    Default Corsair 750D Photo Rendering Station Build Log

    Hey All,

    It's been a while since I have done a work log. So I figure with some down time I am going to have after finishing up my last 2 motherboard reviews, I would start up my build log with the rebuild of my main photo rendering/gaming workstation. Not all the parts here will be new, I took apart my old system that was housed by my beloved Case Labs TH10 case (which I have since sold) and the system has been sitting on a temp. tech bench for some time now. With time being limited with reviews at hand, it was hard for me to work on my own projects.
    But with the TH10 case gone, I decided I need something a little more space manageable but still hold all my components without issues. Primarly, I needed HD support without taking a lot of real estate since the system will be water cooled. So I decided on the Corsair 750D. The 750D fits my need for SSD and HD support all the while able to support my water cooling needs for 1x 360mm rad and 1x 240mm rad.

    Here are the parts I have so far.

    Case: Corsair 750D
    Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth X79
    CPU: Intel i7 4820K (OC to 4.6GHz)
    Memory: 64GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz
    GPU: EVGA GTX 780
    SSD: 2x 240GB Kingston Hyper X 3K (1 for OS and Apps, 1 for Resource heavy software ie: adobe and photo apps)
    2x Intel 530 300GB SSD in Raid 0 for Games,
    Hard Drives: 2x 2TB WD Black (raid 1) for DATA.
    PSU: Corsair AX1200
    Sound Card: Creative Sound Core Fatal1ty Series PCIe

    Cooling Hardware:
    CPU: Swiftech Apogee XL (new swiftech block)
    GPU: EK FC GTX780/Titan Acetal/Copper Block with EVGA back plate
    Rads: Alphacool ST360 and Alphacool UT240
    Pump: Swiftech MCP655
    Res: XSPC Dual Bay Rev2 Res
    Fittings: Bitspower Black Nickle Compressions and misc fittings

    Most likely will start this build over the next few weeks.
    This build is nothing super special. Not many mods will go into this, but this is my main system I use for everyday stuff, but will be good enough for my photo rendering and some gaming when I have the need for it. Just thought I would share my build log as I go along.

    Pics coming Soon!

    Thanks! The plan is to upgrade the CPU to a 4960x, but that will come when money is a little more free flow.

    You're welcome sir. IMO just stay with what you have now and instead of i7 4960x you could upgrade all platform to X79 and i7 5960x.
