    Hey all i am bk with new bits and bobs and yes i have finally w/c'ed my pc it's looking fairly cool (excuse the pun).

    So yer i have changed the PSU to a corsair 620W, the mobo from that shit box win fast to a Asus crosshair 590 gaming mobo and i got my zalman res1 v2!!!!

    Anyways took all the bits out of my pc n that and scrapped everything i could of my old mobo which was only the ram and the CPU.

    I do apologise for the shacky pics i should of used i house mates camera but really couldn't be assed going upstaris to get it. anyways the mobo



    the PSU looking very sexy



    the very black and suprising big water tower, it's nearlly two foot tall!!!



    and the bits and bobs that came with it



    i also bought some new water coolant as i didnt want blue in my case again so i decided to go with green and get some nice UV cathodes in there

    The water cooling kit was stupidly easy to set up, the only problems that i had is that the hose it self aint the standard 3/8 or 1/2, so i couldnt get any clips for it. Luckily the seals are tight and zalman give you some metal clips which fit pretty snuggly.

    Ive shot the tower right next to my window, thought it would be a good place to get decent temps and i was very much right!!! cores were floating around 22C bearing in mind that was idle. Ive also got the GPU hooked up aswell and that's floating around 34C last time i checked so that pretty decent

    Here are some shots ive just done now, but it looks so good when it's in the dark





    i still need to sort out some of the hosing like and also i need to stress test the CPU so i know what kind of cooling i really have i'll take some more pics tonight when it's dark and i'll take the side of the case off

    The cable management i still need to sort out but having a modular PSU makes life so much easier

    anyway let me know what ya think.

    As I've said previously, I'm intrigued by this setup and very interested in your results.
    I assume you're using the Zalman blocks on the C/GPU?

    How are you monitoring the temps?

Im monitoring the temps through everest if i want i can put lil thermistors in or on the tank. atm it's pretty warm cos the sun is shinning on the tank.

    Where is it being kept now/permanently? Where did you find the room to put everything in there?

    atm it's still on the window ledge, figured that glass is always cold so i put it next to it. Erm the modular PSU freed up alot of room so i could stuff in. I still need to a lil bit more cable managment and also some modification to the mobo tray so i can get5 more wires behind it.
    It's working out really well

    Although your window location may not be ideal during summer months- a lot depends on how much direct sunlight it gets- it should be great during the winter.
