[Build Log 11/26/11] First Log for Sandy Bridge-E 3930K Build

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I'll finally be retiring my current system (old Core 2 Duo e8400 build) and doing a brand new build. This is a list of what I've ordered and received.

Ordered all of these parts below on Tuesday. Received everything except the motherboard earlier today because TigerDirect.com sucks. Waiting for a deal on the Crucial m4 SSD again, hopefully around Black Friday, before I purchase it unless the Intel 520 Series is released before then. biggrin.gif



I did have to make a slight change as the 360mm radiator included in the RX360 water cooling kit did not fit with my ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard in this case. There was a heatsink near the top of the motherboard, above the CPU socket, that did not provide enough clearance. Also the RAM is in the way as well even though it is low profile. I ordered a 240mm RX240 which should be here by midweek. All I'll have to do next weekend is mount the radiator then put the motherboard in and connect and fill the liquid cooling system. Once all that is done I'll just have to pop in both video cards and the hard drives. Then I'll set everything up which will probably be the longest step out of any of them. Can't wait to get this finished and up and running! biggrin.gif

I have a few pictures below. Sorry for the quality & size, I took them with my HTC Rezound that I got for $0.01. tongue.gif

If anyone is putting together a liquid cooled system and wants a 360mm radiator just let me know. It's pretty big, nearly as long as my entire midtower case. I can't sell it here because I don't have enough reputation to use the marketplace yet. If this paragraph goes against any rules just let me know and I'll remove it. smile.gif

you could mount the rad on top of the case with the input and output holes facing down and cut slightly over 5/8" holes right under the input and output so the tubes can connect to the rad, if you get what i mean... then mount the 3 120mm fans inside the case pulling air through the rad into the case.

looks like a great build

Yea, I could do this and I thought about doing just that. Once I put the fans on it sits up quite a bit off the top of the case with the RX360. I don't have a dust filter to cover the top of the case if I do this unless I put the top back on and put the screws through the foam. I've already ordered a RX240 that I'll be putting in so I figured I might as well wait. I won't have to drain the water cooling system if I do it this way. I've already waited two years to upgrade. I can wait for next weekend.

I actually ordered the RS240 at first but then I measured and a RX240 should work as well since it will be further towards the left side of the case. I'll receive both the RX240 and RS240 and I'll have my RX360 too if it doesn't sell on eBay within the next few days. I'll use whatever works better. Might even have to do a push/pull configuration. If I do that I may have to use the RS240 over the RX240.

I'm not sure what would be better. A RX240 in push OR pull configuration or a RS240 in push AND pull configuration. I'm thinking it would be easier and maybe better to just do the former. Will see when it all gets here. I think I might order another 3 pack of fans from NewEgg as well. Scythe Kama Flow or something similar. Maybe Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm, not sure yet. Will have to see what NewEgg has in stock right now.

Sweet! I am building an extremely similar system right now, although I got a 800D, bigger case for watercooling thumbsupsmiley.png

 

For fans, Gentle Typhoons are better, if you go push/pull you can have less noise for similar performance. I'd go with the larger rad & push into the case fans.

Just ordered:

2 Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm Case Fan - 1,850rpm
3 Scythe Kama Flow 2 120mm Case Fan - 1,900rpm
1 Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Maru2 140mm Case Fan - 1,700rpm

That should be plenty of fans and then some to fill up my case. Two 120mm fans at the front, two 120mm fans at the top, one 120mm fan at the rear, and one 140mm fan at the side panel.

I have an ASUS 24x DVD Burner for the Optical Drive for now. Might put a Blu-ray burner drive in later but I don't really use an optical drive much if at all these days.

My fans and radiator arrived earlier. I also ordered some dust filters from DEMCiflex at www.demcifilter.com earlier today. I know I could have done it myself using panty hose or something similar for much cheaper, but the filters were only $3-$5 a piece. Performance-PCs.com had the same brand and model of filters but wanted two to three times as much as they would cost direct from the company's site. I ordered enough for this system and for my previous system as well as one for my APC SmartUPS RT 1500VA. Also picked up a couple extras to save on shipping and in case I want to use them for something else in the future or if I somehow manage to damage one while cleaning it.

Couple more days and I'll be putting it all together. Hopefully I don't encounter any major issues. This will be my first water cooled build. The longest part of the build will likely be getting everything set back up how I want it in Windows and all my programs after a clean install. smile.gif

Yes! I like updates!

 

I recommend you do a draft of how you want everything, to make sure you order any 45 degree/90 degree's if needed!

 

And post picture of how you want things here so we can all see and comment wheee.gif

I quickly did a diagram in Paint.NET of what my fan layout is going to be for now. Sorry about the text being a bit hard to read in some places. I wasn't sure how to do outlined text in Paint.NET if it is even possible without plug-ins.

Other things I could do would be add two more fans to the radiator at the top of the case for a push and pull configuration. I'm not sure how well this will work out with my RX240 radiator. However, if it doesn't look like space will be an issue I may very well add two more Gentle Typhoon 1,850 rpm fans. Issue is I'd have to buy them and the only place I can find them new and in stock is at Amazon for $45 a piece. Having just two fans on the radiator should be enough for now. I'll probably do a push configuration with the fans mounted on the bottom side of the radiator. I have an extra Scythe Kama Flow 2 1,900 rpm fan that I might be able to mount somewhere else later, such as above the 5.25" drive bays.

Once I get everything up and running I'll be sure to do some overclocking and benchmarks. Even though 4.0 GHz would be plenty fast I'll probably aim for 4.5 GHz - 5.0 GHz for a 24/7 overclock. Though it's more likely I'll only run between 4.5 GHz - 4.8 GHz in a 24/7 configuration due to the amount of heat a six-core SB-E processor puts out.

I will put the rest of it together tomorrow afternoon sometime. All I have left to do is pop the motherboard in, mount the radiator and all the fans, set up my water cooling loop, fill and leak test the loop, install video cards and sound cards then test everything out and do a clean install of Windows 7. Should be finished with the actual building part of the system tomorrow evening provided I don't run into any major issues. smile.gif
