This is my first full custom loop!
Having been an avid gamer for over half my life and now having been in college for a couple of years, I felt myself succumbing to an explicable urge to go for a full custom loop. After only having built my first system for myself less than two years ago, I would be satisfied no longer with aircooled systems and high temperatures.
A roadblock came in the form of few people doing waterblocks for Zotac GPUs- my first pick would have been EK, but they do not support them. I personally dislike Alphacool's designs and so I resorted to Ebay as a last resort where I was pleasantly surprised to find Bykski making them. A little skeptical at first, but once the block came there was no denying it- its high quality (not to mention excellent RGB lighting inside the block!).
The namesake comes from the goliathan undead frost wyrm, Sindragosa, from World of Warcraft, a game I am particularly fond of (main wallpaper of my PC is her!). Thought a light blue build would suit the icy realm of Northrend from which she ruled.
Despite being a soft-tubing build, I sought to make it at least resemble a hard line build with copious amounts of fittings and tactical flow reservoir placings to fill empty space. Through the forums I also made sure to keep the build practical, such as placing my drain port at the very bottom of the case to make fluid drains and changes much easier.
In the end, I am extremely happy with the way it turned out and I hope you enjoy! :)
An amazing case. Comes with superb watercooling support with a removable top bracket for easy installation of rads. Plenty of clearance for radiators and the motherboard, and the modular front area makes for great custom loops. The sound dampening material included does make a nice difference, filtering out the high-end sounds, and the chassis itself is of such a high quality. You can really tell by handling the case, side panels etc. Loads of cable management room too!
