FINAL RESULTS



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Build Log


Like the title says I'm starting a TJ07 build log. I have no clue what to name this project so I'm letting the forum members choose a name. Thank you to all the forum members for your inspiration and knowledge that you have imparted on me while lurking around. I hope everyone enjoys this build.

Background:

I have owned my TJ07 case since 2007 and it has served me well. This will be my fifth build in the case and I can say without a doubt it has been a pleasure working with it.

1st attempt at watercooling And apprentley no cable management skills either.



2nd attempt yeilded these results. Little better cable management. Learning is occurring.



3rd attempt at perfection. Hardly close.



4th try and my most recent build!



Parts List

Silverstone TJ07 Internals Powder coated
Intel Core i7 2600k
Asus P8z68 V-pro
Corssair Vengance 8GB (1600)
Evga GTX 580
Silverstone ST-85F PSU
Crucial M4 (64GB) Boot (128GB) Program
ASUS Blu Ray Burner
Silverstone HDD 5.25' bay

Water cooling Parts

EK Full Cover 580 GTX
EK Backplate

Thermochill PA 120.3
Swiftech MPC 655 pump (variable)

*Pending money situation I may splurge and get compression fittings and a 480 rad. Any thoughts?

Now on to the pictures and the best part of the thread. I plan on updating this step by step and taking a ton of pictures. I know the parts list is not over the top, but I thought it would be fun to document the process. Enjoy.

Thanks for looking....

I woke up this morning armed to disassemble the TJ07 once again. After an hours work here is what I ended up with. Note the last picture is all the internal parts being sent to the shop for powder coating. Color, flat matte black.





After taking the GTI out for a ride to the local shop were the internals were dropped off I found a package waiting at the front door! Inside were a few more goodies. Fans, GPU water block, tubing, silver kill coil and a phoboya fan port. Today is a good day.





Next I decided to take some pictures of the various parts scattered around the house. Enjoy.













That is all for today. If anyone has a good idea for a project name, I'm all ears.

Update

Pulled the GTX 580 apart and put the EK block and back plate on. Overall the process went well but the thermal pads are a pain in the arse. The standoffs make the block installation a lot easier.

I was debating an all black theme with LED accent lighting through out the case. Probably a mix of UV, Blue and Bright White LED's. I have never used them though. Looks like its time to do some research.

That sounds like my cup of tea. I still dig the use of UV/blacklight over paint anyday

Update

Yesterday was an extremely busy day and I'm happy to report the computer is complete. Well, sort of. My day started off by heading out to pick up the internal pieces of the TJ07. 100$ later I was handed a box with 16 pristine matte black powder coated pieces of sheet metal. Next began the mad dash home to start assembly of the case. I did notice that some of the thinner pieces of sheet metal were warped and bent a little, maybe from the powder coat process? One suggestion to those whole follow and take apart a case. Take a ton of pictures of the location and type of each screw. This alone would have saved me 45 minutes. Located below are pictures!









-------------Lunch Break-----------

Burger and fries anyone? Gotta love Steak-N-Shake. While I was out I stopped by microcenter and picked up a fan controller! Best 45$ investment of the entire build.

Clean up

After lunch I started cleaning all my components; waterblocks, pump, radiator, ect. In my previous loop I was using Fesser UV blue dye, what a pain that is to clean up. It left a blue film over everything. Nothing some boiling distilled water and a tooth brush cant fix. Note, Boiling water will blister skin if you spill it.

Final notes

Lighting. This is the next project I will undertake when I have more time and money. Right now the CFL bars look horrible. It will be replace by LED's in the future.

Zip/Cable ties are fantastic. Cant count how many I used.

Total build time, just under 7 hours.

Gentle Tyhoon AP-15's when hooked up to a fan controller are FANTASTIC.


Final Pictures











Thanks For looking

ThankS

Fan Controller is a Scythe Kaze Master Pro. 6 Channels with 1 amp per channel. It seems to do a great job. No complaints. Full range of control, 0 rpm - 1850.

Oh and Rep for following the build, much appreciated!

Great choice on the fan controller. I use them in my builds and love them. I'm sure the blue goes well with the color scheme as well. I'm looking at doing another silverstone build but I wanted to go with a red theme....wish they made the Kaze in red
