[Build Log] 'My First Intel' Watercooling Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Every build I've done in the past has been AMD, dating back to a Socket A Athlon XP 2700+ somewhere in the 2004-5 era when I first became interested in PC building. The idea to do this Intel build popped into my head around Thanksgiving time when I saw all the crazy deals Microcenter aswell as other stores had on computer parts for Black Friday. To say the least, I pulled trigger.

Main Components

Processor:
  • Intel i5-3570K
Motherboard:
  • ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus V Extreme
Graphics Cards:
  • 2x Zotac GTX465 1GB (Stole from my previous build until I can scrounge up some $$$ for updated cards)
RAM:
  • 16GB Kingston Hyper X (1600Mhz, 9-9-9-24, 1.65V)
Storage:
  • OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD
  • 500GB Western Digital Caviar Black HDD
  • 3TB Seagate HDD
Case:
  • Corsair Obsidian Series 800D
PSU:
  • Antec High Current Gamer 750w

Cooling

Radiators:
  • Hardware Labs Black Ice Extreme 360 X-Flow Radiator (Top)
  • Hardware Labs Black Ice Stealth 120 Radiator (Bottom)
CPU:
  • XSPC RayStorm
GPU's:
  • 2x Danger Den Full Coverage Copper + Acetal (i think)
Reservoir:
  • XSPC X20 750 Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir w/ Built in 750LPH Pump.
Tubing:
  • Primochill 1/2" ID 3/4" OD UV BLUE
