Description

My 1st watercooling loop added to my latest machine: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/CBy#img=8

No graphics due to budget constraints.

Will be testing higher overclocks now but currently idling at ambient. Fluid is Mayhems UV green and i would love to add a cold cathode in the near future.

why the case??? it seems like one of those weird off brand cases

For a relatively unknown maker the air flow is nice, it has a nice design that matches my build and does what I need it to do at a fraction of the price of other cases.

Nicely done. A neatly done water cooling loop is hard to beat. Do you plan to add your GPU to the loop as well?

I think I will but i'm keeping my options open firstly. Currently at 4.5Ghz on 1.2Vcore with load temps of 68-70.

If you do choose to add the GPU to the loop, please add extra pics. Would love to see it.

I will. firstly i need to stability test and lower vcore. 1.182 right now, load down to 60c. it might not be perfect but its more rewarding than just buying a "water cooling AIO". We are here to learn right? :) i would reccomend anyone to build a small loop to get an understanding of it. just from this build I have worked out many areas I could expand my next setup and make improvements.

No GFX but a custom loop? Love custom loops but they cost more than a good GFX card in most cases.

I could of gotten a 660 Ti and an air cooler for the price of my setup. I do have extra tubing and valves sat in a box for when the right gfx and right gpu block fall into my possession. It's whisper quiet however which is great.

Save up for a hydro copper... You'll waste a ton of money, but you'll have a limited edition card that's... Limited edition!

How is the PSU holding up? Do you think that once you add your GPU that you will have to get a bigger one?

PSU is doing great, it stays mostly in fanless mode as the power being drawn isn't very high. I am sure adding a nice GPU will bump that somewhat. under 100% load it still wouldn't come on.

Nice looking to water cool a pc also but didn't know how much power i needed for the system

Man, you got more lucky than Apple's revenue division with that 4770K

Does your front panel mic work with your sniper m5? Mine doesn't recognise my microphone. :(

This build reminds me of Bane from old-school Batman (not the dark knight Bane).
