Mayhem's X1... it won't leak, we will make sure you leak test if first before hand as this is your first time.

Also ignore my recommendation... you need XSPC Raystorm D5 RX240 or EX240. A 360 won't fit in the top of your case, the 240 will.

I would add 2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15s to that too.

Post your shopping list up here before you pull the trigger so we can definitely check you have the right bits.

Whereabouts are you based?

Cheers,

DB

I'm so excited I didn't even see that it was a 360 rad tongue.gif.

What is the difference between the RX and the EX.

I'm based out of the New England area.

thanks

RX240 is 60mm thick, EX240 is 35mm thick... fans are 25mm thick.

Difference in performance with GT AP-15s is less than 10%, so I'd say get the EX240 as the RX240 doesn't look like it's an easy fit, so not worth it.

You can always add an extra rad in the front at a later date, but there's no need at the moment.

Cheers,

DB

Edited to say: This looks good. That's a D5 pump and an XSPC full cover for a 670.

I think 240mm rad means you lose the CD drive.... no biggie for me!

Thanks for the reply, what speed would you recommend getting those ap-15's at. I did plan on using a blue ray drive but I can always get an external one.

Here's what I'm thinking so far for the build
(I'm typing from a tablet right now so links would be a pain to do)

Asrock motherboard

3570k

Ex240

Power suppy possibly a seasonic 860 platinum (not as long but a little wider which means more room for wires , just have to measure to make sure it fits)

Corsiar dominator platinum

And some 830 or 840 ssd

And as far as a graphic card goes I'm thinking and evga 670ftw or an evga 680 hydro copper

AP-15s are 1850rpm, IMO that's the best compromise between cooling and noise... they are quiet but not silent. You hear air moving, not a buzz from the fans.

AP-14s are 1450rpm, they are near-silent.

Asrock Z77E-ITX, most would recommend, I have one and am very impressed

3570K, same as me, yes.

EX240 D5 kit, yep.... + 2x 7/16" Compression fittings, 2x 90degree 7/16" Compression fittings (have two spare then) and 1x GPU Full Cover cooler

I prefer Samsung 30nm to Corsair but you can't go wrong with that either.

830/840, 830 if it's considerably cheaper.

You don't need 860W in an ITX!!! I'd recommend the Seasonic 660W Platinum instead if it's cheaper.

670/680 are great, but value for money wise, I'd recommend the 7950 over them.

Think that's it?

Cheers,

DB

I think that is it:thumb:

my whole reason for thinking that the 860w would be better is that the seasonic 750w I own is a very tight fit with the wiring however the platinum is shorter, I just have to figure out if it would be worth it(I don't want the 660 because that would be downgrading.)

Should I get xspc branded fittings as well? (I'm assuming yes)

thanks

Also is this the kind of coolant you were talking about

Yep that's the one.

XSPC fittings will match which is nice... make sure the kit is 7/16" ID Tubing too. You want everything to be that size.

I have a 1kw Power Supply in my big build and have no SLI or Xfire, so if it's not much more than why not? Just that you will never use that to SLI or Xfire in an ITX build.

Once you've plumbed it all up... use the power supply paper clip trick to fill the system and test for leaks!

Ah crap... just realised you can't get the kit, cos you have nowhere to put the bay res... sorry for being a dizz.

I will make you a basket now... wait for that please.

Cheers,

DB

Edited to say... here you go... you need to add a GPU water block and you are good to go



You only need 3 feet of tubing max... sorry force of habit.

Thanks, I noticed the cpu block says 1/2 barb, wouldn't I need 7/16?

Also do I still need 90 degree connectors?

You can slip 7/16" tubing over 1/2" barbs by soaking them for 30 secs in some warm water.

However, I have put 10 7/16" Compression fittings in the basket to be used as follows:

2x for CPU
2x for GPU
2x for Radiator
2x for Pump/Res Combo
2x spare

Also the 1/2 barbs will be unused and spare (it's either 3/8" or 1/2" with that block). Best to stick to 100% compression fittings so the build looks good. This is a show-off build too thumb.gif

You could order some 90 degree ones instead of the 2x spare if you can find them on that website.

Last thing you need... some de-ionised water, to dilute the coolant down with!

Feel free to PM at anytime when you are building this! Will help if I can.

When you order your Graphics card, make sure it's reference design (you can start a new post to ask if one you find is) as a full-cover water block will only fit a reference design card. I agree not to get a 660, doesn't seem worthwhile esp with $100 for the water cooling block. I think a 670 would clock very well though.

This says it all really, that's before OC'ing the 670



I want to make one now! tongue.gif

Cheers,

DB

The Noctua NH-D14 might be a really tight fit in that mobo.
