I'm strongly debating on an h110. Looks real good in sativas pc and this motherboard is sexc as hell.

Sigh... I know your right. $400 or so with shipping is putting me off tho. That's without gpu block.

Update:
Overclock Complete
variance in gflops is from youtube videos while waiting.

For now... Still gotta get the ram to 2400mhz, Haven't tried yet prob just have to change multiplier lol.

Nice overclock on that 4820k.
Your X79 board does look nice in there.

I like the H110 but at some point I would love to build my own WC loop.
At least with a custom loop if you don't get too addicted to it you really only need to swap out GPU blocks every upgrade or so.

It doesn't take long to start spending a ton if you're swapping out pumps, radiators and going through hoses and fittings like candy!

Default Quick 540 Swap

First time on the Corsair forums...


Just a couple of pics from my recent swap from a Cooler Master HAF case into an Air 540. Nothing fancy, only actual mod is the purple painted screen on the case.

1K holy crap. I was thinking about grabbing an xspc 240 rad kit with d5 vario pump and a 780 block. Would be like 500 with shipping all said and done. I suppose once you have 2 rads a crap load of custom fitting and good tubing etc. It can ad up quick. I'm too Dutch to spend that kind of money on cooling I think.

Plus I just noticed the new 780ti dc2 comes in black and gold option. Would look so good with my board. Decisions decisions.

Now that you have made the switch, what do you think of the 540? How do the 2 cases compare?

i had thought fitting would had been the cheapest,in single parts they are but the price really adds up when you get a dozen,,of course i got a few extra items to try and avoid a re-order

the 540 is a great case,i think youll love it,im waiting [hoping] on a new version thats 1 inch taller and longer as it would make custom cooling much easier...

Sounds like you've done DIY residential plumbing repair in the past

At least with that you can go down to rona or home depot for parts. Water cooling pc it's like "oh crap, I forgot a fitting", 2 weeks later your back up and running. Maybe not that long for those of you in US but shipping to Canada takes forever. Costs an arm and a leg too. Don'tthink there's any retailers with custom cooling parts.

True but the idea is the same. I don't want to have to crawl out from under my sink or whatever and go to Home Depot 3 times. I over-buy and return stuff later as opposed to the multiple trips interrupting work. As you noted, it would be even worse and a much longer wait each time you came up short on WC parts. It's a full day even if you are ordering from Amazon expedited Prime.
