good stuff. That PC-ICE stuff is meh, I used pentosin G11 and put a drop of PT nuke in there and have been running mines for about 8 months just fine. Tubes are still clear and everything looks clean. I used 9 parts distilled water, 1 part G11 mix, gave a nice blue color and temps are good. Got it really cheap from Petra's as well, I wouldn't pay $20 for that stuff. Looks like it will build up in your GT..

what was the reasoning of going with the GT instead of the GTX or Fuzion? The latter two blocks provide a little better cooling performance for quads.

good tubing, I think I paid less for my Tygon R3606 :lol:

what case are you using? I would have recommended a Thermochill PA120.3 over the swiftech, Thermochills are in a class of their own... if I wasn't so stubborn and didn't have to have everthing mounted inside my case-thats the radiator I would have gone with, sadly the MCR220 was the only rad that would fit.

everything you got looks great man, it seems as if you know what you are doing. Post up some pics of the work in progress for all of us to admire :D

I think im going to end up getting a TEC but dont have the money at the moment to get it and all my games coming out next week.

The MCR320 is alot cheaper for now. And I would have a better chance getting it to fit.

I use an old Chieftec Matrix MX so not alot of room to work with. I have to cut a new hole for the power supply and replace the support rails. Ill make it all fit though.

The last box should arrive tuesday the 6th. Ill be sure to take lots of pics. Thanks for the feedback and tips with the water.

Note* Temp PSU, CPU, and Memory, I sold them all and will be getting a QX9650 very very soon.



The rest of the stuff will get here tomorrow. And yes I have black flake paint. I will be painting the inside of my case Black. I will keep this up to date.

I hope the GT is enough. Penryn runs cool so you should be aight.

I would use the larger O-ring on the GT when you install it...will bow the base slightly and will give you better temps.

Yep.

I hope the GT is enough. Penryn runs cool so you should be aight.

The GTs just to get me by for a few weeks untell I have enough for my TEC. If the 9650 didnt cost 1200ish I would have the TEC now.

Yea I was looking at that when I opened it. Thats what I figured I would do.

I have it all gutted and have to go find my drill so I can get started on cutting. I did paint a few parts already. Ill get more pictures in a bit.

are you using a rotary tool like a dremel?

remember to use eye protection!

use masking tape and mark the areas that you are going to cut and drill so that you know exactly what you are doing as you are doing it :lol:

Extremely professional work there. The 120.3 rad looks sweet with that grill and LED fans.

The section of the rad above the PSU -- looks like there's no room for it to breathe. Lighting is poor though, so I can't really tell. Do you have the fans set to push, or pull?

Great job on the painting.

Can't believe you spent that much on a CPU though.

Holy crap. :o

Holy crap. :o I dont have it yet. I wont have it untell the 20th. Im using my old E4300 to get me by untell the 20th.

Yea just looked back at them pics. Heres one for you. If you didnt notice I had to cut a new hole to lower the PSU and give the Rad enough room. If you look at some of the other pictures (before and after paint) You can see what I cut. I also took out the support bars.

Edit: And its pushing the air into the case.

My order got messed up so kinda sucked.
First off one of my UV lights broke in shipping. 2nd off I was given steel blue dye when I wanted UV dye. And I didnt get all my clamps I ordered.

So... I ordered more stuff. Should be here tomorrow.

1 x PP Heavy Duty Zip Ties 7-8" (ZIPTIE-8)
Zip Tie Color Neon Blue
2 x Reuseable Clamps - For 1/2" Tubing (3/4" O.D.) - Red (CLAMP-1/2-RD)
1 x UV Water Dye-Lite - UV Blue (UVDYE-BL)
4 x Adjustable Cable Clamp for Wiring with Adhesive Bottom 3/4in - Black (ADJ-CLAMP)
1 x 12'' Cold Cathode Add-on Tube Sleeved - Ultraviolet (TUBEUV12)
Sleeve Color Neon UV Blue
Heatshrink Color UV Blue








I put this togeather so I can play gears. This is not what it will look like finished. I will have more lighting and better cable management. I also plan on changing the outside appearance of the case.

Anyway here are a few more pictures of what it currently looks like.

Dude, if you go TEC you're gonna brutally assault that PSU. All that heat will be pushed right into that area. I don't think there's much room for the rad to breathe, even for regular water cooling conditions. How are your temps?

I'd go for a different case (http://www.xpcgear.com/lianlipcg70b.html).

Naa the airflow is fine. The rad is cold to the touch. The power supply blows out not just cool but cold air. (its very cold in my room too). My cpu at 3.6Ghz runs at 26c idle. Its only one fan that is even slightly covered. Its got 3/4 of an inch of space but blows the air out the back 3/4" by 5" vent above the PSU. The front of my case is also open. Ill have to get a tempature tester to show you.

Heres another pic.
