Description

Last revision of my Coconut Lime and the last optical and visible technical updates before going to version 3.1 by adding an i7 4790k.

I upgraded from Corsair Hydro H75 to a H105 in combination with Noctua NF-F12 IPPC-3000 in combination with Noctua chromax.white.
In the process of doing so i also decided to adjust my custom paintings.
I went with a white CPU cooler accent ring, green mounting bracket with white screws, alternating green and white screws on the card expansion slots and a white GPU backplate.
I installed a low RPM BeQuiet Shadow Wings 120mm as exhaust fan in the back, where the H75 was before, as well as another one as intake in the bottom for additional air supply straight to the GPU.
Last but not least the build got lit wit a multicolor LED stripe.

As i said in the description of version 2.2, i planned on adding another GTX 980, but i struggle with the downsides of SLI systems. Guess i'll be waiting for Pascal and decide then, wether to go next gen or to profite from another price drop on used 980s. I'd like to hear your comments on this...

Love the build, but why the Pi in your computer? Pi attracts all sorts of bugs! +1

That graphics card looks amazing.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

Sure hope it does! ; )

This. This is a sexy.
Really, wow. This is awesome! I love custom painted builds. I would say this is one for the featured list. +1

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

Well, it kinda already was featured with version 2.2.

SpecificAlduin 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Okay.

Grass_Cutter 3 points 35 months ago

Amazing build. The GPU really stands out. The cable management is just amazing and the colour combination is great too. You should submit your setup to Tech Source for setup or pc wars.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

PC Wars? I'm more of an pacifist.

Something tells me this might be the next featured build. ;)

+1

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Thank you! : )

twinn 1 Build 2 points 35 months ago

Wow! I'm not usually into green themes, but you've done beautiful work with your colour design.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Now you are! : P

Vivilacqua1 1 Build 2 points 34 months ago

I'm liking that gpu mod, very well done with nice contrast between the white and green.

Otherwise, nice clean build. +1

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Nice to hear that from a mobo painter! ; )

Vivilacqua1 1 Build 2 points 34 months ago

Well, I only did that because the blue didn't go with the rest of the build and I was just like "**** it, I'll just do the while thing." :)

Ahsen 1 Build 2 points 34 months ago

Hate math but love the build 10/10

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 2 points 34 months ago

I assure you, we're brothers in hate! ; )

Pic 2 and 7, stunning.

As with your prior versions, always nice seeing coconut, lime, great looking build that gets better!

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

thx!

You should do a custom loop next. White fittings with a green coolant would be beautiful

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

Althought i'd really love to do a full loop build one day, it won't happen with this build. This one is what is it.

Stereotypical_Whale 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

OH MY GOD, THAT NAME IS HILARIOUS!

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

It is?! : /

Stereotypical_Whale 1 Build 1 point 35 months ago

cocunut lime, idk why its so funny but it is.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 35 months ago

; )

Stereotypical_Whale 1 Build 1 point 34 months ago

Ima gonna build an orange themed build and call it peach ice cream.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Doit!
But Linus just did...

JoeyHall 3 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

I could imagine a rigid tubing loop in there with pastel line green liquid :O still looks amazing though

Someone0011 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

i like the green and white colors and what is the led lighting you are using

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

Totally no-name-brand.

Someone0011 2 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

So you ripped it out of a toy and taped it on

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

No. I bought it at Metro.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

This here is pretty much what i bought. Then i cut myself a 4 pin SATA power plug with ~3 inches of wires from an unused cable and connected it to one of those, plugged it into the control box and connected it to a free 15 pin SATA port via adapter.

philphaser submitter 12 Builds 1 point 34 months ago

I'd like to see some numbers on that! As far as i'm concerned, it got a heathly amount of 16 GB of common 1600MHz Ram with a latency of 9 (!).
