Been on the forum quite a while, but I really don't post much. I've more been soaking up information for almost the past 5 years. This is my first attempt at a WC build, and I'm posting here because I'm hoping to get some compliments and constructive criticism along the way. I went a little overboard, but that's ok. I'm not married so I have nobody to answer to. hahaha. This will be kind of a long build, because the last piece going in the computer will be an Ivy Bridge cpu, but there's still plenty to do til then! You could say this is murderbox inspired, but I read post for post every TJ07 build, I just love them to death! Anyway...

Main parts:

Case: TJ07
Board: R4E 2011
Processor(s):SB-E, IB, IB-E
Ram: 32gb Corsair Dominator 2133
HDD: 2x Force GT 120 GB
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200
GPU: 2x GTX560 TI (decided to use these since I had them and hold out for next gen cards)

I got a couple of pm's asking about the board and processor combo. I know that SB-E and IB are different sockets. The end result of this build will be Ivy Bridge-E. I will get a SB-E to start, then swap my boards out (my sigrig has MIVE-Z) to play with Ivy, then I will be swapping the R4E back in to finish up with IB-E and a couple 780s when it's released.

WC Parts:

EK-MultiOption RES X2 - 250 Advanced - Liquid Cooling Reservoir
PrimoChill PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubing 1/2"ID 3/4"OD with 1/8" Wall - 10ft Retail Pack - Clear
Bitspower G1/4" Female / Female Pass-Through Fitting - (Fillport) - Matte Black
Bitspower G1/4" Matte Black Dual Rotary 45-Degree Compression Fitting CC5 For ID 1/2" OD 3/4" Tube
Bitspower G1/4 Thread 90-Degree Rotary 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Compression Fitting - Matte Black
Bitspower Ultimate G 1/4 Thread 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Compression Fitting - Matte Black
EK Supreme HF Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Block w/ Lv 3 - Acetal + Electroless Nickel Plated, EK Supreme HF Jet Plate #6
2x Swiftech MCP35X 12v PWM Controlled Water Pump (series)
EK 5.25" Mountable DDC Dual Top V2. - Black Acetal - Laing DDC
2x EK Corsair Dominator Series X4 Ram Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal + Electroless Nickel Plated
EK ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Full Board Cooling Block Kit - Acetal + Electroless Nickel Plated
2x EK GeForce 560 GTX V2 VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal + Electroless Nickel Plated

(some stuff isn't on there because I've already received it see below.)

I'm not really a case modder, and I really don't have any experience in case building. I want to learn, but I figured a TJ07 wasn't the best place to start. Before you hate too much, I do have an old Cooler Master Wavemaster mid tower that I'm going to experiment with later on to learn. UNTIL then, I decided to go ahead and purchase a modded case from ChilledPC. I must say tom did an excellent job on the case and I am very happy! I've had the case for a couple weeks and I just started getting some parts in, so here's a few to get me going.

PLEASE feel free to comment on anything you think that could be improved, or changed at any time. Like I said, it's my first time and I welcome any information that can help me. I'm sure spending enough, I don't wanna mess up smile.gif

Subbed bro, have you tested fitting the motherboard into the case yet? Does the top rad and fans not interfere (contact) the mother board at all?

Edit: And which backplate are you using? Not the Chilled PC one is it? My one wont line up if I use the higher mother board try rail on the top like you have. Looks really clean

Thanks smile.gif

I don't have the motherboard yet, it should be here sometime next week. I have a Maximus IV extreme in my sigrig that I'm gonna test fit in the case to see. But the top has a 6mm spacer that the fans fit into, and they say with the spacer, 25mm fans and my MCR320, that there should be plenty of room. Also, since its reverse ATX, the only thing at the top is the gfx cards, so I think it will fit fine, and not look too squished since I'm not using the last PCI-e slot.

As for the backplate, I ordered from FrozenCpu, so it's not the chilled pc one.

Went to MicroCenter today and picked up two big parts that hurt my wallet pretty bad smile.gif Motherboard and PSU. The rad clearance at the top is unbelievable. I went with the MCR320 because it's what ChilledPC recommends. FrozenCPU was originally sold out and and I was going to go with an EX360 because it's only 2mm thicker. Thank god I didn't. There is no space between the rad and the motherboard. In fact, I think it might even be touching. It went in effortlessly, so I think all will be ok smile.gif Kinda ruins the pans I had about the PW/reset wires coming from the top though =p


What are people's opinions of the new EKWB nickle stuff? I've heard good and bad. the Acetal black really fits the theme i'm going for though.


heres some pics. Posting a link to an album too which has more, i'll put it in OP.


So close...

Looking at them side by side, you've got your work cut out. My mb is touching with the MCR230 and thats with a 6mm spacer. The 480 is damn near 1/2 inch thicker LOL. I wanna see this =p

Hey guys, I have a question. I'm about to order tubing and all the WC blocks. Looking at the board, I'll be cooling both sets of ram, the cpu, and the board block which is the bridge and the MOSFET, but they're all really close together, so there's going to be a lot of tight bends. I was going to order 1/2 ID 3/4 OD primochill tubing, but should I use a smaller diameter tube on the account of all these tight bends? What do you guys recommend? I don't want to get a tube that's gonna kink every bend I make, and I want to use a little amount of 90s as I can. here's an image showing how close the inlet/outlets are to the cpu and just how close together everything will be.

It is his reason why I replacing all of my Bitspower 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD compression fittings with 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD compression fittings because of the PrimoChill PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubings incredible bending radius! Everything is looking good!
