I recently got a SysCooling DIY watercooling kit. It has a 120mm rad with a thickness of about 35 mm. As it is my first attempt at water-cooling, I thought I should share it with you guys.
Thats the rad with the included Yate Loon medium speed fan capable of pushing 70.5 cfm @ 1650 rpm. The pump is capable of doing 300 ltr/hour and a head of 1.9 meters.
CPU block and fittings.
CPU block installed with everything setup and running. The fluid is blue and matches my RAM
The pump in the 5.25" drive bay. I had to take out my optical drive for it and now I will have too get a USB power kit or an external unit. The pump has a blue LED to indicate its powered up and working but it isnt visible because of the blue coolant.
Finally the rad and fan. In case you are wondering i have it outside as opposed to been inside my case, then the answer is that it wont fit inside the case. My BitFenix Merc Alpha isnt that good for water cooling. I have the fan in "pull" configuration for now and I might add another Xigmatek fan in push if its becomes necessary
