Description

The second picture is of my reservoirs water temperature and it shows the switch that I modded (if you can call it that), it controls the dual blue cathodes in the case and is located right under the handle for the case! I love how it turned out and loved building it, it is primarily for gaming but I do use it for internet things as well. One thing I am going to change later on is the GPU, I will probably get a reference GTX 970 so I can add it to my cooling loop. Might add a second set of the same fans along with a second radiator on the bottom once that goes in.

The Water cooling loop was about $400 which consisted of a Monsoon Series 2 Reservoir with an Alphacool D5 pump, an XSPC EX 240 radiator, some XSPC chrome low profile compression fittings, and some Primochill Primoflex Advanced LRT 3/8 ID 1/2 OD elegant white tubing. I just used some good ol' distilled water with some of Primochill's liquid utopia bomb.

Nice build, pretty similar to one I would like to build on my own. Have you looked for "All-in-one" watercooling kit from Alphacool? They have their "Cool Answer" lineup which is premium quality at reasonable pricing and if you're first time building a watercooling rig, it has everything (except GPU block). Impressive temps at stock clock, have you undervolt your hardware?

I couldn't tell you specs and I amd surely not an expert, but I can tell you that it does look really nice, came packaged very well, and it seems to handle the higher data transfer speeds for my SSD. But there is one thing that kind of bothered me, and that was the faceplate for all of the ports/connections looks a little off to me, but I could have installed it wrong or it could just be my tastes. And everything seems to fit very nicely on it, despite having somewhat of a wide cpu waterblock, it clears the heatsink of the motherboard and the ram quite well. I can tell you its pretty sturdy on account of me applying a stupid amount of pressure while trying to get the main 24 pin connector to click.
