So, here we are LinusTech forums, the personal thread of my personal dream build.
It is called the Enforcer V3. V3 as in MK3, this is the third instance of it.

 

Specs:

  • Case: Corsair 900D
  • PSU: Corsair AX1200i w/ Sleeved Cables
  • Mobo: Asus X99-A(1)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 5930K
  • Ram: G-Skill Ripjaws4 DDR4 4x4GB 2400Mhz (Black)
  • GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 295X2  -
  • HDD: Western Digital Red 3TB(2)
  • SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 512GB x2(2)

WaterLoop (ARRIVING SOON)

  • Radiator1: EK-CoolStream PE 480 (Quad)
  • Radiator2: EK-CoolStream PE 360 (Triple)
  • Pump: EK-DCP 4.0 PWM (12V DC PWM Pump)
  • Reservoir: XSPC Photon 270(3)
  • WB CPU: EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel (Black)
  • WB GPU: EK-FC R9-295X2 - Acetal+Nickel + EK-FC R9-295X2 Backplate - Black
  • Fittings: EK-CSQ Fitting 10/16mm G1/4 - Black (x12)
  • Adapters:  EK-AF Angled 45° G1/4 Black (x12)
  • Coolant: EK-Ekoolant UV BLUE (premix 1000mL)
  • Tubing: TUBE PrimoChill PrimoFlex™ Advanced LRT™ 15,9 / 9,5mm - Crystal Clear (3m)
  • Fans: Corsair SP120 High Performance (x7)

Other:

  • Thermal Paste: Arctic Cooling MX-2
  • Fan Header: EK-Cable Splitter 4-Fan PWM Extended(4) (x2)
  • PSU Bridge: EK-ATX Bridging Plug (24 pin)(5)

Additional Notes:
(1) - "Why no X99-Deluxe ZOMG Republic of Gamers FTW KINGPING Edition?" - Because I render the extra stuff in the Deluxe useless. Price is high and a lot of the things in that board I won't use. X99-A is just the perfection. Cheapo version of X99-WS
(2) - Actually re-purposed from the Enforcer V2 I am still using (up until I sell it to my friend)
(3) - Christmas is almost here, and couriers stop working. I wanna make this before christmas, therefore I had to face a number of issues, especially with shipping. Thing is, the Reservoir I wanted from ekwb isn't in stock anymore so I had to fall back to the only possible option (Amazon, 1 day shipping). That glass reservoir is kinda interesting, looks good. The only thing that bugs me is that I've heard both good and very very bad things about it, especially about the plastic holes on the bottom. We'll see.
(4) - This is just a cheapo way of powering the SP120 - one sata per four of those fans. (is that enough actually? It also has a 4pin header to connect to the mobo. Will connect that too. @Question)
(5) - Paranoia. That should answer ALL of your questions.
 
 
 
...to be continued. STAY TUNED! Parts are coming soon. Then, It'll be build time!

How much your custom water cooling kit costs? @matetx2012

 

NOT considering shipping, everything but the Reservoir and the fans costs me 700€. ( 870$)

The fans and the reservoir alone (from another website) costs me around 180€. ( ~ 225 $)

So we're talking at about 1000$.

Is it worth it in long term usage?

I am doing this because it looks freaky damn cool and this is my dream machine.

 

Yeah, I think so. If you build it right aside from changing your liquid every so often and doing some monthly inspections you'd be good to go.

Surely I prefer giving my 5930k three well-made 120 radiator spaces instead of just one/two AIO..."okay" thingy.

The quad monster if for the dual gpu behemoth, of course.

So any estimates on when your parts will come in? Looking forward to this.

 

Am gonna buy the whole watercooling thingy on Monday (hopefully.), it should arrive on the 17-18th, even though it says 1day shipping.

The other stuff I'm 100% sure it's gonna be here on the 18th (Amazon Prime)

Question for you followers.

Do you think It'll be a sin for me NOT to get sleeved coloured cables? Main scheme (tubes and everything) is going to be blue, and I'm having trouble finding those with one day shipping.

 

I mean, I'm going to use the AX1200i, the stock braided cables don't look half bad... right?

Getting the whole custom thingy would be as pricey and difficult (if not, more) than getting the pre-made ones.

I guess I could compensate with some leds.

Well, you only need a few tools. It's just super time consuming haha. Lucky for me I guess, the store near my house has military grade paracord that's pretty cheap. Plus they always have a 50% off one item coupon out. :D

Aside from that, honestly though, blue corsair cables look kinda... meh.

I found those though, that look sexy as f***, what do you think? Perhaps I could get a white 24pin or just go with blue for that one.

 

Remember: Liquid colour is going to be blue and I have acrilic waterblocks, so it's gonna be pretty blue. I also added to the cart two blue cold cathodes led - gonna add them soon.

The corsair stock one will look fine haha, I was just messing with you. :P that pretty blue better be pretty.

Too bad you're not using rigid tubes, that would look awesome.

I could... but I don't have the right tools (and the confidence) to try such a feat.

After all, it's my first waterloop build. I'm still sporting a pleb-tier H60 with single stock fan here. :P

 

EDIT: I just realized I didn't even show what I was talking about in the previous post eariler.

The case is letting this build down


Specs: 4790k | Asus Z-97 Pro Wifi | MX100 512GB SSD | NZXT H440 Plastidipped Black | Dark Rock 3 CPU Cooler | MSI 290x Lightning | EVGA 850 G2 | 3x Noctua Industrial NF-F12's

Bought a powermac G5, expect a mod log sometime in 2015

Corsair is overrated, and Anime is ruined by the people who watch it
