Description

My original build had the GPU burn out, which gave me the perfect excuse to do a full upgrade. Been looking at water cooling for a long time and decided now was the moment do do it. Was going with a white and blue color scheme, which reflected my part choices. I ordered all the parts one at a time when i got the money for them. Finally got them all around November 1st, but i broke my arm 2 weeks before, so i had to delay the build, as my left arm was in a cast. A few days after i got out of my cast i started on the build. Did some spray painting on the motherboard armor and the radiators so they could match my colors. All the tubing was bent free hand, didn't have any forms for them. I have some LEDs coming in within the next few days to give my case some good lighting, other than that the build is fully finished. Let me know what you guys think :D Running ASUS aura sync on the system, but having a bit of difficulty with the RAM syncing, so for now its stuck at the pulsing rainbow.

Sorry for the picture quality, my phone camera is kinda ****.

Just a question, was it scary putting liquid in your pc. I personally can't handle it at all.

Not really, i spent tons of hours researching how to do a good loop. I've worked at a carpentry shop for a while, so i have some confidence in constructing things to the proper sizes, so measuring the tubing wasn't that bad. Plus when you leak test a loop only thing turned on is the pump, so if any water were to leak it wouldn't short the system.

The build looks nice. However, I feel like with this setup you could have achieved a real overclocking, not just running the CPU at the Turbo Frequency all the time. Go ahead, and tweak it a little (5.0 GHz + is the minimum. :D)

He might have lost the silicon lottery and won't be able to hit 5.0GHz. Cooling shouldn't be a problem though.

I plan on doing so, just finished installing windows and drivers on it, so it is going to be a little while before its fully up and running.

I didn't need a large m.2 ssd for boot up, so went with the 250gb. The SSD's i got at 250 each as i was planning on mounting them in one of the display windows. The case had 2 SSD mounting brackets on the optical drive panel, and i was going to get cover blocks for them that matched the GPU back plate. Sadly that did not pan out, as i didn't have enough room for the pump and tubing with the optical drive panel there, and i ran out of time to return them for a 500gb SSD.

I will be moving from this house in less than a year, and am leaving behind the furniture, so an investment in a desk doesn't make much sense right now. Case wise this was the only one that i like the aesthetic of which also matched my color scheme, plus it shows the cool bends i made pretty well.
