Introduction

Hi everyone! I've been building PCs for a while now, but I haven't really posted any of my build online. This build originally started out as an upgrade for my current desktop that is an 800D, but I'll be building this system in a 900D as a completely new setup. I've purchased a pretty sizeable amount of parts already, but I've still got a decent amount to go. I'm going to start disassembling my desktop pretty soon and start putting in the new parts soon! I'm not the best photographer, but I'll make sure I try to take lots of pictures for everyone!

 

Parts List
Purchased, Not Purchased, Undecided
Case: Corsair 900D
Motherboard: Asus Z87-Pro Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770K
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked in SLI

RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
PSU: Corsair RM850 Modular Power Supply
Storage
: Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD

                Samsung 840 EVO 256GB SSD
___________________________________

 

Fans: Corsair SP120 and AF120/140 fans
CPU Block: EK Supremacy Clean Acetal + Nickel Block

GPU Block: 2x EK FC780 GTX Ti - Acetal + Nickel Waterblock and Backplate

Radiator: 2x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Quad Radiator

Pump: Swiftech MCP655 with EK Top

Resoviour: Phobya Balancer 250 Matte Black

Tubing: Primochill PrimoFlex Tubing

Fittings: Bitspower Black Compression Fittings

Cables: Corsair Individually Sleved White PSU Cables

 

That's what I've got for now! I'm really excited to get started!

 

Finished photos on page 3.

Thanks guys!

 

So, I just bought a 900D. That'll change things up a bit. Gotta figure out what to do with my old system now.

 

My ram also arrived in the mail. I'll try getting some pictures of the parts that I already have.

Subed! Looking to use a 780 ti with the same water block/backplate in my system. Will be my first custom water cooling loop. Can't wait to see how this comes out man!

Just a small update. My 780 Ti came in a couple days ago, but I haven't posted an update due to Christmas. I'll snap a picture tomorrow morning.

Thank you! I changed the jetplate. It was really easy. Just unscrew 4 screws, take off the old plate, put the new one on, then screw all four screws back on.
