Description

This build main purpose was to push the case to its absolute limits. There have been many builds done in this case with distribution blocks and water cooling but none that have a separate CPU and GPU loop. So It started off with taking lots of measurements to determine the clearances that the case can fit without modifying the case itself. Then the process began of creating test samples out of chipboard to ensure the right hole placements and overall distribution block dimension.

The main color theme that was chosen was Blue and White. This was used throughout the build with the motherboard being partially painted pearl white, fan shrouds painted pearl white, and radiators were painted metallic blue. The CPU loop is filled with custom mixed Mayhems Blue coolant and the GPU loop has Mayhems White coolant. Many parts of the build had custom paint. The TWO 360mm radiators were painted with a metallic sapphire blue paint, the 6 fans were painted with a pearl white, there is also a custom rear cover plate painted in pearl white to cover the rear fan holes. The custom from panel was cut using a CNC with the fractal design snowflake design with some addressable RGB strip behind it for backlighting. The snowflakes were also implemented inside on the custom made GPU backplate with a two-tone paint job.

This is beautiful... and that cable management! Amazing modding to the case. Surely this will be featured.

Thank You, cable management was a real challenge with the amount of cables that I used and the fact that there are 2 d5 pumps with drain lines to fit. Luckily the Define S2 has an incredible amount of space in the PSU shroud and the back of the motherboard tray.

The frist thing that came up when I saw this post was Lego Starwars the game, idk why.. I really dont. But I like starwars, so I also like this build. Very nice, well done!

CPU block?

Not the author of the post but it's an EK-Supremacy EVO (Nickel). Unfortunately they are an older model, and EK has since replaced them with other CPU blocks so they're discontinued.

Supremacy Evo the original, they are currently discontinued but you might be able to find them at a microcenter or frys. That's where I got mine.

Dang dude, that looks amazing! The tubing is so clean and the distribution blocks fit perfectly :O Big thumbs up

Thank you, the biggest challenge of the build was the 2 distribution blocks, I designed them to custom fit this case.

Amazing work! Feature well deserved, of course +1

One question though: Where did you hide the pumps? Are both directly behind the reservoirs, at the bottom of the case?

  • 8 days ago

Each pump is mounted directly to its own distribution block and they fit inside the bottom chamber without any modification to the case, which gives them about a 3-5mm space in between each of them. I wanted to take a photo of how tight the tolerances were but they are not visible with all the cables and psu inside.

Nice one! Had some tight fits with my last build as well. Very satisfying when you realise that it all comes together, isn't it? :D

Yea definitely, this is my favorite build to date, it just fits so well together.

I can't help but keep looking at this build, each time I see something new I like and how it's integrated so accurately...

Something extremely satisfying seeing a tight build perfectly suited to the case, without the faff of excessive plastic shrouds on the equipment inside. I get the zen-feels with this one.

Thank You, it was a very tedious process to get everything to fit perfectly. This case was an absolute dream to work in, there were zero modifications done to the internal frame of the case. It was like it was meant to house 2 pumps and 2 distribution blocks.

What a cool idea. I've seen dual loops before. I've seen distro blocks before. But using the surfaces/walls of the case to hold distro blocks for each loop, now that is some damn good thinking. Hats off to you, very good idea and well executed.

  • 5 days ago

Thanks, that was where the idea came about, no one has ever done dual distribution blocks with separate GPU and CPU loops. It was like a big puzzle in which every piece has to go in a certain order otherwise it wouldn't fit, it was also my first time designing distribution blocks so taking on the challenge of designing 2 with such tight tolerances was a challenge but Dennis over at Cyberden Systems who milled the blocks helped me out a lot since I had no knowledge on how to design the blocks. Ex. Oring groove, the spacing between channels, min screw spacing. But overall I'm very happy with the turnout and it's my favorite build to date.

how do you make a cpu actually cold

like i mean below freezing

  • 9 days ago

You'd have to use something colder than freezing, usually Ln2

No Ln2 just a typo lol, but I wish I could learn how to use Ln2

Thanks for letting me know, it was a typo the actual idle is 33C
