Hey guy’s,

This weeks update.

I have got the fluid from Nanoxia it looks great, I got the UV green and they did me a custom purple colour I have some photos below.

I had some bad news this week having a issues with the custom res so I have made a new simple design this weekend and hopefully it will be cut in the next few days I have found this hard as I am using a friends CNC. I am looking at getting one myself which will help for future builds.

I have took the ek waterblock off the 980ti and put the Alphacool Nexxos 980ti block on, this was so simple to do (one of the easiest installs ever)and the instruction are very simple to follow and all the thermal pads already cut to size I have added some photos below.

I went and got the ram on friday 16gb corsair RGB, these are going to really suit the build they are matt black. I test these at the weekend photos below

I ended the day putting window 10 on the system.

Next update I am hoping for a big one, have a few more bits of perplex to cut and paint then one more pass through hole from the basement to the top rad then it’s off to paint.

Thanks for checking out my build log any question or feedback leave below.

Update,

Sorry for lack of updates it has taken a lot longer to do the custom res, than first planned.

I will start this update with the custom res, the amount of time I have sat and taken measurements to designed the res then for us (paul a friend with a CNC) to produce it has been crazy. I have attached the finish res below, end up with a basic design one input, one output and a fill port, I have also included two passthroughs. I have done the base of the res in white perplex 20mm thick. The lid of the perplex is made out of 5mm perplex this should be fine as it is lying flat. I have also tap the threads for each hole, I need to make sure I did this right as I didn’t want to mess this up as I would need to start again. To seal the lid to the base I used clear silicon around the passthroughs as I don’t want purple running into the green and a product call fusion 500. I am leaving this to dry for the next few days then I will leak test.

I have got my hands on a used i5 7600k for a great price which I could not turn down. I have also added the Eisblock XPX cpu block to the motherboard, I have attached photos below.

I have fitted the custom air intake on to the front of the case with the tempered glass I really like how much this has changed the look of the case. I have attached photos below.

I have drilled all of the holes for the passthrough on the custom motherboard tray, I do need to try and make some spacers as it is going to be tight fit on the back side panel, I have a few ideas. I have attached the photos below.

Do do list.

Leak test,
Do loop,
Send case off to paint,
Finished custom motherboard tray need to added holes for 8 pin 24pin.
Meet up with to the wire custom sleeves and get the rest of the cables sleeved.

Hope you have enjoyed the update, any questions or feedback leave below.

Richard.

Thanks I have leak tested it during the week and when I took one off the fitting off I took a chip out of if, I have a way of fixing. It has been the hardest part of this build getting it right, now that I know how to do it I can design something better. for my next build.

Thats unfortunate knocking a chip out. Hope it isnt to much of an issue to repair it

Hi Guy's,

Just a quick update the case is off to paint should hopefully get this back in 10 days. I will not be able to do much while this is getting done.

I will post some photos at the weekend of me leak testing the custom res. I have been thinking about painting the brackets green for the CPU block, let me know your thoughts.

Richard.

Hey guy’s

Here is this weeks update,

The case is back from the paint shop (one week late) it’s turn out great, I have added a few photos below but I don’t want to show too much just yet.

I have done a top cover for the custom res I cut the perplex to size add the holes, I want to put alphacool logo on this, so you can see the nanoxia fluid coming through the logo. I my friends at gorilla game to cut the logo out onto vinyl, I place this in the centre of back of the perplex then sprayed the back with a high gloss white. Once this was dry I peeled back the vinyl and you can see in the photos below it turned out great.

While I had the white gloss out I did the same process for the motherboard tray, I covered the front of the motherboard try in painters tape and paint the back in high white gloss. The reason why I paint the back of the perplex is because you get a nice finish when you look from the front, you can see this in the photos below.

I had to buy a new rivet gun, I have some how misplaced it. I order some white 3.2mm rivets from ebay they look great (photo below) but were 4mm not 3.2mm so I didn’t use them, which mean I need to paint all the rivets white.

I have been speaking to a few people in the forums who suggested not to paint the full bracket on the CPU block, I have follow their advice and I think it’s came out great. Thanks again for your input, I have attached the photos below.

I have also leak test the custom res left it to run for hours and had no issues.

The only thing that I need is the fans which I have been told should be here the end of July.

I will be meeting up with to the wire custom sleeved in the next few weeks to get all the cable sleeved and ran.

To do list.

I need to make some custom spacers as the bulk fittings are a little bit to long, I need to think outside the box.

Run hard tubing (thinking about doing this in the basement to)

Run soft tubing behind motherboard tray.

Install fans.

Hope you all enjoy this update, if you have any questions or feedback leave a message below.

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been moving in to a new work shop and been having a little dabble at 3d printing. I have bought Anet A8 this will be for my next project.

I am still awaiting my last product, if I don’t have this in the next two weeks then that sponsor will miss out and I will get the final photos completed.

Just want to say a big thank you once again to Alphacool for supplying the watercooling component’s and Nanoxia for the fluid and for supporting both brands have given me.

Hey everyone,

I would like to say a big thank you to thermaltake for sponsoring this build they have supply all the fans. I am not a big fan of RGB but I like how much flexibility you have to get the right colour for the theme plus the riing plus fans look great. Thanks again for your support.

I know I said in the last update we are near the end which we still are, but I decided to paint the 360 rads, I have painted these purple and added the alphacool logo in green to match the cables and the theme.

I need to say a big thank you to To the wire - custom sleeving for doing all the cable, he has done a great job.

While the case was transported to to the wire - custom sleeving they did say that some fluid had leaked. I was not to worried about this as the build had been drained. When I got the case back I stripped the full case down to trace the leak and to get the build ready for the final loop. I snapped a bit of the custom motherboard tray when I took the custom res out of the case. I was gutted. I have order more perplex which I should get any day now, I will do a new custom motherboard tray this weekend for the build, I could have glue it but I want the build to be near enough to what I have picture it to be it will never be perfect.

I am really happy on how the front of the case look with the custom front air vents and the tempered glass it really show off the thermaltake riing 140 fans.

I have added a few photos below. I do need your help I have painted one of the thermaltake fans, purple and green I am thinking of having these on the 360 rad above the motherboard, but I am not 100% feeling it, your input would be great.

That's it for this week I will make sure the next post is up on monday.

I do like Thermaltake Riing fans, they have very even light all over no major bright spots really.

Also my favourite colour is purple, so good choice on that for your radiator thumb.gif
