your radiator has much higher resistance than that mesh, believe me
you should swap the nocuta intake with the nzxt radiator fan, the noctua fan has better static pressure
budget and watercooling generally don´t go together really well
its stock boost is 4.5 ghz
get a bequiet psu. also oc that cpu, that cpu cooler is really powerful
Always nice to see some air coolers
some say these noctua industrial ppc fans are louder than the brown ones, have you experienced that too?
Use bitspower fittings, they're just better
you should remove the backplate from the 2nd gpu, as it it restricting airflow to the top card. your temps will drop, so your clocks will rise.
wall mounts. i have one too
and for tubing i recommend primochill - i first used mastercleer and it became cloudy after a month. i then bought the primochill tubes and after a year or so they still look new.
if you do it, buy way more of the tube you think you´re gonna need, so you can do every bend a few times until you´re happy, because it isn´t easy. but i haven´t done it yet, so i don´t really know.
Use bitspower fitting and ek blocks, fans and radiators. That's the best you can get for watercooling
yeah, that´s what i thought. but a good idea nonetheless
that case screams for custom watercooling. with a 200mm radiator in the front and a fat 240/280 in the bottom with push/pull configuration. that would look sick
it is nice to see some watercooled GPUs on this site, especially with an air cooled CPU, which is kind of exotic in high end builds
yes. you should first invest in performance upgrades and then in watercooling, because it makes no sense to watercool not high end components
yeah, money is obviously an issue. and a custom loop is a money trap, because you always want to make it better or change some little thing, but then you need a thinner radiator, because the case doesnt support 80mm thick radiators and bla bla
hey i have the same gpu + cpu. good choice
nice. how loud are those tiny fans?
love that noctua
i like that you don´t have a closed loop liquid cooler like everyone and their uncle. all in all a good build. when you upgrade your gpu eventually, you have to do a custom loop, it would look really good in that case
yeah, of course
for productivity 4k is better, but for gaming ultrawide, i would say
yeah i know, they do look good
yeah, probably. but you don´t reeally notice the difference from 4k vs 1440p anyways, so if you want a resolution upgrade but not a gpu upgrade, buy a 1440p panel, maybe even 21:9
wow, i wouldn´t have thought they are so good
that´s good to hear. you know, if i see led fans i always i always think thei´re cheap and crappy
how loud are the case fans? and from what brand?
probably around 150-250, if i had to guess, depends on the games
it´s not the same, but i have a 980 ti custom watercooled. i think you will void your warranty, if you do that, but if you aren´t extremely careless with your card, nothing should happen
you could do a custom loop with cpu+gpu in that case, it would improve the overlocking capabilities of that cpu and make the gpu boost higher and more consistent
35c unser load?! You got some overclocking headroom threre!
yeah, i have a custom loop right now, but i´m kinda tired of it. a nh-d15 would be pretty cool
really nice, +1 for the air cooled cpu
what you could try if you want a challenge is cram a h55 or something in as a cpu cooler, the fan would have to be on the outside of the case, but it would be very interesting to see. otherwise, really nice build
better going down in a blaze of glory than living a live of mediocrity
now i can see them! respect for modding a psu. i like your build, it´s always nice to see something creative here
Where are these two noctua fans and what are they doing? I can't see them in the pictures and I'm mot familiar with apple cases
it makes like no difference. also there isn´t any air intake next to that radiator, so it´s fine
it isn´t bad, the air is only like 5 degrees C hotter. jayztwocents made a video on it and i can confirm it, if you would look at my build. i have had it for some time now and i can say there aren´t any problems. i monitor the temps of everything with hwmonitor and it is all good
**** i should´ve read the other comments first
that card is much overkill for 1080p, i hae a 980ti and a 1440p monitor, i can max out any game and still are above 60 fps. i´m not saying you should buy a 980ti, but a 1060 i think would be more suitable for 1080p
what an original and exotic choice for a cpu cooler! no one has ever done that before you! congratulations on your originality!
well if you like it then it´s good, it was just an idea of mine
you know, you could put the ssds in that empty area at the front of the case with double sided tape, i believe it would look better than it does now
I like it's, just because you have an air cooled CPU. You don't see them much these days in high end builds
you could even use hyper 212 evo on that chip without it overheating, you just can´t do much oc.
sounds pretty good. i have a custom loop and the pump is the loudest too
