Isolating the pictures of my build (Warning, Contains Corsair products and large images)



So I thought I'd make a new thread again since I'm cluttering up the general Computer thread. If my judgement is wrong on this, I suppose the mods could just move it again. But I'd rather keep it here so that those that don't want to see it don't have to. Anyhow, you can see my progress before this post by going to that thread—there aren't any pictures that really show the build process over there though.

Complimentary wallpaper 1
Complimentary wallpaper 2

So anyhow, I'll start by going through the stuff I posted on OCN the other day. Shows waterblock assembly and a bit of progress:

Spoiler Spoiler


Something I'm a bit worried about: this PSU has no top fan, only an 80mm fan towards the center. I guess it's supposed to take airflow from the rest of the chassis, but this case has the PSU area separated from everything else. I guess I'll have to see how it plays out.


This board has all 90° plugs. Really nice—ugly cabling now, but I'll get the sleeving eventually.


Hotswap bays are super easy to use.


Only two down at the bottom though. So don't plan on having more than 2 3.5" drives


Anyhow, moving on to the cooler removal+waterblock attachment





Have the block and the GPU here.




Keeping the various removed screws contained and labeled—might have to reattach it to RMA the GPU.


All screws removed


These plugs are a pain to remove. A massive pain.


Current mess


Got my q-tips and alcohol ready


Clean GPU


Old thermal pads. Do I *really* need to take these off? They're practically brand new.


Oh well. I did.


Put a bit too much TIM on, I'll put the block on, take it off, wipe the block surface, and then call it good. Also got the new pads on.


Block on. 1/2 complete


Testing for a few ms to see if it still is alive. Yes, it is still alive. I didn't wait for it to get past the bios splash screen.


Also took the chance to test the other GPU while I still had the stock cooler on it.


Here we go again—sun is setting, I might have to find some artificial light.


Depadded and cleaned.


New thermal pads.


Don't have pads of the right size for this, so I just put two of them on.


Better way to do this: lower GPU onto block, not the other way round.


As I mentioned: put the block on, take it off. Wipe off the block. Put it back on again.


GPU 2/2 complete.


Goodbye, stock coolers.


Progress picture 1






Cable situation in back. Will manage later.


Potato quality closeup of the SSD cage


90° USB3 header. Very nice.


Now I only need 90° f-panel connectors. Would be bad if I was going 4-way SLi on air this time. Fortunately, I'm not.


Case interior.

It's at this point that I realize that I forgot to order the CPU block (herp). So I ordered that along with an AX360, as it turns out I can actually put a 360 rad in front of this case. I'll return the AX240 when it gets here.


And now to the new stuff. I haven't even submitted the post to OCN yet. I'm talking to you, ToTheSun:

Spoiler Spoiler




Pump+res potential layout. Still could change, but I think this is how it's going to be.


GPUs, now with 100% more backplate


GPUs, now with 200% more backplate


I/O board covers and thick backplates don't play well together. I'm ditching the board I/O cover, since that area will be hidden by a rad anyhow.


GPUs are now 300% more difficult to remove from the board.


Cleaning out the rads for install.

I swear, the next set of pictures will actually be exclusive. And not just for 20 minutes. For all time.

Rezal, what are some voltages I can increase to get a bit more stability, besides DRAM voltage?

I got a few errors in Memtest.

I don't know much about computers so I'll just comment on the photos.
You've got a really good eye, I'll give you that, the shots of the inside of your rig show you definitely know how to use lighting and the artificial light positioning on your GPU further down make for a really sleek photo! The apparent 'Potato-quality' shots of the inside of your rig also show good positioning and composition in your shots although in one or two I do wonder if that was intentional or whether you were just reaching around something else :P

Still, well done! Nice photos and hopefully there'll be a nice PC to play nice games with nice Viper (lol) at the end of it all :thumbsup:
