Corsair 800D "Black Gold" PC Mod - Watercooling Build

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey - long timer observer, decided to post a few pictures of my watercooling build with the 800D.

First here is my old air cooled Antec 902 that I will be removing the parts from to the new build. You'll get why I'm calling it "Black Gold" once you see the pictures below.
700

My plan is to run a dual loop, one for the cpu that goes to a 240 rad. And the other for the gpus in sli that go to the 360 rad. I have a pump for each loop.

This is whats going into the new build:

New stuff:
Corsair 1200w PSU
NZXT Sentry LX 2 Fan controller
Tecnofront Challenge X2 res
XSPC 360 and 240 rads
Swiftech MCP35B Pumps (x2)
Primochill White Tubing
3 LED strips and 2 Led plugs (for res)
Logisys 4 mode controller with remote (to control the LEDs)
Gentle Typhoon 120mm fans 1850rpm (x8)
EK cpu block and 2 EK Gtx 580 gpu blocks
Bitspower compression fittings

Old parts to be transferred:
i7-875K cpu
Asus P55 Deluxe mobo
Evga gtx 580 3GB (x2)
240 gb revodrive 3 x2
Asus essence ST soundcard
WD Caviar Black 1TB and 2TB
16GB Corsair Vengence memory


Tecnofront Challenge X2 reservoir
448

Some of the parts
700

Took out the harddrive cage from the bottom, cut out a hole for the 240 rad. Learned this from the Skullcrusher video on youtube.
700

Testing the LEDs..
585

Front view with the NZXT Sentry LX 2 installed..
700

Drain tube for CPU loop..
448

Overview, still waiting on some parts in the mail so not going any further yet...
700

Realized I didn't think of a drain tube for the GPU loop thumb.gif ... so order another T fitting and some extra tubing. Drilled some holes for the tubes and PCI-E cables.

Got bored waiting and didnt like the way the cage looked with the corsair toolless design missing (i have removed it for the res) so I cut out a viewing window for the pumps!
700

Where the two Swiftech pumps are going..
700[/URL]

Overview as of now - should get the T fitting, sleeving, and extra tubing soon.
700

Ok so my plans now are to finish the loop (with the gpu loops drain tube) and single sleeve the PSU, PCI-E cables, and anything else visible (ordered sleeving from FTW PC).

Realized I couldn't make fillports at the top since the DVD drive will block the res' oulets - not the end of the world - ill just have to remove the fan controller and DVD drive when it comes time to refill. If you have any ideas of other ways to put in fillports for this build let me know.

Will update with more pics once I have more things come in... thanks for looking!

Damn, too bad you don't have a 1155 socket CPU...ASRock makes a black/gold theme mobo for the LGA 1155 socket: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007627%2050001944%20600093976&IsNodeId=1&page=2&bop=And&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&CompareItemList=280|13-157-271^icn_ironegg_overlay%23%2C13-157-264^13-157-264-TS%2C13-157-269^13-157-269-TS%2C13-157-265^13-157-265-TS%2C13-157-279^13-157-279-TS

Subbing this thread though, I'm interested in what you're going to do. biggrin.gif

Yea I cant say I haven't been thinking about a new mobo and cpu. That ASRock looks solid - but I would need something with another PCI-E slot - the Revo needs at least one with a PCI-E x4. My plan was to wait for Ivy bridge, unless performance/price isnt worth it over sandy bridge. Thanks for the link.

...PART 2...

So after putting all this time and $ into this project I couldn't stomach breaking the black/gold theme with a blue motherboard. As you can see I upgraded to a ASRock z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 with a Intel i7-2600K (while recouping 70% of the cost by selling the old cpu/mb on ebay). I spray painted the waterblock thumbscrews gold too.

Dude this is looking awesome so far, I really like the color scheme ( simple, cool, different ). Even the fans haha

Questions: I also have an Antec 902, however what door do you have? I like your door WAY more than the door that came with my 902. I take it you modded the case door?

Also, What is that controller looking device on the front of your 902 ( it seems to have a display ).

Thanks!

Thanks man. Yep your right I did mod the case window - never liked how it looked originally (heres a good video: http://youtu.be/80yq3PEWj-0).

Fan controller is by nMediaPC

Good luck with the mod!

Looks too difficult for me haha, I'd be too scared of ruining my case.

Thanks for the links though!

If the fan controller was cheaper I would consider it haha, I am cheap

Haha, I knew you would get one of those motherboards when I linked them. It would be impossible to consider the project finished without one. rolleyes.gif

By the way, what's with the water cooling tube going outside of the PSU section thing

Ha yep wayne you opened pandoras box with that link - couldn't resist biggrin.gif. The loop you see outside of the PSU is for the gpus, which isn't complete yet - all thats finished is the cpu loop (i had just wanted to throw up some pictures of the lighting).

My sleeving from FTWPC.com came today - seems to be of really good quality stuff. Now Ill be going ahead and single sleeving the Corsair 1200w black/white (was thinking spray painting the white gold but not sure if that will last). Anyway hopefully the build will be complete over this weekend thumb.gif.
