This. Also, the connector pin might get a bit loose, use a small needle nose pliers to secure the connector to the remaining wire. I have a pin crimping tool and some spare pins. The tool comes in handy to recrimp the connectors when I remove the mole harness. I have the pins as back up.

Well, I still got the itch for upgrading, so I picked up a Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 and plan on getting a 2500k in the near future. For now, there really isn't much to add to this log besides pictures of the board once I get it, but maybe in a month or so when my funds have "recovered", I'll have the CPU and everything installed.

Motherboard came in today:








Now I just need to pick up some RAM and the CPU. However, that won't be until maybe another month or so...

Alrighty, since I last posted here, I managed to do the following:

get another monitor arm and a new third monitor
get new RAM
get 2600k
put it all together

Here are the pictures and details:

Monitor arms/mounts. I have a dual and a single:

Monitors (****ty iPod pictures):

317510_280193075338635_100000438333570_1093326_1568779784_n.jpg

16GB of RAM

305360_280193145338628_100000438333570_1093328_1719537366_n.jpg

Intel 2600k:

385530_321142657910343_100000438333570_1223326_1354280295_n.jpg

Previous setup. I had to drain the loop and remove all the tubes that were attached to something on the motherboard, so I can switch the motherboards out

383150_322169254474350_100000438333570_1226056_328753738_n.jpg

Motherboard removed (I did this in the garage, so the change in temperature caused the empty reservoir to fog up)

382819_322169467807662_100000438333570_1226057_1385234336_n.jpg

I guess i didn't clean the radiator enough, even though I felt like I spent 3 hours doing it haha. The water was ran for about 5 months

385108_322169721140970_100000438333570_1226058_445060465_n.jpg

Old TIM on the CPU block

386711_322170011140941_100000438333570_1226059_786153608_n.jpg

After cleaning the block (inside and out) overnight, I put the 2600k in place:

407590_322703184420957_100000438333570_1229178_1903441447_n.jpg

My block is a bit old now, probably should look into a new one sometime

399850_322703254420950_100000438333570_1229179_181687744_n.jpg

CPU block installed:

394297_322703341087608_100000438333570_1229180_22195466_n.jpg

Motherboard installed

405199_322703437754265_100000438333570_1229181_121291265_n.jpg

Tubes reconnected

402938_322703531087589_100000438333570_1229182_546363935_n.jpg

Leak testing and cleaning/rinsing with vinegar/distilled water (forgot to disconnect the fan controller, but I just ended up turning them off via the controller). I had a small leak in the fittings on the bottom of the reservoir. The o-rings seem to have been compressed quite a bit, and when moving things in/out of the case, I must have made them a bit loose.

399202_322703717754237_100000438333570_1229183_1101097926_n.jpg

Leak testing and cleaning done, as well as bleeding. Everything in good order.

392244_323406951017247_100000438333570_1231570_51432252_n.jpg

After installing drivers, I snapped this photo. Running at stock speeds and I forgot to get CPU-z updated

This is a Hackintosh, so after everything was squared away in regards to running Windows, I was ready to configure OSX. My office was a bit of a mess during this since I was using my older iMac to install OSX to my harddrive and using my laptop as a reference/resource station with the steps/instructions in what I was doing

380939_323609750996967_100000438333570_1232133_1477436502_n.jpg

I was too lazy to put my harddrive into an external enclosure. Probably should have, but it's all in the past now haha. I am installing OSX via FireWire

402563_323609987663610_100000438333570_1232134_913730578_n.jpg

Booted up

398398_323610347663574_100000438333570_1232137_1605889403_n.jpg

Done messing with the hardware, so it's all sealed up

393990_323610684330207_100000438333570_1232141_2037835352_n.jpg

Stock settings

403664_323611134330162_100000438333570_1232142_27596008_n.jpg

Overclocking now. Started with 4.5 ghz since that is where I would most likely settle into for everyday usage

402559_324088490949093_100000438333570_1233697_1066999284_n.jpg

I did manage to get stable at 4.7 ghz though

390771_324622644229011_100000438333570_1235770_2104615555_n.jpg

In the end, I settled with 4.5 ghz. Idling at 35C with 22C ambient. Under load, the max is 60C but usually hovering around 55C. Definitely satisfied with it all.

Well that's the end of this build. It was really my first major build because my previous one didn't require much work. I had a lot of fun and intend to continue doing it in the future, after my funds recover haha.

Hope you enjoyed it!
