Hey guys! Still pretty new here, but wanted to post my recent build using the 750D. There's still a bit to do on it, but it's getting there. Ive been building my own PCs since 2003, but this was my first time I sleeved and did a full WC loop in a build. Really the first time it was more about how it looked than just getting it done. Definitely a learning process.
Things I still want to to:
- Sleeve SATA and Molex power cables (kinda got excited and skipped them
- Mount WC drain bulkhead in bottom (Right now just hiding behind the front 240 rad.)
- Put backplates on the graphics cards.
- Planning to paint the PSU shroud and GPU backplates white but still not sure if I will do that.
- Redo a lot of the cable management. (The back is not the best - hence no pics of that side
- I am also going to resleeve some parts to use more white and remove the blue sleeve on the 24-pin cable. Didnt quite turn out how I planned. I am currently making custom PCI-E cables too.
- Move fans in top rad above rad for push. Didn't quite have room for Push/Pull. Air is pulled in by boths rads and exhausted out the back via a single 140mm fan.
I am pretty happy with the temps:
Water Loop: 28C Idle / 34C Load
CPU: ~35C Idle / 60C Max under load
GPUS: ~28C Idle / 40C max under load
i5-3570k @4.2ghz (havent had time to really push her)
1TB bargain WD hard drive that's loud as crap. (Its days are numbered
120 GB Intel SSD (OS)
240 GB Crucial M500 SSD (Stuff I was faster
2 GTX 770 SLI (nVidia Reference model nothing special)
Cooler Master SPG 1200 PSU (Overkill I konw, and pain to sleeve to boot)
16 GB Corsair Vengeance Ram
XSPC fittings, radiators, reservoir, tubing (switch to Primochill Adv LRT soon), and cpu/gpu blocks.
Swiftech D5 Pump
EK Pump Top
EK 90 deg rotary fitting (under res)
Bitspower link fitting between GPUs and between res and pump top.
Corsair SP120 QE Fans on res and stock case 140 at back.
Betfenix Recon FC in the front. Want to upgrade to Lamptron and Aqua Tuning at some point.
For now, though here she is. Once I get more time, I will tackle that top list.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Hope you guys like it. I really had a blast working on it and OCN was indispensable during the process.Edit: Removed last image as it was an old revision.Edit 2: Read wrong value on the CPU temp (facepalm). The ideal temp is closer to 35 or so. That's one thing that been weird is the idle temp is sporadic and will touch 40 some but when under load it levels out around 60. I guess id rather idle temp be odd than the load but next time drain I will prob re-mount the CPU block and reapply TIM.Edited by SonicGamer - 4/4/14 at 9:31pm
