I am doing just about the same revamp as you. But I am moving out of my current case (Armor Jr.) into a U2-UFO. I wish I would have gone with a regular sized Armor for the room.

I also have the same pump and rad coming in tomorrow...but the damn case isnt due until 1/3/07 :/.

Well good look on your revamp. Keep posting updates, for I am curious to see the progress.

Got some little stuff done. It is always the little things that take the longest do to. But i also noticed that i never received the adjustable brackets for the res. WTF! It says that from 9/1/06 the brackets are included. Damn i knew something would go wrong. O well.




This rad is BEEF!!!!! Holly cow


But for my loop i should go the pump -> CPU -> GPU -> Rad -> Res -> Pump. Or could I go Pump -> GPU -> CPU -> Rad -> Res -> Pump. I think the first one is the best and most ideal. Or does it really matter?

It doesn't matter a whole lot except for length of tubing. If you get a choice then put the CPU first. Personally, I prefer the Storm to be right after the pump ...

agreed. that storm is quite restrictive. i'd put it in front of your GPU's atleast though.

I've been told by several people (who should know) that block order really doesn't matter. I have would have to add the word "theoretically" to that statement. It seems that water and air flow are very similar in their behavior, yet experimental evidence suggests fan pull configurations work better than push configurations on a radiator - "theoretically" that shouldn't matter either.

My perspective on the Storm is the same as my outlook on cars. The designer tested and optimized the system using these components in this manner, therefore, using the same components in the same manner as the designer will yield optimal results. Newer technology (i.e., a better pump) may yield better results but you get the idea ...

My 7950 GX2 currently idels at 65 and 74 under fully load. So im wondering if i hit that first if the water coming out of it would effect the CPU temp drop or not? Im going to hit the cpu first though just to play it safe.

Sweet got all the rest of the stuff, now i need to find some time to do the switch. Had to send back one of the cpunurse's bunk display then had to wait for performance pc to send me the hardware kit for the res. Did you know that if you ourchase the regular swiftech microres without the g1/4 top you get the hardware kit. But if you purchase the res with the g1/4 thread top they dont send you the hardware kit, cause the make the top piece there so thats there reason. WTF?????????????? So i got them to send me one anyways. Time to play.

Ok some pics:

The other random stuff i was waiting for.



Re-Sleeving is a bleep!!!!



Ok, this if fir the UV Lights switch is mounted on the front of the case.



And the is the hardware kit i was waiting for as well. Got the G1/4 treaded top for the micro res do i can plumb the fill port into the res. I love it.


Also re-sleeved the sata power cable but needed it back in to post these pics. Need to put the uv 6pin plug still on the sata and pci-x cables.

Took me forever to re-sleve these things. Man thank god i did them now instead of the the day i install everything.

I got the uv blue sleeving and the the red strips on the ends are uv heat shrink, thats it nothing more. but my dumb a** didn't get the tool to remove the pins from the 6 pin pci-x plugs and the 24 pin, so today i have to take the psu and all the other cable to work and cut the clip one pin at a time and transfer them that way. Last night i had to cut them with a small pair of wire clippers. Pain in the butt. Will post those pics today from work. TGIF
