Project Open Core: Build Components

I am simplifying the liquid cooling loops compared to my last two builds, as I am no longer going to be running SLI.  With a single GPU (GTX 1080) I will be using 1 loop to cool the CPU, Motherboard, and GPU.

Here is the Component List:

  • Case: Thermaltake Core P5 Open Air Case
  • Power Supply: Corsair AX1200
  • Motherboard: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII Formula
  • Motherboard Block: EK Integrated Crosschill MOSFET cooler
  • CPU: Intel i7 6700K
  • CPU Block: EK-Supremacy EVO Nickel
  • RAM: 32GB Corsair Dominator DDR4 @ 3200MHz
  • GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 (SC, SSC, FTW… waiting for release to know for sure)
  • GPU Block:  EK 1080 Acrylic + Nikle (not yet released) 
  • Sound Card: SupremeFX 2015 (On-board)
  • Hard Drive 1: Samsung Pro 950 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD (Operating System & Programs)
  • Hard Drive 2: Samsung Evo 1TB SSD (Games & Steam Installs)
  • Hard Drive 3: Seagate 2TB HDD (User Files)
  • Hard Drive 4: Seagate 4TB HDD (Storage)
  • Optical Drive: Samsung Blu-Ray / DVD+R (External USB)
  • Pump & Reservoir: XSPC D5 Photon 270 Reservoir & Pump Combo
  • Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS 480
  • Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Blue Concentrate + Distilled Water
  • Tubing: Monsoon Hardline PETG Tubing 1/2" ID, 5/8" OD
  • Bending & Cutting: Monsoon Hardline Cutting & Bending Kit, Barrows Bending Tool 
  • Fittings: Barrows Matte Black... and lots of them
  • Case Lighting:  LED Strip 8ft 5050 RGB + 44 Key Remote
  • Acrylic Panel: 24in x 24in x 0.25in clear
  • Sleeving Material: MDPC-X (MurderMods) Sleeving Kit; Black, Blue, Heatshrink
  • Fans: Thermaltake Riing 120mm Blue LED Fans (x4)
  • Fan Controller: Phobya 4Pin PWM to 4x 4Pin Fan Splitter, ASUS AI Suite Software


This may change a bit as I get going, but for now it's pretty solid as I have most all the parts except for the GPU and accompanying block which haven’t been released yet.
