[Build Log] "Phenomenon" Switch 810+Pedestal

Recommended Posts

Great job of course. I have one main critique though and that's the tubing run from the VRMs to the CPU. No me gusta.. You need to take two 90 degs and put that instead to mend this. Making such build, I would not compromise on the wrong fittings. Truly. :)

Other than that, I don't have other critiques, at least not any that I think are major.

Incredible! Fantastic work mate. I'm like you, have only been really into computers for almost a year now and have just finished my first watercooled rig, loved every minute of it, great fun!

Thank you for the input :) I do have two 90 adapters in hand but I dont like something like that since its too industrial

I wanna keep my theme in place with the bending of the tube

beside, the tube bend for me is the art of the water cooling

so yeah, did it on purpose

again thx for the kind words

Are you going to rotate the logo on the cpu block? I tried with my supremacy earlier. All you need to do is get it of with a small flat head screwdriver, and the adhesive is so strong you can just press it back on :) It looks so much nicer the right way up.

Hmm...something I noticed just now. You didn't end up using the chipset block... why? collision with the rest of the tubing?

yeah, unable to use the south bridge block since it clash with the GPU,

I could make it but it will be very very messy

btw, I LOVE how your project turns out man

seriously what a piece of art

I'm facing the same dilemma actually. The brand who makes the water block for my board (msi z77 mpower) is offering it in two separated blocks as well. I actually inquired if he could make a full block and he said yes but it boosts the price way up. I'm just thinking... what do I "lose" from cooling just the vrms? I mean.. which is more important?

Actually to be totally honest with you I see no gain by cooling the VRAM

Its more for look unless you are going to push your OC to 5+ Ghz , than you will see the difference

but I am very sure , with or without the block on the VRAM , you will not notice any performance difference if you dont go extreme on the OC :)

Nice rig! Random question though: Any idea how much the whole thing weighs? ;)
weighs like alot!

though I can carry it myself, just need a really deep breath before picking it up

but it can seriously injure my back lol

and I need a separate table for it, afraid my hanging table wont hold it good enough

Thanks Julian
