Corsair Air 240 Hardpipe Watercooled

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all, thought I'd share my finished PC with you all.  This is my first ever build using acrylic tubing and I thought, "why not try acrylic tubing in a tiny case?"  I've always loved the Corsair Air 240 and so the challenged began, how to fit all this hardware in a small case with hardpipe water cooling...

 

Specs

 

Case: Corsair Air 240

PSU: Corsair AX860i

Motherboard: Asus Gene VII

CPU: Intel Core i7 4790k

Ram: 32Gb Corsair Platinum Dominator

Graphics Card: MSI GTX970

System Disk: 2x Samsung 850 Pro 512Gb (Raid 0)

Storage: 4Tb Western Digital Black

CPU Waterblocks: EK-Supremacy EVO

Radiator: EK-CoolStream XE 240

Reservoir: XSPC Photon 170

Pump: EK-DCP 2.2 X-RES

Tubing: Monsoon Hardline Acrylic Tube

Fittings: Monsoon Chain Gun Hardline

Fluid: Mayhems Pastel - Ice White Coolant

 

I sadly lost all the images from my SLR Camera as I dropped the SD card in a glass of soft drink :(

 

However I was able to upload some of the images from my phone so sorry about the lack of quality of the actual build process :(

 

Anyway hope you like it guys, let me know what you think as I'm tempted to start my next hardpipe build... just don't know what colour theme I should use...I'm thinking either green or purple, yep, purple :P

Looks real nice, although that glowing red ROG logo looks kind of out of place.

Very nice looking. Very clean looking tubing even though it is inside of a cube m-atx case


If I have solved your issue, please mark the thread as solved! Thanks!

If you can somehow convert that ROG LED to white (Might just be a sticker over) it will be damn near perfect.

Already looking at building another one (but learning from this build), but looking to use the Asus Gene VIII as its mostly black with red and grey accents which I will spray paint to the theme.  Just looking for my next tiny case and what colour theme to use :P  Oh and I may throw a 6700k and 980 Ti in there for giggles :D
