Very nice!

Dual Titans will be evil ... I love the Phantek case too.

I think I used to have that same open frame bench, except I put a detachable "roof" to keep dust off the system.

This build is hurting my brain!! Dual Titan Xs plus the blocks alone... $$$$ ouch! You might have said this elsewhere akira749 but are these builds you do for yourself or are you contracted to build these for other people with deep... DEEP... pockets?

Brilliant work! Even the sleeving choices. Looking forward to the final result!

Hi guys!

It's been a while since I updated but here I am!

The build is in it's final stretch since as I write this, the leak test is almost done. Tomorrow I fill up the green coolant and it's done!

So!!!

First thing that needed to be done was the dreaded sleeving! After some frustrating moments, here's what it looked like once done.




Earlier in the build, I told you that I was waiting on something to fix the issue I had with the 5.25 bay covers in front of the top fans on the front 360 radiator. With the help of a good friend, I had the possibility to get some Enthoo Primo bay covers from a Phanteks rep who was kind enough to sent some for me!!! I knew from the beginning that they wouldn't snap in place correctly on the Enthoo Luxe but with again a bit of Dremel everything did fit in place perfectly!!!

Now i'm happy with the front overall look!!






Next step was the block installation on the RAM sticks.








Then it was the turn of the motherboard to have it's blocks installed.






Then it was loop time!

With the amount of blocks on this build, it was kinda hard to figure a decent loop. So this is my 3rd loop design if I remember correctly.










The pictures above were taken during the leak test phase. The leak phase didn't started easily with a leak in one of the most tight place (of course!!!) but after maybe an hour I was able to restart the leak test and since then everything is fine.

Here's one last picture of the front in the dark.




Tomorrow I will take the final shots so you can expect some sweet final shots on Sunday!

Wow. Nicely done. The loop looks good...I have never done water because of cost, but you make me want to. GPUs in parallel? Out of curiosity did you try series as well? I am always intrigued by the results people get with temps on different configurations.

Thanks! I always did parallel for personnal looking taste but i've read that the temp difference with the less restrictive blocks that we have on the market now is not very big. I might try serial someday just for curiosity purpose.

Thanks! Not yet for the 4K monitor but it's the next item on the list.
