Ok Folks,

this was supposed to be a simple htpc build on the new X2M caselabs case (black) I got. Was not my intention to make a build log in the first place but decided to go ahead because there is not much builds on this case so far and could not just put the old hardware there without any mods...So...here we go. As the name suggested I am looking for a visual very much like this:




let's see if I can pull this off.

The hardware:

Build setup/parts listing :
Case and accessories
▪ CaseLabs Nova X2M Black with custom paint for old copper (inverted)
▪ CaseLabs 120.2 Flex-Bay Rad Mount
▪ XXL Clear window


Components
▪ MB Asus H97I-plus
▪ PSU corsair hx750i
▪ 32 GB ddr3 ram corsair
▪ 1 titan
▪ 1 samsung evo 1 tb
- 1 4 tb HD Western Digital green
▪ Cpu core i7 4790K

Cooling
▪ EK Vardar f3-120 custom painted
▪ ST30 OCool 240 mm rad (2x)
▪ D5 Aquacomputer USB Pump (1x)
▪ EK-D5 X-TOP CSQ - clear plexi
▪ Shoggy Sandwich
▪ EK-HD Tube 10/12mm 500mm
▪ Heatkiller IV copper anthracite cpu block
▪ EK Titan block short clear/nickel
▪ Ek BLACK backplate
▪ Custom coolant (most likely a clear shade of blue/green)
▪ Aquacomputer Flow sensor
▪ Bitspower c47 with some 45 and 90 degrees from EK and Bitspower.
- Ek 150 reservoir

Lights: custom made 5050 bright white leds in superbrightleds mount with frosted top
Cables: most likely will ask Joey from Ensourced to make some.

Subbed, love copper

I am a Marxist. Not the Sanders/Sweden/state bureacracy kind, but the workers' democratic control over the means of production kind.

I often use the debates I get into on these forums to demonstrate logical fallacies to to my students and debate teams I coach. Beware - your arguments are under scrutiny of adolescents and teenagers!

Can't really tell that it's copper from your pics Gabe. But am on my phone so it could be a lighting effect that's washing out at this end. thinking.gif

Thought you were going EK for your Radiators? mellowsmiley.gif

The ek was a test for the paint job. This build is using leftover parts that you known we start to collect after years of building rolleyes.gif Since I only have one 240 ek pe but do have 2x Ocool ST30 I decided to go with 2x 240 st 30 (front and top). thumb.gif

welcome here mate wink.gif

The rad is looking familiar to the statue with the blue wash coming through like on the dragon
