[Build Log] STORAGE MONSTER build

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
This thread is to document and also for some help with my water cooling, this is my 1st water cooled build, although I planned one a long time ago I never got around to it.

I was considering a 343B but I dont think I actually need it or have the budget to make good use of it.

I have decided on the PC-V2120 which I think is perfect for my goal and what I have to work with around my desk.

I am really after the quietest water pump(s) possible.

I am only considering cooling the CPU and GPU, VRM.



Explanation of choices

The planned Hardware:

SSDx2 Intel 520 240GB
Tower Lian Li PC-V2120
CPU 3770k bare die.
Mobo P8Z77-V DELUXE
RAM 2x4GB Dominator GT
Sound Xonar Essence ST using (PCIE to PCI adapter)
PSU Seasonic XP-1000
GFX: Zotac GTX 670
HDDs 3TB x4 Raid10
aquaero 5 LT USB fan and pump controller


Cooling:

Res: Aquabox professional Reservoir
Pump: Aquastream XT Ultra Pump x2
SR1 360, 120, 140

CPU Block: EK-Supreme HF - Acetal+EN (Nickel)
GPU EK-FC680 GTX - Acetal+EN (Nickel)


Tygon 2001!!
Swiftech Lok-seal compression fittings.

 


Using the ST on the PCI-e board

Overclocking the RAM

Delidding the CPU

HDD Silencing

XSPC pumps are in the res, and about as quiet as a water pump can be. They come in 360 rads which would be good.

Thanks but this machine will never render, compile and encode yes but no fancy stuff for that 16GB lol, its incase I wanna ramdrive a game.

Hmm this pump in the res in the rad is intriguing. Is it worth it??

I was thinking 2xD5 in the res and a blackice.

I have concerns about having the pump on the outside and only 1 of them due to noise.

Cooling parts decided on for now.

Plain and regular distilled water is a popular favorite as far as coolant goes. It helps a lot to have biocide such as PT Nuke or a silver kill coil, however.

I haven't heard of very many people using antifreeze lately. It does work as a biocide but could affect the metals in your loop.

I've been using 50/50 auto antifreeze mix since 2006 with copper/aluminum loops. I've never had an issue, no algae, no corrosion, nothing. I still completely drain and refill once a year though.
