Description

frustrating at times, but happy with the end result.

Was asked to add some to the description - This actually wasn't my first liquid cooled build, it's the first build I've ever done at all. I watched a few youtube videos and decided it couldn't be that hard and went for it. It actually turned out to be a bit more complicated than I thought lol but I guess the hardest thing is the acrylic tubing... other than figuring out where to mount everything. There's a few items that aren't in the part picker list - mainly all of the water cooling gear. I went with 2 X alphacool 480 X 60mm for the front and 1 X 420mm X 45mm for the top. I also used alphacool reservoirs and pumps, ek block for gpu, and bitspower fittings. I originally wanted to do a push pull with the front radiators as well but I just couldn't see a way to make it all fit. I've got 10 LL 120mm fans and 6 LL 140mm in it. I've been known to make impulsive purchases and this was definitely one that I enjoyed in the end. Enough so that I'll be doing another one way over the top as this year goes on. Thanks for all the likes folks.

Premium parts for a premium build. Please add to the description if you can. I suggest this may qualify for a premier build on this site. Anyone second that?

Oh my! That is one hell of a build!

Why the AX1600i Sticker on the radiator?

I also couldn't help but notice that case is so big it doesn't even fit on your desk! Either way... really nice job. Overkill in the best way possible.

How do you like the Intel Optane? I'm looking at weather it's needed in an upcoming gaming build :)

It's ridiculously fast - noticeable improvement in basic tasks, such as web browsing, copying files, moving files

hm, though do you feel it makes enough of a difference to x10 the storage price? of course one would only use this for OS and Games etc. and not all the storage. I'm on the fence on this one =)

This is absolutely insane. Where do you get all this money and how are you able to justify spending it on a computer?! lol

Also, what do you do with it? Pretty insane that this was your first ever build...
