    OK so with Clockers help I am going to attempt my first WC rig. I am going to cool the CPU and GPU when I get the stuff I will post pics OC

    In looking at others setups to get an idea of how I want it to look I saw some great rigs so I decided to post them here.




    Wow a water cooled ram kit!?




    Hmmmm seems a bit much to me though.

    It is.
    I think you'll find that assembling your first loop will be challenging enough without slathering steampunk all over it.
    As with many mechanical/engineering exercises, creating the seemingly "simple" is the hardest thing to do.

    I'd recommend you first install the CPU and GPU waterblocks (and the tubing that connects them), mount the motherboard in the case and then ponder the location of the rad, pump and reservoir.

    Oh I don't think I would even want something like this IMHO I think it would be more trouble than it would be worth.

    As far as the rad goes I came across these.

    Siverstone RadSupport09


    It allows to mount the rad on the top of the case. What do you think?

    Here is the product page with a flash animation showing what I mean.

    But I cannot find dimensions to know if this bracket or the rad you recommended will work this way. It seems the case has 2 fans on top but the rad is supposed to have 3. do you think it's too long to fit there?

    One of those guys use the Rad brackets and it seems to work well.

    those setups are quite easy to do, ive helped my mate w/c his pc and it was'nt that hard.
    Though they can get stupidly complicated if you want them to

    Call me Dummy!!!

    Im going to cool the CPU, GPU, Northbridge, southbridge, and Mosfet. 5Hit if my kid stops running around I might watercool him too!!!

    The more pics the better man thanks I could use all the ideas I can get.

    A very special thanks goes out to clocker for all of his ongoing help. I know I can be annoying at times with all the questions but he is always here to help.

    I suspect that before this is done you'll hate watercooling in general and me in specific.
    Your wife and kids will despise you and might well leave.
    You'll have spent way more money than you thought possible and certainly more than most would consider reasonable.
