Starting to work on it now. Been doing the boring stuff like flushing components I plan to reuse.

I have been thinking hard between the x5 and x9 with the tempered glass side upgrade.I do want to water cool my next one so space is a big deal to me.I have seen a lot of x9 water cooled but not many x5s so far.

It's more compact than the X9 for sure but it still looks huge. I may need to rearrange my desk.

Out of the box you can fit 4X360 rads in the X5 but it won't take a 480. The X9 will at least take 3X480 rads but I thought that would be overkill for my build.

I started paint work this weekend, I'll post some pictures as soon as I get some things back together.

I feel ya its why i like the case its big enough for my needs.And my next build i could get away with one 360 but if i wanna overclock anything which knowing me i will i need a 2nd rad.

Subbed! That case looks like one that TT got right. Outside of Case Labs, it's tough to find a case that will fit four 360s. Rad overkill is good (got 4 360s and a 240 in my M8). Can't wait to see what you do with this one!

The paint dried and some parts rolled in from performance-pcs. Got some time to do assembly work this weekend.

Here is my ASUS X99 Deluxe with a new coat of paint and a new EK monoblock. Invested in some kryonaut and I hope to see some better temps on overclocks.


I love removable motherboard trays. Can I get a hallelujah!


Here is the motherboard in it's new home. Now comes the measuring and noodling.
