My Dark Base Pro 900 build!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my attempt at a proper build! I've saved long and hard and finally I've been able to afford my dream case and a new PSU and res/pump combo!

 

Full specs are:

Intel core i5 4690k overclocked to 4.4ghz

Corsair Vengeance ddr3 16GB

Samsung 850 SSD

EVGA GTX 970

EVGA 750 P2 power supply

Asus Z97-Pro mobo

CableMod orange cable kit

2 GB Seagate HDD 

XSPC Raystorm waterblock

XSPC 3/8 5/8 UV red/orange tubing

XSPC D5 170 reservoir and pump combo

 

The case is great to work with, it's so modular! Everything can be moved and shifted around, and I had to move the motherboard tray right to the bottom so I could fit my stupid cross flow radiator!

 

What are everyone's thoughts/criticisms? 

 

Cheers

Ben

Just aesthetically, it looked better, I like the round Asus badge on the motherboard, and if I put the gpu in the upper slot it covers it up. With the amount of airflow this case has, it definitely won't be affecting temps :P

Nice work. As you have the DarkBase Pro 900 and I am considering it for my next project, can you tell me if the orange strip around the edge is in any way removable? If it is I'll probably get a black or silver version (to keep the rubber grommets more neutral) and paint the strip a color that better fits my build (it won't be blue or orange as I already have 2 w/c rigs in those colors).

Hi, not from what I can see mate, no. But I don't thinknow it would be too arduous to take the top and front panels off then mask it all :) It looks as though it's probably glued in tbh

Nice rig. Never been a fan of soft tubing, I think hard tubing would make this rig 10x better, but its still a good looking rig! Goodjob!
