Patience...It's coming along....update 09/12

Alright guys, as I said previously, I was working on my 1st watercooling build and funny enough the watercooling part of it was easy and fun. However, I ran into several problems with every thing else resulting in having to make a few changes. None the less, we press on.

I did have a fancy name for this but after all is said and done, I decided to name it after the thing I needed most when building it, Patience. As Tom always say, "take your time" and everytime I got excited I screwed something up.

Specs:

Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra

Gigabyte X79-UD5

Intel 3930K

Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz

HD7950

120GB Intel 330 SSD (boot)

2x 60GB OCZ Solid 3 SSD raid 0 (game drive)

Coolermaster Silent Pro 800watt

EK Supreme HF CPU Block (nickel)

EK 7950 water block (nickel)

Phobya G-Changer 420 (push)

Black Ice GT Stealth 280 (push/pull)

DangerDen DD-CPX Pro

Primochill Tubing (7/16)

1/2 Fittings everywhere (bitspowers, enzotech,koolance)

8x ThermalRight X-Silent

2x BitFenix White Spectre (front)

AlphaCool Reservoir (same one Tom did an overview on earlier)

Mayhem Gigabyte Orange coolant

Bitfenix Extensions (even though only one is installed right now)

NZXT White Led Strip

Parts:



Running:









Alright, a few things. In an earlier post about my previous build (which is being overhauled for the family & what the 7750 is for) I have a video showing this build in very early stages. In that vid there was a 7950 under water and an Corsair AX850watt looking pretty which sadly do to a string of unfortunate events is longer there. Next month, I'll be grabbing another 7950 (going under water) and changing the extensions to blue (8-pin included) to match the board better.

This build was an adventure that I was long overdue and honestly would've went smoother had I done it sooner instead of later. Its been too long since I've built a completely brand new system. Next month it'll be complete but I'll be making small changes here and there cause I find watercooling to be so fun and SO QUIET.

UPDATE: 7950 and drain port in!



UPDATE 6-20-12 Laid the 2nd rad down read thread for details and more pics!

Looks pretty nice man, well done. I would suggest posting your images in the below format so people don't have to click on the images to be sent to an external link to view a larger image.

I've removed your pictures are they are far too big.

They may be resized in the editor, but all you are effectively doing is squishing them. This page took a while to load for me because the pictures are still around 2MB.

Use http://imgur.com/ and select large thumbnail at the bottom underneath the image links after you upload the pics, it will resize them and compress them so the file size is smaller and without losing too much detail.

Nice build, strange place for the 240 rad though, do the fans get enough air with the side panel on?
