Installed another Enermax Magma Intake Fan, Teleios Dark Red, Red, Black Sleeving Arrived, UV Red Power Connectors Arrived. I am up in the air about using the UV connectors since they are all a slightly different shade of UV Red :mad:.

Next movie is to install new ram, 3 more exhaust fans up top and get started on custom sleeving.

Nice build you've got going on there NYk20z3. 🙂
Nice to see more air cooling setups. The MegaHalems are in the top performers and they look great to. I too plan on staying with air, never tried water. I'm choosing the Cryorig R1 Ultimate for CPU cooling, still putting together my parts list though. If you don't mind me asking, how's does the Enermax Magma fans color match to the ASUS board (red in particular)?
Anyways, look forward to seeing the custom sleeving pics.

CPU Cooler is now in PNP using 2 Noiseblocker PL-PS 140mm PWM -

I ran a few benchmarks and notice up to a 5C temp drop so although that's not much it does have a positive affect.


Sleeved my Enermax Magmas with Red Teleios sleeving, I also used a Black connector for the 3 pin power but this pic does not reflect that.
