New Computer Build

New postby berserkguard on 06 Sep 2015, 06:52

Hey everyone!

By now you've probably all heard my complain about my current desktop... it's showing signs of hardware failure, and time between crashes and other symptoms is increasing with each passing day.

I ordered parts for my new computer last week, and all the watercooling parts I need are scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. It'll be my second build with watercooling (and fourth build total), so I'm really stoked!

Anyone else here interested in PC building? I know Badboy is if I'm not mistaken...

Here's my hardware (ordered from http://www.newegg.com):
  • Thermaltake Core V71 Extreme Full Tower Chassis
  • GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

  • Corsair HX750 80+ Gold Certified Modular Power Supply

Here are my watercooling parts (ordered from http://www.performance-pcs.com):
  • Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - Nvidia Geforce GTX 980 M02 - with Backplate
  • Alphacool Repack - Laing DDC - 5.25 Bay Station Reservoir

  • EK-Supremacy EVO CPU Water Block (Original CSQ) - Copper/Acetal
  • EK-Ekoolant EVO UV Blue (concentrate 100mL)
  • Mayhems Biocide Extreme
  • Mayhems Silver Coil 99.999 Pure Fine Silver
  • PrimoChill Base High Purity Deionized Water - 32oz - UV Electric Blue
  • Primochill Clear PMMA Plug with Secure Hold - 2x 5mm UV LED

Soon! Just hooked up all the tubing, putting clamps on and giving it a leak test. Hopefully by tomorrow night I'll be playing on that! :D

Friend convinced me to put Windows 10 on it... I'm still on Windows 7 so it'll be quite a change :geek:

Decided on getting UV Purple cathodes to put around the case to make the coolant glowww :D

Let me know what you guys think, suggestions welcome!

Just finished putting in all the UV lights I received in the mail... looks even more epic! All the tubes glow... and I also discovered that Monster glows solid yellow under UV light :shock: Something to do with the mineral composition, but still sounds unnatural to me :D

Haven't been on RS much because I've been setting up my new PC and checking out other games (friends all started playing WoW on a private server). I'll be on a lot this weekend though! 8-)

It's definitely more fun with friends. Otherwise playing it just feels tedious, unlike rs... in rs there's a lot you can do solo :D

Finished hooking up all the lighting and stuff in my PC, I'll post some pics soon!
