Default My (not so) new Antec case finaly watercool

Hi everybody long time no read
As I'm lately beeing very bussy at work my silver blocks water cooled Antec case suffered big slowdown. But last week I finaly put together my second watercooled rig. This rig main goal is to be quiet and still offer some good cooling.
One reason it took me longer is that I had to make new silver block, my previous version had slightly too narrow channels for my pump so I had it remelted, and then go with slightly modified original MK4 design.




As I also got a chance to make north bridge block out of silver for free, I also did that (wouldn't want color inbalance in my rig )

Next I install block on my Abit NF7 mobo




One of main highlight of this case was Dodge Viper's beautiful hand made Chavette heatercore, his work on the shrouds and fittings is just unbeliaveble. Thanks again

Here is how it looks combined with two panaflo 120mm fans.





Here is the blow hole in the front of antec case:



And here the core firmly bolted to the case.

All that money, time, and energy making silver blocks and making the damn thing look as good as it does (which it looks great!) and your sorry ass is using a PCI vid card? Damn newbs!

Looks great though. I have the same case and slowly getting it together. I did the window first though being I do stuff like that everyday at work with the laser. Going to take it back in a laser engrave something on window.

Nice work on both those blocks! What is that tiny pump you got there?

Melted and start over? That's got to be pretty unique! Did you loose any performance, as a result of the re-melting?

Otherwise, nice work, as usual!

Hehe, I know I only got one 3D card, but I'm still perfectly happy with matrox millenium in pci

Yep Balinju, they are.

bb2k, I didn't do that, my friend (jeweler) who got me silver piece did that as it can be done everytime, with no performanse lost, just little material lost

Not exactly, same as this I used small diameter slit saw so the cutts aren't all the way to the bottom of the channel.

I can't really say much myself anyway. Still using a Radeon 32DDR or 7200 by the new terms.

Thats my first gfx card, superb 2d quality And been following Matrox since then.

No Geforce in existance can compare to this good old Millennium, 2D image quality wise

Very nice

Just one question, why using this kind of fittings on the WB ?
After all you are not using polyurethane hoses ...

Halo_Master, sorry but please remind me what am I suppose to do (you used my new email ?)

Ghys, my temp reading won't mean nothing to you, I have nf7 mobo with probe bent up so it touches the bottom of the cpu plus thermal compund for better contact, and older bios, becuse I read the new bios shaved 10°C to be less alarming for ignorant users Anyway what count is how high I can run my cpu 100% stable and even if I used silver blocks (maybe 1°C compared to copper, prolly less) my heatercore lost half it size so water temps are about 8°C with my fans in silent mode and so are my cpu temps higher, but I still got 2560 MHz out of my good old 1700+
Like I said this case wasn't build with max oc. in mind, but to be nice and quiet.

mfpmax, will this do:



fjpchina, I use this fitting cos I ran out of stainless steel barbs, and this ones I also use in my other case and I like them a lot, very simple to remove the hoses if needed.

No it won't, I demand flashing lights and smoke effects!

Much cleaner than mine...but I have most of my PCI slots full
