Looking good bro.

Love the look of the H60 on that board it looks like it was made for it.
post #96 of 112
I think the first color combo looks a lot cleaner imo.

Wow option 1! that colour scheme is stunning biggrin.gif

thanks for the sub guys smile.gif

dont worry... they are the sole reason i am WCing the Motherboard thumb.gif
i dont do "a lot" of editing, but the graphic work I do uses massive files (sometimes over 100GB)... a good frined of mine has used both boards quite a bit, and says they are both equally stable, and capable but the XPower II take a little bit more tweaking... I ended up picking the board because i like the layout 100x more then the RIVE and it fits my color scheme better tongue.gif

as for the GPU water blocks, i am seriously debating until the 89XX series comes out and selling my current cards... if not then i will either go XSPC or EK tongue.gif


now for UPDATE TIME! biggrin.gif























So as you can see, I have the comp up and running (I'm posting this from it smile.gif). The H80i is just a temporarily solution until I get RADs and fittings. Everything is connected and set up on the station currently, but unfortunately i don't have any pictures (and its too dim right now for good pictures).


and here is one i liked... i screwed up on the focus, but i kinda like the reflection of the camera in it tongue.gif

I've already ordered an MDPC crimper, and plan to order para cord with my next amazon order (LEPA G 1600 and BluRay Burner), so now I need your guys' opinions on color scheme. Here are the options I am currently looking at.

Option #1:



Option #2:



the first 8 and 6 pins go together, and the second 8-pin will be mobo power, and the second 6-pin will be the one that goes into the mobo. I like the idea of a 4 color scheme, but I'm not sure how well it will work. The coolant on top will be orange and bottom, purple. What do you guys think? smile.gif

And here is a blank template if you want to make a different suggestion smile.gif

Great updates, at last! biggrin.gif

I say, option #1!
And me not like premixed coolants or dyes...I'd rather go for UV colored tubing, add some black light and voila.
Distilled performs better and is hassle free if you put a drop of PT nuke in there and a Silver Coil.

Oh yeah and I'm super jealous of this build and it's not even near finished lol

that was my thought as well... I realy like the splash of yellow and turquoise, but i think that #2 could easily look too busy as well

ty for the compliment redface.gif... as for the coolant, I agree for sure from a performance stand point. That said, This builds isn't just for a work machine... Since this is the first build I have done for myself since Pentium D's came out, I want to make this beautiful as well (even if it does sacrifice a little performance)... I plan to use mayhem's pastel, and his Glycerol based mix (i like glycerol rolleyes.gif)
