  1. That build initially looked absolutely bada$$. Can't wait to see how the upgrade turns out.
  2. Regardless how it came out, kudos for taking the plunge and doing a hard line loop. I'd just paint the red accents a matching green. Paining the mobo is actually easy, those red parts are all easily detachable. And while you have it apart, adjust the length in the runs in a way to get them all to be at right angles, parallel and perpendicular to each other etc.
  3. I did some minor case mods on my Corsair 760t and upgraded the cooling loop. Specs: Don't laugh at the channel or video quality (or lack thereof). The channel and the videos are intended to be a place for me to share my geekly endeavors, not to be a professional production or anything. Why Plog when you can Vlog, right? Here is a photo log of the initial build before the upgrades: Btw: Plumber butt is not just limited to plumbers!
  4. It looks fine to me. Typically though the copper corrodes the aluminum. Take a look around the inlets of the radiators.
  5. Love the avatar! In regards to flow: yes folks will say that pump speed doesn't really matter and that is true to an extent but they are referring to D5 and equivilant pumps that have flow rates like this: And even then there is a difference of a couple of degrees between max and min pump speeds. In an SFF build the odds are already against you with airflow, then the poorer heat dissipation of aluminum radiators is another hit. Yeah, you could probably get away with it but you won't be happy with your temps, you'll have little or no room for overclocking and you'll end up redoing it again in the future. My point just is, if you're gonna go water, make it worth while. Otherwise you just have a system that cools like air but has the risks of water. Anymahoo that's my 2 cents and I still look forward to seeing this system come together!
  6. Wow, that's really low flow. It makes a D5 look like a garden hose lol. Maybe one of these will fit? http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c85/s1703/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-Water_Blocks_CPU-CPU_BlockPump_Combo-Page1.html
  7. I would. Better safe than sorry. EK only sells copper and brass based components, so I would bet that's what their coolants are geared for. A thought that comes to mind is using automotive coolant since you see a lot of cars with both aluminum and copper in the same system. Think old muscle cars with copper core radiators and aluminum heads on suped up engines, or more modern cars with aluminum everything but a copper heater core etc. I have never done a mixed loop and I am by no means a chemist, I just know that without some special considerations in the coolant, there will be corrosion problems with aluminum and copper in the same loop. Cars get away with it because of the coolants they use and AIOs get away with it because they use propylene glycol. Here is a good read that goes into it, in a bit more detail: http://www.overclockers.com/pc-water-coolant-chemistry-part-ii/.
  8. I look forward to seeing this come together. I love seeing folks mod and improvise, especially when it comes to jamming things into SFF builds. The only consideration I would mention is to use some sort of propylene glycol coolant because most AIO coolers have aluminum radiators, so there will be a mix of aluminum and copper in the same loop. From my understanding that's the way the AIO OEMs get away with it.
  9. That's one hell of a badass first build. Good job! How are you liking it so far?
  10. The desk is a black Galant with chrome legs from Ikea. All the water cooling stuff is EK purchased from a local Micro Center. Much cooler. Before my 1080 would peak in the low to mid 80s with the default fan profile and my CPU would push up into the low 90s (at 4.4 GHz 1.26v). Now my GPU stays in the 40s and my CPU stays under 70 under full stress testing. Idle is way down too, the GPU idles at 31/32 and the CPU idles in the high 20s. And it does all that with a fan curve that peaks my Noctuas at a cap of 70%.
  11. Here is the photo log of my upgrade to a full custom loop. Part 1 Part 2 - I decided to re-do the tube that was in front of the reservoir. The whole setup
  12. That's my thought. My temps are low enough, I am just considering a dynamic multiplier with an offset or adaptive voltage to add some life to the chip.
