This will be my 2nd build, technically. Though I have been doing some upgrades and stuff to my previous build (i7-4770k and Maximus VII Ranger) but this will be a whole new build with a generation jump. This time I am going with X99 and and 5820k.

And to be honest I got all the inspiration for this build from /r/Battlestations and /r/WaterCooling. One of the big problem is that none of the watercooling parts are available here in my country. I cannot even get a fitting or something if I miss out so I had to plan like a month or even more to reckon what parts I need and where to order stuff.

Took me around 4 months to gather all the things, but still there are few things in transit and I am hoping to get them in 2 weeks, I guess.

This is not my first build but yes I am doing watercooling for the first time so let's see how it goes.

Case Paint:

I'll be changing the red accent to yellow and that's what they Mayhem Sunset Yellow coolant is for, to match with the scheme. Plan is to dis-assemble the case and Plasti dip it with yellow color.

Few Notes:
  • I will not be using any HDD's in this build because all my drives are already in my home server.
  • Dell P2415Q 4K screen is also in transit. Hope it arrives by the end of the build.
  • I have not thought of a name for this build. I think it will be nameless, maybe not?
  • I will keep editing these notes. tongue.gif
