Hello,

ive see all the cool build in this board here, and ill get verry hyped to create my own. I have been planning this for some time.

At first i decide to use be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900. but with time i change my opinion and choose the Lian Li PC-O11 WGX .

I think I do not have to write novels here .. it will take a bit until it's done. Some parts are not delivered yet. Others have not even ordered.

planned hardware:


Mainparts:

Case: Lian Li PC-O11 WGX
Processor: Intel i7 8700K
Mainboard: Asus ROG MAXIMUS X Formula
Harddrive: Samsung 960 Evo 500GB
GPU: EVGA 1080 TI SC Black Edition
RAM: GSkill Trident Z RGB 16 GB 3600 CL16
PSU: be quiet! DARK POWER PRO 11 650 watts

Cooling:

FAN: Noiseblocker NB-eLoop Fan B12-PS
CPU Block: aqua computer cuplex kryos NEXT
GPU Block: EK-FC1080 GTX Ti - Nickel
Fittings: Alphacool HT 12mm HardTube
Reservoir : 2x Watercool HEATKILLER® Tube 100
Pump: 2x D5 (Alphacool and Aquacomputer)
Radiator: 2x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 360mm

BlingBling:
FAN Cover: PHANTEKS Halos 120mm
RGB-Stripe: 2 Meter RGB-Stripe
Display: aqua computer VISION Glow
Cable: black, carbongray from cablemod
Some parts already arived

And now some pics:











today ive started to assemble the pump with the reservoir. for two pumps ive make it all two times but dont take pictures twotimes


i have some wrap left from my last car project and decided to use this for the pumps. its 3M brushed metall. Fits pretty well to the front of the case.









after that. i mounted the fans and the fancover on the radiators...

for more style i wrapped a drinking saw with the 3M brushed metall und cut it in to small pieces for a screwcover on the side ..







So. That's the current status.
Now waiting for some parts like the backplate and other stuff.

have fun. and a littlesorry for my english.

fits verry well. theres no grinding or so...

noiseblocker wrote in another forum. bevor you use it ,you should let run the fan vertically at full speed for about 3-4 hours .. that can prevent grinding

and a big update too..

finally I bought a graphics card .. the prices beyond the 700 euro mark I did not want to pay .. so it took a while until I found a card.

the moment where I remove the film, I save myself for a special day. **cheers**

Nice work so far. I'm interested to see how you implement the dual Heatkiller reservoirs

finally more hardware has arrived. The most important part. The motherboard. The Asus ROG MAXIMUS X FORMULA and the water cooler (EK). Now only the cables are missing.

For the first test, I have quickly stick all parts together. the computer starts and I have already installed windows.

written enough. now some impressions..

yesterday I came a step ahead. I've been cutting the mid-plate. Do not really know how many times I've got them in and out again.

Here is a pic from the stripped case..


unfinished midplate...




little fittingtest.. I have put in the reservoir/pumps and radiatorsin the case for the pic.. It's getting tight. But should everything fit

How's that led (for the res im guessing) - i just bought one like it the other day.... literally just an LED on two wires to a molex connector. When i saw it I couldn't believe i just paid AU$15 for it or whatever it costs here. Could easily put that together yourself in 5 minutes haha.

First of all, good job sleeving those cables, they look nice!

Are you aware that the HEATKILLER Reservoirs with pump mounts do not come with free ports in the bottom? I wonder where you want to put those LEDs!
To illuminate the tubes, we equipped one of the aluminum struts with a groove where you can place LED strips to light up the res. We offer them both in RGB or in white. The strips are installed like this:

thanks jacob

i know these led parts. but this little led was on sale.. and i bought it. i dont know why. in the meantime im think i will not do it with the led. because the phanteks fancover will glow enogh from the back.

and here we go.. some new pics und steps..

again a bit further .. I delid the 8700k today and provided with liquidmetal .. somehow I have made only one smartphone pic .. the tension was probably a little too large for me
rolleyes.gif


I also finished the pump holder as good as i could. I have to get even shorter screws and washers...

The construction is my final solution. iam not a professional modder ... but the pumps are fixed enogh...

furthermore, the cables from cablemod arrived me.. the difference between black and carbon gray was much larger in the configurator. i am searching for my pinout tool all the whole day.. but i could find..
I would attached some silver cablecombs. But the longer I think about it, the more I like it without the combs .. let's see ..

oh yeah ... there was a small moment of shock with the cables at once, when the graphics card no longer shows nothing on the screen and the fans turned on fullspeed .. took about a minute until I noticed that a cable was not really tight in it. May not actually happen .. and here some new photos

nobody should fall asleep here .. go on with a few pictures ..

in a small function test of the RGB Stuff, I found that one FAN cover doesnt work correctly .. a few LEDs light up in a different color .. Therefore, I put the cover to a place where you can not see it.



the power button, reset and HDD cable as well the cable from the CPU block, ive covered with black sleeve.





I'm not a professional .. I'm still learning







little function test for cpu block

Great choice for reservoirs, I also went with Dual WaterCool tube, but 200 versions (Non-D5).

Just be careful how you mount eloops, They don't perform that great in pull.

The 120 wouldn't have any issues, the 140 fan could possible have issues since there not standard size for 140.

a nice job for being first time at sleeving. One suggestion (It's just my preference) you could use one heatshrink for both wires, Which would create a bit of a cleaner look. One thing I noticed is the one heatshrink does look a bit loose and part of the LED cathode is exposed on the other one.

Also don't the Small res have built in LED slots? I know the 200 version does.

yeah. i'm like the edgy design
smile.gif


because of the fans. i'll use the eloops b-12 PS on booth radiators in push configuration.
the rog version from the Lian Li PC-O11 has 3 spaces for fans on the midplate the "normal"-version doesnt have this feature. thats why iam use the rog-version.

the plan is to run the 3 fans on the midplate with more rpm than the one on the radiators.. with increasing temperature, the rpmspeed increases exponentially

iam not a silent fetishist

but the system should be relatively quiet

thanks for hint.

but i only pin out the cable from the connector. because i havent some terimals to recrimp it .

in the meantime I decided against using this leds.

the smaller version from this reservoir has the built in LED slots too.

some pics from the finished version from the holder from the reservoir

As I wrote, I'm not a modder. its looks good enough for me













In addition.. yesterday I installed the radiator for the GPU

In between, I played some pubg rounds. :-D



next step is to install the waterblocks for cpu and gpu and build the hardtubes
