I’m building my “new” pc. It’s going to be my first custom loop and first hard line build. My current system has an old CoolIT Vantage AIO. As far as case mod, i haven’t done any case mods since early 2000’s where i cut a window into a Micro ATX case I had for a home server and then engraved the Tux Penguin into some acrylic for the window. Looking forward to customising this new pc and making it mine. The specs for the box: i5 4670K, ASRock Z87 Extreme3, 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1333, EVGA 1060 GTX SC, Cooler Master Masterbox Lite 5 RGB, Corsair HD120 RGB fans (sold the stock RGB fans), Thermaltake CL360 Rad, Thermaltake W1 CPU Block, Thermaltake PR15-D5 Pump/Res Combo, Barrow fittings, Barrow 16mm PETG. I also ordered an EVGA 650W Gold Modular PSU and 1TB Samsung EVO 860 SSD. I know it’s not the latest and greatest specs but it will be an upgrade from my Ivy Bridge and being a K cpu and a Z87 mobo I’ll be able to overclock it unlike my current system. Planning my loop... For the drain, the radiator is the lowest point in the loop. There is a plug in the bottom of the rad but only maybe 10-15mm between it and the bottom of the case. So I’m going to drill a hole in the bottom of the case and add an 30mm extension so the port is bellow the bottom of the case. I’ve ordered a few Barrow right angle fittings to give me some more options and slightly less complex bends. I haven’t planned a theme yet, not sure if i just go for a colours theme or if i go something a bit more extreme, i guess my main reservation on that is that a game theme, etc tends to date a lot quicker than just a simple colour scheme. I did a quick test on the fan lights and I’ve found I’m going to need some internal lighting, the lights on the fans don’t penetrate through a 64mm thick rad haha Also planning on doing custom sleeved cables, i’ll have to do some research into this as i haven’t done this before. Any advice or suggestions?
