Build

custom nano s beast

by Fabzsant0s

Description

built this pc in september 2016 decided i want to get into water cooling and attempt my first custom loop make a sleek white , blue and chrome build.

first step was finding the right parts and copper pipe for this build decided on the 6700k and delid and use a z270i mb for the extra m.2 slots and the ekwb mono block. went for bitspower royal blue fittings and 12mm copper pipe that i had to order from the uk via ebay since the australian standard is 1/2inch(12.7mm) and no one in australia can supply 12mm OD copper pipe cost me $160aud for 2.5metres.

spray painter by trade so painting the case,fans res etc was a simple task and used a water based paint its a one coat system so a heavy build up would not happen on the sp120 fans painted the rings a blue pearl to match the fittings and break up the white a bit.

next step was bending the copper pipe had to heat the pipe to a cherry red and then let cool to soften the copper so it was bendable after all the fail bends i finally got them all right and sent them away for chrome and polish work.

few mods like the front io was removed for a nice clean look and psu cover made

still arriving is cable combs for the 24pin and a custom side panel and some stickers

No psu, no problem, when I'm clutching a 1v5 on csgo that pressure between my bum generates enough power to run NYC for a week.

Nice upgrade on old from new in all seriousness. Its amazing to see what it was to that sleek white it is now. Hope it lasts you a long while!

Bobaloohoo 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

You've given me a few ideas for a project next weekend. Bake my case white/blue, not because yours is, but because that goes with my cables, and tint my window on my case.

This is nice, +1

Bobaloohoo 2 Builds 2 points 9 months ago

Might I add, were sporting almost the same rig aside from the loop and case. I like your choices!

Jäßßäwöçkëë 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

That's one hell of a transformation. I love it!

AaronBu7 1 point 9 months ago

Great build! Just being picky, your pump power cables are not sleeved, just left exposed. Other than that, it looks like you put a lot of effort into it. Good Job!

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Iv got sleeving coming still a few things im waiting on to clean the build up

EvanRedman 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Wow, now that is a huge upgrade from the before and after! Congrats on the feature, and Great build!!

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Waterish 1 point 9 months ago

Looks great! Can I just ask what the wallpaper is that you're using?

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

metro exodus wallpapper

Waterish 1 point 9 months ago

Thanks!

MajesticSepticEagle 1 point 9 months ago

doesn't the spray paint impede the fan performance?

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

It would if you were to use canned paint and put 3-4 coats i ised a waterbased paint and it covers in 1 coat and since its water based once the water drys the thickness of the coat is about 13 microns pre sure 1 micron is 0.001 of a millimeter so it is fine

Gooberdad 8 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Stunning. Awesome modifications.

Thumbs up.

Boith 3 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Dat tubing tho. Sexy.

LuxUmbra37 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Absolutely beautiful custom work in this rig. I am blown away by the amount of hard work and love that went into this build. +1 from me.

Fabzsant0s, you will ride eternal, shiny and chrome.

someta 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Seriously, though. This is beautiful. Definitely a +1.

Australia Hype!

Beautiful colour scheme, red/black is overused and I'd say the same for black/green. Black, white and blue is the way of the future. (As stated in my own build Mont Blanc)

The first picture of the painted fans looked scary...as it looked like the paint built up and solidified; but the final product is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and enthusiasm, worthy for that Predator you've hooked it up to.

Fantastic work, enjoy your feature.

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

They were original fan i had some ml120s with blue led sold them and got sp120 added new photos to see how they looked after paint

Really nice, though I (personally) would have gone with a larger, maybe 2TB? at the least drive, and even an SSD at that price point

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Yea storage upgrade is next on the list 2x m.2 and a few 2.5 1tb wd black

LonghornAlamo2040 1 point 9 months ago

Hot damn, that is a beautiful build! You did a great job!

TrikkStar 1 point 9 months ago

Any particular reason you went with chromed copper pipes aside from aesthetics? They look great but I'm just curious if there are any advantages of using copper over PEGT.

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Nope only looks really wanted a diffrent looking build for this nano s every loop iv seen has been pre much a clone of the pauls hardware sam rads same petg bends etc wanted something diffrent

jak-jak 2 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Hey Man, really well done water loop and custom PSU shield. ( : I like the color scheme too!

blacklagann 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

How did you mod the front IO to just have the power button?

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

Plastic welded all the other holes then used a plastic filler to fill all the imperfections coat of primer then painted it

blacklagann 1 Build 1 point 9 months ago

Was it easy/cheap? Ive considered doing it for awhile but didnt have an idea of how until your post

Fabzsant0s submitter 1 Build 2 points 9 months ago

I fix plastic bars etc all the time since im a panelbeater/painter all you need is a soldeing iron and the right plastic
