My System Specs

Default Switch 810 Matte Black

So I wanted to upgrade my case for something a bit bigger since my 600T is a little too small for my liking

Bought a NZXT Switch 810 for its watercooling option, going full tower compared to mid tower, needed a bit of color change since I had white for a while, now going back to black.

After some searching on a new motherboard while trying to keep the 1155 socket so I didn't have to change my cpu since my 2500K @ 5.0Ghz doesn't give me any trouble, I fell on kirbster FS thread which had a Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force for a very good price, so now my theme will be Orange / Black.


Parts In hand :

NZXT Switch 810 Matte Black
EKWB Acetal HD6990
1/2 3/4 Tubing
XSPC 2 Bay Res with DDC Pump or Koolance RP-452x2 with 2x D5 in redundance
TFC 1/2 Compression Fittings
XSPC RASA / Orange LED
Gigabyte Z87X-OC Force

On Order :

Intel Core i5 4670K
Mayhem Pastel Orange
NZXT FZ-140mm Orange LED ( Not the best Static pressure but need them Quiet + Orange LED ) 12 of them on order !
Bitspower Z Tank 150mm Clear
XSPC EX420
XSPC Orange 3mm LED
XSPC Acetal Top D5
XSPC 280 / 420 Fan Gasket

To Order :

2x 8GB Ram, 1600+ hoping for Orange or Black Heatsink ( Any suggestion on Best Bang for Buck )



If anyone has tips or suggestions on anything please fell free :)

Finished !

should I just go with a 420mm and 280mm rad or add a 140mm extra on the rear ?

i5 4670K + 6990 both overclocked, 4670K around 4.5 if it takes it and 6990 @ 910 / 1300

The extra 140mm likely won't have any affect on water temperatures. But it really depends on your fan speeds.

I can't comment on if they are good radiator fans but I still believe the extra 140mm radiator won't have any affect.
