I knew, eventually, someone would make this case look good. Well done.

No, just the front panel. Side panels are stock. Front panel is just 1/16" acrylic.

Cool! Can you explain how you made the vault boy panel? What does the panel look like with the lights off?

Nice. What are your temps?

What are your temperatures like?

Ya, it's plenty. Even without the CPU overclock, the limiting factor is GPU power.

Do you have before/after temps for the front panel mod?

Pretty sure there's still a bunch on ebay.

The fluid temperature stays at a pretty stable ~25C so the order of the modules isn't actually that important. It moves fast enough that the fluid never really absorbs enough heat to effect the CPU. The CPU temperature problem turned out to be a motherboard issue which has since been RMA'd.

It's worked without issue for as long as I've had it (used the same card in the last build too). The router is 3 bedroom-sized rooms down the hall from me and it gets 4/5 bars all day. Highly recommend.

Now that some time has passed, I feel comfortable admitting that this is his build. I took credit because I have thumbs and he doesn't.

Works better than any USB adapter I've tried.

Sure. If your only concern is whether or not the pump will push fluid through the loop, almost any pump will do. If you're concerned about noise at all, I'd consider splitting the loop.

It will. Stick with any modern, well-reviewed pump and you'll be fine.

1 pump will be plenty for that.

Monitor refresh rate which, it turns out, is closer to 165Hz most of the time.

They reset but I changed them all back. Haven't pushed it since. Still waiting on ASUS.

Correct. Temps were fine until I updated the BIOS for whatever reason. Pre-update: CPU - 22C/62C, GPU - 25C/45C After the update, though, my CPU hits 85 under load and temperature fluctuations during normal tasks are pretty ridiculous. Still working with ASUS to fix this.

1 weekend starting Friday night. I had to do that twice though since I started building before I got all the parts.

Get a case you'll love. You're the one that has to look at it for the next decade or so.

Everything you need to know is available online. Mainly youtube, reddit, and overclock.net. Read everything you can find until you're comfortable enough with the process to know what you want. I made a rough estimate on tube length, but 1 pack of Primochill LRT ended up being plenty.

  1. The rear fan is exhaust. This set up keeps cool, outside air flowing over the rads and maintains positive pressure inside the case.

  2. Nah. I like the extra cooling headroom. One just wouldn't be enough.

And, fortunately, the SATA connectors came that way. Got lucky there.

The blocks and pump were through EK but everything else was through performance-pcs.com. Your build looks good though I don't see any cooling parts listed there. The SMA8 is a very popular case so I'd find as many builds in that case as you can to draw inspiration from. Also, I don't know that $315 for a sole 400Gb of storage is the best move. Especially when your mobo comes with an M.2 and you're getting a mountain of PCIE lanes by using X-99 (though I don't really see where you're using them).

The rear is fan is exhaust. Unless I'm benchmarking, its silent.

That case is hideous. And not a cube.

I moved the power bottom to one of the back 1" holes using a vandal switch and 3/4"-1" grommet. I also drilled the mounting holes for the pump. Everything else is stock or removable (like the drive fan).

No. This case is actually bigger/roomier than I had anticipated. I love the cube form factor and if they made a more compact one with all the same features as this case, I would have chosen that. This one ended up being about a cubic foot.

The short answer is not but in order to re-seat the monoblock or handle the mobo at all, you need to take THE WHOLE THING apart which can be a pain. But overall, great case, smooth build.

Saved the power supply from the last build. Haven't had any issues with it throughout its lifetime.

What do you want to know? I'm bad a free-writing a description. I just liked the name. I also didn't really have the technical know-how to set up an aesthetically pleasing build.

Mine came pre-wired from performance-pcs but there are wiring guides online. Find the diagram that fits the switch you bought and hook it up. No need for any esoteric electrical knowledge.
