I work for Elite PC Designs LLC. Today I finally got around to building my own extreme PC from home. I recently ordered all my parts from our current hardware vendor. Ive been building PC's for the past few years for this company but never got around to building a PC of my own. This thread will show my journey from start to finish, hope you guys enjoy and please do give me some feedback!

I will uploade the build video in a few days showing the process and overall product!

System components:

6. ASUS Rampage IV Formula LGA 2011
7. LG Super Multo BD Drive BD-CD-DVD RW
8. Thermaltake Toughpower XT TPX-1475M 1475W ATX PSU

Water Cooling Components:

1. Swiftech MCP655 Special Edition 12 VDC Pump With Speed Controller
2. Black Ice SR1 420 Radiator Series
3. Swiftech APOGEE HD Ultimate Extreme Performance Water Block
4. PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Green Tubing
5. Feser One F1 Cooling Fluid - UV Green
6. EK-Multioption RES X2 - 150
7. 12" Cathode Light Kit Sleeved - Green

I am pretty sure that this belongs in the build logs thread so if a mod could move this.

yo just a heads up...if you don't want your res/tubes dyed and gunk build up in your system...DON'T use that premix.
i promise you will regret putting that stuff in a month or two down the road.

i tell everybody this: If you want color, use Mayhem's Dyes with a biocide
either that or only do colored tubing
Mayhems is top of the line in...they are the Ferrari of liquid dyes

back to the topic...looks like a fun build man
you should also look into optimizing your windows install to keep all the junk user stuff from wating space on your SSD if you already haven't
take read through this guide: Sean's Windows 7 Optimization for SSD's

gl man...can't wait to see what this looks like

Ack... FESER liquid. Maybe you should head over to the WC forum and read the millions of 'don't use it' replies and read what we use. Maybe you should pass it on to your company you work for. FESER is clogging-loop bad stuff.

Interesting build...

PSU = MASSIVE overkill for the rig listed... add 2 more 7970's and still not use 1KW.....
3820 = doesnt overclock outside of bclk (whats so extreme about not overclocking barely any?).. with that, wasted a ton of cash on the motherboard.
dye in your loop = Ouch, what other people said.

Peculiar build.

@ Horrorblade... you can report the thread with the "!" icon to get it moved as the OP cant do it, and mods dont remotely read all threads.

Heads up guys, I didnt buy the Thermaltake powersupply for its "overkill" wattage, I bought it because it's the quietest PSU out in the market. The fans dont even turn on unless your doing something very demanding, it doesnt even turn on during games.

I'd suggest selling that processor and getting one of the K models.

You can do that with a lesser PSU as well.. Seasonic X series comes to mind. X560 would do that. It didnt spin up when I used a 4.5Ghz 2600k (which uses more power than your stuck at stock 3830) and a GTX580 (which uses more power than a 7970).

looks like a pretty sweet build il be watching, not trying to be rude but id have done a little more research before dumping that kind of money into a rig. like others have mentioned having a crazy water cooled build is kind of pointless if you cant overclock could have a silent air cooling solution instead.

still should look pretty bada$$

edit: pretty sure i just peed my pants a little when i seen the price on that case.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...0Series%20TJ11

If you have the money, the case is great. I'd rather have the 3930K processor though.

Nah, its one sweet case. Not really in agreement with the PSU though, a Kingwin Platinum would be a better PSU and the fan also doesn't turn on until you really push it. Agree regarding the choice of CPU with the others too. A K series would be faster.
