This build was to replace my aging asus gaming laptop which couldnt be upgraded and i had no use for the benifits of its mobility anymore. Decided to go all out and spend a fuckton on creating a masterpiece.

i completed this build at the start of november when i finally recieved my case. originally it was meant to be a lian li 011 razer edition but i couldnt wait and resist the mark down price of the Air (its still not out).

The build took me 2 days to complete as its my first. Alot of trial and error went into the tubing. This was because the waterboard didnt line up correctly with the CPU ports as i thought. the case is slightly different to the original and a few modifications to the screwholes and alignment of the waterboard had to be made. i burned my hands tring to get the custom bends in on the tubes to make them line up.

i forgot to purchase a fan controller so theres alot of fan wires in the motherboard and the wiring could be alot tidier. overall there is 3 different rgb systems at play. asus aura on the motherboard/gpu/power cables. barrow controls on the cpu/waterboard/pump. corsair on the fans/ram. Now its build though i couldnt give a **** about the cable management.

Lian li 24pin power cable doesnt work and i still need to get in touch with them.

Still need a monitor. waiting on the PG35VQ. i will wait for that unlike the case.

I'm a little lost for words, so I'm going to sum my feelings up into two words; God Damn!

Out of curiosity, is there anything that you wish you could change if you could do it all over again?

dannywa212 submitter 1 Build 2 points 2 months ago

id get the O11 dynamic as the waterboard would line up better in it than the air.

Are those RGB cables?

studdenfadden 1 point 2 months ago

Yup, Strimer by Lian Li cables in 24 pin and 8 pin variety. I have the same ones, they look great and have lots of options.

They are expensive for cables (I paid $59.99 for the 24 pin and 39 for the 8 pin on amazon.) but I feel they are worth it.

Giggity! That's hot!

I did my first custom loop in August. So expensive... but I'd do it again!

Looks awesome!

laserlion 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

So, I agree with you that the wiring could be tidier, but as it stands it's not bad! The build looks overwhelmingly awesome.

It truly is a dream build.

Hey Danny, I am really interested in your build and have been trying to find the correct tubing/res/arc block... I built my last computer 8 years ago. A little rusty, would appreciate the help!

Beast of a PC man! Why that ugly FE card?

DaveGreen 1 point 2 months ago

It's watercooled, it doesn't have the original cooler.
