea of low temp/volt 4.0Ghz.
any idea?
