Project 2k14 Wet Arc Mini

Hi Bit-Tech

My Prodigy was fun but limited on the expansions department. BF4 needs a bit more grunt at 1440p as a single 680 can deliver...

Hardware :
Case : Fractal Design Arc Mini R2 with Window
Mainboard : Asus Maximus Vi Gene
CPU : 4770k :
RAM : Kingston Beasts 2x8gb 2400 cl11 :
GPU : Gtx680 2gb used in the Prodigy + a second one.
Sorage : Crucial M4 128 , Crucial M4 512, WD Scorpio Blue 1Tb
PSU : Corsair AX860

Cooling :
CPU Cooler : HK3.0 Black Nickel with Upgradekit from S1366 to S1150
Fittings : Bitspower 10mm Barbs Black
Tubing : Clear and Black Tygon 15.9/9.5mm
GPU Cooler : Watercool Black Nickel Hole Edition + Backplate for the first 680. If SLI performes well, the same package for the second card
Pump : PWM Laing DCC
Controller : Aquaero 5 XT with Black Faceplate
Fans : Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition
Reservoir : Aquacomputer Bayres
Radiators : Magicool 360 + 240, each 45mm thick

Color Theme :
This was the hardest part of planing all this.
I was really torn apart, and went backward and forward between the hardware options, but as you might guessed till now, itīs gonna be the old and bored red-black theme with a twist of white.

To cut a story short, thatīs what happened in the last weeks...

Got the case and imediatly took it apart.
Mainboardtray and 360 got a foil wrap job



240 Rad got some foil treatment, too
ODD Drive bay lost most of itīs length, itīs now only 40mm long
PSU went in



Aquaero got itīs black frontpanel,
Bayres will get a black foil jobby, maybe the Aquaero too.
Could do that in gray(ish) fake carbonfiber, but Iīd guess that would not look soo good



MDPC-X color X is an awsome color match to Asus R.O.G. red



Made some sata Power cables for the SSDīs on the rear of the Mainboardtray. 3h of work, and no where near perfect. Damn







Redid the some Wires of the 8Pin and 24Pin in matching color of the sleeve



Really crappy picture of the Cpu block on the Mainboard. Will look good, Iīd say. Just imagine the mirrorīd Heatkiller in the Backplate of the GPU...


Pics of the sleeved 8Pin Cpu plug, thatīs what happened last weekend.





This week the SP120 should arrive, so I can finish the bracket for the front radiator.
Once the second 680 arrives, I can remove all the WC stuff from the Prodigy and move on working on the Mini.

Thx 4 Listening
Mike

took some pictures after testfitting the new rams and I could not resist to just put the cpu block into the case







The tubing in the Picture is/was tygon, will be replaced with new one, but for testing bends in the loop the scappy one does itīs job

Aqualis is in and works.
Dunno if I can fit a propper Fillport in the top of the case or if I keep the fillport Flyin

Allmighty HK3.0 Still a stunning beautiful CPU block


Front with Radiatorbracket, the 2 screws on the right side hold the mini Himuro

Lots of wires are still to be made, hopefully I get my 6+2Plugs this week so I can crimp the missing GPU Power

Nice build, unless I missed something however, what did you actually mod though?

Not much.
Cut the ODD Cage to fit the 360 and the Aquaero.
Radiator bracket for the front
Custom wiring for all HDD/SSDs plus a bit of Sleeving, more to come.
Aqualis bracket
Thatīs it, not everyone can go full P0pe or mbk

Iīm allready pleased when I can fit a propper WC loop in a small case, which does look a nice and is not a mix of 8 colors.
