    I am a believer in the rule of thumb:

    Not everyone would know to go back and look at the past couple pages.

    What cable sleeves are they? or are they extensions?
    I wanted to find some red ones like that but most that fit the Corsair series PSU's have the cheap looking rubber on the ends.

    That's the ones he's using by the looks of it.

    Yeah, using the Corsair cable kit. The black heatshrink is unfortunately something that is more or less needed. Tried braiding without the heatshrink myself and the braiding kind of disintegrates after some time making it horribly ugly.

    Pics as promised. Yes, I left the packing bubble in the first shot

    Never tried watercooling, figured this wasn't the time to try doing it myself from scratch so had Cyberpower do it, they did a great job and I love it

    Cyberpower fixed up a custom loop for you?! Holy shit, I had no idea they could do that. I thought virtually every PC building company stayed away from offering custom loop services because of the potentially massive damage (i.e. warranty explosion) caused by leaks.

    What kind of warranty were you given on that?

  9. #11529
    Standard:

    8.1 The purchased product is covered under warranty by the "seller" for 3 years commencing on the date the "buyer" received the PC. This warranty is limited to 2 years parts, and 3 years repair/labour.
    8.2 All hardware parts which are in a built system from the "seller" are covered for 2 years commencing the date the "buyer" received the PC.

    Yep, didn't even need a topup. It was super well packed, filled with bubbles and around the outside with peripheral boxes and flo-pak and stuff. I was nervous too (especially when the UPS guy rolled it off the back of the wagon...) but not had an issue with it.

    It has a custom overclock too, the processor is stable at 4.4Ghz

    That's extremely good warranty considering it's a custom loop. You should still learn the in's and out's of maintaining a custom loop as fast as you can, I've read that watercooling folk typically drain+refill their loop every 6 months. At the 1 year mark you will want to dissemble the loop and get all the parts flushed and cleaned.

    I can't think what Cyberpower could possibly do to make something like that hold together for 2-3 years without the performance severely degrading and/or leaks springing up.

    Overall gratz on the build, really sleek

    The water gets a bit ugly if you don't refill for 3 years but if there are no leaks from the very beginning, there usually won't be any after 3 years either. Performance barely degrades if it does at all.

    4.4GHz sounds very conservative, you could probably push it a lot higher.

  14. #11534
    I typically drain+fill every 6 months. Coolants are alot better than they was 6 years ago so I don't think it's necessary to do it more often than every two years now. I find it extremely relaxing and fun to maintain it though, and coolants are pretty cheap, so I will still stick to my 6 months schedule.

    4.4 is a bit on the conservative side, a custom loop deserves 4.6+ tbh. If you want to keep it as quiet as possible then your 4.4 is just about perfect for that

    I only just saw the heat shrink on it now that everyone's mentioned it.

    Getting a Modular Corsair PSU, and want sleeved cables, but didn't know how good they looked/if it's worth it.
    After seeing them on your rig in actual pictures, I'm definitely buying some.

    It's been getting great reviews as far as comfort and hardware goes (really nice screen too), but really suffering in the games department due the simple fact that there are jack-all Android games made with a gaming controller in mind. Mobile gaming these days is like 95% touchscreen.
