What to say.... I've been searching for my staple build and I think this is it. I have been eye balling this Red Bull mini cooler at work for like a year now and have always looked at it and said it would make a great case. I had an opportunity to purchase it and do it so I ran with it, At the end I am really happy, all went well.
Side note: The entertainment center it is on was taken apart, painted and I mirror tinted the glass to match the red bull case
(1 of 4) This case from what I have read has only had 400 in production.... I don't believe it because I now have 4 in my possession and plan on making computers out of the other 3 as well.

I honestly didn't know what I was getting into. I bought this knowing what I can do with the inside of the fridge but didn't know what I had to work with in the back. I took it apart and I saw it all.... It's like this mini fridge was built to be modded to a case... So I did.
The insulation had to be removed but I couldn't remove it all because some of it is what hold the case together. I took out all the copper and metal tubing and drilled my 120mm fan holes and sprayed the back with plastidip
Water cooling I did a mix of hard and soft on this build. I used the XSPC pump on my old resv and the new resv I purchased is really perfect for this build. Over all very happy except for the only room for one 240mm rad. It runs warm and I'd like to overclock But don't want to have higher temps.
Final story of this build...... This was at first the easiest, most perfect build.... no issues, no speed bumps, nothing. Theeeeen
I cleaned my gpu block and it was my first time. I was afraid to crack the plexi so I under tightened the plexi on the block.....
Yeah, then when I dried it out and put it back together I didn't tighten one of the cpu fittings all the way and another freakin water disaster......
So third times the charm, all tight, water goes in, all is well. I let it run and do my bleeding for 24 hours and all looks good. Theeeeen
I fired up the pc and all my rgb leds were out but one..... even the Barrow cpu mirror led blew and I had to replace that too :( I contacted ModMyMods and they rushed out the strips and after that I knew.....Nothing will go wrong NOW!!!!........ and it didn't!!
Thanks for looking and keep on building!
Barrowch Boxfish Series Acrylic Box Reservoir with Digital OLED Display & D-RGB LED by Barrow I was originally going to just run a tube from the plug fitting to the gpu but I saw this and I knew it was made for this build
Barrow Infinity Mirror RGB LRC2.0 CPU water-block for Water-cooling Supreme Edition LTFHB-04N-V2 I know you can't see it but I really was trying to pay attention to detail. It was only $60 too, and it is so beautiful
Gigabyte - GA-Z270N-Gaming 5 Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard Finding a 7 gen motherboard is hard now these days and finding a mini itx is even harder. This rocks too. It controls the Phanteks Halos with the gigabyte rgb fusion and the board has WiFi and Bluetooth.
Noctua - NF-P12 redux I've always wanted to do a build with these but could never find a color scheme in my builds, then I started thinking for flash with this build so I decided to add the Halo frames and keep good noctua fans in this build**
RGB LED lights I used Barrow Self Adhesive LRC2.0 Version RGB LED Strips, on the gpu, the boxfish res, and 2 on top controlled Barrow LRC2.0 Controller with Remote from ModMyMods
I have had this cpu since it came out, I delided it and I'll keep it till it dies I think
Good little motherboard. It controls the Phanteks Halos with the gigabyte rgb fusion and the board has WiFi and Bluetooth.
Look good but having issues with xmp and the board
Perfect for my 4k projector that does 120hz in 1080p.
Don't judge.... I love my trackballs!! lol
Red Bull gives me wings
Drops picture a lot, issues with 4k at 60hz, but plays 50hz perfect
Extra attention to detail!!!
This is a great block. Had it on a 1060 and it also fits my 1070 ti. Highly recommend it
These are awesome for non led/rgb fans. I'm using the non digital ones. The software is so so but I've been doing my settings from my bios. Can't get the mobile app to work but still trying to figure that out
Too bad its hard to see... but it's gorgeous
This is beautiful!!
looks great... Extra attention to detail!!!
I will always use primochill.... ALWAYS!!
