Build almost completed, couple more pics from today's work



Also swapped out the semi flattening bend that went between the 90* fitting on the CPU block outlet to the stepped lower 45* Mosfet block inlet fitting. I have a 20mm extender on both and changed the 45* to a 90* and they line up OK, much better than before. Then I got leak testing underway.



No leaks!

Here's a couple shots showing it from different angles, using a real camera this time.





It's pretty much impossible to tell off a camera, but the middle card block is Nickel/Acetal and the upper and lower cards are copper/Acetal. I was unsure about it, but just like white and rose gold go really well together creating a two-tone effect, I think this does too.

And for anyone wondering what it looks like in the dark, here's a 5 second exposure that comes close to showing it as the eye sees it, but a little brighter so you can see more detail. The res is really amazing, love the effect!



And just being artsy, 30sec exposure

Looks awesome! I thought my mixed nickel/copper components on my R4BE build would look bad too, but it works fine. thumb.gif

Hi everyone!!! Very excited to be part of this elite group. I have a question, big issue, about my RIVBE MoBo!!! I got 2 EVGA GTX780 GPU, new, and for some reason I cant get to install properly the nvidia drivers on Win7 64Bits. The result is that the cards are recognized as VGA Standard Driver with a disastrous 800x600 resolution. The last mobo firmware converted it to a UEFI Bios. Any suggestion???

Have you run a "clean install" to delete previous driver remnants? Failing that, reinstall windows perhaps? My titans were detected fine and drivers installed fine so technically there's nothing limiting you just windows itself.

makes me ALMOST miss my 900Dud

you left those drive bays in though, which means your case doesn't flex much.

removing ALL drive bays = you could literally twist the case into a flat object like a clothing box from sears.

Yes that's one reason I left them in! If I had to remove them Id put a plate across all drive bay mounting holes to keep the rigidity. It's no case labs case, just riveted mild steel so it's not going to have the strength of a aluminium bolted case for example.

I was just testing the full size tower waters and I think next time will get something special. Didn't want to outlay $900+ AUD (case labs are super exxy here) when the wife could turn around and say no way get that out of here haha! Or even if I thought it was excessive. But I enojoyed building into the 900 and the wife is fine with it's dimensions so will be staying full size tower in future. Better start saving now then!

I love what Phantek is doing. I paid original MSRP for my 900D, and was lucky to sell it off for $200, but damn, Phantek is really kicking Corsair's ass when it comes to quality, within the same price bracket.

I love 900D builds, they look great, I just know the glaring limitations they present. The damn thing should'a been .5 inches wider. Almost silly that they put the dual PSU support in there, when they literally touch each other back to back.

I considered a Phanteks enthoo primo. After buying then returning a couple of Phanteks PWM splitter hubs, however, I'm not going near that brand again. Quality of the soldering was absolutely appalling, near dead shorts from solder tags off of components. Looked like a 3 year old soldered it together using a hot spoon. I wasn't going to risk running something that bad in my build. If you are considering one of their cases, take a look at one in person. I haven't, but from what I saw in their fan splitter hubs I think I dodged a bullet when I chose the 900D over the enthoo. Like I said though I'd love a Case Labs case, but wanted to trial a build with a full size case that wasn't mega dollars first.

I totally get it. I went with the STH10 for this build because I thought I was getting a good deal, but my guilty conscience ended up making it not much of a deal. I paid $700 for what would'a cost $1,000 new, so I guess that's an OK deal, but I was supposed to get away with it, and all the accessories for $550. BUT, I felt terrible for the reseller when he emailed me a copy of a $200 shipping receipt, as we assumed shipping wouldn't be more than $75, buuuuuuuuuuuuut he lives in the middle of bumflip New York, so there's only ONE single shipping agency in a 30 mile radius that would ship the case, thus they gouged his eyes out.

I've seen Entho Primo in person. The build quality is definitely superior to 900D, but it's still a mass produced product. Their fan splitters have been getting a bad rap from day one, though. Even if they're assembled correctly, they tend to not work, as they aren't really doing what people expect them to do, thus they have compatibility issues.

Yes, shipping is ridiculous for large items. I think they come flat packed now so you don't get hit so hard but still, sounds like you got a good deal. $300 is $300. I think reselling the 900D will be easier due to corsairs reputation, Phanteks has this real budget aspect to them and have just not taken off here at all. Their fan splitters were that bad, I mean burn your house down bad, I will never give that company a dollar of mine, not if they can release a product that bad and arguably dangerous and expect you to pay $19 each for them. What a joke that was.

Anyway. I'm loving the new found space, loving being able to have 2 x 480mm rads with ease, and loving dumping 1100w into a single loop with fans at 1200rpm and still having great temps. Full size cases are definitely the way to go and if you build them like we do anyway, they're kinda cool to look at even for the non-PC literate friends and family.

Just saw you have 3-way titans as well *(brofist)* thumb.gif
