    Temps so far are pretty good id guess. I dont have a direct comparison with a h100i tho. Noise is good aswell, got it at fan speed 5 out of 10. So im geussing thats 50% and I can hear it if i stop playing music or w/e. But thats mostly the fans, Im not hearing the pump

    Build quality is pretty good. It is all attached rock solid, during building it in I swirled it around quite a lot. It is pretty big tho. I still have to figure out a proper way to install it more inside the case. Either have it as an intake or outtake. From what I have been reading it is advised to have the fill part upside (as I have it now). This makes it easier to remove airbubbles if there are any. I havent heard anything like that so far, altho it might happen in the next few weeks.

    I think the pump block looks pretty good. Than again, I dont have to look at it :P

    Just hope the "new smell" will go away soon :P

    For the price of the h220, you can basically get a XSPC WC kit :P

  4. #11424
    Thats another 50 euros overhere, for the cheapest set (out of budget for me). And I didnt want to dabble with WC that much

    This is my first "try" with it, or which it will when I add my gpu in the future. I see the H220 as a gateway for WC for me

    There seems to be reliability issues with the H220.

    @Merc is that an XPSC Rasa kit? Nice blue/black theme.

    As for me, lookie what I got! Yes, that is an a authentic leopard-skin bedsheet that I stripped last week off a real leopard that I came across while journeying across the mountains. Obviously I couldn't pass up that opportunity, chased the motherfucker down (they don't run as fast as shown on TV) and managed to punch it to death.



    Oh and the GTX780 arrived too, I guess.



    Also a tube of Noctua NT-H1 to help push the old i5 2500K to 4.7ghz, because IC Diamond doesn't exist in this country. No matter, NT-H1 is still pretty awesome.



    Good opportunity to clean out the entire rig, dust off the fans, apply the new paste, install the new card, etc...



    This is what I eat to keep myself energized, recommend it to all computer builders. As you can see the grapes and orange chunks are still alive and trying to escape from the bowl, it's best to eat them like that for MAXIMUM vitamanz.



    This shit can clean anything from thermal paste to leopard bloodstains, very handy.



    Goodbye my dear 660 Ti, you did very well. After a bit of dusting it should look good as good as new and ready for auction. It's still got ~2 years of warranty left lol, should be an easy sale for at least $350-400 NZD (yes, graphics cards are expensive here :P).



    Finished rig, everything plugged in and desk area vacuumed up...




    Lots of overclocking to do tomorrow, my 2500K is pretty meh requiring 1.36-1.37v for 4.7ghz stable. Needs fine turning.
    The 780 reached 1200mhz core and 1750mhz memory easily, I'll be using Heaven 4.0 to do some benching but ultimately it'll be my games which determine stability.

    Congrats on the GPU, Xuvial. Pretty awesome cable management, as well!

    Yap, I hope to avoid upgrading for at least 2 years with this. Hmm that's kind of unnerving considering the cost...maybe I'll try to push it for 3+ years. Who knows :P

    I guess cable management is really something people need to do once and do it well. Once the main cables are secured to where they should be, the rest of the rig can be constantly upgraded (other than PSU :P) while keeping the cables tidy.

    If it's fully modular then you can replace the PSU without any problems.

    BLAH, I wish. Only if it's from the exact same brand and preferably the exact same series/model line-up.

    For the most part PSU companies use their own modular connectors. They look the same at first glance but there are tiny differences that will stop them from being inter-compatible...even if it's from the same freaking manufacturer who is designing the base units (so mostly Seasonic lol). You will occasionally come across some X cables that plug into Y PSU, but that isn't intentional or standardized in any way, just luck.

    It's a bit of a bitch because if modular cables were 100% standardized then I would've ordered Corsair's sleeved cables a long time ago for my Seasonic
    The alternative to that is NZXT's sleeved cable extensions, but that's only a halfway-solution because you'll still have your standard cables sprouting out of your PSU...not to mention trying to hide all that extra cable length behind the sidepanel, would be a nightmare.

    All in all a poor submission to the greater good picture contest.

    But honestly, on topic, lovely. Congrats.

    About the 660 Ti... just how much do they sell for new? O.o

    I guess I'll throw my build on here. Don't mind the psu as the alternative was for it to go on a dog hair diet (it's shedding season again!).



    And then after I decided I wanted to blind myself...



    And then after I decided a beer would go great with my computer...



    Don't mind the naga as it recently passed away (RIP in peace) as well as the desk as my new desk has arrived and won't be put together til we move into our new house. I guess I should include a part list.

    cpu: I5-4670k
    mobo: Asus z87-a
    cpu cooler- antec kuhler h2o 620
    ram: corsair vengeance red 8gb 1866mhz
    graphics card- Asus geforce gtx 770
    psu: corsair hx 750 semi-modular
    ssd: samsung 840 120gb
    hdd: seagate momentous 500gb x2 (salvaged them from a dead laptop)
    optical drive: asus dvd brive
    beer: Sam Adams Cherry Wheat lager (cause I have a sweet tooth)
