Let me begin by saying - I am never doing a water cooling build this intensive again... This project was slowly put together using parts deals I would randomly find. I initially had a Titan X Pascal and 8700k for this build, but the Titan died half way through the build and I found a 9600k for next to nothing locally on Craigslist.
Some clarification on parts listings since PCPP doesn't have the exact components I used in the build. 1. Power Supply is actually a Silverstone SX700, Titanium rating. It is actually SFX not SFX-L. I believe this was a pretty newly released product. 2. I run one Hard Drive by itself as a MAC OS boot disk. The PNY drive I have is the dedicated MAC HDD, no partitions.
I just wanted to share this build because ive never seen an M1 don't this way specifically with the rear mounted FrozenQ Res/80mm Rad. I used motherboard standoffs to set is about a 1/4 of an inch off of the case so the 80mm rad and Noctua have room to intake adequate amounts of air. I literally threw in the 80MM rad just to see if I could do it. You're able to mount both on the back at the same time using the standoffs, while the Res uses 92mm fan mounting holes, 80mm rad obviously uses the smaller mounting holes. In order to fit the 80mm Rad, and still have room for the in and out tubes for the Res to clear underneath I had to drill two mounting holes about 1/8 inch above the original mounting holes. Because I had to move the Rad up, I had to remove the stock position of the PSU extension plug, so I moved it to spot where the removable backplate for installing the GPU used to be. (see pictures).
Any questions, leave a comment, ill try and help as best as I can. im not done benchmarking/OCing yet so ill post those once I have a nice stable OC.
