To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X @ 4.4GhzRAM: G.SKILL Flare X 3200Mhz CL 14 (B-die)GPU: NVIDIA Palit RTX 2080ti ProGaming OC @ 2100MhzMOBO: ASUS B450-I Strix GamingM2: Samsung 960 EVO 500Gb x2SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 256GbPSU: CORSAIR SF600Cables: CableMods Sleeved Black/White ProWaterblock CPU: Thermaltake Pacific W5Waterblock GPU: EK Vector RTX TI CopperRadiators: EK Coolstream PE 240mm x2Reservoar: Phobya Nickel 150mmFittings: Bykskis 12mmLED: ASUS Terminal and LED-stripsMonitor: Acer Predator X34P

Mods:
Remodded the VESA mounting on the stand and monitor.Sawed, polished, brushed and bent a 5mm Aluminum plateBuilt a VESA mountGrinded down the paint to free the metal on the stand and polished and brushed it. Repainted the bezel, backplate and monitor stand. Added an acrylic base to the PSURepainted the RAM-heatsinks to white. Grinded down the VRM Heatsink on the motherboard to free the metal and brushed itFastened the GPU so that it could use the entire 5mm thick aluminium backplate as a cooling backplate.

This is a custom-loop-all-in-one gaming PC. I got the idea when my wife wanted an iMac. Ofc she didn't get one... But I built this! It's my first scratch-build and my first custom-loop! Second mod ever!The clearance behind the radiators to the screen is 70mm, so the airflow is good. Feel free to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter as I post updates on coming projects there.

I really appreciated your work. :clap:

- Space saving
- Cable management
- RGB light
- Power button
- Choice of materials aluminum plate, metal tubing

I remove 2 points for the following reasons :

- Hot air propelled towards the screen by the fans.
- Absence of drain tap from below
- Fixing the power supply

Thank you for that awesome feedback! :)

Yeah, the fans do blow hot air towards the monitor. But there's a 70mm gap between the radiators and the monitor. Not even under load is the air coming through that hot really. (I could switch the fans to a pull configuration, but the little positive effect it has wasn't worth it show the prettier Corsair logo on the fans. :D Hahaha Looks = performance, no? ;) )

Personally, I will have made the changes in red, see photo.
The little extra would be to see the temperature and the flow in real time from your screen or through the smartphone / software.
I'd prefer the use of clear tubing and a Thermochromic fluid to see real time flow and temps.

Question the monitor doesn't tilt down? or the plate is supported directly thru the stand?

Thermaltake Pacific TF2 Temperature and Flow Indicator
I can see the flow in real-time with software directly from the pump who has a built in temp-sensor for the water. But yeah, smartphone assistance would be nice. :) The flowindicator I have is just because I thought it looked good, never see it really. (Well, atm I do since I'm reviewing a monitor. So my build is standing with the back towards me atm)

I'd prefer the use of clear tubing and a Thermochromic fluid to see real time flow and temps.
Thermochromic would've been cool! Never thought of that! Clear tubing is something I considered, but I wanted the clean industrial look of the chromed pipes. :) Thanks though!

Thanks alot! :D

Thank you!

Thank you!

The monitor just "hangs" on the original VESA mount that I integrated to the entire plate that sits on the stand (Have 4 screws attached too in it's original mountingplate).
So I can use the entire build without a monitor if I want and use the stand just as that, a stand.
Originally the build would make the stand push down to it's lowest point, so I had to put in two screws in the internal slide of the mount to stop it from going too low. The weight of the chassi and monitor makes it "tilt" to it's most forward position but it suits my placement at my desk fine combined with the height I've locked it in.

I prefer a fluid without additives to avoid clogging the components of the loop, otherwise it's a good idea.

Fair? I'd love to know what your thoughts are a bit more specifik?
If it was a general out of ten score, I would have rated higher, but as the decriptors are given with the scoring number I only rate based on those.
Anyone giving a 7 or 8 out of ten may be reasonably expected to do so normally, but assigning superlatives such as "excellent" for a basic 6 is ludicrous.
I'll vote higher when they remove the ridiculous adjectives as I literally can't assign a "superb, incredible. or Nobel prize" to any cases deserving a higher numerical score.

Well, interesting chain of thoughts...
