Let's see how many converts can you make out of this thread. I, for one, am a full fledged W/C fan. This thread gave me the little push I needed to take the plunge. Most importantly, thanks to this thread, now I'm broke. :(

lol. Just JK!


I am just plain broke at the moment, so I don't even get the joy of watercooling, or buying aluminium for continuing the TJ07 mod :(

Hey, look on the bright side, you're better off broke now then before. If you were broke before buying that TJ, you wouldn't be able to have it for your next build, especially at that price. ;)

Haha granted. But it still looks at me and begs for me to build it... I don't like letting people (and objects in this case) down. :(

Just to make everyone excited about WC'ing...

I present you with a new product from Aqua Computer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpt9vtAib2w&feature=player_embedded

Especially around the 40 second mark! Also watch it on Youtube, it's easier to see the fountain effect!

Another thing that I want to show is:

Murderbox MKII. Click that link, scroll down to the bottom of the page, then gawk at that beautiful res+res holder, and how lovely it looks! Convinced me to go for a long res!

OMG... Can't wait for Aqua Computer to make a longer version of their new res so I can add both these together and incorporate them into the new build :D Even if they don't do a 500ml res, I guess I will just have to go with Ek's res (one used in Murderbox) :(

Was just reading about it on OCN. Hey S0up, why don't you post some pics of the new Mayhem's dye while you're at it. ;)

EDIT: By the way, they should change their name to Aqua(rium) Computer. We've been using their pumps, their technologies (aquarium), etc. What's next? A vivarium in a PC case? Haha... JK though.

W/C is good and all but it's so ADDICTIVE! lol I haven't even started putting it together and I'm loving it. I made another mistake of not measuring the distance between the two GPU blocks, so I had to place another order. Let this be a lesson to all beginners, get all your measurements sorted before ordering. In my defence, it was the wee hours in the morning when I ordered them. Too lazy to update the log, but will update it once the shipment arrived. Teaser: Phobya 200mm rad, 120x32mm PWM fans, etc.

S0up, what do think about the Swiftech Apogee II pump+block? I almost ordered it but thought I need more rad surface than more flow. What do you reckon? Cheers.

Haha will do! Which one are you talking about? The new Chameleon one? Or the new Aurora dye?

Lol I would not be surprised if that hasn't been done in some way! Maybe in a server room! haha

What are you doing for between the GPUs? SLI links, or just tubing? And I find that there is a fairly crucial adage when talking about measurements, measure twice cut once. Make sure of stuff twice! Haha I really should apply that to my assignments!

And why the Phobya Rad? I thought you had a handful o' rad already?

It's a very cool idea. Would save space, and means that you would be able to eliminate another link in the loop. However, I just don't like the aesthetics of it, so if I was using it, I would be building a shroud for it. And besides that I haven't seen any benchmarks so I don't know how effective it would be.

But it is very cool that is PWM!

The pearly Aurora dye. It makes me think of this. Next time you're at Countdown, pick up a bottle and you'll know what I mean.

Rookie mistake! Yes, the SLI link/bridge. The XSPC's is for 1 slot spacing, but my Sabertooth's got 2 PCI slots between 'em. So, I had to order two of these.

Yes, but when you need to ditch out another ~$40-50 for shipping, why not? Besides, it's the most popular combination of rads in the 650D: 240/280 + 120 + 200. All installed inside. Yet, another rookie mistake. :(

But it is very cool that is PWM!


It's the same MCP-35X on top of that block. :)

And besides the Aurora dye is only a show dye. But saying that you when you filter it out a specific way (using a coffee plunger filter) it becomes X1 coolant! How cool is that!

I might get some X1 UV blue/ yellow and blue and make me some lime green! :D

Why another rookie mistake?

In terms of not thinking about the SLI bridge, maybe... Just a slip of the mind, nothing big. But not knowing what rads fit best, definitely not a rookie mistake. Just someone that hadn't looked at excessive amounts of build logs. So take it you are going something like 240>CPU>120>GPU1>GPU2>200>res>pump>240?

Woah, that is a lot of Rad! Saying that MOAR rad is always needed! haha Now my single 480 is looking a touch under powering!

It's the same MCP-35X on top of that block. :)


Oh dang, I meant to say the MCP-35X. :(

Haha maybe I should read them over before posting them... Meh, that's something for future s0up2up to think about haha...

Beat me to it again. Was just reading that on the forum. Since we're talking about coolant, here's another useful article on the topic.

Rookie or not, I now have two SLI bridges sitting here with no use. :( My plan: Res > Pump > 200 > GPU > GPU > 120 > CPU > 240. If I go 240 first, the flow'll be against the gravity. It'll also need some sharp turn fittings which add further restriction to the loop.

I'm pretty sure your TJ is MORE accommodating than my 650D. ;P

Same pump but the flow is a lot different from a standalone pump. The CPU block is super restrictive?



Sorry for going OT. I hope my link should help bringing it back to topic. lol

Sounds like a good plan... Haha my flow is poentially going to be against gravity anyways. Still have to draw up plans for the loop, but at this stage it is going to be like that...

I'm pretty sure your TJ is MORE accommodating than my 650D. ;P


Haha I would hope so! It is bigger!

Yeah, that point about the flow makes a bit of sense I guess. But I don't think it would be that much different.
The CPU blocks don't tend to be excessively restrictive to start off with. The most restrictive things, tend to be the GPU blocks, hence why most people but them in parallel.

OT? Who cares, pretty sure it's only a handful of people that read this thread, and even less who post. Pretty sure it's just you and me haha

You, sir, are wrong. Josh is reading it too. lol

BTW, where do kiwis go for general PC discussion? It's awfully quiet at OCN (NZ club). Or, simply because Kiwis don't socialize? I know after this build I'll be happily gaming away... :)

Before I start my W/C build, I'd like to post this quote from someone on the OCN:

My personal take on water-cooling:
Water-cooling is a chaotic, never-ending, emotional roller-coaster. It's akin to falling in love with your worst enemy. It's an addiction that constantly keeps one wavering upon the tight-rope of separation between sanity and blissful ignorance. It's the adrenaline-filled excitement of a UPS or FedEx delivery, soon quelled by the heartache of an RMA, an excessive electric bill, or worse - the disdainful attitude of a significant other. It's hours upon hours of decisions and careful planning that often are thwarted within seconds of implementation. It's the culminating pinnacle in a pursuit of greater performance, which undoubtedly will also be the inexhaustible beginning of yet another, longer, more costly endeavor. Water-cooling is a story with more than one climax, an infinite story line, but never an ending...


Make you think twice before going full W/C, but for some it's the motivation they need to get into W/C. :D

Hmm.. Pricespy forums.. Why didn't I think of that while looking for water cooling advice?

Anyway! I just jumped in and put my first loop together last weekend. Was a lot of fun and I'm glad I did it. Hopefully I haven't made too many mistakes!

I guess I'll make a thread about my build when I get home from work. Seems to be what people do around here? heh

Haha lets be honest, this isn't the biggest forum ever, and lots of forums don't have watercooling discussion haha... I'm glad our little bit of Cyber Territory has though...

Doubt you would of, just make sure that you let it leak test for like 24ish hours, and that way you can be certain you shall be mint...

Yeah, they totally do, especially when it is in regards to WC'ing :D

PriceSpy is actually such an awesome idea. It's a shame our stores aren't quite as awesome as those in the UK v_v

typical their version just comes out and its already way better :(

Yep, they've got far more products available than we do, and plenty more stores as well. I guess that is fair enough though, as they have a significantly higher population than NZ.

Their forum has very little activity yet though, so we're still up on them on that front... That'll change though due to their afore-mentioned population.

Kinda like when you have a Lambo and there're no decent roads around to push it.

Lambo = PriceSpy (great tool)
Roads = Stores
