Inspired by the Q Cars / Sleeper vehicles where a tame exterior belies a very sorted interior; that feeling when you open up a vintage muscle car and see a spotless engine bay I'm going to document the build / mod of my new main rig, I decided on an upgrade for VR, haven't had a custom loop in 10 years and had some time on my hands so what the heck. Obligatory pile of boxes Core Case: Enthoo Evolv ATX Mobo: Asus Maximus IX Apex GPU: EVGA 1080Ti Founders Edition CPU: 7700k (Already at 5.1ghz with a Corsair H110) SSD1: Samsung 960 Evo 1TB SSD2: Samsung 960 Evo 1TB PSU: Seasonic Platinum 1000 Watercooling Dual 360 Radiator Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 High Speed Fans 12mm Acrylic Tubing Bitspower / Barrow Fittings Singularity Computers Core Single Radiator Mount Protium Reservoir Protium D5 Frosted Pump Top Protium D5 Pump Cover Aquacomputer Cuplex PVD Vision Waterblock Kyrographics Pascal GPU Waterblock Kyrographics Backplate D5 Aquabus Pump Aquaero 6 LT Controller Custom Cables MDPC-X Platinum Grey / Carbon BTI The Singularity stuff is going to be colour matched to the PVD Waterblock, I'm also going to investigate whether I can get a colour change to 'stick' with the GPU block. I'm not convinced as the nickel is very highly polished and I obviously don't want to take it the plate off but we'll give it a whirl and I'll keep the acetone handy. Not sure on the second radiator yet, I hope it's something better than the EK 360SE I must use on the top (space) but I'm not sure how many mm I've got spare to fit a better one on the front. Just to preempt a couple of possible questions SSD's would be a Intel 600P if I could but they're green. Happy with NVMe main drive because of small file performance for builds (fuck AV kills it though). Want it black. doesn't leave with many choices, don't care over $100 AUD. The fans were probably a mistake, I live in Australia atm though and it's really hard to find some stuff. Haven't chosen fittings yet owed to availability but I also want to get some stuff in and work out how I'm going to do it. I may change the PSU, the weird pin-out on the ATX for seasonic might make it impossible for a flawless cable, still researching this.
