Since I have gotten a second hand TH10, I am going to redo my build log for the rig.

Monitor: Dell U2713HM / Dell 2711

Future upgrades

It's one thing to measure out the dimensions and 'fit' it to your desk. It's another thing to see it in person!

The owner speced out XXL windows on both sides with an extended 39mm top.



Test-fitted my EX360 at the bottom of the case and my Koolance bay res at the lowest 5.25" bay area. The thing is cavernous! The EX360 was a tight fit in the Phantom and I had so much space in the TH10! I'm rather surprised at the amount of offset the rad mounting has. I think I'm going to get a thicker rad for the later upgrade!


The PSU side of things. I'm going to need another HDD mount for what I have planned


For scale, I put the TH10 next to what my rig is currently on. The white thing's a Flexbay 360mm rad mount. Got it off iBored.




Too bloody awesome! And the seller threw in the delivery since he was heading the same direction!

That lonely GPU is going to look so tiny inside that massive chassis. I love my CL

EDIT: I went from a Phantom 530 like that to a Caselabs case. You'll never go back.

Yep, it's going to be lonely for a while! My next upgrade would be to get another 290 to accompany the one inside.

Got some installation done tonight after coming back from work

Got the pump into the RP452 bay


Installed two of three fans on the EX360. One more needs to come out of my Phantom.


Four fans on the EX480. The pull fans will be in the extended top.


View of the top fans from another direction


Spaghetti work to be done...

Got some spray paint work done just now. I got some flat black spray paint from the local hardware store and sprayed it onto the 360mm flex bay rad mount. I will work on the other side tomorrow and let this side cure over night.



In other news, here's a closer look at the PCI-e 6 pin the previous owner installed for the pump's power. From the looks of it, I might be getting a new power supply to let me hook this up directly into the power supply. A bit troublesome, but a great idea.

I really want that massive case...

I was on Lutro0 wondering if I should order the Paracord for sleeving and remembered that a 'milsurplus' shop I frequent actually sells 550 paracord. I got about 60m (almost 200ft) in total of red and black for about USD24, less than half of what it would cost me on Lutro0, without shipping. Loving the deep red! I will be going for an alternating red and black sleeving on my cables. Just need to get the pin removers from PPCs and I can start...



At the same time, I removed the NZXT sleeved LED from my Phantom and installed it in the TH10. Although I will be needing some double-sided tape to mount the clips...



Hopefully, this will be out of view of the window...



Love how even the lighting is and nicely sleeved the kit is!

Wonderful. The Intel 530 SSD in my rig just started developing problems, JUST AFTER I BOUGHT THE AX1200i.
