How does this build look? (Going to watercool it, too.)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Good evening OCN-Watercoolers,

I've been modifying this mock-build for a few months now, and I've decided that I wanted to watercool it. However, I've never dealt with watercooling.

I also plan on switch out the CPU for the newer one when it's released.

Here is the current-mock up:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz 6-Core Processor ($567.27 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Extreme EATX LGA2011 Motherboard ($415.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($399.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($231.51 @ Amazon)
Storage: Western Digital WD Black 4TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($276.24 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($663.98 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($663.98 @ Newegg)
Case: Corsair 900D ATX Full Tower Case ($349.99 @ Amazon)

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (64-bit) ($89.74 @ Amazon)
Monitor: Asus VG23AH 23.0" Monitor (Purchased For $0.00)
Keyboard: Corsair Vengeance K95 Wired Gaming Keyboard ($149.99 @ Best Buy)
Mouse: Corsair Vengeance M95 Wired Laser Mouse ($79.99 @ Best Buy)
Total: $4169.16
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

I've planned to put about $1000 into the complete water-cooling system, but I don't mind going up in price if it means better performance.
Any thoughts on the build overall?

I've gone with the 900D for space, and plan on going dual-pump with Radiators in every possibly spot. tongue.gif

Thanks

With SLI 780s please get a 144hz monitor like the asus vg248qe.
I am doing the same thing in my rig, with 2x240mm rads and a 120mm. If temps are too high then I will put a 60mm thick 280mm rad on the top.
You can probably get away with $700 of cooling hardware.
Put that 4tb in an external enclosure it will leave a lot more space in the case.

I'll eventually be swapping out that 1 monitor for (3) 1440p monitors, 27". I already own the monitor, which is why it's listed.
I was also thinking of just building a NAS box, and having that be my main source of storage.

Any thoughts on the watercooling though? If it'll make things easier, I'll change the case.

Changing the case would make watercooling much easier.

Yeah, I plan on making it a nice one; it's just going to be a year or so until I actually get to go high end like this.

I like the reference look, and won't get a graphics card unless it's that style. smile.gif (or watercooled)
