I don't think I've done this many water blocks on a motherboard before, and GPUs will be added as well of course :P

I'm excited to pipe it all up!

I decided not to use the monoblock cover that comes with this Bitspower kit and I'll connect everything separately. It will work better with the look I am going for.



























Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Here's some further progress of the way I mounted the reservoir/s and also some close-ups of the combo. You can also get a better look at the new back panel and the cut out in the mid section.

You can see the vinyl design for the fans and if you saw earlier in the build log, I showed the new CM RGB fans... well I ended up changing these to the red LED JetFlos to make things easier with the cabling; the RGB fans were adding one extra cable per fan and I would only want to have them on red for this build anyway so I didn't make sense to add the extra cables.



























Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned as I wrap up this build log.

Cheers,

Alex

Alright, motherboard is in, the reservoir is in, some of the tubes are in and the graphics cards have waterblocks on. I'm using reference 980s but hey it's not about the latest hardware with this build.

























Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Okay guys here we go, final photos!

Here is my Tempest, Mass Effect inspired build!

What I wanted out of this is a custom system that is very well put together and also engineered quite well, taking advantage of every single inch inside the Maker 5t chassis. That and a very nice and complex yet clean looking water cooling loop. The idea was that the build would look like a spaceship engine or a reactor of some sorts, something that would belong in the world of Mass Effect! I'm pretty happy with the finished result!

Huge thanks to the amazing companies that support me in achieving my dreams!















SPECS:

Case - Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t
CPU - Intel Core i7 6850K
MB - ASUS Rampage V Extreme
RAM - 4 x 4GB Kingston HyperX Predator 3000MHz DDR4
GPU - 2 x NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
SSD - 2 x 240GB HyperX Savage
HDD - 2 x 2TB Seagate Firecuda
PSU - Cooler Master V1000
Fans - 8 x Cooler Master JetFlo - red LED

Custom cables & lighting - CableMod

Custom water cooling - Bitspower























































































Hope you guys like it

Cheers,

Alex

Not usually a fan of busy looking buiilds, but this one I can look at for hours and see something new. Nice little touches in every corner and I'm starting to see the appeal of these master cases now. Kudos.
