Description

Mainly gaming, and everyday use. My friend helped me out with picking out the parts. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Euthnode/ Fluid is now opaque yellow from EKWB. I have not overclocked yet, will provide overclock once done. These pictures are not the full computer, I'm waiting on ssd so I can clean up all those cables in the front.
I'm a first time builder, this build was pretty fun!

Part Reviews

CPU

New Kabylake! I got this OC'ed to 5.1 but it's temps are insane.

Motherboard

Holds a world record overclock Built to overclock

Memory

I have no idea why I got 32GBs but I did

Video Card

Founders edition to water cool. Love this thing, so powerful OC'ed to 2025 MHz

Case

Couldn't fit my top rad perfectly and wasn't much space to work with. I got it because its cheap and built for water coolers.

Power Supply

Just a power supply, was running pretty hot at first, but I changed it in Corsair link to turn on the fan at 40%

Operating System

Windows

Case Fan

I got industrial Noctuas for the black color, they're well known for making quality fans Sadly all the fans didn't fit and I only used 2 of the fans, I gave the other to my brother.

Case Accessory

Adds some lights, but it doesn't let you change the brightness of them. 2 ended up breaking.

Other

Y splitter in case my fan wire didn't reach the 8 way splitter.

Other

All fans and pump where hooked up to this. made it easier to control in BIOs

Other

These cables tangled together pretty easily but they're very nice.

Other

Great tubing! Came with system cleaning and biocide, used it in the pics above but later used EK fluid. 2 for when I messed up.

Other

Pretty cheap, but works great!

Other

For Noctuas the black and yellow theme I went with, too bad they don't match mobo.

Other

People said these were very good, only bought 1 pack because I need only 2. Rest I bought from EK but they didn't compress/lock. They're like barb fittings but still have compression on them but it won't tighten. It may have been a mistake from Amazon.

First build and you went a little HAM on it? Respect, +1

Omar14 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah, a basic air cooling was too easy!

mlach 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Apparently a basic AIO cooler was too easy as well XD

Omar14 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

It was fun installing the tubing and the water cooling!

Amazing build! May I ask though, why there's no prices?

Omar14 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

It is purchased, so once I bought something I put it to 0

caps_l0ck 1 point 7 months ago

Omar14 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

More to come once I get fluid and ssd in!

Bfcsupar 1 point 7 months ago

Love the build. I was wondering how you got the noctua corners so perfect? I currently am trying to paint mine red but it's not coming out to well. So looking for any advice especially because you're looks sick.

Bfcsupar 1 point 7 months ago

Wow thank you so much I just ordered a few sets of these. Makes my day so much better haha
