After two months of planning, creating 3D renders just to visualize my loop, waiting for parts, asking people left and right for advice, overheating tubes and overbending them, filling and draining and spilling water everywhere, my first custom hardline watercooled PC is complete!

It's been quite an adventure, and in the 8 years I've built PCs I've never really spent so much time on one build. And sure, it's not a fancy quadruple radiator, 3-way SLI, gold plated fittings build but I didn't want that. I wanted something that was simple. And clean. And pretty. And this build was just that. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or hit me up on Instagram <3

== FAQ ==

What's up with the pricing? Why was your 1080 Ti $1,300? I got this GPU from Amazon during the great GPU crisis of early 2018. I wanted to keep the prices of all the components I got exactly as it was on the receipts.

Why did you go with an X370 board when you have a 2nd gen Ryzen? This build was mostly aesthetics and I wanted a white motherboard AND I needed something that was compatible with EK's monoblocks. This motherboard was the only one.

I heard PrimoChill Vue causes issues. Why did you pick that coolant? PrimoChill Vue is a high maintenance coolant, and if the proper steps are taken you can avoid problems. It took almost a week of preparation: 24 hours of PrimoChill SysPrep and 72 hours of PrimoPrep along with plenty of flushing and cleaning to ensure the best performance. A majority of people having issues with Vue either didn't care to follow the instructions or didn't do it correctly.

What temperatures are you getting with this setup? My idle CPU temps are 24C, with my GPU around 22C. You can see a screenshot here.

Corsair LL fans aren't static pressure optimized. Why did you go with those? As I mentioned before, this build was mostly an aesthetics build I prefer the look of the LL fans. Even then, with testing I did with Thermaltake Riing (static pressure fans) I was only seeing a couple degree differences.

What camera did you use to take these pictures? I used a Sony A7S II with the 24-70mm 2.8 GM lens. This camera has mindblowing low light capabilities and you can probably see for yourself what I mean by that. The b-roll video was also shot with this camera.

Is this build final? What else are you planning on doing with it? No, I plan on revisiting this build with better sleeved cabling and possibly a distro plate installed somewhere. Check/follow my Instagram for updates, the link to it is above.

Yeah, i've seen it quite a bit, but I sure do wish we could have processors with clock speeds in the penta-hertz, as seen with this bug.

Awesome build bro! Take my +1 Meanwhile I'm stuck now deciding between getting 2nd Gen Stuff now for my build or waiting for a few months for 7nm Ryzen and GPUs even though the part list I currently have took me months to put together and waiting =(

CableMod, PSU cables were way too stiff and the combs that came with it were too tight.

So what are the temps under load and at what fan rpm ?What are your OC ?

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

CPU is 55-58C and GPU is 49-52C after an hour of Ghost Recon Wildlands. No overclocks. Not sure about fan RPM but it's super silent.

  • 12 months ago

Why not OC ? I’m just trying to gauge temps and fan speed with a single 360 rad.

Don't need it with the 2700X lol. Also, it's a 420mm rad haha.

I want to build this pc, but there are a lot of potential issues. Should I ignore it?

  • 12 months ago
  • 2 points

First issue is easy, just buy a $50 A6 and use that to update the BIOS to support the 2700X. Second issue has to do with the length of the GPU. Mine was pretty long, but a majority of cards will be fine. And this ONLY becomes an issue if you mount it horizontally. If you mount it vertically it can be any length you want. Third and fourth issue is fine as long as you don't have too many drives.

This is an awesome bild and I wish to have the skill to build a liquid cooled one just as slick and nice as this build. At the moment, for my first build I am starting out with a budget of 700 dollars and its pretty good. But again, this was an awesome build no matter how expensive.

Really clean build. I would've went with a horizontal mounted GPU since it's watercooled, as there isn't much aesthetics when you have a vertical mounted gpu that's watercooled. But that's just my opinion. +1

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks! I vertically mounted it because of three reasons: 1. the GPU waterblock didn't come with a backplate nor is there one available (as far as I know) so if I had it mounted traditionally (horizontal) it would've exposed the ugly PCB 2. the length of the card interfered with the radiator/fans 3. I wanted the water channels to be visible as the Vue coolant flowed through them and vertically mounting was the only way that could happen without having to look at the underside of the card, if that makes sense :)

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Fair enough. It's just that you have a great looking motherboard, and I thought that the GPU was hiding the MOBO from all its glory. :)

Heads up that Primochill Vue stuff doesn't just require preperation to keep it from messing up your system -- it needs maintenance. I ran it in a gaming rig and the chemicals broke down and caused huge problems. Turns out the issue was as simple as running the pump at a higher speed than Vue can withstand.

  • 12 months ago
  • 2 points

Correct. I'm running the pump at a constant 10% speed and allowing Vue to run a bit warmer. I also made sure to turn my system off every night since Vue isn't made to be a 24/7 running coolant.

i was going for a white build too thanks. you gave me some great tips and advice through your build too consider while building mine. way better than i would ever be able too do. one other question though if you where spending that much on water cooling than why not go with 2 gpus. stock, price, motherboard not support sli, etc???
