Antares

With the new generation of hardware finally here, it is time to build a new computer for myself. This will be my first venture into a custom water loop, although coming from a technical background where bending conduit regularly was part of my work, I think I will do just fine with hard tube.

For this project, I am trying to stick to a black and red theme, to complement the name of this build. Antares, a Red Supergiant in the Scorpius Constellation. One deviation from the colour scheme however, will be a set of Noctua NF-A15x25 fans, to combat this I have designed fan shrouds to sit atop the radiator and cover the fans, with a gasket to raise the fans from the radiator. The shrouds and gaskets will be printed by Shapeways, hand finished and painted by myself.
