That monoblock looks amazing! It'll probably be a few weeks before EK releases one for the R5E10.

I do have a question for you, as we seem to have similar color schemes but you have a bit more hardware on your hands. What do you think for the GPU backplates? Black or Nickel?

I ordered the Nickel heatsinks for my memory, but I have black Ethereal reservoir mounts coming. I've been on the fence.

My build is more like 50:30:20, Gray Black White (the interior), so I have to be really careful with the shade of gray with the PSU cables.


But if black is your predominant shade by a long shot, then by all means go with the nickel back plate and either silver shining or black sparkle fittings, they will really POP!

Looks so luxurious in a mostly black build. smile.gif

Also, for my build, I prefer the silver or natural aluminum color for the ethereal res mount contrasting carbon black radiators.

But sometimes, if you have your shades so well balanced, BOTH colors will look equally as good.

What color did you choose for your case? I looked but did not find any reference.

Yea I really love the monoblock, EK should have the R5E10 block out by July/August, worth waiting for. smile.gif

I had wanted to do a two-tone black/gunmetal but their next run wasn't going to be for some time so I settled for Gunmetal.

That was May 14, and with a 7-8 week lead time which may or may not include shipping I'm not expecting to see the case for another 3-5 weeks.

Believe CaseLabs has a two-tone run coming up in August. Your case in all gunmetal is pure awesomeness. I have an S8 test bench all gunmetal, for a monotone chassis it's my favorite color.

I actually ordered my S8S as a tri-tone, back when that was still possible, before the rules changed. At that time I had only experienced two CL cases one all black (before gunmetal was offered) Magnum M8, and one two-tone white-black Mercury S8. I wasn't sure before ordering if I was going to like the gunmetal as an interior or exterior color. So the tri-tone arrived, I fell in love with gunmetal and later swapped out much of the white interior for more gunmetal gray.

Now the only original white interior part is the PCIe slot covers. Hahahaha biggrin.gif So my current build is really just a two-tone black ext, gray int. with white as an accent color. I'm going with Mayhems Extreme White coolant already purchased so should look so good inside the monoblock and PETG tubing.

Also using an EK plexi D5 XTOP for a splash of white goodness in the lower compartment.

I wanted this build to be fully up and running with all the kinks worked out before Legion launches August 30th, and I couldn't hold out for the August run (which hadn't even been announced at the time). Alas, single tone for me.

Yea, CaseLabs created limited periods to order white only, and limited time periods to order two-tone cases, and EOL'd about 6 to 8 cases including my S8S, and the reasoning was to streamline production.

But lead times, wait times, are still 8weeks, just like they were this time last year, before all the "Streamlining", so what's up with that? rolleyes.gif

We'll just have to see when it ships I suppose smile.gif

Hopefully soon, as I've already sold my Primo build and I'll be running my RVE10 "test bench" style for the interim.

I bought an Intel stock cooler today for making my board feel filthy. Also test benching.

I picked up a Noctua cooler for the same reasons, to test all parts within the 30-day return window, also picked up my CPU from Siliconlottery.com so had to make certain I was sent a stable 4.8GHz cherry picked 6700k, and he only gives you 15-days to test if not satisfied to send back.

The M8E is a good one, CPU is absolutely brilliant, got it delidded.

I'm waiting on samples to arrive from IceModz so I can match the best gray to my build and order the PSU cables, they might arrive today.

I tell ya man, the view I have with the black exterior panels looking through the side and top windows onto the gunmetal gray interior frame the contrast is absolutely beautiful, really happy I'm rocking two-tones with white accents, its breathtaking, everything I really wanted in this work build. smile.gif


Parts mounted on the Caselabs ATX mobo tray:

I'm swapping out the Seasonic Snow Silent white PSU in this pic for the Seasonic 850watt Titanium Prime launching in mid-July, the white PSU is moving to my 2ndary rig, the all gunmetal S8 test bench. Doing a basic gray/white themed build with that rig.

I guess my life is colorless. biggrin.gif





My fittings, went all Bits this time and first time using the matching Bits thermal probes, I hope they work ok, thus far I've been using the AquaComputer inline ring temp probes, they work extremely well with the Aquaero 6, hoping for the same results with the Bits thermal.

Yup, there's the white accents I was talking about. smile.gif


IMG_6067_zpsf6dacney.jpg


This part I ended up not using, the EK XTOP dual D5. My case just is not large enough to reasonably accommodate the size, nor do I really need two D5s for cooling a single 6770K. But it is a gorgeous part.

Would probably be right at home in your larger build.

IMG_5613_zpsbd5h9bxb.jpg


OK that's enough pics, don't want to post too much. I tend to do that every once in awhile cuz I get excited over my build. biggrin.gif

I don't mind the pics at all. Considering my 4.6 GHz Broadwell-E is still holding as the gold standard from Siliconlottery.com, I couldn't be happier with that purchase. With TPU hitting 200+ FPS in WoW @ 4k with two 1080s in SLI, I'm hopeful that I'll be able to push 80 FPS+ in my 3x1 Surround 4k setup.

Arcane Sanctum updates
Icemodz was out of stock of the single ethereal mounts so I opted to swap for the black dual mounts. I just placed my order for fluids, but I think I'll keep that one to the vest to at least have something to reveal with my final build photos.

EK tweeting that the MSI Gaming X blocks should be available next week. No word on the monoblock, but I'll probably have to pay for shipping twice to secure stock.
