Any more than this is a waste.
Well I just used the spread method, I put a grain of rice sized dot on and smoothed it over the whole CPU. it was only just thick enough for me not to completely make out the text on the CPU.

Booted up and HWMonitor is showing a steady 27C! 4 degrees better off!!!

All the cores are currently bellow 22C! So I just have some bad TIM between the cores and the heatspreader Or the solder mix they used this time...

Hey guys and here is update number five!

First of all, I would like to apologies with the amount of time it has taken to get these images together! There has been lots of problems and things taking up my time! First off I had to take some time off for the project to be the head of press at the Weyfest music festival! That was a long but really fun weekend! Got to meet some amazing artists and take some "good" photos of them! Then a few days after that I flew off to my holiday in Spain! I am now back in the UK and have also got some good and bad news...

It is best to start with the bad news, while I was away I had to send off my compact flash card which held some of the Weyfest photos and a fair few of the build log images. Unfortunately the card is dead and it has taken some of the photos with it. I sent it off to be recovered and they managed to save some stuff but not all of it. I am now missing all the tube bending images, so I am going to try and take some photos to fill the gap! Now for the good news! My Linksys 1900AC ( A pile of crap router) finally conked out on me. I had to send it back to Linksys to be RMA'd. They checked it and there was a technical fault. They have now sent me out a new one, hopefully the V2 of the router! which will be here shortly!

Here is a quick image I put together of one of my photos from Weyfest and a photo from my holiday!



But now back to PC time!

Here is some photos which were recovered from the CF card of the PC in my garden with the radiators installed! I have got a Alphacool NexXxos Monsta 240mm and 360mm. These were taken from my previous build as they are simply brilliant radiators! They fill the space at the front of the case beautifully and they are solid!



In the basement I am using the trust AF120 fans from Corsair! These are great case fans and this one in the basement is to help cool the SSD (Not that it needs cooling) and the HDD.



I must of had the PC outside for like two minutes before little bugs started to land on the case! He must just be a fan of my work. Or just a fan of Caselabs cases!



Here is a shot of the two radiators in place! These things are huge, but perfectly sized for this type of case! You will also notice the hole in the case, this is going to be drilled out using the new £35 drill piece I had to buy to be able to extend the size to fit the EK-AF pass through fittings. Who said watercooling was cheap!



Here is one of the drain ports at the bottom of the radiator. The drain ports are placed here because it hides them the best. I am not a fan of showing off drainage systems as they usually look fairly ugly!



Everything has fan filters on it! Love the aesthetics these give! The ones internally are black and the external ones are chrome! I am a sucker for black and chrome!



Here is a shot of the other drainage system within the system. This is directly bellow the 240mm radiator and fits through a small hole in the case. Also here are the braided front panel connectors. I braided them myself in the last build! It took a long time for me to get them exactly how I wanted them, multiple attempts for something that never gets seen!



At the front of the case protecting the rest of the system from dust is all the Silverstone magnetic dust filters! I have the system in a heavy postive airflow system (5 blowing in and 2 blowing out). This means that I need dust filters or the system will get seriously furry quick! The only problem with these is that the ones of the 360mm radiator are really difficult to clean as the front of the case there isnt removeable... It means it need a vacuum and a paint brush to clean them.



The only problem I have with the fans I am using is that I cannot directly mount the fan filters to the fans. The issue is that the blades actually stick out a couple of MM's and because of this, they will rub and not spin because of the filters. so... I have had to take some rubber washers to space them out. This also hopefully helps with reducing the noise of them. I am using Phobia E-loops on a 7v fan speed reducer. These are amazing fans and I highly recommend them as watercooling fans!



Some of the smaller details of the caselabs case! The hex mesh looks on point and everything is made to be solid!


Behind the AF120 fans I am using rubber silencing material to help reduce the noise these give off. I have always found the AF120's to be quite noise fans and these do help with the noise output of them. The main reason that I use them is because of the fan rings. I love matching the colour with the coolant!



Here is a macro shot of the fan grill and the fins of the 240mm radiator!



And finally a little bit of the EK branding coming through on their reservoir mount! It holds the res very tightly in place, otherwise I would probably of had wet parts in my last build...



Thanks again for checking the build log out! There is plenty more content to come! I have got tube bending, case drilling and part fitting still to come! And there may even be some cable braiding to come!

If you haven't already, please sub to the thread to receive updates on the thread so you can be the first to see kill the parts in my system! (Hopefully that wont happen!)

Jealous of the parts! Looking nice and clean so far, which is just my cup of tea.

Lovely shiny parts there, but the thing that caught my eye is in your post #7. One of the pictures you use a magnetic bowl thing to hold your screws in place. Could you please tell me where to get that and more importantly what it's called?

One of the best things I bought actually! I am forever dropping/ knocking screws onto the floor!

I bought this one:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ilpage_o09_s00

Its by toolzone on amazon and its only £3.50
