Project reDefine R5


Finally I got the time to make a log about this build.
This is a build I did with huge support from MSI Nordic. Without them, this build would never had been a reality.

My plan from the start was to make a very unique Define R5 build, something different, something that had hopefully never been seen before.
Therefore I began looking at the case to figure out, in what way I could change the layout of the case completely. I then got the idea of moving the PSU to the front top of the case, which gave me the oppotunity to fit a 420mm radiator in the bottom of the case.
Afterwards I got the idea to rotate the graphics card 90° so that the cooler will be facing the window.
Regarding the window, I was not happy with the little window that the R5 provides. I therefore decided to go with a full plexi sidepanel made of 5mm thick acrylic.
Those were the basic ideas before actually started the build.

The specifications for the build are following.


MSI Z170A MPower Titanium
Intel i5 – 6600K
MSI GTX1080 GamingX 8G
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT White 2400MHz 4x4Gb
Intel 600p M.2 128Gb
Seasonic Silent Snow 750W
Fractal Define R5


Alphacool VPP655 – PWM
Alphacool Eisbecher D5 250mm Plexi
Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 420mm
Alphacool Eisrohr 13/10mm PETG
Alphacool Ultra Pure Water
Mayhems Dye Purple
Monsoon Hardline fittings

I have a ”softspot” for custom cables. Therefore are all the cables and sleeving made by myself.
Making this build was a very stressfull process for me. I had a very tight time schedule, so not very much time to do a whole lot of modding. But I managed to pull it off and have the build ready for DreamHack Winter.

I really hope that all of you like the build. Please let me know what you think of this build/mod.
Looking forward to hearing your opinions.

First some pictures of the hardware.







Then a little work in progress shots of the cables.




And finally, the build it self.:)
