Build

ROY 2

by protestjay

Description

Finally got this dude finished, best part of half a year to get it done but the wait was so worth it. thermaltake case is so easy to work with last waterloop I did was in the S340 so this was a breath of fresh air compared to that and not doing any tube bending made this a piece of cake.

not gonna mention much about the specs on this, runs like a 8700K paired up with a 1080ti should,

I know some might be thinking what the hell is going on with the radiator assembly its a bit counter productive but need to say I love it personally but had this idea in my head right from the start.

favourite thing about this though are the fittings, they are from Barrow I was a bit on the fence about getting them at first, having only ever used EK and XSPC fittings I thought these were gonna be sub standard compared to them. but I was so wrong these in my opinion are so much better than EK you get a lot of choice and branding isn't splattered all over them like the rest of them. I think I have become some kind of fan boy about these things now lol.

But Hope you guys enjoy the pics, not much of a photographer, don't really do this build justice.

Cheers,

Jay

Very nice. Love the colours and build and looks like a great setup. Always love me some custom loops, more so when done really nice like this. Easy +1

Yeah agree on barrow fittings. Always used to use bits power but moved to barrow and they feel just as good, look great and no seahorse logo stamped everywhere.

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks man, really happy you appreciate the build and the fittings.

Never got to use bitspower just because of the price tag on them lol, but really apreciate the simplicity of the barrow fittings they are mint.

Nice 'case' PSU seems kinda overkill tho

CooproxXo1 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

How is it overkill? I think it’s perfect for the build and it would probably support another gpu

TheDankKn1ght 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

my main point about the overkill is the 80+ titanium rating

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

to be honest I mainly got the PSU for match the aesthetic of the build. but in my opinion every one should have a decent power supply. 80 + gold upwards and people aren't gonna regret it.

TheDankKn1ght 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I was about to comment about how 80+ titanium PSU's are meant for servers that are running 24/7 but then I saw how much this thing costs overall, so I figured you just wanted to go all out, amirite? XD

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Like I said man purely got this power supply to match the aesthetic of the build, I don't plan on being on it for 24/7 at all, but got myself a good power supply that's gonna last me for years to come.

Outstanding. What a beast.

What was the red/black mobo in the background?

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Cheers man, that is a burnt out mobo I pulled out of a friends PC

Gigabyte Z970 Ultra Durable been repurposed for some decor.

Zetash 2 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Z970. This boi went into the future and got a motherboard 3 generations ahead.

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

haha that's a typo, was supposed to be Z97

Houndour 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

With his newest PC, I think that’s possible.

Qeory 1 point 6 months ago

That's one heck of a feature If I've ever seen one!

+1

DRogGTX 1 point 6 months ago

I LOVE the radiator setup. A normal hard line build is super cool, but when there's something original about it, it just becomes so much better. +1

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks for the love dude, had a great time building that radiator setup. really happy people appreciate it as much as I do!

Scu84St3v3420 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Savage build man!

C3156 3 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Very nice build. My only quip would be using zip ties to support your tubing.

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Haha good spot there man. Had so much sag there, come up with an idea to not use them but didn't think of it till it was filled up

JimmyJimmy 1 point 6 months ago

This deserves a feature

Zetash 2 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Ohh... So instead of a 480 radiator, you went with 4 120s. I must say, I don't think I've ever seen anyone else make that decision, but the style points you got paid off. The tubing looks fantastic this way.

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Thanks man. But your definatly right was a bold decision to go with the 4 120 rads but looks cool as hell. watching those tubes fill up one after the other was fun to watch as well haha.

rudyamaya28 1 point 6 months ago

How do you like the LL series fans with the rad? I was debating on which to get due to static pressure concerns how are your current temps ??

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

The LL series fans are quite decent actually don't know if they perform as good as other fans optimised for static pressure, but I run them at around 50% and temps idol at around 30° on the cpu, thought this was quite good especially for a hot chip that's not been delided, and hit the mid 60°'s when running cinebench under full load at 4.9Ghz

BDoubleP 1 Build 1 point 6 months ago

Breath taking. Absolutely phenomenal man!

protestjay submitter 5 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

That's alot of radiators, but it came out clean so props.

Tub2k10 1 point 2 months ago

Awesome build, Which reservoir/pump combo did you use. I apologize, but i didn't see it in the parts list and it looks like the one that I've been look for.

To be honest man I lost count on how much I spent on fittings and stuff, if you look at the parts list I totally gave up halfway through I didn't even list the waterblock

[comment deleted by staff]
protestjay submitter 5 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

if I was to guess for this build, probably around £500 for the components like the waterblocks pump rads and res. and maybe about the £250 mark for the fittings. but that's just a rough guess.
