My first custom watercooled build - Skylake, 1080, ROG Maximus VIII, Corsair 750D - Page 2

Yes I saw that the ek block will be out today. Now I have to wait for the 1080, non-founders edition.

I've also decided to go ahead and make my own custom cables for the first time. I just placed my order with ice modz. Ppcs order will be here next week. I am getting really excited about this build! Lots of firsts for me.

So I've been trying to buy a 1080 with no luck. In the meantime, ive changed a couple of things.
Instead of the ugly green pcb m.2 hard drive i was planning on, I've purchased a Samsung 950 pro!




This will look soooo much better installed on my black mobo.

Another change I've decided on is that I'm making my own custom cables. I received my icemodz order and im going to start taking some measurements this weekend. It will be all mdpc-x sleeving.



I can't believe how big this 750D case is. I should be able to easily fit everything in here. Corsair really does a great job.





I will be removing the hard drive cages, of course. Not sure yet if I'll be removing the 5 1/4 inch bays.

So i decided to install the m.2 drive, the cpu and the cpu monoblock.





Let's see how it looks in the case!








Sorry, I only have my phone to take pictures. I think it looks pretty good. Definitely need to remove the 5 1/4 bays. That's just going to make it look awful.

Well, that's all for now. I will start taking measurements tomorrow for my custom cables. I'm also thinking about making a custom psu cover with black plexi. I'd like to cut out a rog logo and get a nice glow effect with some leds.

If anyone has a good template for the logo, please let me know. Also, any suggestions for a name are welcome.
