Description

I started on this build last year and have slowly been changing everything over to water cool. This is my first water cooled build and I enjoyed the adventure. I know the parts aren't up to spec with some of the newer hardware out, but I had already purchased some of the water blocks before the newer parts came out.

With that said the inspiration for this build was to go with something I didn't see often. It started as a black a white build, but then before I could complete it that scheme seemed to be everywhere. I already had to many parts that were in that scheme so I decided to make the coolant a pastel purple. This is where the name "Silent Night" comes from. I know the Corsair fans aren't that quiet at higher RPM's, but the name of the build as nothing to do with the actual noise levels. It is merely in reference to the color scheme.

I hope you guys like it and I will probably be updating the parts once a new line of CPU and GPU's next year or the year after.

Normally I would say this is featured, but you never know with that troll clown Jipster69 holding the feature. He could be there for centuries...

Have my +1 as well

Those are some beautiful bends. +1

Thanks. I went through a lot of pieces trying to get the long bend from the front rad to the graphics card just right. if it wasn't level it was very noticeable. Its not perfect but close enough.

I saw your Red Build very nice work there :)

My bends are embarrassing, but they will be fixed soon. Again, incredible job on the whole build.

I actually tried a few bends like yours where there was 2 really close together and found out that it would never work, they always kinked. That's why the bend that goes from the GPU to the top rad on mine is like an offset. I originally went straight to the back of the case then tried to 90 to the front and then 90 up to go straight into the rad. Idk if that helps you with some ideas for yours once you update it. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for the updates though

Nice. I'm assuming you are into some sort of photo/video editing? It would take me longer to clean up 1 photo than it would to build the entire rig and install the OS.

Yes my day job consists of Product photos/videos, web development/app development.

Did you have to order any additional mounting bracket for the Pump/res combo? Have a Fractal Define S and buying a D5 right now, wondering if it mounts right up or needs something else as this build looks good

Below is a link to exactly what I bought on Amazon. It came with the mounting bracket. I did purchase a longer tube and multi-port top for my build

for your build, did you buy the rads from EK yourself or from another site? i'm looking to update my PC with a custom loop on i need them to be High Performance rads(which i see the 240 is, but is the 360 aswell?) as i intend to OC the system pretty hard. any info would be appreciated!

Holy Night...

Nooo I was going to say that :(

Ah what the heck:

All is calm, all is bright: Round yon Virgin Mother and Child: Holy Infant so tender and mild: Sleep in heavenly peace: Sleep in heavenly peace: Silent night, holy night!: Shepherds quake at the sight: Glories stream from heaven afar: Heavenly hosts sing "Alleluia"!: Christ, the Saviour is born: Christ, the Saviour is born: Silent night, holy night: Son of God, love's pure light: Radiant beams from Thy holy face: With the dawn of redeeming grace: Jesus, Lord,…

I soon look forward to the holidays

My battery on my camera died the day I took these pictures. I haven't had time to get pictures in the dark with RGB lights on. Hopefully will get around to that in the next few days and update the pictures to add those. I have some older pictures with the RGBs before I got different memory and sleeved cables but I didn't want mix those in with the completed build

Yea it was my first time bending tube so didn't want to try something over the top with the bends and this seemed to be the best way with doable bends for first time. Loop direction really doesn't matter the coolant is going to equalize at a certain temp whether or not you go cpu or gpu first.
