So after much procrastination I finally decided it was time I upgraded my case and given my slightly spec'd up system over recent months/years the system needed a case it deserves. After 14/15 years of faithful service with numerous builds in it I thought it was time to retire my trusty CoolerMaster Stacker ATC-01 full tower case. While doing this build I thought it would also be a good time to wet my whistle in the water cooling world and it has been a eye opener so this build log will be both about putting things into this case and a my observations as a first time water cooler so that people in a similar position may learn from my mistakes. The system that will be going into this case is as follows: Intel I7-5820K Gigabyte GA-X99-SLI (Socket 2011-3) motherboard 4 x 4GB TeamGroup Elite 2400Mhz Ram (Quad channel kit) Inno3D RTX 2080 Twin x2 OC 1 x Samsung Evo 850 500GB (SSD) 1 x Samsung 830 Desktop 128GB (SSD) 2 x 4TB HGST 3.5" SATA drives Coolermaster Real Power M1000 PSU Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic Razer Edition Now for the water cooling components (All EK Water Blocks - unless otherwise stated): 1 x EK-Velocity RGB Intel CPU Water Block Nickel + Plexi 1 x EK-CoolStream SE 360 (Slim triple) Radiator 1 x EK-XRES 140 Revo RGB PWM (inc pump) 3 x EK-Vardar EVO 120mm RGB Fan 6 x EK-ACF Compression Fitting 10/16mm - Black Nickel 1 x EK-Cryofuel Solid Electric Purple 1 litre Premix fluid 1 x Filling Bottle 1 x EK-Duraclear Tubing 16/10 - Clear 3M 1 x XPSC Heavy Duty Host Cutter 1 x EK-ATX Bridging Plug (24 pin) So I thought while I was at it and to try and give this a clean look I would also go with some cable mod cable extensions for both the psu and my sata cables 1 x CableMod ModMesh Cable Extension Kit 6 x CableMod Right Angle SATA 3 Cable I will be showing the build process in a series of photos and my learnings as part of this build as going from air cooling to water cooling has been an eye opener indead. Although I have started this build I will add photo's and more details as I go when they have backed up google photo's. I already have a number of things I have learnt while doing the initial system transfer so that is where I will start.
