    Thanks to Alessandro from Ybris Cooling, Peter from EKWB, Luca from Ocaholic and Mike from Phanteks for the help!

    Happy New Year!

    After my first project, pics here, i'm starting the new year with a new worklog! Project Prime is based on a Phanteks case, the Enthoo Primo White Edition, it will be filled with 1x 360x60 + 1x 420x60 radiators, E22 hard tubing, and a full water cooled loop. The main colours are white, red and black.

    Hardware

    i7 4790K
    Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Limited Edition
    Kingston HyperX Fury White 16gb
    Asus GTX770 DC2
    Kingston HyperX 3K White Limited Edition RAID0
    WD Caviar Green 2 x 2TB
    Seasonic SS-860XP2 Platinum + Icemodz.com Handmade Extensions
    Asus Xonar Essence STX

    Liquid Cooling Loop

    Radiators: Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 420mm - White Special Edition + Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 360mm
    Pump: Laing DDC T1 plus + EK X-Top V2 + EK-DDC Heatsink Housing
    Reservoir: EK-Multioption RES X3 - 250 White Edition
    WB CPU: EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ Plexy - Nickel
    WB GPU: EK-FC680 DCII Nickel
    Fittings: Bitspower
    Tube: Nanoxia CF1 PETG Hard Tube 12/10 mm
    Coolants: Nanoxia CF1 UV Red
    Accessories: 2x Aquacomputer Temperature Sensor Inline G1/4 + Bitspower Flow Sensor + Bitspower mini-valve
    Rheobus: Lamptron CW611


    The case just arrived from Germany

    [​IMG]


    First, I've mounted PSU , HDD and SSD and I've started ordering the back, then I've moved to the front, mounting the motherboard , the supports for the cylindrical tank , the DVD Writer and the Rheobus. I've added 2 strips of bioadhesive to the reservoir supports to improve the grip.

    [​IMG]


    I've added two LEDs strips, connected to a single 12v case molex which allows me to on/off the lights of the 140mm frontal fans and LEDs.


    [​IMG]


    The case has a flap cover for the front bay 5.25, this makes it difficult to install a Rheobus which have knobs , but I managed to place my trusted Lamptron FC6 without problems. The space available in flip closed is about 3mm .

    [​IMG]


    I've started painting the fans and radiators in white for match the build.

    I spent the weekend assembling the hardware, hyperx 3k raid 0 works great, But looks like 1 stick of ram is faulty, the pc won't boot with all 4 sticks mounted, i tried each one alone and i had fake boot with 1 stick, i will try to Contact hyperx for change this faulty stick. I also delidded the 4790k using the vice method and i have applied the Coollaboratory liquid pro on the die. Here some random pics

    Love the fans, looks great. :thumb:
    Will you be doing anything to the motherboard, such as decals, vinyl, or spray painting? Or do you plan on leaving as is?
