[Build Log] Tiny Little - NCase M1 Water Cooled Build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I decided to jump the gun, and post my build log. I won't have time to start on it until the coming weekend, but I thought I would post a little tease. I'm using the parts that I transplanted from my old prodigy build, as well as the newly arrived liquid cooling parts:

Swiftech H220
Swiftech Hydrx PM 2 coolant
Monsoon 90° Rotary LightPort fittings (x2) matte black
Monsoon 3/8" x 5/8" compression fittings (x2) matte black
Monsoon Red LED Plugs (x2)
Monsoon Silver Bullet G1/4 plug (x1)
Primochill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing in Bloodshed Red

I already have an EK GTX 770 water block and backplate waiting to be installed. For the time being, I'll just leave this right here:

I finally sat down today to start the install and I'm glad I did. The natives were getting restless!!



One problem...I disassembled the GTX 770 and found out that I bought the wrong block!! I got it on ebay months back and didn't realize it was the wrong one. doh.gif
So now I have to wait until probably Tuesday for the correct one to arrive. rolleyessmileyanim.gif I did take out the old PSU cables, which will be replaced with the Silverstone PP05-E flat cables. Another setback, but I've waited this long...I guess I can wait a little longer.

Installed the EKWB on my GTX 770 this morning. I like the look. Makes me wish I ordered the backplate. The old one I had didn't line up correctly. Guess the old block and backplate will end up on eBay soon.

I had off yesterday, so I put the loop together. Here are some new pics. I had to scrap the light port LED's, because of space constraints.



















I ran out of time today when installing everything. My OCD is bothering me with that kinked tube. I'll have to shorten it when get time.

I just finished re-routing the tubing. Now off to sleep finishing the assembly tommorow after work. Then off on vacation!! Won't be able to torture test until next week.

I finally finished putting this rig together. I had issues bleeding air out of my loop and had CPU temps around 100C at idle. With the advice of the Swiftech rep on the H220 thread, I was able to expel the remaining air bubbles and get my temps down to around 36-40C at idle. I had a frustrating time working out the temp problems and at one point I was going to junk the H220 pump altogether. The only regrets I have with this build is that I had to literally cram everything into the tiny confines of the NCase M1 and put physical stress on the GTX 770. I have temporarily propped it up with an old iphone stand I had lying around. I plan on getting a backplate for the 770 and if that doesn't work, the fittings may be replaced and tubing shortened (again).
