I use this beast for primarily gaming and bitcoin mining.

Sir, I would like to congratulate you on Such a wonderful looking build! But Bitcoin mining... almost lost me there...

Thanks! I built it primarily for gaming, but I just mine bitcoin while I'm idle or sleeping.

Do you have UV lighting or is it naturally that bright?

No UV lighting here, whenever my HUE+ cycles to blue it lights up really bright and makes the liquid look opaque.

Awesome. I'm about to build a system with the same fluid, but ordered and UV light and have blue LED fans, so sounds like I'm in for a treat haha.

I don't care. It looks cool

I agree, which is why I'm curious. I just ordered part for my own build, including the same EK fluid.

No UV, just EK CryoFuel and a HUE+!

Is that soft tubing?

Indeed

Is the water loop soft tubing? You could have used hard tubing and made the build look cleaner/neater with straighter curves, etc.

Yeah it's soft tubing, since it was my first build. I plan on re-doing some of the runs because they way I have it set up currently, all the heat from the GPUs are going straight to the CPU which causes a small increase in CPU temps.

For a first build, this looks seriously legit dude. By the way, two GTX 1080s is epic! XD

Hard tubing can be more aesthetically pleasing but also adds more time and cost into your build since its harder to work with. My build also uses soft tubing and so has every build I have made for my clients.

Nice build! Well done!

I love that you cut the soft tubing short from the pump to the GPU and from the GPU to the CPU. It looks firm like a hard tubing would with a nice arch. :)

Have you overclocked it at all?

I was wondering how much one could overclock with such a setup where "warm" water comes from the GPU to cool the CPU.

I've got the Fractal Design Define R5 case and I'm considering a similar setup. Except, I'd get a 360 radiator on top and most probably a 140 mm fan for the rear (not 120, like you did). I'd go for a 140 mm radiator for the rear, but I suppose it wouldn't fit with a 360 mm rad on top. :(

I don't think there would be enough room to fit a third card, and even if there was it's not supported by Nvidia with their 10 series cards.

so um, how would you do a custom watercooled build? including white hard tubing? lol doesn't matter if you don't know, I'll find out somehow!
