Hi there, as many can see not been registered on overclock forums for long. This is my first build log on the site.<br><br>
Reason behind why 900D case choice. I’ve been on case hunt since it bought my cm stalker case in 2004 that stayed with me for 3 major hardware upgrades. Looked at Li-lian cases D8000 or PC70, cases from Caselabs and ofc the 800D, all possible fulltower cases but none of them felt quite right. All had some weird gimmick that made them undesirable. Then at start of 2013 i read some rumors about a massive case from Corsair and at CES and i saw the press photos of the 900D + the intervju Linus tech made with George. I was HOOKED. I just had to get one <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br>
enough with backstory for this build. The specs,<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1491368/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1491368" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1491368/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 232px"></a><br>

Will eventually get some good pictures to post up. Soon as I get the case.<br>
Hope you guys stay tuned when the assembly begins.

Something unexpected happened this Monday. Got a notification from 1 of the 3 shops i preordered the 900D from. They all of a sudden had 10 in stock. Couldn't believe it at first, thought they mixed up the case with something else. Then i saw the shipment note and weight said 22kg. <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><br>
So this wednesday It arrived.<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511204/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511204" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511204/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511205/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511205" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511205/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><br>
I knew it was a massive case but did not expect this SIZE. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>
First thing after getting it out of the box and remove some plastic. Remove a driver cage to see if my ides about pump position was even possible and it was <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511217/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511217" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511217/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511219/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511219" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511219/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511214/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511214" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511214/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511215/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1511215" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1511215/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><br>

And Why stop there.

More to come. Need to flush all 3 radiators, and install fans. Still waiting also on a vital part to secure the two reservoirs. But should have it in a couple of days.<br><br>
As you also might have noticed the EK fittings looks abit off. They got a warmer crome finish and they just feel misplaced so ordered some bitspower Silver Shining Rotary 90-Degree IG1/4" Extender to replace it.

Yeah forgot to take photos was so eager to start building the loops. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
Inspiration for this Black and white theme was from Singularity Computers Client Build 5 'Nighthawk'

That was a somewhat quick, but expected progression from DH14- h100- Ek waterclock. When I first read the components and saw initial pictures, I was wondering why you wouldn't block the cpu from the start. Looking good though. And looking forward to the rest of the build. I'm contemplating a case choice for my newest buld now. It's between this 900D, a XSPC H1, and a Caselabs M8.

Well switching between the 3 coolers didn't happen over night <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"> or even a month. Parts for this build been ordered since 900D announcement back in jan <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br>
And having parts in boxes for over 4 months was nothing I could do and it's bugging me that I didn't wait for 780s. But now I know what's next to upgrade <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
As many said before its a true joy building in 900D . So I truly recommend it <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">

I guess time for a update. Been on vacation so not much have happend with the build, Also not much you can do when waiting on parts <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"> other then start making 3mm lightning cables and installing abit of hardware. Hopefully things will start to take shape in the next 2 weeks, or at least finish 1 of 2 loops <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>

im not a fan of white coolant builds, so in my head im gonna imagine it as a different color if thats okay with you <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>
other than the white coolant(imo) you are doing a top notch for this build and doing the 900d great justice. if there was a *** smiley i would spam it in the remainder of this post.

Was ment to be EK Blood RED in the start. But there was so many 900D builds going for red/black theme. So i lost interest in that color. <img alt="sad-smiley-002.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/sad-smiley-002.gif">

im doing a blood red 900d build atm...awkward D: lol<br><br>
yeah i understand wanting to differ from the standard black/red themes lol, but as i have never done one(always do blue) i figured i might try it out <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif"><br><br>
anyways, this build looks amazing even if it isnt my favorite choice of color, the only thing that matters is YOU are happy with it <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif">
