[Build Log] 600T-Acrylic Bending- Formerly Vanilla Royale.

post #1 of 276
Thread Starter 




Hey OCN,

I have always wanted to build a pc and Skyrim has finally convinced me to do so. I have checked out so many Build logs I thought I would do my own.
This will be my first attempt at water cooling and pc building. Have always been around pc's and FINALLY realized the magic in actually building one. ( what the hell took so long?)

-Case: 600t
-Mobo: Asus sabertooth z77
-CPU: i5 3570k
-GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW+ 4gb (will get another one if I am successful)
-RAM: 16 gb (4x4) G skill. Sniper 1866
-PSU: OCZ zx 1000w (bought without knowing about the wonders of mdpc, will attempt to sleeve)
-Storage: 2x Samsung 840 120 gb/ 1 TB WD caviar black
-Asus DVD RW
-Giant box from PPC
- Multiple orders from MDPC. Nils is a great guy. Its addicting ordering from him.
-A bunch of hex head screws because I despise phillips

Cooling ( EK Kit )

-EK-KIT H3O 360 HFX ( first go pc building so I thought I would be safe with a kit but now wondering about the pump it came with)

- EK-Supremacy
- EK-Backplate CPU Universal
- EK-CoolStream RAD XTX 360
- EK-FAN Silent 120-1600 RPM (3 pcs)
- EK-DCP 4.0 Pump
- EK-Multioption RES X3 150
- EK-DCP PUMP mounting plate KIT
- TUBE Masterkleer 12,7/9,5 CLEAR (2 meters)
- EK-PSC Fitting 10mm - G1/4 Nickel (8 pcs)
- EK-Ekoolant UV Blue (concentrate 100ml)
- TIM Gelid GC-Xtreme (EKWB 2g)

Other cooling

-EK-FC680 GTX+ . GPU waterblock
-Swiftech MCR220 240 MM Radiator
-EK adapter fittings
-Koolance quick disconnects

If all the planning I have done in my head is correct then I will be correct. This will also be my first attempt a computer modding. (obviously)
I already have all these parts so this is what I am going to build. That being said input on future build and what would work better would be appreciated.

Hopefully I can find some paint that matches MDPC’s vanilla sand sleeve. If anyone could recommend anything, that would be great.

Here goes.

A little dissapointed with the paint matching but I took the chance buying a case of it and I will make it work. Vanilla Sands sleeve is truly a color of its own. Good news it that I am really looking forward to using this Montana paint. Top ranks in this article so I will find out.

With some time off and the final parts from my wonderful girlfriend I can start with the build. What have I gotten myself into?




Originally I was going to have the 360 rad at the front and the 240 up top but there would have been too much airflow restriction at the front. So I will have to cut the top panel and fit the 360 sticking out and keep the cut out, clean it up and use it as fan grills.





So the 240 willl be upfront and is too tall so will need to cut some more out. I get to replace the rivets with the mdpc ones!

Firewire will not be used by me *snip* Molex power as well as the fan extensions.



Much better.



The case is stripped and ready to get hacked up a little.




Not perfect but will do the trick.
