    Talking My ever changing PC in the Antec P180 [a little 56K unfriendly]

    In the begining...


    Intel C2D E6300
    Asus P5W DH Deluxe
    XFX 8800GTX
    Coolermaster iGreen 600W
    2x 200GB SATA HDD
    1x 160GB SATA HDD
    PQI Turbo PC4200 2GB DDR2 533mhz 3-3-3-8
    Antec P180

    then...

    Gigabyte pump from 3D Galaxy kit
    Alphacool NexXxoS XP
    Black Ice Xtreme 120mm
    Clearflex 1/2" ID Tubing
    Swiftech MCRES res

    added EK FC8800GTX to the loop and another radiator from the Gigabyte 3D Galaxy kit. back in the noob days, mixing aluminum with copper


    then moved to a BIX2, water colour turned from blue to purple from not cleaning out the gunk left over by previous owner, again, noob days
    also upgraded to a Laing DDC with Petra's top and a Cathar Storm G4



    my sexy Alphacool block



    then lapped my CPU



    then flushed out the gunk inside the radiator and changed to Swiftech 7/16" tubing



    Redline water wetter looks yucky, and tubing got dented from overuse of coolsleeves in unnecessary places, also changed to a Swiftech Storm



    painted the Storms mounting plate and changed to a Intel Bad Axe 2, ditched the Swiftech stuff and bought some el-cheapo tubing from Bunnings



    dogey custom bracket to support the G80


    heaps of changes have happened and now:
    -upgraded to an E6600
    -downgraded to a 8800GTS 320MB
    -swapped the 3x HDDs to a single 500GB one
    -upgraded to a Corsair HX620W PSU
    -upgraded to 2x 1GB Crucial Ballistix PC2-8500
    -got my hands of 1/2" ID Tygon Tubing
    -upgraded to a Swiftech MCR220
    -Laing DDC died so I bought a Swiftech MCP350
    -changed to a Swiftech Apogee
    -changed out the Swiftech MCRES to a brand new one, old one had dirty gunk in it
    -added an EK Nickel plated chipset waterblock and sold the EK FC8800GTX
    -put a HR05 of the SB
    -added an OCZ XTC RAM cooler



    then redid cabling and loop order, didn't like having my pump running sideways





    I have no idea why the paintwork is cracked like that, I will fix it sometime, also the white stuff is masking tape, my attempt to block out noise and dust, didn't have any duct tape lying around at the time




    I will be changing the motherboard out to an Asus P5N32-e SLI or Asus P5K Deluxe in the next few weeks so yeah.. stay tuned

    This all happened since mid January 2007

    nice build, I am thinking of watercooling my p180 case also (can't decide if I want to use p180 or lian li pc65). How many cans of paint did you use to paint the case?

    I can't help you with the pain just yet but you can do a lot to water cool a p180.

    I'm thinking of changing out the fans on the radiator, they're making a annoying whining sound.

    And most of the noise is coming from pump vibrations so I think I'm going to have to get some Petra's gel stuff along with a few new fans for my radiator

    lol thanks.

    I've gone through quite a few changes before ending up with the current setup.

    I'll probably be going back to the FuZion again in a few weeks time.

    Looks fantastic.

    However, I'd recommend fixing one problem that will need you 2-3C.

    You need to rotate your block by 90 degrees so that the GT's plate is in a "vertical" orientation.

    Er...what? Are you sure you're thinking of the right block? AFAIK there's no way to mount the GT in any other orientation than the one he has it in.

    This makes me wish that I actually made a worklog of all the changes that my system has (and is going through). I think that it would amount to over 50.

    According to Gabe, my own observation, and Nihksub1's testing, orienting the Apogee GT in the vertical direction results in water flowing through the block in an optimal manner.

    Nihksub1 mentions it here in his lengthy well documented block test: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...7&postcount=10

    That's not a GT. That's a hybrid between a GT and the GTX using the GT base-plate and the GTX mounting mechanism; there's no way for him to replicate that without buying a GTX, in which case he may as well just use the GTX. Observe the difference between the block tops from that picture and the above -

    -niksub has changed his mounting plate for a GTX's mounting plate
    -mine is just the standard Apogee not the GT

    Oh, you have the original Apogee? Sorry, I was assuming it was the GT as the Apogee wasn't in production for very long. In any case, the difference was on the inside, not the outside, so it's irrelevant.

    As far as I can see, yes. This allows them to mount their Apogee GT with the inport and outport in a vertical line, which the regular mounting plate of the GT will not allow you to do. I'm not 100% sure though, obviously, as it wasn't me that did it and niksub hasn't posted here.

    My apologies, I had assumed it was the GT when glancing over the system specs.

    that's okay, the pins on my Apogee are look alot larger than the GT so that's how I figured it out. I didn't buy it, it was given to me as I upgraded from the Swiftech Storm.
    I'm thinking of getting a D-Tek FuZion as my next waterblock upgrade, FuZion is one sexy block and the GTX is not bad either but I'd rather prefer the FuZion

    yes you can change it to a vertical mount, its because the LGA775 mounting is a square shape so you can mount it anyway you want

    right now, I really couldn't be bothered, I'll do it next time I open up my PC
    that will happen when I change out the motherboard and fans on the radiator

    Aren't you going to get cap interference if you do that though? It sure looks like it from the pictures...
