[Build Log] Project: Bipolar Revamp!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so this is my first build log, so any constructive criticism is appreciated biggrin.gif

This project is basically the result of my issues with my Haf 922, liquid cooling shenanigans, and me getting a *liittle* (ok, very...) carried away while trying to find a better way to mount my RX240 in a way that let it have enough space. this led to further modding to my current case, which basically left it as an empty shell. Now, im finally getting around to my yearly upgrades, and have been working towards bringing this build to where I have been envisioning it for quite some time laughingsmiley.gif


Ok, so parts wise, my original build was as follows:
So, my list of upgrades for this build are as follows,


before pics: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

As you can see, my tubings plasticizer broke down very quickly, and it looks pretty nasty.

As far as mods go,
  • I am thinking about sleeving my entire Psu in Red and black, but i have never done anything like it before, and wouldn't know where to start, i have 2 sets of modular connectors for my psu, so i have a little bit of room for error. if i dont end up sleeving it myself, i will probably use some of the bitfenix extensions, but as of right now i am undecided. what are your thoughts?
  • I will be cutting a window into the left side panel of the 9000
  • I am planning on using RGB LED's controlled by a small controller and a small 12v converter for interior lighting

Any other mods have not been planned, but we shall see what comes up smile.gif

Well, so begins the best project I have ever embarked upon biggrin.gif

If you browse through my build log I pretty much went step by step with sleeving with paracord. But if I am missing anything feel free to ask and I'll let you know what I did and what I would have done differently. I'm wanting to see these final outcomes. Such a big case with so much potential!

Also to make a great build log, take some time to link each component that you are using! Helps people quickly see what you are working with. Also take tons of pics from a tripod.... I bought a tiny one for about $9 from Walmart that helps get some good shots.

Thanks for the input, i will update the original post with images, links and the like. Your build looks great thumb.gif, and as far as the tripod goes, i have a *tiny* one, but i will use it for the next batch of pictures.

Time to update the first post smile.gif updated biggrin.gif

Edit: So, looking into the sleeving, if I am going to do it myself, I am looking at FTW pc paracord biggrin.gif

In these colors: Scarlet red and black , with white heatshrink

I am still undecided, but it looks like it could be fun smile.gif

Ok, so this saturday i will be ordering the Masterkleer tubing and probably a set of the Monsoon fittings as well. progress! biggrin.gif

And, also, more pics of some of the components. I will take more pictures (and hopefully better pictures) when the case gets here. I will also document the installation, as I dont see too many in the Genesis (so far)

The Azza Genesis:


(i will be uploading a ton of pictures of this case when it gets here)


Pics of the setup as it lies right now:

My current Dominator set, I absolutely love this ram biggrin.gif


My Corsair Force 3. So far, this ssd has been performing amazingly!


How everything is set up for now, it looks ok, I guess. It is a bit messy, but, its a WIP tongue.gif



A decent pic of how the current progress looks in normal lighting. I wish I could find a case that came stock in this color, purple ftw!



My current hard drive mount situation. It will be nice to have everything internal again whistle.gif



A quick view through my radiator, I thought it was pretty neat that you can just barely see a bit of the Gelid fan



A frontal view of my current case. As you can see, When I was in the carried away phase I flipped the front panel to mount my RX 240 onto it rolleyes.gif



A detail pic of my broken down tubing... I cant wait to replace this... its really been bugging me. Fortunately its issues have not affected the rest of my loop.



And, last but not least, another picture of the setup with the side on, and my RGB Led's set to white.


And now for pics of some of the past configurations, complete with UV fun!:
