Definitely not ITX Build

by Xyphobia

Description

This is just my continuation of oversize parts in an itx case build log. Parts are still the same, with added oversize Radiator instead of using nzxt krakens slim radiator I apologize how bad with my hydro dip paint job... This is my first try and I'm still learning how to properly dip using hydro activators.

Just ignore the 3 cards in the rig, its just for show that everything can be stuffed in an itx case (Thermaltake core p1)

Just a quick specs: CASE: ThermalTake Core P1 Tempered Glass (ITX Case) Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula IX CPU: Intel i7 7700k 4.2ghz RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 3000mhz 8gb GPU: Asus Strix 1070ti, Asus strix 1070 2pcs Storage: Samsung EVO 850 250gb CPU Block used: NZXT Kraken x62 Tubes used: 16mm Fittings: Mostly Barrow 16mm Reservoirs: Unbranded 2pcs different sizes PUMP: EK DP2 Fans: Corsair hd120 2pcs Radiator: Unbranded Copper base 240mm Thick radiator PSU: HX1200 Corsair Platinum rated

How it started: It was just a crazy idea in my head that I was hoping to build an ITX using Bigger parts, thats why this project was created. But the original idea was, building a full tower case using an iTX motherboard. :D

Build Log on the case: I actually removed and cut the back panels: fan grill on the case so that the Radiator can be inserted on the case (THICK RADIATOR) And added few screw holes for the PSU mount. I also removed some metal parts inside the Thermaltake case for more cable management and more space... I used only 2.5" hard drive and ssd. The wires is easily been managed thanks to the big motherboard. I can actually hide cables on the back of the mobo. :D The CPU block i used was from the AIO of NZXT kraken x62. Destroyed it.. and converted to custom loop. Actually I turned of the Pump, simply disconnected some solder points on the pcb inside the CPU block. Changed the logo "NZXT" to Asus ROG logo

My thoughts: Im satisfied to what ive modified. However my Hydro dipping paint job is at very very worst at the moment.. I apologize for that.. this is my first time to initiate hydro dipping.. I just need practice and experience. The case is so open.. temps are showing 28C - 33C at Idle 50-60C multicore stress test.. What I didn't like; ITS TOO HEAVY for an ITX build. What I like, Oversize parts on an itx case looks great :D

By the way: This rig won 2nd place best in looks under small form category... And im really proud of it, and it was just a crazy idea in my head :D Leave me comments and suggestions on my build, hoping for new learning and ideas from you guys.. thanks.. have a good day! :D
