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

Since I started with the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition back in January, picture of those beasts first!
(yeah, it's been that long and the build isn't finished yet)

After testing of each on my Fractal rig, I put on the block I had received.

Beasts ready for water! (Click to show)

Preliminary testing on AIR, with some OC.

I'll be using spoiler for images like that, because wall of images is a pain.

I hate waiting for components, really, so I started to assemble things when I got my CPU, RAM and motherboard, didn't even made proper pics before I did. frown.gif
Here the norprene tubing and some EK boxes

MB+RAM+CPU and blocks mounting. One month and half back, when I thought the other pieces of watercooling and the PSU would be available fast...

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.

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

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

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
