something's going on me tinks
Sadly, mine is missing a vital piece to complete the build.. a i5 2500k.
^^ thing is beastly looking!
$2000 pc and rockin the 1990 PS2 curly corded keyboard.
Damn thing types like it's on crack and has to announce that its pressing a button. Clacking is louder than the whole pc.
So our mega pc that we're building in shop is running into problems (drivers + overheating) to fix the overheating part we're going full watercooling on the system (yay) just placed the order this morning with performance pc's and they said it would ship out today. heres a list of the parts - expect some pictures of the loop being set up

Specs in sig... Camera sucks or I suck at taking pictures... I vote for the latter...
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 <-
PS I know it's a white DVD drive, first thing I'll be changing come pay day.
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...
OMG NICE PC's!
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
Right on the factor.. Just thought that little thing could make it better, "Eye" look..
You and Heatkiller..
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!
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
i7 920 D0 @ 4Ghz 21*195 1.24v TRUE120
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
XFX HD6950 bios flashed to 6970
G.SKILL Ripjaws 12GB DDR3 1600
WD VelociRaptor 300Gb & 320Gb Seagate barracuda
CORSAIR 850TX 850watt PSU
Asus 24" mk241h
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
but shouldnt hinder your performance in any way, as said
Test rig 1:
Test rig 2:
Rig i dunno whut to do with:
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..
Separate names with a comma.
