My System Specs

Default Mayhem Inc.


Here is the list of parts for this build that I will be using.

Hardware:

Motherboard: Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC SLI
Primary Hard Drive: Mushkin Chronos 120GB SSD SATA3
Secondary Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB SATA2
Optical Drive: LG 24X DVD-RW
Power Supply: Corsair AX850
Case: Bitfenix Shinobi XL Window


Water Cooling:

CPU Block: XSPC RayStorm
GPU Block: XSPC RayStorm Universal
Radiator: XSPC RS360 & RS240
Pump: DazMode Storm DDC with EK-DDC X-TOP Plex
Reservoir: Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 250
Fans: Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP-15 x 5
Fittings: Various compression fittings - Black Nickel

I did a mock up the build outside the case. There is obviously no water cooling parts setup and the power supply is not hooked up. I have posted a few pics.







It will be quite sometime before the build is complete and I will be documenting it every step of the way. So stay tuned for more updates.

I haven't decided yet, At first I was thinking the black case but that might change to the white one.

Thanks. It's going to go nice and slow. The next thing I'm getting is the case and some odds and ends, like more extension cables, 5.25 to 3.5" HDD adapter and another 8GB of Corsair Vengeance in red.

Thanks guys. I am thinking about switching it up. Putting the red ones in the black slots and the black ones in the red slots.
