Corsair Obsidian 800D Build Log

Yes I just finished my HAF922 Build, seen here, and I was very happy with the build and it is currently running nice and cool and fast. This was my first water cool build in a case that I originally bought to be air cooled and had no thought about putting liquid into it.
Now it is time to work with a full tower case the Corsair Obsidian 800D. I was looking at the 800D or the TJ07 silverstone case. As you see the 800D won in my opinion and I am looking forward to putting this build together.

My plans are to, yes take most of my parts from my HAF922 build and place them into the 800D case. I will be replacing the RADS to the thicker versions and going with the 355 pumps instead of the 655 pump.

The main addition to this build is liquid cooling my GTX 295 GPU block. I am going to use the EK-FC295 GTX GPU Water block.

I am not going to do two loops as I do not want the extra tubing in the case. My loop will go as follows:

360RAD -> CPU-> 120RAD -> Motherboard blocks -> Res -> Dual 355 Pumps -> 240RAD -> GPU -> 360RAD

If I do two loops, I will have four tubes coming from the bottom along with two Res. thus making the case too crowded in my opinion. Now If I do this build and find out my temps are not as I would like, I can easily split the GPU apart and add a RES., but this will be looked at in the end of the build.

Here are the components basic components to this build. I will have all components in my hands the week of the 30th of December.

Components;
»Obsidian 800D
»CPU: Intel Core i7 940 OC'd to 4.0
»Motherboard: Evga X58
»EVGA GeForce GTX 295
»CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3x2GB)

Water cool parts;
»RAD - EK XT360, EK XT260 & XSPC RS120
»CPU Block - Alphacool H14 Yellowstone BRB
»Koolance Northbridge/Southbridge Water Block
»Black Feeser Mosfet Block
»EK-FC295 GTX GPU Water block
»EK-Multioption RES 250
»2 x Swiftech MCP355™ Water Pump
»XSPC Dual Acrylic Top

Here is a comparison pic of my HAF922 and my Obsidian 800D case. Yes it is comparing a mid tower case to a full tower case.





More to Come!!!!!

the case is new. It still has the plastic protective sheet on it in those pics. Yeah I still really like the HAF cases as well.

Are you saying 24"x24"x9" is a small case? I own one, believe me, it's massive. It dwarfs my previous case - CM690 - which is said to be large for a mid-T.

I think this is funny. We both have red themed HAFs, both bought them for air but ended up with water and both want to build an all out water tower. You went with the 880D and I'm planning on the TJ07. I just have to finish my HAF build first.

Anyway, I got all excited when I saw you'd started a new build. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

LOL nice. Yeah i have been following your recent liquid additions to your case and they are coming along very nicely.

It was a tough decision between the 800D and the TJ07. The things that put me in the direction of the 800D were that it was already black inside, It had better cable management and It already has the HDD case above so I can place a RAD below and not have to relocate the HDD's.
