Nice looking mod. I like the looks of the fan grill. The case is for my Mom's new computer, which doesn't even have a GPU, so I'm hoping the temps will remain OK. The 2500 seems to run fairly cool, but I doubt it will be turned off very often, so I'll keep an eye on them.

^ Far cleaner and better cabble management than any OEM would provide. To me this is partially why you put together your own rig.

Good cable management leads to better airflow in your case, and it looks good too :p

I see you're still rocking the Gigabyte P45-UD3P... mine is still chomping through every game. I'm upgrading CPU / RAM / Mobo soon, but I will miss this board if I get rid of it.

I am also still using a UD3P. You can kind of see it here http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2288318&postcount=16642 after my first successful water cooling setup.

It and the Q6600 are champs. They just keep going. :D

Slight updates to my home workstation. I have mounted the intake fan of my H70 on the exterior of the 120mm exhaust mount on the back of the 800D. I get a lot of hate for using an H70 in an 800D. Oh well.

Had to use my crappy little camera. Tried to make them at least sharp enough to see. Usually it takes really horrible pics in low light.

White CCFL OFF (slightly older pic before I moved intake fan)


White CCFL ON

It's just a regular white cold cathode, but the reason it looks so bright is I have it mounted in between the top exhaust fans and the side panel mounting rod. It has no obstructions so it shines white light everywhere. Some people make the mistake of mounting the lights on the mobo tray, but I like mine hidden and in a spot where it illuminates everything.

If that's true I'd like to know who builds that one. Looks very nice.

I don't think it's pre-built honestly. It looks really clean and nice. Usually companies that do prebuilt WC'd setups don't do them quite so perfectly. They always use quick methods unless you pay a lot extra.

**After further inspection of his case gallery, it can't be prebuilt, because there's an older version of this build up. Unless he sent it to a mod shop where they re-did his water cooling.

That loop is insane looking, awesome job :toast:

Your tubing makes some fairly tight bends but there is no kinkiness going on :p

/edit

No clamps ? 7/16'' ID 5/8'' OD Tygon ?

Looks clean, I'd be scared though :~0
Thanks very much. And you are the first to notice I have no clamps.

The XPS kit came with 7/16" tubing and 1/2" fittings. So I got the same size in blue Primo Chill from Micro Center.

The good part is that it fits so snug when put on correctly I don't need clamps. I literally have to cut them off. I made sure each leg was positioned and long enough to prevent kinking, and so I can slide out the reservoir. But I should shorten the tube from the CPU to the GPU as it is causing the card to sag a bit.

I would like to redo it with compression fittings which seem like a better design and would make it easier to make changes.

I love 7/16' ID tubing on 1/2" barbs :) I used to run DTEK 1/2" barbs and Tygon R-3603 7/16" ID tubes and I could grab my loop by the block and swing it around my head with the pump and 2x120mm radiator on while the loop was full of water.

compression fittings LOOK nice imo
but they tend to leak, especially the turnable ones


but barbs with clamps or zippies are better. atleast thats what i found out the hard way :(

Thanks guys. Maybe I should stick with what I have. It's been over a month now and not a drop. Zip ties sound like a nice economical precaution however.

That of course is if you push them completely on the barb correctly. I also found out the hard way what happens if you don't. :cry:
