Nice layout - I've always loved those cases for their cable management and style.

Yeah, I honestly felt like I was cheating w/ this build. The amount of cable management, relatively low height, and generous space behind the mobo have made this my favorite case so far. I would have liked a window option though.

Been a while since I posted anything on this thread. This is my latest.

I really like the lighting and looks sweet with the white case.

Here's my modest little set up:

h220-5.25.2013.jpg


Looking to expand the loop with a second 240mm rad shortly. Currently it's just an H220 with a 670 expanded into the loop. I also ordered a strip of LEDs off Amazon for some custom lighting, and need to order supplies for some custom cabling as well.

Excuse the poor quality, my Nexus 4 is the only camera I have and it's a cold, rainy day outside so there is not much light available. Also, my kitchen table is a disaster. Deal with it.

I would agree. It is a very clean workspace especially having a white desk.

My new build. Might tidy up the area around the PSU a bit more in the future (non-modular PSU) but it doesn't get in the way of airflow and I haven't got a window in the case so meh.
It's not a "killer rig", but it's my first proper high-end system since I built an Athlon64 3500+ system back in 2004. Everything since then has been second-hand parts or anything I came across for cheap.

Everyday use, compiling software, parity scans/repairs of downloaded usenet stuffs, gaming, sftp/ftp server, and lots more. Its my primary desktop machine that is hooked up to my 4k seiki display.

I'm a bit late here but why not. It's not particularly special and I don't have the desk space to display it as well as I'd like (half my desk is taken up by an AVR) but still- here's my baby (apologies for the phone cam):

Mostly finished my build over the weekend. Still needs a fan controller and LEDs... cables will be rerouted a little when the fan controller gets setup.

Very nice. Like your window on that 350D. I'm a little annoyed I didn't get a Corsair PSU now having seen the gorgeous braided cable sets.

I saw a similar setup on the first page but formula409 is cleanest to date.

Here's my current rig, 3 years old now (excusing the GTX560Ti), sitting in my trusty 11 year old Coolermaster 210b case, it must've seen 4 water cooled system rebuilds since 2005/6. A Haswell / Lynx Point / GTX 780 rebuild is on the way soon.

Pretty sweet watercooling mod. Nice choose on the color scheme, it goes together nicely. How big is that
radiator?

I got the fittings from aquatuning.us and they have the metal lock rather than plastic. The issue I had was finding 10MM stainless steel pipe in the US cheaply, which by the way is not easy to bend even with a new $300 bender. I could have used 3/8" but it is not exactly 10MM and fits a little to loose to me in those fittings. I ordered some stainless steel pipe from overseas. No leaks from them even from the first tun on of the system over the last 4 months.

I love that old Coolermaster case. Classic. And the rad on the side of the desk also works as an anti-theft mechanism. ;)

Picked up a 900D from Microcenter. Been dreaming of it since I had my hands on it at CES and when I saw that they were in stock, I made the hour drive (each way) to get it. Worth every penny if you are serious about watercooling.

Just 2-way

Why E5-4600, not use E5-2600 ?
