Today I am going to show you how to go completely custom with your new Cooler Master Eisberg Prestige we reviewed here. This guide should certainly help you if you are new to water cooling and even more so if you have just purchased the Eisberg as a single unit and need ideas.
When I first got my hands on a Eisberg 240l unit a while ago I loved it. The 400 litres per hour specification made me jump for joy and the 5v,7v and 12v usage made me think it could be used with a pump controller such as the amazing Lamptron CW611. I looked at the compression fittings and the ribbed tubing thats so common now with AIO coolers and couldn’t help myself to start asking questions. Maybe replacing the fittings and tubes would be nice? Perhaps even a bigger radiator? Maybe add a large reservoir for much more liquid volume and give me a decent fill/drain? All these questions needed answering so today I took action and you guys can have a front row seat.
The parts I will be using come from very well known and respected manufacturers of liquid cooling parts. EK Water Blocks, Mayhems fluids and Primochill. Obviously there are many more manufacturers out there so what I will do is list the correct sizes and explain the function of these parts so it will help you in your purchasing decisions. If there are alternatives to the parts I’m using I will also give you a list of alternatives.
The skill level for doing this is moderate. If you have built your own air cooled system this will be a small learning curve. If you have built a liquid cooled system previously there may be a couple of tips and tricks here for you.
Since we are toying with liquid and electrical components here Eteknix in no way holds responsibility if you spill a litre of fluid on your mobo or poke yourself in the eye with tubing.
With this said Let us move on to the next page so we can get cracking!
