I recently saw black golden builds, but just a few. Wondering why this combination isn't been doing that often, because it looks very nice, I decided to try one.
Designed it first with many pictures of the components by putting them together with PaintShop, to see how things would work and color scheme would look like and decide which parts to paint.
Only thing here is that the airflow could be optimized. But putting the radiator in the top mounting bracket doesn't look good to me. When doing so, I could mount three of the Corsair AF120 in the front, what causes a much better airflow.
Now there is only one AF in the bottom front (controlled by GPU temperature) and two SP above for the radiator.
The three AF in the top are just starting to spin when CPU or GPU temperature is above a certain point.
The AF140 on the back is spinning with 28% (323 rpm) and goes up regarding the GPU temperature as well.
GPU is 70°C max., 35° C idle.
CPU package is 55° C max, 23° C idle.
I painted all the heatsinks on the mainboard, H100iv2 and radiator apllications, fan rings, thumb screws and mainboard screws, front panel of the graphics card and topper aluminium bridges of the DDR4.
Removed the white stickers on the DDR4.
The cable extensions are from Silverstone (8- and 6-pin) and BitFenix (24-pin).
Exchanged the PCI slot covers with GELID Solutions PCI Slot incl. Filter and added TOLKO® ORGANZA black fabric to them for more filtering abilities
TOLKO® ORGANZA black fabric added to the complpete front filter
And the SSD cover is a custom made one by ColdZero.eu.
