Hi everyone! It's been a while since I a build!!! Things have been crazy for the last months with my daily work and I

haven't had the time to work on new builds since the end of summer.

I'm finally starting my build with the Asus Rampage V Edition 10 and a pair of 1070 Strix...all this inside a beautiful be

quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 case.

I will do a dual loop for the look of it and because I have the real estate to do it inside the case.

The color scheme is very neutral and monochromatic with the beautiful Carbon sleeving of CableMod. The coolant for both

loops will be clear with 2 different shade of UV blue (one in each loop).

So with this I will try to play with both RGB and UV together. If it doesn't look good, I will ditch the UV.


As always, I hope you will enjoy this build!

Don't worry about it akira749. We'll be patiently waiting. Your builds are always worth the wait! :)

Sorry guys it's been a long time since I posted!

Some delays with work but also with the build. I had some ideas for the reservoirs placement/setup....I tried many and I even switched the case from standard to inverted to standard to inverted and back to standard lolllllll

Nothing was going like I wanted. I tried different lengths of reservoir tubes all together and even than....nothing was going the way I wanted.

This week I had another idea and it might be the one I will use. I will try it today after I post this reply.

While some things weren't going the way I wanted, I had the time to install the blocks on the board and on the GPU's and installed them in the case.

Here's some pictures to show where it is now. Like I said, today i'm working on the pump/res placement and from there I should be able to begin the loop.



Monoblock installation!







GPU blocks installation!!







Installed in the case!!!






Take care and see you really soon!!

Any plans to cut the heatpipe so you can keep using the I/O shroud? I do like the look of that monoblock though...I was close to buying it...

I tried to heat it to see if I could keep the IO shield heatsink part but without success. Since I didn't wanted to cut the pipe, I decided to give it a shot with it and overall I like it even without it.
