My first build log

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Lately i've had the urge to upgrade my computer and revamp it basically fromt he ground up.
I have gone from a EP45-UD3P with a QX9650 and a GTX 460 to a newer rig now and I have never done a build log before so I plan on starting back from scratch and this is going to be over a couple months time and i plan to also WC this rig. This will be the first water-cooled rig that i have done. So please bear with me haha.

I have recently Gotten a Sabertooth P67 and a i7-2600k so i am going from there
I am going to be running two OCZ Agility 3's one is 120GB and one is 90GB.
The 90GB is going to have my OS and all critical Applications while all of my other frequent programs that are lower priority are going to be on the 120GB.

I have also obtained a HAF X and Also have one 570 and will be getting the other next week mon or tue.
I plan on doing the water cooling after i get everything running and cables pretty much run.
I am also going to be sleaving the cables on my new 1000W TR2 RX.(I plan on doing this next month.

I will be updating with pics and lots of them and I really hope that people will follow me and even offer some advice as i am not very good with cable management and as this is my first water cooled rig i home some of the WC Crew help with some suggestions as well.

If you guys want more info about what all is going to be in the rig i have all the parts that are going to be in besides the WC stuff down below in my sig.

Thanks guys will be updating soon

Well sorry for the lack of updates but since this is my first custom WC rig i've not had much exp with fittings. I at first got compression fittings but have run into problems with one of my rads and also the fittings dont seem to want to stay on nor the tubes so i see now why everyone uses barbs instead.

I am getting a new rad as it didn't fit in the back of my case. and also barb fittings as well. they should be here in about 11 hours from the time of this posting

Well a couple nights ago i installed my Watercooling loop but the bad thing was is that right at midnight I discovered a leak.

That leak was caused by a loose fitting on the res. it was very small but then i had a heck of a time driaining it and my from porch now looks like someone was murdered as it was blood red coolant.

And there is also a stain on my carpet. I am just hoping that it didnt do any damage to any of my hardware some leaked onto one of my 570's so thats the one i have to worry about.

None got onto the motherboard so that shoudl be good. I didnt have any current going to any of the actual hardware as i used a spare 850w psu using the always on trick.

I shold be getting new clamps monday or tuesday and also i am going to get some quick disconnects that are going to go on the res so that i can take it out if need be without draining the loop.
