Description

This is my first attempt at computer modding and water cooling. Overall I think it came out okay. Apparently they do not have my SSDs on their parts list but there are 2 240GB Intel pro 1500 and 1 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 in raid 0 as well. It is primarily used for gaming but I may be getting into some video editing as well. Please be gentle first time attempting to mod.

Beyond cool, I really like it. I have the 1080 Armor in my girlfriend's build with no backplate on it. Any recommendations?

V1 tech or EK backplates.

I got pretty decent at making back plates for the GPU. I just use .093 in sheets of acrylic, cut them down to size paint the back what I want he color to show through in my design and use a sticker on the top and paint the top the base cover. Here is one of the modders I learned from. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbfq2UFD8Cs&t=492s

If modding isn't your thing the best place I have found to buy back plates and other custom pc products is http://www.v1tech.com

The triple intakes look completely bomb. Great first mod! Love what you did with that case, it has always been a favorite of mine. +1

Made some additional mods to the build nothing major. Added a custom sli bridge cover with the flash logo and painted the outside trim red. I think that makes it pop a little more with the chrome paint job.

Nice build! Can you please tell me any good tutorial for hardline toobing? I want to build my first pc with custom badass watercooling and I really don’t want to mess up.

I get the dual GPU for water cooling, but why did you get 2 1070's when you could have gotten a single 1080 or 1080 Ti? on another note, why'd you use two normal SLI bridges and not a high-bandwidth sli bridge?

I already had a 1070 before I considered doing any of this and I was able to get the 2nd one cheap from a friend. My high-bandwidth sli bridge is ordered and will be here Thursday. Just forgot about it when ordering parts and used what I already had until it gets here.

Why do not you have to separate the graphics card from the processor for cooling you have two radiators then why

  • 29 months ago

I guess I am not sure what you are asking? Do you mean why don't I have two separate loops going?

  • 29 months ago

Look at my PC you see the graphics card heading towards a radiator and not directly into the processor there are separate

Ahh I get what you are saying. It was the easiest path to set up for the loop. It also doesn't really affect temps having it going from the gpu to the cpu. The temp of the liquid is pretty consistent throughout the entire loop maybe a variance of 1 to 2 degrees.

That's why I asked you why two radiators you do not have separation between the graphics card and the processor you still have a good system to cool :-)

You're making no sense.

If he has two RADs, he's using that setup for colder water. This is in many builds.

@Jariyah he's asking why there's two radiators. Correct me if my explanation above is wrong.

:D

EDIT: Now that I look back at the pictures, there aren't two RADs. The fans on the front of the case are simply case fans. The only radiator is on top.

Looks like there's two radiators to me; look at the first picture again, you can see the tubing going into the fittings and into the front radiator.

There are two radiators. One 360mm at the top and one 360mm in the front but you are correct that is for more surface area for cooling the water.

Ah, thanks for the explanation. :)

Typically you want to have 120mm for each component you are cooling so I only needed a 360mm radiator for it but I wanted to overclock the cpu and gpus so I opted to get a 2nd radiator.for better cooling.
