yanked a bunch of stuff loose over last few weeks for new fans/SSD/670...and now in need of a few wire ties and some re-routing...:)

Looks good dude!!

BababooeyHTJ Aug 19, 2012 02:54 PM

Here are a few shots of the new case. I have a few bitfenix spectre pro 140mm fans for the top rad on the way.

cool, temps?

BababooeyHTJ Aug 19, 2012 03:04 PM

Around 45c at 1200mhz and 1.2v. I also have a couple of reference amd brackets on the way that may shave off a degree or two. These blocks don't work all to well with spring loaded screws. It would be nice if koolance provided all of the hardware that you need to mount the block. :rolleyes:

I haven't really checked to cpu temps but it is an ivy bridge processor so, it probably still runs hot.

The spring loaded bracket is actually the superior method for mounting the block. It ensures the die has proper pressure on it.

Yeah, it would be nice if they had included one like Swiftech does with the Komodo.

The cards come with them... At least the 7970's do. :|

Most non-reference cards use the spring loaded screws....

I find it surprising that Koolance doesn't include any screws at the very least for around the gpu. Its the first aftermarket cooler that I've ever bought that didn't include all of the mounting hardware. Thats sort of crappy.

I just added 6 Arctic cooling F14 fans in push/pull to the top rad.


H001iGAN Sep 8, 2012 06:58 PM

what case is that?

Mangler Sep 8, 2012 07:03 PM

Xigmatek Elysium.

BababooeyHTJ Sep 8, 2012 08:38 PM

Yup, and its absolutely massive.

I actually just installed an X1050 Gold and swapped the direction the the fans on my top rad.

And it's quite impressive when it comes to its features as well.
Just a shame it looks so weird.

Mangler Sep 9, 2012 09:10 AM

Imo, it would look so much better if it did not have that section with the hdd dock.

Mangler Sep 9, 2012 09:24 AM

On the roof, I don't like that raised section with the hdd dock.

Can that case fit (2) 360's internally?

Mangler Sep 11, 2012 11:44 AM

The elysium?

Yes.

And if you are creative you can fit a 480 too.

Thats a 60mm thick 420 in the roof with fans in push pull. If I weren't using the drive cage on the bottom I could have easily fit an 80mm thick 360 with fans in push pull. The case is very spacious.

I'll probably change the tubing some day.

I change the GPUs far too often to consider liquid cooling them. The cost of GPU water blocks is prohibitive for the turn around time I have with GPUs.

Ah ic. I usually am able to sell the blocks for not much of a loss surprisingly. It is a pain though when you change cards often but the silence is :drool:

Have't watered my 670 tri yet lol. However, I do plan on getting these.




Sexy lol.

bob saget Sep 14, 2012 06:54 PM

that is sexy hot.

I've honestly never been all that interested in water cooling my cpu. Video cards on the other hand are so worth it.

Found some old pics on a dusty cd, I think it is my FX-55 system. LOL
