Sweet looking case so far; too bad the RAM modules didn't come out more glossy/chrome-like.

Hey guys,

Here's a quick look at some of the components going in the build. The CPU, fans and PSU.

Custom decals for the PSU and fans incoming!











Here you can see the difference between the 15mm slim Gelid fans and 25mm normal ones.

















Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here's a quick look at all the waterblocks!

Gave them all a quick polish, no sanding was done, just applied the solution and used the Dremel with the polishing cloth attachment to polish around everywhere.

Quick, easy and they came out pretty good!





The frame of the CPU block was also done in the same powder coat chrome as the RAM modules however this also won't stay. I'm getting along with new RAM modules the nickel plated frame that EK offer. Should look pretty good with that on.











Also giving this poor SSD a make over, was pulled from my Fractal Desing ARC Mini R2 build before becoming the Green Molecule. Not exactly sure what happened to the label on it.



Everything looks good on the inside and still works well.



That's it for now. I'm working on this build everyday after work pretty much now so updates should be rolling in regularly.

Cheers,

Alex

Time for another update! Slowly getting everything in the case to figure out the loop layout and if I need any more fittings

Painted the thumbscrews for the EK Supremacy black, think it goes better with the motherboard like this.



The little Pentium is in



I might change the CPU block layout, depending on the way I want to go with the loop.













Also here it the GPU, this was in the Green Molecule build in SLI before the tear down.







Will cut some vinyl to cover those pink and purple capacitors.



Thanks for checking it out!


Cheers,

Alex

Things are getting a little bit tight in the case!

I figured out the loop for the build, I might need some more fittings to make it work and keep it nice and clean. Need to get the cables in first and see, they're currently on the way from Icemodz

















I really like the way this build is taking shape, let me know what you guys think.

Cheers,

Alex

Looking pretty slick as it's coming together. Can't way to see more of the "chrome" components.

Wondering...would it look better if you "chromed" the (currently) black ends of the reservoirs?

Thanks, I will be able to show the rest of the case in the next following days with side panels and then also the front panel and rear case feel will be painted to match the rest of the blue on the case.

Not gonna be painting anything else inside the case, will use vinyl to add chrome effects and also thinking of doing chromed copper pipes
