nice,im gonna order it tomorrow i think.i got the EK Xres with a 240 res, and didnt know if i was gonna have to drill to mount it to the wall inside or use a bracket off the rad,does it have mount holes on the wall,i couldn't tell.its awesome they have a drain port,mine was a pain in the arse to drill with a step bit lol.thx for the info and awesome build bro!!!
hows the new R6 case?really thinking of buying one and this makes me feel it'll be a great case for a nice loop that i need to move from my corsair 540...great job on this build bro,got the 1+ from me on this beauty??
no soft tube is gonna run lines that straight at the height some are at in this build
beautiful build,bro!!!usually not a big fan of white,but you just did it so good and it looks amazing!one of the best loops ive seen on here for a good while....dont ya just hate when CPU to GPU isn't a nice straight shot thou.lol...ya got 1+ from me on this awesome build again...thx for sharing it with us:)
most of their CPU blocks are in-left/out-right,wish they would switch it,which you totally can,loop order really does not matter,i mad a run using crazy runs off all kinds and it was never but 1-2-3c difference
love your build,bud...one thing you could mess with next time ya flush the loop is to try to redo 2,maybe 3 of those runs,i think their fine as is,just my personal little peeve,lol.great job thou man thins thing is pretty awesome!!!1+ from me on this one=D
yeah,i agree,this will work in the mean time,but good to have some head room:)550 is what id toss in this guy,personally i always get a 750-760 or so just so i know im good for upgrades and what not.
i hear ya,that how my 4790K was,and those were cool running chips for the most part,and i had a similar AIO,i delidded and got the corsair h100i and it nerver went above 50c-55c,your get their,bro....good luck and again,nice build:)
oh,good build btw almost forgot!!lol
yeah bud,get at least a 240 or a 280,a 360 would keep that nice and cool,buy a delid kit and some LM and your see that little cooler work way better bud.
wish i had friends to build me a 2 grand pc!!!lol.great job and your friend will be super stoked!!!
cant say i ever saw a soft tube run the looks "better" than hardline,just imo thou,theses runs look very good i must say,but nice hardline really makes a build shine!!!cheers everyone and have a awesome day!!!!
itll look much sharper if ya get in there and get a cpl zip ties and manage those cables some and route them to be hidden as much as you can,great build,itll last ya a good while and play game great!!
great build,bro,this thing will hold up for a good long while and ya made it look really good,cable management is on point,this would look really sweet with a custom loop on it with the vertical card like that,im getting the fractal R6 here soon and im gonna redo all my tubing to have it set up vertical as well,does that side panel cut back the airflow with it being that close to a surface or does it stay at good temps for you?
de-lidded and applied thermal grizzly LM and a custom loop,i dont keep it their,it went thru synthetic benchmarks just fine,but if i run a cpu intensive game it'll bluescreen eventually,not always,but it can at times,so i dont consider that stable.its at 4.9 now and everything is fine and it idles at 27c and around 42-45c after 4-5-6 hours of heavy gaming.itll go to 65c-70c with stress test after 12 hours.
yeah,its something like that,think it may get up to 23XX or 24XX if ya manually set your timings,which i always do,i know amd is a little finicky thou with their ram issues right now. def not the 3200 they built for,as of now anyways,not sure if it'll ever get to the speed this set of dimms can push.
man,those sausages look mighty tasty!!!only time i got hungry checking out PC's lol.awesome build!!!1+
you did this just right.man...its awesome.just as ThriftStoreRaider said,all this flashy RGB nowadays is just to much,pcs look like a toddlers toy,nice white and RAm colors you have look awesome!!!great build man 1+!!
that ram is good,it'll work for either AMD/Intel,just bot gonna get those 3200 speeds which stinks,but i digress
lol...was thinking the same thing.nice bld tho OP:)
a little to "bright" for my own taste,but man you nailed this thing PERFECT for a 1st build and 1st hardline run!!!!i can tell ya took your time and def did alot of homework on what ya wanted and how to do it,and sir,you did a bang up job!!!this thing is the ****!!!1+ for this beauty!!
yeah,if ya look at my build,was my 1st time doing any watercooling and had some bends not looking the way i wanted them to be,if ya go to home depot/lowes,you can buy some tubing pretty cheap,it wouldnt be the perfect fit for your fittings but the insert will fit in them fine,its great practice and its cheap as heck!!
good job for the 1st run,glad ya went hardline,looks so much better,and going soft tube,just makes ya eventually wanna rip it apart and put hard tube.lol.1+ from me
awesom,bro...one of the better loops ive seen in awhile...1+ from me man,that should treat ya mighty fine for a good bit:)
yeah,that would look good,i took the pins out of a st once and sprayed them lightly and they actually looked really good!!no sleeving but they were all solid black and blended much nicer,give a shoot,even if ya just tape off pci connectors that would work!
great build,man.something that would really make this shine would be some blk custom cables,or whatever colors you would like,ketchup and mustard cbls drive me nuts.hahaha,
that one he has is the crimson vue fluid,they got a good bit of them tho
thats the newer VUE fluid,way better than most pastel type fluids!good stuff
thats the newer VUE fluid,its supposed to look like that,its good stuff!
this looks sick,bro!!!awesome job on your first hardline run,i think it looks awesome and would leave it the way it is,took me like 6 tubes b4 a got certain runs to look good,thats a harder run there to the cpu and if ya nailed that on 1st run thats awesome,man!you got my 1+
i was impressed with that as well considering ya got that on air!!!
great build man!!!and super awesome pictures,beautiful!!1+
isnt acrylic glass?i used other hardline tubes but i thought acrylic was perry much like glass,your pc is amazing bro!!awesome job:) 1+
yeah,8GB use to be fine,for some titles it still is,but 16gb is seeming to be the new "norm",im glad i bought a 32GB kit b4 DDR4 went thru the roof,the kit i got was $200 and todays price is 900 bucks almost for the ram i have now,its disgusting,and graphic cards are ridiculous now as well,but that'll change hopefully soon
In 2016 where could you pick up a i7-8700K or a X370 board?this system will be sustained with this psu until he puts the psu he wants in there,but to run this PSU and no intention with upgrading it is not a good idea to me,i like to feel safe with the one piece of hardware that literally is the heart of every component in a bld,and something that has good reviews and is well known for being good!not some good here and lots of bad here,the systems you bld this would be fine,but this system needs a better 12V rail and 5V rail,that PSU has less than desirable ratings for all rails ,i mean a +12V@46A,thats garbage bro,10 years ago this PSU was okay,but,hey,to each his own,love and respect guys and OP i like this bld,keep up the good work!!!!
hey,cant blame ya there,prices of stuff lately is crazy,just do piece by piece if ya gotta,at least ya can buy that way and test everything instead of,say,blding a pc part by part and setting it up to find something needs rma and its past the 30 day RMA and ya gotta deal with Manaf's,their usually a pain to deal with.lol.awesome pc thou,man,should treat ya good for a good while!1+:)
nothing,just for all the high end components in your bld,figured ya would have something besides a budget PSU for a almost $1500 build.idk.good bld thou.adios:)
not alot of ppl are into the open(in this case-somewhat open case)id build in one if the right case caught my eye,but ppl with pets,or dusty climate,most likely dont wanna have the dust dander harir to clean off so much as maybe 2 times a month with a closed off case.i like your snow bld BTW.
gotta get rid of that PSU,other than that good pc:)
oh yeah,its addictive and very fun,especially once ya start getting into tinkering with water!then ya gotta get even more creative when planning things out,nothing like building a pc of any type whether gaming or workstation ect...,their just fun!!!cheers and hope your enjoy your rig,bro!!1+:)
very nice,definitely made it hidden which is nice,and usually hard to do without a dual bay case but you pulled it off wonderfully!
nice red menace!!I have a build in here with the same name.lol.good build thou,looks nice:)
nice loop,looks great!!!1+ from me:)...only thing I can notice that id of done different is put a drain port in there,its a pain to do your loop every 7-8-9 months and not have a drain port,i didn't do one on my first custom loop(added it later thou!!),but ya can toss a T splitter or X splitter and easily add one when next fluid change is due,great build again,bro,everything is really nice and clean looking and great cable management back there as well.cheers and enjoy!!
just go hard,your dump all that cash and then once you realize after 6 months "this need to be hardline tubbing"ya gotta dump mony back into all the fittings,and that's where all the costs really come from when building a loop,just buy pieces here and there,get all your rads,then pump/res,then what gauge tubing 12/10mm is awesome to work with,you can get the 1000 cm crystal tube,once you know what card and cpu your have then get cpu and gpu blocks and let your mind do the work!petg is so cheap ya can buy 4-6 tubes just to fu** up,thats what I did and then I had no issues,i promise ya hard tube is very easy!ive never done soft tubing,and I'm a newb at it,so that's saying in itself how simple it is!lol.your get there bro,stuff aint cheap,but look for deals,just don't buy a bunch of different companys items,try to stick to one or two for the whole thing.
try to get your rads/blocks/fitting from a company that use all high grade copper,stay away from aluminum esp for your cpu block,and even MORE if you use liquid metal TIM as it eats away aluminum,just is a magnet for water to oxidize making a leak more prone to have damaged to components caused by conductive fluid,the longer the water flows over aluminum the more conductive it becomes,its fine for the most part,some are more picky than others and use products that don't mesh with certain metals,which all make water conductive eventually!lol.nice chatting with ya and looking forward to seeing your build when ya get it done:)
I did mine on a 1070,now a 1080 gaming x,with the temps I can get I can push it till it performs almost good as a 1080ti,but no prob,they were in my cart bc I'm getting more soon for 2 new builds for friends..if ya do a loop lemme know,love checking out custom loops just bc ya don't see a whole lot on here lately.cheers!!
if you doing a loop id suggest these over whats in that case...Thermaltake Pacific Temperature Sensor G 1/4 Digital Display with Alarm CL-W151-CU00BL- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06Y3N4NN6/ref=nav_timeline_asin?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 ,theres lots of different brands,whats in that case is something like this BXQINLENX Celsius LCD Temperature Meter - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ESR10NG?psc=1
again,you can find tons a different variants of both these items,search around and find what ya like is the best plan,and then research the crap out of it so ya don't have something that is dead in a few months.cheers!!:)
id see if you can find a 970 card over the 1050,i have both,by asus,and the 970 kills the 1050 for gaming.
buy 3 extra fans,2 for front intake and one for rear exhaust,whatever kind you prefer really,id grab some corsair ML120 PRO 120mm PWM Premium Magnetic Levitation Fan,their good and quiet unless over 80%,you wont need them that high tho,you could also front mount a 240mm AIO cooler to the front or a 120mm to the back,or go air,water is just the only way I go nowadays,just IMO.
