Hello all.

This will be my first build log on OCN, My main systems have been water cooled since ~2001 with my first water cooled AMD Thunderbird 1.4GHz overclocked to 1.6GHz. My current system was put together in 2008 and is stuffed into a beat up Cosmos S that has its fair share of battle scars from being carted to so many LAN parties.

My main goal is to have a minimalist system, wiring and tubing kept to a minimum and cleanly run. I don't want to just hide a rats nest of wire behind the motherboard tray but to have everything looking if all panels are removed.

This build will be in two phases, the first one as below and the second one when non reference GTX780ti or R9 290 cards are released. I plan to add a second radiator and blocks for the cards and also try my luck at hard acrylic tubing.

The hardware:
Intel i7 4930K
Rampage IV Extreme Black
32GB (4x8GB) G.Skill TridentX DDR2400 10-12-12-31
Samsung 840 pro 512GB
2x WD Black 2TB hard drives
Corsair AX1200i
Corsair 900D

The cooling:
Swiftech MCR420-XP
8x Corsair SP120 quiet edition fans push/pull
Swiftech MCP35x2
Swiftech Apogee HD
Primochill 240mm CTR frankenstein res(This will combine an advanced two port top, and a low profile two port bottom with a EK 140mm inner tube)
4x Corsair SP120 quiet edition
1x Corsair SP140 quiet edition

Here is most of the gear, right now I am sleeving what appears to be an endless stream of cables
