Bertha 2.0 (Modded Prodigy with 520MM of radiator)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Come on an adventure  :) This is my first go at watercooling and I don't think I'm ever going back to using air! Here we have Bertha 2.0 (after getting bored with Bertha 1.0 of course). Composed of a modded prodigy with a shroud (obviously not an idea I saw watching SingularityComputers  :P ), 520mm of radiator and some cable sleeving. More below.

Cable Management in a Prodigy WITH tubes everywhere = worst thing ever. Must say, it wasn't a half bad job. I'm still going to have nightmares about it. Good thing I'm not posting a pic of behind the GPU!

A bit more detail on the parts:

 

Case parts:

Bitfenix prodigy (Modded front panel) + shroud (installed by yours truly) + Modded Power button + Hole in the bottom (to fit a radiator) All this done with a trusty dremel.

2 Corsair SP120 fans for intake and 2 NB fans up top for exhaust (Notice how the rings are nice and green)

Some Bitfenix presleeved extenders (Hate all you want, that took effort to manage in the back since these things gotta attach to the original cables)

 

PC parts:

CPU: 4770K

Mobo: ASUS Z87I-Deluxe (took a lot of patience to get one of these)

RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance (Couldn't find the vengeance pro GOLD)

SSD: 128GB Samsung 840 PRO (wish I could get one of those evos)

HDD: 750GB WD Caviar black

GPU: EVGA GTX 780 (bow chicka wow wow)

PSU: Corsair AX860

 

Watercooling parts:

Resevoir: Swiftech micro res

Pump+CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee drive II (Believe me, you need to save as much space as possible in there)

GPU waterblock: EK titan something or other

Radiator(s): 240MM and 280MM black ice stealth (520 in a prodigy WOOT WOOT :D )

Fittings: Monsoon free center compression fittings (gold to match the mobo of course)

Tubing: Primochill advanced LRT Atomic UV green (I even used the included Sysprep, I'll keep this spot updated with any plasticizer issues I hope to not have) I also got 2 bitspower 90 degree fittings that I like to ignore

Coolent: Primochill Ice intensified (UV Brite Green)

Sorry, these are extenders from Bitfenix. I do recommend them if you don't mind the shame as they do look pretty slick (pun intended)

I thought about it but once you get painting things that big it takes a bit more experience that I don't have yet. There is no way I topped singularity though :p this was inspired by his build

cooookies you say? *raiseseyebrowatpeekedintrest*

last time I was offered cookies was from a sketchy website I probably shouldn't have been on...

I suppose you have done the name Bertha justice and with that I grant you knight status.

this is still Bertha 2.0. great looking build :D

Thanks!! The whole UV purple look was actually chosen so I'd have an excuse to grab a ducky keyboard haha but it turned out pretty well

 

BTW to anyone reading: added a few more higher quality pics to the original post above

The build looks really amazing, and I'm surprised you don't want to water cool again.
