NZXTInerTia's H630 5GHz Build Log!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Introduction!

Alright, finally getting back into the PC world after being pretty inactive for about the last year. After purchasing a XSPC Raystorm 750 EX360 kit, and upgrading to a FX6300 (and overclocking, dun dun dun) I learned that the NZXT Phantom case wasn't exactly doing the trick. This will be just a simple progress log to record all of the bits and pieces, both big and small, to be added to my main rig over the next few months!

Goals

I'll be upgrading my now aging EVGA GTX470's to a single EVGA GTX680 and perhaps adding a block to aid with cooling. After listening to two 470s for the past year at 100% fan, a water block on an updated GPU sounds endlessly nice. Not to mention looks great! I would also very much like to add a block to the mosfets, I know at 5GHz they're going to have a tendency to get pretty toasty. I also will be making a small home server, so a large WD Black HDD for games/software will be added and my multiple WD Green drives will be moved to that.

Original Rig

NZXT Phantom White
ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula
AMD FX6300 x6
G. Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz 8GB 2x2GB
EVGA GTX470 SLI
NZXT Hale90 850w
Sandisk 64GB SSD
XSPC Raystorm 750 EX360 with tubing/fittings




Stay tuned for updates!

Update!

My entire rig is in table mode until my case arrives on Wednesday, so until I can make some visible progress here are some pictures of what I've purchased and what I have prepared for the new rig.

Some attractive pictures of my board taken with my girlfriends Galaxy S4. I absolutely love these Monsoon fittings.





Primochill Flow Indicator with Monsoon fittings and blue LED light recycled from my pump/res.



Six Corsair SP120's on my XSPC EX360 Rad. I love these fans, especially with the white rings.



Brand new out of the box XSPC X20 750 Pump/Res because the first one I had (pictured in the Phantom) made a god awful noise so I RMA'd it. Although I've now disassembled my original one, and reassembled it and its silent, assuming a large air bubble. I also picked up a Bitspower 1/4 Ball valve for my drain loop, and a 1/4 liquid temperature sensor stop fitting.



Then finally my two 12" white cathodes. After having blue LED rope lights in my Phantom, I wanted to try these instead. I love how they look outside of the case, I can imagine how they'll look inside. I'll be snipping the PCI bracket mounted switch off, and soldering the connector directly to the Molex connector instead. I won't even need to turn them off, so I may as well reduce the amount of wiring.

CASE TIME!

Sorry for the lack of build pictures, after working all day I was quite anxious to get this thing together. Custom HDD mounting, drain loop, OC' pictures/benches, and acrylic covers to come. Stay tuned!
