[Build Log] Amorphous - Silverstone FT02 Watercooling Build

post #1 of 97
Thread Starter 
Background Info:
Currently in college, working part time as I go to school. Working full time during winter/summer breaks (like right now). So I got a decent bit of money left over after paying for food/transportation, and I decided my computer was due for an overhaul a few months ago.

Previous computer was built back in Summer 2007, the only thing that changed since then was an HDD and GPU that had to replaced because they died. I was pretty happy with it, C2D 1.8Ghz and GTS 8800 (dead and replaced with GTX 560). But that hardware doesnt really hold up well in 2012 (well 2013 now...)

Got back on different forums, did some research. Decided I wanted a new case... then decided I want watercooling... and so once again hobby + community = dead wallet lol.

Experience with WC:
Only had a custom loop once in the past. It was a very basic loop. 120mm rad -> aquarium pump -> DangerDen GPU block -> res.
Horrific picture of old computer with that loop: Warning: Horrific picture of old computer with that loop (Click to show)

That PC was built when I was 13, internals transplanted from an eMachines desktop, and later upgraded to Athlon 64 + Radeon 9800 Pro
The case was by Raidmax, hence the name of my setup all the way until now...

NAME MY BUILD PLEASE? I have no idea what to name it. The name Raidmax has just been passed down ever since that first desktop.

The Plan:
  • Magicool Triple 180mm Radiator
  • EK Supremacy (Acrylic + Nickel) CPU Block
  • XSPC D5 Dual Bay Reservoir
  • Swiftech D5 (MCP655)
  • Monsoon 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD Fittings (Flat White)
  • Koolance VL3N Quick Disconnects
  • Mayhems Mint Green Pastel Coolant
  • Duralene tubing

Color Scheme
Originally this whole case was going to be red/white/black. But I felt like there are just too many Red/Black themed setups out there. And also after looking through the Mayhem's coolant thread, I really liked how the lighter colored pastel coolants looked. So I decided I'd start with the mint green pastels and later try to make it a seafoam green (blu-ish green).

Unfortunately by then I already had my motherboard and memory, both of which are red/black themed. So this case will end up having mostly black/white, and bits of green/red in there. Any opinions on this?

Part Orders and Cost List:


My Current Desktop:
I don't have pictures of this thing as it was being set up. The board + CPU were new, everything else was transplanted from my previous setup (which lived in a Gigabyte Aurora 3D case).




Probably going to remove the HDD hotswap and ODD as neither are used very often. The wiring looks messy (especially the LEDs) but its really all hidden behind the door when thats on so I'm not sure if I'll bother to fix it...

My parts so far


Pretty Monsoon fittings


Trying them on the tubing, to make sure I got the right size sent to me. I've heard of issues where people ordered one size and received another.
Snug fit, perfect:



EK Supremacy.
Got this used from a member on this forum actually, very clean, no issues. Havent tested it yet though.


I dont mind the CSQ design people seem to hate so much. I grew to like it. I actually like it mainly because its frosted acrylic vs just plain clear acrylic like the old design. Bought some white LEDs to go with this block, should look nice when combined with the coolant I plan on using.

XSPC D5 Dual Bay Reservoir and Swiftech MCP655
The reservoir:


I too have a gap in the top of my reservoir as many others have reported:


Pump installed on the reservoir:


I go to try it in the case and BAM... another known issue:

Gonna have to go at this with my dremel and shave a bit off the sides.

Koolance VL3N QDs

Fitted on the tubing, nice and snug:


I heard quite a few things about these QDs... Mainly that they're hard to disconnect.
After looking at these in person... I really question the intelligence of some of these "professional" reviewers.
They are AMAZINGLY easy to disconnect, IF you realize that you must push them together before twisting.
Look:


I'm assuming some people out there didnt realize how the mechanism actually works. You have to push the two sides together to get the pin out of that notch before it will slide and allow the two sides to twist and disconnect. The notch the pin sits in looks small enough that with enough force someone could probably just force the pin out or push the two fittings together without even realizing they did that. Thats probably what leads to the belief that theyre hard to take apart.

Maybe theres more resistance when theres fluid inside? But right now I can just use two fingers on each hand and disconnect them, barely any force needed.

Ordered the remaining parts for my build!
Total build cost: $413.60



January 13th, 2013:
Fixed XSPC Reservoir

Finally had some time at home, so I went at my reservoir with my Dremel. Only took a few light touches with the sanding attachment to shave off a bit from one corner. The nylon reservoir was surprisingly easy to sand btw.

Theres the reservoir, after being sanded a bit. I opted not to remove the aluminum front because the 90 degree edge guide on my dremel (also in the picture) would have rubbed/scratched the acrylic window.


Perfect flush fit! I also removed the other two bay devices, looks cleaner now.

Leak Test, part 1
Decided to test the parts that I have so far, for the first time. No problems at all biggrin.gif


Heres that gap people always talk about on the reservoir. One guy on these forums is having problems with it right now. Mine didn't leak luckily.


Oh and, found a perfect substitute for a tube cutter.




January 15th, 2013
Tubing and Fittings detail

Its the little things that count right? So I figured if I'm spending so much money, I might as well spend a few extra minutes to pay attention to this one detail.
Monsoon fittings allow the the tubing beneath the compression ring to peek through. It looks nice when used with colored tubing, but I'm using clear tubing + coolant.
So I decided to paint the ends of my tubing...

Prep'ed the tubing and got my can of paint



Result:

I think it looks pretty good. So I'll proceed to do it to any other ends of tubing that will be visible. Obviously not going to bother with the tips that connect to the reservoir, wont ever see those lol.

Stupid me though, in such a rush to try them on, the paint didnt dry completely and rubbed on the fitting a bit:


On another note, my Performance PCs order arrives on Thursday. DEMCIflex filter has yet to ship ):



January 17th, 2013
The Performance-PCs.com order finally arrived!



I like the fact that they had two other people actually check my package (I could see two different check marks next to each item on the list)


Mayhems:


The fan, with a quarter added in the pic for scale.


Very grateful they taped this to the radiator box... would've been hell to find (I HATE SHIPPING PEANUTS)


And heres the huge 540:
Some of the fins at one end were a bit damaged but I dont think its a big deal.. As long as it doesnt leak.


First time ordering from PPCS.com and probably would again. Only complaint is i really do hate shipping peanuts >.> the small chunks get everywhere...
Got home pretty late, so I'll leave everything alone until the morning. Pretty excited and nervous at the same time >.<<br />
lol yea that thing is a monster... Pain in the ass to put in it turns out. See below lol.




January 18th, 2013
Final pre-assembly leak testing


Nothing special, put all components together and tested it one last time outside of the case. No leaks biggrin.gif

January 19th, 2013:
Final Assembly


Before I started putting everything into the case, I decided to cut up the foam pad that came with my pump, to use as noise dampening on my radiator and reservoir.


I cant hear my pump unless I put my head right up next to my case, so I think its a success lol.
And oddly enough, it sounds nicer at full speed than anything else. Putting it at 3 or below seems to make it vibrate/resonate more in the case.

Next up, had to tear out the filter system and set up the fans:



Everything was going well until I tried to actually put the radiator in... its too freaking big to fit into the FT02 =.=
I ended up having to do this ):

So much for not modifying the case at all, but hey at least I did manage to keep my HDD rack, and the slim Phobya 180x25mm fan DOES fit under there with the radiator, although its pretty tight.
If I ever resell this case (unlikely due to shipping costs anyway) I can make that cut out look nicer/smoother lol.

FINISHED!






January 26th, 2013
DemciFlex Filter Arrives!


Specs:
510mm x 170mm w/ 15mm Gloss Black Magnetic Frame
$18.02 + $15.35 s/h


Apparently the company is located in South Africa, didn't know that, but didn't bother to check.

Anyway, I was quite unprepared to pick up the package from the post office... Forgot how long it'd be + it cant (shouldn't) be bent.
Walked home with this on my back lol:


The packaging was bent at one spot, so it had me worried. I wasnt sure how rigid the filter and its frame was.
But it turns out, no damage, and this filter is actually quite fabric-like.


Here it is laid out on the floor, with the old filters next to it:
[IMG]http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1256304/width/350/height/700/IMG] Its a fairly good fit. The only annoying part was that since its too fabric like, and the magnetic frame isnt stiff. So I couldn't just slide it in from one side and have it snap itself into place. I had to have my hands on both sides of the case or use a stick to prop it up. Just a slight issue with me since my case is against the side of my table, this adds an extra step for me to place the filter. Once its on, it stays on pretty well. I'm not sure how effective it is compared to the old filters. This one seems to be more dense and blocks a weee bit more air than the old ones. My temps still seem fine though.

MSI Radeon 7970 OC 3GB Arrives!


Here is the nice pretty box:


The beast of the card:


The 7970 next to my GTX 560 Non-Ti right after it was removed:


Quick before and after:



This MSI 7970 is supposed to be a reference PCB. I can see the AMD logo by the PCIe slot so I'm confident it is.
Fit in the FT02 with no problems. Theres still about 15mm of space between the end of the cooler and the AP181 fan from what I can see.

Will be drowning this card once I have some money. Cant wait cause holy **** this thing throws a lot of concentrated heat and makes a ton of noise.

Future Plans:
  • Add GPU to the loop
    Must drown this massive 7970 I just upgraded to. Will probably happen around April or May.
  • Cable management
    I like minimalism. Already removed the front HDD hotswap and DVD. That cut down on the clutter quite a bit.
    Will try and reroute the fan cabling so that bundle of yellow/red wires are not visible at all.
    Need to properly mount the LED lights.
    Considering buying individually sleeved PSU extensions for motherboard and GPU. Bit-Fenix Green and White set looks nice.
  • Make radiator shroud out of acrylic
    This will be last, since I'll have to measure everything before and after its installed in the case.
    Plan is to use special white acrylic that lights up evenly with LEDs. I'll custom cut it with my dremel and fit it on top of the fans with LEDs under it.
    I have more elaborate plans for this as well, but thats hard to explain with text.

Interested in doing a water cooled FT02 build myself in the future....so subbed to see how yours goes. smile.gif
post #6 of 97

FT02 is boss. Subbed smile.gif

 

I give all my builds names of Jazz standards, so it won't be of much use to you tongue.gif

 

Also the first thing that came up in my mind when looking at your old case was, what is this blasphemy. I had the LC-402 when I was 14 although that was in 2006.

 

MS-Tech LC-402 vs Raidmax Scorpio

MAKE SURE you get the outlet and inlet right on that res. Otherwise you will be draining it out when its half full because the pump will just be sucking air.

Thanks for the support guys!

@TheBlademaster01: haha yea, not really a fan of jazz. And what a nice coincidence lol, was that your first case as well? And hm, if you were 14 in 2006, i think we were born in the same year thumb.gif

@TimmyRGM: Actually a bit confused by this. Wouldn't the pump be fine no matter which side I use as input/output because the pump is built into the res and thus draws directly from the inside of the res and not from the inlet port? In other words, I dont really get a choice of which port is in and which is out. Swapping the two would just reverse the direction in my loop I think.

@TimmyRGM: Actually a bit confused by this. Wouldn't the pump be fine no matter which side I use as input/output because the pump is built into the res and thus draws directly from the inside of the res and not from the inlet port? In other words, I dont really get a choice of which port is in and which is out. Swapping the two would just reverse the direction in my loop I think.

'92 here

That was the first case of my own system although I did use more standard cases for the PCs at home. In my profile there's a rig called "Daahoud". That's the first PC I built although it was S939 + AMD Sempron 2800+ when I first built it and a Radeon 9600PRO AGP 256MB.

We also hve the exact same block and pump tongue.gif
