[Build Log] Mega PC!!! 900D | 3930K | SLI Titan's First watercooled build Oodles of HQ Pics inside!

post #1 of 63
Thread Starter 
First off I'm not much of a wordsmith so I'll try and keep this quick. And about the name, its an inside joke I'm well aware that its not that mega. A couple months ago I figured out I wanted to build my own PC, nothing special, simple all in one watercooling. Then this happened.

My blank canvas...




Main Components

  • Corsair 900D ATX Full Tower Case
  • Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor
  • Asus Rampage IV Formula ATX LGA2011 Motherboard
  • Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
  • Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
  • 5 TB's of Western Digital Hard Drives (3 total)
  • 2 EVGA GeForce GTX Titan SuperClocked 6GB Video Card
  • Corsair Professional Series AX 1200 Watt 80 PLUS Gold w/ Corsair Red Individually Sleeved Cables
  • Microsoft Windows 7 Professional



Cooling Components

  • Swiftech MCP655 PWM 12v Water Pump
  • Bitspower D5 / MCP655 Pump Mod Top V2

  • (3) Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PL-2 120mm x 25mm 1400 RPM
  • (6) Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PLPS 120mm x 25mm PWM 600-1500 RPM
  • (4) Bitspower G1/4 Male to Female Extender - 15mm - Matte Black
  • (4) Bitspower G1/4 Male to Female Extender - 20mm - Matte Black
  • (2) Bitspower G1/4 Male to Female Extender - 25mm - Matte Black
  • (2) Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black Male to Male Rotary Extender
  • (1) Bitspower G1/4" Mini Valve - Matte Black
  • (1) Bitspower G1/4" Matte Black T Adapter
  • (6) Bitspower G1/4" Matte Black Rotary 45 Degree G1/4" Adapter

  • (10) Bitspower G1/4" Low Profile Matte Black Stop Plug
  • Aquacomputer Pressure Equalization Membrane G1/4 Thread - Flat Version
  • Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250 Inline Reservoir - Ice Red
  • Bitspower G1/4 Z-CAP II Water Tank Z Cap x 3 Ports
  • Tygon A-60-G Norprene 1/2" ID (3/4" OD)



Miscellaneous Garbage

  • (2) ModMyToys Acrylic LED G1/4 Plug - White LED / Black Sleeve
  • Mod/Smart Kobra High Density Cable Sleeving 3/4" (for the tubing)
  • 8-Pin Power Distribution PCB 8xWay Block
  • EVGA GeForce GTX Titan Backplate
  • Swiftech 8-Way PWM Cable Splitter


Future Plans

Once I know I'm capable of doing my own loop I will eventually buy another Titan and then put them both on water. Not sure if I will just add another loop just for them or do something else entirely. Still trying to decide on what I should do for the lighting. Right now the only thing I have is the two LED plugs to light up the res so we'll see how that turns out. And I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting.


Latest Updates

5.26.13 - Photos photos and more photos!
5.27.13 - Fans, motherboard, radiator, SSD, and PSU installed.
5.30.13 - Just some photos of the reservoir and fittings
5.31.13 - First sleeved tube installed.
6.2.13 - Loop completed

Btw you can see even more photos, and in all there high res glory at my Flickr Set.

For the record I bought a DSLR just to document the build so thats the reason for the photo spam. Also, this new hobby is becoming costly...

First step was to take pictures of all the components that are worthy of it so here goes.

The Asus Rampage IV Formula Motherboard








Memory installed






The 3930k




Block installed










Pump






The block before installation




And what I'm planning on doing with my tubing

Boring as hell empty 900D photos. Just fyi its hard to make interesting photos with an empty case.

Shown in the layout I plan to use with only 1 HDD cage. Plan is to mount the pump on top of that support bracket then have the reservoir attached to it with a male to male rotary fitting. Not exactly sure if I'm going to mount it on the back or forwards yet.



















I might put my fans in tonight yet, photos will probably follow tomorrow after I install the motherboard.

All my fittings, tubing, and res won't be here till Tuesday sadly.

Thanks and its just a Canon T3i, the component photos are all done with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, 900D photos are just with the kit lens.

Thank you very much kind sir!

Btw if anyone is wondering where the Titan is, its in my current PC because I didn't like it sitting in the box. Titan running with a stock Intel 2600k, no bottlenecks there! Once I'm ready to switch it over I'll take some glamor photos of it as well.
