Draining the loop. It served me well, but for now it goes in the corner with the other parts I'm not using anymore.


All the tubing is gone, the reservoir has been removed and I'm about to remove the motherboard, radiator, and fans.


Motherboard tray is now out the case, fans have been removed. Radiator is about to be removed.


CPU and the water block have been removed and the socket cover is back in place. Now to put the motherboard back in It's box.


The case is now completely empty, there's a lot of dust, dirt and finger prints, so before tomorrow I will give the case a wash down with warm soapy water.



That's as far as I will be going tonight, tomorrow the rebuild begins in a nice clean case.

So I did a little work tonight on the rebuild. I have 5 of my 16 fans and I'm still waiting on the other 11.

I plan on using a number of M3 and M4 stainless steel fasteners I picked up a while back to attach the fans, grills, dust covers and radiators, so pretty much anything I can use them on.

I will be setting the fans up in suck in from bottom exhaust from top setup.



The Cougar PWM fans look good when you put a grill on them. On the underside is a dust mesh to stop them from sucking mess into the case.

So here's the motherboard I'll be using, got it at a great price during the Ebay CTECH20 Sales, and surprisingly it came with a free pair of MSI Branded Siberia V2 Headphones, but I don't plan on using them.



Packaging is nice and neat, Clear panel lets you see the goodness that lies inside. I'm really happy with the motherboard.


All the additional extras that came along with the board including the I/O Cover.


Getting things ready on the tray, and removed some of the motherboard pegs that weren't needed.


Motherboard now on the tray with the I/O Cover and it looks so nice. I thinks its going to to work with my colour scheme.



I'm going to continue with this tomorrow due to prior engagements this evening, but I'm getting excited for the rest of this build.

So I started work on the rebuild again at about 8 this morning.

Just a couple of photos of the CPU and RAM I'll be using, and the CPU in the socket.

So this is the temporary cooler I will be using until the R9 390X releases with waterblocks. I've attached a Cougar fan on the front and have it as a Push-Pull at the moment.







I really like the look of the block with the Corsair AIO Cooler.


Once again I must say I really like the aesthetics of this motherboard.


Just a shot the ram, I like the heat spreader design.

Nice looking Mobo. I always liked MSI and they do perform very well. I went the other way round this time to Asus.

Great board going to be fun seeing this one get together. thumb.gif

So this is the XFX power supply I picked up at half price. Should be interesting to use, and if it comes up short in the power department I'll be looking at putting the power supply I removed from my previous build in, or for neatness sake a lower wattage full modular.

So everything is back in working order. Temperatures are about 26 Celsius idle and 40 - 45 Load. I plan on some overclocking In the future but will probably wait until the R9 390X release. I'll grab some screenshots of of CPU-Z and temps soon.


I not too happy about the cabling mess so I plan on getting some Velcro straps to tidy things up, but it also makes it easier to work with the cables, wouldn't exactly be happy with zip ties because I would just keep cutting them when I need to adjust a cable or remove or add something.


Cabling is a little untidy at the front but it will do for the time being, Might have to try and find an extender of some sort for the front power and reset switches. I don't like how I have to run the cables along the front in order to attach them. I Would prefer to come from behind and underneath.



So this is where the hiatus will begin I guess, Not much will change until I order the GPUs but I'm Still planning on getting 2, anything more I think would feel like a waste If I buy them so close to release date but In the future after some price drops I will probably get a third.
