Build Log - Temporal Snow! (Complete 30/11/16)

ok so I got everything sorted today, the block arrived yesterday, but I had serious Man Flu and slept only 40 mins before my night shift!

 

So today I could finish it up, especially as the back plate was finalised!

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Got the fans finished and tidied up the PCI brackets around the rear of the lower radiator and got the LCD mounted in the surround.

Personally I'd keep the casing of the fans black as they blend in too much with the case now. The build looks amazing so for so I guess you know what you're doing :D
How's the performance of the fans? Did you do a good job and they are just as they were or are they louder and don't spin as nicely?

I haven't flashed the fans up yet as the loop is still partially drained whilst I wait for the gpu block to arrive. The finish on them isn't as great as I usually do, however that's mainly because I didn't want to keep adding coats and potentially cause symptoms you identified.

 

The block is here arriving tomorrow, hopefully along with the last thing I'm waiting on, so I will find out then

that fat radiator at the bottom is messing up this build lol :P how was the PCI riser running? maybe you can find a longer one and have it on the other side of the inlet/outlet of the block?

well i cant see a way to fit it in there that wont ruin the look of it at all, the only thing i can think off is a longer riser cable or a thinner rad but i dont think a thinner rad is going to happen because of temps mainly
