THE CURRENT RGB TREND RGB lighting on computer hardware has been around for quite some time; from memory modules, motherboards, graphics cards, down to custom water cooling parts. Most recent themed builds incorporate these components, which complete the overall design or feel the builder wants to convey and leave spectators in awe. The freedom of choosing colors from the full RGB Spectrum, as well as gaining control over selecting its effects, is of high demand especially from custom PC builders, modders, and enthusiasts. Being able to control everything using a single suite provides ease of access since it eliminates the need to install individual controllers for each component, and shortens the time needed to learn how to navigate each individual interface. ASUS AURA SYNC Having all those lighting options make it seem like things are in perfect place until you see each component light up in disarray. This paved way to the software and firmware development from one of the best RGB Synchronization software in this ecosystem, the ASUS Aura Sync. This interactive software suite enables every hardware component that is connected to the motherboard to react as fast as 24 times in a second and gives users control over everything including the exact frequency at which one component shall execute the desired effect (i.e. All components will perform the breathing effect at the same time). In addition, you can set one component to light up faster than another or delay it by a few seconds to make it look like they are taking turns when in pulsating mode, or have them demonstrate a domino effect which is also known as the “running lights”. These are just some of the effects that you can play with and there’s definitely more once you get your hands on it. Ultimately, it brought a solution to synchronization and a new challenge to creativity, so we can all enjoy a spectacular light show! ZADAK MOAB AURA2 DDR4 We, at ZADAK, are always on the move to provide high quality and aesthetically detailed products that best suit almost every build/mod that you can think of. As an example, our previous product releases --the ZADAK SHIELD DDR4 and SHIELD SSD -- are favorable among PC modders and builders around the globe; they are also compatible with ASUS Aura Sync. We acknowledge and are pleased with this advancement so we’ve worked on producing a memory module in favor of such development. Taking the challenge led us to our latest product -- the ZADAK MOAB AURA2 DDR4. This is the first memory module in 2018 that got certified by the new ASUS Aura Sync Program. It takes a lot to develop a product that works in this new system because the hardware needs to be quick at responding at the commands of Aura Sync, we stepped our game up and did the following: 1. Double the Clock Speed -- The previous generation MCU is at 1600MHz whereas the next-generation MOAB AURA2 DDR4 is at 3200MHz. With twice the capacity, the computing ability and responsiveness gained greater heights. 2. Massive ROM Upgrade -- The ROM capacity was upgraded to 32KB from 8KB which is 4 times the improvement that results to four times buffer capacity for future functions. 3. Increased Power -- LED power supply was increased to 320mA where the previous one is only at 140mA. This turned out to a more flexible pattern in terms of adjusting brightness. Moving on its overall appearance the ZADAK MOAB AURA2 DDR4 is stealthy metallic grey, this allows the LED to stand out making your desired lighting effect easily noticeable. A diffuser is also present on top of the LED so that the light spreads evenly and does not hurt the eyes. Looking closer on the heat sink reveals the very artistic panel linings which ZADAK is very proud of as it was highly appreciated with our previous products. FINAL THOUGHTS In the end this combination between the ASUS Aura Sync and ZADAK MOAB AURA2 DDR4 is something that every custom PC builder that wishes a spectacular light show is hoping for. A complete software synchronization program that lets you do what your heart desires when it comes to impacting your build with using perfectly executed lighting effects, combined with the first ASUS Aura Sync certified memory module that packs a powerful computing power with an overall outstanding physique that may very well be fitting for any kind of themed build. We have ourselves a powerhouse of form and function and we are very proud and excited to share the user experience to everyone in the PC gaming, building, case modding and enthusiasts communities. Whether you are into explosive RGB patterns or single color lighting effect and synchronization this will be a very interesting venue for everyone to learn and make the most out of your creativity by the use of fully customizable lighting.

Custom water-cooled systems have become really popular in recent years because of the optimal cooling solution that it offers, as well as the attraction that it adds to the overall appearance of a build. Maintenance of a water-cooled PC build is quite a challenge. And while dismantling a work of art that you spent blood and sweat on is not exactly enthusing, breaking things down into pieces before ultimately ending up with a beauty is an integral part of PC Modding. Ideally, you’d want to do a clean-up every 6 months to keep the liquid pristine and see to it that the thermal conductor on your CPU Block hasn’t completely dried up. If it’s impractical to do this on the other hand, keeping the system running for up to a year is A-Okay though the coolant might not appear as vibrant as it was on your first fill. In addition, observing the unit’s temperature can also help you decide on when to do maintenance. An increase by 10 degrees Celsius or more is basically your cue.
Introduction So you're interested in watercooling your computer but, you're teetering between an AIO (all in one) solution and a full blown custom loop. Knowing what's involved can help you be fully informed on which will best suit your needs. Custom watercooling has many advantages over the traditional way of using heatsinks and fans. It's more efficient, quieter and it looks undeniably awesome. There's information available on what's included in a custom watercooling loop but, not much in the way of details from the perspective of a Professional Case Modder. Everybody has their own way of doing custom watercooling loops and after doing it for years I've come across a lot of useful information. We'll take you on a journey into the ways we choose which paths to take and how to implement those decisions. There's nothing like having useful tips, tricks and give you inside look into making a custom hardline watercooling loop. Methods to the Madness The order that you connect hardware doesn't matter as far as performance goes. The golden rules I go by is, make sure your reservoir feeds directly your pump, place a drain port at the lowest part of the loop and plan to fill through the top of your reservoir. This leaves us with a lot of space for creativity. Hardline is quickly becoming the standard in custom watercooling loops. Hardline is tubing typically made from PETG or acrylic. While it can be more difficult to implement; the final product is beyond worth it. I've always been a believer that each computer system has its own style. You can change that style drastically depending how you place your watercooling tubing. Take this into consideration while planning your layout. Start out by putting stop fittings on all the ports that won't be used. Stop fittings are caps used to seal off ports that are unused. This will save you from a massive headache if you forget down the road. When determining a watercooling loop or path I use a pen, pencil, paper and sometimes a ruler. Starting out I'll draw the main components like the radiator, reservoir, CPU block etc in pen. This lets me to make changes to the tubing paths that are drawn in pencil without messing up my main components drawn. I prefer to play around with quite a few different arrangements or paths before implementing them. Now that I have a sketched out a guideline of the routes for my tubing I can look inside the case to make sure there's not any foreseeable issues with the path I've picked. Sometimes adjustments will need to be made as you go; it's all a part of the process Making the Connections Figuring out the length of tubing from hardware to hardware can be tricky at first. There are several methods that can be used to make it easier. When I first started I used thin metal wire that was easy to bend but, retained its shape. A pipe cleaner can also be substituted for thin wire. This gets you close to knowing the tubing needed and can also be used to determine the bends. You'll need to consider the tubing will go into each fitting about 10mm, which needs to be taken into account when determining the length. Always making sure to add a little extra both before and after the bend which allows you to fine tune it. Making Those Cuts and Bends Cutting hardline can be done using a rotatable pipe cutter, mini mitre and coping saw. There's a many ways you can cut hardline tubing. The mitre/coping saw allows for a straight, even cut that can be quicker than a rotatable pipe cutter. Bending hardline can be tricky at first. You'll also need a latex insert which goes inside the hardline and keeps the tubing from collapsing when making bends. A heat gun is used to warm up the tubing enough to make it bendable. The tubing is then rotated back and forth; making sure to evenly heat the tubing until it becomes soft. Using a slow, even pressure make your bend to the required angle. You can also buy mandrels which will make it easier to bend to specific angles however, mandrels are not required. Once you have your hardline tubing cut and bent it's time to chamfer the ends. Tools are sold which will allow you to easily chamfer the tubing. It'll make a taper at the end of the tube which gives it a better junction inside the fittings. Now that your loop is in order it's time to double check the fittings to make sure they're all screwed together tightly throughout the loop. This will help limit the chances of leaks in the next step; leak testing. To Leak or Not To Leak It's important to limit the chances of getting a leak but, we also want to prepare just in case it does happen. Disconnect all power cables except for the one that's needed to power the pump. That way if a leak does occur, it can be dried out without damaging components. Typically the power supply is activated through the motherboard. In order to get it powered up while disconnected, you'll need to jump the green wire with a ground wire. If you're uncomfortable jumping it this way, you can always buy a PSU jumper for a few bucks online. Paper towels are your best friend! Fold a few into a bundle and place them under each fitting connection. This serves two purposes; it catches any leaks before getting to your hardware and it makes it easier to spot small leaks. With the power supply off we need to fill up the reservoir. Usually I'll fill it up about ¾ of the way to the top; making sure to add coolant slowly to limit extra air bubbles. Take notice of the fitting junctions as you fill your loop. If you spot a small leak you can tighten the affected fitting or drain what you put in to make adjustments. Now that the reservoir is most the way full, it's time to turn your pump ON. You want to run it long enough for it to empty most of the reservoir without running the pump dry. Running the pump dry can cause it to heat up which could result in damage. Add more coolant and power the pump again to push it through the system. Repeat this step until coolant is coming into the inlet in the reservoir. By now your system will be full and it's a good time to thoroughly check the system to make sure that there is absolutely no leaks. After a good check, you can power up the pump and just let it run by itself. This allows air to work its way out of the system, as well as gives the loop plenty of time to confirm that there's no small leaks present. Most recommended letting the pump run like this for 24 hours before connecting all the PSU wires and firing up your machine for the first time. Closing We've taken you through some useful tips on building your own custom hardline watercooling loop. Soon you'll be the master of your own setup and air cooling will be a thing of the past. Doing your own custom loop can give you an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. At first it can seems scary but, all that fades away quickly. Youtube is your friend and they're a massive resource of “how to” watercooling videos. Make sure to buy extra tubing; especially your first time as mistakes will be made. There's one thing I can guarantee. If you do your own custom watercooling loop; you'll never look back. I've never felt more proud of accomplishing something then when I finished my first custom loop.
Breaking apart custom water cooled build. Custom water-cooled systems have become really popular in recent years because of the optimal cooling solution that it offers, as well as the attraction that it adds to the overall appearance of a build. Maintenance of a water-cooled PC build is quite a challenge. And while dismantling a work of art that you spent blood and sweat on is not exactly enthusing, breaking things down into pieces before ultimately ending up with a beauty is an integral part of PC Modding. Ideally, you’d want to do a clean-up every 6 months to keep the liquid pristine and see to it that the thermal conductor on your CPU Block hasn’t completely dried up.

In addition, observing the unit’s temperature can also help you decide on when to do maintenance. An increase by 10 degrees Celsius or more is basically your cue. WHEN TO BREAK IT AND MAKE IT? 1.Component Upgrades Switching Processors, Graphics cards and sometimes RAM or SSD if they are part of the loop to improve PC performance or to revamp your entire system 2.When transitioning from one kind of tubing to another Moving from soft to rigid tubing, PETG to copper tubing, and others to match the aesthetics of a themed-build or to just try out something new 3.Adding additional water cooling components Installing an extra radiator, a water distribution plate, pump or tubes to match other upgraded components in the system Check these things out for a positive building experience: Time and Effort Due to the fact that it takes a lot of time to drain, swap out parts and test for leaks, even expert builders find installing new hardware in a water-cooled build a test of patience. You might want to pick a time of the week when you can give it your full attention like days heading towards the weekend. Back to the Drawing Board! Fitting angles and loop courses will most likely change, so you need to plan ahead. It’s not a must but using a software solution like Sketch Up is definitely a big help with getting everything inside your head organized into a visual of a possible outcome. But then again, a pen and paper never goes out of fashion. Gravity Falls Draining a water-cooled build can be tricky if not carefully planned. Strategically placing a drain port on the lowest section of the loop is a must-do. It ensures that we can easily empty the loop as needed in the future. Tissue, please… Prepare a bundle of tissue paper before draining water from the loop; it will come in handy when you need to wipe accidental spills and it can be used to catch coolant drips when testing. You can place them around the fittings, connectors, in areas between parts like the tubing and CPU water block, as well as on top of the Graphics card and so on as you see fit. Playing it safe Start things off by making sure that you’ve removed all the cables that supply power to your machine. This will give you freedom to move things in and out, so you can conveniently drain all the liquid out of the loop. No cables no problem as shown on the picture below. The Flush One thing that is constant when replacing any of the components of your water-cooled build is that you have to drain the coolant out before you can swap around parts. This is critical to avoid getting water where it’s not welcome. Trying Stuff Out Going from soft to rigid tubing requires changing all compression fittings, since the ones you used for the earlier will definitely not work with the latter and vice versa. Also, keep the different sizes of rigid tubes and fittings in mind. Say you’re using a 16mm rigid tube. You should pick out compression fittings matching its size. Same goes if you are to switch from a specific size of rigid tubing to another (e.g. 12mm to 14mm). Fill me up Johnny After successfully refilling the reservoir with enough coolant, do not connect the power supply to the motherboard and graphics card just yet. Plug the pump alone to the 4-pin Molex connector of the power supply, and then use a 24-pin adapter to perform a jump start allowing the pump to distribute the coolant around the water cooling system. The first time you switch the power supply on, you’ll notice that the liquid starts to circulate between the parts of the water cooling system leaving the reservoir empty. Once this happens, turn the power supply off to prevent the pump from getting damaged. You then have to fill the reservoir again to its maximum capacity, then repeat the process of turning it on and off until there’s enough water circulating in between parts. PSU Jumper connected to the 24 pin cable of the power supply. (Make sure that you power supply is not plugged in a wall socket or extension cord) If you don’t have the jumper thingy you can use a piece of wire, hair clip or even a stripped twist tie; insert one end to the slot of the green wire and the other end in the slot where there is a black wire, The black and green wire should be on the same row of pins. It is hard to miss the green wire as there is only one of it. In the case that all wires on you 24 pin are black then you can take a good look at the image below to determine where the green wire is, normally with the clip of the 24 pin faced up start counting at the top row it is the 4th slot from the left then the other end of your clip could go on the 6th. Bleeding Edge Air bubbles will be present in the tubes, water blocks, and reservoir the first time you fill and run the system. Stay calm as they will eventually disappear if you let the pump run for a few hours or sometimes a whole day. This process is often called “bleeding”. All of the above may seem daunting but getting well informed is the key to a positive experience. At the end of the day you just have to pick up all the tools and start doing it “experience is key” to every water cooling endeavor in the world of custom built computers.
