[Build Log] KagetorA - Bitfenix Shinobi XL Water Cooled

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
hello guys!

this is my 2nd build log, i started with 955BE and ended with i5 3570K
now i decided to change my case and to totally redesign my pc

i choose black and white theme and search for the case that has white color internally and externally and i found 2 candidate: nzxt switch 810 and bitfenix shinobi XL

why i choose bitfenix shinobi xl over switch 810? well first i can't get switch 810 because it's out of stock in my country and second, i prefer the looks of shinobi than switch 810

and because my budget is really tight, i bought some WC part from my local store which is far more cheaper

okay let's get to business, this is my current parts list

i5 3570K
MSI Z77 Mpower
MSi R5850
G.skill sniper
Seasonic X560
Lamptron FC6

WC Part:
EK Supreme HF
Black Ice Pro III
EK DCP 4.0
EK Resevoir 250 Basic


and this is the looks of my rig right now

i did a lot of things yesterday, so here is the update

painted T Fitting and seal plug fitting to silver, because the original color wouldn't matched with overall color





drained my old loop



and cleaned these things with hot water and some vinegar



my WC gear



and my PC parts




since the yellow stripes on my motherboard, MSI Z77 Mpower BigBang would disturbed the overall color, i decided to cover it with white sticker
because i didn't know how to make that stripes so i asked someone to help me

the trick actually very simple

first they cover all the heat sink with transparent sticker and cut it with cutter following the stripes pattern
and then on top of it, the put some white sticker and cut it again, the transparent sticker that put before help them out to cut the white sticker following the pattern








and here's the result and i satisfied with it! biggrin.gif

What kind of white sticky 'paper' is that ?
The method is pretty simple and I already had that in mind but I just want to find some good looking paper and not something that will change color & or detach itself after a year.

i use vinyl wrap sticker, you can find it on motorcycle accessories shop, here some example http://www.ebay.com/bhp/3m-white-vinyl-wrap

the adhesive is pretty strong and it wouldn't change the color

i used the same sticker before on my motorcycle and it lasted for about 3 years
