[Build Log] Obsidian Sentinel

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I am in my last semester in college finishing up my bachelors degree in Information Technology with dual concentrations in Information Assurance and Network Administration. One day it hit me, "How can I call myself an IT guy without a custom rig?" I found a lot of wisdom and inspiration here at overclock, so I joined. I am a complete noob here at overclock and when it comes to builds. I liked the idea of the build log, so here is mine, the Obsidian Sentinel.

CPU - 3930k
GPU - GTX 680 [Asus DC2-4GD5]
MoBo - Rampage IV Extreme
PSU - Corsair AX860i
Case - Corsair 800D
Cooling - EK-Kit H30 360 HFX
RAM - 12GB [3x4GB] Kingston HyperX T1 - 1600
Storage - Samsung 840 Pro SSD 128GB; 2x 2TB Seagate Barracudas 7200 sata6
Optical - Asus DVD

I'm looking at replacing the ram as it was leftovers. So if anyone wants to recommend a nice looking black or red 32GB quad channel kit, I'm all ears. Looking at replacing the case fans with some corsair AF140s and the rad fans with some corsair SP120s. Looking for a good fan controller [anyone use corsair link cooling lighting kit?]. And some lighting, especially want to light up the res.

Further down the road I'm set on a GPU waterblock by EK. Then maybe adding a 240 or 120 res in the bottom of the case to help with the GPU.

Sorry pics aren't the greatest. Let me know what you guys think!!thumb.gifthumb.gif
I'll keep the latest pics here for easy finding.

Loop 1

This is the way I wanted to run it... didn't work out. I wanted to feed the res from the top but had a hard time filling it.

Loop 2

This is the way it ended up. Had a fitting on the rad that was loose. Dribbled coolant on the 680. Took apart the GPU, dapped, can dryed, alcohol swabbed, over 24hrs, then pasted back together. No harm done. bubbles were gone in about 18 hrs.

And for the Ram i would go for the Corsair Dominator

I knew those would be brought up quickly. They are on the short list!

Looking great mate biggrin.gif Always love an 800D build.

Any feedback on the Samsung 840 drives and Corsair 860i? Looking at getting both of these parts in the near future.
