Description

Wanted to share this here as it’s been in the making for a while. I’ve built quite a few desktops over the years and figured it was finally time to try my hand at a fully liquid cooled build. This build is a hybrid art project and performance experiment, it’s excessive – as all enthusiast projects should be (literally the only reason to watercool your ram lol).

Full spec list is below, CPU is currently overclocked to 4.35 GHz – the most I could get in an afternoon session. Monitor is an LG 144hz 34 inch (https://amzn.to/2JM8ES6), would recommend.

Building a hard line fluid build was definitely an experience, I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a challenge who's built a good number of computers. Hope you all enjoy!

How much time do you think it took you to complete?

4.35 GHz all core? That's impressive. What voltage is that at. Absolutely love the look of this build. I'm sure this will get featured.

This has to be "my top 3" best builds from an aesthetics point of view! If I adopt the custom liquid cooling path for my next Ryzen 3000-series build, I might just pickpocket some of the design elements here.

Who needs RGB when you have an eye for lush with nature to support it. Smashed it, +1 and than some!

Seems someone likes their copper! Awesome build and I think this was the first time I have seen a water cooling loop to use a black coloured coolant. It is like the early 1900s steampunk look merged with the modern PC.

I truly enjoyed looking at this build... Thank you!

Good Job, I like the wood base. The copper tubes and the copper water blocks, give the build a really clean aesthetic I'm actually working on a scratch built wall mount myself, but I've lost my sense of direction with it. I really like your layout, maybe I'll try something simular on mine. What type of wood did you use, is it stained plywood, or real wood like walnut. How did you mount your motherboard, I used 1/8in aluminum plate on mine, I drilled and tapped holes for the motherboard standoffs, to make it is easier on myself to mount the motherboard to the panel. I used 3/16in aluminum plate to make a mount for the power supply. The Bracket is bent at a 90, I drilled, cut, and filed a opening on one side of the plate to give the PSU airflow through the back. Oh and I went AMD as well, Ryzen 5 1600. I'm also going to be water cooling, for aesthetics mainly, I'm content with my performance (EVGA GTX 1070 SC).

It's Inspiring!

Rarely have I been left awestruck by a computer. Beautiful craftsmanship that is deceiving. Excellent job!
