[Build Log] "White Banshee" - CaseLabs STH-10 || Bent Acrylic Tubing || Tripple 560mm

"White Banshee"

This is my first build log on Overclock.net but by no means first water-cooled build. I am I long time lurker first time poster.thumb.gif

The theme for this build is Black and White. These will be (hopefully) the only two colors visible in the case. The build is based off of the incredible CaseLabs STH-10 most of the parts have been ordered and are on their way. I will be using acrylic tubing throughout the build. All visible tubing will be acrylic any other tubing required for connecting the radiators in the bottom and top of the case will not be visible. This is my dream system and I intend to put as much care and attention into the build as possible. No expense or time will be spared in making this the best that it can be.

The parts list is as follows:

Ordered:
  • CaseLabs STH10 (XXL window, casters, 4 x 4.140 rad mounts)
  • Rampage IV Extreme
  • i7-3930K
  • Seasonic 860 watt PSU (possible upgrade)
  • 3 x Alphacool NexXxos UT60 560
  • Alphacool NexXxos UT60 280
  • EK Cpu block
  • EK Rampage IV extreme
  • PPC Dual Uber 665 (Single Loop)
  • Bitspower 250ml pump top upgrade
  • E22 Clear Acrylic Tubing
  • Various Bitspower black fittings
  • Mayhem Pastel Ice White Concentrate
  • other misc parts

To be Ordered:
  • Fans (looking at Swiftech Helix 140mm & Bit Fenix Spectre Pro 140mm) [bought one of each to test]
  • Lighting
  • Fan Controller
  • Graphics Cards
  • Graphics Cards Blocks

I am unsure what graphics cards I am going to buy at the moment. I am going to wait until the end of the build to choose. I am basically wide open to suggestions. Possibly next gen AMD cards if they are out in time or gtx 780 / 770. I have a single GTX 680 4GB right now (for sale) and I am wanting to upgrade to the 700 series as the 680 4GB does not look to be coming down in price at all, cheaper to just buy 770.


I will add regular pictures as the mod progresses and parts arrive along with some video content (definite full overview video planned when build is finished). I own a Canon EOS 5D mark II along with many high quality lenses so picture quality should be incredible.

As you can see this is a huge build and a dream for me. Thanks for looking!
