[Build Log] CaseLabs STH10 BOINC Cruncher 2012

post #1 of 288
Thread Starter 
I pre-ordered a CaseLabs STH10 case and started the planning for this build while I wait on its delivery.

This computer will be a dedicated Boinc cruncher with 4 GPUs. Everything will be watercooled.


Main Components:

Case: CaseLabs STH10

Case Options:
Color: Black
ATX Layout: Standard (N/C), Reverse (N/C)
Form Factor: XL-ATX (N/C), HPTX (N/C)
MB Door: Ventilated (N/C), Solid (N/C), XXL Window (20.00)
Upper Chamber Covers: Ventilated (N/C), Solid (N/C)
Lower Chamber Covers: Ventilated (N/C), Solid (N/C)
Top Cover: Ventilated (N/C), Solid (N/C), Ext. Ventilated 120mm (60.00)
PCI Back Plate: Fan Holes (N/C), Hex Mesh (N/C)
Packaging: Flat-Pack/Unassembled (N/C), Assembled (N/C)


CPU: Intel i7-3930K (OC to 4.5 GHZ+ is the target)

MB: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme

RAM: Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-18662133 16GB (4x4GB)

Boot Disk: Intel 510 520 Series 120GB SSD

Data Disk: Segate 2TB SATA 6.0Gb/s x4

PSU: Corsair AX1200 x2 in top compartment

GPUs: EVGA Nvidia GTX570 SuperClock Cards with EVGA waterblock x4


Water Cooling Components:

CPU Block: XSPC Raystorm

Pump: Swiftech MCP35X2 Dual pump

Rad: Black Ice SR1 GTX 360 x2 in top compartment with push/pull fans

Rad: Black Ice SR1 GTX 560 x2 in bottom compartment with push/pull fans

Fans: Yate Loon 120mm Medium Speed x16 and Yate Loon 140mm Medium Speed x16

Fan Controller: Sunbeamtech Rheosmart 6 Fan Controller x2

Reservoir: EK MultiOption 400 Advanced Bitspower Z-Multi 250 Reservoir - Ice Red

Fittings: Bitspower compression and Koolance quick disconnects

Tubing: ClearFlex Masterkleer Dark Red 1/2" ID 3/4" OD

I've built several computers in the past, but all were air cooled. I did recently add a watercooling kit to my current main system. But that was just a learning exercise.

This build will be a full custom watercooled rig.

I have started a 3D mockup diagram using Sketchup. I will post that soon.

I welcome any feedback on the parts list and I will post pics along the way. But, this will be a slow build. I am also a photography hobbyist, so I hope the photos will be top quality.

Let the adventure begin..

Cheers,

[Edit 13-Feb-2012]: Changed the rads to the GTX series
[Edit 09-Mar-2012]: Changed the SSD to 520 series, the Res to Bitspower Z-Multi 250, and the tubing to Masterkleer Dark Red
[Edit 12-May-2012]: Change the RAM to Dominator GT 2133
[Edit 03-Nov-2012]: General cleanup of OP

Looking forward to this, since I will be doing a similar build once I get my case. Still waiting for Case Labs to ship the case. Hope it happens soon.

It will be nice to see how things go together with the new Case Labs STH10 as I fully plan on buying one in March! I'll be using Black Ice SR1 560 x2 in bottom compartment in a push only since I'm using these puppies below! biggrin.gif

Nice. Who makes those fan shrouds on your AP-15's ? I just bought 4 for an SR-1 480 but did not even consider a fan shroud. heard the fins in the SR-1's are tapered so they naturally act as like a shroud, but I think I may get some anyway.

FYI at 1850rpm you'd get better performance with a GTX over an SR1. Excited to see the build, can't wait to see the case come in.

It's the bgears 120mm to 140mm adapter. A 560 doesn't normally accept 120mm fans. It's not that big a shroud maybe 10mm or so. Martin seemed to find on his most recent shroud test that shrouds are radiator dependent, i.e. sometimes they help and sometimes they hurt.

The 120mm Yate Loon Mediums (D12SM-12) are 1650 RPM and the 140mm D14SM-12 are 1400 RPM. Would the GTX rads still be better than the SR1 rads? Why? Please explain to a newbee.

I've been learning more about how to use Sketchup. I did a mockup of the waterloop layout for my STH10 that I am waiting on. I found models of the BitsPower fittings on the net. These were very helpful.
This first pic shows the basic layout:
700
I do intend to use quick disconnect fittings where the tubes leave the motherboard tray and connect to the chassis. Just haven't drawn those yet.


This one shows the view in between the top rads:
700
The layout in the bottom is similar.

Any feedback on this proposed waterloop layout is welcomed.

Cheers,
