Project : SNOW

 

I am back with a new build for 2018, I want to start by saying a big thank you to Thermaltake for supporting this project.

 

I am doing a Ryzen 1600 build paired with a MSI 1070 gaming x8 graphics card. I will be building in the core P3 from thermaltake, this will be fully watercooled.

 

I have set myself a big challenge to think more outside the box for when it comes to where to place the reservoir and radiator. I have also set myself a challenge to make everything white so I will be doing a lot of painting and resleeving and a lot of cables.

 

Here what I will be using,

Welcome back,

I have a little update for you all,

I wanted to move the radiator to the bottom of the case where the PSU would be, I have not seen this on a core P3, I needed to make sure to would support the radiator, as I do want to mount this to the wall.

I am using 19mm x 19mm aluminium to start the framing of the holder.

Mark where I need to cut,

The bits I need,

Marked where the hole will go,

Drill a 4 mm hold for the rivets,

Test fit,

The 360 radiator sat very nice in the space now needed to make the support,

Now to make a new GPU bracket, but thought I would be easier to mod the one I have, I need this to be shorter.

After, I am going to add some 19mm x 19mm aluminium to the outside of the bracket.

Here is the end result, I just want to stress that this is not the finish product for the brackets, this will give me a feel on what it will look like.

I have a big update, most of the painting has been done, and I have started to do the cables.

I will start with the Pacific RL360 Rad, I have painted this snow white, covered the fins and did light coats, the spray paint I use is Montana.

Before,

I have also painted the heatsinks, I am thinking about adding some green to them.

I wanted to paint the Thermaltake tough power 600w PSU white, this was a lot harder than I thought it would be, I striped the full PSU down but couldn’t find the last screw so I needed to cover all the enteral components. I also made sure to save the labels as I want to add these back on to the PSU.

Before,

Next up to paint was the thermaltake Pacific W4 plus CPU block and the Pacific RGB fittings. I started with the CPU block, I heated the front of the block to loosen the glue of the black back ground as, I want this to be white, I had already made some little TT logo’s to cover the TT logos on the back ground, then I just lightly sprayed it white. I also added the bracket for Ryzen and painted this white too. The fittings were very time consuming, I wanted to get as much detail of the fitting as I could.

Sorry for all the photos, think I have went over the top, I have a few more then that it. I have started to sleeve the cable here is the 24 pin.

Hopefully the next update will not be as long, need to do the pump and the GPU, then that’s all the painting done.

If you have any questions or feedback please let me know.

Richard.
