Guess it's time I finally create a build log, I'm in vacation so I've got some free time lol.
First build log so I'll be picking the format of some others around here, thanks to them (whoever they are)

Little side note on why did I started a new rig. I purchased two EVGA 780 Ti Kingpin Edition because I wanted it, kinda in an impulse. I figured that my actual cooling will not suffice to have fun with it so, new rig!

Let's begin with all the Computer parts:

The cooling parts:

Next, some pictures! biggrin.gif

#1 The EVGA 780 Ti Kingpin Edition pictures
#3 MB+CPU+RAM and block assembly.
#4 What the MB and graphic card look like.
#5 The Caselabs SMA8!
#6 Component in the case and missing goods list.
#7 Missing watercooling components arrival!
#8 PSU clearance and radiators assembly check. +fitting pictures.
#9 Tubing in progress...
#10 D5 cover kit, EVGA Supernova 1300G2 and sleeved cable kit, sleeving.
#11 Pictures of (almost) final state.
#12 Benchmarks results here, here and here(work in progress)
#13 Final pictures.

At first I was going for the Phanteks Enthoo Primo in white, that wasn't available so I had the time to think over, after seeing some amazing stuff done with Caselabs, I decided to contact them to know the shipping to France (a little more than 130€ by Fedex). And I goes with it, worth it.

Some details first, so the chassis is black, as well as the different inside accessories.
I have those:
  • PSU Support Mount - Magnum - Black
  • 120.4 Radiator Side Mount - Single Wide Magnum Cases - Black x2
  • USB 3.0 I/O 3.5'' bay - Silverstone - CaseL​abs W​hite
  • 120.2 Flex-Bay Radiator Mount (6-bay) - Black

That's a huge box!

Assembly done. Wasn't as hard as some youtube video you might see (or have seen).

Then I put the components I already had in the case, done some quick pics.
Warning: Images! (Click to show)






Size comparison of SMA8 to my Fractal, no wonder the Rampage IV look tiny in it lachen.gif


Then I ordered the black front bezel for the Aquaero 6 XT, because it look better, right?


I've been trying to put some heatsink on the area known to heat up and yet uncovered by the WB, with spare heatsink and thermal pad stickers I had, will gonna replace that.



So far, what I am missing as of today? all of this: redface.gif

From my watercooling shop:
Mayhem X1 Transparent 1 liter x4 - In Stock
eLoop B12-PS - 120*120*25mm, <21.2dB, 62CFM, 400-1500RPM x7 - In Stock
Temperature Probe HighFlow Double Thread 1/4 "Male / Female - Black / Nickel - In Stock
GPU heatsinks 15x15mm (Set of 10) - In Stock
Thermal pad Ultra High Performance ADHESIVE 5W/mk 15 * 15 * 0.5mm - In Stock
Temperature Probe 80cm - Black sleeve - In Stock
Koolance quick connect - G1 / 4 "Male - High Flow FEMALE - Black - QD3-FG4-BK x6 - In Stock
Koolance quick connect hose 10/13mm High Flow MALE - Black - QD3-M10X13-BK x6 - Out of Stock
Radiator NexXxoS UT60 Full Cuivre 480 x2 - In Stock
Radiator NexXxoS UT60 Full Cuivre 240 - In Stock
EK-PSC Adapter 90° G1/4 Black x10 - In Stock
EK-CSQ Fittings 10mm - Black x10 - In Stock

Yeah, because of one item (and maybe only few of them, because I ordered 6 and it was showing in stock at the time I ordered) they are not shipping, most shop in France work this way.
They are not taking you money until the good is shipped and not ship until everything is in stock (doesn't work that way for business btw).

From EVGA:
EVGA SuperNOVA 1300 G2 Power Supply - Out of Stock
G2/P2 White Power Supply Cable Set (Individually Sleeved) - Not released (to be release next week on EVGA US store)

Oh, and next week I should receive my EVBot I got on Ebay this week, from @Jabba1977 wheee.gif
