[Project] .:Bubbleless I7:.

post #1 of 139
Thread Starter 


Bubbleless I7, my dads new computer... His old 478 P4 is on its way out so time for a new system :]




  • Core I7 920
  • Gigabyte X58 Extreme ASUS Rampage II Extreme
  • G.Skill 12gb RAM (DDR3@1600mhz)
  • 3x Nvidia XFX GTX280
  • 2x 1Tb Samsung Spinpoint F1 in RAID0
  • 1x 500gb Samsung Spinpoint F1 as Redudancy
  • 2x TFC Exhanger 360
  • TFC Exhanger 240
  • mCubed T-balancer Control System
  • Silverstone TJ-07


I have ordered off:
www.scan.co.uk -Very cheap hardware and a excellent help if in their store.
www.chilledpc.co.uk -Very good watercooling stockist in the UK, well packaged items aswell.
www.kustompcs.co.uk -Has a few rare items in stock and a good selection of RadGrillz.
www.watercoolinguk.co.uk -Has hosing and other items at good prices.
www.overclockers.co.uk -Although The Sent The Order And Billed Me Wrong Has Some Nice DDR3 i7 RAM in stock.

My dad hates computers that make noise so for this reason I chose watercooling, you can turn the fans down and have the system near silent when needed this will be controlled via the T-balancer control system made by m-cubed. My dad doesn't like computers that glow or light up so for this reason we have the none side-window version of the TJ-07 and will not be using and bay reservoirs just T-lines.

My parts have been ordered and are arriving on the 27/11/2008, but my camera is not here till the 18th so the unboxing/package photos will be done on my phone.

10.30-27/11/2008 Chilled PC Package Arrives

So it seems that 37" 1080p influenced you into getting Triple Sli GTX280s...BADASS!!!! Congrats cant wait to see the outcome. I just pray you have a good 5.1 surround to company that visual splendor. Once you play WarHead at 1080p with 4xAA you have reached the pinnacle of gaming for now. Enjoy!

The Overclockers UK package has come and also picked up the HDD mounts from scan and some castor wheels and jigsaw blades from b+q and the bolts for them from Chorley Nuts + Bolts.

Overclockers UK RAM: Well I thaught I had ordered 6gb but 12 turned up, two differant packages at the same time... So I check my order history and turns out it was ordered twice .
