[Build Log] "Dark Passenger"

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 


Still working on it. I have more parts to order in the next few weeks.

Another 670
SSD
Monitor(s)
Angle/compression fittings (or stealth fittings?)

It's been a while since my last build. The major flaw I made last time was I dumped all of my money on it and reached the top of my budget before I even had time to think about it. So this time, I'm going to enjoy it. Slow the build process down, think about exactly what I want and what I want it to look like before I spend the rest of my budget.

This is my build so far. I have ordered an XSPC raystorm, an EK 670 waterblock, and some other small things that I'll post about when they arrive. One thing will be adding for sure is a Samsung 840 256gb SSD next pay. I grabbed a cheap HDD to hold me over, which I'll just use for extra storage when I install the SSD.

I just got my Switch in the mail <3 I have a few problems with it but overall, the case, the thought that went into it are just amazing.

I really didn't want to go with the gloss version of the case, but my girlfriend liked it more than the Matte version. I figure, she's got to live with it too so I gave her the choice between my top 5 cases.

Update:

To give a reason behind the name, the original thought was for this to be a Dexter inspired build. I've pushed that back for my girlfriends build, as she really liked the idea. That build will be a few months down the road, but it's going to be the same hardware. Differences will be a white switch 810, "bloodsplatter" paintjob, and for the front panel I'm going to remove all the bay covers and use acrylic pieces pushed together for the "bloodslides". I'll have a lot of fun with it.


For this build, the watercooling will be delivered tonight. I'll hook everything up and leaktest tonight as I'm using barbs and want it outside of the case for the initial hardware test. Better safe than sorry... I've never had a leak, but you never know if a radiator's got a hole or if a 1/4" isn't threaded right.


Back tonight with pictures!

Making sure nothing leaks before I get the case in tomorrow... and will leak test all over again! Don't mind the bud light box.. lol. It's not modding without beer, even if it's ****ty beer. I need to run out and get something decent for tomorrow.

It's built, I've got a ton of work to do on it still.. but here's a progress pic, for now.

Any recommendations on angle fittings? I'd like to change the GPU tubing around... not against using compression fittings all around. There's only 8 total.

Working on the CPU now. Can't wait to SLI these, I love my 670. Great temps especially under water. I was used to 6970's on air.. huge improvement!

nice build. as for angled adapters, i prefer ek, the original non csq adapters. they're good quality and cheaper compare to other manufacturers.
