Description

 So this is my first attempt at a custom watercooling loop. Everything has worked out great so far other than the crazy feeling you get pouring coolant into an electrical box! Really though its not as had as you think, so if you are on the fence on watercooling give it a try. Not only is it an awesome way to customize your case and build, its also badass looking and performs better!

Cheers

Very nice! Just a question about the case in this particular use, these cases utilize the airflow of the gpu to exhaust easier hence why it's upside down, but if you're waterblocking the gpu why go with this case?

I just felt that I wanted to do something a little different, which is why I chose the inverse case.

I was just curious. Definitely nothing wrong with going with what you like!

Looks nice for your first try. Probably should have went for a different case though

Thanks, I thought about a different case when I first got everything in there, but its definitely growing on me.

You're lucky you got one of the last Antec High Current Pro Platinum PSUs. Antec stopped making these PSUs and the only stock right now is surplus, so once it's sold out, it's gone forever. Save that PSU for your future builds, it's a solid one that will last that 7 year warranty period.

Have you attempted any Overclocking, if so what are your results?

I have only oc'd the proc to 4ghz, but ended up backing it off due to crazy hot temps in my area. I have a temperature challenged room where my computer resides. So until I can get that under control I'm going to run it at stock for the short term future.

Really nice build! Out of curiosity, what speed have you gotten your ram to?

Thanks! I have not really messed around with the memory oc yet. But hope to get it running at 3200 soon. The temps in my computer room are pretty hot during the summer so ill probably wait until the fall to start messing around with all that to avoid any heat related problems. Without any Overclock the current setup is hitting the high 140 fps in pubg mostly high settings with a few at medium, but still would like to see what I can get out of it power wise.

Thanks for the reply! Is it 140 fps with 1080p or 1440p resolution, though?

  • 30 months ago

Yeah for sure, its at 1080p right now, debating between a 1440 or a 240hz 1080 monitor upgrade. Ill post a reply on which way I decide and what the fps numbers are when it happens.

Do it on the next build that way it gives you reasoning to make another computer ;)

I mean do you really need a reason to build another computer? haha

If you have a significant other there is definitly a reason needed

What do people find attractive about those backwards Corsair cases...

Was just looking for something different from the average stock set up of normal case. That is all...
