[Build Log] - stickg1's OCN Marketplace Monster

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I took the day off for my birthday and I just got done accumulating all the parts I need to finally complete my build. For months now I have been buying/selling/trading on the OCN Marketplace and I have been accumulating parts here or there to build the ideal machine for my needs. Everything in this case except for the case itself and some of the tubing/fittings (Newegg and PPCS) came from the OCN Marketplace. Thanks for all the killer deals!

Here is what's inside:

i7-3770K delidded
ASUS Maximus V Formula
G.Skill 2600CL10 2x4GB (Samsung HCH9's)
EVGA GTX 680 SC
- EK full cover block
- EK backplate
Seasonic X-650
Crucial M4 256GB
WD Black 750GB 2.5"
Fractal Designs Arc Midi R2
W/C Gear
- Swiftech MCP655b
- Black Ice GT 240 w/ push/pull Corsair SP120 High's
- XSPC RS240 w/ Thermalright High's
- XSPC Raystorm
- Bitspower Z-Tank 150mm
- Various chrome 1/2" and 3/8" barbs
- 7/16" ID & 3/8" ID Primochill Advanced LRT

I went with under-sized tubing so I could go clampless for most of the runs. But paranoia got the best of me and I put some Phobya hex key clamps on anything close to the motherboard or over the GPU. Better safe than sorry!

Lots of pictures, I tried to get the best shots I could, I will post more at night time to get the glowing effect. and better low light shots.

Here is the mess/workbench:

I've decided to add some white LED lighting to highlight the components. Also the side window for this case is a smoked acrylic and a light glow coming from it looks quite nice as I learned from my Arc Mini build.

This is where I mounted the top LED strip

Pretty cheaply done but this one will be hidden, the lower one I made last week and took the time the spray paint the LED strip flat black, I had to go back and clean all the LEDs off with a Q-Tip and mineral spirits. Very time consuming.
If you're wondering I used HitLights LED's, you can get a 16ft. roll on Amazon for $15. Then just use some wire to connect them to molex plugs and you have some very affordable lighting.

Fitting it all together:

Leak Testing!

Everything is starting to come together

Thanks, I might go with a pump top to mount the reservoir directly over. Looking for a deal in the marketplace.
