[Build Log] All Watercooled Thermaltake TOWER 900 E-ATX Full Tower build, Dual 1080ti, Skylake 6700k, Z170 G1 Motherboard +more

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have recently in the past few months acquired a few things to get my build up and going and i have went through 2 cases so far as this build has taken shape and each time it grows and have to get a larger case. My first was in a Thermaltake x71 and second was in the v71, now im awaiting the arrival of my new Thermaltake 900 Tower smile.gif this case should fit all of my needs.
I have already had to buy and rma countless things as i did not like the way they either looked or the way the fit into the builds, so now this is the last attempt at getting this thing done but i promise that this is going to be an epic build once finished which should not take long, i have already gotten my two Nvidia Geforce 1080ti's and I have preordered the EKWB waterblocks to go with them, having to RMA the current titan x ones i purchased as they were not as i had envisioned them. I am also using dual Monsoon res/pump combo with the Premium Hardline fittings with lock collars. I will post some pictures of the last two that i have done, the first was completed but the second one i stopped around the time that i found out that the collars on the fittings were acrylic instead of being PETG which were prone to cracking, also i am currently having to order new radiators and decide witch ones as well as new pumps seeing as the first two had to go back because i was running two Alphacool vpp755 and the white washer came off. This has been an awesome learning proccess also and i will have this done hopefully soon, but i will keep informed and post some pictures soon.

Just got the case in and wow is all I can say this thing is massive as you can see.
I'll follow up with some of the things I did to the other two cases and then a log of this one as I do it.

Oh yeah and I'm also waiting on a magnified headset 10x 15x 25x so I can make sure I fixed some pins in my motherboard socket, I have already put it in and ran it and there seems to be no issue but I still want to go back in and take a closer look at it.
Second row from the bottom and second from the left, it's straight it seems other than maybe the tip is slightly turned but still making contact.

I am a computer systems analyst and do some consulting also. I have had a few different jobs in my life though that give me skills in all sorts of trades. They come in handy when doing things like this biggrin.gif
