5 months ago I was still using my 970 strix, 3770k, noctua's in my old corsair obsidian 750D. The first picture is the completed build, and the others are a sort of timeline for the upgrades I made.

My friend put a bug in my ear about wanting a new GPU and that set me down the path. Initially I just planned on upgrading to a 1080ti, and purchased a used SC2. After putting the 1080ti onto my old 3770k, I realized it may be time to replace the old beauty and move onto something more modern. One thing led to another, I realized I wanted to try a custom loop, swapped my SC2 for a FE 1080ti, picked up a bunch of secondhand waterloop parts, as well as some new ones and here we are. I'm super happy with how it turned out and I love looking at it.

I've got pics of before I got the TridentZ, and I just picked up a secondhand EK backplate for my GPU so more updates to come.

Thanks for checking it out!

Dude... that looks amazing!

Are you running 1x 360 rad or 2? And the bends look hella clean!

Thanks man!

1x 360 for now. Not sure if I'll put a 2nd in, seeing as my 8700k never gets over 70c even with a heavy overclock (1.38v 5ghz) and my 1080ti never goes over 55. Seems a bit overkill, but it could be a fun new project in the future to try and fit a 2nd one on the side.

I have a 360mm and a 280mm rad in mine and I am right about where you are. With the extra radiators, I do run my fans as low as they will go though. Good stuff!

Can you share your OC settings for your build? I am looking at the Gigabyte Aorus Ultra and the bios is confusing, and guides are confusing.
