RBX for 775 + New Parts!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just started on my new build
I wanted some feedback, let me know what you think!


main specs:
ECS cheap ass motherboard.
Xeon 3075 2.66 ghz 1333mhz 4mb l2 cache.
OCZ PC6400 DDR2 800MHz 1gbX2

Thinking about throwing it in my Termaltake XaserIII

Pics so far:
Danger Den RBX - New Hardware, lapped, and ready for a 775 intel. Woo!
However, I still do need a backplate. And the pictures do not do justice for the copper block


Motherboard - I wish it was up and running already

All I need now is a pump (I really want to get my hands on an old Danger Den D5), Radiator, and a new hard drive.
I will also be getting a new graphics card (want to get everything running first)

More pics / update coming as soon as I get it together and in the case.

Thats the first RBX I've seen in a while, looks great...I use triple nipple blocks to......

Do you "Y" your 2 outs back before the res? Or use a dual in res? I usually use a dual in res...We love pic's, keep them coming...

I was originally going to Y the hose, but I personally don't like the look of a big Y connector in front of my motherboard. So a new res. seems inevitable.
I will be posting more pics with thumbnails soon. I have never kept a log of a build so forgive me if I am a little unorganized with my posts.
Thanks for the replies!

I like a dual in res better, I think it should give a little better flow that way...I used one like this for a while..Dual-In Res..Cheap and it held up pretty well...I use "Plumbers Goop" on HDPE components, you can get a tube of it at almost any hardware store for 4 or 5 bux, its kind of like a real thick contact adhesive...If you use silicone on the barbs don't use any that has acetic acid in it, it can crack out HDPE after a while...

I'm terrible about taking pic's for a build log..Just take what you want to, I wouldn't sweat it...Its all good...

Looks good, but watch those o-rings on the RBX barbs...it looks like they are slightly over-tightened and deforming. It doesn't take much more pressure than that and an o-ring will slip out and leak. Danger Den's new Fatboy barbs along with D-Tek, some EKs, and XSPC barbs all have O-ring retainers to prevent that problem. A good chamfer on the block will also hold them in place. Anyhow, maybe not a problem but it looks close there.

Omg, I forgot about the O rings
Just replaced / adjusted them
I will still go with those DD barbs if these give me any trouble

You can roll that o-ring back about two threads and wrap the top 1/2 of your threads on the barb with teflon tape, I usually use two layers, wrap it tight, go all the way to the barbs shoulder..Then roll your o-ring back up to the shoulder, that will help to keep the ring from deforming as bad...

I usually just take them off and use RTV sealant on the threads, but on plexi I don't like to use it...
