Hi Guys!
Here is another project that I’ve been planning to build since the midwinter time due to lack of spare-time. The components have been laying around for months now. I’ve had enough to stare every single day to them, lol. So I decided to begin at least with a build-log. And off course appreciate your opinions.
To be honest, I was quite unsure and on debate between x299 or x399. And I ended up with Threadripper 1950 X and Asus Rog Zenith Extreme.
Anyways, let’s dig in it and see what it’ll come out of it.

"THE REDRIPPER"

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G3, 80 Plus Gold 1000W, Fully Modular

CHASSIS: JONSBO MOD1 XL Semi-open frame chassis.

SLEEVED PSU CABLES: Shakmods.


WATER COOLING PARTS:

PUMP: Barrow D5 PWM 17W + Byksi pumptop&cover.

GPUBLOCK: Barrow Gtx 1080 Ti FE /Titan X(P) RGB Waterblock

MONOBLOCK: Bitspower Asus ROG Zenith MonoBlock RGB-Nickel.

HARDTUBES: Monsoon PETG Hardline Tube 1/2 x 5/8 Clear 4x pack (90cm).

FITTINGS/ADAPTERS: Monsoon Hardline Economy Compression Fittings, 1/2" x 5/8" 6-Pack (2x red # 2x black packs) with etched logo of my first letters (AK).

RADIATORS: Barrow 2x 360mm x 27mm fullcopper radiators.

I had no idea with what kind of paints to come up with. Did i even need to paint that aluminum brushed authentic case at all? Well, after making a few extra holes on fan holes (expanded a few mm) in front i had to recover it somehow. Then something more complicated came to my mind.

Anodized Color coat, Granite Stone paint, Matt black paint and off course primer.

It's time to assemble all other components to the motherboard and then install it to the chassis. But, before that i need to deal with the bitspower's monoblock. Approximately all bitspower's acrylic water blocks are quite unclear/blurry. Decided to polish it with auto' headlight polisher and here is the result.

Up next there comes the installation of the processor, monoblock, m.2 SSD&DIMM.2 adapter and DDR4 memories to the motherboard.

I was just on debate again to decide to get which kind of m.2 heatsink for that Samsung 512gb 960 pro m.2 . I have noticed that ADATA has an extra-ordinary Semi-passive RGB M.2 heatsink with 50mm fan.

Since ADATA hasn't explained the exact cooling capacity of the XPG Storm (it only says it makes SSDs 25% cooler, and it's not the exact value). EKWB claims that a passive heatsink can reduce temperature by 8-10°C, or even more with appropriate airflow. Since the XPG Storm has its own fan, i would expect it to perform a bit better than passive heatsink-coolers (15-20c cooler). Meanwhile, the 50mm tiny fan runs with 16,500 RPM :). And noise-level is 25 dBa, which is quite noticeable. But, as you see the heatsink is quite thick and it covers motherboard's 24 pin socket. So, i think i'll have to pass this one for now, even though it hurts to not be able to use it.:(.

In this case, it seems like i should go this time with EKWB's passive heatsink.

I was thinking to make a DIY back-lighting-backplate with 3mm acrylic before i install the gpu waterblock. Unfortunately i couldn't use this also with Zenith Extreme because of the distance between PCI-X16 and the DIMM-slots/AIO-shield is too short. And, i have noticed that after i sticked all together:(. Anyways, after all struggles, i decided to go without back-light this time . But, will let you see the process of the "making of " it and final result(s). Additionally, the "Jonbso" logo was also too borring. I found also a solution for that:).



The acrylic i used with backplate and chassis fron logo-plate 3mm thick. I used 800mm sanding paper to make the sharp edges. For the adhesive vinyl stickers i used Silhouette cameo vinyl-cutter. For the good reflecting light i used additionally clear acrylic and also white adhesive vinyl at the backplate, a black vinyl for to dimming the flowing lights and 30cm length of rgb led-strip.

Finally went with old-school style and painted the rear of the backplate with red spray. Well, to be honest , it doesnt look that bad either.

Hello, I need to ask something about Jonsbo MOD1 case.

Is it possible to fit 50mm radiator thick+ 25mm fan on bottom or top because motherboard tray.
Or I need to change to thinner radiator. Problem is because I have fans for such thick radiator GRT 360.
I'm not sure how fast fans work on thinner radaitors, probably more noisy.

I need fast this information.
That's size I need.
