[Build Log] Green machine Acrylic build

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
This happens to be my second ever build, where I want to expand everything I've learned and read into on those forums on. Having a lot of time being isolated on a empty post that is shutting down here in Germany and my wife being back in the states, I have had a lot of time spent on these forums I've found. I have had a few weeks long thought process of what I want in my build and also looking into simple parts I could re use down the road. This is how I am looking right now with most of my parts ordered; Pictures will be posted everytime I receive parts and every step through out this build.

The color scheme I am going for is green/white with some black in there.



Main Components

  • Corsair 900d
  • i7 4770k
  • 32g of skill ram
  • x2 gtx 780 GPU
  • Gigabyte g1 sniper 5 z87
  • Plenty of corsair sp120 fans lol
  • SAMSUNG 840 Series 120gb SSD
  • Western Digital WD VelociRaptor 600gb 10000rpm x 4
  • Corsair ax1200i


Now onto the watercooling components I will be using for the build, I am still unsure of if I will be watercooling the mobo but I am highly considering. For watercooling components I didn't want to go mix match different brands of products so I decided to go with all EK products besides for the fittings I will be using monsoon 90 degree angled fittings with rigid primochill fittings.

Watercooling Components
  • EK 250mm 3x Reservoir x2
  • mcp35 x2 swift tech pump
  • Bitspower G1/4" Matte Black T Adapter
  • Bitspower G1/4" Mini Valve - Matte Black
  • Monsoon 90° Rotary Angle Adapter - White
  • PrimoChilll 1/2" OD Rigid Acrylic Tube
  • PrimoChilll 1/2" OD Rigid Ghost Compression Fittings - White
  • Bitspower G 1/4" Temperature Sensor Stop Fitting - Matte black
  • XSPC LCD Temperature Sensor
  • EK Monarch Series X4 Ram Liquid Cooling Block
  • EK Supremacy Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Clean Nickel
  • EK GeForce 780 GTX Ti VGA Liquid Cooling Block x 2
  • (Possibility) EK Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 Liquid Cooling Block


Along with this components I have decided to go with doing some of my own mods to the case. I went and bought green plasti dip I am looking into painting the whole inside of the case green with plasti dip, along with the fins of the corsair fans. I am also looking into putting a acrylic sheet on the bottom on the case about the 480 rad. For fan controllers I have been looking into the aquaero, or the corsair links system. Considering this is only my second build and I am going pretty big with it I would love criticisms/suggestions or anything words thumbs up or thumbs down on anything from anyone with a lot more knowledge of wc than me which I am sure is 99.9% of you on here:). Here is a picture of a layout, I am not sure if I want to leave the 360 up top like that or put it in the front. I have read that the 480 fits a lot better on the bottom of the case where I have it than the top. I might take out the 120 and put a 240 or another 360. I am looking to run two different fluids through my system, so as of right now I am not sure how I am going to run my loop as I am reading more into people who have done it.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

Thanks for looking, I will be on here regularly reading and what not and will be posting pictures hopefully this week of most of my parts.

Today I received some of my very few pieces to my puzzle so here's a first look

As you can see I had purchased the monsoon bending kit for the 16mm acrylic tubing but unless I am misinformed I only seem to find ek fittings for that size of tubing and there isn't many options and I'd rather go with a promo chill fitting of course so I'll be switching to 12mm tubing which I've already ordered.

I received some more parts, almost all of them still waiting on my two 780s and power supply and my water blocks for my gpus and mobo. I decided not to goo with painting the inside of my case instead I bought this green carbon fiber looking vinyl for the inside I ordered from metro restyling looks neat. I bought it in block too incase I decided to do anything else here are some pictures.

Putting some stuff inside the case trying to get some ideas

Looking forward for the final result wink.gif
Seems to be an intresting build.

Just not too sure about the 120 rad in the back there. Never really like the look of them and i mean with that case you have plenty of room to put it somewhere else.

Ya I ment to say 140 since that is what fits in the back I think I'm going to go with 2 360s and one 480 on the bottom

I meant rads up there in general. I would personally only put one on there if I wouldn't have any place somewhere else.

Subbed!
Nice vinyl job! thumb.gif looks really good. nice touch with the res tops.
Cant wait to see your progress tongue.gif
And I kinda agree with @Kamtzy.. with all the other radiators, you wont see much difference with the extra 120/140.. A fan would look much better imo smile.gif

smile.gif It is totally up to you m8. If you already bought it, and you can make it line up and look good, sure.. go for it!
But my guess is that a lone fan would look better smile.gif

No matter what you go for, Im looking forward to see how it turns out!
Good luck thumb.gif
