Default Carnage - TJ11 Project

Posted a few images on other sites before and somehow missed this one. I am in the final stages of this project and should have it completed within the month (unless I add more stuff). I've never done a proper build log before so bare with me here.

Step 1 - Unboxing and picures of TJ11
Step 2 - Painting the fans

Step 3 - Setup and test watercooling
Step 4 - Final adjustments and overclocking

Current list of components :

Case : Silverstone Temjin 11
PSU : Silverstone Strider 1200w
Motherboard : Evga P67 ftw
CPU : i5 2500k
RAM : 8gb Samsung 30nm
GPU : Sapphire 7970 HD
SSD : Patriot Wildfire 120gb
HDD : Seagate (I think) 1.5tb
Sound card : Sound Blaster Titanium HD
Fans : GT 2150's

Watercooling components :

EK 7970 GPU block /w backplate
XSPC 360mm Radiator (/w gt 2150s)

Tygon 3/8" ID 1/2" OD
EK Blood Red Coolant (might switch to ice dragon)
Monsoon chrome fittings
Misc screws
Reservoir
Pump



To be ordered :

MDPCX Sleeving
560mm radiator
CPU Block
Stickers for GT 2150 backs


Got everything I can think of listed above (other than sleeving) in my cart at PPC so just waiting for pay day then I can get this thing about wrapped up. Might try and shoot some emails out beforehand though and see if I can't maybe pick up a sponsor or two. Had FTW PC sponsor me but lack of communication kind of threw me off dealing with him further so I changed up my build a bit (basically no response in 6 months if you think I was being impatient :p).

Reserved for TJ11 pics






Top down view

I love removable mobo trays

My old setup

Removeable dust filters, smart

Excuse the dirty cable management

If only I add more of these..

Curious cat

Dusty ram

Will remember to clean everything first next time I try doing closeups


Will have more pics once I am finished the build. Might redo a bunch of the pics and try and make a better setup next time (needed a bigger backsplash).

After a LONG wait, I finally got these a few months ago. Ordered 16 but will probably only use 11 or so, plus one broke during painting (don't drink and paint).





Putting on connectors :




Black satin and Red pepper something krylon :






Looks much better after the black krylon :



So much win :



Finished product :




Should be ordering 40-50m or so of mdpcx sleeving this week and have some more pictures of these once I sleeve them all

Thanks, finished posting most of my pics now (have more but most are just same thing, different angle).

PPCs should have the rotary monsoons by the end of the week so I will probably snag a few of those as well. My buddy (seen spraypainting fans) has monsoons as well and they look pretty cool. He told me to try and get the chrome since he thinks his matte ones aren't as black. I'm hoping USPS left my package at the Canada post office near my house so I can just pick up that tomorrow (if they did) so if I get them should have a few more pics up to add to the watercooling section. Currently just have a quick pick I took with my cellphone.

Only thing I am unsure of right now is if I should add some leds since it is kind of dark in the case (thinking of getting a 12inch white light bar or something).

Edit : That reminds me, I still haven't even removed the blue leds on the top/side of the case. Guess I should switch those out with red ones.

Edit 2 : Ordered 50m MDPCX this morning

30m ColorX 20m Black, as well as heatshrink and a few other things, of course.

Welcome to the TJ11 club

I am really glad I bought this case myself.

Take care of those fittings. I've read somewhere they scratch easily.
