Description

Im 20 years old and have been building computers since I was 14. I have had many build refreshes but just haven't updated PC part picker in a while. The water loop is all from the Fluid Gaming aluminum line. I couldn't shell out all that money for copper. Also yes I know the 9900k is just completely unnecessary but that's what I like doing. I figured if I got this and 32gb of ram I wouldn't need to change out those parts for awhile. Also in college im probably going to be video editing a bit for school. So here it is. Enjoy. Please comment any questions and I will try to reply as quickly as I can.

strange cpu + gpu config

How so? Theres builds here with a 9900k with no GPU at all.

I see your point in the 1070 being weak for a 9900k. But maybe he just doesn't do things that need a ton of graphical power.

I had this 1070 paired with a i7 6700k. Then I got a z390 board and never realized that it didn't support the 6 series. That's how I ended up with an i9

Hi sorry the very late response. I do a bit off video editing so it was nice to have the i9. Also if I just get the i9 now I wont have to upgrade it for a very long time. So now I can just keep upgrading my GPU without having to worry about anything else. Also if I returned the mobo I would have to return the case I bought as well. I got the 280x but never used it

This looks way more expensive than it really was... dang.

It is actually more expensive than what it says on here. The builder did not include the price for the CPU or the GPU water block. Did not include the price for the tubing, fittings, reservoir, water pump, fluid for the system (needs special fluid). Basically i would say he is missing at least $200+ worth of stuff, probably more if I am going to be completely honest. He also forgot like the 6 or 7 fans for the radiators that I am almost positive did not come with the pc case.

I know, at a glance the thumbnail looked like a #$5,000 pc. Ek fluid gaming with a gpu block and an extra rad costs about $300 and each of those fans costs about $10, so you can add $370.

I didn't include all the parts. It was probably more like $2300

Where did you get your fittings and connectors for your aluminum loop? I"m in got a aluminum loop and have been looking for some t connectors and ball valve for a draining system in my loop and having a hard time.

EK Fluid Gaming (https://www.ekfluidgaming.com/parts/) has a bunch of parts.

I got them from the EK fluid gaming parts section. You can find a lot of cool stuff for the aluminum loop there.

90° C CPU temp under load seems high. Is that normal?

Edit: I just read Der8auer saw similar results when he first tested the chip with a 360 AIO. I knew it gets hot, but didn't expect that.

I think 90 degrees is actually a typo, unless he is severely overclocking that 9900k under liquid. My 9900k only gets to like 62 degrees at max when gaming. And I am only using a dark rock pro 4

Maybe a really intensive CPU benchmark?

I havent tried one yet, but i cant imagine that my i9 will go up another 30 degrees using prime95 or something like that.

It's a HOT CPU. shame really

You have the inlet and outlet the wrong way round on your CPU block, this wont help temps as the flow will be going the opposite way to the jet plate.

The inlet has an arrow pointing towards the fitting and the outlet has an arrow pointing away from the fitting.

If you don't want the look of your tubing crossing over then I would suggest rotating the CPU block 180 degrees.

Impressive build! We have similar specs https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Big_Daddy_Black/saved/g9cLJx Curious to know what you have in water cooling as that's my next upgrade after the RTX card (:

Awesome! I have an all aluminum loop. You can find parts for it at EK's fluid gaming website. I have 2 360 rads. Little overkill but I don't mind lol. The aluminum loop is cheaper than a copper loop but do not use copper parts mixed in with the aluminum loop. You can only use the parts directly from the Fluid Gaming website
