Default Project: Aquasidian - Build Pics

I know I've posted this elsewhere, but thought you lot would like to see it on here:





Run down of main parts:

Asus Rampage II Extreme
Intel i7 920 D0
Asus Ati 5870
Corsair Dominator 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C8
Corsair Obsidian 800D
64Gb SSD + Westen Digital 1Tb

Watercooling:

Swiftech GTZ SE
EK 5870 full cover
XSPC RX360
Swiftech MCP655
EK 250 R2 Reservoir
Tygon 1/2" with Fesser Compresion fittings
Thermochill EC6 Blue Coolant

Then to finish it all there are some white cathodes, Scythe Kaze controler, Scythe Jyuni 1900 fans, Corsair Ram cooler.

The pictures show the stages I've gone through so far to the point I'm almost complete. I've changed a few of the parts from the origional list above, the cpu block, fans, pump configuration etc etc, but I'll let the pics explain:

Mounting the 5870 block:



Pump, Res and Rad mounting:







Motherboard and graphics fitted, all pipework in place:





Couple more pics to show how the pump is mounted and the pipe routed behind the motherboard wall. There is a good inch of space back there, so with that smll piece of the case bent it allows the pipe to not be squashed at all.







Finally filled up:



After replacing the pump top for the EK one. I decided I didn't like the pipe running behind the motherboard area, it was only really due to the pump inlet and outlet positions, which is fixed with the EK top:





Next stage complete. 24 / 8 and two 6 pin psu extention cables sleved and heatshrinked!









First boot:



Sorted the lighting out. Decided to ditch the 30cm cathodes as they definitely put out too much light. Instead I used all 4 of the 10cm ones, one mounted vertically behind the res, one at the bottom lower rear of the case mounted vertically next to the expansion slot screws, and the other two fixed across the case to the fans on the radiator...







After replacing all the fans, the cpu block and a few other items:



First main casualty is the case window, managed to knock the rear case side which was propped up into the clear panel leaving a 15cm scratch:



So the last bits to finish off are to get the window replaced, to paint the dvd drive rear casings black to fit in, and to sort out a support for the gfx card as it's bending quite a lot with the weight of water block.

Sorry for the huge post, but thought you lot might be interested :) I'll put up the final pictures when I complete the buid, hopefully this weekend.

Nick

Looks really nice, but why did you pick the old style RAM cooler?

Also, does that 655 pump just mount on the bottom cage like that without any mods? You have inspired me, I am going to extend my loop now to cover my CPU too.

Certainly does mate, just poked the bolts through the existing holes in the cage side.

I didn't realise there was a new style one, but just seen it and wish I had done now. Looks much better with the dual fans over the tripple design.

I suppose it's only another £20 so might change that at some point.

I still need to get a pair of the Lian Li dvd drive covers and modify them to fit yet. So a couple of last touches to finish off still.
