As I have seen on other builds,I still dont get the black sleeving on each and every wire coming out of the power supply.Looks much better as one cable.I been wiring custom bikes for over 20 years and if I ever did that on a bike,I would be fired.And to spend 30 hours on it is really crazy.:eek:

noticed your radiator feed return pipes at the top, hmm mines at the bottom, i know these are sealed units, just wondered if there might be an air trap obviously at the top, thats the reason i put my pipes at the bottom....

 

or do i need to refit my rad,

Yes you will need the WD3000HLFS for Hot bays.;):

 

 

 

Terrfific looking setup AlphaTech,

I have a question regarding the WD velociraptor HDDs. They come in various "flavors". Do I need the WD3000HLFS to use the hot swappable trays?

Cheers,

Can wait to see your new pics! Build looks great so far....

 

BTW how did you wire up your fans to the controller?

Please detail each fan location....

Did you need any extensions or Y's?

Assume the H50 pump is hooked to MB, is the fan? or does it go to controller too?

 

Wanting to do same cooling setup and learn from someone who seems to know what they are doing

 

Thanks

Alpha,

Notice you're not using the heat pipes to cool the northbridge. How is it being cooled? I noticed because of the sound card in the PCI-1 slot. Can you run this board without using the additionally supplied cooler and not water cooling to those parts?

Thanks

The systemboard has heatpipes built into the it. The X58 has been moved down to lower right of the board for cooling.
