Description

Big fan of the Hulk and decided to make a computer themed after that (hence the green and purple). This is my first time doing hard tubing (I have done custom watercooling before but only with soft tubing).

Switched over from the Corsair 570x case to the Lian Li PC-O11 dynamic. The 570x case was nice but I wasn't happy with the cooling performance (I wanted low rpm on the fans for noise). The most radiators I could fit in the 570x case was a 360 SE EKWB and a 240 SE EKWB.

So once I purchased the Lian Li, I switched everything over and decided to add a 360 XE EKWB monster radiator to the build. Along with doing hard tubing (I have never done hard tubing before but decided to try it out).

The bending wasn't the easiest and I bought just enough tubing to mess up a few times. In the future I will end up re-doing the bends and adding the motherboard VRMs to the loop.

Anyways let me know what you guys think.

Just wondering Is the i5 8600k holding back the 2080ti at all.

I haven't noticed any bottlenecking and have the CPU overclocked to 5.1 GHz (it is delidded with liquid metal and an aftermarket copper IHS) .

My friend has a 8700k, 2080ti and 1440p ultrawide. His CPU is on an aio and we typically get the same fps. I usually beat his FPS by a little due to the higher overclocks (thanks to the lower temps).

I found some more info over on gamersnexus if interested- https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3157-intel-i5-8600k-review-overclocking-vs-8700k-8400/page-2

Thanks I also have an I5 8600k @5ghz and have seen it do amazing things but the 2080ti is just a beast so was not sure.

I mean, not even a year ago the 8600k was known as one of the best gaming chips. The 2080ti should pair up nicely with it. It's the multi threading that really limits the 8600k.

Typically, If all you do is game, the 8600/9600k will suffice just fine.

When I try something so much as running a youtube video while playing any type of graphic demanding game, things can get a bit buggy. (I have an 8600k with a 2080)

now looking at userbenchmark and seeing that a 8700k is just an 8600k with hyperthreding I see what you mean.

I like the green and purple theme.

This gives me hope because I plan on doing my first hard tube Build soon. Congrats on the pc!

Well, if your planning on overclocking, definitely get an aio. Also, stay away from 5400 RPM drives.

This is what i would change with it https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mrt9dX

So, you would change his entire build?

no just cooling and storage setup. A cheaper mobo would could also be a good idea but if you have the $$ than thats not a problem.

What's your budget? btw you could honestly upgrade that cpu cooler because it probably won't have much headroom for overclocking

Very cool! I love the Hulk too, you should check out my build if you get a chance. I really like the hard tubing and the color of that liquid. I've been thinking about putting a custom loop on my card, but after pricing it out I may just wait until my next build. Great job!
