[BUILD COMPLETE] Corsair 350D "Red Dragon" Rigid Acrylic Tubing

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hello, everyone. I'm fairly new to overclock.net and thought I'd share the build I've just completed. This is my first full computer build so I'm open to any suggestions/ criticisms. P.S. Sorry in Advance for the bad picture quality and terrible lighting. I'm working on getting a place set up for some better photos. Alright, now the components:

Case: Corsair 350D
Power Supply: Corsair AX 860i
Motherboard: Asus Z87 LGA 1150 Maximus Gene VI Micro ATX Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k
RAM: 32 GB Corsair 2133 MHZ
GPU: EVGA GTX 780 Ti Superclocked
Storage: 2 x Samsung EVO 500 GB SSD in Raid 0
Storage: 1 x WD Black 4TB HDD
Fans: 4 x Corsair 120mm SP High Performance and 1 x Corsair 120mm AF Quiet Edition

Now for the watercooling components:

Reservoir: Bitspower Multi-Z 150 x 60 mm Tube Res
Pump: EK D5 Pump
CPU Block: EK CSQ Supremacy Clean
GPU Block: EK Acetal Full Cover Waterblock w/ Backplate
Radiators: 2 x Alphacool 30mm Slim Radiators
Fittings: All fittings are Bitspower's Matte Black Fittings
Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Red

I really wanted a tube reservoir in this build as I love the way they look. However, including this into my build forced me to sacrifice on some performance and also may look a bit crammed. Opinions? Anyways, I'll post the pictures below. Also, if you guys are interested, I will post some benchmarks tomorrow to give you guys a good idea of how the system is running overclocked. All in all, I'm very happy with this as its my first complete PC build.

UPDATE: I took some (hopefully) better pictures. The last ones were washed out and blurry.

Can you post links to these items? I'm doing an m-ATX x99 water cooled build with acrylic as well. How did you set up the res. and the pump? I can't see the pump!
What site would you recommend me to buy the liquid cooling components from?

All the water-cooling components listed above are from performance-pcs.com and frozencpu.com. I highly recommend these sites they have nearly everything you'll need. I mounted the reservoir onto the front 240 rad using bitspower's rad mount (http://www.bitspower.com.tw/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6_19&products_id=2495). Also, if you take a look at the second photo, you will see piping coming out of the reservoir into a black square kind of hidden at the back of the case. That black square is the pump.thumb.gif

EDIT: I forgot to mention that all the non-water-cooling components were bought from newegg.com and amazon.com. Hope I helped smile.gif
