Description

EDIT: So happy to be re-featured! Thank you so much PCPP!!! EDIT 2: Added more photos, this time of the rig turned off

Hi guys! I finally completed the build about a week ago and I couldn't be happier. This is my first ever water cooling project and it couldn't have been any more daunting to do it with hard line brass tubes on the first run. Needless to say, the way the brass pipes look with the RGB lighting came out exactly the way I'd envisioned.

I had originally wanted to collaborate with a local modder but the itch to learn and do things on my own was too great that I'd spent hours between shopping for parts and watching instructional Youtube videos. I ended up buying from different retailers like Performance-PCs, PrimoChill, EK and even going so far as ordering parts from AliExpress. I had my fair share of (forgivable) mistakes like buying push-in fittings, and buying too many extra fittings etc. But all that, I charge to experience. I'm in the process of planning my 2nd watercooled build and am practicing pipe-bending etc.

Anyway, what you have here is a PC that nods to the Game of Thrones fan inside me. Dracarys is High Valyrian for Dragonfire and this is what this PC is. It looks like a furnace burning hot with Dragonfire, forging molten Valyrian steel into weapons to use for the coming Winter. The shiny brass tubes are a tease to what the supposed weapons look like... hard, shiny, and just plain awesome. I made a gif to flash on the Livedash feature that says "Fire and Blood" and it just looks way too cool. Targaryens in the house, put your hands in the air! The Nighthawk RGB looks a bit like dragon wings, and the reservoirs are lit orange and filled with orange "molten steel" coolant.

The Threadripper system idles in the low 30's and peaks at around 75 degrees under full load with a 3.8Ghz overclock on 1.37v Vcore. Although I'm not sure if these are accurate or if threadripper has the same 20+ degree offset for Ryzen X processors. Regardless, I'm happy with my processor speeds and find no need in pushing for overclocks.

The Poseidon peaks at about 65 degrees on full load and reaches clocks of about 2025-2050mhz.

Hope you all like this build! Looking forward to sharing more in the future.

Linus tried it. It was so bad that he didn't show the 1080p results (with a GTX1080)

Lobsterareawesome 5 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Why was it so bad actually? Never really understood that cuz linus didnt explain **** in the video

It bottlenecked a 1080 so hard XD

Where's the blood?

+1

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

I guess I should've cut myself in making this build and wiped the blood on the case. LOL!

Datamatr1x 1 Build 1 point 27 days ago

My first PC build, I did this. Not intentionally but I got my hand on a heatsink and dripped blood on the mobo. I thought about it for a minute and was like... meh, I am not cleaning that.

Nice Build +1 but your monitor set seriously made me get a headache :-)

Very nice. I am such a sucker for brass, I regret that I have but one +1 to give.

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Me too, knew that I had to do it as soon as I saw a brass build!

Sawdog 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Awesome job! I hope someday I can doing something like this.

Radox-0 3 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Very nice job bud! Love those water res, always feel like wanting to use them. Great choice of parts and love the case.

Those water temps on the GPU seem pretty warm though.

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

hmm I'm not sure. I think it's pretty fine since I'm using a single 360 to cool 2 components, while on an overclock. Haven't had the chance to test it out on its own. Pretty far, still, from the 80's on air at least!

Thanks, they're pretty cool reservoirs with LED slots on them.

Tech22 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

if you went with the WGX version of the case, you could have 3 360 radiators :)

+1 INB4FEATURE

Tech22 1 Build 2 points 1 month ago

CALLED IT

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

yup! Had no way of getting the case here. I actually waited 30 days to get the case as it was ordered by a local retailed from Lian Li themselves. The folks at Lian Li said it would've taken til Oct 31 (this was back in mid-August) to manufacture the case and get it here. I guess they shipped all their stock out back to retailers elsewhere. Couldn't wait the full 75 days so I opted for the WX

Amazing build!!

The RAM on both sides just makes it! And the dragon logos!

My Viserion build pales in comparison lol.

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Right?? Love the Ice build on Viserion though. That was one of the possible themes when I was planning this build. That and Nymeria-wolf-ish theme. Ended up with the fire and blood one though.

AfzalivE 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks! I think fire and blood turned out menacingly perfect for you. Wolf wouldn't have been as aggressive as this one. Nice photos too!

Velocirevan 1 point 1 month ago

This build is pretty spooky, in a good way

sergeantfoley 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I normally dislike RGB, but that color is fantastic! Great photography too!

PTjutsu 6 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Awesome build! Interesting to see how different our builds turned out while using almost the same parts. <3

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I know man! I saw your feature and I was like... WOAH! And I was in the process of waiting for all my stuff at the time too!

saw this on a filipino pc shop page are u filipino?

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

YUUUUUP!!!! I think PCHub shared it.

BoiLogro 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

NICE!! Good to see a fellow filipino here

customgtp 16 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I love this build!!

The lights off the build and chrome make it all look bronze/copper and gives it a bit of steam punk look. Great fluidity going on!!

Did that case have a vertical mount setup or is that a mod you did? I love vertical gpu's and modded both my pc's with a vertical mount bracket mod.

Congrats on the feature!!

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Lian Li includes it with the PC-O11WGX and sells them separately with the PC-O11WX and WW versions.

Thanks for the praise, means a lot! :D

You know it's a damn fine build when it gets featured twice.

Damn fine build.

XFacility 1 point 1 month ago

Makes me feel nice and cosy. Sick build wish I had the talent to build PCs like that, too scared to attempt hard-line watercooling xDD

Kisalida 1 point 1 month ago

NICE BUILD!!!! Looks absolutely amazing!!How is the memory compared to a G.Skill?

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The Nighthawk has a really wide heatsink. Other than that, the XMP profile works just fine. The RGB effects works as well as any other, so for me, it's more an aesthetic and size compatibility question. For my needs and my theme, this RAM was perfect. I used to own the TridentZ's and would go with them if the theme and build was more fit for it, but in this case, the Nighthawk was the clear winner.

KingKiller1759 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Those temps do seem a little high on the GPU. I have an Asus Strix 1080 and i never exceed 50C even with a 2066 mhz core clock dialed in at 50% fan curve.

Water should be keeping that card around 40. I wonder why its high.

gunit1111 3 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I didn't realize how gigantic that Threadripper box is! That build is pretty sweet though!

surefir3 1 point 1 month ago

What would look stunning is if you could get an angle on the gpu so the infinity mirror is still visible. Really good build, but it isn't the usual strix so there isn't as much sag anyway. It would be fine to use the horizontal...but it looks very good...just saying with that budget the possibilities are endless.

WaggishCrowd80 1 point 1 month ago

was the brass hard to bend is that why there is so many angle fittings?

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Brass pipes are unbendable. Chrome pipes that are bent are usually painted copper. If you try bending these pipes the chrome plating will chip off.

thermophile 1 point 28 days ago

did your memory OC easily?

iceanddice submitter 4 Builds 1 point 25 days ago

hmm, just used to 3200mhz setting on the BIOS. seems to be working smoothly. :)

Please compare the headphones with and without the amplifier.
