Small Mod

Post by smduff on Sat Apr 10, 2010 11:21 am

Well I decided to start a new build, and I am currently deciding as well as waiting on a few things. However i did get one piece of equipment that I thought could start this off. I really don't have a time frame for completion of this build I'm not in a rush, anyways here is what I have started with.


I would like to replace the water block but I don't know if it would greatly increase any preformance aspect is 1-3 degrees worth the extra cost or trouble of doing the mod?






Maybe one of the Admins could create a section for mods on our gear? and then move this post thanks guys.

It took all of about an hour, not very long most of the time was spent untangling the wires LOL

WoW !! I am impressed Steve. I would say yes it has to be worth it. Clean and tidy internals can have a huge affect on the overall running on a machine. Especially when going to the extremes we do. When pushing them the little details count I believe. Not to mention some great photo shots and a sense of accomplishment of the hard work put in , even on the minor details. :D

That cooler does look really tasty to me. Really looking forward to see this build progress. Starting to spur me on as well with my HTPC build. :D :D :D

Thanks for posting this , interesting as hell.

Thanks to 4hams for the new forum too. Great idea :D

I would replace that block Steve the newer blocks are lighter and you get better contact from what I hear! and at least a 2 to 3 degree drop in temps as well
