    Hello Peter. Hope you have fun!


    So, I've decided to do the tubing sideways, as of two facts, it's not "mainstream" :thumb: and it looks cooler in my decision.

    Here's an ilustration of the loop. Don't jugde my super awesome drawing skills :lol:
    [​IMG]

    As for now the hardware will be,

    Asus Formula Z97
    Intel i7 4790K
    Nvidia (the real) GTX 980
    Ram (Dominator I think)
    SSD (not decided yet)


    As for watercooling it will be,

    So far,

    EK D5 pump
    EK D5 pump top
    EK 480PE radiator



    Before anything, the Asus Formula IV I had to paint it white I couldn't find any video of it, so for you guys that want to try it your self, here's how I did it. I did 3 layers, thin, remember to do many thin layers instead of 1 thick layer, let it dry for 15-20 minutes and apply a new layer. Watch it here on YouTube

    End result:

    Over my expectations, picture shot at night. So the ISO was a bit blurred.

    Received the EK 480PE radiator, looks really great!

    Installed the rad quick with some fans in, just to see how it'd look. And a few LED strips from Icemodz.

    Next up is to make some 3mm covers for the inside of the TJ07.

    To be continued!! :thumb:

    Here's an update :)

    I wanted to move the rad 5mm more towards the front grill. So did that, and I have now take the size for the covers and will cut them sometime in next week. And yes, it's night here, so couldn't take shinny pictures.

    Hey everyone! Haven't posted in a while, but finally found the time to make the covers for the build. Midplate and 2 covers for the 5"25 bays with 2 logos which turned out very nice :D

    Now I'm pretty much all set, need the watercooling to go furger :cooldude:
