Description

Hello all, This is my first attempt at building a full custom hard line water cooled PC. I use this as my main PC for gaming. Any negative or positive comments are appreciated. Thank you.

Nice work! I'm not sure about the shiny nickel fittings used with the green fluid look. I think darker ones would suit the black case better, like black satin, or black nickel. Just my opinion man, it still looks really good.

Thank you very much. Actually the fittings are all Bitspower black sparkle believe it or not. I think my crappy phone photos just do not show it that well. Thank you very much for the suggestion, I may just go with straight clear liquid next time, just always wanted to have UV green so had to do it:)

I love the UV green as well. It's classic. I looked up the bitspower black sparkle and they do appear little darker than in your pictures.

np, random question though, how hard was it to do hardline, cause iv wanted to for awhile but I dont want to risk it

Hello Yognaught_Ace, it really just takes practice. Buy a couple of packs knowing that you most likely will discard some of the bends that you make. I hear that the smaller diameter is a bit easier to work with but, was really not that hard after determining how long it takes to heat the PETG to make it soft enough to bend, make your bend and hold it while it cools.

Very nice build. But I have a question: isn't the Power supply choking af? :D

Thank you very much, no actually this picture was taken right after I finished. The cables are now pushed back up under the case corners so cable is not restricting air flow. Also, the back panel is the same as the front, has a perforated slots to allow for air intake and a air filter.

Gaming on a core i9 wow alright interesting choice :). Where’s your drain valve ? And any reason why you have like 5+ fittings on that second cpu connection? Looks like a straightforward connection to me I dunno I might be wrong though Also you’re not listing your watercooling components (fluid blocks etc probably the most important aspect if you want feedback

Looks amazing and love the fans! Why go with a 950 pro?

  • 17 months ago
  • 1 point

Thank you, the 950 pro was a carry over from the non-water cooled build. Once I upgraded to the Asus Rampage VI extreme and expanded to 44 PCI lanes with the i9 7900K, I was able to add a 970 pro 512 GB for the OS and use my 950 Pro for game storage.

Nice fluid, I actually helped a friend fix an old liquid cooled PC with very similar, if not the same fluid.

Nice build! Similar to what I've been thinking about as my next upgrade in a year or two (10c/20t & Titan, but 64gb of ram for GalCiv 3 and ram disk), though not watercooled, too much hassle and I like air more. How are you finding SLI scaling in games?

  • 17 months ago

Thank you, SLI scaling is not worth the additional Titan, specially DX12 games like BF1. Actually runs worse in DX12 with SLI since now it is up to the game developer to include SLI support.

Very cool build.

Did you have any problems w/the 970 Pro and the R6E? I read or saw something about incompatibilities with the R6E and 970 pro, but I cannot find it again. I'm about to order parts, including the 7900x, R6E and 970 Pro, so trying to track down any problems before ordering.

Hi, my apologies for the extended delay in get back to your questions. I am afraid I did have some issues with the UEFI detecting both of the M.2 drives. You just have to configure the proper settings in the BIOS (UEFI). If you do a search on the ROG forum, you can find a post that will walk you thru the settings. But, thank you for the compliments and very best of luck with your new hardware!

Thanks. Yeah, I saw some interesting stuff about 960s with raid and VROC/Intel key issues. Still cannot find much specific to the 970s. Seems several people are using them okay with the RVIE, so I’ll probably stick with that route. Probably only using one 1TB with the DIMM.2 riser.
