Project Omega (900D Build)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

So, this is my first proper high end build, and my first foray into watercooling. My current rig was a pre made custom rig, and I've upgraded everything in it. The only thing left is the hard drive :D

Current Build (Upd. 12/06/2013)

900D Concept:

I'll be going for a white alternative to that instead of green now. ;)

External Power Switch:

The case will be at the back of the room behind the desk, so for ease of access i am building up an external power switch using a spare PCI bracket, some buttons and a stereo cable between the PC and the box.

When the cable in the back is removed, the circuit breaks and gives functionality back to the case power and reset.

Ok, started my first attempt at sleeving a spare cable...

P1000583thumb.JPG

P1000584thumb.JPG

:( But it failed!

Yeah... I put it too close to the hob and melted the plastic lol. I did better on the other side though.

P1000585thumb.JPG

P1000586thumb.JPG

TBC...

And here it comes...

11/06/2013 and earlier

Headset arrives! (With the 3.5mm cable for the power thingy :D)

Haribo!

One of these is mine :D

And here it is!

It's Massive!

PSU and SSD Arrive too.

Speakers came a while back:

And it emerges out of the box from whence it came!

P1000576thumb.JPG

P1000577thumb.JPG

P1000578thumb.JPG

Placed on my desk.

P1000582thumb.JPG

P1000587thumb.JPG

P1000588thumb.JPG

The box takes up half of my room. Nowhere else to put it yet though... It doesn't even fit through the door to the loft where everything else is kept. :P

P1000589thumb.JPG

Shiny fans

P1000594thumb.JPG

"Installed" the PSU and the SSD

P1000595thumb.JPG

P1000596thumb.JPG

I "Stole" some grommets from my CM 690 II :D They fit exactly as I hoped. When i cover up all the unused holes, these will do nicely for the 8pins to hide the open holes at the top.

P1000597thumb.JPG

I think I'll look for some sleeving for the PSU next while I wait for the motherboard that I want to be released :D

Update: 19/06/2013

A few changes to my build:

I'll be doing for a black background as usual with white as a secondary colour, but adding orange highlights. I can get a cheaper board now that is still good, and fits in with the colour scheme. I can also use the orange square on my SSD. This adds a splash of warmth to the build :D

I got my sleeving and utilities and a 4pin extension to test on.

here's the "before" shot:

P1000599a.JPG

The ATX pin remover tool

P1000600thumb.JPG

Unfortunately it didn't manage to remove a single pin... So I picked up some paperclips and made my own tool :P

P1000601thumb.JPG

measuring the wire length for sleeving

P1000611thumb.JPG

voila!

P1000612thumb.JPG

Managed to stick on the ends and stop them fraying with contact adhesive. Let's see if it lasts

P1000615thumb.JPG

All sleeved! Looks better than I first expected. (I have orange and white heat shrink as a backup)

P1000616thumb.JPG

P1000617thumb.JPG

P1000618thumb.JPG

The money shot:

P1000626thumb.JPG

I also got some larger grommets as an alternative at the top. Big thanks to ToxicTBag (Tony)! (OCUK)

 :D I've probably had about 50 packets from them so far!

 

I got 5% discount from those three things that i've just got from a 20k subscribers offer that was on at the end of last month, and i get 3% cashback as well from every order + free next day shipping + haribo so it's a no brainer where to buy from really :D

Build log Updated with more photos:

Started cable braiding

Changed build colours to orange, white and black for more flexibility.

I'll try to work on the other side of the switch and get that finished off :P

Sorry about the lack of updates recently. The camera is away at the moment, so there should be some new piccys up next week :D

I have my 4770k, Z87-OC, a 480GB vertex 2e that I got of offer for steam games, and my GTX 780 :D

 

Memory is on it's way. I've had a special order placed with OCUK for some 2x8GB orange teamgroup memory (2133mhz)

Started writing a reply earlier but it got lost :(

Finally an update with pictures after a while :)

I have some new hardware since the last time, and i've done a test built to check everything out.

I have:

Intel Core i7 4770k

Aquacomputer Aquaero 5

Aquacomputer Aquastream XT Ultra

8x Scythe GT 1850

2x XSPC AX480

OCZ Vertex 2e 480gb

Gainward Nvidia GTX 780

Gigabyte Z87X-OC

I'm still sleeving the cables, but the ones that are done look great so far :D

I ordered 2 Liquid Fusion 250mm reservoirs from FrozenQ with custom white tubes and white LED's so they should arrive sometime this month hopefully.

Here are the pics then :)

The motherboard backplate; Nice and squishy on the back, and doesn't have the metal still there from being punched like the cheaper boards do.

All that's left now is the waterblocks, fittings, tubing and coolant to be ordered, the reservoirs to arrive, the other side of the power button to be finished, the carbon fibre finish and covering for the unused areas, fan painting, and the rest of the cable sleeving :D

Quite a way yet, but hopefully i can finish by the end of the summer :D
