Description

This is my first time doing hard-line tubing, so it took some practice. But I'm fairly happy with the result.

I unfortunately am using a EVGA SLI V2 bridge. My new SLI Bridge is on backorder and will arrive late august!

I actually had to custom drill the top of the case to hold 3 fans above the radiator. Its enclosed in that top silver piece. The first time I drilled and mounted everything, I accidentally nicked a piece of the radiator 360's fins and sprung a leak.

I primarily play Virtual Reality games on this machine with my HTC Vive, and record them for Youtube!

I hope you all like it!

funny u say that... I wrapped them in the sleeves prior.. I need to get extensions for the power cables for the monitors. To fix that white outlets. Any suggestions?

Just any old extensions should work, if you can you should try and post a power strip with a longer cord behind those monitors, I see a lot of people who have triple monitor setups practice this.

This post is good enough for a feature but Tech Source just posted his $5800 build. That'll most likely be featured over yours :\

Check out the 2014 build. Same monitors. If you see my saved partslist. I have a set of monitors Im thinking of getting around Christmas! Basically right now a 144hz and two IPS

Looks great! The only minor thing I would change, and this is being super critical, is the sleeved cables for your graphics cards are the only cables in the entire case breaking up the lines of the watercooling. If you curl them back under your graphics card and feed them out the back they will not only give a full view of the entire cooling system, but will match the curvature of the other sleeved cables in your case. Looks great though!

That tube in pic 2 which runs from the gpu to the rad, was it intentional coz it looks kinda slant!

  • 46 months ago

bottom one? Yeah intentional. Based on the Y adapter at the 1. for the drain valve 2. So I did a slight slant.

Icemodz.eu!

Great guy. There was a month delay due to an error on his part. But he more than made it up for me :)

PETG or Acrylic?

Also, in a few months I'm going to be doing my first PC build + First HARDLINE Custom loop. Should I use valves on the inlet/outlets of stuff or should I bend the tubes to 90 degrees. What'd u recommend?

  • 46 months ago

Use this tool if you want. Its expensive but helped me a ton in bending! PrimoChill​ Rigid Acr​ylic / PET​G Bender -​ Versatile​ Rigid Tub​ing Bendin​g/Jig

Also, many people just buy the inlet/outlet stuff. Then they just have to run basically hard tubing in straight lines. :)

This is what I used. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hd-tube-10-12mm-500mm-2-pcs If you check my pcpart list in the build it has everything listed. I realize its a bit difficult to read :)

Btw, you have any recommendations for custom cables? I'm looking at Mainframe Customs rn

  • 46 months ago
  • 1 point

i used icemodz.eu. Great guy. He made a mistake and I was delayed a month on my order. But he made it up to me. Also icemodz has a custom cable configurator. I don't think Mainframe has that. I could be wrong.

  • 46 months ago

Yea, Mainframe has it too, I'll probably go for mainframe customs for the combs and cables. Is icemodz just one individual?

  • 46 months ago

Not sure. I think its a group of people. But I spoke with the owner.

Dude, I took a look at your build and I must say. That's how I would want mine to look at best, it's absolutely beautiful man. I would have chosen another case but still. +1

How's your mobo performing? My Strix X99 killed my CPU... And it doesn't seem like an uncommon problem.

Great build, really good job on the hardline tubing. I have a similar build (same case, cpu, gpu's and EKWB watercooling) got a pe360 rad in front and a se240 in the top, fans around 1200RMP and my temps peak in the high 65-70 C. I have the cpu and cards overclocked. What temps are you getting? is this normal?

A red paint would be awesome in your sli bridge and on your ram

Practice! Buy plenty of hardline tubes. I 'd recommend the diy kit from EKWB. they give you the parts to put inside the tube to keep it from caving in when you do a bend. You also need a heat gun, and I'd recommend a dremel, vs the saw that EK gives you with that DIY kit. I used a bending kit (listed in my parts as well) But it only helps so much.

I modified the top. drilled holes to fit the 3 fans at the top. Other than that. Really nothing! Its a beautiful case.
