LP's Downsize and Upgrade
« on: May 06, 2014, 01:25:39 PM »
The itch has been scratched. Parts have been ordered. Its happening!





For now, I leave you with some teasing. Full part list will follow soon, but I will be reusing most of my current stuff. No 6 core, quad GPU action here sadly!

Here's to hoping! If it's DOA, I WILL FIND YOU.

For now, the massive pile of thermal crap has been polished off. Next comes some adequate cooling.

Looks amazing. 8 + 6 pins? What kind of monster you are having, LPfan4ever? :)

Watercooling it? Well, silence is golden ;) How she run now...?

I ragequit when I tried shoving my AX360 into the H440, fucking thing would not fit ANYWHERE. I gave up and returned it. Due to the Cosmos not having a window I skipped my original plan of using purple dye in the distilled to make up for the lack of purple tubing. ANYWAYS, parts list is as follows:

Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II  >:(
CPU: 3770k @ 4.5GHz
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth Z77
RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu Black Series (2x 8GB)
PSU: Kingwin Lazer 1000W (4 years old and still goin strong)
GPU: Asus R9 290X <- Boner material right there.
Sound Card: Auzentech Forte
Optical Drive: Hah, this isn't 1998.

Storage:
2x Corsair Force GS 240GB in RAID0
Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 120GB for Photoshop and Lightroom
2x Hitachi 5k3000 2TB
Seagate LP 2TB (Backup)

Water stuff:
CPU Block: EK Supreme HF Full Nickel
GPU Block: XSPC Razor R9 290/290X with matching backplate
Radiator: XSPC AX360 Black (3x 1850RPM Gentle Typhoons)
Pump: MCP355 w/ EK res top (Before they stuck the stupid circles all over everything)
Fittings: Bitspower matte black 7/16ID 5/8OD
Tubing: XSPC high-flex tube - white


I'll get some full rig pictures soon. For now this will have to do (with a bit of review material teasing  ;) ):

No kidding. I gave up on it since I completely failed at doing everything I had wanted to. Next build will be proper. This one was crap and was thrown together just well enough to work. Didn't help that the PSU and my pump died in the meantime.

Pfft. You buy me a new rig and see how fast it gets put together, and how many pictures you get. This old rig is hitting 2.5 years old for the mobo/CPU/RAM. Hard to care  :P
