My upgraded build - SMA8 edition

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
This is my SMA8 build, coming from a 900D. As a pretty big fan of AMD CPUs, I recently switched to the Ryzen 1800x from an i7 6700k. Now I'm waiting for Volta next year, no big upgrades will happen until then. With that said, here are the current specs.

Case arrived & build started. Hopefully I can finish it by the end of the week.

Got the top rad in and flipped the CPU block so that the bend is easier to make. Sadly, the 560 Monsta was too thick and I couldn't drill the holes so I ordered an XT45. Will be here next week I hope.
post #5 of 24
That sucks about the monsta but the thinner rad will work out good. The SMA8 is a great case.

@kgtuning Indeed, my favorite case on the market.
@Barefooter Thanks man.
This is what I did so far today. Might have to clean the right res, it's the one that came from the 900D so it's a bit dirty.
post #8 of 24
Definitely looking good so far.. wish I had bought mine with the solid midplate.

I spent a lot of time on this simple bend but I'm not 100% happy with it. Should I change it?
post #10 of 24

The bend from the CPU to the res didn't work out and I ordered more tubing as I ran out of it. If you look closely you can see it has a small kink in it. Here's the progress so far, will do some wireing durint the weekend.
