So this will be my first liquid cooled PC,

My current pc's setup
CPU i5-2500k @ 4.0GHz
Motherboard ASRock Z77 Extreme3
Case Cooler Master Elite 430
PSU OCZ ZT 750
GPU EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked w/ ACX Cooling
Storage Seagate 2TB
Storage Kingston SSDNow 128Gb
2 Acer 24" IPS Monitors

I have purchased a ton of new gear to replace most of the old stuff:

INWIN GRone White Full Tower Case
An additional GTX 770 for SLI
Corsair AX860 Power Supply
3 Gentle Typhoon AP-14's
2 XSPC Raystorm 770 Waterblocks
XSPC Raystorm AX240 Kit including-

  • ■ AX240 Radiator
    ■ D5 Photon 170 Pump/Reservoir
    ■ Raystorm CPU Waterblock
    ■ 6 Compression fittings
    ■ Clear Tubing
    ■ a bunch of white/blue LED's
    ■ applicable hardware etc.
I Have gotten everything over the past few days except for the case, which I expect tomorrow or the next day.









I have started to plan out the loop as well.

I have two main ideas in mind, of which I have drawn up a fun little diagram for each.

I favor the first one, but think it might get a bit crowded above the video cards, it also means I would have to sell the 240 radiator I have and get a new 360 & 120.

The second plan would be easier on the turns and provide a bit more cooling power, but I'm concerned the 240 radiator on the bottom could interfere with the power supply and it's cables.






Soon as I get my case, I'll mess around with the placement of each component and figure out exactly how I'm going to do this.

More pics and updates to follow!
