[Build Log] SM8 Watercooled

post #1 of 88
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

I am not much for words but can and will take pics. My present PC will be taken apart and most but not all parts will get reused.

Here are some pictures to start things off.




These are the new parts that just came today. I will post more pictures as I go.

And this is what's in my present comp.


I know it's standard to type out a parts list but, the pics tell the story I think.

By the way I have never named any of my builds and there has been a couple of them wink.gif
So unless one pops in my head while I am building this it will be nameless.

Dry run to see how the rads fit and if the drain valve would fit. It does and will be the lowest part in the loop.

also plenty of room for a fan controller, that I haven't picked out yet!

There has been some progress, teardown of R4 for parts.



Putting the Pump and res together, notice the attempt at sleeving.


Another dry run

Time for the gpu block,

Motherboard time,

And now the 2 together


My first gpu waterblock installed, I have the Evga 780oc w/acx cooler. The instructions are worthless.
If it doesn't burn up into flames I will call it a win

I am out of town right now, but I can tell you the tighter bends (from the gpu to cpu) were almost impossible for me. I gave in and ordered some Bitspower dual swivel 90's.
I will post some pics by Friday.

Tubing is done, at least for now. Gave in a bit and used more Bitspower fittings then I planned on using. Bending the Primochill tubing isn't hard but, doing it without any bulges and keeping it straight is. Oh we'll it's my first go, will be good enough for now.
Anyway leak test with distiller water is in progress, pics to come. biggrin.gif

Leak test done, no leaks. Time for the blood red!






Tomorrow will be connecting everything up to the psu,
I really need 6 more fans and fan controller (LamptronCW611) but with all the money spent
so far I have to watch out for wife agro, so I will have to wait. devil-smiley-019.gif
