    Not to attack your work.... but that tube routing looks terrible, and is also HORRIBLY inefficient that way...otherwise a nice Rig,tho :)

    I'm with you on the routing of the tubing.. the GPU block can have a top in/out.. Doesn't have to be top, bottom.. The power of the pump won't/shouldn't have a problem with it being like that..
    Still like the pieces in the case.

    I'm messing around..

    Going to take out the rivets on the back panel, flip it upside down.. Then think about the next step.

    Well I thought it was time to get a new case, so I did, and this is the result of the cable management. Feedback appreciated. Specs as per <-

    HS, that system looks nice and clean for being a non-modular psu. Like how you placed all the "unused" cables at the bottom of the hdd's.. Grab a small sheet panel, cut it to size, spray it black and hide those cables! it would look nice when done.. Trust me.

    Cosmo case.. Placed the pump and extra's down there...

    i never said, he will have problems due to it... but it raises the amount of time, that is needed to bleed upon refill, and will probably cost him between 0.5-1c (due to lost Head Pressure...which is important for the HK 3.0).... for free, that is already quite a bit in my opinion... and not much work to redo it, when practized a little;)
    The Pieces are definetly top notch, i especially like the HK 3.0 CU:D

    I just love this Block... KILLER Performance, with KILLER looks, for a KILLER price...
    If the CPU is the Cheese on top, and the MX2 is the Butter... then the HK 3.0 is the Bread the whole Thing is based on!:p
    In my Opinion, the best start for a new loop... put a HK block in the Basket... performancewise, these Blocks are always on the Top spots, for a realtively good price;)

    Ripped out all of the water cooling stuff for a good cleaning. *Got a new XSPC dual 5.25" res/pump bay coming in too. It's a PITA trying to bleed a loop with the pump/res. at the lowest point.

    lol.. Spokesperson for HK.. J/k.. I love my 1156 Lt block.. but, I went to a Koolance CPU-360 block when I was able to get one for nice price.. ;)

    Nice one man. Yeah, the bleeding must be a PITA.. But, how was it with the quick connects?


    Now, I got some more pictures of my butchered RavenO2

    Not officially, but inofficially, i love to direct each WCing Enthusiast, directly to my fellow countrymen... German engineering is always liked from what i have heard;)

    The Koolance block should also perform very good, but sadly, i didnt liked the Design...
    for me it looked like a fancy piece of high quality... sailing equipment, sorry:eek:
    but shouldnt hinder your performance in any way, as said:)

    you know as many of these water cooling setups that I've seen on here I've come to notice one thing...

    if your cooling both CPU and GPU/s why go from the CPU block into the GPU block why not put in a Y or T joint in before the CPU and goto each separately, I know it's less hassle to do it the other way but by doing so your just pumping already heated water onto the GPU and even hotter water by the time it gets to a second or third GPU block sorta like this crude sketch

    Some even use a seperate WC loop for CPU and GPU, two pumps, two radiators etc..
