My Magnum TH10 Build WhiteKnight

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Well, I did it, I just ordered my TH10. I have to say, Jim answered every question I had (and there were a lot of them) but when you are going to spend what you spend on a CL case, you want to ask every question you can think of.

I am upgrading from my Corsair 800D, I never thought the day would come that I would find a case better than the 800D, then I stumbled upon this vendors forum and WOW is all I can say. I will have to say my wife is done with the upgrading, so this will be my last one for a long time. She keeps saying I am going to upgrade her, but come tomorrow it will be 11 yrs of marriage and I won't be upgrading her, she has put too much time into training me so I can't go through all of that again. (hehe)

Build Details....
CPU - Intel SB 2500K (OC'ed to 5.01)
MoBo- ASUS P8P67 DELUXE (REV 3.0)
Memory - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB)
GPU - 2 - XFX HD-697A-CNFC Ver 1.1
PSU - Corsair AX850 - (plenty of power for what I need)
HD - 4 x 1TB in RAID 5
HD - 4 x 2TB (storage only)
Optical Drive - SATA - Blueray, SATA - DVD RW+-
Monitors - 4 x Asus VE248H 1 over 3 Eyefinity
Monitor Stand - Ergotech Stand (AMAZING QUALITY)
Fan Controller - Scythe KAZE-Q 12 Channel Fan Controller - Black (will be painted white)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Water Items -
CPU - Watercool HEATKILLER® CPU Rev3.0 1155 LC
Graphics Cards (GPU):2 x Swiftech KOMODO-HD6900 v-2
RAM - may change memory so I can water-block it, can't with vengeance
Rad - XSPC RX480 (Video Cards), XSPC RX240
Pump 1 - MCP 655 w/pump mod kit and Bitspower Mod Top V2 - Acetal
Pump 2 - Still deciding
Tubing - PrimoFlex Pro (white and UV blue)
Thermal Paste - Shin Etsu X23-7783D
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fun Items -
MDPC-X sleeving - White and Blue (b-magic)
Ton of Screws and mounting pieces from Nils to dress it up even more.
Bitspower - TONS of nipples, 45's, 90's, etc.


A lot of the items are in route, from talking with Jim, he thinks the case will ship Tuesday. Between now and then I have a ton to do. I am stuck as far as re-sleeving goes, I am waiting on my order to arrive from Nils, I think it should be any day now. I have an order from performance-pcs coming today and an order from FrozenCPU. Once the Nils order arrives I can get to work so by the time the case comes I can start working.

Just wanted to say thanks to Rocky for the inspiration and forcing me to pull the trigger on the TH10 in White! I am very happy to be part of the CL family!

I will take some pics as soon as I get the package start rolling in.

Thats gonna me a great build, great parts, an NICE CASE, good luck

I guess, us, watercoolers and modders, have hard time with our wives when we are starting to have new idea about our build.

Rocky has a wonderful case, with the knowledge and money you have, you'll be able to accomplish a wonderful build too

Ok, after talking to Rocky, he convinced me to buy the pedestal, I think he works for CL

I am going ahead with the the pedestal for this baby, might as well do it right the first time. (glad I wasted the money on the MCP655 upgrade kit, now it won't be seen after I install it in the bottom)

Went ahead and ordered Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 400 - POM x 2, I am only going to have 2 loops at this time, I will go ahead and upgrade the 360 to another 480 rad, that poor Rad is only going to have to cool 1 x SB 2500k, seems like a waste of a 480.

I guess I will post this question, would it be better to just get a RX360/RX240 instead of a 2nd 480 like I am thinking?

2nd question.

I have MDPC-X white and blue (b-magic) colored sleeve, I am going to go with a White TH10, I have white tubing and I am about to buy blue tubing for the 2nd loop, do you think the white case, white tubing, white sleeving with some blue sleeving mixed in will look ok? I can't change the sleeve (already spent an arm and leg on it) so that is out of the question. I am running 7/16 tubing, but Fezer doesn't sell in 7/16, do you think these 2 blues will be ok?

TUBING


SLEEVE


Or should I go clear and find some dye and dye the crap out of it?

Thanks everyone!

Teaser of the CPU (only played with a short time), I will try and get 5.2+ out of it.
