[Build Log] Yet another HAF 932 Water Build lol

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is not a build from the ground up per say. Its more of a transition from a AIO cpu cooler and stock video card air coolers to putting both the CPU and GPU's under a custom loop. This is also my first custom loop so go easy on me, still lots to learn.thumb.gif

Hardware:
  • Cooler Master HAF 932
  • Corsair HX 850 PSU
  • Asus P6X58-E WS
  • Core i7 920 @ 4.01ghz
  • 24gb (3x 8gb) Corsair Vengeance Black 1600 RAM
  • 2 EVGA geForce GTX 680 SC's in SLI
  • 4 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black Drives
  • Creative Sound Blaster Recon 3D PCIe
  • LG Blu-Ray Writer

Cooling:
  • Swiftech Apogee HD CPU Block
  • 2 XSPC Razor GTX 680 Full Cover Blocks
  • Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper Triple 120mm Radiator & Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper Single 120mm Radiator
  • Swiftech Maelstrom Reservoir
  • Swiftech MP655-SE Pump
  • 12 Swiftech Lok-Seal 5/8th OD, 3/8th ID Black Compression Fittings, 2 Swiftech Lok-Seal 90 Degree Elbow Fittings, 2 Swiftech Lok-Seal 45 Degree Elbow Fittings and, 1 41mm to 65mm adjustable chrome SLI Lok-Seal Fitting
  • Tygon 3603 5/8th OD, 3/8th ID tubing (Yes I know of its leeching issue, going to replace it something different come system flush time).
  • Primochill PC PURE clear coolent


Overview of most of the hardware I used (I didn't use the Primochill tubing however)


Close up of the cooling. parts The Koolence QDC's O-Rings broke after I connected the two together angrysmiley.gif


Close Up of the Apogee HD


With her compression fittings installed.


Close up of the bay res.


What the SE in MP655-SE allows the user to do. (I ended up also using a 90 degree elbow fitting on the inlet instead of the just the compression fitting)


What came in the boxes for my XSPC Razor blocks. I kept the plastic shielding on the blocks (until install) so to keep that nice brushed aluminum finish intact




Close ups of the blocks and SLI fitting installed on the cards


Ended up moving the compression fitting to the top connection instead of facing away from the block.


Overview of all the installed blocks


3 hours in to the leak testing with one of the heaviest "external" PSU's I have :haha:



Pictures of the finished product.

Also is it just me or was anyone else just a slight bit nervous when they switched on their first custom loop for the first time? I spent over 8 months researching and planing, the system passed its 24+ hour leak test with ZERO leaks but even then I just a little nervous when I pushed the power button for the first time.

Overall though I'm happy with the result, had a few leaks with some defective elbow fittings (they leaked where they swivelled :blarg:) but the system passed its leak test after I replace them (I did 30 hours + an external PSU just to be safe), and the near silence of the system is golden thumb.gif

Nice build!

And I feel ya about being nervous, I'm always scared the first time I power on my build after installing the loop. I think it happens to just about everyone haha. Nothing like a couple drops of water to ruin thousands of dollars worth of hardware eh?

Thanks. I'm using non-conductive coolant but that won't stay non-conductive forever though. So ya it would suck if it leaked, since most warranties don't cover water cooling f-up's tongue.gif Also I'm so jealous of that 920 of yours. 4.2 on less then 1.3 volts. I can only get 4.01 @ 1.415 volts thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
