Description

This build is a reworked build I uploaded a few months ago, but since then have upgraded some parts and redone my loop. I feel that the pastel blue contrasts the completely black build very well, and although the Corsair sp120's come with a blue ring I had to custom paint these for an exact match. I have put a lot of work in so far and cant wait to see how it evolves.

Looks great. Proves I can be satisfied without hard tubing. Love the color combo. +1

Thanks! I think eventually it will be hard tubing, but I thought if I put the effort in I could make this look pretty good without it. You're not the first to say something like that so I think I did a good job.

Why did you buy a hybrid 980ti instead of a reference cooler designed one to save some money? It would have been watercooled either way in your setup.

I bought the hybrid when it first released and at the time i had no intention of making a custom loop. After a while I decided a custom loop was something I wanted to do and I made the change. I still had it as a hybrid solution for months before hand.

disgusting. j/k holy **** the best looking minimalist custom loop i've seen, period. if you upload more pics and add more LEDS for marinelli, this should get featured :D

Nice build! Looking forward to doing some custom watercooling in my own H440as soon as I get some money :(

Black and blue can be very bad or very good, and you made it look awesome! +1

really good build!

Nice cable mangement! The blue and black theme also looks really nice! Nice custom panted rings on the fans!

If u know how to do it i would consider looking into some hard tubing!

I think I will upgrade to rigid down the road, but I'll probably put it off until my next component upgrade since I'd be draining it anyways.

How do you like that monitor? I'm pretty dead set on getting it when I get the gtx 1080

Absolutely get it, I love it. You'll see price drops all the time if you keep an eye on it.

really sweet build. would you mind putting up another photo of the front rad part? i'm looking to do a custom loop in my H440 and i'm curious how the res and rad all fit there in front while having a second 360mm rad in the top, haven't seen anyone do that yet

  • 43 months ago

So I saw this and gave getting a picture a shot, but with how everything is set up there is no good way to do this. But I can probably just answer any questions you have. I had to go with a thin radiator up top to be able to get it to fit with fans and the other radiator cant be too thick either. I think that anything exceeding the dimensions of the EK radiators would be too big. I had to remove all of the HDD brackets and drill into the panel that they would attach to in order to mount the pump res combo, you can see that in picture 2. The top thin radiator absolutely needs to go in first with fans already attached or you'll never get them both in. If you take a look at the orientation of the radiators and match that you should have no issues getting everything in, but you'll need to really plan it all out and be patient since it is a massive pain in the *** to work in such a restrictive case.

thank you very much, i have seen some people equipping one of the top rad fan spots with a slim sythe fan or leaving it out altogether so nice to see i don't have to go with such a half*ssed solution. my other plan was to get an EK predator 360 for the front to save myself the whole pump and res mounting hassle but then i surely can only get a 280 in the top.

  • 43 months ago

As long as the top rad plus fan stay within 55mm you'll be fine but you definitely need to put the top radiator in first or it won't work. The EK predator is also an option, but I feel like it wouldn't be as satisfying.

  • 43 months ago

thanks, yeah the predator isn't as fancy but saves you the hassle of getting a pump and res tucked away somewhere which is pretty tempting

What is the cooling difference between a watercooled GPU with a 240MM rad and this hybrid one? Never seen one before.

  • 43 months ago
  • 2 points

Well it was a hybrid one, its not anymore. The hybrid one just wasn't performing well and i wanted to do a custom loop anyways so i ended up with this. The hybrid card only has a blower fan on the vram with a 120mm rad for the gpu core so the power delivery could get pretty hot where as this custom loop has the vram cooled by the water block. In the end it made higher overclocks stable

Super clean :D I love it, and it looks amazing with the window on

+1 one of the best single card loops I've seen in quite some time

Awesome build the loop looks incredible! Only thing I'm wondering is why you went with the more expensive 980 to hybrid if you were going with a custom loop anyways? Other then that the parts are crazy good and and amazing PC in all

  • 43 months ago

Truth be told, when I got the 980TI Hybrid i had no interest in doing a custom loop. It took months of having the card before I decided it was something I should try, but I still feel like i got my moneys worth out of the Hybrid portion of the card.

That pastel looks so cool. I was wondering about them because I've heard nothing but bad things about them. How they turn a different color after a few months or how they will gunk up the loop. Is this brand new or do you have some experience with pastel coolants? Also is the concentrate worse then the already mixed coolant or is there no difference? I know a loaded question why make pastels if they are so bad for your loop. I just have interest in putting pastels in my loop. +1

  • 43 months ago

This is my first time with Pastels, but I feel like with a lot of things in life those issues come from user error. The premix is just concentrate mixed into distilled water for you so you don't have to worry about it so there is no real difference. If you want to try it, go for it :)

Love that Cyan color in your rig. I have a question about the mobo. Does the straight SATA connectors bother you? I personally wished that those SATA ports are all right angled. Would love some feedback from ya about the board. Thank you! :)

  • 43 months ago

Well, it doesnt bug me at all. Truth be told I never even thought about it until you said something haha. There are right angled sata ports on there, but at one point i needed to unplug my sata cable and plugging it back in with the watercooling already in place was just easier with one of the ports that was facing straight up. Im suprised you even noticed.

I got a little bit of OCD. So, I tend to notice things that are not in order. XD What OC are you running on your 6700K? Why did you buy a 980ti hybrid if you were to watercool it? LOL I'm currently in the planning stage of my very first pc to replace my 8 year old laptop. Going for a silver and black build.

  • 43 months ago
  • 1 point

The 6700k is running at 4.6, I think I can get 4.7 but it's so stable where it is and I'm pretty happy with it. When I got the hybrid I had no intention of doing a custom loop, over time I eventually decided it was something I wanted to try and gave it a shot. I'm glad I did.
