I feel your pain when I look at builds like this one.

Great build, however, you should consider getting a custom loop and just hooking all those components to one loop if you really want water cooling. Could free more room in your case

I certainly agree. It's a great build, but buying a cpu water block and two gpu water blocks and making a custom loop would have been much better at this price point. It would give more room, and look much better than rigging a cpu cooler onto a gpu.

Agreed. I wanted to play it safe for now. Years ago I did a custom solution and had a bad exp. This is the first time I've gone back to liquid cooling in 5 years. Figured closed loop would be safer atm

The Corsair logo on it's side is driving me bonkers but I am OCD like that. There are tubes everywhere but your temps are awesome. Nice build.

I would never get a 970 as a gift, my family has no clue what any of "this" is. Great build, nice cat, I actually like that watercooling solution.

You spent all that money but still got a HDD? =/

Yes, but why not opt for a larger SSD? Spending this kind of money on a new build but opting for old technology makes no sense.

I'm so surprised that you fit so many coolers in a Micro ATX case. And damn, never knew cats could make a computer... and sing

hi mate, I have a question, how did you fit a 120mm radiator at the back of the case, the website of the manufacturer (corsair) says that the rear fan is 140mm (sorry for my bad english , google translator)

They have holes to fit a 120mm as well. :)

http://www.corsair.com/~/media/Corsair/Product%20Photos/cases/carbide-series/540/black/large/AIR540_hero_back.png If you look on the back where the grill is for the fan. You will notice 4 holes that are closer to the center. Those are the 120mm fans.

Apologies for the late response!

at this level, custom water cooling loop would probably be better *but if it's not broken, dnt fix it :)

How did that 1TB HDD cost $130? That's the price of a 4TB WD Green!

Other than that, nice build. I still don't understand why you have two sets of headphones. I'd have saved $60 on cheaper, equally reliable Kingston HyperX ram and used that along with the total headphone budget to buy a respectable pair of Astros though.

Took the hard drive from an old build. PC parts doesn't let you add a date apparently. Everything else was new

+1 Nice build, but how did you manage to pay that much for a HDD? Anyways, nice build!

Lovely build dude, how easy is the g10 to install on the msi gtx 970 as this is the one that I have personally?

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

very easily. The EVGA model was harder b/c the power connections were in the middle. the MSI was easy

Is the MSI card the Msi 4g gtx 970? Because on a forum somebody mentioned that it isn't compatible with the kraken g10, due to the VRMs being on the wrong side or something like that. Is this case, as I will be getting another msi 4g 970 and want to put a g10 on both.

  • 58 months ago
  • 1 point

Yup! And yes it was a pain in the *** to work with. I got it to work though

  • 48 months ago

Are you still using the G10s on the MSI cards? Are they compatible?

  • 48 months ago
  • 1 point

Yup! Any of the 970s you look at make sure the power connectors are at the end of the card. My original evga 970 didn't and the kraken didn't fit.

Uhm, why do you need Advanced LRT tubing? I cant see the tubing in this build. Your not custom-looping.

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

I may be wrong, but it looks like he replaced the tubes on the Corsiar H105

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah I ended up scrapping them. The red tubing wasn't flexing well. :(

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

Lol... Could you Tell me what was your plan?? The h105 hast no "serial" fittings. Its factory filled, so how you wanted to geht the Tubing on there???

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

yeah. There is a slightly thicker tubing that you "wrap over" the corsair tubing :P. Several people have done it with just ONE cooler. And were fine. With all the tubing I had, it made it more difficult. So I said screw it
