Hi guys,

This one is going to be a little different. I've decided to post a build log for this build however the build has been finished now for a few months. This was done around March this year when I was still in the middle of my move.

I had to get this build done along with another for an event. With the move and rushing to get it finished for the event I didn't have time for a build log.

For those interested to see I will get all the content out for this fairly fast :)

Hope you guys enjoy this one. I have to say the In Win H-Frame 2.0 is a stunning looking case.

Hi guys,

The theme for this build which I forgot to mention will be a bit art deco with some gold vinyl.

Here are the side panels :)

And lots of Bitspower watercooling gear! When this arrived at the time it was watercooling gear for two builds hehehe. And despite the look of that bottom box, everything was in one piece.

Hi guys,

I have all the cables in here and you can see some of the vinyl work done on the radiators as well as the In Win logo on the fans.

The only mod done to the case and even that has been super simple to do is the front radiator mount which is just done with a large L bracket to hold it up. With the pump/res combo attached to it with a Bitspower X bracket and res holders.

You also get a glimpse at the Bitspower True Brass fittings which will be used throughout the build.

Another thing to note with the cables is that the 24pin didn't actually end up working. Given that the PSU in this case is unique and has it's own form factor to suit the case, meaning that it is much larger. The pin-out must have been very different.

The cables came from Icemodz and it was the first time they did cables for this PSU. Without actually having the PSU there to inspect, it was a bit of guess work involved. The build was then needed for an event so there was no time to order another cable therefore the stock 24pin cable was used throughout the build. It doesn't look bad but not as nice as the custom one.

Anyways, enjoy the pics.

Hi guys,

Here are photos of the finished system. These were taken at a LAN Party back in March of this year where the build was first on display.

Hope you enjoy. I will have more photos up shorty.
