MonoChromatico 3.0 - Modded Praxis Wet Bench [PICTURE HEAVY)

WARNING - PICTURE HEAVY!

So this is not a continuous build log but rather most of my build crammed in one, as I've been too busy to be posting all steps individually or even taking pictures of all of it. But I'd like to share my build and the process nevertheless.

As with my previous builds I have reused most of the components and only added a new case (the primochill praxis wet bench) and a few bits and bobs needed to make it into a dual loop system.

Originally I had my eyes on the Open bench table but I wanted the base tray to be angled to better show of the hardware which the Open Bench Table wouldn't do unless I did some significant mods to it (most likely out of my skill level anyways) and bought a SFF PSU. Instead I've used the PrimoChill Praxis Wet Bench and ghetto modded and additional 360 rad to the front of it. If anyone from praxis is watching... there is plenty of room for you guys to perhaps add it to the middle tray. But instead of boring you lets get on with the pictures.

First things first... draining the old system


Building the new case



I did a lot of test fitting an measuring.. tedious task but important ones.



Another "mod" I did to the case was bolting a 2.5 HDD cage from a Corsair Air 240 next to the PSU. Saved me the trouble of getting more custom sleeved cables and makes access to the drivers a lot easier. After the front rad has been mounted access to anything on the bottom and was not easy.



Also found a spot for my Aquareo5 LT fan controller. Turns out the somebody tailor made the distance betweenthe cutouts above where the PSU will sit perfect. Couple of washers and MB screws and voila!


Front rad Ghetto Mounted:



It is by no means pretty - but it is on solid and doesn't botch

More pics of fitting the pump/res unti and pass throughs













Repainted a rad black again after I painted it white for a previous build



Redid my radbox as I had extra fittings available this time
Before

After


Flushing the ZMT tubing from EK.. Forgot that the very first time I used it... required me to take everything apart to clean all blocks and tubes... won't forget that again...


Ready for final assembly



Bleeding


Final shots






Ended up being by far the most extensive modding I've been doing to a case.. well if I can call drilling holes modding...

Hope you guys enjoyed it.. I know I did

Do you have an original build log for that HEX GEAR R40? I love that case.

Course I do. This build log was not updated with the radbox addition I did to it.
