I would like a beast setup like what we have seen on the 900D Demo video of the water cooling capabilities. Money is not really an object. Since I am a water cooling newb, I don't really know about the "gold standard" setups to get. I understand how to put everything together, and am fairly comfortable with plumbing and outdoor fountain work (Sort of similar idea with tubes, pumps, reservoirs, etc). I also have watched a crap-load of videos on setting up a custom water cooled pc (The Linus videos) as well as read several forums explaining what everything does. I have a reasonably good understanding of what every item required for custom watercooling does (in terms of function), I just don't know what the "good brands" or "good models" to seek are. I have always done things in excess, so I would like to keep that track record for my first cooling project. Just need to figure out what will be my ideal build. I do know I would like to at least have 2x480 rads and possibly a 360 rad in the front in push/pull(Overkill for no reason other than...Why not?).

My setup currently is this:
Components:
-Asus Rampage IV Extreme Mobo
-16GB (4x4) of 1866 Dominator Platinum Ram
-Intel 3930K CPU
-EVGA GTX Titan (GPU) (will also be getting a second for SLI- might wait a bit for this though)
-AX1200I (PSU)
-WD Black Harddrive (2TB)
-2x 240GB Neutron GTX SSD
-1x LG Blu-Ray Writer drive

Cooling:
Corsair H110 (looks like not gonna be used anymore)
Stockpile of AF120's, AF 140's and SP120's

I would say my budget for Liquid cooling would be preferably under $1500. If solid setup was under $1000 that would also be nice.

I don't know you might struggle to get a really good setup for that price depending on what you cool, If you do some bargain hunting you should be fine. I ordered the following and It cost me about $1700
-2x D5 pumps with Bitspower mod kit and dual top
-27 Bitspower fittings
-XSPC RX240, RX360 and RX480 (1 each)
-EK Tube Res
-EK Supremacy CPU
-EK Mobo Block
-2x Heatkiller 7970 block and backplates

At least you have a ballpark figure. I went into it expecting to spend less than $500, uh-uh no way

and have used both the h100 and h100i. I recently switched over to customer loop and now have the cpu cooled. Just waiting for the gpu blocks to finish the loop. If you're in Canada you should check out Dazmode. He's got awesome advice and really great videos for cooling. GOod luck.

I can't wait to see everyone's build. Will be a watercooled revolution. 900D is simply a beautiful canvas for the artwork that is organized liquid cooling.

I could pay more I would just prefer to pay less. that setup does look pretty darn solid though. I would love to see some photos of that in the 900D!

haha I'm probably going to get mine after everyone else as I'm in Australia but there will definitely be a build log, also that $1700 included about $100 shipping and I could have saved $100 by not using bitspower but since I think your near the US it will be cheaper for you so you will certainly be able to have an awesome drool worthy setup. (you know you want to pay more devil.gif )

I havent been this anxious for a piece of hardware to finnish my build in a long time...

Im interested to hear where the other Aussie's are getting their 900D from? ... ive contacted Altech already awaiting a reply...

on another note are we going to post our build photo's in this thread?
post #3785 of 5815
Some of you guys will get your cases this week, and I'm sure there'll be a 900D Owner's Thread here somewhere.

Some of the reviewers have had theirs for weeks now, and are chomping at the bit to post their reviews. Some of you will post unboxings and system builds before they will.

Tuesday the 16th is embargo lift for reviews, so I'm sure a couple of you might beat that date. But realistically the 10 guys who bought direct own the only 10 retail cases in the wild.

I can't wait for the end of this week. So I assume based on this update, the Cases arrived safely to the distribution center and will be heading out Monday as planned?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?biggrin.gif

Memoryexpress.com in Canada has already ordered, and will be getting their shipment "sometime in May".
So add on 5% sales tax = $366.45

SOON! I have time to finish planning my build now.
Buy a fan controller or rely on the PWM headers with a PWM splitter?
Choices...

Besides talking to you guys, I don't work weekends, so I don't know if they arrived at the warehouse ok until Monday.

Hi George,

I was told by the french shop where I preordered my 900d that they will have it in stock on April 16th. Does it seem realistic to you ?

I also saw that a seller from Amazon.fr Marketplace would supposedly have five 900d in stock and sell them at an exorbitant price (489€ = 636$) =>

http://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B00B1R8JT0/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AZ2ULHVCV3PX7

How is that possible ?

(Sorry for my poor english).
