Description

Just want to say that this has been one hell of a journey for my very first water cooled build. 3 motherboards and 3 graphic cards has been in and out of this case but I can finally say that I'm done.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I haven't overclocked yet (just got done building and filling) but here are the temps;

Idle: CPU - 22 GPU - 30

Load: CPU - 33 GPU - 36

UPDATE 10.17.16

Redid a few runs because I wasn't happy with what I did at first so I uploaded more pictures of what runs I redid.

Did I just hear a pc builder say that they are done? Never have I ever... Looks cool +1

how come one tube didn't have water in it all the way

  • 38 months ago

It only looks like that because of the lighting. All of the tubes have water in it.

Wow, those are some pretty good looking temps there. You could say your pc is pretty "cool" looking. B) Bad jokes aside, love the color scheme and water cooling setup you have. You got my vote. +1

Beautiful! Are that temps too cool for single rad? not to mention single liquid-way for cooling both CPU and GPU? How could that be?

I dont follow your confusion ...

This builds uses single rad system to cool both CPU and GPU right? And he got not even 40C in load. Its somehow too cool imo

Could have pump & fans running higher speeds, could be luck of the draw on silicone lottery etc. Its not unheard of but its not completely the norm either.

RhettRO55 is correct. I do have the fans and pump running at 100%. I don't really know how to prove the temps under load.

  • 38 months ago

It's a single 360 rad. I do have the fans and the pump running at 100%. I'm going to turn the fans down to see how it affects the temps.

Primo chill tubing is just oh so nice. I'm about to pick up some of the UV Reactive pink hardline tubing for anow upcoming Christmas build

Overkill, better then underkill. Those cables give a very peculiar look, not one I'd use myself, but unique.

Nice build, interesting to see blue in an otherwise white and red colour combination. +1 :)

Can I ask what's up with the U-turn on the GPU/CPU connecting line? I like it, I just don't understand it.

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

I really didn't want to do that run like that but because the outlet of the cpu block didn't line up with the gpu block, I decided to do that. Please if you have any suggestions let me know. I'm planning on fixing some runs but I have no ideas of what to do with that run.

  • 38 months ago
  • 2 points

I bet you could knock out like 3 or 4 of those 90 degree turns with a single 30, or maybe 45. The two blocks are maybe what 3/4 inch apart? The fittings would still be kinda butted up against each other, but it could still clean it up a little. But if you're getting good flow, I wouldn't worry about it. I was just curious more than anything.

  • 38 months ago

I might actually look into getting different angled fittings to see if it lines up (also want to make a change to the gpu to res run). As far as the flow, it's great! All of the air bubbles are out of the cpu and gpu blocks and the temps are great. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll let you know if it works out or not. Hopefully they make just female 35 or 45 fittings.

female? you're not planning on doing an angle bracket with two fittings on either end are you? There's a simpler solution, something like these. They've got the fitting built right in.

I'm using primochill tubing and it won't fit with bitspower fitting unfortunately so its either a female to female fitting or a female to g1/4 thread fitting that I can use.

If a beginning builder like my self who is afraid to watercool can ask, how hard is it to do so? I almost don't even know where to start...

  • 38 months ago

I was in your shoes as well. This is my first water cooled pc and it took me weeks of research to make sure that the tubing was compatible with fittings, having the more than enough fittings, etc. Once I did the research, the only thing that was hard is spending the money on buying all the parts. I mainly learned a lot from JayzTwoCents and the Australian guy from GGF (both on youtube). Their content are very detailed and helpful.

So to answer your question, it's not that difficult. You can save a ton of money by bending tubes (which will make it more difficult) which will reduce the amount of fittings you need to buy.

If you ever need help/have any questions, shoot me a message! I'd love to share what I learned through all this. I will eventually start bending tubes.

I really appreciate that. I'll watch some of their content tonight and see what I can learn. Enjoy your awesome build!

Here is the link to the second guy. He did a tutorial for a different channel.

How long ago did you get your 1080 FTW? Any issues with it?

  • 38 months ago
  • 1 point

No issues with it thus far. I had it for ~2 weeks. This was my second one though. The first one I had kept artifacting after I exited games. Other than that, it's been great.

Cool thanks. I'm looking to get one. The first batches have been plagued with a black screen issue where the card stops working and you get a black screen and fans go to 100%. I want to know when I get mine if it was made before the issue was fixed. Do you mind telling me the serial number of your new, fully functioning 1080?

Did your 6800k work with the GA-X99 out of the box, or did you have to update the bios?

  • 37 months ago

Worked right out of the box. I only did a bios update because the pci express lanes led wouldn't light up. To be honest, the GA-X99 is a good mobo but the mouse cursor is annoyingly slow.
