OC3D Rig Gallery - jamesriley94

We have been noticing quite a few very good projects popping up in our Project Log section of the Forum recently and we though it’s about time we showcase some of them. If you haven't been there go take a look and even leave a log of your own if you’re planning a new build or even doing some mods of your own.

Today it’s the turn of jamesriley94, this user started off with his project/gallery called ‘insert meaningful title here’ which was a very good build which consisted of:

Intel 3770k
P8Z77 deluxe board
8GB Mushkin Blackline ram
Noctua D14
Corsair AX850 With braided cables
MSI 7950
Crucial M4 128GB
CoolerMaster 690 II

OC3D Rig Gallery - Switch 810

There were a few plans in the pipeline such as watercooling and a few other tweaks but in the end the next little update consisted of getting rid of the noisy 7650, changing all of the out of place red fans for Silverstone Air Penetrators and most disturbing he ditched the Noctua fans :o

So the ending spec of the system was:


P8Z77 deluxe
3770k
D14 with Silverstone fans
AX850
KFA2 670
Crucial M4
CM 690 II

This Elusive OC3D Xmas competition came around dubbed ‘Custom Corsair Christmas Compo’ and as most people on the forum did he entered hoping to win some goodies, well this year was his lucky year and he won 3rd place which entitled him to a £150 SpecialTech voucher and a selection of Corsair goodies which included the Vengeance 1500, M90 and the MM400.

Let’s start with what James did with the SpecialTech voucher. From the looks of things he planned to watercool his system in some way be it the Corsair h100 or a custom loop.

So James bit the bullet and decided to go buy some goodies with his winnings, roughly around half of his watercooling equipment was covered by the voucher and he put in some cash himself to get what he wanted.

He started off by getting hold of a NZXT Switch 810 and a Radiator, his original plan was to get something like a Trooper/Stryker and mod it however due to being a uni student there is a restriction on having power tools in halls. Also being a uni student limited his choices in purchases so there was no custom made parts or special fittings.

So after ordering most of the Watercooling equipment, case and everything else that he needed he though what the heck and went all out so ordered himself a new GPU and block.

Now some people are thinking ooooo 2 670’s well unfortunately his KFA2 670 wasn’t a reference design and he didn’t like the idea of a universal block, so in the end he went for a Raystorm GPU & CPU block’s.

He based most of his choices on reviews and advice from the one and only OC3D along with some previous experience.

He then looked back on how much he spent and it came close to £750 excluding the voucher, this got him thinking and he came up with the notion of well what are student loans for if not for watercooling?

The final spec after the new gear was added :

3770k
P8Z77-v Deluxe
EVGA 670 FTW
AX850 with blue braided cables
8gb Mushkin Blackline
Xonar Essence STX
Crucial M4 128gb
NZXT Switch 810 Matte Black.


Watercooling:
XSPC Raystorm Waterblock
XSPC 680 Razor Waterblock
Alphacool UT60 360mm Rad
XSPC D5 Reservoir with pump
Mastercleer Hi-Flex 7/16 with Bitspower 1/2 fittings.



So now on to some glory shots with all his lovely new kit installed.

As for the other prize’s that he won well he has decided to hand them back to OC3D for someone else who could benefit more than himself. This decision was down to the fact that he has very similar gear and would have been very insincere of him to pretend that he would use the prizes.

I then asked him what made you decided to decline them and not simply sell then as some may do. His reply was a very modest and compelling, he was against selling them as he didn’t think it was right and that they could go to someone who would actually use them and be very grateful for them.

Another reason behind this was the fact that the forum has helped him a lot with advice and many other things so it seemed right to give back and possibly inspire others to help out on the forum if they can. Kudos for the kindness mate it’s nice to see.

James did say he would like to thank SpecialTech for not only the voucher but the awesome service when ordering.

If you would like to visit his gallery feel free to do so in the OC3D Forums

After getting the 3rd prize in this years competition, I decided to make a few upgrades to my PC - and with that, will probably have ended up being the most expensive competition I've ever won
Old rig: http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=44560

Most of the hardware is pretty much the same as the last one, as I got the new case yesterday and just transferred everything over - but they'll be some updates over the next few days.

Here's how it stands now:

http://i.imgur.com/bMz6Yny.jpg

Excuse the fact that there's about 6 different types of fan in there - I had temperature issues last night - but they're all running at 5v so it's still near silent.

Also excuse the two different 670s - but there's a reason for that - and as many of you know, I hate full tower cases that use air coolers *hint hint*

Anyway - Thanks to TTL, OC3D and Specialtech for making this possible.

Current specs:
Switch 810
3770k @4.5ghz - Noctua NH-D14
P8Z77-v Deluxe
AX850
Crucial M4
KFA2 670
EVGA 670 FTW
Xonar Essence STXQuote

I know - I kind of miss it actually. It was just so well built - and just makes the Switch feel cheap......well....actually, the fact that the Switch arrived to me with bits of plastic snapped off makes it feel cheap.
And you should do! It'd be nice to see what someone could do with it. I did consider trying to get a thin 360 in the roof then a thick 240 in the bottom. Still - as much as I loved it, I fancied a change.Quote

On my end just that roof feels incredibly flimsy especially those push in lock thingys other then that its perfect! If you are on AIR you should have gone with the phantom personally I prefer the original looks.Quote

Yeah, it is mainly the roof that I feel is cheap. It's one of the push fittings on the roof that snapped off, making the whole panel very shakey. There are push fittings all over the case however, which are probably less likely to break, but being push fittings, they'll only last a certain amount of time anyway.
Also the window panel isn't secured on as well as I'd have hoped.

Other than that though, I love the case.

And yeah, completely agree about the air, but hopefully by later today, I won't be Quote

Thanks for the offer - but from that, I think we're talking about different things.

http://i.imgur.com/ZPWbF0Y.jpg

The plastic clip bit on the left is non-existant (and you can see from the markings it's been snapped off.

I've contacted NZXT so will hopefully get a replacement, but as that's part of the panel itself, the entire vent panel would need replacing.

Thanks again for the offer Quote

Thanks everyone, and Thanks again Tom for the prize

Temps aren't stunning - (CPU at 4.5ghz and GPU at 1085mhz)
Idle: CPU= 40-45 GPU=35
Unigine: Both max around 55-60
IBT got up to 80 however.

Having said that, the D5 is on the lowest speed, and every fan in the case is at 5v. Plus I've probably not bled it entirely, but I'm emptying it to take to uni either today or tomorrow, so it seemed a be pointless to run it upside-down and everything.

I may put in push/pull at some point. I've got enough space there - just - so I think extra fans would work quite well there.Quote

I am yeah - but it's a 60mm 360, and temps aren't really an issue.
I hit about 60-65 under load on CPU, and a few degrees less on the GPU, and that's with every fan in the case at 5v, and the D5 at the lowest speed setting.

I'm contemplating adding a second GPU at some point, so I would do then, but temps aren't much of a concern atm.Quote

Love this setup and congrats on the prize - I'm really pleased that it went to a deserving forum member!

That rad won't be having issues with your setup. Under gaming loads you are probably pushing 300-400W into the loop which will make the exhaust pretty warm though I'd imagine

What's it like living with your newly evolved beast?Quote

Yeah, the rad seems fine atm. Temps are all okay, and fans can't run slower, so I'd say it's easily enough.

It's nice to live with really
Bit of a hassle draining everything when I had to take it to uni, but fortunately I can just open one of the stop caps on the GPU with a jug underneath, and it all drains out very easily through there. Just like having a drain line that doesn't look stupid! But even so, it doesn't take long at all to bleed and refill so it's not much of a concern.

Just need to order some more fans at some point, as the stock NZXT ones were too loud for me, even at 5v, so I currently only have 2 intakes in the entire case.Quote

Yes it is the matte black one. I wasn't sure if the standard ones had the cut outs in the drive bay 'shelf'. So I just spent a little more to make sure. I'm happy with the matte black anyway.

You've reminded me to upload more pictures though as I now have push/pull:

If I don't put flash on, it doesn't focus at all.

And yeah, most cables could be done better tbh. I was kind of rushed building it, and I haven't even used a single cable tie on the back.

I still need to add/change a couple of fans when I have time, so I'll re-do them then. Just isn't something that concerns me massively atm Quote

A little trick for those little bits of colored wire on those front panel connectors is use a Sharpie brand permanent marker on the wire. Maybe the poor mans way to do this.

I just grabbed a card reader out of my junk drawer and quickly did these wires and I was not careful to be perfect, just showing an example. Once done without it right in your face or in a macro close-up flash picture it just looks like gloss black wire. Be better if it were a flat, not gloss, but it is better than tiny bits of color showing in my humble opinion.

With a tiny bit of modding you can get barbs at the front. Depending on the specific rad you get too, you may even be able to get away with no modding assuming you get one of the special edition cases (or maybe all of them now have the holes in the drive bay tray?)

I sold it to a friend. It wasn't a reference design unfortunately, and I didn't fancy a universal block. I don't game anymore anyway, and especially as I'm not even using my 3 screens anymore, I don't feel the need to SLI at all!Quote

Understandable, if you're not gaming, using 3 screens and the PCB wasn't reference in the first place, I wouldn't have kept it either. Universal GPU Blocks are pointless imo, they look ugly :/Quote

Have the same case as you, and a 360 mm rad and a 420mm, if Nzxt send me the new top to 15mm on 140mm fans

Heh, yeah - I only had the Noctua in for a couple of days.

I do have a second rad in the floor now yes - not that I had an issue with temps with just the single rad.

However, the reservoir has developed a leak so the whole thing is out of action for a bit. Although depending on my choice for a replacement, it could be a nice update.

I'll post pictures with the new rad once I get the reservoir sorted!Quote

23-03-2013, 18:34:21

jamesriley94
Bit of an update then.

I got a second rad, but unfortunately the old reservoir developed a leak so that's been replaced by separate reservoir and pump top.

The reservoir sucks... The fittings on it are too high up, meaning any small knock on the case and it sends water into the loop. Also due to the design, I can't fill it up past around 80%, making the initial problem worse.

The pump also isn't properly secured as I lost interest and just wanted to get it working again, so that's just on the bottom rad with velco, which works pretty well tbh.

I will fix it at some point, when I gain interest again and replace the reservoir.
And yeah, I know the tubes for the res are too long, but I'll sort that out when I replace it.

Minor update...

I moved the rad into the front a few weeks ago, and I've been picking up additional Silverstone fans along the way.
My braided extension for the soundcard came apart, so I'm making do with a normal extension. I've got another on order though.

http://i.imgur.com/F0LfIMh.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/fqtGwx6.jpg

http://i.imgur.com/XAt9iFI.jpg


Tbh, the whole PC needs a clean really. Probably due a coolant change soon anyway so I may do a re-jig then.
I do need to get a tube res sorted as any slight knock in the case ends in water being put straight into the pump from the existing single bay res.

Also, the red fitting on the front rad can probably be changed. I do have others, but at the time, I thought it was only going to be temporary anyway.

However, I am very short on money atm, and considering I haven't even thought about playing a game in the last few months, the 670 is massively overkill for my needs. Because of this, I am thinking about dropping the 240 and possibly just go to a CPU loop, but I'll have to see.Quote

Hopefully it will look better when I've got a tube res in.

Do now have LEDs back on the Raystorm too Quote

lol, I'm not making a video of it dude...

I don't have it anymore anyway. The LEDs are incredibly easy to install though. There's just 2 little pre-drilled holes on the block to fit the 3mm LEDs, and you just push them in, and the fit is tight enough for them to stay. That's all there is to it really.

Thanks though Quote

They come with it, as do the ones for the CPU block, but any 3mm LEDs will fit, if you wanted it in a different colour or something.Quote

Nice build dude, any more changes since you lasted posted? Hope you kept your 240 rad, seems a waste to just run a single rad in a Switch Quote

The WC has long since been disbanded!

I'm at uni and it's too much effort to transport a full tower, fully watercooled PC.

Lots of things have changed now, got a 3960x and 690, and swapped to a Silverstone RV03. It's nothing special really any more, although I may make a few changes in a few months!Quote

Lol, I might at some point.

And nothing at all tbh. I got the R4F, 3960x and the GTX690 for £500 in total, which was too good a deal to miss really. I don't do anything that really tests the PC - not really any point having it, but it's just too much effort to downgrade now!Quote
