Description

This is my build for video editing, And it's also my first time hard tube build. I think XSPC's radiator and reservior is the key components of this build. EX280 radiator's G1/4″ Ports are very wide, So you can use less fitting. D5 Photon170 V2's mount is on the right side, So 80mm big glass reservior is eccentric, Won't interference the video card. Here is the full list of water cooling components.

I also record a video of filling the loop, Here's the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH_w3TUcuno&t=7s

CPU Block: Aquacomputer cuplex kryos NEXT

GPU Block:EK-FC1080 GTX TF6

Reservior with Pump: XSPC D5 Photon170 V2

Radiator: XSPC EX280

Filter: Aquacomputer

Fitting: Barrow

Tubing: Barrow 14mm PETG

Coolant: PrimoChill True Zeal

Another beautiful Shift-X Build! +1 I have to say --I have to say-- these shift-x builds look sooooo incredible. I've never seen someone pull a half-a** job on one of these. Give yourself a nice pat on the back sam, because you killed it! I made a build somewhat similar to yours in the aspects of power, storage, and performance. I built my current pc with a 1060, 1tb hdd, air cooling (just for the cpu), and 16gb 3200 ram. I love how you pulled off the same sort of somewhat budgeted build with medium/high tier parts that will altogether last you a long time and perform exceedingly well. I notice the i7 you put into this build and really like how you evened out the overkill aspects to you rig. The components are something that's top notch, but not mainstream overkill like 2 1080's and 64gb ram. Your loop looks beautiful, the color of the liquid finishes off the build with a cherry on top! Overall, I have to say that this build has most certainly had some thought put into it and proudly deserves some +1's. Nice job!

Feature?

I’m calling a feature. I get so jealous when I see builds like yours. I have never built a pc before, but I am going to start my first ever build in a week. I lack the experience and funds to do what you have done, but I really wish I could do something similar. I can’t wait to build my first ever computer, and I can’t wait to start building them regularly (I hope). These builds give me motivation and get me way too excited for my first ever build. Awesome job man. Can’t wait to experience something like this.

Good looking build! I gave lots of thought to that coolant for my build. I'm interested in your long term thoughts on the PrimoChill Vue. The fill video is a nice touch to your write up! I'm also intrigued with the Auqucomputer filter.

How is the filter attached to the case, is it on the bracket that came with the Shift X? Can you check/change the filter easily?

  • 15 months ago
  • 1 point

The filter was attached to pump stand (Which come with the case). Unfortunately, I can only remove or clean the filter, when the loop is empty. This filter have two ball valve, If you make a hole on the case, You can clean the filter very easy.

First, sweet build, I love mini builds. Second, how do you get your build featured? I would love if my build I just put up would get featured, but I dont know how to do it, or show it to whoever chooses. Do you have to do anything?

  • 15 months ago

For this build, I focused on custom loop design. I want to fill the case's bottom half with more components.

very nice but why you decide to put a unclockable cpu with a build like that?

  • 15 months ago

8700 is enough for me, And I don't want to overclocking. Last time I overclock was a Celeron 320D.

Hi there, I love your build - I'm planning something very similar in the same case. I've never done liquid cooling before but really wanted to give it a shot this time. Can you tell me what your temps are with only 1 240mm rad? Is there room for another like 120 rad on the bottom? I will probably OC as I'm looking at a different CPU and GPU than you used.

Also how many fittings did you need to get? I'm worried I'll order too many and waste money, or not enough and end up waiting on more to ship. Cheers!

Good day! Please tell me about temperature your system (CPU, PCH and graphics card) and RPM fan under stress? i create same system and i need information about effective watercooling. Very grateful for help!

Very solid build. I know that I am a bit late to the party. Just a suggestion, you may want to go with an overclockable CPU because you are cooling it so well. If you werent going to go with an unlocked chip you may have wanted to go with a H series motherboard.

Otherwise super sexy and well built PC. :)

This is good and all but seriously if you hadn't spent that much on a custom loop you could have gotten a MUCH more beastly PC for video editing. I guess people nowadays are going looks over performance though. I suspect I'll be downvoted to hell now because I prefer performance to aesthetics.

For me, An beautiful loop is better than 8700K + 1080Ti

  • 15 months ago

So you like aesthetics over actual performance which would have stomped on your PC and made your life so much easier?

You could have gotten a better build which in turn would help made your life much easier and more futureproof along with preventing leaks and whatnot too.

Well... this is the wrong site to complain about aesthetics on... and he's not going to have editing problems with an i7-8700 and 16GB of RAM, so might as well have it look nice and stay cool while he's using it. Looks like it was a challenge to get all that in there and make it work and look nice as well.

just depends on the file size and the programs used, this seems like more than enough for anything that isn't massive files and top-tier programs

He's not going to have problems, but that doesn't mean it's optimal. He sacrificed extreme fluidity for appearance.

  • 15 months ago

No, the bling doesn't make it run faster (and I'm not one for watercooling critical systems) but I'm not the one looking at the system every day either. (Okay, so I like how he got the custom loop in that case. I would have liked to see the runs a little more direct, but that's just me.) Anyone can build a boring old beige box that's perfectly functional, post it and call it a day; it'll still be a boring beige (or black for that matter) box no one will ever get excited about.
