Caselabs S8 + Rampage V Extreme

Hi Guys!

First post here and its a worklog! LOL, i'm a friend and long time follower of Dr Death. So my previous PC was a Corsair 800D with rigid tubing and Rampage 4 Extreme (photo below).

so the Corsair 800D was a great case and i truly enjoyed it. But it was time to move on as i was moving into my new home and the Corsair 800D was a little too tall for my study room, i was looking at something that wasnt as tall as the 800D but had all the space and function to accomodate all my watercooling hardware

Decided that the Caselabs S8 would best suit me in terms of size and watercooling requirements

More Accessories!

More Accessories!

I decided to go for the Gunmetal Grey option as the regular black and white cases in my opinion are a little to common

The Corsair 800D was my first

The Corsair 800D was my first attempt at rigid tubing and that was all free hand bending without any specialized bending tools other than the silicon tube. I destroyed so much tubes just to achieve this. Seeing how difficult and time consuming with free hand bending, I will be using a couple of bending and specialized tools to help simplify this build

The Dremel and Monsoon Bending kit worked like a MAGIC WAND!!! Best investment ever when it comes to rigid tubing!

Mounted the Monsoon Bending kit onto a piece of wood

I think the bending kit is a wonderful addition to rigid tubing, when I venture that direction (rigid) I'll be purchasing one as well. Looking forward to more pics!

Hi Gavin, nice to see you

Hi Gavin, nice to see you postting at Pro Clockers,  can't wait to see how the new build turns out !   Good choice on the 5820K, the one we use for our X99 motherboard reviews has no problem hitting 5GHz with water cooling.

If possible can you post some photos of your murder build you did awhile back.

Thanks Gavin

Good job on the build Jim,

Good job on the build Jim, but you  need a larger motherboard, your current board looks lost in such a big case.

Hey Stan,

Thanks for the kind words, i'm currently experimenting with the overclock of my 5820K i'm currently doing 4.5ghz on 1.28v which i think is quite decent, when i have more time over the weekend i will work on it to see if 5ghz is possible

Nice build Jim, that TH10 looks monster!!!

You need a dual socket system for that amount of space you have in your system like this one

I did some real cool bends

I did some real cool bends using boiling water to heat up the whole pice of tubing. That way you can mould it  like I did in my sons rig around the pump.

Some of the PCI-E sleeved

Some of the Blue PCI-E sleeved cables is starting to look a little stale from my opinion, i might be re-sleeving them when my NCASE M1 project is completed

Love the build

Love the build. Thanks for the share. Liked the tube bending kit. Great Job.

While using the bending kit did you find yourself needing more room then the size board you were working on?

Thanks Felheart! not really, the tubes comes in lengths of 1meter, i will cut the tube in lengths of 50cm. Its quite easy to maneuver the tubes once you start heating it and it softens
