Water-cooled Gaming PC Ryzen 1700X GTX 1080 Core P1 Mini-ITX

CPU Clock Rate

3.4 GHz


Without the peripherals and just for what went into the mini-ITX it cost me about 2250 USD.

Built a silky smooth high-end RGB computer. If you are going to have a high end build it better look high end am I right? This is my first build ever and I am super proud of what I have accomplished. Many of these parts were painstakingly used to create what I believe is one of the most beautiful RGB full water cooling loop ever.

The RGB lighting has many different features and can perform many types of RGB lighting patterns and colors. The 1080 is a 10 year anniversary ArticStorm by Zotac. I am enjoying the new RGB keyboard that I got. Never had a mechanical keyboard before and its an awesome experience. Will use this game for school and playing overwatch. Can't believe I built correctly the first time.

The computer stays super cool. I am overclocking the CPU to 3.8ghz and maintains 32C and 55C when under a stress test.

Those rgb fittings are pretty intense huh!! Nice and bright! I'd love to see a picture with the lights on +1

Nice build, but how do you not get blinded by those RGB water cooling fittings? Those things make your custom loop look like a neon sign, lol. Very clean, and very bright! +1

I turn it down when I am doing stuff. Just showing off how bright I could get the RGB.

Brooklyn_T0n198 3 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Lol, I would too. RGB is nice, but sometimes...

"Hey, they are over here! I am pinned down over here!"

me staring at my RGB keyboard as I toggle it into rainbow overload mode

"Hey! Where are you!?!"

still staring at keyboard "Huh?-" enemy shoots me in the head

"Great, Brooklyn. Just brilliant..."

I'd love to build an actual "neon sign" with those fittings and long tubes. That would be epic.

Brooklyn_T0n198 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

That would be awesome. Something to build inside a full tower ATX case...

I really like these fittings as an alternative to UV lighting. They look great, nice build.

Does the asrock led software work with the trident?

Nameleiz submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

No I just ended up using the trident software. Need trident software for the ram, asrock for the tubing, cooler master for the cpu cooler cap, and firestorm for the 1080 arcticstorm.

So do you use different controllers? I have the same mother board. My build isn’t complete yet and this is my first build. I wanted to sync all the rgb fans. I was thinking about going with the cooler master ML240L and 2 more cooler master rbg fans. I was just worried about the wiring because I won’t have enough led headers. Would you recommend the cooler master controller or should I just use splitters?

Nameleiz submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Yea I am not too familiar with how some people get all thier RGB synced. I just use different softwares to control the RGB and kinda play with the intervals to match my desired lighting patterns... New to this too actually.
