Okay guys here is my first go at a watercooling rig. I wasn't going for top of the line cooling, just for a quiet compact pc with good temps.

Specs:
Lain Li pc-60 Aluminum Case
DD Maze 4 Cpu block
Hydor L-20 Pump
Black Ice Xtreme Radiator
T-line Setup with 1/2" ID tubing.

Temps are like 94 F (34 C) Idle
96 F (36 C) Load

Lemme know what you think. :D :D :D

if they don't load here are the addresses.

Looks very nice...way to cram that all in there (and cleanly too)! :) I like the cathode setup - the two colors go nicely.

Going to be doing any overclocking?

ok...

Going to be doing any overclocking?

Maybe some, unfortunately my Soyo Mobo isn't the best for that. I am gonna try it, we will see how it goes.

looks sweet, did you have to do any modifying to the case?

A little, I cut the holes for the cathode switch, and pump relay. I took out the harddrive rack on the bottom, drilled out the rivets, and pounded down the speaker brackets on the floor. I also cut a little off of the Floppy cage to allow for the rad to fit. I also made a hole in the Cd rom bay for the tubing to leave. This made it so that the tubing didn't have to make a sharp turn and kink itself.

nice but to you have it going pump-rad-block-pump or pump-block-rad-pump?

Its going Pump-Rad-Block-Pump right now. I don't know how much of a difference it makes but this seemed like a good setup, really the only good way the tubing would go too.

thanks guys

Link for CD drive face plates

You can get Lian Li face plates for your drives for $1! It looks like he has the universal drive bezel, which I don't like as much because it covers everything but the eject button. I wish there were a face plate for Lite-On drives. :(
