Sorry if you have trouble understanding this (English isn't my first language)

Time Lapse build : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBbVIsTV-oE PLEASE DO NOT WATCH WITH FULL SCREEN TO AVOID HEADACHES!

Hi all, I'm back. Let me start off with my god, this case was extremely easy to work with. No hassle at all. I did some paint job to it because I didn't like the red shroud/screws. Why did I bought the red version of the case then, you may ask. Well its because I bought this case when it was on sale literally 1 month ago where it came with a "free" cooler (CORSAIR Hydro Series H60) bundle of total cost to be $120. Pretty worth to me.

I wanted to mount 2x 360 radiator in here but I couldn't find a way to do that, I tried looking everywhere and have not yet seen a mod that fit my wants. What I did instead was I went for a 240GTS X-Flow, still does the job so no complains there.

I also mounted an EK-Chrome back plate to the FTW3, I was suppose to mount it already in my previously build but I ruin the thermal pads due to not knowing which sides goes on the PCB.

Moving on to the fans, at first I did not like the looks of Corsair LL fans. It didn't satisfy me. The software is pretty bad, couldn't detect my lighting node pro. Although once it did, my lighting profile changed every 30 second or so. It didn't stay static (White) like I wanted to.

I did ran into some problems during my time building this. I didn't know a way to make the loop look clean and organize until the very last minute. Spending hours sketching my loop out in Sniping Tool and it all went to waste. One of the threading in the GPU waterblock terminal was damage, and I didn't realized this until I took apart my build from the Evolv. Everyday the coolant in the reservoir is decreasing and I was curious why, but now I know. The problem resolved by me contacting PPCS (Where I bought it) and they message EK to send me a new terminal.

Now running a pumpres horizontal mount was definitely scary to me, I've talked to some of the expert in the watercooling discord and they told me I would have a hard time bleeding at first, the pump will have a gap where the coolant wouldn't reach to and during the times where I was putting my 2nd loop together. I kept having thoughts if this would work out or not. Which it did and I'm pretty happy about it! :D

Yes, I put a roll of tape cover with “black strip” underneath the reservoir. I did this because without, my pump would be running a bit dry and the reservoir will sags a lot

Also, there was no clearance for me to cool the VRM because of the top radiator+fan configuration. I couldn’t fit a fitting or a 90 degree there.

+1 for $1500 do not touch sign on GPU. Also, nice build.

LOL

The picture was taken when the 1080ti were at crazy price.

Thank you !

AleksiSaarario 1 Build 6 points 14 days ago

That is a very beautiful build! (Especially with high quality photos!) I assume it performs just as well as it looks! Awesome!

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 days ago

It sure does! Thankyou!!

ThreeFingersDeep 3 points 15 days ago

looks beautiful

Thanks!

This is insane.... in the best way possible! Good job getting the hardline cooling together so neatly, I love a good custom loop just as much as the next guy.

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

Thankyouuuuu

MannyPCs 3 points 14 days ago

Superb! +1

Anyansayo 1 Build 3 points 10 days ago

Wow, this looks amazing. You said that English isn't your first language; so what country are you from?

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 2 points 10 days ago

I'm from Vietnam, thanks for the kind words too!

BetrayedPredator 2 points 14 days ago

So.

I’ll ask, why did you buy the red version of a case to get a free cooler if you were doing a custom loop :)

Outside of that, looks great and I used Miror 1.0 as inspiration for an eventual custom loop

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 days ago

Because the bundle was $120. It was such a good deal

Thankyou for kind words. It really makes me happy when people are inspired by my build :D

CooproxXo1 2 points 14 days ago

Another rainbow giant.. and it looks astonishing! Holy cow man, what a build. The loop looks fantastic, and great choice of parts (especially them light loops (: rgb boi)

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

Hell yeah :D

antonjetpack 2 points 14 days ago

smell feature possibly

nonoesimposible 2 points 10 days ago

Well, turns out my other comment was completely wrong lol

antonjetpack 1 point 10 days ago

lol i was about to say that...

nonoesimposible 0 points 14 days ago

Although it deserves it, I doubt this build will get a feature because Miror 1.0 already got a feature.

VexGTFO 2 points 14 days ago

This is an amazing PC, the only part I have from this list is the case, but the black version..... But dude this is a beast of a PC

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

Thanks! The case is a breeze to work with

VexGTFO 1 point 13 days ago

Yes it is, I just want to install a custom shroud to hide the cables

DaMysteryMan 1 Build 2 points 14 days ago

Looks like a feature. May I ask why you didn’t liquid cool the VRMs?

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 days ago

Oh I forgot to mention that. There was no clearance for it. The top radiator+fan configuration didn’t allow me to put a fitting there.

DaMysteryMan 1 Build 2 points 14 days ago

Hmm. Maybe you could try a short 90 degree adapter to make it fit.

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 2 points 14 days ago

It still won’t fit, trust me

DaMysteryMan 1 Build 2 points 10 days ago

Congrats!

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

Thanksssss

CodeCannibal64 2 points 14 days ago

Feature

geoffrey_lein 1 Build 2 points 14 days ago

All the angles, can we see a straight on shot of the side to get a good idea of what the full loop looks like?

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

Sorry about that, I just posted a picture with your desire.

westwandaguys 2 points 10 days ago

great photos and a great pc

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 10 days ago

OrbitalGamer 2 points 10 days ago

Man that looks sick!!!! RGB heaven!

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks lol

BetrayedPredator 2 points 9 days ago

The delayed feature, congrats!

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks :D

scarfxce 1 Build 2 points 9 days ago

I wouldn't even consider myself an RGB fanatic but that second picture is one of the sickest things ive seen on here in a while. Awesome picture and build

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks for the compliment :)

Jackison 2 points 9 days ago

Beautiful build...+1 I just installed my LL120s last night, couldn't be happier. Also the 570x is such a great case. Only thing I would do to make it the perfect case is have a cover for the PSU shroud which it looks like you have and have a much darker back panel so no one could see the mess I made back there lol. Where did you get that map mouse pad? I've seen on a few builds and I definitely want one.

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks for the compliment :)

Look up “World Map Large Gaming Mouse Pad Mousepad” on Aliexpress

OR

Go on ebay, search worldmap mousepad

Mine is 90cm x 40cm

Jackison 1 point 9 days ago

Thanks found it :)

SamuelParker 1 point 2 days ago

You can find it on amazon as well by just searching world map mouse pad.

Jackison 1 point 1 day ago

Yeah I found it; a lot cheaper than what I thought it would be.

customgtp 18 Builds 2 points 9 days ago

Looks as good as your first beautiful build... And you included all white pictures this time ;) (if you remember our conversation back then)

Why the change of case with all that work done to the evolv case? Looks great

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 9 days ago

I'm young and wanting to grow a channel where its mainly me building computers for myself/clients. Just to entertain, inspiring and showing people that a PC is not just a black box like one would see in Bestbuy/Target.

To shorten it out, PC aesthetic is art to me :)

customgtp 18 Builds 2 points 9 days ago

Well I can agree/relate with that... I'm 100% the same way.

This is stuff I normally say!! Keep doing what you do!

PC aesthetic is art to me :)

Ghostrunner713 2 points 9 days ago

Well done build, excellent photgraphy

SirHalpin 1 Build 2 points 8 days ago

Everything I want to say has been said already; well done friend. But I have to ask, as a fellow MAXIMUS X Formula owner....why did you choose to not employ the CrossChill built-in cooling channel? I haven't used it yet either, but I want to know your rationale, because everything about this build says thoughtful and meticulous, im sure you had a reason. +1

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

Thankyou for the kind words!

There was no clearance for it. The top radiator+fan configuration didn’t allow me to put a fitting there.

SirHalpin 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

In the wise words of the American poet 50 Cent, "If I do not fit, I'm gon' make it, don't stop, get it, get it".

mikepancake 1 point 14 days ago

The pc looks great and tons of pictures to show it off and hard line water cooling is really well done, But in my opinion I feel like the pump is tucked away in a weird place so maybe get a bigger case or find a new place for it.

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 14 days ago

Yeah, I wanted to do a horizontal mount and that is the only place where the pumpres can fit.

If I mount if to the front radiator, the GPU will interfere with the pumpres.

calebzhou138 1 point 8 days ago

Can I please have a look of the exterior? Wanting to look at the whole of this beauty. Keep the good work up!

iOhy submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 days ago

Thanks for the kind words.

What do you mean “exterior” ? I thought i posted a lot already.

calebzhou138 1 point 4 days ago

The outside of the case. Sorry for the confusion.
