Installed today my custom water cooling loop!

So far no probs and everything is working fine, no leaks were found.

I've use 7mm "Shroud & Decoupling" for the 120mm Fans onto the 30mm Radiator to have more of Airflow, and two others 140mm fans on Top of the case, hidden, are on extraction.

DDC Pump is PWM and plug onto CPU_FAN and have to be tuned a little with the Asus Fan XPert+

Its getting late and i'm working tomorrow all day, so i will keep you in touch soon with Temps.

Attached two pics, one when i was filling the Res Tank and the other when installed.

I haven't yet fix the Res Tank onto the Hard Drives cage and it will be about two centimeters higher than on pic.

Also the tubing (10/13mm) will be tighten a little closer to each over , those are brand new so might need time to bend at their places.

I'll post a new pic and share Temps soon.

Cheers!
Looks awesome NoN, very nice mate!
Thanks Paul...that's pretty basic but its first one custom!!
Well it may be basic but it certainly looks great. Very clean looking and neat.

Non you have a neat and clean built. It doesn't have to look cluttered and complicated to work properly.
The most complicated part of building a water cool system is choose the parts and where to install them.

**Verify that the water coming out of the pump is going in the inlet side of the cpu water block.

When i was filling the Res Tank i could saw that direction of the coolant in the tubing with all those bubbles.... I haven't a flow sensor but when i look into the Res Tank through its Acryl Glass i can see the coolant makes vagues but its discrete as i have an anti-bubbles inside.

i frightened myself once when i turned off the PSU during filling because it had a security when turn off twice, the third time it won't start after few minutes...thought it was the pump!!!

Well, happy Water Cooling adventure so far which makes me not regret at all an Aircooler!

Thanks for your inputs, guys!

looks pretty sweet!

FYI, with an H80i, 3770k @ 1.224V @ 4.5GHz, i got temps of 77C on IBT on hottest core.

Hi N00ber! Thanks for having let me know your Temps. I might raise to @4.5GHz just to compare with yours, soon.


PS:
Looks I could have done better if i was using plain distilled water w/silver coil but as its my first setup i didn't wanted to mess it around, so took a "ready to use" solution!

don't blame you.... it looks clean and awesome! I like it!


out of curiosity, how much did all that cost you in the end? I was thinking about doing a water cool project

Not as much as those Kits showed on link of the first page....but what did cost me are the shipping/delivery fees as it was not shipped by regular postage. Also some fees are to apply due to separate warranties.

That's indeed kicking back your bum when you take different parts and not all retailers have the ones you want to have.

I didn't wanted to take one of those ready Kit and after, regret some of the parts provided inside those and buy new ones...which will have surely let me with spare parts!! I did play the game and no regrets

So if you ever want to build your own try as much as possible to take in one time at the same retailer!!

PS:
Those kits are quite on the market for a while now and price have slightly decrease, plus summertime sales make them more affordable.

Some of the kits are actually pretty good. You may need to buy some extra fittings to make it like you want it, but you can get into a custom loop, pretty reasonable.

Non, the drain can be made any way you want it to. Look at the Bitspower T fittings. They are not really that big, and you can do it with a valve like you showed, but I did it with a short tube I could hide with a female quick disconnect on the end. Then you can take a length of tubing and put the male end on it and put it in a box somewhere. If you ever want to drain it, put the extra hose in a bucket and connect the quick disconnects. There are quite a few ways to do it, and some look pretty nice.
