[Build log] Project Green Abyss

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Welcome to my Build log, This is a work in progress so i will post updates when they happen.
This is my 2nd WC build but my first Build log! Comments are apreciated. So the aim of this build log is to change from my current build, an 800D Dual loop to a single loop in a MM U2-Ufo.


So the hardware inside:
I5 3570K 3.4Ghz - in the 800D clocked at 4.5
Corsair Vengence 16GB DDR3
Gigabyte Z77 UD5H
X2 Gainward GTX 570 GLH,
OCZ Vertex 3 250GB SSD
WD Black 2TB

CPU block - EK HF supreme Copper Plexi
GPU Blocks - EK FC570 GTX non Reference Copper Plexi
Radiators (currently in 800D) XSPC RS360, EK Coolstream 240 XTX
Ive bought a EK Coolstream 360 XT triple to add to the new build and replace the 240.

The 800D i have a XSPC Dual Bay res with the Liang 12V DDC pumps, This is being swapped out for a EK multioption 250.


So the new case was purchased from Mountain Mods website. I think these cases are like marmite, You either love them or hate them! im the former!

I picked a U2-UFO CYO,
Mirror Black finish with smoked glass.
3 sides were:
original top,
Side 1, triple half window.
Side 2, Full window

So ill start with the assembled case, I wont bore you with pictures of it in bits and in the packets, Here it is,



Ill get some more pics up of the case with the sides when i get home from work.

More to follow so grab yer popcorn!

I removed the standard chrome reset and power buttons and replaced them with Anti Vandal switches, These have the green lights on them when powered.

With that the PSU was out. with its fat ugly cable shrouding. I never bothered with it before as in the 800D it was hidden from view.



I cracked it open



and operation sleeving commenced!



(I know, the shroud went a bit skiwhif!)




Ive got 9 more wires to do on the main 24pin, at this point my hands and fingers feel like ive worn them to the bone!!

Slight snag with the sleeving, I ran out of it!!! More on order!
just 22 more wires to do

Update on what it looks like (i also found out that the plastic ring that goes around the hole where the wires come out of the psu wont actually fit any more!





I know it the shroud isnt great but after actually doing sleeving, ive decided that i hate doing it!

Looks good so far but IMO the sleeving would have looked much better going shrinkless.
