[Build Log] Project R&B (Red&Black), Water Cooling High-end mATX VULCAN MOD [COMPLETE]

post #1 of 57
Thread Starter 
I've been posting already to NZXT Vulcan Owners Club.
Following member's advice, I make my own log.
So, first some posts will be the same posts I've already made.
SORRY!

This build concept is R&B (Red and Black).
Not really "High-End" but around upper-middle I guess.
Fully Water Cooled small machine is the main theme.

So does that radiator fit in the mesh piece where the fans go? Our builds are pretty similar biggrin.gif
Except for my 240mm is up front. Great work.

Thank you.
I love this case, too!
Vulcan is super high-potential mATX case I believe.

I forgot to bring one more update from Vulcan Owners Club about this radgrill MOD.


As this picture and the picture above show, EX240 is sitting on the top of the case.
I won't mod case for this ASSY 'cause all interior space is necessary for my build.
At least I'm gonna add a bit R&B spice for it. lol
I'm checking your build, too!!
Great work, bro!!!
Thankx again.




I'll update tonight when get home.
Thanks ALL!

Ahh OK! Yea, external rads arent my thing...I like it all internal. Great job on the work youre doing here thumb.gif
One thing of advice. With that 8 pin wire it is very tough to get it to fit. So just be careful. I originally made a square in the back and that didnt work like I wanted to.
I know what you mean about internal space! I wish I could run another radiator, maybe Ill do an 80mm for my 670...but tubing and routing will be pretty tough I think.
Keep up the good work!

Thankx again for your advice but actually MB ASSY is done already.
In my build, 8pin is also sleeved extension which I wanna show on purpose.
So, that is NP.

Yes, all routine and wiring are pretty tough in this small space.
However I believe it is already Vulcan's fun point. lol
Let's have some FUN together bro!

For sure! I ordered a T-Block for my loop, so hopefully I can find some room for that and make a way to drain my system. At this point it is super difficult. Stay tuned on my build as somethings are happening soon...nothing huge. but should be pretty cool biggrin.gif:thumb:
