What sort of temps are you getting under load?
If you put that much time, money, and effort into building a sick gaming rig, you should definitely take the time to write a detailed description and take at least several photos to do it justice.
Whoa man... 2k on CPU and GPUs for just browsing the internet and playing PC games? That's one insanely futureproofed setup... You probably could've achieved similar performance for less.
What type of tasks are you planning on using this machine for?
I'd say definitely set aside a couple hours and refine your cable management. It'll be some brutal work, but you'll be glad you did it.
Do you have a usage for it other than gaming?
The Color Purple...
Thanks for the info!
A lot of times when I see water cooled builds, it seems like some of the tubing is slightly out of alignment, or at a wonky angle. I honestly know nothing about this; is it safe? Does it affect stability?
+1 for the epic build m8
Definitely work on getting a support solution to deal with GPU sag.
Obligatory stormtrooper wallpaper.
Wonderful build man. I can definitely tell that you spent a good amount of time researching and finding the perfect part list to match your theme.
Good luck with your build, and keep at it in the future!
Sombra main confirmed
This should get featured! You took a risk going for an unorthodox cooling solution, and it definitely payed off. I'm particularly impressed with those GPU temps.
I would highly recommend looking into some sleeved cables for your GPUs, as well as some support to prevent further sagging.
It looks awesome man, and I'm glad that you're getting the performance that you want from it.
Update us on the temps you're getting with the stock cooler!
Good luck man.
I think I smell a feature.
Great build! You should definitely think about investing in some sleeved cables down the line.
I'll agree that they definitely aren't the best for aesthetic purposes, but for performance they're a top contender. I'd rather have a build perform better and perhaps not be completely color-coded than sacrifice a bit of cooling performance for a nicer look.
Wonderful cable management! How was working with the Corsair SFF PSU cables?
I'm strongly thinking about a Node 202 build. Do you know if you can mount a 140 mm fan above the CPU cooler?
Can you install a third fan above the CPU cooler? If so, what size?
Damn! A 15C difference from delidding is YUGE!
I'd be a little worried about your CPU temps on load. If I were you I'd take things back a bit.
I'm more impressed by that GPU temperature tbh
Honestly, I'm absolutely loving every aspect of your setup.
One question, how does the PSU work?
This is why I think, for a mini ITX build, the Manta is a little ridiculous. When you can fit a full ATX board inside the chassis with a little modding, then what's the point of an ITX motherboard form factor to begin with?
How were you able to paint the AIO without covering up the Corsair logo?
It's an awesome build man. From looking through the previous versions, you've obviously put in a lot of thought and effort into this over time
Does the reservoir skull affect the pump's performance at all?
More pictures please! An english translation would also be nice.
And definitely grab something to support the GPUs.
Altre foto per favore! Una traduzione in inglese sarebbe anche bello.
E sicuramente afferrare qualcosa per sostenere le GPU.
Blower-style cards are magnitudes better for SFF cases like the Node 202. It's worth the extra $$
Ha! Yep. that's how it goes. There's always one more upgrade! ;)
Definitely keep us updated with temperatures once you get 5 Ghz working and swap out the cables for sleeved ones! All around great build man.
Great build man. My first build went considerably less smooth. You've got some great part choices that should last you a long while.
No worries man! How was the EVGA model performing for you? I have a similar one.
Make sure to give it a good title! You already have your specs in the description. ;P
Yeah that's sketchy af
More pictures please! I'm loving your photography skillz.
Since your build is called "Polar Panda," I quoted a lyric from the song Panda by Desiigner
But do you have polar broads in atlanta?
I've read descriptions from english speakers that were far worse than yours. Keep up the good work m8!
What are your thermals?
Definitely add clearer pictures.
What an awesome build! I hope that it serves you well for years to come.
I'm hoping that this gets featured. It's always nice to see old electronic parts still getting use.
Please tell me you main Mei in Overwatch. ;)
Great, clean build man. Might want to try some more cable management on your desk to make things look perfect!
You should call it "Bomb Pop!"
