Description

My old PC broke down so had to build something new, it's technically my second build, although my previous one didn't even have an SSD.

I will be using it for programming, gaming, and a little bit of video editing / 3D rendering. The cables are all custom made in my kitchen.

Thanks to all the people at linustechtips forum for helping me out with all my questions, there was a lot of first timers for me in this build.

VERY NICE! Love the cables! How do you drain it? What process did you go through to flush your radiators? Temps? Love it. +1

There is a drain valve in the 'in' slot in the pump/rad combo. I connect a tube to the valve, give some air to the back of the loop and hold the case at a 45 degree angle. After some blowing and shaking the only fluid left is in the bottom radiator, which I can either flip the case upside down for or unscrew the radiator. Not the best, but best I could do with this case.

For flushing I just poured some distilled water inside and shaken it, EK says not to use vinegar with their fluids. Then I was running the loop on just distilled water for a few hours and drained it to fix some problems, I guess that helped too.

I'm still working on the CPU temps, I have some minor issues with them at the moment (assuming it's the delid), so not really ready to share the numbers. The GPU temps though... Amazing! Not going over 41C in FurMark with nothing audible, very similar temps in games too.

Thanks!

It's a mix of EK-CryoFuel Acid Green and Lime Yellow. The green is a bit darker than I expected so I didn't get a perfect match, but it's still fine I think :D

Does it have any uv in the coolant?

Yes, EK claims it does.

I didn't put my leds in yet, so can't tell you how much.

I have the xspc uv green and when I put the uv lights it looks so good. I'm mean really good.

That CPU is a solid choice for programming. Nicely done. You should look into overclocking if you haven't already, will give even more performance while compiling (as it is quite a lightly threaded task)

Thanks! That's exactly what I got this CPU for, it's currently running at 5.0 GHz.

Plus one for the 'little' in the name. from what i've read and watched, that case is about as 'little' as my pup thinks he is. he's a german shepherd springer spaniel and thinks he is a lap dog. again, +1

Awesome build. How did you turn off your status and reset button mobo leds?

Clean build !!! Love the green color scheme with the custom cables. How has the ASRock mother board performed? I was thinking about buying one for my new build.

It's a great board, never had any problems with it.

The only small issue is that you can't turn off the red LEDs on the buttons and under the M.2 slot so if you're going for a themed build you'll probably need to cover them with some electrical tape.
