Thank you for compliments Sirs!

As for the Bigger Case () i do not think i will buy it brand new...already saw those huge Nzxt or Phantek around at bargain prices. Maybe next year.

I'm just too much of an apprentice Driller one!, in that special matter it will be a real waste for me buying brand new!!!

But for now let's enjoy the effects of the coolant system, for sure i am not going back to airflow!

PS: I saw that, the Temp sensor shows me 5C after the loop inside the Rads before returning to the Res Tank...This end of week will be hot around here and that will made a good opportunity to watch-out that setup.

Looks well sweet NoN, you did a real great job!

Heck the case is not tight at all! I am sure you can fit a 2nd GPU in there lol.

Thanks Paul, I am not hiding being proud of myself having build that one water cooling and it had made clearance over the windowed side panel.

Also the bottom case and top are little hidden so PSU cable management that is very towering to me, is the one that gives that filling view.

Nah... A second GPU?

The big matter is that my PSU will not handle it, so the cost is not actual. I also took a hell of good PSU that will last years, i better not think about it!

Thanks!

The card above the PSU is the Creative Sound Blaster Z (Black PCI-e 2.0 x16 set to x2) and above this one i've got a LaCie x4 USB 2.0 PCI Card.

I'm updating a bit this thread with a new IntelBurnTest v2, now that the Tim Paste is ready.

Results are a little better with few degrees won over the first time i ran it post #32. Climatic condition are fairly similar w/Delta room 21C, at idle was 32C and was still using the CPU set to @4,3GHz - 1,224V.

The main change is the 120 Rad added to the loop since first run. I can conclude with three degrees hotter in the room and CPU at idle, i grabbed some C...not that much...but at least it stayed under the primary results with the single 240 Rad.

Worth the upgrade? Beyond the aesthetic & cost is the Water cooling compare to an Air cooler its still a gain over that last one.


PS:
I found back some results @4.2GHz (Official Seven Forums Overclock Leader boards) Post #833 dated from August 31, 2013 and @4,4GHz post #1817 from October 03, 2013 with my previous Aircooler Gelid GX-7 on Push/Pull to compare with this Water. !

So this week i had the opportunity to make some homework...being a bit silly sometimes and far enjoying life!

I was heading to my girlfriend's place when i saw big Plexiglas trays laying on the ground, i picked them up and saw afterward it will turn to be useful for modding a bit.

One was fluorescent orange 5mm thick and the other parts was black & white 3mm thick on their side. Decided that one was for a shroud and the other one for a tray.

Also, i got to complete my water cooling loop and installed a flow indicator (not an electronic one) which gives me an eye to watch out if the pump might stopped and the health of the Loop as i did have no way apart put myself on knees with a torchlight and look at the Reservoir Tank if it does move inside!

BTW, some reported that some 3pin Electronic Flow Indicators were not spinning well at low RPM (1600-2000rpm) therefore not reporting the "Liters (or Gallons) per Hours" correctly, so went simple one.

A pump controller was far too priced for cooling only the CPU anyway.

I had difficulties to find the simple flow indicator Bitspower part and it was also the nicest one with clear material. It turned to be quite demanded and out-of-stock on the online Bitspower site, anyway found it around my country resident place later...

This month of july and this early august were a big watercooling setup adventure with all the traps & tricks and was pretty cool that it turned well without big issues...like size and wrong parts, etc. It had cost me enough for not returning back parts at my cost.

All those are "High Flow" G 1/4 parts and not breaking the coolant.

Thanks to those online retailers for having all those parts at CaseKing, Aquatuning, Pc-Look, DocMicro, Opium-Pc...Guess not all of them as you can see could provide all parts at once and those have their favorite brands too, depending of their customers demands and also slight different prices on some parts.

Spent also a lot of time for the Pc case fans to be well managed at intake and outake. They still are a bit loud and felt them like a jet plane but i knew it before.

I might "mark as solved" that thread because the Loop is completed and i will put results on the appropriate forums sections if ever one is interested by.

Great job, NoN. Very well done. Now you know how much 'fun' you can have building a water cooling loop. How are the temps?

Thank you!

Yes, it was such "Fun"!!!

Well, the CPU Temps are actually between 29C to 32C when loaded on Windows OS @4,3GHz and normal browsing, watching movies, musics...Gaming, i didn't check yet.

I haven't done IBT since the last time i did...but i guess it will reports me nearly the same.
I will have to go on the way to O'cing to see if it does make the real difference between Aircooler, i'm sure it will past the @4,7GHz better as i was hitting TJM 95C when doing it aircooling.

My sensor installed at the output of the Rads gives me 4C to 5C improvement to the coolant after passing through 1st Rad, Cpu, 2nd Rad.

I'm still testing appropriate airflow to improve the all thing! It is yet difficult to see the real improvement straight after that loop install. Fortunately It had been improved but it has to be also confirmed by some further tests.
