[Build Log] AZZA Genesis 9000 water cooled computer build

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
After years of strictly air cooling with a short time of water cooling in the early 2000's, I have decided to turn my current air-cooled beast into an overclocked, water cooled monster.

This build log will show my progress.


Concept:
I've been wanting to make a current water cooled build for a long time and just haven't had the time, nor the money. Now that I am back in the work force, I have money to spend and am now going to give my computer the body it deserves.

The plan is to do one single loop that will service both the CPU, RAM, and HDD. The plan to cool the NB and GPU have been scrapped both by incompatibility (GPU being an extended card) and looks.


Hardware:
The computer will be built upon my current build. The parts include: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black edition OC to 4ghz, a Gigabyte Radeon HD 6870 Super Overclocked Edition, two 4gb Patriot Gamer 2 Series RAM clocked at 1600mhz for a total of 8gb, a Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD @ 5400rpm, and a Thermaltake TR2 600W powersupply. On top of that there's some extra stuff like an OEM DVD drive and an Aerocool fan controller.


Parts list (Both to buy and have:

Water Blocks:
CPU - XS-PC Raystorm
RAM - XS-PC Memory Waterblock (4 Slot) w/ XS-PC Universal Memory Side Plate (Twin Set)
HDD - Magicool Hybrid Pro 3.5" HDD Water Block / Anti-Vibration Adapter

Radiators:
XS-PC EX280 Slim Line
XS-PC EX360 Slim Line

Res and pumps:
XS-PC Dual 750lph Bay Pump Reservoir V4 - Black

Tubing and fittings:
PrimoChilll 1/2" OD Rigid Acrylic Tube - 4x 24" Pack - Clear
XS-PC G1/4 to 1/2 Barb Fitting (Black Chrome)
Black Plastic Hose Clip 13.0 to 15 (1/2 OD)

Accessories:
XS-PC - EC6 Non Conductive Coolant - Blood Red
XS-PC 5mm Red LED with 4 Pin Molex
XS-PC Twin Wired Red 3mm LEDs with 4Pin - Black - 30cm x2


To do list will be in next post.

I just realize I forgot to put that in the title. I have fallen deeply in love with the AZZA Genesis 9000. I'll be ordering it tomorrow and begin stage 1 this weekend and holiday.

I like the professional look of them but the cost and lack of presence makes them not right for this build. I'll keep them in mind for future builds.
