[Build Log] Define R4 - "VesaRayne"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

I've been kind of a lurker around OCN for a long time and don't post to much but I will admit alot of the things I've learned have come from here or the search started here at the very least and everyone has always been very helpful to me. I've done alot of builds for my friends and family members over the years but I have never actually posted one for everyone to see, admittedly I've never done a watercooled build before so this one will be a first for me, Im pretty stoked about it so I figured I'd go ahead and post the build log, most of the core components are things I currently have in my RV02 and Im a sucker for white cases so I decided to do a Define R4 in white this time around and retire the white RV02. As for the water cooling components I do have all the major parts but am waiting on a few small parts for a couple of the mods I'm doing to the case to make it unique. I like both AMD and Intel and have had quite of a few of both systems over the years, this particular build may have a small change near the end in the CPU department, I just can't decide if I want to keep my 960T or get a 8350 so we'll see what happens near the end.

Current System Being Transferred

AMD 960T@4ghz
Gskill Ripjaws 16gb/1866
Asus Crosshair V
Sapphire 7950
Samsung 830 128GB
Samsung Spinpoint 1TB
Asus Xonar ST
XFX XXX 650 (being replaced by a seasonic 750)

Watercooling Components

XSPC Raystorm CPU Block
XSPC EX240
XSPC EX240 Crossflow
DD CPX-Pro Pump
Swiftech Komodo 7950 Block
Phobya Matte Black Comp Fittings
Tygon Norprene 3/8-5/8 Tubing
Aqua Computer White Delrin Res

Fans/Misc

AP181
7x Enermax TB Silence 120mm with the Red LEDs (I know they aren't the best but I've used these fans before and they are completely silent from my experience, the airflow and pressure should be fine for this purpose)
I have quite a few 3mm and 5mm Red LEDs that will be going in various places

There will be a few external mods to the case I will post near the end as I haven't completely settled on the look.
There will be some mods to the side and top of the case at the very least and maybe a mod to the underside that Im not sure on yet, the overall idea with this was to keep it quiet and not go overboard with the external look of the case as the R4 is a nice minimalist looking case and I want to avoid ruining that. I'll try to get some pics posted tonight or tomorrow of all the gear and some before shots of the RV02 before I strip it.

I'm always open to suggestions if anyone has any, I may not change anything at this point but I always like opinions even if its criticism.
