SM8 - GTX690 - Looking for help in Manhattan NY!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

I started building a liquid cooled computer at the end of last year but had to put the project on hold. I want to get to building this computer but I was looking for some help building the computer.
These are the parts I currently own.

Caselabs SM8
Sabertooth Z77
Ivy bridge i5
GTX690
Corsair AX1200
Aqualis Res.
480 Alphacool Rad
360 Alphacool Rad
Yateloon Fans
Bitpower Silver Shining Fittings
Koolance QuickDisconnects
EK Supremacy CPU Block
Hydrocopper GTX690 Block

So it seems I have all the parts required but since I have never built a liquid cooled computer before so I am looking for some help in building it! If anyone is near the NYC area and is interested shoot me a PM. Thanks all!

Regards,
Christopher Gu

Will do! I don't have a good camera but I will definitely take pictures

I have all the air cooling stuff on right now and the computer is functional. I'll put on the operating system and take a few pictures then.

Keep you posted

There is a ton of information in the watercooling forum here on the site. Tons of youtube videos as well which will lay out the basics of the do and do nots of intro watercooling.

Always flush your loop
Always leak test 24 hours before turning you entire system on (connect the black and black cables on the 24 pin)
Always double check your work
Always know what you are doing before you take things apart to be sure you can put them back together.

I can try to help you with the questions you have the best I can. What are you concerned about?

I'll be in the NYC area for work in a few weeks if you would like some help.

But as far as the build goes, taking your time is the number one thing to take into account. Building the loop is actually quite easy, and should be pretty painless as long as you take your time to make sure things are done right.

That would be great! I've been reading up quite a bit to make sure I plan this out properly but I am sure your experience will definitely help out. I'll let you know what I had in mind and we can exchange ideas on how to improve upon what I have done so far.

You'll have to let me treat you out to dinner while you are here. Let me know when you'll be around. By the way awesome looking rig!

Christopher Gu

I'm going to be in town from April 5th to April 9th. Most of the days will be tied up with work, but I'll be available from late afternoon to evening.
