[Build Log / Gallery ] Air 540 - Water - 4930K - 780 - Mayhem Blue Berry!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Intro:

Hello all fellow Computer Enthusiasts and Artists. I've been working on custom systems for quite some time now. My current build is a now "outdated' Intel 980X and SLI GTX580s cooled in a 800D with 2x 480 rads. I've recently met a great group of guys who work at a local Photography studio and are looking to upgrade their workstations.

They've recently just setup a new workstation running a 4770K, with a Maximus VI Formula @ 4.6Ghz on an H110. However one of the partners at the studio are looking for something that will not only run Lightroom 4/5 faster than anything they've seen before, but also a highly threaded machine that will clock very high, while remaining silent in their recording studio.

What perfect time to start now as the new IVY-E chips have just released, unfortunately we're on a time crunch for this system, so we aren't able to go with the Rampage IV Black Edition.., it is such an incredible board and will be awesome, but who's to say I myself won't finally upgrade my current build.

There won't be many quality unboxing photos as most of these components are already widely spread! But once the build is finish, we should have high quality studio photos taken. It will also be featured at http://www.slrlounge.com/

About:

It will be used for encoding / media production with Adobe CC products. This would include Adobe PP, AE, LR and PS. Budget didn't allow for a GTX Titan at this time, but that's also why we went with a reference design board so we can simply swap cards out once budget allows.

Plans are to get the chip to at least 4.6ghz with 1.4V or less. Potentially creating another profile for Light Room tasks @ 4.8G with 1.45V.

It also needs to be silent. Contributing to the silence are Corsair SP120 PWM Quiet editions. Yes... Yes.. there are plenty of other potentially better fan choices while at a much higher price, and we already enjoy the acoustic performance of the SP120 Quiet non PWM already, so these fans will do just fine.

Project ????????? - Generally we name all of our new workstations with a Marvel character name, but we haven't decided on one yet, so why not have OCN decide for us?

Components:
  • CPU - Intel 4930K, Batch 3326B667
  • RAM - G.Skill 64GB DDR3-2400 C10
  • M/B - Asus Rampage IV Extreme
  • GPU - EVGA GTX780 SC
  • SSD - Samsung 840 EVO 1TB
  • PSU - Corsair AX860

Cooling Components:
  • CPU Block: EK Supremacy Nickel + Acetal CSQ
  • GPU Block: EK FC TITAN SE Nickel + Plexil w/ SE Backplate
  • RAD: AlphaCool XT45 240mm up top, and XT45 360 up front
  • Pump: Swiftech D5 PWM
  • RES: EK X-RES 140 w/ D5 Top
  • FAN: Corsair SP120 PWM Quiet + Corsair AF140 Quiet - as the stock AIR 540 fans are just terrible
  • Fittings: Monsoon CF Enhanced 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Matte Black
  • Adapters: Bitspower Matte Black 45 degree and 90 degree Fittings
  • Coolant: Mayhems Pure H20 and Mayhems Pastel Blue Berry

Miscellaneous:
  • Drive1: Asus Bluray 16X BW-16D1HT
  • Drive2: Asus 24X DVD Burner
  • PWM: Swiftech 8-way PWM Splitter
  • Sleeving: Visible Bare cables will be sleeved with MDPC-X Black. Certain cables may also be sleeved depending on time constraint.
  • TIM: Gelid GC Extreme
  • Filters: DEMCi Flex AIR 540 filters, case will be setup with positive pressure in mind

Without further ado let's begin with some obligatory pictures: ( Note, these were taken on a smartphone ) Once all the parts arrive, some higher detail shots will be taken






There are fitment issues with Rear 140MM Exhaust. Just need to either remove the Rubber dampers towards the outside of the case, or modify them a bit so it doesn't conflict with the side of the case.

Main components should arrive Tuesday. I will begin binning the current 4930K on Air to see how far it will go at 1.3V under load, and 1.4V OS boot only.

Water cooling components will hopefully arrive sometime next week

Update: It appears that my old stock of MDPC heatshrink has hardened. It still shrinks but doesn't have the same grab as if it was new....


Update 2: Newegg got the package in one day early! Didn't expect them to ship out on Sundays....



Also ended up getting a H110 for a future build as well as using it for binning and benching without the custom loop.

Also got the order in with PPC's, hands down the fastest processing and shipping time I've seen. Everything should be here Friday so we'll get some more higher detailed images.

Also ended up going with Monsoon CF enhanced Matte Black, Primochill Clear Advance LRT with Mayhems Pure H2O and Mayhems Pastel Blue Berry! Going to look great with those AF140 and SP120s

PPC's package came in. Was presently surprised by the amount of styrofoam used, however, it didn't end up 100% without cosmetic damage.
