[Project] Gr33n P!ec3 {Reworked}

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Sup OCN, been browsing this forum awhile now & I've come across some truly amazing builds, alot of talented guys/gals on here. I've been inspired by some of these PC masterpieces to build my own so I've decided to do my first buildlog in which I will be tranfering my current build into its new chassis **Phantom 820** along with my first custom cpu only loop.

My current specs are listed in my sig so I won't bother to repost them. For cooling I'm using the H100 for the cpu & my GTX 680 is cooled by "The Mod" using one of Dwood's amazing brackets & an Antec 620. For now I'm only cooling the cpu as I'm pretty satisfied with the "Mod's" performance thus far & it's also all my budget will allow atm. Will eventually get a GPU block in the near future. I'm also going to paint the Antec 620 rad white to match with my 360 rad which is also going to be painted.

So my current setup is in the 1st gen NZXT Phantom which is a great chassis & I will be putting another build in it in the future as well as practice some modding on it. I pretty much kept it stock as I like the look, but I have recently put in a window & it has definitely enhanced the look of it overall. I don't possess a vast modding experience but I figure I'm in the right place to learn.

Paint was scoffed a lil by the dremel but will be painted back soon




The first step of my plan is to transfer all components to their new enclosure the Phantom 820. I love this case so far, it's such a huge upgrade over its predecessor. This will be a work in progress as I haven't developed a final overall look so I hope to have this rig up to par during the course of next year. Most of my WC components have already been delivered:

CPU Block: Koolance 380i

Rad: Alphacool NeXxXos xt45 360 (Will be painted white)

Pump: Swiftech MCP655 (Alphacool H5 Pump top DELIVERED)

Tubing: Primochill LRT Pro UV Green 1/2" / 3/4"

Fans: Gelid Wing 12 UV green x3, AP15 x3 (Thinking of painting the blades flat white)

Reservoir: Alphacool Repack-Cooling Slot-In Delrin - White Special Edition

Misc: Monsoon compression fittings (white) x6, Enzotech compression fittings x2, Monsoon antimicrobial G1/4 plug, 12" UV Cathode.

Alot of ideas are floating around atm, it's great to have all the inspiration & additional ideas from this great community. Credit will be given where it's due of course thumb.gif

So let's kick off my new build **Gr33n P!ec3**




UPDATE!!!

Build as of 4/8/13
For now this build is pretty much finished, it was an enjoyable little project and going to be preparing for the next one.

FINAL PICS

So I've begun painting my rads as well as my old phantom panel using rusto-leum gloss white enamel. Prepped each piece by doing some light sanding with wet/dry 600>800 grit paper. Did two coats so far, will let them dry then apply a sanding with 1500 before the final coats. So far they're looking ok for a paint noob like myself redface.gif

^^ Thanks bud, I'll try my best. Nice job on your build btw, the sleeving looks really good thumb.gif

Have a slight delay tho, in the process of remounting " The Mod" to my 680 I may have applied too much tim or it couldve been the loose connection on the gpu bracket I zip tied back to the PCB but as a result something seems to have gone wrong & my gpu is now dead in the water. The fan still spins up but no video. Have already contacted EVGA & put the RMA in a gear. Really disappointed but such is life. Just as BF3 aftermath comes out too, what luck mad.gif

So I'm probably gonna wait till I back my card because I'm now thinking about adding it to the loop one time. Stay tuned

Finally got back my GTX 680 today & all my WC parts, twas a great day. Already flushed the rads, alot of gunk in the Alphacool as opposed to Swiftech's which was pretty clean. Will be test fitting tomorrow & painting the swiftech rad.

Began to do a dry fit last night to gauge the loop order & tubing runs. Basically it's res>pump>360>cpu>gpu>240>res. Had a major problem last night with disassembling my 680, one of the screw heads on the back of card was stripped pretty bad, *** evga mad.gif!!

Had to do some fine surgery which involved some drilling eek.gif to the screw head. Needless to say I was pretty nervous running the drill on my brand new RMAd card. But after some perseverance I managed to get it of without damaging my card.

Also one of my EK 45° angle adapters seems to be faulty as it was leaking. Maybe a bad O-ring I'm not sure.

Speaking of the culprit


All stripped & ready


Mess of cables


Late night tinkering




First run went well with exception of faulty 45° adapter

Decided to mount the pump on the extra fan bracket, very simple install. Will have to get some vinyl to cover the pump labels.

Seems very sturdy



Changed my mind about the 360 orientation so it was flipped in the other direction but the top plate on the 5.25" drive bay didn't allow for tubing to pass through so it was time to make a small cut.

System has been bled & leak tested with everything A-OK!!. Still have a couple more things to do like purchasing some Koolance QDC, cable management, custom cables & working on a logo to be cut in somewhere.

Here's a couple shots of what it looks like so far



Booted, locked & loaded biggrin.gif


Drain valve. Saw this on a switch 810 build & had to copy tongue.gif


Not seen is the huge mess of cables I need to manage


So far idle temps are excellent, will update with more tests.

CPU idle 24°
GPU idle 31°
