Hey guys,

Today I shortened and sleeved the DDC pump and added one missing piece to the pump and res combo in order to be able to properly bring the loop back to the top of the res.

It's sort of like a Bitspower aquapipe but out of a piece of acrylic that EK offer for these reservoir tops.

Originally I wanted to use the Bitspower aquapipe as I have quite a few laying around however EK chose to have larger than G1/4" threads on the inside of these tops for some reason so the aquapipe didn't work. Luckily I found the acrylic tube that EK offer locally.

Once I received it, just had to shorten it to fit this res.









These are the threads on the inside of the res top.



Easily done












Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more to come over the weekend!

Cheers,

Alex

Here's the new EK stuff I received. Nickel plated mounting bracket and a new clear Supremacy EVO top, part of the upgrade kit. Also new RAM modules to replace the ones that were powder coated before.









Made some decal stickers for the RAM modules to go with the toxic theme





Pretty nice looking little combo!













Starting to get components back in the case. Still waiting on fittings, tubing and cables to arrive.

Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Front panel is done and here is how I applied it on, very simple with some double sided 3M tape.











For some reason these following pics I only have from my phone, not sure what happened with the ones from the camera







Thanks for checking it out and hope you guys like the finished front panel!

Cheers,

Alex

Looking good! The memory modules look sick, as does the front panel!

Hey guys,

Another quick update. The GPU is good to go and I also cut up these fan frames that will go around all the fans in the build to give them more colour.

You can see on the GPU the pink and purple caps have been covered with chrome vinyl.









This is the design I went for with the frames to just cover the edges of the fans.



Just need to get painted and filed down a little bit more, will be same silver colour as the side and front panel.



Thanks for checking it out.

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lack of updates on the build. I have been very busy moving houses over the last few weeks.

All done now but no internet at home yet, so posting update from work. Should have a lot more room and time to work on builds from now on and will hopefully wrap this build log up soon but I'm still waiting on custom cables to arrive.

Here are the finished grills/covers I made for the fans.











Stay tuned for more.

Cheers,

Alex
