    Hi everyone,

    Sorry about the lack of updates, I've been busy with the new design and getting my BOM and pricing complete.

  3. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    A while back I mentioned some results I had gotten with my setup but I've decided to do a quick run with some games included so here we go.

    Firstly I ran an Idle test, nothing spectacular, I was...
  4. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    I've been getting more and more question about the final price for the kit, so I guess I'll go ahead and release an estimate.

    I'm still waiting on some small bits and pieces for final pricing, but...

  7. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    So I have been running some tests to check out the stabillity of the system.
    It is nice and quiet when idle, gets a bit louder when running Unigine Valley and Heaven.

  8. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    Stop! Update time.

    So as mentioned before the GPU stopped working, I thought the GPU itself might have died but after I disassembled the system I found the cause.
    It was my own fault, I hadn't...
  9. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    You mean the Original Design part? where I cut away a part of the fin array. It is supposed to show the way the micro channel is made, so it's not just a straight cut through the copper, it actually...
  10. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    I've made some good progess and had some setbacks

    First the progress:
    I've received and assembled waterblocks, I had a small problem with the GPU waterblock but you can read that a little later...
  11. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    I have a supplier that did the milling for me. I have the blocks in hand at the moment, but unfortunately I have to say that the quality is a bit meh. Performance shouldn't be affected but there are...
  12. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    Here's a nice update:

    The blocks have been made and are on their way now!

    The copper is fairly scratched judging from the pictures, but nothing a bit of spit and polish won't fix ;)
    They...
  13. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    No, it's just a physical x16 slot so the card fits without any modifications. it just a x4 to x4 riser.
  14. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    I kinda made a mistake :(

    The fitting that goes on the reservoir is not going to fit.

    Now I have to hope I can find someone to lathe a lot of material of the fitting and hope the fitting...
  15. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    Just a small update as it has been rather quiet now.

    I’ve ordered the waterblocks and reservoir from my supplier, they should be getting milled come Monday, so with a bit of luck I’ll have them in...
  16. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick question I am curious about. What kind of finish would you like to see on the case?
    A. Normal Black Anodized Aluminum
    B. Brushed Black Anodized Aluminum
    C. Black Powder...
  17. Re: [Build Log] H2O-Micro (sub 3 Liter Custom Watercooled Gaming Rig)

    It's all good :)

    Here's a mockup of my design, I won't be showing the waterloop for now, I will be showing this off later on when I have the physical blocks in hand, gotta keep people guessing...
