[Build Log] DCCC-4 - custom SLI watercooled, 3D printed parts.

DCCC-4


Hi there:)

I'm restarting this build log, my first attempt was messy...

When i start this log the build is already well on its way but not quite finished. Its a gaming setup with water cooling on CPU and GPUs.

The cabinet i am building in is flat-black all the way through and i am trying to keep everything but the water this color. I do this to make the waterloop stand out, and not to create a discotheque inside my computer. I can change the color of the coolant without it clashing with the rest of the system. I have seen many builds where people choose a color for their build and try to use that color on every detail in the build, which imo. can lead to the build looking messy/unclean. But thats just my opinion, ppl should build however they like tongue.gif

Presentation / OC

First installation of hardware, the camera is cheap so the pics isnt great, will borrow a good camera for the final pics.



My main board is, as stated above, a Z77 card from ASRock. The Extreme 3 is the little brother in this series, but it got everything i need, chose to spend my cash other-ways, not that i had foreseen how deep into this i was going to get when i did my first little upgrades on my previous PC. XD

I didn't win the silicone-lottery with my CPU, but i run prime95 / 12hrs stable 4.3GHz just under 1.3v and thats plenty power for me. This voltage should also insure good longevity for my chip.

The VGAs come from MSI and are fairy fit without any OC. What i didnt consider, was the possibility for watercooling. The MSI GTX 670 is not a reference card so a full block was not available...

...or so i thought, until i found this:
http://www.liquidextasy.de/

This is the only manufacturer of full-blocks i have found for my cards. Its a company in Germany and they make blocks when ordered. This leads to long delivery times. I think they start producing new batches every 14 days. So with the long delivery time, international shipping, price and 2x because of SLI, i chose to go with universal GPU blocks from EK instead. These will most likely be usable on future upgrades aswell.

The PSU is, along with a 500Gb hard drive, the only things left from my previous PC.

When trying to make something look better its always smart to start with the ugliest part first XD



The DVD, yeah, i know, its ancient technology, masking...



Can of spraypaint.



Smack it back in the case:)

Fan control:



Basic / budget fan controller, unfortunately with blue LEDs, was planning to change these to green but when i used a splitter and connected 3 fans to one channel, the LED stopped working. I guess the LED need the volt/amp with one fan only to work, kinda suck but i might as well disconnect all the LED now, well see.

Lazy mans sleeving, heat shrink ftw:D



Might be done better in the future, at least the colors are gone.

Pump:

I chose to place my pump in the bottom of the cabinet for several reasons but more on this later. I removed parts of the bottom and drilled out the rivets in one of the HD-bay walls.



After i put the pump in, i reconnected the HD-bay wall with a zip-tie, this makes it easy to access the pump later, and it maintains the structural integrity of the cabinet.

Mounting of bottom chamber cover:

Small mod on the mid plate:



Fun with dremmel, small job for big hands, not the cleanest cut:



Some cosmetic adjustments tongue.gif



Slide your plastic sheet in from the right:



And its in:



For this plate i have two options:
1. Cover its front with flat-black foil.
2. Cover its front with flat-black foil and the back with frosted foil, then cut a pattern in black foil and put a light source behind it.
Need to think some more on that one...

Airflow to the VGAs:

As i stated previously, only the GPUs will be water-cooled, this means that video memory and voltage regulators will need passive cooling / heat sinks. To ensure decent airflow over the VGAs i have designed an "air canal" (im lacking an English word for this, anyone?) that will lead air straight over the cards.



Here you can see how the air will be evenly distributed to the two cards:



This canal will be made from 3-4mm acrylic. Pics comming soon, almost done...
