[Build Log] Project Prodigy - Watercooled Prodigy with Acrylic Tubing

post #1 of 11

Project Prodigy



Hey guys im relatively new to Overclock.net and this will be my first ever build log. I plan on watercooling inside the Bitfenix Prodigy in white, as well as doing some mods to go with it. I plan on putting a window on the side opposite of the graphics card, which is not really a mod but i will have to mod the power button into another location (If you have any ideas on where i should put it, please let me know!) I also plan on making a HDD/SSD mod mount inside the case which will most likely go up against the motherboard tray.
For the Specs of the Computer :

Mobo - Asus H87-I Plus
CPU - Intel core i5 4670k
GPU - Windforce GTX 760 or Asus 770 (Still deciding if I will watercool the gpu)
RAM - 8gb Kingston HyperX Beast @ 1866 MHz
PSU - Silverstone Strider Series 550w Fully modular
Case - Bitfenix Prodigy (Obviously)
Storage - 120gb Samsung 840 Evo series, and Western Digital Blue 1TB

For the specs of the watercooling

Radiator - One (Maybe two) XSPC RX240
Pump - EK X-Res D5 Pump Combo
Fittings - Bitspower 90 degree coupling fittings and EK regular fittings
Tubing - EK-HD 12mm OD Acrylic Tubing
Fans - Corsair SP 120
CPU Block - XSPC Raystorm


All the tubing in this build will be acrylic, and i am trying to do all of the bends using fittings, but I might have some bends straight in the acrylic. The Tubing, Standard Fittings, and the Radiator mounts for the pump are going to be here late Monday so I will try to get some pictures up on Tuesday. Any suggestions or advice are appreciated! biggrin.gif

Here are some renders of it in Google Sketchup. Still trying to figure out how to do the tubing but that's next! Any advice or comments appreciated. I did not put in the graphics card due to it blocking most of the components

UPDATE!!! The standard fittings, the tubing, the tubing kit, and the pump mounts have all come in today!

I also finished mounting the pump to the radiator. The holes on my mounts did not line up, so i had to make a minor mod and add some extra holes. I may have to mount it in the front of the case and put the radiator on the top due to room issues.



Sorry for some of the pics being blurry!

UPDATE!!!!!

Last night i installed the pump while mounted to the radiator. Its a tight fit, but i'll find a way to do it. I also installed one very short run of tubing, and will do a lot more tubing on wednesday when the angle fittings arrive! Sorry for some of the quotes being blurry
