Project Snowfall - First Custom Loop Build - Page 2

post #11 of 27
This is certainly an amazing start to a build! I can't wait to see how it ends up smile.gif

Any reason to not keep the IO cover aside from not wanting to break the heatsink part off to do so?

Also, if you have any trouble with Singularity Computers as far as unavailability for cables (I know that team can get rather busy with projects), hit up Mod-One. They also have top notch cable work.

Thanks Jake
I honestly hadn't paid any attention to the IO plate on the mobo. Force of habit to set it and forget it. Although with this R5E board the IO cover is built in so you only really install a retention plate along the edge of the cut out in the case.
As for cables, the singularity web store simply does not want to work on any computer or browser I try it on -_- No items stay in my cart and it doesnt keep me logged in. Ended up going with cablemods. Not my first choice. I honestly should have gone with mod one. And I might still if these cablemods stuff isn't up to par.

IO shroud might have been a better term. You're correct that the actual cover is built in. The shroud around that, I broke off from the VRM heatsink so I could reattach it while using the monoblock. Of course, I only did so because I liked the look. smile.gif

Mod-One's cables are definitely top quality. If you aren't quite pleased with the Cablemod set, definitely check out Mod-One.

I don't know If I can come to terms with breaking off the heatpipe from the IO shroud. But I agree, it would look a lot nicer...

Yeah, I know a few people didn't keep the IO shroud just due to not wanting to damage it. Here's a picture of the one I used for my personal rig to give you an idea.

It does really does look lovely with the shroud.

Getting into the final stages here
Received some of the last fittings needed, coolant, RGB case lighting, and some additional cable extensions. PSU cables should be arriving in a few days.

Is that a flow meter? I've read a number of times that you want 50mm of straight tubing heading into and out of a flow meeting. You could move the flow meter to the middle of the straight tube running along the radiator.

It is a flow meter. Its position is less than ideal. Unfortunately there is not enough clearance between the top of the basement RAD and the midplate. Otherwise I would have it attached to the straight run there. I will see what the results look like in this position. Will know soon enough.

Build was complete last night. Doing final testing and cable management today. Pictures to follow.

First impressions with cable mod and white pastel... thumb.gifthumb.gif - the mixture of true white LED's plus RGB LED's allows for a nice range of colors and the white works beautifully.
