[Build Log] Moving from Switch 810 to FrozenQ Liquid Full tower X2

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I decided to turn this into my build log to keep track of what all im doing. My plans are to finish up my WC build i did with the help of this forum 8 months ago. I plan on doing new Fittings and utilizing 45 degree and 90 degree fittings to try and make it nice and clean. Also i am adding a 140mm Alphacool UT60 radiator to the loop, switching out my 250mL res for a 400mL clear one, putting my two pumps into one with an acrylic top. Relocating the 240 rad to the front in a push pull config. resleeving all the cables in a blue and (To be determined) color. Finish wraping the case in carbon fiber vinyl.

im looking at switching all my compression fittings to the monsoon black carbon fiber 1/2in ID X 3/4in OD. and was wondering weather or not to go with their rotary fittings because i like the look but haven't read/found many reviews of them. so i was also looking at getting a bunch of bitspower rotary connectors to use instead because ive used a few in my loop and like the quality.

Also was looking at using the Primochill advanced LRT tubing. was wondering what people who have used this tubing think or if i should try another brand colored tubing.

lastly i will be placing and order from MDPCX to do blue and an undecided color heatshrinkless sleeving. i found some videos and did one of my GPU cables the heatshrinkless way and it is totally awesome so now redoing all my sleeving

Here is my current setup.

NZXT switch 810 case
XFX 1250 watt power supply
360 mm radiator up top
240 mm radiator on bottom
250ml frozenQ coil res
bitspower/enzotech compression fittings with angle sprinkled throughout.
2 X gtx580 on waterblocks
i7-3820 with XSPC raystorm waterblock
2 X swiftech MCP35X pumps

heres some pics

So im currently waiting on the new radiator and res to show up.

adding a 140 mm radiator to the front

changing the res to a bitspower 400mL

combining the two pumps with an acrylic top.

so i moved my 240 radiator from the bottom to the front today and set one of my pumps up on the bottom of res. waiting to get the acrylic top to combine the two pumps and add the 400mL res and the 140mm rad. i think im going to put the 140mm rad in the back as an exhaust.

This is the overall view with new radiator position


this is the heatshrinkles sleeving ive been practicing in preparation for my MDPC order


Front 240mm radiator in new spot


CPU block. removed the unsleeved red wires and went with only two leds on block


another angle


looking down on fans for 360mm radiator up top


another angle


Front view of entire case

Just a personal suggestion, given you look like you were trying to match the blue of your motherboard, maybe consider going with Mayhem's Pastel? They have a color that's pretty much the same as your mb/fans here's an example by Ficu:



Would definitely look awesome

i was looking into using that but i had heard there was some settling issues with it separating and possibly not good for use in loops with multiple 45 and 90 degree fittings. not totally sure but the little research i did that seemed to be the consensus on it tho.

Ok so heres an update on what im looking at doing.

i plan on changing out both my GPU waterblocks because alphacool stopped making the 580 block which i have one of and was planning on buying a second. but now im leaning towards the watercool heatkiller 580 blocks with their SLI dual link bridge.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12904/ex-blc-901/Heatkiller_GPU-X_GTX_570_580_nVidia_GTX_570580_Reference_Design_Full_Coverage_Water_Block_15510.html

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17559/ex-blc-1369/Heatkiller_GPU-X_Series_Dual_Link_Bridge_Block_10196.html

im also leaning towards using monsoon white 45 and 90 degree rotary adapters with the blue monsoon 1/2in ID X 3/4in OD compression fittings.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14934/ex-tub-1109/Monsoon_Free_Center_Compression_Fitting_-_12ID_x_34OD_-_Modders_6_Pack_Blue_FCC-1234-6P-BL.html?tl=g30c569s1764

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18063/ex-tub-1646/Monsoon_90_Rotary_Angle_Adapter_-_34_OD_-_White_MON-RO-90-34-WH.html?tl=g30c569s1757

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/18070/ex-tub-1653/Monsoon_45_Rotary_Angle_Adapter_-_34_OD_-_White_MON-RO-45-34-WH.html?tl=g30c569s1756

I will be making custom length PSU cables with MDPC sleeving in blue and white. im planning on buying 16AWG black and white wire from lutro custom because its a good price and seems like decent quality.

i will be using primochill advanced LRT clear tubing and possibly the mayhem pastel blue.

So its been a while since my last update. Had to move end of last month. But now i have my FrozenQ Liquid Full Tower X2 ordered and hopefully it gets shipped soon. Doing it in Blue and White. Also ordering a tri spiral FrozenQ res in white/light blue/blue.

I've started doing some of the sleeving as i will be using extension cables to get the blue/white color scheme to match up on the PSU plugs and where they plug into components. they will get miss matched in the back but look clean in front. Here's one GPU cable and my 24pin extension cable. Some cable sewing in progress






I will be purchasing monsoon 45 and 90 degree rotary fittings in white with blue accent disk, and White monsoon compression fittings. Also purchasing one 360mm rad in white (I already have one) plan on running two of these. Was debating on getting two monster 360 rads instead.
