[BUILD LOG] Antares (90% Complete)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Here are my completed pictures and then some smile.gif

Who am i kidding? It isn't 100% finished im still awaiting to get my 3x GTX 680 Classifieds for a TRI-SLI configuration, which will also be added to the loop along with another rad.

Complete pics will be last. Remember to click on the image smile.gif

Any kind of advice or critique is welcome! Good and bad! It's my second proper attempt at WC and i think it looks great compared to my first attempt! I am awaiting to get fully sleeved cables for my seasonic PSU from MODDIY.. So should look the goods smile.gif

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 tedious part for me! Absolutely hate it! Hopefully will get sleeved cables for my PSU in a few months!



MY FIRST ORIGINAL ATTEMPT AT WC FOR THE FIRST TIME!

Sorry to tell you bro but the 680 Classified waterblocks are no longer. They either stopped production or havent made them in a while. Ive seen one go for 260 on ebay a month back. Havent done any research for 2 months plus but im pretty sure they arent in stock.

Where are you going to put the rad when you go to 3x GTX 680. I used a 360 in the top and a 120 on the back in my 2011 build but I only have two GTX 580's. I like the clean look that comes with keeping everything in the case.

Your kidding? That sucks then if that is the case! Wouldn't a normal 680 block fit on it considering it's the same kind of GPU of the other 680's? I emailed a PC store i buy my stuff from here in Australia and they apparently have them on back order? I'll see what the out come is. If it's a no show then i will wait till the 700 series is out and go from there smile.gif

I got a RX360 rad here which i originally had in my case (if you seen the pic from my first WC'ing attempt) but i had a lot of issues with it fitting properly with a rampage iv extreme in there.

I will remove my hard drive cages in the switch 810 and stick another rad in that part there. I agree i with you with it all being in the case instead, it should be like that IMO.

And with my SSD's i'll just use velcro to stick my SSD's in certain places and chuck out my 2x WD HDD's

Yea, noone sells them new so far. All the blocks are on backorder. The card is a 680 but they are not reference design. Im pretty sure the card is higher than a regular card. You might be able to mount a regular block with some modding.
