OP UPDATED

Nice Side Window. Is it made of Acrylic/Plexiglass? Did you just go to a glass shop with your current side window and get them to copy it with the holes cut? Only reason I ask is I work for a glass shop that carries Plexi-Glass/Acrylic and never thought to do that.

Any chance you could take a few more pics of that side panel so I can see how you did it? primarily the notches so the side panel will lock into the case.

Hi guys,

I am picking up a corsair 600T SE after work tomorrow to upgrade my current rig to a water cooling setup. This will be my first attempt at water cooling and I am in need of some guidance. I currently have the following hardware installed in a HAFX but I'm displeased with the size of the case and overall looks.

Anyways, my goal here is to achieve a silent PC. Also, I am looking to upgrade my graphics card to a GTX580 around christmas and adding it to the loop as well. With that said, please advise me on which water cooling parts would I need to sustain a decent oc (currently at 4.5Ghz 1.352V with load temps of 71C max) while keeping the noise very low. I would be happy with cpu load temps within the 50C mark. Price wise, I'd like to budget $600cad tops for the water cooling parts.

My current plan is to install the phobya 200mm rad in the front of the case, while modding the top to fit a 360mm rad. As for what 360, I honestly have no idea as to which one fits the low fan speed while maintaining decent cooling configuration I'm looking for.

For the res, I'd like to use the ek 150ml multi option. Now which pump to pair that up with is what I'm needing guidance on.

Then comes fittings, ideally I would like compression fittings. As for what size, still undetermined. Tubing I'll go with primochill lrt.

Cpu block, xspc raystorm. If I've missed out on anything, please feel free to correct my blunders. Thanks for reading, I look forward to completing this build and sharing with the community. smile.gif

Current system:

cpu - i5 2500k @ 4.5Ghz 1.352 volts
motherboard - asus miv-e
video card - msi gtx570
ram - gskill 8gb 1866 cas9
hdd - intel 80gb ssd + hitachi deskstar 2tb
optical drive - pioneer dvr 212
psu - silverstone strider 850w gold

At the moment I have no experience with OC or Water cooling (but I'm sure plenty of people here will help you). but just wanted to note, wouldn't you be better off just throwing in another GTX 570 for now rather than upgrading to a 580? It'd be cheaper, and perform better (since you already have one). And then by the time you do want to bump up, the 580 will most definitely drop in price.

^I've thought of that as a possible route, but when I heard my friend's sli 560's on full load the fan noise was just too much for my liking. Therefore, I would rather water cool a single high end card over having two in sli. Thanks for the suggestion though smile.gif

Not nearly as awesome at building PCs as you guys (this is my 2nd ever build). But here is Nocturne, I finished him a few days ago:


Nocturne%20PC%20019.JPG

Nocturne%20PC%20024.JPG

Nocturne%20PC%20054.JPG

Nocturne%20PC%20051.JPG

- Anyway, it's a pretty plain build specs are:

-i5-2500 (I didn't get the K, because I don't plan to do any major OC, or maybe any OC on it at all).
-ASUS Sabertooth Mobo
-Corsair Vengeance 2x4 gb
-XFX AMD Radeon 6850
-WD Black 1 TB
-Corsair Gamer Series 700 Watt
-Lite-On Blu Ray Combo Drive Which I thought I got a great deal on it, turns out I needed to buy the updated software to watch any new movies, at that price I could have bought a BD burner =(



Anyway, could use some help on a few things from you more experienced builders:

1) You can obviously see that ugly power cable going to the top of the mobo, it's not long enough to go through the back to reach it. Any recommendations?
2) Aside from buying a modular PSU - what's the best way to hide all the additional power cables I didn't need/use, just put it to the back and zip tie?
3) From the top panel there is an actual USB cord in the case, I think it's for USB 3.0. But my mobo doesn't have the right connector for it...although there is a USB 3.0 header. Do I just leave this thing, or get some kind of adapter?
4) Last - I want to give this thing a cool Nocturne look, someone
recommended purple and blue lighting. I think I do eventually plan on getting a window for it, or mesh window. I also am thinking about doing some water cooling, not really cus I need it, but just cus it'll make it look cool with more color options. Right now the PSU itself has a built in LED fan with color options for red, white or blue. How do you guys think I should do the lighting/fans? blue LED fans all around with Purple LED kit, then get Purple Watercooling tubes? or just mix match? Not sure exactly how different color LEDs would end up looking.

Thx.

if i was you, i would turn the PSU around - fan to the bottom. this case is designed for PSU to be with fan down (there is a dust filter for it). now your PSU is sucking air from inside the case directly from GPU. and if you turn it around, cables will be closer to the motherboard tray and you will easily connect CPU power cable from behind the mobo. and you can also hide all the cables behind mobo. there is plenty of room for cables. also if i was you, i would remove top HDD cage and move the bottom one to the PSU. that's my opinion.
happy building smile.gif

Finished my build tonight, everything is up and running awesome. GPU comes in the mail on tuesday, stuck with onboard video until then. This case is awesome. Pics to come when GPU gets here.

Anyone have a suggestion on a filter for the top? Was thinking about getting crafty with some of the wife's panty hose, kinky I know... I might spring for some Demciflex filters sooner than later, they are a little pricy imo.

What software do you guys recommend getting for monitoring temps and doing a little overclocking?
