Hey everyone. I am starting to upgrade/water cool my rig so considering I will basically be taking the whole thing apart and putting it back together I thought I'd throw together my first ever build log. I just ordered all the needed parts so I'm just gonna throw a list of components up and then start posting pictures and details along the way. Enjoy and please post any questions/comments you might have.
Cooler Master HAF X case
i5 2500K CPU
ASUS Maximus Extreme IV (Rev.3) motherboard
4x4gb Corsair Vengeance Low Profile
XFX Radeon HD 6970
Rosewill Bronze 1000W PSU
64gb Crucial M4 SSD
120gb OCZ Agility 3 SSD
500gb Samsung Spinpoint HD
2tb Samsung Ecogreen HD
XSPC Reservoir/Pump Combo
XSPC Rasa CPU Water Block
XSPC 240mm Radiator
Black Ice GTS Gen 2 Stealth 140mm Highest Performance Radiator
EK-FC6970V2 Full Cover GPU Water Block (w/corresponding back plate)
Danger Den 1/2'' UV Red Tubing
I'm switching over from a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO cooler so I will also be comparing the temps between the two. Air Cooled my i5 2500K OC'd to 4ghz idled around 29 degrees celsius and running prime 95 topped out around 76.
I had the XSPC items from a previous build but all the other water cooling components I ordered this morning. Depending on the flow rate I might upgrade the res/pump but I'm gonna wait to see how it works out before I jump the gun on that.
