[BUILD LOG] Orange Angel [Fractal Define Nano S] [Z77]

So, ill start this build log by saying ive wanted to do this for nearly a year now, my current case (Bitfenix Pandora) is driving my very slight OCD insane. it lacks proper cable management. no matter how pretty it is i can say bitfenix slightly dropped the ball on this one.

Moving on, Ive recently ordered a Fractal Define Nano S on impulse, along with some WC goodies.

Hardware Specs:

i5 2500K

Asus P8z77-I Deluxe WD

Sapphire R9 389X w/ Backplate

Kingston HyperX Black 16 DDR3

Samsung 840 256GB (OS)

WD Black 1TB

Watercooling Components:


EK Supreme LTX (Dazmode Canadian Flag Special Edition)

EK Coolstream PE 240

MCP 35X 10W W/ EK CSQ X-TOP

Bitspower Multi Tank Z 80

Feser orange/UV Orange Tubing

Bitspower Matte Black Rotary Fittings

Feser Matte Black Barbs

Koolance Tube Clamps

Swiftech 8 Way PWM Splitter

5x Cougar Vortex V12-HP PWM 1500RPM Fans

Darkside UV LED Strips


The Plan With this build is to actually do it better compared to my previous ones, starting with this proper build log. any comments along the way are appreciated. but please keep any bashing to yourself.

I've been looking at that case for a build I want to do for my friend. Can't wait to see how yours turns out!
Just curious, why the barbs/clamps instead of compression fittings?

compressions cost alot more (iirc around $15-$22 a piece) if i have the funding for it later ill swap out. im using what i have on hand for the moment.

that and im debating my first foray into hardlining in the future

Interested in how your build goes. I love Fractal Design, and the Define Nano S is probably the only case that could convince me to go back to ITX.

Same here. I plan to get a High end GPU and my CPU is still fine for 4K but would like to go with a ITX case.
