Description

It is currently a work in progress. I am in the middle of ordering custom loop watercooling parts. As soon as they arrive i will be taking it apart and adding those in, which will consist of gpu, cpu, and mobo. Before I add in the watercooling I will be painting the Thermal Armor on the board to a white colour. After that im going to be attaching the watercooling and putting a pastel green fluid in. Im trying to stick with green and white color scheme but i want the computer parts to be white and the watercooling parts to be green. Its mainly used for gaming and I know that its overkill, but I just graduated school and I wanted to make a nice gift for myself. I will be adding more pictures as the build continues and I will add the watercooling parts to the list once it is complete. Sorry for the bad pictures, i dont own a camera so i have to use my phone

Edit: finally got around to painting the thermal armor. the watercooling parts are still being ordered so more updates will come as i receive them.

Edit: water cooling parts have arrived, will take pictures and upload in the next few days.

Edit: had some issues, no longer able to use the NZXT H440, it was just too small to fit my res/pump combo in it. Also, ignore the makeshift sli and chipset configuration, my bridge was too short so i had to do this until my new bridge comes in. Am currently running it with distilled water with a cleaner in it to clean out the oils and debris from the parts. when flushing is done i will be putting in the EK Lime green fluid. Also, on the order list no wis some UV LED strips. and i think i am going to add a 2nd loop instead of having everything run off of one loop now.

Edit: Just a heads up to anyone looking at these waterblocks for these cards, they are meant for the reference design, the MSI twinfrozr is not reference. i had to bend connectors and cut plastic for the power light for the light strips to work. and the fit with the power connectors for the 8and6pin are squished a bit. also had to file down the IO port shield so the the block would sit flush on the card.

Are your parents funding this? I'm not here to insult here, I am just curious.

That's actually really impressive. In some cases I have 11 year old kids that have spent over $4000 on PCs, but I am happy that someone is actually using their own hard owned money.

yea, I worked all through school even though i did not have to. I have Canadian Native Indian Status so all of my schooling is paid for by them. even with that i still worked 30-40 hours a week on top of being a student to afford the luxuries that i wanted.

This is a really powerful build that will last your an extremely long time. +1 for that. And congratulations on finishing school! I'd say this is one of the best gifts one could receive. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

not too much longer until im finished with it. i may be swapping out my cards for 2 titan blacks when i decide to add in the 2nd loop and add the 780Ti's to my girlfriends computer.

I would actually recommend sticking with the 780 Ti's. They give you better performance for gaming. But Titan Blacks are still powerful as hell. Either way you'll be running games on Ultra easily.

the only reason why im thinking of going with the titan black is due to VRAM, a lot of newer games are getting close to that 3gb VRAM cap so i want some extra space for futureproofing.

your build is nice, very clean in the inside. one thing i am not happy with is the tubing, when i make the switch to 2 loops im going to be doing acrylic so it looks a lot neater, right now its horrid, TOO much tubing

thx man yea i got everything minus the extra fans mouse and stuff for 760$ i wish i could do a more expensive build like urs i really wanna throw my stupid cpu cooler away and get a corsair hydro one but no money for one

DO NOT use colored coolant. You will get better performance with distilled water + PTnuke or killcoil with green tubing. Plus it won't gunk up your blocks

what in the fudge... Where do you fit all those fans?

well, i used the bitfenix and corsair 140's until i did my watercooling loop, now ive replaced most of them with the quiet static pressure fans for water cooling. some are still in there just so i can have push/pull on my rads.
