  • Corsair 280X - Full Hardline Loop - Vertical GPU Mod

    Just finished my case swap / upgrade and thought you all might like to have a look. The CPU block and GPU were upgraded along with some fittings and fans with the case itself. Oh and yes that is a HDD block that isn't connected. I might attempt something on the next coolant change but it's tight and I don't see it looking clean

    Looks great, nice vertical GPU mod. What is the lighting? Looks like white with some UV thrown in.

      Thanks! The lighting is Corsair RGB strips and some Darkside white LED strips. Not sure whats up with the purple tint only seems to show in pictures just looks white in person.

              No issues with the power supply, dont find it to be loud and the fan isn't spinning most of the time. Happy I picked it up just for the extra space on the back. Cheers

                Well done man! Not an easy task building in this small of a case. Especially when adding custom liquid loop.
