Thought I'd give you a quick whizz through my watercooling
1x Zern.at Socket 939 Copper/Nickel (Rates 2nd best waterblock on market by watercoolingplanet.de)
1x XSPC Dual Crossflow 120mm Radiator with mounts (fans can be fitted both sides).
1 x Panaflo 125cfm 120mm fan...very very loud fan it has to be said
1 x Vantec Stealth...musg get another: nice and quiet
1x Laing DD-12v D5 Pump (latest and greatest 12v pump on market)
1x Danger Den Fillport (for topping up your water)
3m (approx) of 1/2" ID Clearflex tubing
10x Jubilee clamps (best clamps to stop water leaks )
1x Bottle of UV Blue Dye
1x Bottle of Racing Coolant
Stripped out the entire case ready for insertion of parts. After some test fitting decided that I couldn't use the crossflow fan any more
After lots of hacking (all my holesaw bits were too small
) I managed to fit the Fillport. I think this took the longest!
After looking through NoL's suggestion of the water loop I hoked some up. Lickily I MSN'd this pic to XMS who told me that the pump pumped upwards!! WHOA
That^ would have produced a 20' fountain!!
Time to reconsider mefinks. Drilled some holes in the floor of the case for the pump instead and went with XMS's suggesed drawing
This part was pretty good fun and didn't take that long to do....hooking it all up was pretty fun actually
Dry loop ready for some H2O:
After some fussing with the water like little bit in...pump on...little bit more in...pump on...(etc) I got to this stage: firing it up for longer:
Left this overnight to go through. Not one leak *crosses fingers* *prays* so I put a touch more blue UV in, purple not being my colour, and we had a finished loop!
Time to get some componenets in mefinks!
Well it all went ok *sigh of relief* so I boshed on some UV for effect
I've only just finished but I left on my previous config with:
