Update #1: Some old pics + current state of build

When I originally did my build, I didn't take very many pictures. These are the best ones I could take out of there. Don't worry, I will have tons more!

Update #2: I'm alive!

Wow I completely forgot about this build log. I guess it's because no one commented on it. Oh well; I'll finish it anyway. So here we go!

Hooray everything came!

Overview of all the goodies

Acrylic sheet...sexy shroud maybe?

Dat CPU block...


Odd Future Wolfgang Killcoil Them All!

Resevoir! Perfect size heart.gif


Some fittings




Revised jet plate for my CPU block

24pin sleeved extension by NZXT

EK radiator

Dual pump deliciousness! Unfortunately I won't be able to take advantage of both of them yet thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

And a controller for said pumps

Spent the extra to get the Advanced tubing. Let's hope it's worth it!

Was a bit unsure when I bought this block. As sexy as it is, it doesn't fit my color scheme. Oh well, I'll make it fit!

Update #3: Block mounting

Not really much to say; it's pretty self-explanitory!

GPU now

Stripped naked

Thermal padded up!

Ok nevermind this block is so sexy. I don't care if it doesn't fit in!

Thanks! I really wanted to do something unique. There's too many red or blue themed builds, imo.

I wanted to do a test fit to make sure everything fit. Plus I was getting antsy and wanted to see everything put together! wheee.gif

Reservoir installed


Ghetto mounting lol

All taped up to be cut!

Pump mounted on some foam to prevent vibrations


Starting to add tubing





Time to flush!
