It was a pita. The lead free solder on the ground plane needed a LOT of heat.

Ha, yes.

Loved the look of it, apart from the side of his case didn’t fit properly, so built this.

I wanted it in the loop. The choice of card was solely down to the aligned water block fittings.

Most cards & aftermarket blocks, the fittings protrude from the top of the card. Meaning I wouldn’t be able to close the case.

Just that, un-soldered the old , popped in new vertical ones.

Looks loads better than putting spacers on the side of the case.

They are OK. The bottom is really space limited.

I've only just completed the build and running basic tests, I've not pushed it yet to see what it can do.

Thanks, It was just on for the photos... last thing I did before closing up the case was remove it all.

It's doing ok... I can't remember the figures off hand but I would replace the stock fans. They do sound a bit like a jet engine at full tilt.

Nice build!

I haven't seen them go above 50 degrees C.. I think it helps a lot that they are spaced across 3 slots (required with this mb for dual PCI x16) and they have a fan (the bottom of the front 3) blowing directly across.

I used to be on very good terms with the local pc parts shop and also we had computer fairs that were actually good! Loads of suppliers in one place every Saturday morning, learnt so much just wandering around talking to people... Also excellent for finding the Best price quickly!

It's big :)

Was great to build in, loads of options for cable management so very easy to organise the insides to optimise the airflow.

I'm a bit obsessive with such things myself.

I'm in the uk.. I ordered from a local supplier called scan, www.scan.co.uk

Agree on the fans, the strip however plugs straight into the aura header on the mb & matches the lighting of the whole thing, I quite like it :)
