Thanks your build is very nice too smile.gif This case is decent, I mainly went with it over caselabs because I like the look plus it's white, it reminds me of the old VoodooPC cases from the mid 2000's. It also helps I got it for half price, lol. Only big issue was that the top fan spacing was wrong, I had to drill all of the holes out. What's bizarre though is that the front fit perfectly. The rads and the case (the front, at least) are 15.5mm spacing.The case is amazingly light for what it is, and can pack a lot into a 20x24" space. Cable management could be a little better. Everything in the case is held together with these little allen bolts, so you'll need the right set of wrenches for it.

Merry Christmas everyone smile.gif



Decked out in all red, love RGB LED tongue.gif

I went ahead and finished up the wiring. Used some butt splices to make an extra long power button:




Cables managed:



Invisible from the front, well except for the monster VGA cables smile.gif



I put the sides on and everything is done!





Looks great biggrin.gif

An update to my computer, I changed out the water last weekend, and replaced the GPU connection with a proper fitting. I also added a 90 degree fitting to the 2nd GPU outlet which makes the tubing easier to deal with. Surprisingly little dust after 6 months, much less than my old air cooled rig. Running the fans at 800 rpm probably helps. I tossed the anticyclone, it wouldn't stay put in the res and looked like a sponge floating around. So far, hasn't had an effect on temps. This loop is overkill even for a pair of 1080 Tis and a 7980XE! I run out of heat transfer through the CPU thermal paste long before I run out of rad or fan.

Changed my water once again today. Thinking about moving the CPU to a 2990WX. It would cost a little single thread performance but I feel like I would rather support AMD's business model than Intel's. A 9980XE is too similar to what I've already got and I might gain 200 MHz from solder. The W-3175X is MIA for now, four grand, may not even be soldered, and the power consumption on my 18 cores is already frightening, let alone 28. With that much heat I don't think I could get much above 4.3-4.4 using "normal" water cooling. So not hugely motivated to update the CPU, but thinking about it.

As for the GPUs, the Titan RTXs are tempting, but there is no waterblocked version yet and I'm too lazy to put sticky tape on all the memory things lol. Plus I'm not sure I want to support Nvidia's business model as the prices have jumped so rapidly. Even something little like the SLI (or NVLink) bridge not being free anymore, feels like a ripoff. Maybe I'll wait to see what AMD comes up with, hopefully soon.

I may powder coat the case in the future and change the color scheme. I'm thinking a "blood and dirt" theme, with an earthy brown case, clear tubing, and blood red coolant.

Great build! Wonderful!
Why you didn't paint the copper color element on the backplate ?
