[Build-Log] Antares - Re-Done [UPDATED + PICS]

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just wanted to share a small build log with you guys. This is my second time doing water cooling after not being very happy with the very first one!

My Rampage IV Extreme decided to die on me the other week which im getting a new one delivered on Tuesday after a RMA, which gave me a good reason to re do things.

I am using a NZXT Switch 810 Case (White) and in my first WC loop i actually had a lot of trouble putting a RX360 rad in there to fit with the motherboard, but i got it in there in the end!

I am now using an AX360 40mm rad (some of you might flame me for it about it being rubbish?) But i am hoping that 6x Corsair SP120mm 2350rpm fans would be enough to give me on par temps with the RX360 if not better.

I've ditched the PrimoChill PRO tubing after it giving me a thick like film within the tube just after a short time! So on the PrimoChill ADVANCED LRT Tubing now.

I've also decided to get another XSPC Raystorm Waterblock, and some Bitspower Rotary fittings for a cleaner shorter loop.

Here are some pics, more to follow in the coming days.

[THE OLD LOOP]


[NEW BITS TO GO IN]




Hardware is as follows
CPU: 3960x OC at 5.0Ghz
RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws @ 2400mhz
GPU: GTX 680 SC Signature (will add the GPU's to my loop when my 3x 680 Classifieds arrive)


Hoping to get some fully sleeved cables for my Seasonic XP-1000 Platnium from Moddiy... Though not 100% sure on the quality of their sleeving.. Would much rather pay someone to do it for me but what can ya do thumb.gif

I am also currently thinking how i can make tubing "neater" from RAD>RES looks like I don't have much of an option but to do a long leangth from the back to the front.

Oh also got a XSPX D5 Res/Pump combo.

Any insights are welcomed (be nice this is only my second time doing a WC Loop) tongue.gif

or anybody who can sleeve cables in australia hit me up wink.gif

I can vouch for them, the quality is actually top notch. Of course you get customized service if you chose to pay someone to do it.
I only have good experience with moddiy, and i have yet to see a customer angry smile.gif

Good luck with the build smile.gif

Thanks for vouching for them mate smile.gif I'm curious if they will use the exact cables that come with your psu? Cause I know the psu I have has a weird 24pin +8 that goes into the psu.

Posting more pics tomorrow after my second new rampage iv extreme arrives tomorrow lol.

Here is a quick update on my rig... My 2nd new rampage iv arrived today and the company decided to throw in a 140mm Corsair AF fan in for free for being a loyal customer.. Sweeeet

Here are some updated pics, Will hopefully be finished tomorrow after cable management and a leak test. The route for my WC seems to look better already then my first one i did which is located in my first post in this thread.


Package Arrived Safe & Sound smile.gif


The Goodies Inside


My Free Gift From My PC Store.. Thank YOU PCCG!


Motherboard Installed


Fans Installed On An XSPC AX360 Radiator!! Will run Push/Pull


Rad Installed, Added that bit of hosing first cause the angle was awkward! Bitspower fittings and rotary fittings!


Another View!


Tomorrow I will be adding the rest of the tubing and organize some cable management! Most tedius part for me! Absolutely hate it! Hopefully will get sleeved cables for my PSU in a few months!

Stay tuned for some more pictures tomorrow!
