Watercooled mATX Build - 4770k - GTX 780 - Expanded H220 - Silverstone PS07

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Whats up guys. Not gonna go into detail, but had a Fractal Arc Midi R2 with an asrock extreme 4 z77, i5 3570k, and all my other current hardware. But, being a college student, I wanted something easier to move back and forth to home. SO, the switch to mATX occurs. I'll leave the parts list, and let the pics do the rest of the talking.

Parts:
Asus Maximus VI Gene
I7-4770k
Asus Direct CUII GTX 780
Samsung EVO 250gb
Seagate 1TB HDD
16gb Gskill Sniper 1866 RAM
Seasonic 860w Platinum PSU
Sycthe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans

Swiftech H220 Expanded with:
-Extra Alphacool 120mm XT45 radiator
-EK GPU block
Primochill Advanced LRT tubing

And for pics:


















Overall, very happy with everything. Glad I made the switch to water cool everything. And even though my i7 is a bit of an OC turd, it all works quite well. Let me know what you guys think.

That side by side pic with the old fractal made it all worth it too

Thanks man. I run fans at 60%, pump at 50%. Bf4 full ultra for a few hours, CPU will get to about 60-65 at 4.2ghz (1.18) and Gpu to around 50-53 with a 1215mhz effective boost clock (200 over stock). And its pretty damn quiet too which I love

Temps are a little high, but that's to be expected with only a 120mm + 240mm for the CPU and GPU. Much better than air though especially when considering the size of the case!

Why not 200mm rad instead of 120mm x2? The case is tj08 right?

Exactly. I can lower the temps by about 10C by letting the fans go at 100%, but lower noise levels are honestly priority to me. So this to me is a good medium. I won't OC any further and the temps are still much better. Before, With a hyper 212 on CPU, i couldnt go past 4ghz without being in the 80-90c range. And the gpu couldnt overclock at all and would get to 78-79 on stock clocks; the case is just too small to effectively escape as much heat as this equipment was making

This is the same Internal layout as the TJ-08 but has a different front panel, is a bit cheaper, and uses two 120mm fans rather than the 180mm fan. The 200mm rad would have been more surface, but the lack of fan options was an instant turnoff to me. Like I said above, noise levels are probably the biggest consideration for me and I wanted to ensure I could get good performing, and quiet fans
