A xeon build with a few second hand parts ebcasue of the good price to performance ratio at the time. The xeon i picked up for just under £55 and the motherboard was a bit mroe expensive at £160 but this was cheaper than buying an quivilent performer from new. The RX 480 with the AIO attached to it was a custom mod of my own. I knew the AIO would fit the card but i really wanted to keep the asthetics of the the card and so i managed to hack the abse plate up to fit the AIO and i had to cut a few sections out of the shroud to allow the pipes clearence. I now realise that icould of used a copper shim to raise the AIO block so i didnt have to cut the baseplate to shreds. Inside the shroud i added the heat fins that came witht he kit to the VRMs. The kit i used was a ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid III-140. The RX-480 can overclock to 1410MHz and the memort can go to 2115MHz but the most stable setting ii have found on my card is 1395MHz on the core and 2100 on the memory before i get ghraphical issues. The only reason iam limitted it because of the wattage and power usage pulling the clocks down instead of the tempurateure becasue the max ive seen on this card is 60c and the limit is set at max, which is 90c.

Wild build, hopefully the old architecture works out for you.

If you're going for it, see if you can find anything that'll work for watercooling that CPU and that's a great place to go on.
