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!
