Description

Build a water cooling system in Rosewill U3. All parts are so close that some of them only seperates by less than 2mm. both radiators are carefully chosen. The water cooling blocks are from EK, Fittings and tubes come from Primochill. 90-degree Rotatory fitting and plugs are from Bitspower. As for draining port, I use a T-spliter and an extender with plug. Last pic is playing SkyRim with dual monitor. This is my first water cooling setup, so If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know. (Update: 06/03/2015)PS: the loop order: pump(out) -> bottom radiator(in) -> bottom radiator(out) -> GPU(in) -> GPU(out) -> Left radiator(in) -> Left radiator (out) -> CPU (in) -> CPU(out) -> Pump (in)

Part Reviews

CPU

The heat generated from this CPU is more than 3770k. But it performs well enough.

Motherboard

The dream motherboard. Love how it designed and colored. The Temp-sensor come with board really helps for me to check the water temp.

Memory

Only buy this for its Cas-latency. 7-8-8-24

Storage

I brought it when discount. Incredible performance. With the small size, i can put them on the back of motherboard. (there is no where else to put them anyway.)

Video Card

I would say you got what you paid for. Was thinking a Gtx 780 ti. but after seeing Navida upgrade GPU so often, i would not get myself into chasing. No issue when play skyRim with dual screen though (around 100 mods).

Case

Cant love this case more. Small size (only over 20 Liter volume) Dimension:(208(w) 270(L) 359(H)) Can you believe that i put the Matx board with Full ATX power and GTX780 inside it? not to mention the Pump, reservoir, and Two 120mm Radiator (one of them is 54mm Thick).

Power Supply

If you have the spare, just go for full modular power. this will save you tons of trouble for cable management.

Wireless Network Adapter

It claims to be fastest WIFI PCI-E adapter. I would admit that, but the noise coming from this is annoying( Yes, it have noise as well as stylish passive cooling plate).

Monitor

I love those monitor with small nozzles. Dell is not failing on it. I use dual monitor a lot. one for movie (some time two for movie), the other for web browsing / programming, or dual monitor for gaming (Yes you can, just enable Navida surround).

Nice job squeezing all that cooling in a small case. Looks great!

Thank you. Took me way much time to plan and measure than assembly. Well worthy though.

I am planning a build in this case's little cousin the U2-B so this is really inspiring. GG M8.

U2 is also a great case. full Aluminum is sturdy and light weight. I will go for U2 if i build an ITX, but still in silver, let the Aluminum shine on its own color.

Nice build, I like it. But what's with the hole in the case? I'm guessing that the GPU didn't quite fit.

Thank you, and you are right. The hole is the modding i did to the case. the GPU fits, but with the holes and such, it makes installing GPU a lot easier. Also if you notice the three red screws above the hole, They are also installed on the holes drilled to fit the Pump reservoir combo.

Hey could you let me know where you got the cool CPU temp and RAM monitor stuff on your background? Thanks!!!!!

Sure, it's a program named Rainmeter and for what you see on the background, they are skins for rainmeter, you can check out the website deviantart.com.

Did you mean the one coming from bottom Radiator to GPU?

the one going over the GPU that is connected to the CPU

  • 58 months ago

Oh, that one is not connected to CPU, it's from pump (out) to bottom radiator ( in). but thank you, i will add the loop order and pic with it.
