[Build Log] Ice White by Ymac

Fantastic job with the cable management. I have a white R4 and these cases are just fantastic for cable management.

thank you everyone!

I might borrow a scythe mugan 2 from a friend to temporarily replace the stock cooler, until I'll have all of the watercooling parts.

btw, MSI's software is so awesome!

does somebody know what is the best way of "making a window" on the R4? I want something different, like big square maybe smoked window.

what is the best way to "cut" the side panel? (jigsaw, laser, water jet, router) will it be better to just replace the whole side panel to a pice of acrylic?

The AX850 made such a big difference, looking awesome!

 

Edit: Didn't see the rest of the photos, sorry about your Eco cooler, but the water cooling with make it look so much better!

When you will be upgrading, get a UD4/UD3 pure black board and NZXT Hue so you can change your whole system when you want to whatever colour you want.

well, CoolIt want 20$ for the backplate (it's technically free, I need to pay just for shipping) to ship it IN CANADA.

should I pay for it, or stay with the stock cooler for a while but have a non-operational cooler?

and my Asrock Fatal1ty is dead :( went today to RMA it, should be replaced in a week.

and I am ordering now the other majority of parts, the radiator - RX360 (still not sure, I am  debating whether buy it or the UT60) fittings (bitspower, lots of bitspower) and pump + pump top + reservoir.

tubing will be Primochill Advanced LRT clear, 3/8" 5/8" with Mayhems Pastel Ice white in it.

Stay tuned, parts should arrive on June (because I am getting it from Canada, and my cousin is coming in June)

 

 

When you will be upgrading, get a UD4/UD3 pure black board and NZXT Hue so you can change your whole system when you want to whatever colour you want.

I am not switching boards again, staying with the Mpower.

Well, small update:

got the tubing:

lPi6S62.jpg?1

and the memory, but when I opened it :o  green PCB!

no no no no! NEVER!

They will be replaced with Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer, they look so cool! and will match the Mpower with black + gray with blue LEDs :D

also, I am thinking of removing the covers off the Mpower's heatsinks which will make it look super stealthy.

and I am not sure of the coolant color, Pastel Ice White or Pastel Blueberry, both from Mayhems.

I am going to use an MCP655 (maybe PWM) with the Bitspower mod, but I can not decide whether going for black sparkle + acrylic top or matte black + black POM top. HELP ME!

The R4 is amazing, very silent and roomy.

So, you're not going with the Viper black. It's a pity. But this sure looks good too! :)

I think only the "high end" modules are getting black PCB, because PATRIOT bin the modules, and 1600MHz @ CL9 is very "achievable" with almost any module, so some "value" modules finding they're way to the viper line.

not sure, just a theory.

because I have seen Black-PCB-ed Vipers..
