    Amagad ! ! :jawdrop:

    You're crazy! Well I guess Lian Li just had their asses served, HARD! They should hire you :D

    Amazing Work. Loved the different WB tests you've made, that's what I call being thorough, DAMN.

    Question about the copper pipes, what size in mm are you using, as well as the fittings? You've probably written it and I've just missed it :eek: I'm thinking of using the same system for my next WC system. Thanks :)

    That's correct, I did that for better piping. :)


    Pipes is 12mm, the fittings is regular Bitspower multi-link adapters/fittings for 12mm pipes.

    Thanks for the support, guys! :rock:

    Now, let's continue with the build.



    Some pictures from before DH.

    Assembly guide of the GPU water block.

    [​IMG]

    All the parts for the WB.


    [​IMG]

    First insert 5 screws, they will later be screwed in the backplate.


    [​IMG]

    Put the copper base on the card and tighten the screws from the backside.
    The 5 screws should still be inserted through the pcb.


    [​IMG]

    Mount the backplate by tightening the 5 screws, there are holes through the copper base for the allen key.


    [​IMG]

    Install the I/O bracket and 3 M3 screws that go through the copper base, PCB and tightens in the backplate.


    [​IMG]

    Mash the 6-pin power cable in there.


    [​IMG]

    Install the POM top.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Install the copper bridge with the 4 remaining screws.

    Done deal!

    Here's some images after I "finished" the build before Dreamhack.

    Right now, I'm in the process of designing the coolers for the RAM memory (air coolers).
    If everything goes as planned, they'll be manufactured this weekend.

    I could be missing something here, but does your GPU block have microchannels or is it just flat?

    My heart stopped for a few seconds, when I saw they GPU block. This is getting better and better I love the stealth mounting that you did with the backplate. Very nice no screw at all to look at. :rock:

    I hope you get it ready before MOTY comes you are the nr1 for me this year.

    That polished copper looks soooo good. Great GPU block too, the power plug off the back is nice.

    I want you to finish in time for Mod of the Year too, but for different reasons. :worried: I plan on finishing my rig next year, and I don't have a chance against this.

    Sorry guys, but I won't have time to finish before MOTY this year, I'll be in the one next year. :) (I hope, atleast. :p )

    My guesses is I have around 1-2 months left on this. (IF everything works as it should)

    Wait...Nexxo, That's impossible.:lol: I don't think it's in your nature to do that. -Finish a mod, that is.

    Who am I kidding? Some insane Russian mod will show up in December and win.:lol:
