[Build Log] Project Frostworks (Phanteks Enthoo Primo)

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
Hi ladies & gentlemen,

I am taking my first steps into the realm of water cooling which has been prompted after seeing the vast amount of b-e-a-utiful machines on here. I am jumping in at the deep end and using acrylic tubing which I really hope I can master as I have seen many posts of people finding it difficult going through over 10ft of tubing... I have been buying parts since December and have pretty much got everything I need now (After many returns of faulty goods and being messed about by retailers...) so lets take a look biggrin.gif



PC Components:

CPU: i5 3570K
Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65
GPU: EVGA GTX 660 FTW SLI
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile (2x4GB)
HDD: Samsung 830 256GB, Seagate Barracuda (3x2TB)
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Primo
PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W

P.S All the PC Components I have used for nearly a year and due to financial constraints I could not upgrade.

Water Cooling Components:

CPU Block: EK-Supremacy - Acetal
GPU Blocks: EK-VGA Supremacy - Acetal
Pump: Alphacool VPP655
Radiators: Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 420, Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 280

That cable stitching looks nice. I really need to give it another try. I tried once and it was an utter failure. Did you use a guide or tutorial when you did yours?

I looked at a guide but though it seemed to complicated so as my mum is a dress maker, she showed me another way of doing it which i modified slightly. I sort of made a video guide when i was doing it so will upload it and post it here.

Awesome, thanks. I watched Frank's video guide and had some trouble first go around and haven't tried again since. Maybe with the combination of your video and a few others I can figure it out this time.

Nice. I like the looks of yours.

Looking forward to the EK-HD tubing and fittings. I'm debating between that and the primochill solution with their ghost fittings. Most builds I've seen use the latter. So it will be nice to see how it turns out with the EK products.

I should hopefully be giving it a bash tomorrow. I only have 2 metres of tubing so can't afford to balls it up, I have made a jig to help with that which I will post pics of. If I master it I will more than likely be making a video on pipe bending also.

Here's a sneak peek:

My first ever go at pipe bending. Could be better but I know where I went wrong and am happy with the outcome so far.
