    Default Watercooling

    Hello PUREOC!

    Just built a new rig, the last one was like 8-9 years ago using AMD CPU and a MSI mobo.

    I saw a review of the Corsair 800D case and I needed it bad, so I got it. The rest I was going for bang for the buck.

    Intel Core i7 920, 2033 MHz
    Using Stock Intel Fan right now

    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5
    G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB ) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ (512 MB )
    Corsiar 750W PSU

    The HD's I ripped two SATA HDs off the old rig
    MAXTOR STM3500320AS ATA Device (500 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)
    ST3320620AS SATA Device (320 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)

    LiteOn DVD-RW Optical Drive

    Coming from a very old AMD 2400+ CPU based system, this thing screams.

    So I want to watercool this, I know with the Corsair 800D case I have a ton of options, I like the XSPC X2O 750 Dual 5.25 Bay Reservoir Pump combo unit, I have the space for 360 Radiators, the vent and mounting points are allready there, just comes down to which brand. And of course the CPU waterblock.

    I think I screwed up on the choice of Motherboard, I have looked all over, I do not see a waterblock for my model.

    So again - Hello fourm! I will be scanning the threads and abusing the SEARCH feature. I'm basically here looking for advice and suggestions for watercooling and overclocking this rig.

    TheShaz


    Here is the new rig as I install Win7 and the new case next to the very old, very dated old PC.

    actually the mounting sockets on the i7's are all the same, so any i7 waterblock will work

    For the CPU - I see all the CPU waterblocks for the i7. I see waterblocks for my graphics card. But I have not seen one for my motherboard.

    I am going to start off with a single loop for just the CPU. Doing this in stages.

    The 800D has the space for one triple rad, without modification. That's enough to cool your CPU. If you want more rads, one dual can be fit into the basement laying flat, or two duals (standing side by side) can be fit in the basement in front of the PSU. Both options require removal of the HDD hotswap bays, and the second option requires extensive modding of the midplate and motherboard tray.

    The XSPC dual Bay reservoir may not fit without modification. The problem is that the 800D has small metal tabs between each of its drive bays. These tabs may prevent a dual-bay from sliding in. In that case, you'll have to remove the tabs, and it isn't a fun job. I don't have depth measurements on the XSPC X2O 750 slotting though, so it's just a guess.

    Overall, the 800D is poorly designed for water cooling. But, where there's a will there's a way. If you don't own a Dremel yet, better go get one.

    They are all good blocks, now it's come down to personal taste and how many block will in in the loop to chose wisely.

    I've reviewed them all and here are my personal though;
    XT: killer perfomer but very restrictive, work best with high flow pump or pumps.
    Supreme: flexible with flow controlling (jet plates), little date look.
    HK: expensive and old dog
    Raza: great performer and value, the aesthesis is not very sexy to some other blocks
    CPU 360: one sleek looking block, high quality build
    Stealth: The review is coming, so keep your eyes peel

    The performance diffrent between them only with 1-3C though.

    EK has them, it's call EK-FB KIT GA X58 - Gigabyte
    two versions available: clear plexi top or black acetal, they cost from $130 - $140

    Like DrDeath said, water cool X58 boards are not neccessary any more unless you are extremely overclock the snotch out of your board. So for casual overclockers are more like personal liking and bling.

    I don't know what your plan to do one giant loop or two loops but if you doing on giant loop that including CPU/MOBO/VGA then I would suggest you getting the D5 (mcp655) pump DDC pumps. The X20 750 is little weaker than the D5, it's sitting between D5 and DDC pump in term of performance.

    you won't have any problem to fit a 360 rad into the 800D at the top. Regarding to the X2O 750; it's suppose to fit into two 5.25" bays but I don't own the 800D so I don't know if it is exactualy fit or not. Like my nurse Earthmonger (j/k) said you might have to do a little modding if there's a problem of fitting.

    Deton, out of curiousity, do the make a full cover for Gigabyte X58-UD3R.

    EK makes one that will fit but it is not officially listed...

    I don't think they have full cover block for the UD3 series. You can check from the other brands but I think EK has wider selections though.

    What's the difference between the X58A-UD5 and the EX58-UD5? MIPS makes blocks for the latter, item number: MCH4429

    1 of the blocks looks like it will accomodate the UD3. not the mofset though...... The cut outs on the base look to be the same on either the UD5 or UD7... I was womdering if you could take a look at them...

    Thanks for the reply.

    I think I will start off with a CPU loop, and then go from there. I think I might have to change mobo's out down the road.
