    Hi guys and girls, i am planning to redo my watercooling system because i just ordered this morning some parts for my GPU. Costed me 300 euro's.

    Well here is what i have at the moment:

    Rig Specs
    OS: xp64
    case: Lian Li A10
    mobo: Asus Blitz Extreme

    shroud: TFC Xtender BLue Universal 120mm
    tube: Fesser UV High Flow en Flexible
    liquid: 4x Fesser 500ml VS.C (without UV=is better for cooling, that is what i read)
    --------------
    Parts i ordered for my GPU are(some parts are for the current loop too like Crane):
    - Radiator: ThermoChill PA120.1 - 120 Single
    - TFC Herbie Clip / TubeClamp (1/2) kunststof Zwart

    - and other more stuff, like Black Fesser Tubes and more Fittings i wont post.


    --------------

    Here is photo of how my system is now:

    Here are some photos of the Rig that i took appart today, and also i removed the GPU stock cooling (sorry of the pictures are too big):

    Pump & Res from old Thermaltake bigwater 760i for the 2nd loop

    -----------------------------

    PLAN:

    I want to make some small modifications to my case so the tubing can go easier. I want to make 1 or 2 tubing holes for the pump. 1 That goes directly upward and straight ahead. and cut of on the side for cabling. i show u some pictures what i mean.

    Pump with cutting circles:

    The new radiator i was planning to put it in the 5'25inch front bay with the Thermaltake Pump&Reservoir ( i know these are not the best parts but i had it from my old watercooling config. So i thought just use that :D )

    I will show more when i have my other parts tomorrow. I keep you up to date.

    Aeolas out, PEACE!

    hi man :) thx, i just ordered new items :p damn cost me another 255 euro haha only to do my memory. oh well then i get some nice stuff.

    What i like what i ordered is the memory heatsink from Koolance. here check the photo here: http://www.highflow.nl/water-blocks/ram-blocks/koolance-ram-33-single-ddr-ddr2-ddr3-sd-.html

    and some of those koolance nice fittings: 45 degrees :D
    http://www.highflow.nl/aansluitinge...tting-single-swiveling-45-degree-nzl-dxg.html

    But i will take some pictures soon, i think i will get the items tomorrow at work.

    Guys if you are reading anyways, can u tell me which memory i should buy? because this morning i rip open my heatsink from my DDR3 memory and 2 of those Chips went with the heatsink. I think they are Glewed on the heatsink, damn lol.

    I was thinking of 2x1GB Cellshock PC3-14400 (Micron D9GTR), or do u know other nice ones?

    hi :) i am using a this gpu waterblock: http://www.highflow.nl/water-blocks/gpu-blocks/universal-gpu-core-block/ek-vga-supreme-plexi.html

    i want to get a a dual mem with D9GTR type, if cool better i think can hit high speed and stableness. i am reading about cellshock brand, with micron d9gtr, and i want that. But i read that other brands have those micron d9gtr inside too. But the special thing of Cellshock is that they come with stock 1800 mhz on 1.7volts.

    if anyone know more i would like to know

    Ok peoples :) here are new pictures if the arriving items :) the pictures are not so good as last time because i am using a camera from work. But it will do allright. Also the picture of the Koolance watercooling heatsink doesnt do it justice since its very nice if it was shot by my own camera.

    good i can do this at work cause internet here. ok here we go

    haha yeah to do watercooling is nice , its that u have to do it yourself. that is the best part :) and then after ofcourse to enjoy the look of it. But u have to make the tubing go nice to make a system look nice. and also the Light that u will use. It must not be too light bright, subtle light is good :)

    And to build a watercooling high quality stuff its expensive so when u start, u have to be sure that money is not an issue. if you just buy a kit watercooling system... i dont think u get so good cooling. i had it before and that was junk.

    What happend to your mobo?

    I just posted new photos :D
