    The White Phantom Rabot

    Title: The White Phantom Robot
    Hello.
    This build started out as a normal rig, but to overclock better I started with water cooling. This lead to the birth of the white phantom.
    During the initial setup the rad was mounted outside the case due to spacing problem but with the new build it will be kept inside the case. As well as an additional radiator mounted in the bottom.

    The parts are the following:
    Chassi: NZXT Phantom White
    CPU: 3770k with XSPC Raystorm waterblock
    GPU: Gtx 670 with XSPC Razer Waterblock
    Mobo: MVE, planning to water cool the NB and SB if EK releases a plexi version
    Pump/Res: DDC 3.25 with XSPC Dual Bay res/pump top
    Radiator: XSPC RX360 and Alphacool nexxxos UT60 240
    Radiator Fans: 3x Noiseblocker mulltiframe pwm fans and 2x Scythe UK3000
    Tubing and Coolant: Masterkleer uv-blue/clear tubing and either WFI water with blue dye or EK ekoolant blue
    Fittings: XSPC 13/19mm

    The build:
    The build will be following the idea of a phantom of a robot and will be a bit modded as well as painted. The side panel will get a clear window and the top of the case will be modified to specially fit a 360 rad. The bottom storage cages will be removed and the 240 rad will be placed there instead.

    Picture of the build pre-modding will be uploaded tomorrow-

    Here are a picture of it before I started to pick everything apart, the paper is there due to a tube on the gpu water block loosened after moving the rad getting ready to empty the system, causing a small leak and slowing down the emptying:

    And here everything have been removed from the case as well as the top and a storage cage, the psu is still there but not installed, didn't have any place to place it at....

    Tomorrow I'm thinking of removing the GPU water block to check the thermal pads, and will include a simple guide on how to mount the Razer 670 GPU water block with backplate.

    In what way do you mean?

    As for the build it will be a bit of a stand still for a while, I have no idea when the new parts will come in, UPS seems to have some problems with the transport and I will be away for a week.

    The build is blue when it's powered, and I'll keep using a blue theme until I'm able to get a black case or spray paint this one black as well as solder in red leds.

    The reason the coolant is green is due to tubing discolor as well as the coolant being a mixture between EK Ekoolant and distilled water, the reason to that is another story...

    They gave me a tracking number, non-working '-_-, it started working, only took em a week...

    Now back after a vacation and I've started to work with the case again. The parts from Aquatuning arrived a while before I was back home and lucky enough a friend where feeding the cats when the package was delivered.

    The 2nd HDD cage is now removed after removing the rivets holding it in place. I will start to do more work tomorrow as well as drawing the draft for the new top. I will also drill the holes for the 2x120mm radiator. Pictures will be up tomorrow as well as a test fitting and measurement to see where the 3x120mm rad will be positioned in the top.

    My cat was also very happy about the parts being delivered, or rather that he got a new box to play with:

    The build is soon at the stage where I can power it up and test it, and will be doing a 3d model of the top to send to a friend of mine to use a laser cutter to cut it out.

    Due to the camera being missing for a while I have not been able to take a lot of pictures but here are some.

    The bare GPU with some of the TIM removed, I don't know what I was doing before when I applied the TIM...
