Thanks man, really loving it so many people are liking the build so much. its much appreciated.
The LL series fans are quite decent actually don't know if they perform as good as other fans optimised for static pressure, but I run them at around 50% and temps idol at around 30° on the cpu, thought this was quite good especially for a hot chip that's not been delided, and hit the mid 60°'s when running cinebench under full load at 4.9Ghz
Thanks man. But your definatly right was a bold decision to go with the 4 120 rads but looks cool as hell. watching those tubes fill up one after the other was fun to watch as well haha.
if I was to guess for this build, probably around £500 for the components like the waterblocks pump rads and res. and maybe about the £250 mark for the fittings. but that's just a rough guess.
haha that's a typo, was supposed to be Z97
To be honest man I lost count on how much I spent on fittings and stuff, if you look at the parts list I totally gave up halfway through I didn't even list the waterblock
Like I said man purely got this power supply to match the aesthetic of the build, I don't plan on being on it for 24/7 at all, but got myself a good power supply that's gonna last me for years to come.
Haha good spot there man. Had so much sag there, come up with an idea to not use them but didn't think of it till it was filled up
Thanks for the love dude, had a great time building that radiator setup. really happy people appreciate it as much as I do!
Cheers man, that is a burnt out mobo I pulled out of a friends PC
Gigabyte Z970 Ultra Durable been repurposed for some decor.
Haha, I keep on looking at it and think to myself the same thing.
to be honest I mainly got the PSU for match the aesthetic of the build. but in my opinion every one should have a decent power supply. 80 + gold upwards and people aren't gonna regret it.
Thanks man, really happy you appreciate the build and the fittings.
Never got to use bitspower just because of the price tag on them lol, but really apreciate the simplicity of the barrow fittings they are mint.
Thanks man :), would be well sweet if it could lol.
Cheers man :D, glad you liked it. Yeah I had to Google it and have a look for myself they do look a lot similar lol.
That's sweet man, really like that case :). I just had a look there on the NZXT site and looks like it's got more than enough support for a good water cooling rig, you wouldn't really need to make any compromise like you would with the s340. If you decide to build a custom loop in your hyper beast would love to see it :).
Yeah man I was on the same boat as you aye, I got the s340 elite cause it was the best looking case I could afford. But got the impulse to go full custom loop and just went for it, I'm just luck my wife doesn't really know how much all the stuff cost lol.
Yeah man you are probably right, it would be a bit better to have smaller diameter tubing. I was thinking of going down to 12 OD 10 ID. But my temps are good, I get about 25- 30 degrees on idle and and 40-55 on maximum load, depending on the ambient temperature it varies but been having some hot weather where I live and this was normal temps for my pc when it was cooled with aio's. Just hit up your YouTube channel, I have to ask "piño ka ba?" Lol :), because I am lol.
That does look sweet :), it looks like it involves doing some work with a dermal as well though, I always thought if it's riveted they are a nightmare to get out but if there is a special tool for that it would be handy even if it was just to get rid of the drive cages for more room to route cables or space for a pump. It would be something to look into, but if I was to get a 360 in the front I would probably look into getting another case lol.
Yeah you got me there :) I do like to play a bit of music now and again. It's a set of M-audio bx5's and M-audio M-track 2x2 you mistaken for the Apollo twin. https://m.soundcloud.com/anomalouscadence/sounds-from-friday-afternoon
There's a link to my music, hope you enjoy it man :)
Lol, thanks buddy, I'm really glad you like the name, its actually a song by a musician called "shpongle". I thought the name really suited the whole theme of the build as well as its genre. But your hella right about the s340, if they made the drive cage removable I bet you would see a lot more water cooled builds on this case.
No worries man. I'm not to sure but I think the h440 is the model up from the s340, I think it's got better water cooling support and extra support for more drive cages and that, but I could be wrong I've not seen the full specs for the h440.
Yeah man, it's 16mm tubing I'm using and your right it is fat as hell, at first I thought I was just gonna be able to just use bends on the tubing and not use any rotary fittings, but the 16's are so fat I couldn't get the bends tight enough in some parts and had to use rotary fittings and extensions to complete the build. The fluid is actually just distilled water with biocide and uv laser green dye, and emerald green dye by mayhem. I checked out the anubis build, that is sick man. I really it, it's nice to see a pc in black and gold it very unique colour scheme.
Aha! Nice to know there is a fellow shpogle fan here!
That is actually a really good idea lol, it's good to know these things in hindsight I might do that next time I drain the system, I still have a couple packs of tubing left for it. I was planning on buying a new rad or even worse mount it on the outside of the case. But I will definitely give that a go when I get the chance. Cheers man :)
Thanks for that man, really glad you like it so much and is in your taste, nice to know you appreciate the theme the same way I do :)
Really glad you like the build and colour of the fluid. Simplicity was probably key in such a small build was just wanting to get the tubing around the loop as easy as possible without having to over complicate in such a tight space. Checked your build by the way, it was sweet would love to go I. That direction but space in my living room wouldn't handle it lol.
I love this man, don't get to many black and gold going about and this one looks sweet. Well happy you got me to look at this :)
Thanks man, your probably right when the system is powered of the green isn't to great with rest of the build, but come night time with the LED'S on and I use it I'm really happy with the colour, I might add some more dye to it at some point try and get a better shade.
Thanks man, appreciate it :)
Thanks man, loved doing a white and black build, really get to play about and experiment with different colours in terms of lighting and hopefully mess about with different coloured fluids. And yeah your right about the S340, it's a challenge to work with when it comes to water cooling, had to be very careful when it came to buying parts and making sure they fit.
I call it mountain due green lol, or shrek p**s. It was my attempt at trying to get the coolant to match the colour of lighting on the motherboard.
No worries, No this was my first time. It was actually quite fun to do. I didn't have to sand it down or anything just prepped the surface by washing it with sugar soap. And applied light costs of primer sanding it down between coats to get rid of any rough areas, and the same process when applying white primer, and just topped it of with a light coat of lacquer.
Lol, I didn't know myself that it wasn't out yet, I've seen pics on the web. Phanteks got the good idea though making tempered glass versions of there best cases.
Im loving it :). want to do something like this for my next build. can see it really takes a lot of effort. Im diggin it though! +1
Thank you very much. Yeah it does I must say lol, I am just using the camera on my phone, and doesn't seem to look as good with the case lights on as it does in real life.
I didn't take any videos of myself cutting it, but here is the tutorial I watched to cut the acrylic.
And with magnetic strips I lined them along the full length of three sides of the acrylic sheet, leaving the bottom to leave a space to put my fingers under. This makes lifting the side panel of much easier.
Thanks :), there is rgb lighting in there but I have really only ever used purple. It really is a nice colour in a computer lol.
Yeah that is my own custom paint job there, I also wrapped some parts with pixel camo along with a custom made backplate I made at work lol.
I have to say the tempered glass edition does look very nice, but what I did here was cut a piece of dark grey tinted acrylic and used magnetic strips to hold the side window up. It gives a nice finish because there are no visable screws.
Hey man, word up on the titanium x! Great board (same as mine lol). I was wanting to ask how your ram is holding up being two different brands? I have avexir cores in and want to get some more ram put in but I don't want to get another set of the avexirs cause I think there would just be to many LED's on the go. I was wanting to go with corsair vengeance or hyperx fury. As long as they are the same capacity and frequency that should be fine aye?
No worries man, hope you well on your build!
And it was Halford own brand of grey primer I used if that's any help. I used their own brand of white and clear primer as well.
Yeah, it looks like there is enough clearance there for an optical drive, thats just a guess though I've just put another radiator there since I took those pics but I am pretty sure you can. And when I did the paint job I tried the grey primer first cause depending on what brand you use it might stick to the surface or won't, I was just lucky it stuck and managed to do it without having to sand everything down.
Now that I have had it on for a while it's quite crap, even the idle temp wasn't impressive as what I thought it would be. I am definitely gonna see about changing the water cooler.
it actually slipped right in ;) with a lot more room to spare, I think these cases can hold up to a 13 inch GPs.
