Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

  • - Bio-Hazard - Watercooled HAF X System

    Hello all,

    It's been a really long time since I last stopped by this forum, how is everyone doing? The main reason I have stopped coming here is because I have stopped building custom PCs due to financial constraints, but also due to the lack of ground breaking/revolutionary components out there (basically I meant that there is nothing new to play around with other than new CPUs or Mobos or GPUs or Mods, etc that have been around before). I've diverted most of my attention to smartphones lately too. However, today I was going through some of my old pics and stumbled upon a build I have made years back that I never shared with the world. This is the last build I've done so far, until the time comes when I will merge my old Bloodlust build with my Euphoria build in an attempt to resurrect my X58 system.

    To be honest, I have forgotten some of the components used in this build. I don't even recall what GPU's I used in this build, so if anybody can identify them, please let me know lol.

    With that, here are some of the specs:

    Hardware:

    CPU: Intel i7 950
    Mobo: MSI X58 Big Bang XPower
    Ram:12GB (3x4GB) Patriot Sector 7 Extreme Performance DDR3-1600
    GPU: Unknown (Could not remember)
    PSU: BFG 1200 watt
    SSD: OCZ Agility 120GB
    HDD: Samsung 1TB
    Case: CM HAF X
    Fan controller: Aerocool Touch 2000

    Water-cooling Components:

    CPU Block - Swiftech Apogee GTZ
    GPU Block - Unknown
    Rad 1 - Swiftech 240mm
    Rad 2 & 3 - Swiftech 120mm
    Reservoir - Danger Den Rad Reservoir
    Pump - Danger Den CPX1
    Fluid - Feser One Green
    Tube - Primochill 1/2" ID 3/4" OD

    And now, the pics:





























    I apologize for the somewhat blurry or not sharp images. These were taken with an old camera and not the one I used to use for my other builds. Hopefully all you will enjoy this latest build I did. Thanks for looking

    P.S. It's great being back and posting here again. Hopefully, I will get to start my next build. Currently just waiting for a good case to use

    I'm not a huge fan of the HAF, but I'm always a sucker for a build thread. Nice and clean!
    I am the epitome of a cynical, sarcastic sysadmin. For this, I make no apologies.

      Thanks Juan! Yeah, I'm never really a fan of the HAF series, but I'm quite ok with this one. Well, if everything goes smoothly, hopefully by the end of next week I will have a new build to post here I am desperately trying to get a hold of either a Carbide 400R or 500R case but I'm trying to sell off my CM 690 II case first hehe.

          Nice! I like that fan control touch panel. If I had 1) money 2) time and 3) energy I would play with making a build or three

            Looks really nice, how long ago did you build it?
            I really want a reservoir like that, but attached to an mcp655, I think it could look pretty awesome.
            Looking forward to seeing your next build

                Thank you everyone! Suavey, that build was done about a year and a half ago. Yeah, I love cylindrical res. They really look nice by showing off the liquid you are using

                Btw, you know those kind of reservoirs for MCP655 exist rite? Here's two of them:

                  I haven't found a cylindrical reservoir's that will just attach to an mcp655. When I get a new pump, I will be looking very hard for a cylindrical res.

                      @anti- LOL! Thanks man. It's great to be back. I have another build that I'm trying to work out, but I'm waiting for some funds to flow in first and some parts to come before starting. I really hope I can get everything that I need to get this build started soon. As usual, it won't be something drastically new. 90% of the parts will be 'recycled' from my old components. I just wanted to reuse my hardware that's left lying around. I'm also desperately trying to find a good mid-tower case to put this all together.
