[✓] Case: Silverstone SG05
[✓] Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus VI Impact
[✓] CPU: Haswell i7 4770K
[✓] Ram: 8GB
[✓] GPU: GTX 780ti
[✓] SSD: Crucial 120gb M.2 NGFF
[✓] HDD: Western Digital Black 750gb 2.5" 7200rpm

Objective: I've always wanted a PC that fit a certain criteria of being compact, portable, and powerful. Due to life such as school, career, lady friends, and an expensive automotive hobby, I simply procrastinated. I've brought this up to friends several times and the answer was always get a laptop...

LOL! I just finished (well kinda) my Silverstone TJ08-E build (I'll post the build log on this one soon) And I wanted to go even further...

I was originally going to exclusively use air with this build, but after water cooling my Silverstone TJ08-E, I'm hyped to do the same with this!

I decided to go with the Asus Z87i-Deluxe that shares a lot of similarities with the P8Z77-I Deluxe with an i7 4770k. As far as the GPU is concerned I've been following the progress of the GTX 780. Things can change over the course of the build. Regardless what I put into this I know the cooling system will fit, at least that's the plan

Hehe the first thing I did was google translate and saw "ROG ITX". I have nothing but time, Im really looking forward to this board, my main focus will be the water cooling gear, ESP since Haswell hasn't hit yet. Mine as well prep for it right? Haha

Case Prep:

Time to sleeve and prep the case wiring while attempting to stage the Swiftech Micro Rev reservoir




Look at these naked wires...



Much much better...



Staging the reservoir. It's definitely gonna be much higher then that since it will interfere with the Ram and daughter board of the Asus ITX. I'm currently churning the think tank on what I can use to mount the res higher. Any thoughts?

Maybe you could try mounting it to the rail/body thing on top of it, like some people mounted hdds with bent vented pcie covers.

Well, it should since the only difference between the Titan's PCB and the 780's PCB is the RAM modules in the back

I hate to nitpick, but maybe next time you sleeve front panel connectors you could take the sleeving and heat shrink all the way to connector...

Like so.
