Dual Loop i7 Stacker Welcome to my third project log! After two complete overhauls of cheap/old cases this project is going to be more of a build log with a few basic mods to hopefully produce a rig that im finally happy with and should last me through Uni. Previous two projects: RyansPC I never did get some final pictures of this mod complete [LAN Cubular This project was abandoned in favour of a new case (the Stacker) Although don't expect this project to be as extensive as those, I don't wanna to modify this case too much basically because I really like the look of it and wouldn't want to ruin that by slapping lumps of body filler (bondo you for yanks) on it!! The aim of this project is to cram dual loops in using a 240mm a 360mm radiator to cool the CPU, GPU, chipset, mosfets and RAM. Before anyone says anything, yes I know that watercooled RAM is a waste of money as RAM doesn't really produce that much heat etc but the RAM block was only £38 and its going to look great in the project. I also plan to cut plenty of slots and holes to aid cable management as I have always admired those people that have OCD when it comes to builds. Im also considering painting the chassis either matt or satin black but I haven't made up my mind yet, what do you guys think? Both cooling loops will use Feser One UV reactive fluid so a few UV CCFLs are a must but these will be on switch as I don't want them glowing all the time. The initial single loop cooling my old Q6700. Old pump location. This is how the rig is sitting right now as I type this, the old Danger Den block was skt775 specific so when I sold me 775 setup to my dad and upgraded to i7 I was left using the stock intel cooling which as we all know is a POS, especially with the current weather we have been having. I've lived with that terrible mess of cables for long enough! It's time to mod! Just some pictures of the watercooling gear thats going into this build: A couple of DDC 18w bought from this very forum, I will be buying a matching XSPC clear top for the other pump. Black ICE Stealth 360mm, got the XFlow version for loop neatness. MIPS "Dominator 6" RAM block, Really well made and specifically for Dominator RAM. All you have to do is remove the stock heatsink fins and mount this on top, meaning the warrenty stays intact! Not my picture but it gives you an idea how it works. Simple. Watercool Heatkiller 3.0 Even with a rotary fitting I still can't get two fittings installed as the holes are stupidly close together Im going to get a couple of TFC or Bitspower 45 fitting to overcome this. Its soo close, with a bit of filing I might be able to get it to fit temporary. I went for slightly cheaper tubing this time rather than Tygon to save some money. Sadly the new stuff has slightly thinner walls than the Tygon which doesn't look as good but its ok for the money. The bend radius on this stuff is almost as good as the Tygon, it also doesn't have the sticky texture so it shouldn't pick up dust as easily. I was lazy and bought some pre-wired UV LEDs but now I regret it.. For some stupid reason I ordered 3mm LEDs rather than 5mm so they aren't going to fit in the XSPC pump top without some clear sealant. No biggy. Low speed Yate loons Cheesecake. This is how my rig stands as it is, a complete mess! This thing is begging for watercooling, my i7 is sweating badly under this recent weather. My slot loading DVD drive mounted on a pair of upside down HDDs brackets, works really well and keeps it quiet as its mounted on 3M tape. Under carrage! This existing 240mm cutout will be extended to take the 360mm rad. Taking out the old rad.. didn't know there was stil some juice inside.. my poor Razer mats Old and new, the little 240mm is now as-good-as-new thanks to my dads air compressor. Perfect place for the second rad its only placed in there for now but it gives you an idea of what its going to look like. The 360 fits! (only placed there for now) Thats all for now, thanks for looking and next time I update this log I should hopefully be doing some actual modding! Sorry for the mix of ok and bad pics, the recent pics were taking with more care using natural light (attic skylight) on a white table cloth which turned out pretty good.
