[Build Log] Corsair 750D ---- RIVBE ---- Full Custom Water cooled build ---- Final Name : ???

post #1 of 140
Thread Starter 
This is a performance gaming build in a 750D. I want extreme (stable)overclocking and ULTRA game settings at high FPS.

I have been in the I.T. field for 5 years and work with massive server farms, mainframes and advanced data center enterprise solutions all day. So I am not a noob when it comes to computers. BUT, every single thing that ive ever worked with has been air cooled thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif. Now I get to work on my own water cooled project! thumb.gif This will be my first liquid cooled build and am very excited about the journey!

I just received my Corsair 750D in the mail today and am starting to plan out the build.

I already have 1 EVGA GTX 760 4 gb card that I was thinking of running in sli, but as my research has found, they are quite difficult to water block.

I am planning out a total budget of around $5,000.00 (US) over the course of several months, every week or 2 I will be adding another piece to the puzzle. WARNING - This is not going to be a FAST build, I am going to take my time. Especially since the "Devils Canyon" chips are dropping soon.
I am open to any suggestions due to my lack of experience with Liquid cooled projects.

Edit 1 : Here is a list of the parts I will be ordering. With what I have listed here that leaves me with around $1,000.00 US for the water cooling endeavor!!

YES! I am nuts hannibalsmiley.png But I a have a decent job, my Mrs. has a decent job and everyone has to have a hobby right?? Mine, just like yours, happens to be a very expensive hobby.

On that note, I decided to scrap the EVGA 760 SLI idea and go all out with a GTX 780 ti SLI water cooled setup, so there is $1400+ out of the budget already. LOL

Holy fans Batman!

I bought 7 SP120 quiet's so I can do push/pull for the 240 front rad and pull for the 360 top rad. Then 1 AF140 quiet (white LED) for the rear exhaust.

Checking out how the white rings look. It seems like everyone who does a ROG build with a 750D uses the red ones










Next week I will be ordering the motherboard!! biggrin.gif I am torn between the Asus RBE or the Formula. I do not have my processor yet so I have options with my socket... My max budget for the Mobo is $400.
