    I'm thinking about sleeving my cables all white to match the inside of my case, but being about to replace the PSU in about a month I really don't want to do it twice lol. Guess it'd be good practice though. And I still need to work on the backside as I did what I could to keep it organized back there, but I still need to put force to get the back panel on .

    Finally got my GPU back, so I decided to make a new pic, now with all the parts in it.



    Had to move my soundcard because of the gpu reactor thingie, which is probably just a gimmick anyways...



    Pretty creative heat fin shapes aswell...

    Temps went from 98°c in furmark to 55°c.

    Well the bend on that heat fin looks more like a manufacturing error.

    It's fine, my 580 also has some slightly bent fins where the screws attach. It probs has zero difference on performance/temps.

    Finally assembled it, couldn't be arsed thursday/friday, feels like a $50 chair, guess I'm not buying from Jysk again.

    Still need to return the motherboard, but it's hard when you don't have the motherboard box, got no car & the nearest post office is 45 minuttes away.

    In preparation of my 1st attempt at custom water cooling, i spent 4 hours a couple days ago cleaning the system for dust, re-cabling the system and Throwing out 2x 2.5 inch HDDs to make space.

    Feel free to request more images.

    Did you get a waterblock yet? The GTX 470 waterblocks are pretty much not being produced anymore, I think.
    DigitalImpuls.no have it though, it seems. Only the plexi nickel one though.

    My plans are as follows:
    1. Set up a loop for the CPU, using a 200x200mm radiator and the MCP655 water pump.

    2. Crossfire 7970s or Sli 670s

    3. Cut out the top of the case to fit in a 360x120mm radiator in the top and add the two GPUs in the loop.

    The 470 may get in the way of the Pump/Reservoir because of the closed loop kit sticks very far out towards the HDD trays. So i may have to borrow a 6870 from a friend (he has a short version) until i can get my hands on a 670/7970.

    If you know you're gonna run Crossfire HD 7970s, I'd try and get my hands on the original waterblocks for them. The new CSQ blocks are fine and all, but require additional stuff to connect several cards.

    ---------- Post added 2012-08-26 at 09:29 PM ----------

    Just so you know... sometimes you get lucky with radiators. Lol.
    Terribly sorry for the flash light and shit, hard to get a picture of it otherwise.


    Anyway, I'm currently running a loop in my 650D.

    Absolutely gorgeous Drunken, looks like a lot of fun to build in.

    The water effect with that coolant is awesome.

    How much did the cooling system cost you?

    With the bits I couldn't actually use in the end, and the bits I opted not to use, I paid ~7k NOK total. The costliest piece was the pump/res combo, which in the end I don't especially like due to the droning noise in the video.

    Picked up a MSI 670 GTX Power Edition for $375, Horray. The thing is a BEAST.. I love it.

    Got the rest of my parts in (new fans for the H100).

    Cleaned up the back of my case... a few times... Couldn't get the back panel on, so I had to move things around..
    the TX750 from corsair... even tough I got it 4+ years ago, and works fine... has too many extra wires I can't hide and they are starting to get annoying..


    Lost track after 50 tie wraps.. and trimmed them up



    That blue fan is only a place holder because I lost one of my dust guards in the back.

    Built a computer to my girlfriend this weekend. She has been stuck with the same POS for over five years now so I felt she deserved a new one.



    Specifications:
    • Cooler Master Elite 430
    • ASRock B75 Pro3
    • G860 3.0GHz
    • Samsung 830 64GB
    • Optilac DVD RW +/-
    • Corsair Value 2x2GB
    • XFX Radeon HD 6870
    • Antec VP450

    A very budget oriented build throughout. The Elite 430 was a bit of a hit and miss. No proper SSD mount and no space between the motherboard tray and the back-panel (at all), but it was cheap. I will say though that my expectations for the Double Dissipation cooler wasn't too high, but it performed admirably - especially since the card was less than 1400 SEK.

    Build itself was around 3500 SEK, including the SSD but excluding her previous HDD. She wanted purple LEDs throughout the chassis but had to "make do" with the blue LED fan. Might get her some red and blue LED-strips later for a nice purple shine.

    I also got some nice stuff for myself but I'll get to that once my order arrives.
