Originally this build was going to be an all amd and msi build, but my 390x crapped out on me. I decided to go with nvidia at this point because a few of my games utilize physx. On that note I knew I was going to put in two 1080's. The case and ram was already purchased so I stuck with the black and red theme. As the title states this was my first water cooled build, I went with ridged tubing because of the side panel. I have since done a mini-itx with soft tubing, both had their difficulties. This build of course was the bending of the tubing, and the mini-itx was the frustration of getting everything to fit and figure out the drain system in it. I had a 360 tr4 AIO on it when I first built this in December of 2017, but was unable to overclock it, that's why I had decided to water cool it. I didn't need the slim 240 in the bottom, but I had bought it for the mini itx thinking i could get two in it, but i was wrong. The custom cables from cable-mod are nice but i had bought the gpu cables with the "pro" selection not realizing that Threadripper not only uses an extra CPU cable but the pcie uses one too. So I had to reorder those two cables without the "pro" selection. The radiators are a 60mm-360 at the top running push-pull, the front is a 45mm-280 also in push-pull, then the bottom is a 30mm-240 with two slim Silverstone fans running in pull. Totaling in at 13 Fans, running at 30% all the time, needless to say, its pretty cool and silent. Everything is overclocked, CPU is overclocked to 4.00 on all cores, and the gpus are overclocked too.
