Nebula

Got this Barrow Rhopilema Distroplate from a local studio in Xiamen, China. The product is based on the Barrow Mobula openair test bench. It is an limited edition product with a badge on the chassis itself. Mine was the 5th one produced.

Unfortunately I do not have any pics for the build progress. Enjoy the end result though.

Some comments on this openair distroplate.
The quality of the arylic plate was NICE. Yet, the building experience was terrible to say the least.
1. An inexperienced builder would have to use ALL Barrow products in order to make this work. The G4 threads were very strategically located for their own radiators and pump. And Barrow does NOT have the reputation of producing good quality radiators and pumps...... It is a harsh fact.

2. Maybe this was my own experience, but you have to purchase the pump and radiator bracket seperately... which are ESSENTIAL for the build.

3. The screws that came with the distroplate were useless... everything except the motherboard mounts had the wrong size. I had to go out and purchase my own screws... This build took me about 3 weeks to complete because of all the missing parts that were supposed to come with the plate itself.

4. Supposely it only supports one GPU, and you have to purchase the GPU bracket seperately otherwise this just doesn't work. I ended up doing a NVLINK for the two 2080s, and holding them together with the PETG tubes. It worked out nicely. The 2080s are held together very sturdy.

With this kind of price, retail @ 3000 RMB on Taobao, you should be getting ALL THE PARTS NECESSARY for the build, instead of purchasing everything.

However, I have to give credit where its due. The end result of this build was fantastic. The included RGB strip looks awesome. The cooling capacity is great. Im running my 8086K @ 5.2Ghz, the temp never exceeded 80C, with the two 2080 FE in the same cooling loop.
