It's time for another build log! wheee.gif

I'm moving the green lantern into a BH8 this week so I'm going back to my original idea for my S8 with a purple/white build. This is going to be an AMD Ryzen 7 build with a gtx1080.

I've been working on cables and sleeving for a while already and only have a few fans and a sata cable left to sleeve. I'm planning to use the new primochill fluid, it's supposed to work with complex loops so I'm excited to try it out, but won't be able to finish the build until they actually launch the fluid.

Here's some sleeving pics for now, I'll get more once I start working on it later this week. thumb.gif








I also picked up one of the new rads from primochill and a set of fittings, got a great deal on the fittings, less than $45 for that set.

I got some hardware/waterblock pics. I still need to finish gutting the case and sand/paint the big rad. I ordered some purple countersunk washers to replace the blue ones one the cpu block. Hopefully I got the sizing right. Also picked up an m.2 heatsink from EK.

I got the purple countersunk washers for the cpu block. They are M4 in case anybody else picks up this block and wants to change them out.

I finished the sleeving on the fans and also got the pump sleeved and reservoir assembled. I wanted all white fans for this build and these bitfenix fans were the only option I could find that weren't over $20 each.

They look good! Not many white fans available. I think the EK Vardars are the only other ones that come to mind.

Yeah, I almost got those too, but was able to find the bitfenix for less than $9 each and just couldn't pass it up. With this much rad space it really won't matter anyway so may as well save a few bucks. thumb.gif

Just got some new doors for my S8. Now I have all 3 sets tongue.gif

I'm running blitz part 2 through the rads. Getting ready for that vue coolant to be released. I'll probably finish this up while I have a couple days off for thanksgiving, assuming I can get the fluid by then. thumb.gif
