CPU and the gpu block if it's $200 along w/ the swiftech 655 or 665 or w/e it was should be $300. Rings should be fairly cheap along w/ tubing + res should be about $100 more. 

EK doesn't have any problems with it's Nickel plated blocks now, that was around 3 years ago. In the UK/EU, EK are also the cheapest, although imo, Aquacomputer have the best looking blocks. I went all Nickel because it matched the look of my components better than the copper blocks.

 

Cost breakdown:

 

Item Cost/U$D
CPU block 80
GPU block 130
GPU backplate 40
240mm radiator 67
Fans 30
Laing DDC 18W pump 103
Acrylic pump top 27
Reservoir(single bay) 40
Masterkleer tubing, 6ft 15
Fittings, compression and angled 120
Total 652

but I only imagine using about 4 benjamins for cpu & 1 card.
What about a radiator? tongue.gif The $500 was right. wink.gif

I want to get a white carbon vinyl and do my PSU and CPU block and maybe RAM... biggrin.gif Or a baby blue like Maximum PCs 2012 Dream PC! biggrin.gif

If I had the time and budget(and skills) I'd want to build something like this but watercooled.

case out of wood. wood and heat do not go well with each other. But w/e.

You managed to not look at the massive amount of venting?

still is not good for wood.

You realise that in a PC a minuscule fraction of heat is actually conducted out of the case through the enclosure right? The material a case is made of makes no difference at all to it's cooling ability. NONE.

And it will NOT get hot enough to catch on fire! rolleyes.gif

Masterkleer is awful. Durelene is considered best right now. Primochill dropped due to some plasticizer issues now. Tygon is great but expensive. Durelene is from the same company that makes Tygon but without all of those extra additives and stuff.

 

A replacement pump top isn't necessary.

 

240mm radiator isn't safe unless you're going with parts that run at fairly low temperatures when stressed. It's common rule for 120mm for every CPU, GPU, or whatever else produced that much heat along with a spare 120mm so he'd need a 360mm radiator or 420mm (for 140mm rad standards).

That build isn't really to my liking. It's personal preference after all. Parvum System's S1.0 is pretty neat although I like the build Model 01 right now.

yup. still, nope. If I had that fine wood, I'd do something else with it. very_evil_smiley.gif

Unless in direct contact like in some MacBook Pros or some iMacs where I could give myself a burn if I touched it for a bit.

I like the look, but it's just too similar to stuff already on the market(except acrylic). With full custom case, I tend to prefer something different.

The heatsink of Apple computers do not touch the aluminum case.
