I'd like to thank Crucial for being kind enough to sponsor this project build with their memory modules. Thanks guys!
Special thanks also go to Bitspower for their lovely fittings
Hi guys and gals I doubt that ) I'm new here but I'd like to share my project log with you lot. I enjoy viewing everyone elses and getting ideas for a build and I hope you enjoy viewing mine.
I've been running my PC out of a case for a while now as I've been planning and saving to run it as a fully watercooled system (bar some parts). Now I've got most of the parts and I have an idea what is needed I can finally start on it. I decided that I'll be using a Silverstone TJ07B-W case to house my components. It's a great case that is just built/designed for watercooling in mind and it's not too in your face so to say.
So hopefully by the end of the project I'll have transformed the below...
...into one lean, mean watercooled machine
Below are the full specs of the build:
Silverstone Temjin TJ07B-W
ASUS Maximus Formula II
Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2
BFG GeForce GTX280
Samsung Spinpoint T Series HDD's
Akasa Freedom Power 750W PSU
MCubed T-Balancer bigNG
Swiftech Apogee GTZ
EK-150 and 100 Res
EK-FC280 GTX Acetal
EK-FC280 GTX RAM Backplate
OCZ XTC Memory Cooler
Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM Fans
7/16" XSPC Clear Tubing
Laing DDC 18W Pumps
XSPC DDC Clear Pump Top
I'm going to run this as a dual loop so I'll have it arranged like this:
Loop 1: -> EK150 -> DDC -> PA120.2 -> GTZ -> NBMAX ->
Loop 2: -> EK100 -> DDC -> PA120.3 -> EK-FC280 ->
Going to have all those fans hooked to a TBan and configured for silence.
The case has already arrived just waiting on a few tools to start modding with.
I got some rad stands made for me by a nice chap on another forum. I saw them in his build and really liked the look of them, only thing is he didn't have the diagrams/plans for his ones so I remade some in Sketchup.
I made sure it all lines up with the side grill. Had to rely on the model as I didn't have the case when making it.
Here's the semi-finished product, still got to drill, tap and paint it. I'm pretty sure it'll line up just fine
More pictures and updates to come. I'm sleeving a few fans and PSU cables. It takes ages but the end result is worth it
