Hello OCN, Welcome to my 2013 Year End Rebuild log.

I am making this build log a bit early, as I have begun to order all the bits and pieces for doing the build this week so that I will have the parts at home when I am done with this semester of school to go home and do it mid December.

This build will consist of changing cases from the 500r I currently have to the new Obsidian 750D, and a complete upgrade of my water cooling, including the addition of adding my 780 into the loop. With 2 new radiators, reservoir setup, and a nifty way of doing a drain port, all thanks to a user here at OCN who introduced me to the idea.

List of Parts for Build
EK FC Titan SE Waterblock (Or 780Ti block)
Alphacool XT45 360 Radiator
Alphacool UT60 240 Radiator
EK-DDC X-Res 140 CSQ
Fittings (Angle fittings, monsoon kit)
PrimoChill Advanced LRT WHITE 7/16 ID
EK-UNI-Holder-D5
Drain Port fittings
DEMCiflex Magnetic 240mm filter
EK X3 250 Reservoir tube

Stay tuned for future updates. Hopefully will have one tomorrow since radiators should be coming.
I always say this, but I am hoping this will be the last thing I do with this computer till at least next summer.

take the plug off the end of the mini valve, throw a fitting on it and a tube, twist the valve, tilt the case, and all the water gets drained.

I came here in hopes of someone still using the AMD Phenom processor in their build... I was sadly mistaken.

Update:







Really need a larger res tube. This little 140 is lame.


Fittings: 90 degree to go to top 360, 45 to come from bottom 240

MASSIVE UPDATE. LOTS OF PICTURES

Completely forgot I had this thread made, since I have the same one over at TPU, so here you go guys. I have some things coming Friday so I can finish it up. One of which is the NZXT Grid Hub to connect all the fans to one central area.



Mounting this was a bit harder than I was anticipating.




Really got to get a AX860i PSU at some point like Ive been planning for the last few months. The blue is just throwing it off completely.






Love how conveniently the 45 degree fittings and the one down below on the radiator perfectly line up. Nice clean short tube routes thumb.gif




Spray paint and thing of bits I ended up taking back.


getting ready to be stripped


The EK FC GTX780Ti block. Clean CSQ


Probably one of the better stock TIM applications Ive seen.


Close up of the GK110 GPU.


Painting the heads.


The flash makes it look not so black.


Precision cut.






Evga Black plate smile.gif


Had to modify it a little....


Again the 45 degree coming off the GPU lines up perfectly with the fitting just below on the radiator.


Anyways guys. Enjoy the picture. More coming Friday, that is assuming the stuff Im waiting for gets here.

Looks very nice. What made you not go for the bigger res?

Well the reservoir tube I want for this reservoir/pump combo is out of stock. I wanted to get the 250 which is like ~200mm tall compared to this 140mm. But doesn't look like any place I look has the 250, and wont for a while, so I settle with this for now. Once I find a 250 in stock somewhere, Ill get it and throw it on.
