Corsair AX 1200i
ASUS Maximus VI Formula, Socket-1150
Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5 GHz
Corsair 32GB (4x8G CL11 2400MHz VENGEANCE PRO RED

EK Blood Red liquid
EK - Supremacy - Plexi + Nickel
EK-D5 X-TOP CSQ - Acetal
NZXT Grid 10-portars x2
Fittings EK-CSQ 13/19mm, Silver



Things started to arrive!:







After the weekend i had some time to build:

Installed the rads, the fans and planned out where all the stuff should go.





Sorry for the potato pictures, my Canon 1D seems to be dead :<

New photos with another camera:

The GTX 780 ti's without waterblock, will put a waterblock on them as soon as i can order the EK ones (comes out 11/19)

Trying out the routes with scrap tubing, decided against watercooling the motherboard with the included waterblock from ASUS tho, cause its aluminium.
Dont mind the kinks, i wont use these tubes, i will use PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 19/13 with Mayhem pastel red.

Dont mind that i only have 2 RAM's installed, waiting on my second pair!

Update 13-12-05:

Installing some foil with the brands used in the build, as a thanks for the awesome products they produce.

All done, turned out great!

Closeup of the foil, noticed the R was broken, so i fixed that after importing the photos.
Been very few updates lately cause ive been waiting for parts from EK in Slovania and Aquatuning in Germany!
If nothing goes wrong and if all the parts still work (never installed waterblocks on GPU's before so you never know!) the project should be done tomorrow Friday!

Hope someone are interested in following my project, its nothing groundbreaking but its fun to finally build a beast!

Looks pretty nice, proper colour co-ordination is always good

Could do with a bit more text, and you're not utilising dual channel memory when you install your dimms this way. Use either both red, or both black slots for a dual channel configuration.

Nice spec list, pretty beastie this boy. I hope the Gpu's will be watercooled when the blocks hit the market ?!

Just one thing i'm not a fan of is the kinked tubing. I would recommend using some angled fitting (45°, 60°) to get this sorted.

Like you said, you went balls to the wall, so a 200% job is necessary otherwise dont bother.

I have faith, so make us proud !

Like Feronix mentionned get that ram configured properly.

Im faaaar from done with the tubing, i am waiting for diffrent tubing and the new tubing is transparent.
I will use Mayhem's pastel red with my new tubing

I also wont use the watercooling on the motherboard, just wanted to test how kink-resistant the tubing was!

Oh, missed the GPU question, yes they will ofcourse be watercooled when EK releases theirs

Great start and with the help from the boys above and not rushing this you could have an amazing looking rig.

Word of advise from me parts dont make an epic rig - the way you put it all together does.......
