Ohhh, love water cooling looks like
Yep, I would, if it’s not too much of a pain in the ass
I tried to bend the link again, Got the bend from the GPU side good, but the bend on the Rad side was botch.
Gotta wait for more tubing to ship in before I rework it.
Ey that looks way better man! Love it The tubing really fills in the build and makes the empty spaces look filled!
Were you sticking with clear fluid, or would you add a blue fluid in there for thematic effect?
Yup, the bend looks a lot better, the only sucker was that it was botched enough that is sprunk a leak. Gonna have to wait patiently for more tubing to come.
I'm sticking with my tried and test Distilled with blue food dye for now, and a few drops of detergent to help bleed the air bubbles. With the drain port not working as intended, tubing not satisfactory, and pump noise still bothering me. I think its going to be a while till Im final with my build to put pastel in it. Not bothering with Vue as I explained it in my thread, just too much work
I wanted to swap the rear 2 top fans (Right above where the cpu is) with Noctuas, but i think it will ruin the aesthetics. (Current top fans are 20mm thick)
Bring back externally mounted radiators?
.. OMG , I remember using a fishtank pump and garden hose pipe and hose clips back in the day .. this brought back memories
Good old days when cases weren't meat for WC. WC gears had definitely changed.
Does anybody still run Dual loops?
I'm finding my GPU heating up the water temp more than my liking. CPU temps matter more to me than GPU temps.
I love it mate!! I fondly remember using a car heater core and hoses as an external radiator - ugly as hell, but it worked
Guilty as charged, running dual loops as the Titans dump a lot of heat into the loop,had to separate them out.
That looks really clean despite dual loops. What rads are you running for each loop?
Super tempting for me to go set up another loop to isolate GPU heat load as well.
Thanks Pazzu, case is gigantic, running a 240PE and a 360SE.
That's an impressive setup mate
Umbrella Corp. : I too have an X71 case... I've got a 420 rad in the front, 360 in the bottom chamber and a 240 up top cooling a pair of 780Ti's and a i7 980x whisper silent and OC'd to the hilt... with that much cooling capacity I rarely worry about the load of two 780's on top of the 140w+ tdp cpu
Wish I'd sprung the extra $ for the tempered glass edt. though.
I think you have some green Algae or something in your loop.
The glass makes a big difference, you can grab the side panel off fleebay. Couldn't do a bottom mounted RAD this time around as I was still a bit n00b with bending tube, I have quite a bit more experience now and would definitely look adding another big boy down below for the CPU loop and maybe fit the res/pump combo up the top with a dedicated fill port.
lolzzz It's radioactive slime...
Dedicated fill and drain ports make my heart sing....
Just buttoned this one up.
Beautiful! Hope they fixed the breathing on the Evolv - the original was a bloody dog for a big rig.
Looks the business mate, love it.
Looks like they've pushed out the front panel a fair bit from the original so hopefully that will help with the intake. Top exhaust still leaves a bit to be desired tho but haven't had a chance to test load temps.
