Description

This is my first computer build. I designed it to be clean and destroy BF3 and BF4. I was able to overclock the GTX 780 Hydro coppers to 1241 Mhz. I did delid the i7 4770k I did get lower temps and more even temps across all cores I have a few more pic coming soon

Revision: Flipped back rad fan to pull Add bottom exhaust fan New temp cpu 30 low 45 load. Gpu almost always 43

Revision: Add GTX 780 classified hydro copper Add 2 120 rads and SP120 fans cleaned-up watercooling route Mod evga sli bridge "red" paint xspc raystorm

Note: 3D Mark 11 Extreme "hall of fame rank 38" 10181 Score 1371mhz I more more power I did crash at 1410 mhz

Awesome build!! +1 What fps are you getting in bf3? Have you played any other games with it? What fps on those?

  • 75 months ago

At the moment i have it capped at 125 fps If i let it go it will hit 130-180 fps in metro 64 man server I played crisis 2 but didn't check the fps It pretty much just BF3 for me

Beautiful build. I've been waiting for someone to put a formula into a R4 for a while now. Just curious but, much space would you say there was between the motherboard and the top of the case?

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

Me too. I measured from the bottom of the fan to the top of the motherboard is " 5/8 " I considered a top Rad and still might At the moment I thinking of adding a 120 rad at the bottom

Nice looking, clean build! However it seems like you had some problems with the length of your tubing? Why didn't you cut it, it appears in some places that it's way too long. Solid build though overall!

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

I agree I need the rad tube and res tube to be long from drain, fill and air filter cleaning

Also I cut them longer to make sure I have a enough

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

Alright, fair enough. Although in the future you can use the flllport on the reservoir, and just connect a tube to that when you need to, it's easier than unscrewing the compression fittings and taking out the barb, and probably less messy.

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

I planned ahead before I assemble everything I drilled a fill and drain hole. When I revise the cooling system I will finish the fill/drain and shorten the tubing the revision is adding a 120 rad and fan at the bottom

So what kind of airflow would this be? Am I understanding this corectly -- hot air is being pushed out both the back and through the rad out the front?

Are there fans mounted to the top that i can't see? If so, they'd be pushing cold air into the case, right?

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

I made so revision since the picture. 2x 140 in top of the case "intake" 1x 140 back "exhaust" 1x 140 bottom "exhaust" 2x 120 front Rad pull air in 2x 120 rear Rad pull air away from rad I open to ideas

  • 75 months ago

Damn that's a lot of components for a single 240 rad. Nice build though, nice choice of thermal paste and nice SLI bridge.

I know, something I was really considered about. But with a few changes it seem to be great. Idle 31-35c cpu load 45-50c w/4.2 cpu gpu 43c

I think delid helped alot

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

It being an intake probably helps a lot too. Getting that cold air from the outside instead of the warm air in the case. What RPM are you running the fans at?

  • 75 months ago
  • 1 point

The top fans 1050 RPM back and bottom 600-500 RPM

Question: It's hard for me to see exactly what all you have for your radiators but how many and what size do you have? I have an Azza Hurrican 2000 and I'm thinking of adding a 360mm radiator on the top inside with noctua fans on pull. However, I'd still need to add more since I'll also have two 780's classies on with the hydro copper blocks. How much more cooling do you think I'll need? I know I can stick a 140/120mm on the back exhaust. I think I can also put another one on the very bottom as well.

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

I have 120mm slim in the rear 120mm 45mm thick bottom 240mm 45mm thick front

I dont know Azza hurrican 2000, but I looked it up it should do 360 rad. Do what need more, No you need 1 120mm per device cooled so if you have 2gpu and 1 cpu then 360 is good, I am cooling 4 devices so i have 480 worth of cooling, Also I found delid and lapping the cpu to be very helping for cooling also use coolabatory ultra thermal paste I also changed all my fan to noctua and change my pump to D5 vario I also lapping the cpu waterblock very helpful

yes i think you have a nice build there. only thing i would change "possibly" is the maximus extreme 6 is a little overkill and costs more than you get. But not knowing your goals i could be wrong. I think the true valve of the extreme is more then 3 GPU's and heavily tweaking your overclock

Also is really like Cooler Master HAF XB (Black) i want to do a watercooled HAF XB

Have fun with your build
