Description

this is my third hard tube build but the first where I've used a parallel loop! i wanted to try something different and make the aesthetic as clean and minimal as possible. the crossflow radiator means I can avoid the usual long tubing run from the back to the front of the case that would distract from the CPU and RAM that are really the focal point of this build.

one mistake i made was that i purchased the Define S2 Vision Blackout case which has tinted glass windows-- i mistakenly thought that the blackout and RGB cases were exactly the same except for the fans, but i was wrong. i'm trying to see if just adding ambient light inside will make up for the tinted glass but right now i'm just running it with the side panel off. looks great!

for pictures i set the fans to a cool white because i couldn't get the gold to really come out in pictures. on my desk the lights are more of a yellow-orange that brings out the gold really well. i wish i could capture that effect better with my phone camera... maybe it's time to invest in a DSLR just so i can take computer pictures?

That's the cleanest loop I've ever seen. I wish you listed the individuals parts of your water cool loop.

I'd check out performance-pcs.com, they have a pretty wide selection. From memory I know they carry all of those brands and at least some of those parts.

This looks great. This is how you tastefully deploy lights in a build I think.

Job excellently done, +1.

Please let me know the temp/flow monitors you used. I am researching into this aspect. One of them looks like it might be a Barrow.

Very Nice! I love the whole look of it. The crossflow radiators do make for a cleaner loop. They actually become part of the loop. Love the white and gold. Good job.

How is the motherboard? Should I ditch ryzen just for the motherboard? IK, intel is better, but is it worth the switch? Also, congrats on the feature!
