Corsair 800D is finally completed - After months of planning

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Alright, all my parts came in today and I changed out a few parts, here's the final rig for now:

I love to keep the front clean. I'm planning to get a Lamptron FC-8 and reverse mount it inside of the casing to lower all the fan speed down to a dead silent level


Dell 2007FP / Dell U3011 / Dell 2007FP
1200 x 1600 / 2560 x 1600 / 1200 x 1600
4960 x 1600


Trusty Saitek Eclipse 2, recently painted matte black. 2 years old, and still working as good as new. By far the best non mechanical keyboard I've ever owned, and I've owned a lot of keyboards. There's an MX5500 inside of my drawer right below the Saitek . Logitech G500, got it on sale. Looking to replace my mousepad, probably will get a Steelseries S&S.







There's still air in the res as I just flushed the system and these are brand new water.




Angle is very important for me. Keeping the bottom tube straight and the top tube naturally angled isn't easy.




5.1ghz 12 hour prime stable. CPU-Z is reading 1.5v Vcore but it's really 1.480 measured with my Mastercraft multimeter. Multimeter is about as accurate as most fluke DMM. I pulled 2 rams out and ran the rams at stock just to make sure I could pass prime. I've put back the other 2 pieces of 4gb and am now running 16gb @ 1.50v 1600mhz. Will prime this again tonight. For some reason I cannot run the ram at 1866mhz while many were able to oc this at 9 9 9 2x 2000mhz 1.5v.

Love the tidiness, very clean...

Is it my eyes or is that EK block not in lined with the GPU PCB?

It's some sort of optical illusion. The gap towards the back make the block seem to have larger spacing but they are actually flat. Also, the gpus are actually very slightly sagging towards the back. I gather it's the same with any gpus but it's a little more obvious when there's this much spacing in between. I don't think it'd do any harm to the pcie slot though

Oh in case people are wondering why's there only one tube going down to the bottom rad, the outlet is looped to the 360rad from behind of the casing. The loop goes:

Res -> Pump -> Rad 240 -> Rad 360 -> CPU -> Rad 120 -> GPU1 -> GPU 2

Water temp is about 8-10 delta.

Beautiful setup there. How much did the water setup cost if you don't mind me asking?

Not cheap, I've lost count but definitely over 1-2k in parts.

Part List:

- XSPC RX120
- XSPC RX240
- XSPC RX360
- Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850 x 6
- EK 6970 Acetal (Copper) FC Block x 2
- EK Supreme HF Acetal (Copper)
- EK Advanced 250 x2 Reservoir
- Laing DDC 3.2
- XSPC Pom Top v2
- XSPC White LCD temperature sensor x 1
- Primochill tubing 10ft (less than that used)
- Bitspower matte black stop fitting x 4
- Bitspower matte black sensor stop fitting x 1
- Bitspower matte black fill top
- Bitspower matte black straight compression x 9
- Bitspower matte black 45 degree double rotary x 5
- Bitspower matte black 90 degree double rotary x 1
- Bitspower mini extender x 1
- Bitspower triple rotary x 1
- Rubber grommet x 2 (not original corsair grommet)

Other MISC:

- Arctic Cooling MX-4 thermal paste x 1
- Tuniq TX-4 x 1 (wasted. Originally I bought all the nickel plated blocks, installed them then 2 days later I was informed that there was plating issue and this tube went down the drain) Also, DON'T ever buy this thermal paste, it's a POS compared to MX-4
- 99% Alcohol
- 10L distilled water (supermarket)
- Paint (repainted all my Rads before installation)
- Teflon Tape (T-Tape)
- Brasso (mandatory to polish the copper blocks when accidentally touched)
- Disposable gloves (mandatory to prevent the copper blocks from oxidizing)
- Zip ties (various size). I used a black zip tie to tie down the tubing around the bottom rad, through the bottom grill, to keep the tube straight. Otherwise the natural bend on the tubing would twist the tube outward, screwing up the symmetry.

Considering adding a fill top but I need to find a hole saw to make a hole in the casing. Also looking to add a red LED stop fitting into the Reservoir to make it glow red.

Yeah man, It isn't cheap for a nice custom loop with multiple blocks/rads.
I spent $1000 on just the watercoooling on this rig.
