"First Born" Phantom 820, Build Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The Hardware Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Case: NZXT Phantom 820
MoBo: Gigabyte G1-Sniper 5
CPU: Intel Haswell i5-4670k
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 780
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8gb 1600
Storage:
WD Blue 500gb HDD
Corsair Force GT 120gb SSD
PSU: Seasonic Platinum + 1000w

The Cooling System Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CPU Water block: XSPC Raystorm for Intel chips
GPU water block: XSPC for GTX Titan/780
Radiators: XSPC EX360 + XSPC EX280
Fans:
BitFenix Spectre Pro green LED 120mm x6 for push pull config
BitFenix Spectre Pro green LED 140mm x4 for push pull config
Reservoir: Swiftech Maelstrom bay res + built in MCP35x pump
Tubing: Primochill LRT green 1/2 ID, 3/4 OD
Fittings: Bitspower matte black compression 1/2 ID, 3/4 OD
Liquid + Additives: Distilled water and PTnuke

Future Plans
  • Adding another set of Corsair Dominator Platinum 2x8gb 1600 for a total of 32gb
  • Adding another EVGA Geforce GTX 780 for SLI (will also be liquid cooled)
  • Adding another XSPC EX120/140 on the back f the case with another set of BitFenix Spectre Pro green LED x2 for push pull config

What I could still use input on!
This is the main reason that I created this thread, so I could get active feed back on my build and get any suggestions
that people may be willing to contribute. Here are some specific questions that I have.
  1. I could use help on a name for this PC, that's why I created the poll, so please if you could just spare a second and vote that would be fantastic!
  2. Is the size of my PSU going to be good enough for my future updates, or is it just overkill across the board?
  3. Is my MoBo and CPU overkill for gaming, I have one monitor and plan on playing mostly BF4 when it comes out. If you think it is to much for my needs
    could you make suggestion to a good quality MoBo and CPU.
  4. is cooling the already built in water block chip set on the G1-sniper 5 worth it? the reason I ask is because to use that feature I would have to either
    down size my tubing to make it all fit and get smaller compression fittings or I would have to get tubing and fitting just so I could use that feature.
  5. Do I have enough radiators to cool my system effectively, especially since I will be using a push-pull setup, and my future needs, especially if I plan to overclock?
  6. If I want to OC my RAM is it necessary to get a water block for them?
  7. Any other suggestions are very much welcome!

How in the world did they manage to hook up the watercooling to those titans in the last photo?

Edit: Wait, did they even? I cant tell. Looks like it kind of hooks into the bottom card. Otherwise why is there fittings under that card?

They have the pump sitting on top of the PSU, at least thats what it looks like to me when I found the pic

Ah, yes the pump. It never dawned on me that I didn't see it anywhere else.
