    Default [Build log] first computer ive built in 10 years

    Hey guys

    so all of my parts finally came in today!!

    The last time i built my own pc was about 10 years ago, so i thought that it might be time again to build one
    i'm re-using some of my old hardware, well only my case a monitor really but the hardware is the same as i have listed as my main rig(just haven't put it together yet):

    Fractal design Arc Midi R2
    i5 4670K
    Asus Z87-PRO
    Gigagyte Nvidia GTX 780
    2x8Gb kingston HyperX Beast 2133MHz
    XFX ProSeries Black Edition 850W
    1x OCZ Agility3 60Gb
    1x Samsung 840 500Gb

    I'm trying watercooling for the first time ever. But i thought, what the hell, might as well go all the way so i bought the following:

    Alphacool VPP665
    2x Alphacool UT60 240mm
    XSPC acrylic tank res
    EK-FC Titan SE incl backplate
    EK Supremacy Plexi
    4x Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-3 1900rpm
    Assorted compression fittings 13/10mm
    Clear tubing 13/10mm
    NZXT sentry MIX fan controller

    so all of this came in today, so i hope a haven't made a huge mistake with the cooling parts

    I also bought some green LED's and stuff, and i'm going to use Feser One green liquid.

    I expect to be starting the build tomorrow and will upload pics soon as possible

    Why did you buy the 60GB SSD, seeing as you also bought the 500GB SSD ? Your going to love the 780s, as of today, I currently have 4 of them, good choice on the memory, I've been running 64 GBs of the 2133MHz Beast, never had a problem.

    -20130811_161024.jpg-20130811_161226.jpg-20130812_221922-1-.jpg

    So here are the pics of the finished build...i haven't bothered much with cable management, since the clutter you see with the side-panel off can't be seen through the window...

    oh yeah, added the batman logo for fun

    i'm very surprised with the cooling capability it ended up with...the four fans that i have on the rads only run when i'm gaming, and it keeps the cpu and gpu at a nice cool 45C (with fans running at lowest rpm, about 800-900 and pump at 3200) and both at roughly 31C otherwise(with no fans running at all, 25C ambient temp)

    so i'm quite happy with it
