Mission Statement;

I will be putting the rig together first, testing for defects, thermal and overclocking potential and benching on air. I will then lap, delid and test temps and new overclocking potential with each step. I will follow by a disassembly and reinstall with the liquid cooling components, testing for leaks, overclocking gains on water, stability and benching before play! Any dissatisfaction with the build will be rectified.

It will be a cool journey to take together!

It will serve as an all in one component purchase and how to guide for newer builders that want to dabble in liquid cooling. We'll all learn together!

The 1300W is going to be overkill, your system is going to be pushing 700w. (Non-overclocked without pump)
Eh, you've probably already ordered it.

Looking forward to the build though!

Register Computer Hardware:

Before you start assembly of the build, make sure you register all your purchased hardware.

In Canada at least, some companies will allow straight forward online registration, either by first creating an account or by way of a simple Serial registration. In my specific situation this was the case with Seagate, ASUS, EVGA and LG.

Some companies needed to be contacted through online chat such as Intel to register a product.

While Samsung required an initial online chat and a follow up phone call in order to register the SSD.

With some companies, registration is not required and in case of a product defect, you can proceed to their web site and fill out an RMA request.

It is always wise to register your products in case of defect. Your frustration will be diminished since your information is already logged with the manufacturer and you can proceed directly to an RMA. Another advantage in registering your product might also result in a warranty extension.

Here are the Boxed Pics:

Tommorow, will come the Unboxing Pics!

Note, I'm still missing the waterblocks and the backplates for the GPUs and the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra (stuck at the Canadian border) and one Silverstone Air Penetrator fan. They only had 3 fans in stock when I ordered from Direct Canada.
