So, the forum update seems to have buggered the formatting of this post. I've tried to fix it as best I can, but some things are still not in the correct place.

Complete! The build is done, leak tested, bled (to an extent), wired up, booted and Windows installed, all working perfectly! I still need to take the final pictures of the build, and I'll probably put them near the top of this post once I've got them. 

 

The name:  シルバー (Shirubā) Literally translates into "Silver". This is mainly due to the build being primarily black but with silver accents. It's in Japanese because it sounds much more pleasing than in English, and I also just like the Japanese language. 

 

Specs: 

 
CPU i7 3770K
Motherboard  Asus Sabertooth Z77
RAM  4x4GB Corsair Dominator Platinum @1866 MHz (going to be 3x4GB for a bit, one of them died. Might get a 16GB kit and make it a total of 24GB)
GPU  2x EVGA GTX Titan Black
Case  Corsair 750D
Storage  2x 250GB Samsung 840 EVO (RAID 0) + single 250GB 840 EVO + 2TB Seagate Barracuda. 
PSU  Corsair AX860 (w/ custom sleeved cables)
Display(s)  3x Acer H236HLbmid
Keyboard  Corsair K95 + Ducky Shine 3 (MX Browns)
Mouse  Corsair M95
Sound  Corsair Vengeance 2100 Headset

 

Watercooling:

 

CPU Block  EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ
GPU Block x2  EK-FC780 GTX Ti
Reservoir  EK-RES X3 250 + Multioption top
240mm Radiator x2  EK-CoolStream PE 240 (Only 1 240mm now, I didn't have enough room for both of them)
360mm Radiator  EK-CoolStream PE 360
Pump  EK-D5 Vario X-TOP
Tubing  EK-Tube ZMT Matte Black
Compression Fittings  EK-CSQ Nickel 
Angled Fittings  EK-CSQ Adapter 90° Nickel + EK-CSQ Adapter 45° Nickel
GPU Bridge  EK-FC Terminal
 

'll update this as I go along. Any suggestions are welcome. 

 

Update 08/06/14. Had an idea for mounting SSDs instead of using the normal mounts in the 750D

Update 19/09/2014. More watercooling parts arrived. Very nearly done with the watercooling parts at this point. Next update will likely be the SSD mounting plate.

Update #1 22/10/2014. Starting to strip the case and looking at how to remove the optical cage. Drill doesn't work, so going to have to get a new one to remove the rivets. Also, mounting plate arrived.

Update #2 24/10/2014. Instead of filing down all of the edges, I found that bending them back gave a better finish and was much much quicker, however ghetto it may be.

Update #3 24/10/2014. Cleaned up the case and some quick test fits with the motherboard and mounting plate. Not a perfect fit, but I don't think it looks too bad (:

Update 25/10/2014. Mounting plate is pretty much finished, just a few things to add and need to straighten the reservoir. Didn't have as much room as I had originally thought, so it's a tighter fit than I would have liked.

Update 27/10/2014. Radiators in, SSDs wired up, reservoir straightened and mounting plate finished. I didn't have enough room to fit both 240mm radiators in along with the pump, kind of annoyed about that. I have a PCIE cable to sleeve before I put the graphics cards in.

That's the name of one of the characters in my stories. She's a kitsune. :D

I love that word, and it feels appropriate for such a build. <3

Currently, no. I might do after I finish the build, but I haven't really thought about that yet. 

Fair enough it was amazing work on them. You should think about offering a painting/modding service for those kind of coolers.

I gotta keep an eye out on this thread! I am also impreseed with the custom paint job. 

 

Can't wait to see more. :)

First off, this is very early days in this build. I have the majority of the main components, but I'm still buying the watercooling parts. I have some pictures of the watercooling parts that I have so far, and I'll add more when I start taking my current build apart and get all of the components out.

Just an idea. I've been looking at different SSDs, and a lot of the ones I like the look of have their connectors on the right hand side (like PNY SSDs and 840 EVOs), meaning I can't mount them in my 750D without turning them upside down. I was thinking of removing the mounts and drive cage, then creating a plate to mount them on. 

 

Just a really quick sketch up, let me know what you think.

I really like that Idea, you will really show off your SSDs and it will look great.


I am a "stupid" 17 year old that can solve a rubik's cube in under 30 seconds and that is getting into pc gaming.

Thumbs up?

Thanks. I'm just trying to work out how to mount it and how to cut the holes. I could drill holes in the corners and then use a jigsaw to cut the rest, or I could spend a little more and pay someone with a laser cutter to do it for me. I'd need to get the text engraved anyway, so I might be able to do both at the same time.

Made a more detailed and better idea for the SSD mounting/backplate. I'm planning on making this out of 1.5-2mm thick aluminium as I find it's a much nicer material than acrylic, as well as being stronger. Don't have to worry about melting plastic or cracking it which makes it much easier to use. Haven't decided on the paint I'll use yet, but I'm thinking some type of automotive paint will hold nicely on the metal and look good. Trying to decide between using a satin paint, or using a matte paint, then maybe putting a light coat of satin finish on it.

 

The design might change after I make a mock up and see how the radiators are going to sit and how much space there is with the 5.25" cage removed. 

 

The shape of this was inspired by this build after I saw it posted on EK's today.

Thanks. Yeah, the NB BlackSilent pros have impressed me so far. They're close to silent, even at full RPM. I was trying to work out how to fit in a fan controller after I remove the 5.25" bays, but they're so quiet that I think I'll just have them at 100% all the time. Very good for a £10 fan too.

Dang their that quiet? I think I know what fans I'm getting for my next build then.... Do they have SP variants?

No, but they're actually quite good for radiators (according to Singularity Computers, he uses them in near enough every build).

 

I have a large amount of rad space, so even though they're not the best SP fans, they should still do well.
