Right after a time out and rethink following the H100i fiasco and my decision to go for a full CPU/GPU watercooled loop...

I've done a wee bit of shopping


First up some more hardware -


One Adata XPG Gaming v1.0 8GB (2x4Gb) DDR3 PC3-16000C9 2000MHz Dual Channel Memory Kit








One Creative Sound Blaster Z OEM Sound Card









And now some of the watercooling components -

There was never any doubt as to my preference as regards the CPU block and despite my initial reservations as to the CSQ series redesign...


1 x EK Supreme LTX CSQ CPU Copper Acetal Waterblock





I've decided not to go for a full cover waterblock for the GPU on this occasion, I've thought ahead to the long term and upgradability of the GPU; for this reason the ideal choice was the EK VGA Supremacy CSQ Copper Acetal.






Choice of fittings -


EK CSQ 14 45 Degree Rotary Elbow Fittings Silver





EK EN PSC 14 Compression Fittings Nickel Silver






And lastly some of these -


Primochill Silver Ghost Compression Fittings

Well the rads arrived this morning



First up an Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 240mm Full Copper





As the name suggests the ST30 is 30mm deep, this will be mounted in the roof.



Next up is it’s biggest brother an Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 240mm Full Copper





A staggering 80mm deep This will be vertically mounted at the front of the case.



Here’s a comparison shot to show the sheer size of the Monsta against the ST30

The bad news: You had a bad experience with the H100i.

The good news: We get so see a full loop now.

I think more bad stuff needs to happen to you
(no, not really of course, just to be clear ).

But anyway, those are some nice bits you got there, I like where this is heading now even more
than before.

Looks like a good bit of kit you got picked out for the now full water loop x-). Still a shame that you had that experience with Corsair, their product line has typically been very good with me :-/. Either way, moving on as it were. For the video card what will you be using for cooling the rest of the bits (mosfets, memory)?

Right time to do some work on the GPU...


For the build I'm using an EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC+ 3GB.

Great card and overclocks like the Devil's own IF you can stop the thermal throttling.








First order of business is to strip it down








Clean it up and prep it








And now Phase one of it's transformation (please note phase one )







One EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC+ 3GB with mounted EK VGA Supremacy CSQ Copper Acetal and added Koolance RAM Heatsinks.

Very nice job there. Everything looks like it grew that way, just as [insert name of creator deity here] intended! Will you be able to reuse the OEM backplate for the memory on the back of the board?
