Current Build Shopping List

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
**Shiney Pictures of posible case powder coating, \\o/ SketchUp

after a couple of weeks reading up on this, i have compiled a componant list for my watercooling rig, i was wondering if you can give me the Thumbs up, or down on the List, or any ideas when all the parts arrive and i finish with the case, ill will probably post a nice build log in here

This build is going to be based in my TJ07, which i am modding / powdercoating. so it can acomidate a 360 rad in roof, and 480 rad in the base of the case.

here is my current list for my build, i want to build a system where i could easily upgrade to sub 12nm chips in a few years, or add in watercooled gpus(if i win the lottery :3)
hence the dual bay resovoir, and for the system to run pretty quite as i am not part of the loud headphones bregade


Laing DDC (e.g. MCP355) + acteal Top
Supreme HF CPU Waterblock from EK COPPER/Nickel
EK Water Blocks EK-FB RE3 Acetal+Nickel, (not willing to change as i allready own this, explanation why below :3)
EK 5.25" Dual Drive Bay Spin Dual Loop Reservoir : Black Acetal
Black Ice SR1 480
4x Xigmatek XLF 120mm LED Case Fan : XLF-F1253
Lamptron 4 Channel Fan Controller in Black : FC3
3-4 Masterkleer 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD (13-19mm) Flexible Tubing : UV Red
10 X EK PSC Thread Compression Fitting 1/2" ID - 3/4"


(the fans are not definite, i just want some half decent Red LED fans for the rad, also i am pretty good with a soldering iron, and fidily little wiring so i am not bothered if you can point me in the direction of some decent 120mm fans which i could mod with leds)
EDIT - I could probalby pick up some CoolerMaster R4-L2R-20AR-R1, they have a RPM of 2000, with reasonable noise, and some nice shiney red leds, which should look quite good for what i have in mind


also i am slighty concerned about corrosion so the NickelPlated Cpublock + Motherboard Block may cause some issues with the copper rad?

also, i currently own the Asus rampage 3 Extreme and EK Water Blocks EK-FB RE3 Acetal+Nickel, as i got this mobo along with the Waterblock resonably cheeply of a freind, as he was upgrading to the Sr2 monster :3. (also berfore you herp at me, i currently have the stock heatsink fitted as i am on air)

also i here is a rough outline of the loop i am thinking of dooing, \\o/ Paint



So please post away, what you think of my current shopping list, and anything i can do to improve it, with out going into corrosion issues

List looks good. One thing I'd change is your fans. The Xigmatek XLF's only have an RPM of 1500. The Black Ice rads have fairly large FPI's, meaning that you'll probably need fans with higher RPM/static pressure. I know the GT2150's can be ordered through our group buy thread, for 9 bucks each. They have a pretty decent RPM as well as static pressure.

Also, you don't have to worry about galvanic corrosion between nickel and copper. The blocks are actually made from copper, but electrolytically plated with nickel. This prevents normal oxidative corrosion of copper from occurring. Your block should last longer (without showing signs of corrosion) because of it.

See if you can find the static pressure rating on those fans. Normally it wouldn't be too much of a big deal, but the Black Ice radiators have very dense fins (something like 20ish FPI IIRC). If those fans lack static pressure, then your cooling may take a hit.

Now that your picture's up, I think you can clean up the tubing a little bit. Loop order doesn't matter, just keep your tubing to a minimum and watch for kinks. If it were me, my loop would go: Res>Pump>480 Rad>Chipset>CPU>Res.

Also, if you wanna clean up your loop a little bit, you can use a XSPC dual bay res and lose the acrylic top for the MCP355 as well as the spin res

i have managed to dig out the data sheet for the fans i mentioned above, (CoolerMaster R4-L2R-20AR-R)

Speed (R.P.M.) 2000 R.P.M.
Air Flow (CFM) 69.69 CFM
Air pressure (mmH2O) 2.94 mmH2O

also what i have been reading about the Black ice Sr1, it is built in mind for lower RPM fans

Oh sorry, I misread your rad as a BIX, not an SR1. Yeah the original fans you listed should be fine, as well as the CM R4's that you found.

Check around on OCN I am pretty sure there is someone in the artisan department that does case painting.
