[ Build Log ] - Project IN WIN GRone




After recently working on several high end pc's for friends and rambling through countless new build logs on here... I was inspired to start my own 2013 Ivy Bridge build. With a small budget in mind I am hoping to be able to recycle some parts from past builds (circa 2009)- if it's at all possible.

As far as what CPU , MOBO & GPU(S) I will be using , well I'm not really sure yet. I'm getting my watercooling parts cleaned , tested and painted first before I decide on the money I will spend on the real hardware stuff.
This should be interesting and unpredictable.. -so let the chaos begin !



First off I've already leak tested & painted some parts.

MCR220 Rad


Micro Res brackets

MCP655-B pump (Thanks to Witchdoctor for reminding me to check the O-ring )




Now I'm trying to figure out where the parts are going to go and the order of the loop. Havent really decided on if I'm going to run dual or a single loop. I have the parts though.. that decision I will be making as soon as I finish with some minor mods to my case.


A little cutting to be done on the IN WIN GRone for the 220 rad placemet.






Finished cutting and trimmed it :






Whats that trim I'm using to cover my shotty dremel work ? It's door edge trim for your automobile.... :} Yeah , I'm cheap !

As of now 2/1/13 I am waiting on some small parts to come in so I can finally decide on what CPU & GPU I'm going with.

Here's what's coming in this week :






I will be cutting a spot for the case temp gauge above the external SATA port...



There's not many modded GRone cases out there yet so why not sub for this thread ? tongue.gif - I know your curious.....biggrin.gif

Stay tuned ! More low budget buiding coming soon ...

Looks like a cool case - I'm getting more and more interested in In Win cases all the time.

Hey what's up fellow GRone owners ! biggrin.gif


2/3/13 - I think I've found a good pump location which is directly above the 220 rad. But I had to move one of the 140mm intake fans. I also took some measurements to be sure the pump's placement will clear my 7970 cards. (finger's crossed)




Finally have my Recon fan controller mounted. Looks spiffy !



After some number crunching .. I've got my complete build list. W00t!
This rig will consist of :
3770k @ 4.5ghz (water)
GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3
16 gb corsair vengeance
Corsair 120gb ssd (boot) WD VelociRaptor 500gb 10,000 rpm (storage)
Dual 7970's (1125/1575) (water)
Corsair 1050 psu

Resalvaged circa 2009 watercooling parts list:
Swiftech MCR-320 rad (top mounted)
Swiftech MCR220 (bottom mounted)
MCP655-B pump (mounted over 220 rad)
Swiftech MCRES Revision 2
I will be replacing all of the fittings with 3/4" OD 1/2" ID compression fittings. What brand fittings I'm not sure of yet. Tubing: Swiftech Tubing 3/4 in. (OD) x 1/2 in. (ID)
For the coolant I've choosen Mayhem - Supernova White....
Waterblocks:
XSPC RayStorm CPU Water Block
Redesigned XSPC Razor HD 7970 Waterblock's

Almost forgot to mention the fans I've ordered for my rads. 5) Corsair SP120
fans.


Moved some fans around a bit ...
140 mm fan under the top shroud of the case. Looks like it will work with no clearance issues mounted in the middle. Better than nothing I guess.



I also mounted a 140mm to the back panel (behind the motherboard tray).


-Off to paint my Blue Ray/DVD RW bezel... Stay tuned !
