Going to revive. I just ordered a GTX 980. Also looking to get the 16GB Ram and a SX-600G to top it off.

980 installed and tested. PC in shambles at the moment but gave a good performance boost. Just waiting for the waterblock and need to get the other hardware ordered.

I remember having the CM Elite 120 case. It was definitely a challenge with full size ATX case wires...ugh. What was even worse was watercooling. Now that I'm scaling back the size of my case I wish I still had it... Looking good! Pack that thing full!!!

Thanks guys. Knowing there is at least some stalkers is good motivation. At this point, I am committed to finish it.

Here's how it currently sits
20160116_151121 by

I had to remove the PSU bracket to slide it slightly out of the frame so I could remove the pump bracket to slide the pump out of the way of the GFX card. Obviously to do any work. I had to remove the rad and 660.

Because It is only a 430W PSU. I needed to power up the 800W I had lying around
A. I didn't have 2x 6pin
B. Per a PSU calculator, I'm right around 420W stock.

GPU block should be here Thurs per tracking. Since I've had time to ponder, I've been looking at doing hard tube like copper. The only problem is I would have to wait even longer to get the fittings since it doesn't seem to be an option at the hardware store from my reading in the pipe bending 101 thread. I think this would clean up some of the tubing I have now and give the build a nice accent.

I may try to get a push/pull again if I can get tubes cleaned up and there is enough between psu and rad. This is also provided I can fit the pump between the psu and the gpu.

As for being packed. I'm not sure it could be more than it is smile.gif
Final build should be at least close to:
4770K
980
16gb RAM
256GB SSD
600GB Raptor
MCP355 Pump
4" cylinder Res (may have to be removed)
280 Rad (2x140mm) w/ 2x140mm fans
600W SFX PSU

Also, I'm probably going to re add the tumor. It' wasn't the prettiest but did give me a few extra degrees while running the 660 and 4770k. The 980 is ~20W more power stock so it should have more of an effect now.

Thanks to @billbartuska. I got some copper and a plan.

Here is an idea of what it will look like. I figured if it was worth store security to stop me, It is worth showing smile.gif
20160121_184305 by Jesse James, on Flickr


Here is the block that came today
20160121_193702 by Jesse James, on Flickr


The only thing major left is the PSU. I'd still like to get the m.2 also but it isn't nearly as important. Off to disassemble

Thanks,
Outlaw

1515 - I finished putting the GTX660 stock cooler back on for the kids gpu update. And I finished putting the EK block on the 980. What I need to work on now is getting the chassis cut up a little bit. With not having the reservoir anymore, I need a way to drain/fill the loop. The res was the only access I had to a drain/fill port because the rad was littler end to end on the chassis.

I had finished cutting a the drain/fill port into the back of the case and another opening in the front of the case for wires to pass through. I was also able to get the rad and chassis repainted to clean up all the scratches.

I'm hoping to get started on reassembly but thinking of how I can better mount the rad.

First time working with copper of any sort.

Fitment check

First pipe installed

I don't like this pipe
20160125_010043 by Jesse James, on Flickr

The one coming up too high is because I didn't have any black 90s left. I think I am going to suck it up and use the 2 silver ones to get a cleaner run.

Down below the rad is where my only known leak is. It's a pain in the rear to get to though. I have to remove the rad to correct the 45 to a 90.

that 90° bent copper pipe appears to have a slight kink to it, no?
