Hi Guys!

Here is "THE REDRIPPER" project that I’ve been planning to build since the mid-winter due to lack of spare-time. The components have been laying around for months now. I’ve had enough to stare every single day to them, lol. So I decided to begin at least with a build-log. At the beginning  i was doubting to go with AMD which it's first time to go with red team. I hope i won't be disappointed. This build will be used for 2D-3D modelling and video editing software which is very new for me.

I had no idea with what kind of paints to come up with. Did i even need to paint that aluminum brushed authentic case at all? Well, after making a few extra holes on fan holes (expanded a few mm) in front i had to recover it somehow. Then something more complicated came to my mind.

Anodized Color coat, Granite Stone paint, Matt black paint and off course primer.

I have lost many pictures during the process of the painting. Because my harddrive is got broke. These are what i have saved so far:(.

This sounds like a good build :D. You have to let me know how it turns out. I'm currently switching to the Red Team 1950X in my desk PC Build. Any Pictures for the build or plans?

It's time to assemble all other components to the motherboard and then install it to  the chassis. But, before that i need to deal with the bitspower's monoblock. Approximately all bitspower's acrylic water blocks are quite unclear/blurry. Decided to polish it with auto' headlight polisher and here is the result.

Man your build is beautiful - Is it all Bitspower blocks and are you doing hard or soft tubing?

Thanks. Appreciated. I use only Bitspower's monoblock. Rigid tubes and fittings are monsoon's and adapters are barrow's. I usually use barrow's fittings in my builds. No sponsors so far:). All from own budget.lol.

 

P.S: The Gpublock is also Barrow's. You'll see soon:). Just some patience.

I was thinking about using XSPC TR4 block on mine - We are almost the same components ;). I wish i could get a sponsor from mine. I cannot wait to see it

I was just on debate again  to decide to get which kind of m.2 heatsink for that Samsung  512gb 960 pro m.2  . I have noticed that ADATA has an extra-ordinary Semi-passive RGB  M.2  heatsink with 50mm fan. 

Since  ADATA hasn't  explained the exact cooling capacity of the  XPG Storm (it only says it makes SSDs 25% cooler, and it's not the  exact value). EKWB claims that  a passive heatsink can reduce temperature by 8-10°C, or even more with appropriate airflow. Since the XPG Storm has its own fan, i would  expect it to perform a bit better than passive heatsink-coolers. Meanwhile, the  50mm tiny fan runs with 16,500 RPM :). And  noise-level is  25 dBa, which is quite noticeable. But, as you see the heatsink is quite thick and it covers motherboard's 24 pin socket. So, i think i'll have to pass this one for now, even though it hurts to not be able to use it.:(.

In this case, it seems like i should go this time with EKWB's passive heatsink.

I was  thinking to make a  DIY back-lighting-backplate with 3mm acrylic before i install the gpu waterblock. Unfortunately i couldn't use this also with Zenith Extreme because of the distance between PCI-X16 and the DIMM-slots/AIO-shield is too short. And, i have noticed  that after i sticked all together:(. Anyways, after all struggles, i decided  to go without back-light this time . But, will let you see the process of the "making of "  it and final result(s).  Additionally, the "Jonbso" logo was also too borring. I found  also a solution for  that:).

 

The acrylic i used with backplate and chassis fron logo-plate 3mm thick. I used 800mm sanding paper to make the sharp edges. For the adhesive vinyl stickers i used  Silhouette cameo vinyl-cutter. For the good reflecting light  i used additionally  clear acrylic and also white adhesive vinyl at the backplate,  a black vinyl for to dimming the flowing lights and  30cm length of rgb led-strip. 

 

 

Cutting the 3mm acrylic with jigsaw.

Doesnt look that bad.

Made a few holes with dremel to the acrylic front-panel.

IMG_0114.jpg.be08fed95183d84852e241edf193a650.jpg

Silhouette cameo vinyl cutter with blade #2. Quite handy machine to be honest.

After sticking the adhesive vinly logos and then sanding with 800mm sanding paper. 

IMG_0126.jpg.bc427ae284e02107e9543ded1c09ce61.jpg

 

First layer was red, and afterwards painted them with dark black.

IMG_0129.jpg.127cda6a55550bad4a248d877d8f70e0.jpg

 

Logos peeled and painted in black.

IMG_0137.jpg.233edd5627ce91f3145a90c5e3f23691.jpg

 

The reason why the backplate was so thick it was because of i have sticked behind the backplate an extra 2mm cleart acrylic for reflecting lights. In here i used white vinyl and glued the acrylics together.

After i found it out that backplate won't be suitable due to it's thickness. I decided to go with old-school and painted the rear-side with ordinary red spray. Here is the results.

Man that is one beautiful build - I love the textured stoned look of the black paint on the chassis. I can not wait to see how well this turns out.  Are you using Red Liquid?

I haven't mentioned clearly what sort of coolant i'am going to use. But, now must say-> Primochill's VUE Razor red or Powder red. I think i'll give it a go to the razor red this time. Soon uploading new pictures. Thanks man. By the way, your build is  one of the pain in the a***s build! Hats off:).

I was planning to use EK Cryofuel - Never used Primochill Vue. I cannot wait to see this done man it looks beautiful already. Kinda in envy of your paint job on the case - better than anything I've painted so far. Thanks man- Threadripper brothers :D

Well, after a long wait and settling in the new house. I began gradually do some progressing about this project. Will share a few pictures about what i have done so far. 

 

Well, i have decided to go with TT-Riing  120mm RGB fans. Before that i needed to do some make-up. Decided to play with Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter  a bit to match the color(s). 

 

Here is the results.

For the radiators, i just used whatever i got, at least  they're copper radiators(2x Barrow full copper 360x27mm radiators). Flushed them with vinegar and hot water. I hope they're as clean as it supposed to be.

I firstly decided to go with EVGA Supernova G3 1000W Powersupply. I have realised afterwards that the sleeved cables are not suitable and it belongs to corsair's X series. Well, i've had a plan B (luckily) got a spare powersupply (TT  thoughpower Grand Series 850w RGB PSU). I doubt it's going to work. But, will use it just to test the loop until EVGA's sleeved cables arrived. By The way the sleeved cables are my friend's Shakmods. Thank to him from here even it's all paid for:).

 

 

TT  thoughpower Grand Series 850w RGB PSU and Shakmods Red&Black sleeved Psu cables.
