    Project Apex - A Sponsored showcase

    Hello Ladies and Gentleman! Today I give you APEX, a Swiftech USA showcase build featuring sponsored parts from Teamgroup and Nanoxia.

    This was a very difficult project for me, as I have never done any sort of graffiti or graf techniques. Fading and blending with rattle can was a totally new experience, and expensive at that!
    When Swiftech asked if I would be interested in working with them, I was over the moon to mod a showcase for the company that I bought my first ever watercooling parts from so many years ago.

    Build List:
    Mobo - Gigabite z390 Gaming X
    CPU - Delidded i3 8350k @ 5.3ghz
    GPU - MSI 1080ti Aero OC
    Ram - TeamGroup T-Force Delta 2 4x4 3000mhz
    SSD - TeamGroup T-Force Rainbow 240gb
    PSU - EVGA 750g3
    Case - Heavy airflow modded NZXT h700i

    Watercooling:
    CPU - Swiftech Apogee LT w/Iris ARGB
    GPU - Swiftech Komodo 1080ti w/painted backplate.
    Pump/Res - Swiftech Maelstrom 100mm d5 w/Iris ARGB
    Radiators - 2x Swiftech Hydrae GT 360
    Compression Fittings - Nanoxia CF 16mm hardline
    Angled Fittings - Nanoxia CF 45's
    Drain - Dazmode Darkside Pushvalve
    Fluid - EK cryofuel Amber Orange

    Misc:
    Fans - Swiftech Helix 120mm w/Iris ARGB
    Controllers - Swiftech Iris ARGB Eco Controllers
    Lighting - Dazmode Darkside Rigid LED Strips - Orange(top and basement)
    Cables - Tpbmods created, using Telios Sleeving from Mainframe Customs
    Cable Combs - Nanoxia CF with splatter paint job
    Paint - BombingScience.Com Ironlak/Moltow/FlameBlue


    Without further delay, I give you APEX!

    Also, on the note about the Swiftech logo, youre 100% right! I hadnt noticed it until it was far too late, like installed too late!
    Thankfully, they were understanding of the mistake as its still a representation of the brand and is distinguishable
    Cool beans, glad it worked out, the painting is still epic in my books

    Thanks for posting the build log. Like I mentioned in your BOTM thread I love the paintwork, is it all paint or is there some vinyl like in the black/red brick pattern on the pump/res mount? Also congrats on being asked to build it in the first place, would be very exciting.

    *Edit* Definitely not trying to nit pick as I generally like your builds but I'm in marketing and some things stand out to me like branding. One thing that caught my eye, the photo of the interior of the case at the back panel with the sponsor logos on it, the Swiftech logo looks backwards. The triangle with the line through it should be on the left side of the 'S' but in the photo it is on the right. I just know most companies are highly protective of their brands and they might freak about that...
    Cheers,
