  • PC-O11 XL: Rebirth

    After fighting the urge to upgrade for 5 years, I've finally given in. Pictured below is my last build, my 4th version of my Black&White builds, Black&White³.



    The reason why this new build is called Rebirth is because aside from the Dynamic XL, and a few water cooling parts, all items were purchased second hand. Daz. you may recognize the two XSPC EX360 radiators as they were from your Silent Sniper build! It signifies "birthing" new life into all of these used parts, and also the rebirth to my builds. All of my builds thus far have been themed black and white, however this time I spilled some Blue Raspberry Koolaid over everything. First time doing hard tubing and I'm surprised that I didn't have to redo any bends, especially that GPU>CPU bend.

    A big thanks to our fellow member Section31 for selling me the heart of this build.

    Looks awesome man! Those multi-directional bends are a royal pain, at least for me. But they look great when done right. Nice job!

      I have destroyed countless tubes trying to get one bent like you have going from the GPU to the CPU! Excellent work!

        Thanks! After doing the easier bends first, I had a feel of where I had to mark using a dry-erase marker to get the bends where I needed them. Measured a bunch of times and then went for the bend and prayed.

          I just had a hard time with making bends so close together going different directions, heating for the next bend was always and still is a pain. It could be the order that I went in too, where I started at one end and kept going. I had thoughts that maybe starting in the middle or something might be better but not enough tubing to experiment with haha.

            Congratulations! Your build is my pick for BOTM October!

            Great work! My OCD doesn't even flinch. Great skill in both building and photography!

            I like how Monoblock tubing was played, will take a note for myself.

              Thanks Daz! Took a while for me to find a loop order I liked especially since the monoblock needed the right port as the inlet. Threw out a couple of my original designs after I realized that haha.

                Friendly reminder that your build could be eligible for our 3rd Annual Modding competition, but you have to enter formally and re-post few images.

                A great pool of prizes and low crowded competition is almost guaranteed prize.
