Hello OC forum. I've been a lurker for a while now and I figured I'd post excerpts my buildlog here as well.

Part list:
Corsair 800D
Intel i7 860 (1156)
EVGA P55 FTW SLI 132-LF-E657-KR
Dominator Ram 8gigs
Mips Ram cooler (2 weeks till they have it in stock)
EVGA 260 with custom air/water cooler
2x OCZ vertex 60GB SSD's

2x Swiftech 355 pumps
Ek white toppers for the pumps
EK-BAY SPIN Reservoir
Black Ice GT Stealth 360
Black Ice Pro Compact 120
Enzotech compression fittings.

The mobo sitting in there. I already have most everything sleeved from my previous build

My apogee GTZ ( I know it's dated now but still good enough for me ;) )

The Mobo has mounting holes for both 775 and 1156 coolers but the 775 holes leave the block askew not to mention the retention bracket will not work due to the back of the 1156 CPU bracket being bumped out a bit. I had to order the proper one from Crazy PC

Here is my custom GTX 260 hybrid cooler :)

I flipped the top360 rad so that the barbs were in the front of my case and mounted the 120 to it.

I did use some black tubing to try and hide it in the shadows a bit

This is what I came up with for using both pumps in tandem

I then changed the tubing on the Vid card and it is a HUGE PITA but it needed to be done.


I think this may be the final tube routing.

All I need now is my ram block and I'm set. CPU > Ram> 120 Rad. I may even throw in a temp block so I can get this ***** up and running already.

What do you guys think? Ideas? Opinions? Suggestions? Hope you like it :)

great looking setup, but don't ruin it all with useless ram cooling....

great idea for the video card as well. i would have done that, but i want to keep my stock cooler should i need to sell it or anything like that.

Very nice looking build! You certainly had a very good reason to stop lurking and post this. Job well done so far, looking forward to its completion.

Thanks so much. I got an email that they sent my Mips ram cooler out today so it should be 2-3 days before I get it :) I'll be done soon after that and on to my g5 Build :)

Very nice looking build, man.:rock: I couldn't look at your build while I was on the rig because the pics were too much to handle while on that slow sat connection. I'm also a sucker for black and white color schemes too, which is what I did for my U2-UFO case. BTW, I have never seen white Laing pump bodies before; that is really cool. :thup: I didn't know they made them in white.
