Description

There is way to much to explain about this build, so anybody who wants to know exactly how I built this, I kept a build log on a forum called overclock.net, here's the link: http://www.overclock.net/t/1399480/build-log-magnum-watercooled-350d-haswell-build#post_20160092

There is also a COMPLETE list of all parts (Watercooling, Components, Sleeving, Accessories) on the first post of the build log. If anybody has additional question, I would be more than pleased to answer them in the comments below, or in a PM. This was loads of fun, and my third build ever, first water cooled build! I think it turned out pretty well! Thanks for looking!

--Oliver

UPDATE: More pics up of behind the scenes of Magnum, and the process of building it! Also I put a mild 24/7 overclock on it and it's remaining rock solid at 1.2V!

Update 2/19/14: It's been running solid for almost half a year now, still good as new!!! I'm planning on getting a new 2560x1440 IPS Korean Monitor for it in the fall, or sooner if I don't end up doing my next project I'm saving up for that will happen this summer. So yesterday night, I had a night of overclocking with this beast. It was quite a nice, still night, hovering around 3.3 Celsius, so I threw open my windows, turned off my bedrooms heater, removed the side panel, and cranked the fans all up to full blast!!! At stock speeds, the coolest cores were down to 11 degrees Celsius, which even impressed me!!! I brought it to 4.5 immedeatly, which it handled fine, than 4.8, which took a couple tweaks and crashes before I got it to boot up, and then took it to 4.9, yet I couldn't quite hit 5 GHz. I have a feeling I will some day, but my hands were getting numb in the room, since my room was 12.8 degrees Celsius. I put up a new pic at the end of all of them. It shows all of my records I took during the night. Also, here is a link verifying my computer hit 4.9GHz: http://valid.canardpc.com/d9nt6x Overall, I had a ton of fun!!!!

aroupra 1 Build 4 points 17 months ago

Dude thats one crazy build +1,one question how did you fit a custom water cooled loop in a microATX case?

Scaroza 2 Builds 7 points 17 months ago

It's a Corsair 350D, it's designed for use with water cooling hence the removable hard drive bays etc. It's also a fairly big case for something that only takes mATX boards and smaller.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I get that question alot! Came from about 6 months of planning, and about 6 more months of research on how water cooling works, and the most efficient type of loops. I have 2 240mm radiators, one 30mm thick, one 60mm thick.

wow, such a nice build! and these pictures are top quality

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Thanks! The pictures were just the PC, a bedsheet draped over a posterboard, natural light through a window, and a nikon point and shoot camera! (and a flash for some of the pics).

8BitPhoenix 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Sorry to bother you, but please could you give me the model of the Camera. it looks fantastic! Also, the bits where the front was in focus and the back was not, does the camera do that automatically or was that a manual thing? Great build, really great cables too! +1

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

It's the Nikon Coolpix L120, and the focus thing is sort of manual. You point the center of the screen where you want it focused, and it focuses to that point, I hope it helps!

8BitPhoenix 4 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Yea thats great, thanks man! I was juts wondering, can you turn that feature off and just use it to normally take picture with the whole thing in focus?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

I THINK so, not sure, there are different modes such as landscape, sports, still shot, portraits, meuseum... so on... it's mostly auto stuff that changes settings.Bottom line I highly recommend it.

ImElkay 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Absolutely beautiful. The runs are so clean and perfect. +1

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Thank you, all these positive comments really mean a lot to me.

ImElkay 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Just one comment though. It looks like by having that water block where the tubes connect on the bottom of the graphics card, you won't be able to add anything else into the PCIE lanes. Is that the case or are the pictures deceiving? Excuse me if my terms are wrong, I know virtually nothing about water cooling.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Great question! I actually never thought of that, but you are correct, but I have a usb wifi adapter, and the sound on the motherboard is well above my standards, so the only thing I would add would possibly be a second graphics card, but that I would also put under water, so I would just modify the loop slightly to accommodate for it.

ImElkay 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Okay, I'm glad I didn't ruin your day or anything by pointing that out. You can buy the watercooled SLI connectors (again, know nothing about water cooling) where you just run the tubes to the bridge and it cools both cards?

If that was hard to understand (probably was) here is a link to a build that did what I am trying to describe. Skip to 16:10 to see what I mean. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JtHDqdo5pR0

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

I know exactly what you're talking about, but I think in my case, I would actually connect the two GPU;s by tubing, since the original use of my tubing (rigid acrylic), was to serve as an SLI connector. Bitspower came up with it, and called it crystal link tubing, but then I found this guy in Europe that made longer length acrlyic tubing with same dimensions as bitspower (E22 Tubing), so I bought his tubing, and bitspower's crystal link fittings, and it worked!

MuiaxPCs 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Nice build man. I'm currently building a machine now with a water cooling system. That is the main reason why its taking so long. What kind of coolant do you use?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I am using Mayhems Pastel White coolant. When you fill your loop with coolant, beware that coolant DOES stain tubing and sometimes clog up and make your waterblocks all mucky. If using colored coolant make sure to have a very high flow loop with a good pump. Colored tubing and DI water is recommended, but they didn't make the type of acrylic tubing I wanted in color... good luck and happy building!

MuiaxPCs 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Yes, this is why its taking so long. I can't make my mind up on what coolant to use. I have read tons of stuff saying whats better and what not to use.Thanks

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 1 point 17 months ago

Yeah, one of my friends that watercooled his full tower build uses a mixture of distilled water, antifreeze, and an antibacterial additive.

Jimmy 3 points 17 months ago

Antifreeze? Water won't go below ambient temperature...

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I didn't use it, so I'm not exactly sure, maybe just to be safe, maybe it absorbs heat better than water?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

Actually, it doesn't! I just found that is has about half the specific heat capacity of water (2.2), When I believe water is 4.184.

canders 7 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Wow! Great detail even down to the PSU. Awesome. +1.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Thanks! I peeled off the label (tedious), and removed the glue with some goo gone, and carefully put two layers off red carbon fiber vinyl film on it so it was completely opaque (took me 3 tries!). With the fan grill, I kinda lucked out, and forgot to peel off the plastic packaging cover on the corsair circular logo in the middle, so I painted it, and then peeled that off, and voila!

RedPhoneBooth 1 Build 3 points 17 months ago

Woah! Nice man! How do you even start custom water-cooling?? How do you know what parts to get and stuff, do you plan it all out carefully beforehand? And lights are awesome btw... Good way to make a computer look cool for cheap...

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

Honestly, I started by googling it! I then joined the forum I mentioned, overclock.net, which is pretty much a community of watercoolers, and modders, and asked them questions, one by one, until I had it all figured out. Youtube guides are also a huge help! In my case, it was pretty hard to plan out the loop route exactly, because I used rigid acrylic tubing instead of the standard flexible tubing, so I had to predict every angle bend I would need. I ordered some, tried them, and then ordered more, until it all worked, and I only ended up with 3 fittings left over. It takes a lot of patience, but it was definitely worth it for me.

FaPooCcino 3 points 17 months ago

Hi may I ask you one question...What is the fan controller you are using?(Sorry for bad english)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I am using a Lamptron 8 Channel (30 Wt per channel) FC8 Controller. I love it, and it's worked flaweless for me so far!

Gooberdad 3 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

Very nice build. How much were the water cooler parts, and where did you purchase them?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

The water loop added up to about 800 if I remember correctly, and I purchased them mainly from Performance PC's, with a few orders from frozen CPU.

Gooberdad 3 Builds 3 points 17 months ago

OMG I haven't looked that stuff at all. Thanks for the info. I will not complain again about an all in one kit costing over $100 when I look at them. Damn that is nice dude

Did you use paracord for sleeving?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

No, I used a type of sleeving called Stiff Line sleeving, made by LutroO, a user on overclock.net. He has great products and youtube guides on all sorts of sleeving!

spencerharden 3 points 17 months ago

can u plz put the price of the water cooling

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I estimate around 800 for the complete loop, but if you really want, you can add up the price of all the parts in my complete list on my build log. When I enough time, I may do it myself because I am slightly curious myself!

snopuff 3 points 17 months ago

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

I fully encourage you to! All it it takes is patience...

DownloadMoreRAM 3 points 17 months ago

Holy ****! NICE! you should have had your tubes be clear red plastic! nice job though!

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 17 months ago

Thanks! I thought that colored coolant looks better personally, and the red tubes would add too much red to the build, and not have enough white. Thanks for the idea though!

DownloadMoreRAM 3 points 16 months ago

All comes down to personal preference. If that's what you think looks sexy, then by all means! ;)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 16 months ago

That's what I thought! In flex tubing, I think I'd rather go with colored tubing, because with clear tubing, you can see the wall of the tubing, which I don't think is as aesthetically pleasing as just a solid wall of color. But again, that's just my personal preference, and I could understand how others think that a clear wall surrounding color looks awesome!

redflaggaming 3 points 16 months ago

I have a quick question. Please forgive me if it is idiotic, but if you send to much power to a fan from the controller, will it damage/break the fan?

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 16 months ago

I honestly don't know, but I think how it works is the fan controller provides a certain amount of power available to a fan. You can sort of think of a fan controller to a fan as a PSU is to a PC. If you throw a Corsair AX1200 in a 200 budget build taht takes 100 wts peak, it won't fry the pc, hopefully.

Cstaker 3 points 15 months ago

Such a nice build! I rly want to build one like you!, but I had no experience with building a PC. I looked at your thread, but I couldn't understand what you did..... Is there an easy way to understand how to build your PC? Thx

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Well if you know how to build a regular, air cooled PC, that's most of it! Their are some simple cable sleeving tutorials listed in one of my comments with a huge list of links (one of the first comments I think). As for the watercooling, there are many videos and links that I've listed on that also! The simplest way to learn would be just to watch and read, because if I told you everything about watercooling at once, it would be slightly overwhelming for most people. Good luck!

Cstaker 3 points 15 months ago

MLPortal 3 points 12 months ago

A bit late here, but I love the look of your build

The angles of the tubing bother me a little bit, but everything else is fantastic and it's not my place to judge. Great job.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Thank you!! This was sadly built just before Rigid tube bending became very easy and common, and making all the tubes horizontal or vertical would have been very cosly to do with fittings.

MLPortal 3 points 12 months ago

I bet. Do you think you might change it up at any point? (it looks great eiter way)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

I honestly don't think I'll end up changing it up because I'm at a really money sensitive point in my life (high school), so if I would spend more money on computers, chances are it would be just saving up to build a new one when this gives out in 5 years or so, and also a new monitor up to date rather than a leftover one from my dads office. I wouldn't hesitate to change it up if I could afford it, I love messing around with design like that!!!

MLPortal 3 points 12 months ago

Yeah, there are definitely more cost efficient things to change than the shape of the loop. Anyway, the build looks great, especially for high school.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 3 points 12 months ago

Thanks, I spent about 4 months planning this specific build,high school got boring... :)

So in the summer do you use that drain port to get some water, lemonade or whatever you feel like drinking? Anyways great build can't wait to see what else you can make.

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 2 points 12 months ago

Thanks!! The drain port actually serves best for carbonated beverages. Because of it's close proximity to the pump, I can get some real pressure going out the drainport to carbonate drinks, coke especially. :)

p1en1nja 2 points 12 months ago

ahhh, i see, that makes sense. Well enjoy your beverages!!!

Sam_McCofin 1 Build 2 points 11 months ago

What coolant and fittings are they?? Looks really good for my upcoming build! :)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

It is Mayhems Pastel White coolant, with all bitspower fittings. What's the plan for your build look like?

Sam_McCofin 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

I have no idea, that's why I'm asking you!! :)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Well, I have to say my build is working very well!!! If you're looking to save some money though, I would bend the rigid acrylic tubing instead of buying a crap load of fittings to make it all work. I built this before bending acrylic really was a viable and easy option, so it was much more expensive sadly...

Sam_McCofin 1 Build 2 points 10 months ago

I agree, but the fittings just make it look so damn good!! We'll have to see though... Thanks!! :)

Oliver submitter 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

It looks good for the most part to me, just be sure to confirm that you actually will use 3 TB of HD space, most people don't use more than one, so if money is important to you, I'd say think about that. Looks awesome otherwise! :)

well thank you Oliver and i might just get 2TB but i am going to go crazy on steam sails with all of those grate priced games. and i am tired of being a damn consul peasant!! lol

That's true, but you have to take into account that a 4.3GHz Intel processor may be just as physically fast as a 5 GHz AMD processor. It has to do with how much each processor does with each cycle, so even though AMD has bigger numbers, it's better to test the actual performance of the processor than just what it says the speed is, because they're honestly very hard to compare.
