First time build. Watercooling planned. Help and advice needed. - Page 2

post #11 of 32
That´s exactly the reason why I didn´t go for the H440 in the end, I wanted to use tube reses and they should be visible.

I briefly thought about the H630 , which is a great case and to fit a window by myself.
But in the end, I settled for the Enthoo Prime: http://phanteks.com/Enthoo-Primo.html

You also might consider a Corsair 800D

Wait for the EVGA SuperNova G2 850 watts its better then everything Corsair sells and it will have cables you can buy for it as well

If you want to spend more on something thats worse you can go Corsair just think that would be stupid

Thanks for the information.

But after checking it, I decided to stay with the Corsair. It appears to be the only practical way for me to deal with the white sleeved cables matter. I realize it's not the smartest choice. But It will have to do.

I'll go with the 860 watt platinum. And I'll keep in mind that in case of a sli of gtx780ti, I might have to avoid overvolting the cards.

I can't seem to find any other cases that really satisfy me. Apart from some ITX cases that I don't feel confident building in. There is also Caselabs that caught my attention. But the prices + tax + shipping is just way too high for my wallet.

I'll go for the H440 and either deal with the hidden reservoir... or remove the HDD tray and mod a bigger side panel window.

Just a quick question before I place the order:
Is every component I chose compatible with each other? Just making sure I didn't miss anything. smilingsmiley.gif

Here is the list (it's the same as the initial one)

They are all compatible.
You want the 1866 RAM ?

I don't know! Will 1600 limit me when I'll be overclocking?
If it doesn't matter, then I can go with 1600. It costs 69 euro. (89 euro for the 1866) So that would let me save 20 euros.

I have zero knowledge about overcloking. I know tho that once my build is finished and watercooled, I certainly am going to fiddle with that. smilingsmiley.gif

So I need your opinion on this. Which one do I take?
post #17 of 32
Out of the box the 1600 has the better timings with 9 9 9 24, the 1866 runs on 9 10 9 27.

Also 1600 is said to be the sweetspot for Haswell

RAM OC is the last part you will be looking into and it´s more difficult than CPU or GPU OC.
Also it will net you the lowest performance gain, if even any. We are talking 0,5-2 FPS here.

Ofc you can go a bit higher with the 1866 but if the timings get worse the gain will be even less or in the end it will be worse than the 1600 RAM.

So regarding 1600 vs 1866 I´m not convinced if it is worth the money, maybe you can think about going with 2133 if you really want the faster RAM. BUt as I said, the gain will be minimal

RAM always runs at stock clock at the beginning which most likely will be 1333MHZ, doesn´t matter if the RAM is labled 1600 or 2100.

In the Bios you have so called XMP profiles which then run the RAM at the speed and timings the profile is set to.

Thanks a lot for the comprehensive answer!

It will be the 1600 then.

I got to go right now. Will be back in an hour or so. And I'll make my order.

This guy makes cables for any PSU and he does a way better job then Corsair did with their cables

http://www.overclock.net/u/135653/lutro0

You can have any color/colors you like so you can have 100% custom cables

Buy a Cooler Master V850 and have lutro0 make some cables for it that wont suck like the Corsair ones do

I took a look at the waterblocks:



I love the design of the plexi ones from EK with the circle things!

Quick question: Do you guys know if this backplate: http://www.docmicro.com/pieces/Plaque-Arriere-Dissipateur-Memoire-pour-GeForce-GTX-770-GTX-780-Ti-GTX-TITAN-NOIR_11576.html
is the same as the one listed in the EK cooling configurator?
http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/upload/pictures/EK-BP-TitanSE-1_800.jpg
Just to be sure it's compatible with the 780ti I'm ordering.

For the CPU waterblock I chose the normal one (without the nickel plating) because I plan on using an opaque coolant. So that part would be hidden by the coolant anyway.

I wonder which components they used in the video from the Modzoo I linked in this thread.
Maybe you guys know:
- What pump and res (Is it a res-combo thingy?)
- what radiators
- How did they connect the pump to the front rad?
