I decided it was time for another super tower build since Corsair launched their massive Obsidian 1000D case. My previous build took place in an equally large Thermaltake The Tower 900 which has been great.

For those of you who didn't catch my last build, I'll link it here: https://www.overclock.net/forum/show....php?t=1619878

This time around I'm planning to implement a dual system with a minimum of 3 full loops. I won't finish the complete project until Intel next gen of HEDT CPUs comes out, so, for now, I'll be keeping my current internal hardware with no secondary system.

The plan is to run my i7 6800K and EVGA 1080FTW on a mini ITX board as the secondary system. My primary will likely consist of Intel's next-gen X399 (not to be confused with AMD) and a GTX Titan T (whatever it will be called assuming one launches this year).

For now here's a rundown of what's going to get done and the parts being used:

Tower:
-Corsair Obsidian 1000D Super tower

CPU/GPU/RAM
-Corsair AX760 PSU
-Asus ROG Strix X99 motherboard
-Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 3000mhz 8GB RAM x4 OC to 3100mhz
-i7 6800K OC to 4.35GHz
-EVGA 1080 FTW

Cooling:
-Alphacool Nexxos 480mm UT 60 radiator x2
-Corsair ML120 fan x18
-Corsair ML140 fan x3
-EKWB D5 PWM pump x2
-EKWB 1080 FTW Nickel backplate
-EKWB 1080 FTW Nickel/Plexi water block
-EKWB Asus nickel monoblock

Fittings/Tubing:
-XSPC G1/4 Chrome Rotary
-XSPC G1/4 Chrome 90 rotary;
-XSPC G1/4 Chrome Ball valve
-XSPC G1/4 Chrome T fitting
-EKWB 16mm HDC Nickel Fittings
-Mayhems Pastel Green coolant
-Mayhems Pastel White coolant
-Alphacool Eisbecher D5 250mm x2
-Bitspower 16mm PTEG
-Primochill 3/8-1/2 soft tubing (for the back plumbing)
-EKWB G1/4 Chrome plug x2
-EKWB Pass-through fittings nickel x4
-EKWB 90 deg fittings in nickel
-10,000mm of Thermaltake V Tubular 16mm PTEG (You can never have too much tubing)

Cables/Misc
-Corsair Green PSU individually sleeved cables
-Cable Mod custom extensions
-Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
-Samsung 960 EVO 500GB M.2 SSD (boot drive)
-Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD
-Cable Mod 60cm UV + RGB Led strip x2
-Cable Mod custom PCIE x8, ATX, EPS, SATA power and Molex cables
-Cable Mod Aluminum screws in green
-Cable Mod SATA cable in green
-Aquacomputer Aquero
-Aquacomputer Splitty 9 x2


As for the peripherals here's what my 'office' has:
-Uplift Desk with Bamboo top (72"*30")
-Uplift Desk side take with Bamboo top (48"*30")
-Corsair K95 Platinum Cherry MX Brown
-Razor Orbweaver Chroma stealth
-Logitech G503
-Corsair M600 dual sided mouse pad
-Amazon dual monitor mount
-Ben Q mouse bungee

Future additions
-AS Rock X99 mini ITX motherboard
-Intel i9 9900K CPU
-Asus ROG Z390 Designaire motherboard
-Acer Predator 21:9 200hz HRD10 monitor
-32GB DDR5 Ram (assuming it's out)
-Samsung 970 Pro 1TB
-EKWB full nickel/plexi block for the CPU and GPU
-Nvidia 2080ti
-Corsair AX1600 PSU

Pictures of the build will be added as I get the new parts in next week!

My case, fans, radiators and some misc parts arrive Wednesday. I'll post an update once these get in and I start the build. Cable Mod has not shipped my stuff yet therefore I can't finish the build until those arrive.

This is going to be an interesting project since I'm completely unbuilding one super tower and putting parts into the other.

I also ordered the following items for this build:

-Cable Mod custom PCIE x8, ATX, EPS, SATA power and Molex cables
-Cable Mod Aluminum screws in green
-Cable Mod SATA car in green
-EKWB Pass through fittings nickel x4
-EKWB 90 deg fittings in nickel
-10,000mm of Thermaltake V Tubular 16mm PTEG (You can never have too much tubing)
-Primochill LC soft tubing

I have a ton of spare parts from my other builds so don't be surprised if the parts list changes frequently as I fine tune things.

My tower, fans, radiators, coolant, and tubing arrived today. I realized the top radiator/fan mount natively supports 140mm fans so I ordered some Corsair ML140's to replace the ML120's. The next thing I ordered was some Aquacomputer Splitty 9's to accommodate the large number of fans I'll be running in this case.

Here are some pictures of what's to come. As you can see the tower is equally massive like my Thermaltake.

TTS 900 has been fully disassembled, all water blocks and radiators are now clean. There's some light fatigue on my CPU monoblock but nothing to worry about. I've been running it for a year and a few months now so I don't expect it to live forever. Radiators, fans, motherboard and GPU will go in tonight. I'll do some tubing runs tomorrow and hopefully get it to a working state.

Here's what I'm waiting on still:

-All cable mod items
-Aquacomputer Splitty 9's
-Corsair 140mm ML fans

Some pictures of today's progress. I repurposed my old mousepad as a workmat.

Made progress today, I'm finalizing the loops and waiting on parts still. Unfortunately there's no way to connect all of my fans until tomorrow, cable management is going to be fun.

Tubing will be hard in the front and soft in the back.

Both loops were filled today and texted. I had a leak from the roatary fitting going to my CPU loops drain valve. After I fixed the issue and filled both loops I ran a few tests.

My 140mm ML fans haven't arrived yet (Amazon sucks on occasion). PWM hubs are still arriving today. I'll post some pictures later

I got everything running and ordered a few things. I'm not 100% happy with a few of the tubing runs so I'll be changing them once I get my cables next week.

More parts were ordered because what build doesn't need fancy stuff?

-Aquacomputer Aquero XT6
-Corsair RGB LED strips


Note in some of the pictures a GPU line (white coolant) is not full towards my rad. These pictures were taken while I was in the process of filling the loops.

I'll post another update when I get the other parts.

I like this case. It's the first one ever that looks good to me and would allow me the kind of cooling I want internally, without having to make sacrifices due to case dimensions.

Is there a particular reason your case airflow is the complete opposite of what most people use?

With how my tower is situated I didn't want the exhaust air (which will be hotter if the rads are my intake) blowing towards me. The intakes are all cool air since inside doesn't get hot whatsoever. My temps dropped by an average Delta of 13°C under heavy loads so there's no need to change it current. Once I add my second system I'll flip the front ones to be my intake since I won't really have a choice at that point.

Corsair made some design compromises compared to other towers I've built.

-The pump mounting area is very small and forced me to stagger the two D5's
-3.5" drive bay is non-removable, but I plan on modding my case and making a smaller enclosure there
-front radiator thickness is limited to 60mm if you want a push/pull due to the drive bays

Other than these things I've been happy with the case. Once I finalize the current design I'm going to start planning how my second system is going to run. I want 4 loops if possible inside the case, 3 at a minimum. My GPU will be getting replaced within a month anyway so that will cue some other upgrades as well.

I've never been able to feel the exhaust air temp when sitting at my desk -- it's always blowing away from me. And those compromises are nothing compared to most other cases. I only use 60mm max thickness rads as I don't like the 80mm ones. The staggered mounts wouldn't bother me, as I'd most likely mount the pump-res combos to the rad fans anyway.

If I was building in this case, I'd have the front and top be cold air intakes for the rads and the rear be exhausting the warmed air. I'd be using monoblocks so there wouldn't be any consequences for having the interior being a bit warmer than it otherwise could be.
