Description

Switched my case to this beautiful Lian Li case from a Pahnteks Evo Evolve. that loop had a 240mm rad and a 360mm rad but I wanted a longer fuller loop to really show off these parts and bends. I blogged everyday of the 4 day process and its now been successfully running for a week and wanted to show it off in a completed build guide.

Day 1. Case sold. 240mm sold. Everything comes in the morning. New case. 2nd 360mm rad. Loop fittings, 360mm rad and all components cleaned and ready. Bent one of the USB pins on the mobo. Easy fix but alittle anxiety there. Other than that. After work tomorrow everything begins.

Day 2. Exhausted. Everythings in. Love the new case. Lian Li pc011 ROG. Everything's in. Well besides the GPU cables butim getting to that. Just need to finish the loop, paint over the phanteks logo and wireless card hestsync and work on the drain abit more. Too tired to continue...been up since 7 and spent around 5 hours on it after work. Better to stop and finish up tomorrow. Hopefully post the completion and leak test tomorrow.

Day 3. Pt 1. Spent about 5 hours bending. Good as I'm gonna get it.

No leaks! Got the rgb strips in and temps have actually gone down 7 deg under load from the last loop/case. Looks great and super happy.

Day 4. Cant believe its done. Glass is on and wiped (finger print magnet). Still might paint the block magnets but for now its mostly bled out(alittle more to go). Ram back to 3200mhz and CPU back to 4.6 @ 1.2v (havent seen temps over 58c yet through benchmarks and stress testing. No delid) Blown away how this turned out and im not sure if im able to upgrade the rez but ill be looking into that to fill the case out abitmore. Sorry if quality isnt what it should be all I have is my v30.

Day 7 Update is picture with more green in it. all bubbles are gone and tubes are still crystal clear.

3/28 edit: (first picture) Found a bigger res for 20$ no less, easy decision to really fill out the case. for kicks ang gigs took out the ek fans for my girls loop and added 3 more hd120s and a corsair commander so i could keep the led strips.

This is incredible! I've been considering a Lian-Li case for awhile, they're expensive, but wow just gorgeous!

how was it to build in? i imagine it's fairly easy with the two tempered glass panels off.

Easy as could be man. hardest bend was the CPU to the rad. other than that pretty simple curves.

Wonderful build mate, I can tell you're just'a'freak as much as I am about symmetry. The bends are seemingly flawless! What a gorgeous result.

+1 Quite impressed!

Ram/CPU/mobo was bought for 540. The redt just came over time. Speakers were 70 ofd FB group along with both monitors. Slow and steady won the race lol

So I'm think to get this wifi adapter too The PCE-AC56 though. But I'm having trouble figuring out the stuff with the PCI-E lanes with my i7 7700. I have a 960 evo too. So if I get one that would mean that 8 of the lanes would go to my 1080 Ti, 4 of them to my 960 evo and one would go to the wifi card?

should work just fine even with sli

Hay dude, this is a fantastic build (although I prefer uniform color RGB lights, lol...)

I just got interested in the Poseidon card, and it's much cheaper than the 1080 Ti OC. But my mindset told me the cheaper the worse. So I wanna ask do you have experienced or do you think there is a difference between the two cards? Which do you think has the better performance? Thanks :)

Poseidon has notably higher clock speeds OCed because of the more efficient cooling although the OC can compete when added to the loop. ive maxed at 2114mHz

Thank you, man. You helped me made up my mind. I will try to overclock this card to 2000mHZ or so after getting it. That will be enough for me.

Hands down the greatest build I've ever seen ANYWHERE. Definitely gonna inspire my next build. I was wondering about your loop though.. I haven't done a custom loop yet, and I'd like to. Did you select everything through the EK website? If so, could you give me some pointers? (Did you use soft/hard tubes, what materials for the block top/base, etc..) Would highly appreciate feedback from someone that could manage putting this together!

How do you connect and manage 9 rgb fans? do they all plug into the motherboard...or?

Add NZXT Hue + and it would look amazing and two more sticks of ram

  • 23 months ago

There's no reason to add the Hue+ and he probably doesn't need another 16 Gigabytes of RAM for his workload; which I'm assuming is gaming/streaming. The RAM would look nice but a Hue+ is pretty much pointless here...

For would look overkill and amazing, but its for the future

Its corsair leds my man. No reason to get a nzxt controller.
