Description

I have swapped over my build with new hardware (cooling specifically) and decided to add it to here. Cpu, MB, RAM, GPU, hard drives, cabling have not changed except i converted my Titan X to hybrid . The rest is all new.

I decided to change over to the X71 case, compared to the 800d its not the same quality but it had more room for me to add more cooling for future builds/part changes and give it a fresh all new look. Working with this case was pretty easy, there's enough room in the bottom chamber for a thick radiator/pump with tubing.

Converting my Titan X was well worth it. I went from 65-70 degrees stock non overclocked to overclocked 50 degrees max so far. The noise levels are lower, performs better and looks better imo.

My cpu temps from my previous build dropped a little but my fluid is close to ambient temps so it wont drop further. When i change over my mb/cpu eventually it will work even better as the 3930k runs pretty warm to begin with.

Not much else to say other then im happy with my new build, will eventually upgrade the rest but right now everything i throw at it still 60+ fps. Check out the previous case that has all this minus the cooling hardware.

Nice. Out of curiosity, how comes ou went the aio route for the Titan X when you have a custom loop also?

I swapped over the Titan X to Hybrid a few weeks before i changed everything else over, so that was in the old case. I figured when i do change the card i will add that to the loop so i only have to buy the card waterblock once

Ah fair play. With the prices of blocks these days themselves makes sense to wait until you get a card you plan to keep for abit.

Right, another reason why i went for the overkill cooling, allow me to add a gpu or 2 to the loop and still keep temps reasonably low.

How much did you spend on your Titan X? The new one comes out in a couple days and would probably have been a better choice.

How many volts are you feeding the cpu to get 4.6? Thanks.

i use the 25mm mount that goes with the monsoon reservoir. Here is the link to the actual mount. http://www.performance-pcs.com/monsoon-modular-reservoir-system-parts/monsoon-mmrs-25mm-reservoir-mount-red.html

Thanks. How about the mounting plate on the case.

Oh nice! for the mounting plate i had to drill 4 holes and used nut/bolts to mount it. The left side holes i had to put 2 washers behind the plate(top left bottom left) to keep it flush, it cleared everything in the back though so im able to take the reservoir off quickly if needed.
