Corsair 350D "Red Dragon" Rigid Acrylic Tubing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, everyone. I'm fairly new to overclock.net and thought I'd share the build I've just completed. This is my first full computer build so I'm open to any suggestions/ criticisms. P.S. Sorry in Advance for the bad picture quality and terrible lighting. I'm working on getting a place set up for some better photos. Alright, now the components:

Case: Corsair 350D
Power Supply: Corsair AX 860i
Motherboard: Asus Z87 LGA 1150 Maximus Gene VI Micro ATX Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k
RAM: 32 GB Corsair 2133 MHZ
GPU: EVGA GTX 780 Ti Superclocked
Storage: 2 x Samsung EVO 500 GB SSD in Raid 0
Storage: 1 x WD Black 4TB HDD
Fans: 4 x Corsair 120mm SP High Performance and 1 x Corsair 120mm AF Quiet Edition

Now for the watercooling components:

Reservoir: Bitspower Multi-Z 150 x 60 mm Tube Res
Pump: EK D5 Pump
CPU Block: EK CSQ Supremacy Clean
GPU Block: EK Acetal Full Cover Waterblock w/ Backplate
Radiators: 2 x Alphacool 30mm Slim Radiators
Fittings: All fittings are Bitspower's Matte Black Fittings
Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Red

I really wanted a tube reservoir in this build as I love the way they look. However, including this into my build forced me to sacrifice on some performance and also may look a bit crammed. Opinions? Anyways, I'll post the pictures below. Also, if you guys are interested, I will post some benchmarks tomorrow to give you guys a good idea of how the system is running overclocked. All in all, I'm very happy with this as its my first complete PC build.

UPDATE: I took some (hopefully) better pictures. The last ones were washed out and blurry.

Looks good. Doesn't look cramped at all.

Just open up a window and have the case by it getting natural light. The harsh flash is just washing out everything. Cant wait for som updated pics.thumb.gif

Two questions for you what did you use to mount the reservoir to the bottom 240 Rad? Also what did you use to mount your drain valve in terms of fittings? Did you like how your red pastel mayhems came out?
