Default Watercooled Black Prodigy

Well this is my first real work log of a pc that I've ever done..so it's bound to be all over the place with content. I don't have a lot of free time anymore...so the build will be slow as parts and free time arise.

I saw various prodigy builds online and really liked the idea of a smaller unit on my desk rather then the monsters I've had over the past few years taking up all of underneath my desk. The other huge deciding factor was the youngest boy in the house absolutely loves to press buttons andmake things turn off and on..so the case on the floor had to go.

Parts I already purchased

Black Bitfenix prodigy
i7 3770k
Asus P8Z77-I DELUXE
2 x 120 GB Crucial M4's
Corsair Vengance 2 x 4 GB DDR3 1866 (thanks Soul!)
Zotac GTX 670 (thanks 3.0)
Phobya 200mm rad
DDC3.1 (Soul again!)
CoolerMaster silent hybrid pro 1050w psu
EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy - Nickel

Parts ordered
EK Water Blocks EK-DDC X-RES 100 CSQ - Acetal
Ek Water Blocks Fluid UV Blue NON-CONDUCTIVE Water Replacement
Bitfenix Prodigy Black Window Side Panel cause i am lazy
Bitfenix Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-14025KK-RP All Black 140MM
Bitfenix Spectre Pro BFF-SPRO-20025KK-RP All Black 200MM Case Fan


Parts to be decided on

240mm rad or single 140 mm rad
Full cover EK block or universal EK GPU block
and whether or not to use my coolit elite on the i7
and possibly looking at the indigo extreme tim...really up in the air about it

Some quick pics...cell phone pics atm
had to remove the front of the psu cage...to allow the psu to fit...shortened the 24 pin and the 8 pin and drilled new holes for the phobya to mount to the case rather then the fan..
Have a lot more to do...relocate the power switch..possibly sleeve the wires,file down the cut I made,mount the pump and res if it shows and possibly make a drain port
