Looking good !
The led accents are sick AF.
Lol, i don't know where we come from and i sent a mail to EK telling bout what i was doing and previous projects of mine and what my intensions were with this project. I don't wanna go into details but thats the general idea what i send. I don't know what other people do.
Thanks mr Hagedoorn
Glad you like it scooter man
Dude, the red light on the dark is absolutely amazing, makes it look unique
New update! Getting close to the end of the Coolermaster competition! Have been very busy the last weekend, spent around 30hrs on the computer on saturday and sunday and had to take today off work just to get it up and running. Taking it to get photographed tomorrow so i can get some proper shots of it for the competition.
Sorry if its not in order the update, a bit stressed due to still having a lot to do before the photo shoot.
Anyways, gonna start with the parts. A lot of the parts are from my previous build but there are also new parts
Coolermaster test bench
Asus Maximus GENE-V
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1600MHz
128gb OCZ Vertez 2 SSD
Corsair AX850 PSU
2 X Gainward GTX570
2 x Lamptron FC5 V2
4 x Schyte Gentle Typhoon
A lot of leds
2 x EK-FC5X0 GTX GW Backplate - Black
2 x EK-RES X3 150
2 x EK-DDC X-TOP CSQ - Acetal
2 x EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)
1 x EK-MOSFET ASUS M5G - Acetal + Nickel
1 x EK Supremacy cpu block
1 x EK Dual parallell sli block
2 x laing ddc pumps
A lot of EK fittings
Mayhem's Aurora tharsis red
Sleeved the led wires, the cat loves it
Installed in the acrylic
The lamptrons installed
Mounted the rads and the fans to an xspc rad mount, quite a tight fit, a little bit over 1mm to spare
Plumbing done on loop 1, was a bit more difficult than i first expected. Ignore the blue cables, resleeved them after
Had to check what it looked like with the Hyper212 that i've used during the build. Had to remove all the water cooling so i could get all the sizes right
So many cables, had to cut every cable and shorten them, they would not fit in the case as is.
Tried to get hold of some genuine CoolerMaster sticker but it was a lot harder than i expected. So contacted Coolermaster and got approved to make my own stickers. Was gonna go with normal stickers but due to the case is slightly textured it wouldn't look good so went with these polyurethane based "3D" stickers. Got a few different color combinations made so i could pick the one i liked the most. Big thanks to Mr Glasberg over at staffans.fi for making these priority 1 and making them in more or less a day
Assembled and more or less ready to go. Still have a lot to do but this will have to do for the competition.
Leak test ongoing
Don't wanna post too many pictures of the bench, gonna wait until tomorrow after the "proper" photos are taken. Next update most likely tomorrow.
Lovely Build matey, looking forward to the 'proper' photos of it all!
Thats a lot of hard work m8 you put in there
competition is getting harder and harder but seeing this you got a good change i say
good job and keep those pics coming.............
Thx! Yeah, i've spent a few 100hrs already and still feel i need to spend a lot more in order to finish it, but hopefully it will get me a prize in the competition. If not its ok, i love building stuff Still have some mods to do after the competition which i would have liked to be done before but that's allright
Hey guys, pics will be up tomorrow from the photo shoot, until then a teaser
and yes, i know i need to bleed the system again
Cant wait it looks very nice
So here we go. As I'm looking through the pictures taken yesterday i realize i should have taken a lot more. Anyways, here are most of them without posting very similar looking ones. Enjoy!
Without leds on. Sadly a few fingerprints on it but better with them there than photoshopped away
Still have a few things to do with the computer but this will be it for the coolermaster mod competition. Wanna try to make my ram look like the gpu support with the same red glow Not sure if its gonna work but gonna give it a go, also have some other ideas. But will have a weeks or two break now, need to sort out the rest of my life that has been left aside while building this
Absolutely Beautiful with a capital B.
Since you don't have too much sponsoring going on I can allow this as entry for Guru3D's Rig of the Month. December has seen little entries thus far so if you submit you'll be eligible for a nice price (depending on other entries of course).
Thank you so much Mr Hagedoorn! I will send it in tomorrow morning! getting very late here
Edit: Sent in an entry for the rig of the month!
Wow that is absolutely outstanding. Smashing build. Really liking this, a thing of beauty. Well done Ace_Finland.
rig of the month maybe?
I submitted it to it but have no idea who else have submitted
