Cable sleeving and tubing
So the only ugly cables come from Alphacool. All other brands already have black sleeved cables. But I guess this gives us the flexibility to sleeve like we want it.
I‘m really glad, I went with the small diameter tubing. A little bigger wouldn‘t fit. The tubes are in my opinion to glossy. Matt black would look much better, but anyway I‘m happy with the look of it.
Nooooooooooo! Big mistake. Let‘s see who can find it 😫
Made a drain port on the bottom of the case:
Yes, it runs Solitaire
After all I'm happy with the build an my mum too. I might would change the fans if would rebuild it again. The Bitspower Touchaqua NJORD Fans are really are beautiful, but loud as an airplane.
Case to measure size arrived
I already planed to get the ROG Crosshair VIII Impact Mini-DTX Mainboard. Was not sure if it fits. Also wanted to know about the length of the PSU. 15cm is fine. The Seasonic Focus GX-850 is 14cm which will give me some extra space for cables (yeah I know 850W is way to much, but all others were sold out).
Measuring for custom cables
Motherboard an PSU fits perfect. Now measuring for custom cables.
Water cooling parts arrived
All the water cooling parts arrived. I really think this gold/black theme looks stunnig. Parts used for the reservoir: - Z-CAPs Brass Version - Z-Tube 80 (ICE Black) - True Brass G1/4" Compression Fitting CC1 V2 For ID 1/4" OD 3/8" Tube - True Brass Stop Fitting V2 - True Brass AIR-Exhaust - True Brass Aqua-Pipe - True Brass Anti-Cyclone Adapter
Added the alphacool water block to the Strix 2080ti.
The Strix 2080ti is 1cm to long, if I wan't to do push/pull in the front. So I decided to switch the 2080ti with the TitanX. Sorry mum, but since you are not gaming, the TitanX will do more than you need
Painting the backplate of the TitanX from acetal nickel to black. Also painting some part to with gold. The screws on the TitanX I also painted gold.
