    Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    Index:

    1. GPU Block, tubing, general = this post
    2. 800D arrives, unboxing, more 800D, yet more 800D
    3. Size comparison between Lian Li A05, CM690, 800D
    4. Aircooled build transfer and temperature readings
    5. WC gear arrives
    6. CPU block and GPU block install, in case
    7. Tapping the radiator to M4
    8. Most of the loop done (Waiting for compression collar)
    9. Drive bay stealthing


    /index






    I finally decided to leap into watercooling proper, my current rig is as follows:

    i7 860 under an NH-U12P SE2
    MSI P55 GD65
    4GB 2000mhz GSkill RipJaw
    80GB Intel G2 SSD
    500GB WD AAKS
    640GB WD AAKS
    250GB WD AAKs
    250GB WD AAKs
    EVGA SSC GTX260 216 55nm
    Corsair HX620w
    CM 690

    And being recycled are:

    i7 860
    MSI P55 GD65
    4GB 2000mhz GSkill RipJaw
    80GB Intel G2 SSD
    500GB WD AAKS
    640GB WD AAKS
    250GB WD AAKs
    250GB WD AAKs
    EVGA SSC GTX260 216 55nm
    Corsair HX620w
    Noctua's (need a colour change though....)

    In addition to:

    EK FC260 GTX
    XSPC Rasa
    PA120.3 (15mm)
    Laing DDC Ultra 18w
    XSPC dual bay res (single DDC)
    Corsair 800D
    Fittings
    1/2 ID 3/4 OD tubing, blue


    Now the first thing that is going to annoy me is the PSU... It has a red label on it... everything else is blue/black so i'll have to fix that...

    So first actual thing to note is that everything is still in the post, well... Almost everything...

    I have my GFX block, EK FC-260GTX with the Acetal top (black to match the rest of the build):





    The barbs will be gone in favour of black compression fittings

    Nice and flat (and shiny):



    So the second thing i already have gathering dust is the tubing:

    This picture doesn't really show the colour well:



    This one shows it better:




    No dye going near my loop... (Well apart from Vinyl dye to *fix* the Noctuas)

    The 800D is on it's way (Dabs, surprisingly) so should be here between now and Fri, and Specialtech's (again, surprisingly) load shouldn't take too long hopefully

    It's go time!

    Taktak, care to tell me how much you spent (roughly) on the watercooling parts? Ive a basic WC setup now but after i recieve my grant I will be using it to fund a new gpu and other components, one possible upgrade would be the WC setup so im interested .

    Re: Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    My bill with SpecialTech (would have put it Toms way but there were a few things out of stock , same with watercoolingUk, and watercooledpcs was dead) is:

    £ 252.57, for (copy/paste ):

    Thermochill PA120.3 360 Radiator with 15mm Fan Spacing #9300

    XSPC Rasa CPU Waterblock for Intel 775, 1366, 1156 : RASA #11537

    Laing DDC-1+ Ultra Pump 600 L/hr 18W (MCP355) : DDC-1+ T #3179

    XSPC 5.25" Dual Drive Bay Reservoir for One Laing DDC Pump Multi Fascia : DDCBAYONE #9974

    3/8" Thread Compression Fitting for 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD Tubing : Black Nickel #11208

    1/4" Thread 45° Rotary Compression Fitting for 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD (13-19mm) Tubing : Black #11394

    1/4" Thread Compression Fitting for 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD Tubing : Black Nickel #11206

    Re: Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    Holy crap thats alot of cash .

    Is the Thermochill PA120.3 really that good? Cause £70 for a brand new one is a lot, i know thermochill have a good rep so i assume this beats almost everything? Are the XSPC ones (that £40) acceptable?.

    Make sure you do a full system temp test, because if its good then I will have to keep an eye out for second hand parts of these floating on ebay .

    The Thermochill excels in terms of low restriction, and has overall performance in terms of robustness with fans used, in that low static pressure will still reap decent results, but as Fraz rightly says, the XSPC RX360 pulls slightly ahead while using lower static pressure, i'm not 100% sure but i think the RX is more restrictive too

    The RS and the Lite are ~ half the width of the PA120.3 and RX, so if you're strapped for space then they are a good option, however your best performance will come from the RX's or PA120.3, and don't even bother with feser

    It's not so much as the Thermochill beats everything (it is right near the top though) but it is very well rounded , plus it's English , Steve Verity used to own them until not too long ago, yet another top bloke

    And yep, temps will be on the cards, obviously not very scientific as i'll be moving cases at the same time as well and i won't have another rad to compare with.

    The main cost is the Rad, CPU block and Pump (well, that's basically all of the loop ) and that is where your performance is, if you skimp you will lose some potential cooling (it may well not be that much, but it's still a loss )


    I want my deliveries

    Re: Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    I want my grant and to be given my second job now.... then id be able to afford this setup xD. If i manage to land this second job ill have about 1.5 grand after my birthday in july and so will blow it on this and all the new stuff.

    Need to find a suitable case, how much was the 800D? £150? Let me know what you think of it because if the above does happen i may well go all the way and replace this case i modded because a quad rad wont fit xD.

    Higher

    £210

    I wanted the TYR X2000F, but knowing Lian Li, it'll be ~£380

    Re: Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    Ouch, it does look like the best case though and since cases last years I feel its worth the investment. I have a case thats like 10 years old and is being used to this date (after just over a year with a cm690 xD).

    Yeh the TYR X2000F will be expensive and looks the part, typical Lian li .

    A case that i was really hoping to get as the corsair one is a bit to much for me was the silverstone black raven, but i found out that its a crap case for WC... too small although i love the concept .

    The Thermochill PA and RX360 are two of the least restrictive radiators on the market. The Thermochill is less restrictive, but only slightly .

    Re: Corsair 800D, Watercooled log

    Eeee gads, just rebuilt into the 800D, came to boot up and get boot manager missing, fiddle around to get my SSD working, BSOD everytime it gets to the windows logo fiddle some more, remove the overclock, try to reboot and nothing, keeps trying, and again until the BIOS decides it has failed and chucks up an error sayign overclock failed, then starts trouble shooting and floppy failure... Eh?

    But it now seems to have fixed itself during the trouble shooting phase so quids in

    WC stuff should be here tomorrow then i can make a start, but first piccys of the beast...

    It seems that the case gods were kind to me and it arrived without damage via DHL (cheers Dabs)


    This thing is HUUUUUUGE:



    And no... I don't have novelty sized furniture

    More pics in a bit when they've uploaded
