Your CPU cooler also already comes with thermal compound by the way.

Dude I'm usually not a fan of blue but this is the most badass build I've EVER seen even though it was build 2 years ago. Simply amazing!

Could you have kept it cool with a fan instead of coolant? Im brand new to the pc world and I prefer fans. Im building it for gaming on high standards.

looking back closed loop water cooling is just as good as air cooling, if i was to do this build again id probably go air. probably would have went phantecks or something equivalent.

I think even /r/cableporn would appreciate this if they haven't already. :3 Those curves.
Er, I mean, those 6 hours really paid off. It's beautiful.

its not bad man, its keeps temps pretty low for aircooling, but I wouldn't buy it again. Probably a phantecks PH TC14PE, or antec khuler 920

You have any money to upgrade your cpu cooler I recommend the Corsair H60 it's an entry level water cooling cpu cooler and it's awesome. The radiator is very small too. I'll be using it in my own build.

I think this is one of the best looking computers I have ever seen. I love the look of big air coolers, and the v8 certainly looks awesome. I love the accelero on the graphics card. Also, I love the fact this is not overkill. In my opinion spending more than 2000$ on a computer is ridiculous, and given the time when this was built I think you picked very good parts. Once again, this thing looks awesome, I'm jealous!

Hey i totally agree the graphics card i actually got for $120 from a guy on kjiji, so it wasnt close to $2000. Thanks for the feedback man it took me a long time (upgrading everything) to get it all looking nice and clean.

what a huge CPU cooler you put into it. Can believe you can work out those wires. Also a nice job with the light. Can you turn all the light off during the night? looking for a controller that can do it.

About video card, you can check on 760 actually. Good price performance combination.

at your local computer shop.... if your in canada, CanadaComputers has tons of different colours, or you could just order them online.

A 650 ti should be fine for this build. It's 2GB and it is over clocked. Lastly, the price comes down to 130 and it is a better performer.
