I never realized how tiny my Mobo was until i got a full sized tower... atleast theres room to expand :mrgreen:

After getting the Mobo and gpu secured i mounted the secondary radiator and pump at the bottom of the case where the optional bottom mount fan would mount. For the radiator i used a stand up bracket from xps.

After Mounting everything in the case i started measuring and running the tubing.

Disregaurd the pile of wires as i left it that way to run the leak test... a noob i am not!

With a sucessful leak test under my belt i tucked in all the wires, tidying everything up realizing that i need a full modular PSU.

But the end result is my beast of a machine :twisted:

I think it looks rather awesome with the alien green tubing with the red anti-kink coils on it... looks like something from Dr.Frankenstein :twisted:

After Boot up i ran a test from OpenHardwareMonitor to compare temps:

At idle on my old machine: CPU ran 34c and the GPU ran 45c
While playing SWTOR: CPU ran 45c and the GPU ran 85c
Furmark on air was a joke it immediately maxed out the card at 94c...

At idle on water: CPU ran 32c and the GPU ran 37c
While playin SWTOR: CPU 38c and the GPU ran 53c
And furmark was also at a constant 52-55c.

I didnt expect to see much difference from the cpu but the drop in temp from the graphics card blew me away

Cool Deal. You need to take some pictures of the whole case.
