1.New gpu 1060 from a 780 ti
2.New copper IHS and a delid
3.New UltraViolet XSPC cooland and UV lights
This is my Project: HTPC updated
Originally built 2/16, rebuilt on 8/17, water-cooled on 2/18, updated on 5/18
First off... I call it an HTPC because that is what it is used for. This is my Project: HTPC build in my movie room that I have a 135" projector screen. We mainly watch shows and movies and do the occasional gaming on it. but it is my home theater pc!
What I changed:
1.I went from a 780 ti to a 1060 GTX, and I know it was a lateral move but I was having driver issues on newer games crashing on me. The 780 ti was a great card for what I was using this for it's just starting to lack driver support and some stability issues. (Why did I block a 1060?? This build was already setup with full loop and I wasn't planning on changing that or spending too much money on a gpu that will only see 1080p @ 60Hz. I have my Zombie Hunter 2 build with a 1080 ti for that!! )
2.I delided the 6700k because even with water it wasn't running as cool as I expected and I figured while I'm doing the gpu swap I might as well do a delid. Also was interested in the copper IHS so it was only $20 so I figured.....why not! I figure I'll be keeping this cpu for a long time so I might as well get the best out of it. I oc'd to 4.7ghz but haven't tried anymore and probably comfortable with this oc
3.I also ditched the RGB lights for UltraViolet!!! I added clear UltraViolet dye to the white XSPC coolant!
Thank you for looking!!!
