Description

Sorry about the missing description. Here is a little background on this build:

This build consists of new parts and old parts from previous builds. This was completed using parts from 2 builds, one from an older mATX 350D the other from a newer mini-itx NCASE M1 build. Originally my plan was to sell off the 350D system and keep the M1 system. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a buyer for the whole system so I ended up parting it out and re-using what I could.

Notes

  • Using a tube reservoir versus a bay reservoir made it easier to bleed the system. I couldn't get all the air out using the later.

  • I had to bend the lower lip of the 5.25" bay to get the reservoir to fit.

  • I have to remove the fan above the reservoir to fill the loop.

  • I couldn't fit both fan/radiator inside the case as it interfered with inlet port of the CPU block. So I mounted the fan on the outside of the case. I had to cut out the concave mesh in the rear so the fan would sit flush.

  • I plan on changing out the Mayhem's Pastel Red liquid to something else, because right now it basically looks pink.

The system is used mainly for gaming and lightly for internet browsing and watching online videos.

UPDATE: 2014.06.18

  • Added 15ml of Mayhem's red dye to turn the pastel red to a deeper red color instead of pink.

  • Added new pics.

A picture is worth a 1000 words.

But not necessarily the words we are looking for.

Normally I would complain about MoBo:Case ratio but with WC, you really put it to good use. Would love to see a pic from a distance. Nice job dude!

Thanks, I tried to fit in as much as I could into the case. I'll try to get more pics in a few weeks when I change out the liquid.

Nice build! Just BTW, (I know this is a bit unrelated) how is that G502 mouse? I'm considering getting it, just wanted some actual info from a real user. Also, how are the Nickel EK Blocks? I've heard that they could have problems, so just wanted to know..

Thanks!

Comparing the G502 with my older Corsair M60, I like the G502 better. It fits nicely in my hand and very comfortable to use. Its built very nicely. Gliding the mouse across my mouse pad I can feel some friction whereas the M60 moved effortlessly and felt like it was gliding on air. For long term use though and all around I like the G502 better.

From my understanding they fixed the issues they've had with their Nickel blocks. I've changed out liquids 3 times already and the blocks are still like new. I personally have not had any issues with them at all.

Thank you very much! I'm hoping I'll be able to find stock of the G502, and as for the EK Blocks, that's just a plan I have in my head...:)

The G502, I picked up at a local Best Buy. They had a handful in stock.

How is the G930 and G502 performing ?

Check my reply to geogeodude in regards to the G502. In regards to the G930, when I first got it I loved it. Unfortunately, after a few months down the road I noticed the following problems:

  • As soon as I hit the desktop the wireless signal will go in and out. After a few minutes it will be fine.
  • The headsets battery life is starting to decline.
  • I noticed in Diablo 3 the sounds started to distort.

Other than that they are very comfortable and its nice to be able to walk around un-tethered. Earlier on, the sound quality was very crisp and the 7.1 surrounds is OK.

This is REALLY amazing. Puts my 350D build on here to shame! I love how you got creative in your space usage too. Great job.

Big Question dude, what do you think about the logitech g502, would you recomend it ? is it worth it for the high price ?

  • 68 months ago

This is the answer I told someone else -

"Comparing the G502 with my older Corsair M60, I like the G502 better. It fits nicely in my hand and very comfortable to use. Its built very nicely. Gliding the mouse across my mouse pad I can feel some friction whereas the M60 moved effortlessly and felt like it was gliding on air. For long term use though and all around I like the G502 better."

As far as price goes. It is a bit steep but I think it was worth the upgrade.

I generally re-use old parts from previous builds. So purchases were made over a span of a few years, not all at once.

Looks beautiful, but I won't give a +1 until I see a description. It really helps to see why you chose the parts you did, how much experience you have, etc. Hope to see one soon!

Nearly $4000 but you couldn't spend the extra $100 for an i7-4770k?

  • 69 months ago

Used parts from different builds. For my gaming needs a 4670k is good enough.
