    Post Dangal's MurderMod

    "Gemin-Cide"


    The above name is latin for Double-Murder - which seemed appropriate considering the context of the build. Thanks to BlueAqua for the idea!!


    Now before I get into the meat of this log I would like to point out that the worklog concept is still fairly new to me so if I get a little ahead of myself feel free to ask me to clarify whatever it is you want to know


    So without further ado I would like to thank the following sponsors of this build:

    My Credit Card
    My loving partner!

    - No.....really.....as without these two none of this would have happened!



    A Quick Background

    So where to begin....ah yes the beginning usually is a good spot I suppose - Well I stumbled on XS in the later half of last year whilest doing some research on a replacement mb for my trusty old P5W DH deluxe that had decided to go to silicon heaven. What an eye opener this place was....never had I seen so many builds that surpassed anything I had ever imagined! Plus the great thing was there was just so much info for every aspect on building/maintaining one's pc...To say that I am addicted is probably an understatement.

    Well with all this new found knowledge I decided that it was time for a change - I had just purchased the Maximus Formula which had the integrated NB waterblock and I decided to give it a go! Originally I was only going to cool the cpu and NB using the stock block but after spending lots of time in the MF watercooling thread and reading how by changing the stock block for an aftermarket one my temps would be considerably better and I thought well if I am going to do this - do it properly. So I built my first wc pc which consisted of a CPU, NB and SB block all running through a single PA120.3 rad in the bottom of a brand new TJ07! Before you ask why was there no GPU in that - well I had been using the 2900xt and knew that I wasnt really happy with it so I was going to wait for something else before adding that to the loop.

    Here are some pics I took with my camera phone months ago when I put this together...









    As previously mentioned alot of the hardware I already had on hand from when I built this machine originally however a few pieces had found their way into the Cosmos S build I did for my partner such as the Q6600 and the hdd's.

    So I had to decide on some new toys....always love the shopping for new parts feeling! Basically I had to decide what I wanted more out of this machine and as it is primarily going to be used for gaming I decided (after reading a few threads and creating one of my own!) to get a dual core and oc a bit as most games still prefer a higher clock than more cores.

    Enter this little thing (which coincidentally marks the introduction of my watermark for this build...not that you probably care )




    And this!! (which is not really little )




    This leads nicely into...

    Hardware to be used for this build:

    Case: Silverstone TJ07 Black
    PSU: Silverstone ST85F
    Processor: Intel E8600
    Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula
    RAM: Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800Mhz 1GB x 4
    Graphics: HIS HD4870x2
    HDD: 1TB samsung HD103UJ
    Optical: Pioneer SATA DVDRW
    OS: Vista Home Premium 64bit


    The watercooling hardware:

    CPU Block: D-Tek FuZion V1
    GPU Block: EK 4870x2 block
    NB Block: EK-NB-SMAX
    Rads: Thermochill PA120.3 and 120.2 Radiators
    Pump: 2 x DDC3.2 + xspc Reservoir tops
    Barbs: Bitspower Fatboy 1/2" barbs
    Tubing: Tygon R3400 3/8 5/8 tubing

    And some pics of the hardware:

    Note that the SB is not going to be used in this build - but I had decided this after fitting the CPU and NB blocks to the MB with tubing so unfortunately I dont have any more pics





    These will be required for the two rads in the bottom of the case - now of course Bitspower have released parts recently that do the same thing but I bought these months ago before there was any talk of new ones from BP



    Ok that is probably enough for the first post as I do not want to overload you with info/pics so early in the build Be sure to tune in next time where things will really start to get a move on

    Looks really good Dangals!!

    What are you using to cool the southbridge?

    Those barbs in the picture with your blocks really look good. I want some.

    How come every TJ07 build I see needs the support of their credit cards?

    What are your planned mods??

    Nice Dengals...just charge the CC and deal with the consequences later!

    Just a tip on the EK NB block, get your tubing and clamps/zip ties on before mounting, the wide thumb nuts come in contact with the tubing. I can explain better next time we chat, but wanted to let you know now.

    another great build coming up!
    looking forward to your updates dangals.

    and skinnee is right, the ek nb block retention nuts would get in the way of the clamps.
    like mine (hehe).. i mounted the nb before putting in the tubes and clamps.
    the tube was ok, just need more force to push it in... but the clamps are over the retention nuts

    Yeah - all I can say is that it takes a little bit of hot water and a lot of elbow grease - no need for clamps with these barbs

    I hear that - I used the same setup on my first build and the only way I got the tubing off when I striped it down was with a razor blade
