Windows 7: When you think about custom computer.

When you think about custom computer.

For those that are thinking of making your own custom build and custom water cooling.
I believe those that have already built their system will enjoy.

I have found a series of 4 videos that I think you will enjoy and learn from.
I don't necessary like the products chosen but that will be up to each builder.

Homework a term I use a lot. What do I mean? Research and study of your build. This can take a lot of time if you have no one with experience to help you. The more time you take with your homework will save you a lot of time and money.

Learning and then doing cable sleeving cables and harness can take many hours. You can order special made to order sleeved cables or you can watch many videos to help you learn how to do it yourself. Homework.

Bending tubing doesn't take so long to learn but one will make a little scrap. So buy extra tubing. I learned using a tubing cutter is much better for cutting tubing rather than a saw. Unlike the videos I do like as much as possible 90 deg bends and every tube to be level and plum. It will take some trial and error. No funny angles and dangles. They do make kits so you can get exact angles.You can use a lot of fittings to create your angles for your tubing but it will raise the price a huge amount. Plus it will clutter up your system. When done all you will notice is fitting all over the place. When you price out fittings you will understand what I mean. Each to their own on that matter. That is why we call it a custom build. Once again homework, watching videos on tubing bending will help in the learning curve.

Of course it takes some extra money to build your own custom water cooled system.
It only takes time and desire to do everything neat and orderly. So don't get in a big hurry.

Great info Jack

Some of the new plug and play options
This is one of the new beasts in town :)
Hydro GFX Liquid Cooled Graphics Card

This seems to be one of the popular cpu coolers too
Hydro Series™ H110i GT 280mm Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

These aren't nearly as pretty as doing a custom loop but install time you can't beat the plug and play :)

Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
Hopefully it will give some guidance to those thinking about building their own system.

It's really not hard to do if one just does a little homework.

Yes a AIO cooler might just be the right choice for many and now with the added cooler to video cards even give more
options that should be looked into. More homework.
