Description

So This started back in Dec of 2015 on updating my rig.

Started with the OCZ ssds, Case and GTX970 Video card. Then went to the 6600k, z170 board, the 980ti and the m.2. Was happy with that. but when the new Broadwell E cpus dropped. I just had to have one. So I sold the 6600k, the Mobo and the 16gb of ram. To now the Current set up of this. Which to me is now one of the most bad *** setups. 6800k, GTX 1080 32gb of ram and so on. It has cost me alot of money but I am very happy with the end result. (which is never over...)

So the way I have this pc set up is that I have the Samsung 950 pro nVme drive running my os and esental programs which Avgs about 1.7GBps read and and 1GBps of write, The OCZ Trion 100s are set up in a RAID 0 for 500gb of storage and Basically house my games. They avg somewhere around 800MBps read and 600MBs write and the the 2 2tb WD blacks for backup and storage. The custom loop took me about 8 hours to build. (First time doing it) but I am quite happy with the result.

Long short if it. I love doing this and I love buying new PC parts. Even though my wife makes me sell the old ones. Its Always fun.

Any questions drop it below.

"Hmm it needs something....." truthfully, it's never really finished. As evidence of the past renditions of this built each month since July. This looks amazing. It's always looked amazing, though.

Thumbs up.

Your right. But It is done for the time being.... Im really debating on a second 1080... but That will be for the future.

Alright! There you go. 1080 sli water cooled. Yes, sir! Looking forward to Lelu the next version now.

Stunning job on the tubing. As someone who will soon begin my watercooling loop this is great inspiration!

Good luck with it. Remember to be patient with the bends and Jayztwocents is where I learned. Really him teaching paulshardware how to do it. It takes time. If you get frustrated walk away. It took total between the 3 updates about 8hours just to do the bends.

  • 32 months ago
  • 2 points

Yeah I watched that video where Jay was helping Paul. I've got quite alot of extra tubing and I also bought a tubing insert and a 90 degree mandrel (though I've heard many people end up preferring freehand and ditching the mandrel, figured I'd give it a try). I'm preparing for some inevitable trial and error, thanks for the encouragement :)

Best tip I can give you is figure out where you want your bend and mark it with a sharpie.(You can use Rubbing alcoholic to whip it off) and then atempt the bend

Love the tubing a bunch. Curious about the 120 being on the front but I guess you might block access to one of your DIMM slots.

Plus I do like what you did with the tube between the pump and gpu, so when you go SLI you only need to cut the tubing down. Definitely considering that when I watercool my gpu!

+1 to YOU my friend!

Honestly it was the only place it would fit. And its a 140mm. I am working on positive pressure since I have the Rear case fan pulling air in. Not having any cooling issues.

I do love that case... But I really like the doors on the on the 760t. Just with it was a bit bigger and had more water cooling support.

Good lord! Those bends... WOW.

If I could bend hard tubing like that, I'd put a mile of it my case too :)

Very nice.

the loop looks great and i really like the orange color! ! any reason you didn't put the front radiator on the back port near the cpu? i'm not 100% sure it would fit but by looking at the pictures, it might have been able to save you a bunch of extra tubing and routing. either way, it looks great !! love the case too, shows off the interior nicely

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

Yea it would of fit... but that's boring... I LOVE long runs. So that's what I went for.

  • 32 months ago

Looks great, obviously! One question/ concern, that drainage, have u got the drain before the intake for the res? How are you gonna drain the system?

Your res is going to run dry before the loop is empty?! Or will gravity and a bit of rocking do it?

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

Good question... The Drain is at the bottom on the return side. So yes it does cause a bit of trouble getting it out. The way I have done it the lase couple of times is open it let it drain with the top of the res open then rock it back and forth. I will more than likely pick up a T to put up next to the top rad to act as a air intake kinda deal. If you can believe this is my first water cooling loop... So I'm still learning about all the drain methods.

  • 32 months ago
  • 2 points

just thinking if u have the drain straight after the output you can use the pump while draining and its at the lowest point of the build then too. Confessing I've never been brave enough to do a build myself just done reading and research I've been tempted. lol.

Good luck.

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

You can't use the Pump to drain the system because you would risk getting liquid on the mobo and what not from the "air release" And it In theory will drain at the lowest point.

I say go for it. Just take your time. Double check everything and @Jayztwocents is one of the best resources I can say to use.

Sick build! The Orange and white motherboard makes me think of the Asiimov skins in CSGO.

I've never done hard tubing either and I'm considering it for my next build. However looking at the tubes coming out of the GPU, it seems that the other pcie lanes are completely blocked off.

If you had decided to use a pcie ssd like an Intel 750, do you think you would have been able to bend around it?

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

There is room to add cards in under. I left enough room to do that. I have no intentions of going to a 750 since I already have a Samsung 950 NVM.e drive. but to answer you questions Yes you can bend it to leave room for stuff like that.

Very nice. Tastefully done tubing. Brother, if your wife is cool with you doing your thing, and all she needs is for you to do is sell the old parts then you are all good. Guys like us (DIYers and such) are lucky to have wives who get it! My wife of course says she wants decent appliances, kitchen appliances... they cost more than I realized, but she said "Well when you are in your garage building and fixing stuff you always get good tools, same thing when I am making bread and cooking in the kitchen. I don't want crappy tools". So we have an understanding, we don't question each other's needs for tools :) Anyway, off the subject there a bit... Very nice rig. Looks clean. Nice work.

Yeah. Fortunately for me She is as just into it as I am. Her current setup is a i7 6700k at 4.5 and a 980ti. Planning on doing a Custom loop on that very soon.

Nice PC btw stonewall618, that is some sexy tubing ;)

+1 that tubing work is amazing :D i just wanted to say that ur corsair fan at the rear of the case is not mounted properly : it pulls the air inside the case... Not good for ur airflow :)

  • 32 months ago
  • 1 point

There is a spific reason that is that way. I want positive pressure. With 2 140s pulling in air. (and now one with a rad in front) and 3 exhausting. I would have negative pressure. It actually doesn't mess up air flow as bad as you would think. I needed more cooling over my ram and the chip set.

Really nice! Can I ask you what voltage was required to get that clock?

To get to 4.6 stable I had to push it to 1.495v But clearly that is way to high... I have backed it off to 4.4 at 1.35v. 4.5 stable was around 1.43v again. Little to much on the chip
