sadly the CPU block top got a crack and leaked all over the graphics card. (you can even see a small puddle on the backplate that i didn't notice yet at the time of taking the photo biggrin.gif)
I'm gonna post a few more pics and detailed specs when i get a new top delivered.

Nice looking build. Sad to hear about the leak and hopefully no damaged components. Are you planning to leave the clear panel off or cut/mod it?

After spending a painful time cleaning the fittings sad-smiley-002.gif here they are, 100% clean smile.gif
I used a steel wool soaked in water+non-abrasive detergent to clean the inner of the fittings (taking extra care to not scratch them).




Also, i used some cotton buds to clean some mobo parts that had dust in it.
The reservoir was cleaned with water+non-abrasive detergent.




This is "Frank", the Frankstein drain-valve system.
Unfortunately, i would need to make a mod to use it in the bottom part of the case, but my brother did not allowed me to do that mad.gif



For now that's what i have.
More updates tomorrow.

Tbh, i think it will not improve more than 2ºC thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
It's just that i can not see dirt and leave it there.

Finally, after two days, it's clean and it's done, for at least 1 year!
Some of you sent me PM asking what kind of biocide and anti corrosion i use/recommend.
I choose to use "Pulse Modding PHN BioClear", it's one of the few biocides out there that does not affect the acrylic parts (GPU waterblock and rez, for example).
About the anti corrosion, that really depends on the material parts your system has.
This one has copper&brass+nickel+acrylic, with bi-distilled water and mayhems no-stain dye, so i don't use any anti corrosion in it. If you have alluminium parts, them i recommend to use it.
Sorry about the low-quality photos (i used my zenfone 2 camera, not to good).

Good news.
I was wrong, the cpu temp during games dropped about 4℃, and gpu is now 3℃ cooler smile.gif

I'll test the system later with the new tomb raider.

Can I just say that is one of the most gorgeous builds I've seen for this case. Really does look amazing.
I particularly like the multicolour braided ATX power cable, i'd love that on my rig as i've got a blue colour scheme going as well. And finding decent white fans these days is more of a challenge than you'd first think so well done!

Thanks man thumb.gif
You're right, these vardar fans were the only ones in full-white colour AND deliver good performance.
The sleved cables are from Icemodz, really good quality.

This probably isn't the right place to post this but since I'm new to the site I figured I could still get some answers. I am planning to purchase this case (Corsair Air 240) and would it be possible to fit this build into it?
CPU
Intel Core i7-5820K
Motherboard
Asus X99-A/USB3.1
Video Card
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Hybrid 6GB
Memory
Corsair 4x4GB Vengeance LPX DDR4-3000 Black
Solid-State Drive
Samsung 850 Evo 1TB
Power Supply
EVGA Supernova GS 1050W
CPU Cooler
Corsair Hydro H100i GTX Liquid Cooler

Seeing as most of you own this case and can speak from first hand experience building in it I would greatly appreciate some help. And if this is not the right place to post/ ask this question please help me to move this. Anyways thanks for reading and have a good day!
