Probably not just you, in the first side on the res was just ziptied, so its on a lean. On the last the clips for the front fan tray aren't very fond of the weight of the front rad so teh top is leaning back slightly. Everything else should be straight... I think... ha!

Wow this is very nice mate. I think you may have just given me a final idea for my new build! The black and white looks sick, and I think with a window, it would look insane!

 

Good work though. Very, very nice stuff.


Is this the real life? Or is this just fantasy?

hey man very nice build :) but do you think it is worth it to replace the thermal compound for your cpu ? intel gives you 3 years warranty so why bother if something happens you can get a new one ?

Brilliant. This wouldn't be out of place behind the panel on a Star Trek federation cruiser :P


In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.

That looks amazing, I really love black and white builds. Some black/white sleeving should make it look even better :).

Hmm im not exactly sure what you mean. It's definitely worth replacing the standard thermal paste with a quality product in my opinion. Voltage and heat is what kills components and if you can drop temps by just changing out the Thermal Paste then you have improved half of the degradation factor, kinda... if that makes sense. At stock clocks it probably would have lasted fine, even on the hot side and yes I could have had it replaced but, I wanted to watercool and I wanted High Clocks. In no way would this have been possible without delidding on my chip.Its not a great chip, 1.344vcore is quite high for a 4.6ghz OC but i'm happy it got there. And it's now a voltage restriction as I don't want to go higher than 1.35vcore. Temps are supurb!

PS thanks to everyone for the awesome comments!

There's a few questions around mounting a 240mm rad up the top of an R4 and while it can fit I found with a z77 Sabertooth and Dominator Platinum RAM it was impossible. The will for it to 'must go in' required drastic measures!

The magnetic filter works exceptionally well for me...

Did the magnetic filter come with the case or did you get it elsewhere?

 

Also, white tubing or white liquid? It looks awesome!

Magnetic filter was a separate purchase.The tubing is white, you can see the clear fluid in the reservoir. I would love milky fluid with transparent tops on the GPU!
