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,

39441360775_c38b8a209b.jpg

Drill a 4 mm hold for the rivets,

39441360675_db5efa67ac.jpg

Test fit,

26467309308_c1b9026c31.jpg

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

39441367765_70d8294fcc.jpg

 

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.

Before

39441360395_977c2620bd.jpg

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

39441367555_8938a7380b.jpg

 

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,

After,

41436117702_fa1b6035cf.jpg

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

Before,

After,

41436077332_4a92abc150.jpg

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,

After,

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.

26469339887_8e459f2132.jpg

40627491594_5c13837835.jpg

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.

Hi Everyone,

This is just a small update, I have had a few issues with my CNC and it no longer works I have blown the spindle, so I have not done as much as I can hoped.

I have been painting the thermaltake Pacific P1 pump, this has cause me loads of issues, as I only get to mod on a weekend. I have painted this 3 time and I can see I am 98% happy with it. The photo below is showing you the process the 1st time I did it.

Before,

41968622201_7bbfd25eb4.jpg

27099924807_067d364bcc.jpg

41250131914_2e22b97b87.jpg

I needed to sand the parts done so the primer would stick to the parts, can I use spray can you apply the paint.

41250132544_4b48fe3661.jpg

You can see the paint looks a bit bumpy, I then did some vinyl logos and added them to the pump and airbrushed the green paint on.

40161770020_037017b4b3.jpg

Here is the end result,

41968603121_5894ec46b6.jpg

As you can see it looks ok but I want it looking better. So I striped the pump and started again.

41250133054_05f078da69.jpg

This time I used the airbrush for every layer I also wanted to add green to the D5 cover and to the bracket.

41968622271_fc7e171936.jpg

I did this over a few nights adding one layer at a time,

40161770160_ccd635847e.jpg

Here is the end result,

41968622291_d023686de3.jpg

41250132014_e337b9a0c6.jpg

41957474512_df6d311d95.jpg

I am much happier now with the end result.

I still have a lot to do, I still have a lot of wires to sleeve, fans to paint and a graphics card to paint.

I did hope to show more but I thought it would be best to post something than none at all.

Until next time,

Richard.

Hey,
 
I have been really busy the last few weeks working of the build,
 
Let start with the biggest issue, I broke my CNC which I have only had for about 6 months, I got this from china, have been able to do a few mod with it but not the main reason I got it. This meant I needed to ask Praetex Design for some help in cutting the design I made for the custom reservoir,
 
Here is the design I made in fusion 360,
 
42452698571_c36aef323f_z.jpg
Alex was able to produce the product and it turned out great.
 
28579632808_8ecee5c332_z.jpg
 
Here is me leak testing it,
 
40644410670_54e0733c76_z.jpg
 
I then need to add the reservoir to the case. I must taped and marked the holes about 5 times I didn’t want to mess this up.
 
Before,
 
42452697301_d4bca66b64_z.jpg
 
During,
 
42452697691_955af8c4be_z.jpg
 
After,
 
41550550425_f74efd4d34_z.jpg
 
Think it turn out great.
 
Now the Thermaltake Riing Plus fans as you can see from the photo above I needed to paint the fans so I strip them down.
 
 
 28579639668_f1db33acb8_z.jpg
 
 
42402057522_478f68b6ee_z.jpg
 
I have taken these fans apart before with out breaking any of the clips, this time I must of broke 5 in total, the fans still hold together well.
 
I didn’t take many photos of the painting but I just made sure I gave a lot of light coats
 
42452698611_c855ceeddf_z.jpg
 
 
41729599334_c1679082ef_z.jpg
 
I think the end result looks great,
 
42452699331_ab2f6c7af0_z.jpg
 
What do you think?
 
 
Next up was the MSI 1070 Gaming X graphic card,
 
I followed the same process with the fans and striped the card right down. If you are going to do this and paint the fan you are going to have to bend two metal clips over (cable management) which holds the cable for the fan.
 
41729608584_d0a98f5e5a_z.jpg
 
 
28579632118_dcc2f3b05f_z.jpg
 
 
 
 
I need to take the sticker off the fans before I paint these I wanted to reused the stickers.
 
I made sure I did lots of light coats of the paint.
 
Here are the after photos,
 
Fans 41729613144_1a13a730bb_z.jpg
 
Housing,
 
40644413340_3114ccd4f9_z.jpg
 
27582545857_6dc50860ef_z.jpg
 
End result,
 
28579639398_e6846fd4bb_z.jpg
 
Just want to make it clear I am going to add a bit of green on to the card. I have also add a white ring on the MSI stickers to hide the red.
 
I need to add a little bit of white vinyl where the MSI logo glows, again this was just to hide the red.
 
40644409140_d7e412b408_z.jpg
 
I was not going to show this next photo until the build was completed, what the heck here it is anyway.
 
28579630188_e3827aed63_z.jpg
 
We still have work to do I need to support the GPU better so going to add an enclosure to the PSU this will then support the GPU. I am also changing the green out of my cable I made early to a better match green. I want to added as much detail as I can to the build.
 
I am wanting at add a enclosure behind the case to hide the internal wires.
 
Like always I hope you like the build log so far, if you have any question or feedback please leave below or come find me on Facebook / Instagram

    There's a thing here. Somehow it moved to the top of the page, but I didn't do it. No, really! But still, Cheaps is likely to blame...
