It is designed to fit in the 5.25” drive bay but I couldn’t because of the radiators which take that space and make you remove the mounting brackets of the r6
Last time I used it I left it for a year which isn’t good. Left deposits as the fluid oxidized. Talking to a primo chill rep they recommend swapping every 6 or so months
Just tall - doesn't hold that much honestly. The flatness brings out the VUE fluid movement.
oops I missed a zero lol thanks
Watched Jayz2cents mostly at first - I highly recommend his channel mostly by looking at some of his earlier guide videos - he does more advanced stuff lately. It's honestly in principle fairly easy - just expensive for all the parts. I'm still terrible about perfectly bending the tubes since I do it only sporadically which ends up being the hardest part to get perfect. If you go for the soft tubing it is significantly easier and may be what you want to try. The order of the components rarely matters except for some cpu blocks, like mine, which has a distinct "in" port.
It’s the Aquero pro 6. Great piece of hardware and with amazing accompanying software. Expensive but will probably last decades
I used spray paint from Home Depot (their carried brand might have changed though). Glossy candy pink and matte white for the inside. Then coated on outside with gloss automotive enamel and inside with a matte clear coat. According to internet advice always try to use the same brand so you get weird reactions. Also my mistake was not scuffing/sanding the existing coat enough so I got chipping. Here’s a good guide: https://youtu.be/nSqRpGHMDtw
It is more work but you’ll get a better cover if you take apart the case. Just take pics of where the rivets were to replace them!
Added a few pics from the construction phase including post pic of vinyl wrapped PSU
I think you mean the cut outs? see above. I took the whole case apart to paint it otherwise and riveted it back again. Do wish I sanded the original paint better as I had to touch up a bunch
I designed the hummingbird/sakura and butterfly then cut it out of the plastic and steel side panel with a dremel. The backing is a plexiglass that I rotary sanded with 220 grit for uniform look. LEDs are behind linked to the motherboard to sync the colors with fans etc.
Sorry for Late reply. There's probably an inch or so between the side fan and the graphics cards so plenty of clearance in the case.
Started the build when skylake was brand new so hard to get that 7700
That and input delay which is relatively high so not optimal for fps. It still is great and I love it for a WoW. Unfortunately the 21:9 ratio isn't really supported by overwatch which I play the most. It is officially supported but any one who tries knows it really isn't. Regardless I really look forward to getting that new monitor cause it looks amazing
Thanks. I tried drawing it out like others did too but didn't give me any sense of the best layout
Hard to say from what I read. Apparently very situational for all CPU/gpu combinations. I haven't noticed but then my games are all gpu heavy. I never planned to have the titans in the first place so wasn't going to remake the whole thing
I trimmed down some extraneous pics - it's causing my phone browser to crash though that's PCPP's issue. The G502 is for FPS, the G600 is for MMO
It's great! I haven't changed my mousepad in years. I also never played much fps until overwatch so needed more space for movement. It also only $13 so also a good deal
I'm not done uploading my pics yet!---------now I am --that took a while
Thanks! I never tested how many streams I get since I'm pretty much the only person who ends up streaming it. Over wifi easily get the full quality of bluray rips. Still depends more on my connection more than the cpu though
Sorry to break it to you but EKWB decided not to make the classified full cover water block. I verified with with of their reps on overclock forums after sadly getting the card myself and selling it after the news. I can't say if the FTW block will work though so worth looking into.
I discussed it in the description. I chose it that way with the huge fans on my cooler in the back fan. Thought it might make a better airflow that way and positive air pressure. I'm testing to see ultimately if it reduces dust build up. Temps seem fine either way
Actually if you notice the front fans that on stock are facing as intake I reversed so they are now exhaust - if you read the description I reversed all of them so intake through the rear exhaust in the front. I think one of the pics I accidentally had one of the cpu cooler fans the wrong way which I fixed otherwise they all point towards the front. Whether that improves airflow through the hdds or not I am not sure. I did it intentionally and have a dust filter added to the rear too. Thanks though!
oo thanks fixed
