Comments:

 

Cable and hose management were a bit of a pain in this case. By now it is well known that the PC-O11 Dynamic has some GPU clearance issues for tall cards with waterblocks. The FTW Hybrids were no different.

 

At first, the hoses were pressing heavily against the glass and the panel ended up partially dettaching from the metal frame it's glued to. I removed the panel and the frame fell back into place, and since the glue was still sticky it held on pretty well. After a few hours worth of planning I was able to route the hoses in a way to minimize contact with the panel.

Such a good looking build shouldn't be legal. Nice subtle use of lighting with the LED fans. You crammed a lot in but it doesn't look overwhelming. Well done amigo.

As a former veteran I was also expecting something completely different from the name, clean build either way love the ring lighting from the fans subtle and not overwhelming

Thanks! The second I clicked to buy the fans I was worried they would overwhelm the build, but they turned out very nicely. The controller has a brightness button, which I used to lower it to the minimum.

First of all, thank you for your service. (Second, former veteran? I thought veterans were veterans for life)

 

The name came to me as I was writing the post, so I didn't really put any thought into it.

Lol thanks and yeah sorry it's been a long week dealing with work, 2 kids, and school work. I am a veteran ;)

 

BTW do those fans work with aura sync or do they have their own controller?

They have their own controller, and it's not a very good one. You can control brightness, a few effects and choose from about 12 static colors, but there's no way to sync them with anything else.

 

Personally, I was looking specifically for fans with RGB visible from both sides, (which are surpringly rare) because I wanted the option to use them either as intake or exhaust and still have everything match in the build. These fit what I want to do perfectly since they have a ring on each side. The cherry on top was the price, which is a third of the top brands.

Unfortunate. I been looking for some that can pair with aura sync without costing a fortune as I already spent way too much as is lol just purchased the threadripper 1950x, asus rog zenith extreme, 32gb of g.skill tridentz rgb, and asus rog strix gtx 1080 and a few other tidbits. Sent thermaltake and corsair some emails asking for a sponsor waiting to see what they say lol

Damn, looks pretty sweet!

 

The only thing I would probably change is the led color profile on the RAM, as it doesn't fit as well with the rest of the build imo. (maybe it's just the photo?)

I left the RAM with the rainbow setting that comes out of the box, so the colors keep cycling through the whole color spectrum. The photos don't do it justice. In person it looks a lot nicer.

 

Edit: added a video.

Yea, I figured as much. I have all LED's in my build set to red and they look pretty much indistinguishable in person, but when I take a photo of it the red spectrum is all over the place.

Cable and hose management were a bit of a pain in this case. By now it is well known that the PC-O11 Dynamic has some GPU clearance issues for tall cards with waterblocks. The FTW Hybrids were no different.

 

At first, the hoses were pressing heavily against the glass and the panel ended up partially dettaching from the metal frame it's glued to. I removed the panel and the frame fell back into place, and since the glue was still sticky it held on pretty well. After a few hours worth of planning I was able to route the hoses in a way to minimize contact with the panel.

Can you tell me how the gpu radiator works?

To me it looks like a normal all in one cooler, so I am really curious!

 

Elegant build!
