[Build Log] Project B: Shado - Custom Wall Mounted x99 Build

post #1 of 124
Thread Starter 

Introduction:
Been a long time since I last did a build and have something special planned for this one. I am updating my very first rig, Project TGB and doing some pretty serious upgrades for the hardware as well as the aesthetics. This will be the third build which I have done under Project B and this one is close to my heart as I have been toying with the designs for close to two years now. There have been many different inspirations and drives towards making a wallmounted PC and have been around in my sketches for probably nearly 2 years now. During this there have been many different builds I have seen through this time which really drove me to keep going and try and get the build made, chiefly @MakiRole with his insane Loramentum build which just BLEW my mind! I am really happy that I am finally in a position where I can afford it financially and also spend the time on the build that it will deserve! Now onto the specs.




Hardware:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64bit A
Case: Custom Designed Wall Mounted PC by Parvum Systems A
Motherboard: EVGA x99 Micro 2 A
CPU: Intel Core i7 6850k @ 4.0GHz A
GPU: EVGA GTX1080 8GB A
RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz RAM A
Radiator: 1x EK PE 240mm A
Reservoir: Built In Koi Design A
Pump: EKWB DDC Elite - Plexi A
CPU Water Block: EK-Supremacy Evo x99 CPU Water Block – Plexi A
GPU Water Block: EK FC1080 - Nickel A
GPU Backplate: EK FC1080 - Acetal A
Fittings: Bitspower Black Sparkle A
Pipes: Acrylic Hard Tube A
Coolant: Mayhems Pastel White Coolant A
120mm Fans: EK Vadar F3-120mm A
Boot SSD: Samsung 850 PRO 128GB A
Storage SSD: SanDisk Ultra II 960GB A
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider SFX 600w A
Braided Cables: Custom Cable Set from Pexon A

Legend:
A: Arrived
O: Ordered
P: Pending

Case:
The case has been made by the amazing guys over at Parvum Systems specially for this build and I cannot thank them enough for the hard work that they have put into the build. Personally I would like to thank @imersa who has helped from the very start. I have included the final renders below and will post some pictures when it arrives hopefully in the next few days. The main concepts behind the design are for a minimalist build accented with a Koi fish reservoir. All this with as little tubing as possible and still achieving a sleek and elegant final piece.

Thanks for checking out my build,

Here are the final renders of the case that I will be mounting everything to. It has been designed to reduce the amount of tubing needed as much as it can using channels cut into the acrylic to allow the coolant to travel to all the needed places. The way it will be mounted is through the same method as any monitor and I intend to mount it onto a single monitor stand for the time being but have plans to adapt it for a wall mount later down the line.

Let me know what you think and I hope you're as excited as I am for this to be all finished up!

Long delay due to me getting some work building PC's for my university so will be starting posting building early next week. Big update on the specs with the decision to upgrade the system to the x99 platform by swapping the motherboard from the Asus z97 Gryphon Armour edition to a EVGA x99 Micro 2 motherboard. The CPU from an i7 4790k to an i7 6850k and the RAM from 16GB of Corsair DDR3 2133MHz RAM to 32GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 2666MHz RAM. Should give the system a bit more power I think! Also @imersa was kind enough to send me over some images of the case during production so here they are!

Yes have been really busy as I got into university and haven't done much in the way of PC building etc. Currently building some PC's for the Computing department at my university and also got the money together to do a large scale upgrade of my system! Glad to be back feels right and can't wait to get on with the build!

Thanks for the sub got lots in store and hope it comes out half as good as I am picturing!

@imersa sent over a video today of it all finished up and couldn't help but include a section of it to show you all what it looks like! Can't wait to polish up all the clear acrylic to be like glass!
