Description

This is my daily rig that i primarily use for gaming with the occasional stream, Photoshop work . I have changed many parts of the past, last piece i changed over was the titan x and was the best decision ever. I had to patch the motherboard to gen 3 for the card but after that was done I've had nothing but fps ownage during gaming. I normally play with v-sync enabled because most games it just puts unnecessary strain on the card lol

Fluid used inside the loop is Fluid XP's EXT performance liquid. Ive only had to drain the loop once after my first mcp35x burned out. This stuff keeps my cpu cooled to a 68 degrees when using Aida 64 full stress. I'm sitting at 4.6ghz on all cores with a voltage of 1.34. I keep the 1 Typhoons at 1850rpm at the top blowing in through the rad with demciflex filter on top. I only dust the case out every few months and it hardly has anything in it. I have it set for high positive pressure.

My Titan X is overkill yes but inside this case it works..I have a fan angled down blowing directly down on top of it, along with the backplate it keeps it cool and i have never seen it go over 68 degrees. The evercool front bay is supplying the cold air to this said fan. I do have a custom fan profile set for this. I am thinking of buying the hybrid kit and making it AIO cooled , use the exhaust as the rad spot but right now im happy with its performance.

I use the bottom chamber for the pump and used the rubber grommets for the tubes to keep it hidden. The pump normally runs hot but because its just above the vent/dust filter at the bottom and just below a 140mm intake the pressure and air flowing over it keeps it cool.

Next change will most likely be a new reservoir and possibly change over the rad/fan position to push using the same 120mm version of the exhaust fan. (Thermaltake ring - red).

That's a great looking water cooling loop. What are those keeping the tubes together? Rubber bands? Still a cool build nonetheless.

They are red velcro ties and thanks! :)

You're welcome. I don't know why, but I thought they were thick rubber bands....

With those RPM values, sounds like one loud system when idle..unless you've posted a picture when loaded. +1 all the same....solid components and build.

Its somewhat loud but not horrible, the demciflex filter on the top changes the sound profile to more of a wooshing sound instead of the typical sound from the typhoons. I always have music going anyways lol

Looks good, but I would definitely get rid of the velcro. Would look so much better without them!

Better if you ask me!

Also, next time you have to drain your loops I would shorten the tubes a little. Will be less sagging/hanging and makes for a cleaner look in total.

Yeah when i did it, i had a smaller card and was waiting for the 690 that my wife now uses in her build here i posted as well. had to leave room as i didn't want to have to re-do it.

Nice build, but I am wondering why you wouldn't spend 60 dollars more to have windows 7

I had win 7 and upgraded to 10

That CPU tho.... why do you have a titan X and no frigen 50 million GHz processor?

Lol..I've had it for a bit..and it still runs perfectly..soon enough ill be switching. No bottlenecks yet and it runs completely stable.

Yeah it's just for my cpu. Im eventually going to go over to a new case..probably something from caselabs and when i do i will be configuring the titan x either on its on AIO or in the loop. The velcro was just something i added to make the tubing come together..no other reason.
