EK HAF-XR -- Craven --(no 56k)

post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, this is my first water cooled build and also my first build log in overclock.net

I'm tired with loud noise that came from my 580's fans .. they're pretty loud while gaming frown.gif

Watercooling Parts:

1x HWLabs Black Ice GTX 420
2x EK XTC 420 Triple Radiator
1x EK XT 360 Triple Radiator
1x EK Supreme HF Full Nickel
3x EK-FC 580 GTX+ Nickel/Plexi
3x EK-FC 580 GTX Nickel Backplate
3x EK-FC GeForce Links
1x EK-FC Triple Parallel Bridge
1x EK-FB GA P67 (UD7)
1x EK Multioption X2 Res 250 Basic
1x EK Multioption X2 Res 250 Advance
2x EK-D5 Dual Top
4x Swiftech MCP655 with variable speed
EK and Bitspower Compression Fittings + rotary adapters
1/2" ID, 3/4" OD Tygon R-3603 Tubing

Hardware List:

CPU : Intel Core i7-2600k
Mobo : Gigabyte P67A-UD7-B3
Sound Card : Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro
GPU : 2x Sparkle GTX 580 + ASUS GTX 580 in 3-way SLI
PSU : 2x Corsair AX1200
Memory : Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 CL8 2x4GB
Storage : WD Caviar Black 1TB SATA III
Seagate 7200.10 320GB
Corsair Force 3 120GB SATA III SSD
Monitor : 3x Acer GD245HQ + Nvidia 3D Vision kit
Speaker : Logitech Z-5500 Digital
Keyboard : Logitech G19 and G13
Mouse : Logitech G9x

I hate the original P67A-UD7 NF200 Heatsink because it blocks the PCI-e x1 slot. I can't use my lovely Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi because my 3 GPU setup take all empty pci-e x16/x8 slots, so this waterblock is exactly what I need smile.gif

EDIT : I have no idea where to put the 240 rad so I delete it from parts list biggrin.gif

The idea is putting 2 HAF-X beside each other and take out the motherboard tray in one of them to make room for rads.

First, I disassemble the HAF-X, take out the optical and HDD rack

prepare the graphics cards. Started from my Sparkle GTX 580

to-do-lists:

-> make 3-way SLI Bridge nickel-coated (I like bling-bling)
-> prepare for new HDD racks, pump and res assemble location
