Description

I've had this build for a few months now, posting it now since Pascal is releasing soon and I'm going to tear her down and redo the loop with the GTX 1080 (possibly two). Obviously this water-cooling setup is a little overkill considering the fact that I am only running a single GTX 980Ti but I really wanted the experience with the multi radiators and bending PETG. My next build will probably be opaque orange or purple coolant, soft white LED's with 90° fittings with glass tubing. Anyway let me know what you all think.

A lot of builds have watercooling, I think this is special for having a great quality mobo! ;-)

Are there any water blocks currently available that fit the 1080 or do you know of any plans for one?

  • 42 months ago

there are going to be waterblocks no doubt. but considering the card has not even been released yet I doubt there are any made right now.

I'm sure nvidia has given early access to companies for R&D for related products before launch. Now we just have to wait

Nice loop, very neat bends. Did you use a bending tool? If so, which one?

1080 is fricken awesome! 4k 100+hz in the near future! Your water cooling scheme is fricken beautiful. Just be patient with the blocks for a 1080 though

UV light mode working great with your coolant dye. This looks really nice, but wow $4700. Gotta pay to be cool.

U need to move the drain from the top to the bottom if u actually want it to work correctly.

Very Nice Build, this should definitely be a featured build! +1. Good choice on the UV color as well. I'm wondering if you've experienced any fading of the UV glow over time. I've heard that the UV doesn't usually last long, and I just finished a build with UV as well, so I'm a little nervous about that part.

I have not noticed any fading in the coolant itself, but I will say I have have gone through 4 different light strips and 2 different brands trying to find UV lights that would not fade. Originally I ordered Phobya LED-Flexlight HighDensity lights from performance-pcs and they faded within a week, I replaced them with a second set and it happened again. So I decided to try CableMod's new widebeam lights, my first set quickly faded, and when I contacted CableMod they said that they were aware of the issue and were developing new strips. Eventually I purchased another set and its been about a month and a half and I have not noticed any change.

nice but 1080 might be expensive at first release... so maybe wait till price drops

  • 42 months ago

The price of the flagship card will never drop until a new one takes it's place. In this case if they release a 1080Ti or until the next generation of graphics cards. The 980Ti is still going for almost the same price as it was on launch day.

Why the 1300W PSU? Talk about overkill.

When I purchased my 980Ti I got 50% off any EVGA power-supply so I got this one for like $85.

are the radiator fans on the other side not visible in the photos? I have a huge 360 radiator and was wondering if the was going to be enough room either up top or front for this thing! I have a d5 pump and probably a DIY mason jar rez.

  • 42 months ago
  • 1 point

Yeah the top 360 radiator fans are sitting on top, the only reason I have them like that is because these radiators have multi-port ends so the plugs would prevent the rad from sitting flush up against the case. In the front of the case I put the fans on the outside just so I had more room to work with for my pump and reservoir.

thanks. If you could take a couple pics, that would be so great :)

Alright, I just added a few more photos of the front and a couple of the top, little hard for me to get good shots of the top rad.

2 Quick questions about the motherboard what is the power fan used for?? And Can it be used for a chassis fan??

awesome build, btw is there anything note worthy of that motherboard, i just may get on myself

Not really anything to important, if you want to run an M.2 and RAID it doesn't work on some BIOS versions and if you are running SLI and have back-plates on the cards the top slot prevents you from inserting the GPU. I had to bend the I/O shroud to get it to fit.

thanks, i did not know that.

I was wondering if those extra fans are quiet. Also do you think i could use an i5 with the 1070 or should I upgrade to i7

  • 42 months ago
  • 1 point

Well I run all my fans at 25% so I would say they are pretty quiet. As for upgrading your cpu I think you would be just fine with an i5, but if it's not enough you could always upgrade your cpu after you try out the 1070.

  • 42 months ago
  • 1 point

What i5 is it and what do you plan to do the the computer? If you're gaming then an i7 would make a minimal difference and likely not help if you're expecting a GPU bottleneck.

If you have a gen 5 or 6 i5 (Haswell or Skylake) you should be fine. I'm using the i5 4460 and plan to get the 1070 when it comes out.

  • 42 months ago

What he said. Very unlikely an i5 will bottleneck pascal. Unless it's like a 2k series lmao.

  • 42 months ago

Ya I was worried about the i5 getting bottle necked. I think ill buy a higher tier i5 like maybe a 6600K just in case but thanks for the responses
