I am starting work on a custom watercooling set up on a customers build this weekend. It will be done in steps, with new fans going in and setting up the BIoS first. My customer is prepared to go all out on the watercooling with triple rads, motherboard, cpu and gpu blocks. Its been a while since I have done a build with h2o this complex, but it should be a lot of fun. Besides, I love modding when I don't have to spend all of the dough! I decided to name the project Overseer after Thermaltakes name for it. The theme is going to be red and black with probably some carbon fiber thrown in somewhere. Here is a list of the PC as it is being brought to me... Thermaltake Overseer Case AMD FX 9370/CoolerMaster V8 ASUS Sabertooth 990FX GSkill Rip Jaws 2133mhz 16GB Samsung 840 EVO 250GB EVGA 780gtx Seagate Barracuda 2TB Antec 1300w Platinum Apparently the cpu is one hot beast and is throttling as well as having memory issues. I plan to address the settings and getting it stable as well as adding 4x BitFenix Spectre Pro Red 200mm fans and two matching 120mm fans. This will fill all of the fans slots and hopefully cool the processor down while we tape out the watercooling system. As for watercooling, he wants 3x200mm rads, a 120mm rad, cpu block, gpu block and motherboard blocks. I like XSPC so we will source parts from them minus the rads which will be Phobyas. That is a lot to stuff in this case, but hopefully it can be done. This weekend I will post pics of the system we are starting with and progress that will also take place. I plan to load the settings we use, should anybody out there want to clock similar hardware.
here's a little back ground on me. Ive been building systems for 18 years started with PII and early amd (still have my first K2 cpu on shelf) systems. All have been custom for myself and others. Typically these days i build gaming and media production systems. i've built a few hackintoshes as well as some hackbooks. mods typically been paint and windows along with some overclocking and the usuals. All that being said...hello everyone. Now without further time wasting...the first of my current builds. It will be my daily driver for video and audio edits at home. This project will be a hodgepodge of new and old parts. for the record i just completed this and am reposting from my other log The List: SUPERMICRO MBD-X7DAL-E-O w/modded pcie slot (purchased, modded and test fitted) Dual E5410 cpu's possible 5472 upgrade later or bsel oc bsel mod soon (installed) 16gb ram (installed) GTX 470 video card w/ DD gtx470 waterblock (done an waiting) CoolerMaster gladiator 600 Case painted white outside.
