[Build Log] Banchetto "Neverender" x79

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
HISTORY:
Part I: (01/2012) HAF X Painted White, Reverse ATX Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Components:
Case: Coolermaster HAF X
CPU: i7 2600k
Mobo: Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67
GPU: Crossfire AMD 6950 (Reference)
PSU: Corsair AX850

Watercooling Gear
CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee HD
GPU Block: 2 x Swiftech Komodo 6900
Pump: MCP655
-> Bitspower Top & Dress kit (Matte Black)
Rad: EX240
Rad: EX360
Fans: 5 x Cougar CF-V12HP Fans
Res: EK Multioption V2 250mm
Tubing: Primochill LRT White 3/8"ID 1/2"OD
Fittings: Bitspower Matte Black 3/8"ID 1/2"OD

I built this one back in May of 2011, and felt the need to put it under water in December.

I HEAVILY modded the HAF X:
Painted White
Reverse ATX Motherboard
Top mount PSU
Removed HDD Bays
Drilled fan holes for bottom mount 360 rad

But as it turns out, when you remove the HDD bays and most of the structural integrity of a HAF X, it's much less "sturdy" when you fill it full of copper and water. No accidents, but I just don't trust it.

Part II: (04/2012) Caselabs STH10 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

FINAL BUILD PICTURES:
Some Mediocre pictures I took of the "final build" when I was selling the STH10. It is not at all representative of the final project as I wanted it, due to hardware compatibility issues.

4/10 Update
Got the wiring done last night, and had some time to fiddle with other stuff. (Also hosted the images a bit larger this time, let me know what looks better.)

Yates sleeved up to the fan motor.

picture001tgh.jpg

Solding the cables together in a Y between every fan. Going 4:1 header, to make the cabling to the fan controller cleaner.

picture002ts.jpg

All wired up and working like a charm. The cable on the first fan is a bit long, I'll probably redo it later.

picture003zk.jpg


And time for a bit of a rant...
On my last build, I bought my D5 and all of the Bitspower accessories I could find--the Top and Dress kit. Was reasonably happy, until I wired up the build for the first time, and the pump top sprouted 4 micro leaks in the middle of the POM housing. It had multiple micro holes on the side. I couldn't be bothered to RMA it, I was in too much of a hurry to get everything up and running, so I patched it with some JB Weld Waterweld stuff. It held and didn't leak...but seriously Bitspower?

My patch job:

picture004xq.jpg


So this time around, I decided that the pump top was the first thing to be replaced, so I picked up an EK D5 top. I'm going to gauge how I feel about it before I buy the 2nd pump and top--but my initial impression is pretty good. I'll have to do something about those stickers on the pump though. smile.gif

picture005zp.jpg

I chopped the 3 pin header off of the pump, I can't see myself ever using it.

picture006sd.jpg


That's all for now, more tomorrow. And thanks for the subs!

4/12 Update
Small update...got a very exciting email a few minutes ago:

nowinstock.png

And a few minutes later...

tigerb.png

So hopefully I'll have a GTX680 on the way this weekend. I'll wait for the shipment confirmation to order a waterblock though tongue.gif

Should have some more case work done tonight, that's all for now

[sic]

Just got a shipping notification and tracking number for the 680, so I placed another order.
13 more Yates, praying for no bad eggs this time rolleyes.gif
Have never used Jab tech before--but their prices are great, and they're only a state over from me, so shipping should be quick. Pretty limited selection though--but they had what I needed.

jabm.png

I fit up the radiators and started working on placing fittings--I need to figure out what I still need. I can't find any way around using (a minimum of) 8 of the 90 degree fittings, so I'll need to pick up a few more of those.

4/16 Update
Got another update, I was playing around with some fittings and decided to mock up my motherboard to get an idea what the final look was going to be.
Also vinyl wrapped the SATA ports on the motherboard.

Black/red 550 paracord sleeving on the 24 pin, the EPS and PCI cables both match this, but didn't make it into these pictures.

picture001jk.jpg

I spun the Apogee block around so that I could make the bend from CPU block to Mobo block easier. The way I had it in my old build made the tubing kink pretty hard, I threw a wormdrive clamp on the tube to straighten it out, you can see that in this picture.

picture002hpo.jpg

Closeup of the SATA ports:
Before:

After:
picture003zj.jpg

Next target for vinyl wrapping is these guys:
picture004no.jpg


GTX680 should be here tomorrow, the last of the Yates and the Block/backplate for the 680 will be here Wednesday.

PS: If anyone knows where I can find a GTX260 Reference block (192 core), I would be eternally grateful. thumb.gif

5/9 Final Update
Been a while since I updated, and I have lots of pictures to upload. (None right now).

The build is "finished." Full of water, no leaks...And then disaster strikes.

My Maximus IV and/or 2600k are dead.

First boot up I'm stuck with a (Edit in later) Debug code, and red light on the DRAM check. Have tried 3 known working kits of RAM on the board in 1/2/3/4 stick configurations...RAM essentially isn't the problem. No bent pins on the socket either. So either the motherboard crapped the bed, or the IMC on my 2600k is toast. Unfortunately I don't have another 1155 board or processor to test either of them.

So for now, the STH10 has my old (x124 BSOD Happy) 920 and EVGA SLI3 board in it. More on that here.
Bright side is that temps are pretty good, 22C ambient--the 680 idles at 24-25C, peaks at 35C; and the 920 idles at 30C, peaks at ~45C. The 920 would probably be better, but I didn't even bother reapplying TIM. Was massively peeved about the 2600k dying and just wanted to get something to POST.

A followup on the JabTech fans too. They sent me 13 of the High speed models instead of the Medium speeds. A chain of ~10 "I didn't get your email" emails later, they finally offered an RMA, but I can't be bothered to send them.
Rads are setup...
480 - Push only, Yate Loon Medium
480 - Push/pull, Yate Loon Medium
240 - Push only, Gentle Typhoon AP-15
360 - Push/pull, Cougar Vortex


As you might imagine...this was all a bit discouraging. I'll post up some final pictures of the build, but I think this one's over. I'll likely be parting the build out to sell (when I get 35 rep) and recoup my losses into a mid ranged air cooled build. I missed my time frame for when I would have been able to really mess with a project of this calibur, and don't want to keep throwing money at it.

I'll put up some pictures later, probably tomorrow.

Build log ends here, see top for final build pictures for STH10. Sorry I didnt take anymore frown.gif

Phase 2 (Click to show)
STH10 arrived, assembly time!
(Time to apologize in advance for picture quality, my iPad is my best option for now.)

PART 1

The box...with my cell phone for comparison. This thing is going to be huge.
picture025c.jpg

Enough paper to choke an elephant
picture026ug.jpg

Everything unpacked, small parts, and instructions. That packet is thick, beware. This is going to be a project in itself.
picture028sh.jpg

Step 1 complete. We're now 3 smoke breaks into this build.
picture029v.jpg

Here we go, brace yourselves.
picture030az.jpg

3 days and a carton of smokes later...it's taking shape.
picture031ih.jpg

Another update? Did I even do anything since the last picture? I'm getting tired. Oh right, right, motherboard tray.
picture032wa.jpg

We're mobile!
picture033qv.jpg

Darkest/worst picture anyone has ever taken of this case.
picture034fz.jpg

PART 2
Case is together, going to start wiring the radiators up...
My test bench, old TX750 powersupply and fan controller. Testing the Yates for bad eggs.
picture036ba.jpg

Only 2 with grindy bearings out of 20 that I bought, not too bad.

Starting to wire the Fans together on the Rads, and sleeve them, had some Black MDPC sleeving left over from an old build.
Making some modifications to the housing on the Yates, to make sleeving easier on myself.
picture037yo.jpg

Getting rid of the little U tabs that hold the cables down...
picture038k.jpg

Much better
picture039o.jpg

Out comes the soldering gun, going to put some beefier 22AWG wire on the fans, I hate soldering those tiny little wires. Getting rid of the yellow RPM monitor lines too.
picture040je.jpg

Soldered up, and some heatshrink over the joints.
picture042eu.jpg

Now picture this...but 20 times over.
picture043z.jpg

That's about all I got done last night. Don't get me wrong, it was a lot of work smile.gif. Will finish wiring them together tonight, but that's all for now!

Yeah I have a bitspower dual D5 top, and just received the EK single D5 top today. I have to say I prefer the feel of the Ek. Plus you don't need to buy an overpriced dress kit to make it look nice. I'm going to try and take the sticker off with a hairdryer followed by some goo off.

Definitely, I remember opening my bitspower top and thinking about how cheap it felt, the EK feels more rugged, definitely worth the $40 you have to spend to get a decent top on a D5, even if it does have less outlet ports.

Let me know how the de stickering goes, my pump has a white "quality check" brand on it that withstood isopropyl. May have to break out the chemistry set to buff it off.

So hopefully I'll have a GTX680 on the way this weekend. I'll wait for the shipment confirmation to order a waterblock though tongue.gif

Should have some more case work done tonight, that's all for now.

Just got a shipping notification and tracking number for the 680, so I placed another order.
13 more Yates, praying for no bad eggs this time rolleyes.gif
Have never used Jab tech before--but their prices are great, and they're only a state over from me, so shipping should be quick. Pretty limited selection though--but they had what I needed.

I fit up the radiators and started working on placing fittings--I need to figure out what I still need. I can't find any way around using (a minimum of) 8 of the 90 degree fittings, so I'll need to pick up a few more of those.
