Here's to hoping! If it's DOA, I WILL FIND YOU.

For now, the massive pile of thermal crap has been polished off. Next comes some adequate cooling.

@Inik:

Where's the part list ? It's been 11 days!!!

I ragequit when I tried shoving my AX360 into the H440, fucking thing would not fit ANYWHERE. I gave up and returned it. Due to the Cosmos not having a window I skipped my original plan of using purple dye in the distilled to make up for the lack of purple tubing. ANYWAYS, parts list is as follows:

Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II >:(CPU: 3770k @ 4.5GHzMotherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu Black Series (2x 8GB)PSU: Kingwin Lazer 1000W (4 years old and still goin strong)GPU: Asus R9 290X <- Boner material right there.Sound Card: Auzentech ForteOptical Drive: Hah, this isn't 1998.

Storage:2x Corsair Force GS 240GB in RAID0Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB for Photoshop and Lightroom2x Hitachi 5k3000 2TBSeagate LP 2TB (Backup)

Water stuff:CPU Block: EK Supreme HF Full NickelGPU Block: XSPC Razor R9 290/290X with matching backplateRadiator: XSPC AX360 Black (3x 1850RPM Gentle Typhoons)Pump: MCP355 w/ EK res top (Before they stuck the stupid circles all over everything)Fittings: Bitspower matte black 7/16ID 5/8ODTubing: XSPC high-flex tube - white

I'll get some full rig pictures soon. For now this will have to do (with a bit of review material teasing ;) ):

@gingerbee:

wow lp really late on posting those pics eh lol

No kidding. I gave up on it since I completely failed at doing everything I had wanted to. Next build will be proper. This one was crap and was thrown together just well enough to work. Didn't help that the PSU and my pump died in the meantime.

@Arinoth:

Man he's getting lazier then Supa these days!

Pfft. You buy me a new rig and see how fast it gets put together, and how many pictures you get. This old rig is hitting 2.5 years old for the mobo/CPU/RAM. Hard to care :P

With the Gentle Typhoons running at 7V, idle is only averaging about 6C above ambient. (26C CPU, 28C GPU) Full load on CPU and GPU is topping out at 64C and 46C respectively. GPU is first in the loop so that explains a bit of the higher CPU temps. If I crank them to 12V it's only a couple of degrees so I'd rather have the noise reduction of 7V.

I decided that the 27" was just not working for me, plus the 1070 is already struggling with just the 3440x1440 resolution, so I pulled it and my monitor arm.
