Description

This is my Titan Hydrocopper build. I built while I was in between parts. This is the build I used while I was off making everyone else's machine look good and didn't have a chance to fix up my own. Time is money, friend!

are these pictures before or after "bleeding" the air from the loop?...I see waaay to much air in the tubes

That is the highest point of the loop.

I didn't realize the 220-X supports that orientation. Nice build!

  • 61 months ago

The only one it doesn't support is when the pump is upside down. Other than that, all other angles work.

I didn't realize you could cool both a processor and graphics card with a 220-X either... seems like temps are in line though.

Not that it would make a huge difference as everything is watercooled, but wouldn't it make more sense to have the radiator fans pulling air through the radiator and pushing it out of the case while the 140mm is pulling cool air in? So cool air goes across the motherboard, through the radiator, heats up and then is immediately exhausted out the side.

Right now it looks like the radiators are pulling cold air from outside and then pushing the warm air from the radiators into the case, and the 140 is pulling more (cool) air in, but nothing is exhausting so it's relying on the 80x160 grille at the back.

If you look up positive pressure and why it's better to have it, you'll understand. When I tore this sytem down, all the dust was in the dust filters on both of the intakes. Only the smallest particles actually ever made it into the case and those were the easiest to blow out.

  • 61 months ago

That's how I would expect dust filters to work, regardless of pressure.

  • 61 months ago

No no- positive pressure prevents dust from entering non-filtered crevices and holes. If you had more exhausts than intakes, you then have negative pressure and it sucks dust from unfiltered portions of the case, thus more dust build up.

That's scary to me for you to have a titan and a 4790k on the same 240mm rad. XD

Not really, check the temps.

Dang, only a 500mhz overclock and you're already at 65C with that absolutely awesome cooler?

small builds are hard to work with, and that CPU runs freaking hot. good job though!

super awesome build! wish I had the money for something like this, not to mention the planning and time required. anyways, good job and +1 from me

nice build. When I was choosing my spec i really wanted to get this cooler but just couldn't get hold of it or it was way overpriced. Can I asked how much you paid and where you got it from? I may sell on my coolers and move to it as I think it looks awesome.

I purchased this from someone who sold it after a month of use. I got lucky @ $100! You can find it on their Store Page.

How do you like that PSU?

  • 59 months ago

This PSU is pretty good! No issues and quite solid.

So, did you replace the screws on the CPU Power Daughter card heat sinks with longer screws to mount it to the case? Or do you only need to use the two free mounting holes?

  • 59 months ago
  • 1 point

I did not replace any screws. The board installed normally.

Did you have to replace the fans for the Swiftech H220-X? Or would the stock ones fit perfectly with the Maximus Impact?

  • 58 months ago
  • 2 points

Yes, the stock fans fit perfectly with the Impact. You can still replace them if you'd like.

Awesome! Thanks for the info. Lets just say I may be replicating this build :D

What fittings and tubing did you use for this build? I love the look of this, very clean!

  • 54 months ago
  • 1 point

I will have the same mobo, cooler, cpu, and case, so this is EXACTLY the proof I needed! Thank you so much, this is one of the only definitive "yes's" on the web for Maximus VII Impact+250D+H220-X!

Glad I was able to help someone out. I always hated the fact that I want to test out a new style of build, only to NOT find any pictures of it. I strive to always do builds that people wouldn't think of.

  • 54 months ago

Yeah! It's so hard to find this specific combination, which you would think would be a little more common. I think I'll do what you did but add some 80mm Noctuas to the back for exhaust. One question, how quiet is/was the rad? I'm thinking of putting on some Corsair Quiet PWM SP120's, but would it be any quieter?

Hi! That's a wonderful watercooling setup you have there, was looking to do something similar in the Lian Li PC-O5S. Quick question: What did you fill the loop with, and where did you get your fittings? I'm looking to remove the Apogee XL block and replace it with a different one, as well as add a ZOTAC 980Ti ArcticStorm to the loop.

How are the temps Load and Idle while overclocked? (if you have overclocked)

Lavis, your builds are just OP man!

I'm set on using the 250D and very new to building a PC(it's been 12 years now since the last one) and I'm curious about the Noctua NU-UH12 will work? the compatibility checks but would like to hear your pro answer! The proc will be a i5-6600k and will get OCed.

Thank you!

Yeah man, it'll work! However, for an easier time building, I'd highly recommend a CLC in this case. Air coolers are a bit of a bother to throw into this case and you already have to worry about the cooler height.

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

CLC as in Corsair liquid cooling? like the 100Hi I've seen commonly used?

I also found a smaller one NH-L9i that will do the work, I've read that 100hi is very noisy and dont' want to bother the family with excessive noise while gaming late at night, specially my daughter.

Thank you!

  • 51 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes, the NH-L9i will most certainly fit! You'll just have to be weary of fitment issues. It changes with different motherboards. With how small this thing is, it shouldn't be a problem for you. Happy building and make sure to send me pictures of your finished build! :)

did that swifttech come with both a cooler for the cpu and gpu or what?

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

The Swiftech H220-X only comes with the CPU block, radiator and pump. The Titan is a Hydrocopper. PCPP doesn't list it any longer so I just used a stock Titan.

This is why I built this machine! To prove that you can!

This loop has been torn down but the bubbles were never an issue. Low 40s idle and low 60s load on both.
