EVOWolfe the start of something great

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter

This is my first ever build log. I have been a avid forum browser here but never signed up. I have always come and looked at all the great builds that have been done here and after building so many computers, I have decided I would give case modding and building on a different level a try. I just went out and bought this computer as a starting point and have many plans. I will be switiching out some of the hardware for upgraded versions. I plan on doing a full water cooling setup from scratch. Im also gonna do a case tear down and do a digital camo paint job. I havent seen very many cases that have digital camo and thought it would be unique. I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions on what I should change and do differently.

The specs are as follows

Intel I5 3570 3.4GHZ
AsRock Z77 Pro3 Board
Power Colour 7750 1GB x 2
Azza 700W PSU
1TB Caviar Black HDD
128 ADATA SSD
12 GB ADATA DDR3
and some kind of 3rd party water cooling unit for the cpu
NZXT Phantom Case

Looks great. I hope you're not sleeping in the same room as your PC though.

I had the same liquid cooler as you. It is an Asetek 550LC Liquid CPU Cooling System. I had this cooler on my Phenom II 965 but took it of because my cpu idled at 51 and at load was at 62. I switched to an h60 and love it. Went from idle 51 to 40 and load 62 to 54. If I were you I would sell that thing right away and get another cooler.

Thanks for the advice, I was thinking of going to a whole water cooling loop. I cant seem to find any water blocks for my 7750 cards anywhere. So I may just get two nvidia gtx 680's and change the motherboard to a Asus Maximus Extreme and up the ram to 16gb of corsair dominator. Im also trying to figure out if i should keep this case or move to a Corsair carbide 500r
