I was set on the SMA8 because I thought that case was waaay too big, but it doesn't seem so bad looking at one in real time. I may have to reconsider my case choice now.

Question. Are you using the Bitspower fitting with the Primochill hard tubing?

Subbed. Curious to see what/how you paint the motherboard.

Likewise, this should turn out to be a fantastic build.

Question. Are you using the Bitspower fitting with the Primochill hard tubing?

Yeah, I'm really enjoying the room.

I'll be using mostly Primochill fittings, actually, but also the Bitspower pass-throughs and Bitspower angle fittings. Thanks for your support!

Ask and ye shall receive. What does one do when there's no such thing as an Asus Rampage V Black Edition? Make your own, of course!


Before...


Tools of the trade. X-acto, tons of tape, acrylic paint, and brushes.

I also used a cheapo DDR4 stick of ram (as though there is such a thing!) and an old PCIe card to block each slot as I painted it. There are other techniques out there of course. Spraypaint, Plasti-Dip, etc. But I felt like this would give me the nicest finish, precision, and a bit of texture to boot. I'll post a video of the process this weekend but for now, here are the results...





Not too shabby. You can still see a bit of red inside the slots, but none once they're plugged, and I'd rather have that then the chance of the contacts getting messed up.
