Z97 - Black Magic [CASELABS Mercury S3] ---- [Bitspower Fittings, EK Blocks, Neoprene Tubes] --

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi all!!


This is my second SFF fully watercooled build in 6 months and I am going with a dark/stealth theme this time around.

I will be using EK Blocks for the graphics card and motherboard/CPU, Bitspower fittings, as well as matte black neoprene tubes from Tygon.

I will be re-using most of the core components from my previous Corsair 250D Watercooled build including the R9 295x2 which was running a bit too hot in my 250D at 4k (this will hopefully be resolved with two 280mm rads).

As always, my build log will not be as detailed as others on OC.net, I usually build most of my computer in one evening/night creating a bid mess around me and not taking many pictures of the process (yes, I'm lazy biggrin.gif ).. So I will most likely upload pictures of the nearly finished build once it's done.

A big thank to SingularityComputers (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqChlb8y4cQ0jAFaNFPQLqA), for the inspiration, their last Mercury S3 Build 17 was the reason for me starting this build!!

Progress so far;



Next, the rads and the res.. Then the painful task of fitting the fittings and the tubes doh.gif, looking forward to my fingers looking like minced beef stitchfacesmiley.png , neoprene tubes on Bitspower compression fittings is a nightmare.

Long wait indeed, but worth it!! Best case I ever had.

Can't see myself buying anything other than Caselabs from now on, the quality is unbelievable!

Progress!! Leak testing at the moment, I went for blood red coolant in the end, the oil black looks great but I wanted a little bit of colour contrast.



More pictures to follow once I'm done with the cable management and leak test.
