[Build Log] My Phantom is Kinda Heavy Now....(Three rads, OG Phantom)COMPLETED

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN! Let me just first say that this is my first build log and foray into watercooling so if anyone sees any noob mistakes in either let me know im trying to learn =). The idea with this build is basically to cram as much performance as my wallet will allow into my favorite case of all time. Now before all you 900d/switch plastic haters terror me i am fully aware that my taste is probably against popular belief but i love the futuristic stylized look of it =). Im gunna try and keep things short and sweet and im very impatient so chances are ill have this finished in a cpl updates once all my toys get recieved. And one more thing, it will prob be a mix of pics from my note 3 and my brothers dslr when i can get to his house and steal it from him muahaha, the final pics im getting my more experinced friend to do though so no worries =).

Kk so on to the parts list:

Hardware:
Z77 Sabertooth
i7 3770k
2x R9 290x
32gb GSkill Sniper 1866
500gb Samsung EVO SSD
Asus Xonar Essence STX
Rosewill 1000w Lightning PSU

Cooling:
Alphacool 240mm Monsta Rad
Alphacool 240mm xt45
Alphacool 120mm xt45
Alphacool dual bay res
Alphacool D5 Vario
EK Supremacy Cpu block
EK R9 290x FC gpu blocks(Plus Backplates) x 2
Monsoon free center compression fittings x a bunch
Monsoon 90/45 angle fittings x a bunch
Corsair sp120 x a bunch
Primochill 1/2x3/4 Tubing
Mayhems Pastel Blue Coolant

I probably forgot something but ill add it later if its important. The one thing im gunna hold off on in this build is sleeving. Reason being is because i just want to focus on figuring out the water cooling first and then if it needs it ill learn sleeving later, but i did buy a cpl sleeved extensions and i like the look of the lightnings modular fittings with it stock.

Alright so to start things off heres a cpl awful pictures of the current setup and some of the stuff ive already recieved.







Alright that's it for now until rest of my packages arrive i have everything either on the way or preordered so hopefully i get todo some work by the weekend =). Pls let me know if theres anything im forgetting!

Looking very nice so far. How are you fitting all those rads in there? Im assuming you have got 240 rad in the top and the 120 rad at the back, where is the other 240 rad? Have you removed the hard drive cages and placed it at the bottom there?
