It looks like I'll barely be able to work in an extra 280mm x flow radiator. I think U flow would have worked better.




I'm not sure I dig the new corsair ml120 fans. It think TT riing would look better, but they are kinda crappy fans. Maybe swapping out for Eloops.




Gonna go with white aurora coolant for show then change to white pastel with bitspower true brass fittings.

I have been waiting for this case to come out so I can make my first PC build. You selected some of the same components I have had in mind. Same motherboard. Same fittings. Same case. But I was going to go with GTX 1080s instead of Titans. I think I'm going to wait a few more months until the new version of the Acer Predator monitor comes out before I dive into this project.

I'm curious to see how this project turns out. Please post more photos, specs, components, and overclock results.

Also, where did you find the Bitspower True Brass fittings? I've had a difficult time finding them available online.

Frozencpu.com has bitspower true brass. If you know what parts, performance-pcs.com will special order them for you too.

With the h frame 2.0, I'm making cables first. The cables aren't very well designed. There is this thing:



It's how the mid panel LED are powered and controlled. Pretty ugly. I'm going to just use a molex instead and sacrifice the ability to adjust LED brightness.

Have you considered ordering custom sleeved cables? Or are you going to do all the sleeving yourself?

Also, do you have a complete list of components?

Lastly, how many Bitspower fittings did you buy and what did they cost? I have been considering using metal tubing which would require more fittings as opposed to PETG with bends.

Great looking case.

You managed to fit a 240 mm radiator in the front? The product description and specifications doesn't list that as supported. Are there mounts for it or did you have to modify the case? Are there going to be room for fans, the radiator, and a pump in that space?

I'm going to do the sleeving myself this time. It's the next level for me. Because of the special PSU, there aren't gonna be any after market kits.


Also, do you have a complete list of components?

Not yet. I'm was gonna mainly re-use parts from my other builds, but I just sold 3 of my Titan X, so I might change to 1080 or the new Titan X. Gonna wait till benchmarks come out. Right now I'm looking for better looking fans. The corsair ML120 didn't look good. The Eloop are slightly better. I think TT Riing will look best, but they aren't very good fans. Maybe the new premium Riing will be better.




Lastly, how many Bitspower fittings did you buy and what did they cost? I have been considering using metal tubing which would require more fittings as opposed to PETG with bends.

I just bought about $650 of true brass to get me started. I will use the black ones I have left around to complete the eloops. Once I know which pieces I need specifically, I will custom order them in true brass. I hate bending acrylic, so I will probably be using a lot of connectors too. I'm thinking about using metal tubing also. I have a bunch of 12/10mm acrylic laying around, so I will probably build the loop with acrylic first and use those lengths to cut the metal.

I'm going to try to work in a 280mm actually. I use this:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/xspc-140mm-radstand-universal-140mm-radiator-stand.html

I think there will be room for a U flow 280. X Flow will make things too tight for comfort.

I have tried the bitspower rad stand in the past too, but found those to be a little flimsy.

I'm going to use a single D5 pump for cosmetic reasons. I thought about dual but it would just be too crowded. I intend to make a custom acrylic mounting block for the pump to get myself some more real estate on the back wall.
