Description

I've been slowly replacing all my parts over the past few months. The goal was to get the best 21:9 gaming experience possible with a quiet, clean black/white themed setup. Most of the build is pretty straight forward but I ended up doing some custom work.

I knew that the 1080ti was going to be my best option when I started hearing rumors about its release so I started doing research on how I could get it watercooled with an AIO on day one. I found a few people online that had modded the EVGA hybrid kit to fit the Titan XP so I took a risk in picking one up during a sale and making the same cuts to the baseplate. My assumption that it would fit paid off when I saw EKWB confirm that their Titan XP blocks would be compatible with the 1080ti. Release day came, my card got delivered, and after some testing and slight adjustments to my cuts, it fit perfectly. I also knew that I wanted to have the card match my theme so I picked up some matte white vinyl and wrapped some parts on the hybrid shroud as well as the backplate. With the new cooling setup I was able to overclock the card with +165 core, and +450 memory. Under load my temps haven't passed the high 60's.

My 7700k isn't hitting as high of an overclock as many have been getting but I was able to get it to 4.7 without going over 85C during stress tests. I might delid eventually but I really don't see a need for more performance right now.

Overall I can finally say that i'm happy with the setup and plan on leaving it this way for awhile.

Wow, some setup you got there. All top of the line parts and very clean build. What kind of frame rates are you getting with the 1080ti and that Predator monitor?

I think it would look cool if you wrapped the tubes in white electrical tape. This looks great though. +1

What about the tubes wrapped in some white anti-kink coils.

I've seen a lot of people do this but I think it looks cleaner as is.

This is gorgeous. I love a great black/white theme. My ASUS 1080 Ti FE delivers this coming Monday. Your build has inspired me to look at the EVGA Hybrid Cooler for Founders Edition cards. Beautifully well done!

Many reviews said that the FE 1080Ti was running really hot when at max load, which you might reach with the X34 (I don't know, never had enough cash to run a 4k setup) . Is this true? Could you maybe post temps?

Hi, I'm looking to build the same cooling setup (NZXT x52 front and Hybrid as back exhaust). I'm not sure if you're doing it on purpose but is there a better way to arrange the Hybrid radiator tubing so the Hybrid EVGA logo can be seen clearly? Planning to do this on an ITX build. Thanks!

Just changed up how I routed the tubes from the card. New pictures added if you're interested.

I'm actually using the one straight from Nvidia, they just don't have it listed on PCPP so I just used the Gigabyte as a placeholder. All of the FE cards are exactly the same anyway.

Hey mate, i've literally bought the exact same components as you for my new build all minus the water cooler for the GPU. I'm wondering, did you only use two Aer fans? i can only see two pictured? How are you finding the rig so far?

Hey, I have almost the same setup as you do. I have a Corsair H80i and I was planning to set it up as exhaust on top with the EVGA as rear exhaust with two front intakes, but I couldn't fit neither of their radiators on top because of the Asus Maximus Code armor. I want to switch my CPU Cooler and I was thinking to buy the same one as yours. I was just wondering, what's your fan setup? And is your Kraken set as intake or exhaust?

The only thing I worry about is the air flow going to the radiator in this case since it is mostly blocked off. Tell me if the temps are good. Other then that beautiful build and great cable management.

Hey man, I have a question about the kraken x62. I am planning on using corsair ll fans, but I don’t want to replace the fans on the kraken x62, as that would cost me like 80 dollars. Would it be okay if I kept the default fans on the kraken? Or do you recommend me buying the ll fans to put on the radiator. I don’t have a glass front panel so it’s not an issue of asthetics, I’m more concerned about performance.

I'm strongly considering doing this desk setup now. It's so sleek and simple but so much room for stuff.

Hey guy, this looks fantastic. Had a question regarding the desk.

Is that an Ikea type desk build or did you do it custom?
