Description

This is my first watercooled pc build. I am going to be using it to play games mostly. The one thing I was very happy that i got that helped out the most was the primochill rfb rigid tubing finishing bit. That thing made thing go a little smoother and faster. The only problem I had was finding the time to just get the tubes bent.

I went with primochill for a lot of the cooling parts (pump, tubes, fittings and their new radiators that come painted (i went with 2 360mm in white)). The reservoir was made from all monsoon parts. The water blocks are from ekwb.

Overclock (stable) The cpu is oc to 5.1 ghz with 1.325v. The gpu is oc to 2076 mhz with memory at 5994 mhz. The memory is the 2133 mhz model but i have gotten it to oc to 3000mhz.

Very nice! +1 how are those primochill radiators?? I just saw those and was thinking about getting a couple for a future build.

I really like them. The paint job on them is very well done.

I like it, very impressive and clean. And the cable management. Just wow.

Nice builds, also nice monitor, I just got a 1440p monitor as well, it is not nearly as nice as that one, but still, nice build.

+1 Seems to be an awesome build, but i would ask you for more pics of it, please?

About that monitor, does he come with something that bothers you? Or does it performs 100%?

majormech submitter 1 Build 2 points 21 months ago

I will post more pic sometime in the next few day. I like the monitor but I am going to rma mine there is cluster of dead pixels in the center of the screen that I can look past.

KarmAngel 1 point 21 months ago

Damn... That's too bad :/ I was expecting the backlight bleed some people that own this monitor, complain about it

I hope the next 1 comes 100%

Neat loop you got going on there, so what are you going to do to push that kind of performance to the max? Saw the OC, that's good and all but I'm just curious what you need a $1000 loop for...

I always wanted one and love how they look. I also like playing with the oc so the extra thermal head room is nice haha. To be honest with you i have been thinking about locking the cpu at 4ghz and not put a oc on the gpu. I like to see how quiet i can get it to run.
