Lavender

Lavender is a side project I've been working on for a few months. I knew I had to do a build in this case as soon as I laid my eyes on it. The build features a large thick radiator, a OLED panel CPU block from AquaComputer and a hidden pump and reservoar.

The case is slightly modded with custom feet. I had to remove the whole bottom part which makes the case even more square than original. I also made a few pass-through holes in the panels where I've routed the 14mm piping. This case was both fun and a challenge to build in due to it's size and radiator capacity. My first idea was to have two radiators but I ended up using only one very thick one in the roof spot.

Temperature wise it's stable on stock clocks. Water temperature doesn't rise above 33°C. CPU temperature is stable at around 55°C at load, and GPU around 50°C on 1000~RPM fan speeds. The OLED panel on the CPU block displays not only temperature and flow, but also date, time and is customizable to show more or less what ever the user wants to via the Aquasuite software.
