Re: Finished - Project Black and Sleek - by rewarder
This project received a little upgrade. I've got my hands on two 60cm LED strips from Cablemod and now the lighting finally looks the way I imagined it. Apparently ... stay tuned for some more pictures
Finished - Project Black and Sleek - by rewarder
ok then ... I finally got it done.
After having the memory installed with the EK monarch blocks I didn't like them, which made me think what I'd have at hand to use instead. Luckily I had a quad channel kit of Corsair Vengeance RGB. I didn't want to use them in the first place because the lighting is very prominent and the shape of the heatspreaders is a bit too aggressive for my taste. But whatever ... it's the best alternative, so let's go.
I'd like to point out that I went for a parallel loop. I simply love it how clean it makes builds look when there are two tubes connecting the CPU block with the GPUs in parallel manner.
In the beginnin I also planned on using a 150mm reservoir. I actually already had that one installed when I though about trying out the 250mm that was in lying in a shelv, staring at me. After putting that one in place it was a no brainer to go with this one. It just has the perfect height.
Although it was my plan to start with this build already last week-end it got a little delayed, but here are a few pics on the building process.
I have to say I really like those two 1080's with completely black cooler!
As you can see I also installed the memory with the EK Monarch heatspreaders. But I have to say I don't like the looks of them that much That's actually a real pity ... I'm not sure yet what memory I'm going to use in the end
I finally decided how I'm going to arrange the loop. Since I've ordered the little tube connectors for the GPUs from EK I'be running the water parallel through the GPU and blocks and the CPU. This way I can arrange the tubing neatly and the loop is going to look clean.
