New member, longtime lurker, first time watercooling build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello to all ,

With the nudging of some other members who have been around awhile I was pushed into signing up. For the a longest I have ghosted the forums and site and checked out peoples rigs and though wow I couldn't possibly do all that without seriously screwing something up major. But I figured I have done enough run of the mill, lack luster builds and have cheated myself out of what could be a great gaming rig. So all that said I have started getting the parts for my first "Real" build.

My Parts that have arrived so far are in the rig creator but Ill list for the lazy

I7-4930K
Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
Evga GTX 780Ti Kingpin Edition
Corsair Dominator 16GB ram
Samsung EVO 840 500G SSD (ive been told i could have done better lol)
Topower 1200w power supply
Corsair 900D

So that is the current items sitting there staring at me.. the next phase is the water cooling and then ill begin. I plan on doing an EK water cooling setup which I'll list out in an actual build thread since I guess this should just be an intro thread.

Anyway thats just a bit about why I am here and what I am about to do.. Look forward to getting advice and talking with avid builders.

Awesome to see a new member post with a sweet build in the making! Those are some really epic parts! Totally jealous thumb.gif Will keep an eye out for your build log. Always super neat to follow peoples first experiences with water cooling. Best of luck with the rig. Not like the statement pulls as much weight as DizZz up there (moderators....) but welcome! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the welcome Jbgonzo, glad to see someone else interested to see how this goes as much as me.... I am still in that state of "This could all go very badly". But I have read lots, watched videos, read some more. It is time to pull the trigger and just do it.
