1. Opening:
This project is my first personal custom loop build. I have done one other modding and cooling project for a friend named Huskie. It was a dual loop 800D, very fun! The goal for me is to make a clean build with little cable showing. Black Ice will be Black base with all white accents. There will be case mods and major liquid cooling components.

2. Sponsors:

I would like to thank Coollaboratory for sponsoring my project with two of their amazing products! Liquid Pro and Liquid Ultra are great products and I highly recommend them to anyone!


NoiseBlocker makes the best fans on the market and they were kind enough to send me their newest line of E-Loop Fans. These fans are remarkably advanced and look great. These badass fans will look amazing in this build.


Ice Dragon Cooling is an amazing nano fluid that can outperform distilled water by almost 20%, I am proud to be sponsored by such an amazing company with so much potential. I cannot wait to see what they come out with next.


ModDiy is the largest online site for DIY parts for modding your system. Eric hooked me up with my crimper which works flawlessly and all of my connectors for my cables. Props to ModDiy!

Update: 7/14/2014

PCI-E Sleeving done!

Took forever for my depinning tool to come in but just glad its here.

The pinout of the PSU to the GPU is reversed so I had a hard time deciding on the pattern to use. I am slightly satisfied with the way it looks. I am hoping the finished product will look even better since it will be clean.

Update: 8/29/2012: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So there has been some small progress for the project. I found a way to get the best look out of a motherboard cover, its just a matter of designing the cover and choosing the material. I plan on using 3Form and a CNC machine.

I also seem to be making small progress with getting more sponsors. Please if you know anyone, I need all the help I can get!
Update: 9/11/2012: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Today is a small update, still discussing sponsors and I have updated the parts list.

So I don't wan't to say this is entirely my idea as it's been done before, I just never really knew about it... Anyways, I will be creating a full motherboard cover out of White Acetal POM material. Any sponsors who contribute and want their name to be displayed will have the front side engraved with black ink in the groves so it will really stick out of the case. I wish I had a way to show this idea but I cannot start the cutting until I have all the parts to make measurements and precise plans for the CNC machine. I will also be grabbing the white acetal tops for the water blocks. Sadly EK only makes one for the 680 so that means I gotta spend more money on the GPU :/

I am still waiting on my financial aid since I had to buy all my books myself, once that comes in I will be purchasing what I can but I still need all the sponsors I can get smile.gif
Update: 9/26/2012 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Today I finally got a hold of my USPS package which contained two awesome products from Coollaboratory, an innovative company from Germany who is setting new records with their fully metal thermal compound.

Big Update!

Purchased almost all of my hardware today, really happy with the results!
Will be editing photos and uploading tonight!
























Plugged everything in to see if anything was defective or problematic but everything is functioning like a champ!
Update: 11/12/12 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I am changing the projects name to Black Ice.
Started to strip the case to see what could really fit in the case.



Going to be throwing a Triple 120mm Rad in the front. No big deal.
Update: 11/13/2012 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So last night I started to tear apart the case to see what modding could be done that I did not know was possible without getting my hands on the case.






So the plan here is to use modding mesh to match the top cover down the middle and I will fit a soft touch fan controller so I can control all of my fans when necessary. I considered just putting them all on PMW but I feel that more cables to the motherboard will just be problematic for me. Any thoughts?
Update: 11/26/2012 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Rather small update, I just didn't want to leave you subs in the dark as to the progress on this project. I would have already purchased the rest of my liquid cooling parts and accessories but I am going to be playing at IPL 5 for the SM wildcard bracket so it set me back a little bit for the moment. For more information on IPL 5 for those of you not informed: http://www.ign.com/ipl/all/ipl-5
I will resume the project on the 15th or so, so keep your eyes peeled because this one is going to be a dosey.

On other great news, I did happen to catch an OCZ Vertex 4 256gb SSD on Black Friday for cheap so that should be arriving shortly.
Update: 12/18/2012 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I just got a small package in from ModDIY, just some cable materials.


I also have another amazing package on the way from a new sponsor! (WEWT WEWT ^.^) I don't want to spoil any of the fun so i am going to keep it a secret until someone guesses it or it comes in tongue.gif

All of my other purchases should be in around January since the holiday mail delays everything :/
Update time! Long and Overdue!!!!!
Update: 1/8/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Happy New Year my new years resolution is to finally get this project back on track for completion due to some set backs..... But do not worry! I come with great news! I got a package in the mail I have been waiting for since I last posted and it has brought me massive amounts of joy and I hope it makes you guys and gals a little bit too tongue.gif

TO THE PICTURES!


OMG A WILD BOX APEARS! What could it be???

DUN DUN DUN Awesome sponsor from Black Noise! 9 x 120mm 800-2000RPM E Loop Fans. I knew I had to have these the moment I saw them.

Update: 1/14/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just got my package in from EKWB. Sadly I was not able to work out a sponsorship with them but I think I might just throw their logo on there just because of how much I love their products!






package from FrozenCPU should be here in a day or so and the Coldzero package will arrive who knows when lol...
Update: 1/16/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Today was a day of good and bad. I got my package from FrozenCPU but it brought me bad news. I somehow forgot to put order my Alphacool 80mm rad.... I wont be able to make the purchase until friday but its not a big deal because I still need to order some stuff off of modDIY. Here are the pics of what came and what I did since I couldnt contain myself from playing with my new toys :3











Heres what I got done tonight with my motherboard heatsinks.








Just Delidded my i5 3570K. Pics below:


Just seperated.

Yay time to clean gunk!



All shiny, I would buff it out but I see no real benefit in performance or asethetics since its just going to be covered up up by the IHS.
Update: 1/17/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Just click images to view high res, tried to save some people some loading time!
Just a little prep work I did tonight. Enjoy!


Not sure if I like the way this looks since the cut outs are for 140mm fans... I think it will look fine with acrylic panels over them though!






















That was rather painless, thanks OCZ for making your stickers not peel like a PITA!


Oh whats this!


OH NO WHAT HAVE I DONE ;P


Gotta hand it to OCZ, really well done!





Update: 1/20/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I got a little mod work done on the case. So I needed to mod the top since I have decided to not use a fan controller and use a third outake fan on the top. Thus I needed to cut some plastic. I will do all the metal cutting next weekend hopefully.


Before


After

I also forgot to post pics of my ColdZero package.


This contains one LED Strip, 30 meters of 2mm sleeving, 30 meters of white 18g wire, and some pins biggrin.gif
Update: 1/25/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




A little bit of damage, nothing major or throwing a it over.




I think I am going to keep it black biggrin.gif

Just got my Ice Dragon Coolant from Andrew. Thanks again for the sponsorship!
Got an awesome cozi lol
Update: 2/11/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

So I had to redo the brackets since they were forcing the case apart....

TO make things easier...

Spoted a leak after 5 mins of getting the bubbles out... Now I get to refill the loop, yay lol

Success, she lives and she breathes fire! Its actually weird, when I was just switching the system on and off the PMW fans were on their lowest settings If I am correct and once I booted into bios they all ramped up to 100% and it has to be the coolest sound in I've ever heard, its like a whisper straight to a jet like whir. Just these six move a ton of air on lowest RPM and I still have to throw in 4 outlet fans XD
Update: 2/13/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Finally got windows 7 installed. Idle temps are 14 22 17 29. I think the settings aren't running as low as they should on idle. The bus seems to be tweaked as its reporting 100.52 in CPU Z. GPU temp is idle 22c.

Im still in the process of updating all the BIOS and drivers, once its all up to date I will start benching and overclocking. Ill probably have some good results by the end of the day. Wish me luck!


Update: 2/15/2013 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I have finally got a decent OC at 4.8ghz. Idle temps are 35-33-23-30. Max temps are all ~55-64.

CPU-Z validation of max OC: http://valid.canardpc.com/2695013




I next plan on starting to do my sleeving and getting the rest of the cables I need (the Sata Cables i ordered are too short)

keep yourselves posted!
Update: 7/01/14 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
OKAY OKAY,

I know I haven't been on this build in ever! I have been just overwhelmed with things in life and just not having the resources/funds to finish the build. I feel guilty and dishonorable to my sponsors. Yet there is hope, I have just finished rebuilding the system and have pictures of whats been done. I was considering on buying an entire new system but with the next gen haswell, DDR4, GTX 8XX series, and a whole lot of new watercooling tech coming out, I thought it would be best to wait since this machine still holds up to my needs.

So I ordered new tubing, coolant, and a PSU. I did a complete tear down of the system. I didn't take a whole ton of pictures but I am sure they will be somewhat entertaining.

The new PSU: NZXT 850W Hale90 v2

This is the original PSU I wanted to get for the build but it wasn't available or local pickup. Great thing is too, this is a 1-1 pinout from what I have read with no caps. Only a power sense cable which people have stated as being easy to get around. Now for the pictures. I will apologize before hand, I got a new phone recently and for some reason it has a hard time taking pictures of such negative contrast. It can't decide to focus on what and it makes some objects blurry. I will be working on that too smile.gif

I did have a little help with the un-boxing plus some improvised modeling.







I am extremely happy with this PSU and it's cables.








Ran some distilled water through the system with Sysprep from Primochill. Wasn't the most fun but I got it done.










Everything is back in and working like a champ. I found a shop that will assist in making the bracket for my radiator so it will fit more flush and also said he would cut my acrylic. It 's one of my clients for my work so it's going to be fun working with them. I plan to purchase the acrylic next paycheck and have it cut the following week or so. I will also be starting to create custom cabling this weekend, I just hope I have enough sleeving left over. I have the option to order different sleeving than what I have. What do you guys think? Stick with the slim sleeving or go to the normal 8mm? White of course smile.gif

Sidenote: I have to also purchase new fittings. I really like the look of the monsoon fittings but by functions demands, they are terrible. The key they give you for tightening fittings bends and ends up damaging the paint on the fitting. Also I have lost three fittings due to them locking up and the tool being un-able to break them free without getting a wrench out and destroying the paint. Definitely sad about that.
Update: 7/7/2014 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Even though I do not have an ATX de-pinning tool, that does not mean I cannot start sleeving!



So I decided to start on the GPU cables.














I will be starting the CPU 8 pin tonight since I don't have a reference at work. I am running low on sleeving and I hope I am able to re-use the 24 pin I did for the OCZ :S
Update: 7/14/2014 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

PCI-E Sleeving done!

Took forever for my depinning tool to come in but just glad its here.

The pinout of the PSU to the GPU is reversed so I had a hard time deciding on the pattern to use. I am slightly satisfied with the way it looks. I am hoping the finished product will look even better since it will be clean.
