Frostb1te - Modified Dual Loop Fractal Define S2

This build main purpose was to push the case to its absolute limits. There have been many builds done in this case with distribution blocks and water cooling but none that have a separate CPU and GPU loop. So It started off with taking lots of measurements to determine the clearances that the case can fit without modifying the case itself. Then the process began creating test samples out of chipboard to ensure the right hole placements and overall distribution block dimension.

The main color theme that was chosen was Blue and White. This was used throughout the build with the motherboard being partially painted pearl white, fan shrouds painted pearl white, and radiators were painted metallic blue. The CPU loop is filled with custom mixed Mayhems Blue coolant and the GPU loop has Mayhems White coolant. Many parts of the build had custom paint. The TWO 360mm radiators were painted with a metallic sapphire blue paint, the 6 fans were painted with a pearl white, there is also a custom rear cover plate painted in pearl white to cover the rear fan holes. The custom from panel was cut using a CNC with the fractal design snowflake design with some addressable RGB strip behind it for backlighting. The snowflakes were also implemented inside on the custom made GPU backplate with a two-tone paint job.
