[Build Log] Project Reaper - Nzxt H440 4.7ghz 3930k Titan

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
My brother Alex wanted an enthusiast computer so here it is biggrin.gif

Build Goal:
the goal for this build is mainly for making gaming more overpower than it already is. It was first put on Alienware aurora r2 case so I had to take it all out from that to build on a better looking case. Although some components here is 1-2 years old it still is better. I wanted it to be cheaper but since water cooling is too pricey, oh well. I wanted the red/black h440 case but it was already sold a week before it first came out. Getting that would be another month so my brother choose the white one instead. It actually looks nice and neat somehow.

Case:
NZXT h440 White/black case

Main Components:
Asus rampage IV gene
Intel i7-3930k Processor
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 2133mhz
Corsair Ax860i
Asus Gtx Titan 6gb
Samsung Evo 750gb

Air Cooling:
Corsair SP120 PWM fan

Water Cooling:
EK GeForce 780 GTX Ti VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal
EK Gtx titan Backplate
EK Supremacy Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Clear
EK D5 X-RES Top 140 w/ D5 Vario Pump
Alphacool st30 240mm Radiator
Alphacool xt45 360mm Radiator
Primochill Clear Rigid Tubing
Primochill 10x Rigid Fittings
Mayhem Red Pastel

Led and Cables:
Nzxt 2m white LED
Bitfenix 24,8 and 6 Pin cable extension (RED)

I was bored waiting for the rest of the components so I started working out some of it while waiting.
I started cleaning the alienware and taking out the Mobo,Titan and the PSU. NO PICTURE BECAUSE IT WAS TOO DUSTY! i was coughing every minute cleaning it out.
We had the corsair tx850 at first but then i started hearing coil whine so my brother bought a new one. trust me you dont want to hear the coil whine. it was basically a dying power supply lol

Cleaned out and Dust out with my wife's facial brush biggrin.gif





More pictures and build log later thumb.gif

How could I miss that!

Subbed!

Im thinking about it but right now i dont have the proper equipment to cut the side panel but yeah it would totally look cool. Thanks for the subbs! More pics coming

Changing the plate for lga2011 Ek sockets. looks clean. Backplate soo shinny!










Mayhem Pastel Red is prolly the best coolant out there. pricey but worth every penny imho.
Already flushed it out with distilled three times. everything goooddddd biggrin.gif
The bottom part that hides the PSU is the best thing ever. it hides cables too. a complete modder can do this good but premade are always a soso.

I wanted to do a very similar setup in my H440, but I couldn't figure out where to place the res and pump. I am going to get the same pump/res combo, but probably going to try the 30mm rad on the front to fit fans. Do you think a 45 with two fans be better than a 30 with three fans?

But that rigid tubing looks really nice, might have to switch to that. This is essentially going to be how I model my own build, great inspiration.

I agree.
However im still trying to decide whether to go with the Black/Red or White/Black case.....
Keep up the great work. Cant wait for the finished product.
