[Build Log] DEEPCOOL Tristellar Dual Loop

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Hi all, back again with a followup build to me last one "White Metropolis" (see signature). Follow along for the fun.


Theme:

I went through many ideas of what type of theme to have and I decided I wanted to go with something will a Blue/Black/White/Grey theme because I found THIS picture and liked how the colors worked together and came up with some sleek design elements to go along with it. Then I saw that Bitspower has some blue fittings and figured....Well I could make this a nice dual loop where one loop is ALL BLUE (fluid, pump mod kit, and fittings) and the other is ALL WHITE (fluid, pump mod kit, fittings) and the case is black, of which I will add some grey elements which hopefully will give an overall variety yet be cohesive at the same time.

This is certainly going to be an interesting case to work in....



The dual loop concept will kind of depend on how quickly EK releases 3rd party blocks for the 1070 line of cards. If they don't right after release I will likely fully build the one loop while saving room for the other and leave the GPU air cooled until they do.

Expect quality pictures and videos along the way. The build will be finished by early July.

Thanks, It's pretty out there in terms of what looks "normal" (though I dig it!), which makes a great excuse for over the top watercooling.


GPU designing:

going to be 3 layers of acrylic stacked on top of eachother with the design cutout slightly shifted, which will allow it to be a 3D multi color backplate.

Layer 1 (White):

I really enjoyed your last build log, so subbing for this one too.
post #9 of 46
So this is your new project. Very promising. The GPU backplate idea looks great. I’ve not seen that particular case before - it’s certainly going to make for something very different.

Interesting to see someone taking the challenge on the Tristellar thumb.gifwink.gif

Only a few guys who have done it before, not many.
