    I took it off because it had liquid spilt on it from a leak he had in the old case ages ago and the sticker looked pink and red. I ended up not puting the ssd on the side of the rad at the end as i could not get power to the ssd and fit the blu ray drive in at the same time.

    Project 818

    I work at a computer shop in Western Australia and had my computer on display Project Banana Phonez when a customer told me he had seen my build log of the computer here on the forums. He went on and asked me if I could build him a water cooled computer based on TastyPC's 900D review with his existing computer that already had watercooling and parts that would fit the red and black theam. We discused prices and after negotiations I gave him a list of parts he would have to source from the internet to compleate the build. after about a month he had all the parts and I could finaly start the build. This would be the 818th computer that came into the shop for a service this year hence the name. -------------- Components: -------------- Case: Corsair 900D CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z RAM: Red Corsair Dominator GT 16GB SSD: Corsair 120GB Force GT PSU: Coolermaster M2 1000W GPU: 2x Asus 7970 HDD: 2x WD black 2TB
  4. We had a photographer came down to our shop to do a 360 degree photo shoot of main customer-facing area of the store to post on Google maps street view. I managed to get my computer into the photos, check it out here https://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en_uk&ll=-32.100108,115.815704&spn=0.011006,0.009474&sll=-32.099999,115.815725&layer=c&cid=6829061581986346093&panoid=UlsLklhSeDQAAAQIuADJXA&cbp=13,205.18,,1,3.82&gl=AU&t=m&z=17&cbll=-32.100164,115.815752
  5. i have colored tubing with clear fluid Bit of an update since the build, i have since purchased a 40" tv and mounted it to the wall with some swan M50W speakers to go with it, also purchased a cheap laptop, upgraded it with an SSD so that when the power goes out i can still watch movies and youtube i managed to get the 2600K overclocked to 4.7Ghz and max temp is 75C with P95, I have yet to find stable settings for 4.8+ I am also selling the GTX Titan at the moment as I am in need of money to buy a new car so if any one in australia only that is interested send me a PM and I will send you a link to my ebay page. I am selling it with the waterblocks too, it should be available for purchase for the next week or so i will be replacing the Titan mostlikely with a GTX 760
  6. Thanks for the feedback TastyPC if it wasn't for you're video the system would have looked a lot different and no where near as good as it looks now yeh this is the Bibra Lake store
  7. I have not connected any front panel connections other then the power button as i never use them and would rather have the minimal amount of cables being shown inside the case During the build there was water leaking out around the pump, turns out that I forgot to put the o-ring back that sits between the pump and reservoir. no damage was done but it was definitely a scary moment. Total build time of the system took the entire day from 9AM to 3AM the next morning with 2 other people helping me along the way.

  8. Project Banana Phonez The computer has been finished and been in stable working condishion for the past month, I was going to post the build log a lot sooner but unforchantly soon after the build was finished i became unmotivated and very depressed to the point that I had to take time off work to help get better (still recovering). I have been working at Austin computers (a very popular retailer of computer components in Western Australia) as a Computer Technician for the last year and during my time I have only worked on 3 custom water cooled computers all of them only having the CPU water cooled. Eventually after watching TastyPC's Fractal Design Define XL R2 build time lapse i got the inspiration to water cool my own PC -------------- Components: -------------- Case: Fractal Design Define XL R2 CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K Motherboard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z RAM: Red and Black Corsair Vengeance 16GB Total CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 SSD: 2x OCZ Vertex 4 120GB in Raid 0 PSU: Corsair AX860 GPU: Nvidia GTX Titan Sound card: ASUS Xonar D2X Fans: 7x Noctua NF-F12 painted black ---------------------- Water cooling stuff: ---------------------- Pump: Koolance PMP-450 12V Variable Speed Pump Pump Mod: Bitspower D5 Mod Kit black Finish CPU Block: EK Supremacy Acetal CPU Waterblock GPU Block: EK-FC Titan Acetal with back plate Radiators: Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 240mm Dual Radiator Alphacool NexXxoS ST45 240mm Dual Radiator Coolant: EK Ekoolant Clear Premix Reservoir: XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir Tubing: PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing Red 3/8ID 5/8OD Fittings: Bistpower Matte Black 3/8 ID 5/8 OD, lots --------------- Accessories: --------------- Microphone: Audio Technica AT2020 Mouse: 2x Razer Naga epic (one to charge the battery and the other to use) Keyboard: Razer Death Stalker Monitors: ASUS PB278Q 2x Acer V243HL color calibrator: Datacolor Spyder4PRO Headsets: Sennheiser RS 220 Razer Chimaera 5.1 Webcam: Logitech C525 NAS: Synology DS213 With 2x 3TB HDD's in raid 1 for mass storage Originally my plan was to go 2x 680 in SLI but during my testing stage of the build i had great difficulty getting the system to be stable and most of the time I found that the games i was playing actually did not benefit from SLI. in fact in more than three games I was getting less FPS in SLI compared to just 1 680. So I decided to go and just get a GTX Titan Out the back in the warehouse painting all of the sides of the Noctua fans and also 2 6990 water blocks for a different project. I only need to paint the sides of the Noctua fans and don't need to paint the fan blaids as i will be using Silverstone FF121B 120MM Fan Filters to cover them up as it is too difficult to paint the inside of the fan. I left the NexXxoS Monsta on the sales front counter and most of the customers that came in were commenting on it, eventually I had to put it away because people were picking it up and handling it without care. ooh shiny Gk110 making a mess on the sales floor On the back here you can see I have a corsair link with 2 Cooling Nodes attached to it, unforchantly i have since ripped this out and thrown them away due to a bug that would randomly stop all the fans and after investigating the problem I found that it is very common on the corsair forums and there was no fix at the time. due to this I cannot recommend the product to any of my customers.
