    pump is a ddc ultra. the one up from the ddc plus (600l/h) its coping just fine if anything its slightly to powefull for the loop. it will shoot the water about 15cm out the res with out the lid on

    *sings* I like big... bore and I cannot lie! :D Sorry, USA joke (or at least I hope that our bad rap has not spread everywhere :worried: ).

    This is amazing, a pure example of the epitome of watercooling. No RAM blocks, no mosfet blocks, no ridiculous false floors, bulkheads, or tubing everywhere. They have their place, yes, but not here. This is the type of fine machine you see in trade shows to demonstrate a component, or perhaps in a magazine as an all-too-perfect example. You must know what I am saying. Those types of computers where you see no wires, no components, just the sleek drool-worthy-ness? That's what I'm talking about, and that's what I see. Simply. Freaking. Amazing. :thumb: to you, because you my friend, are an artiste. My dad has been complaining about watercooling, the typical complaint "It's too messy, more things in the case, looks bad." Well, this thread will soon be shown to him, and his jaw will reside on the floor just as mine does. You deserve lots and lots of money for this.

    I thought the Cascade SS had a plexi top? That modified in any way? If so, is it just cosmetic?

    You really getting 5 degrees less than the TDX? I may have to invest in one if that's true.

    It does, sk4mpi is using a custom A64 mounting bracket for it as the block only comes in Socket A and 478 (iirc) flavours :) I've heard you can order a bracket from Cathar himself, I imagine making your own would be much cheaper.

    Paul made that top for me, there are details on how he did it here.

    The blocks themselves are getting harder to come by, you may want to go for something like the Swiftech Storm Rev 2 which uses the similar direct jet impingement design. IIRC, the Rev 2 uses new plates taken from the design of the Storm G7 for less pressure drop.

    Sorry for the thread hijack sk4mpi :blush:

    I'm more interested if it really is better than the TDX... also.. not sure it would look right with a chrome top in my rig, cos I wouldn't be able to light it, and then only the GPU will be lit.... would look rubbish I think.

    out of 125% its fixed at 95% which is non whiny yet not to slow.

    though it does make a racket like a vibrating sound when it revs up when you turn it on

    Those blocks look awesome, really nicely constructed and relatively cheap too.
