I like how you externally mounted the reservoir. Makes it way easier to fill later!
That looks awesome! I know how you feel. I built a watercooled i5-9600K and GTX 1080 in the H200 as well. I am always amazed by the solution people come up with to make the H200 work!
Thanks! It is totally do-able in the H200. At the end of the day... it's very much pick-your-poison. $400 goes a long way!
Also... which gaming mice is that?
Hotness! Which water reservoir is that? Looks hella good!
Ta was trying to be funny/satirical. :D
And correction... us young guys can see a little higher than 30 frames. :P
Looks super clean! I love it!
I have an H200 myself. Ended up with a custom loop cooled 9600K and GTX 1080!
I have a 360mm and a 280mm rad in mine and I am right about where you are. With the extra radiators, I do run my fans as low as they will go though. Good stuff!
Yeah... you probably want to try to move your GPU card to the top-most x16 PCIe slot. Most boards, the other x16 slots don't have the full x16 bandwidth.
Dude... that looks amazing!
Are you running 1x 360 rad or 2? And the bends look hella clean!
Build looks super clean! Good stuff!
I used the Rockit Delid kit. I think it'll take you about an hour to do. Directions are on YouTube. Just take your time. A lot of it is scraping off the old adhesive between the PCB and the IHS.
Delidding isn't that hard, and I definitely think it is worth it. I would also look at the Rockit upgraded IHS. That is probably good for a few degrees as well.
82 C at 5Ghz pre-delid is super solid. You totally won the silicon lottery.
Yeah. Same here. I can do 5.1ghz on all cores no problem. But can't do 5.2ghz on all cores under full load. Might be able to find some more computing power with "per core" overclocking... but... just decided to ease off to 5.0ghz for ease and reliability.
Nothing wrong with 70 C. There's 30 C worth of headroom before thermal throttling. Even 80 C is reasonable.
Nice! What type of temperatures are you getting on the CPU under load? 5ghz is pretty solid! Did you try pushing it further?
My 8700K can do between 5.1 and 5.2ghz, but I backed it off a little for reliability. I think under full load, my CPU is running about 70 C.
Build looks super clean! Kudos!
Also, could you have stepped up to a 240mm radiator and only run one fan? I've seen someone else do that with an Asus 1070/1080 Strix card. Not sure if that worked with the 20-series.
Wow. Looks like the GTX 2070 barely fits! Both length and width wise! Good stuff!
Your rig looks cute!
Not on a 9700K.
My 8700K (6C/12T) OC'ed to 5ghz scored 1,644. My 9600K (6C/6T) OC'ed to 4.9ghz scored 1,172. My i7-5930K (6C/12T) OC'ed to 4.4ghz scored 1,288.
Feels like you are ballpark.
EK Fluid Gaming (https://www.ekfluidgaming.com/parts/) has a bunch of parts.
Thanks! Not quite sure where the upper limit is, but I guess we'll find out. I think there's still a bit of room to work with. We'll see!
I hear you. I did a custom loop in my H200i. Nearly pulled my hair out.
But yeah... it's about the journey. You know you are going to run into trouble at some point. There's just something about undertaking the journey even though you know that it isn't that great of an idea. Lol.
Looks awesome!!! I am always amazed by the ITX and M-ATX custom loop builds!
5.2ghz is excellent! You got a really good chip! I can only get upto 5.1ghz on my 8700K.
All-in-one cooler (closed-loop water cooling).
Wow. That looks amazing!!! I love it!
That's hot! The whole set-up and everything!
Nice! I am curious as to how you mounted the pump/res on the exterior.
Wow! Super clean! Kudos!
Base clock on the 4790K is 4.0ghz. Max turbo is 4.4?? Something like that. I think 5.7 is kind of stretch at the moment. Keep in mind that 1 core turbo vs. 4 core turbo. I think 4.4ghz is when only one core turbos. I think if it was 4 cores trying to turbo, I think each would be closer to 4.0ghz.
Uh... maybe it is just me, but... did you install the M.2 SSD correctly? I thought it is suppose to be parallel to the rest of the board.
Looks way awesome!
Nice build! Nothing wrong with soft tubing, though hard tubes look amazing! Both have their benefits!
Hot damn! Lol. Awesome sauce!
Do you think you could get away with 2x 360's versus 3x360's?
Just curious. Just trying to see where it really starts to diminish. I have two rigs, one is a 8700K OCed to 5gh and a GTX 1070 (on a 360 and 280mm radiator) and a 9600K/GTX 1080 (on a 240 and 120mm) and the temps on the 9600K/GTX 1080 seem to be about the same as the 8700K/GTX1070.
3x 360's. Oh baby...
Please share your temps! I bet they are really good!
That looks amazing!!! Good stuff!
I love how clean the NZXT hardware looks! Good stuff!
Yeah... I think nVidia support for Freesync monitors comes out tomorrow or something. Awesome that you have a certified monitor. I saw some videos of some non-certified monitors and the image quality is garbage. I am still keeping my fingers crossed that support will be better as time goes by.
Looks great! I think you did really well in staying in your budget. You can always upgrade in the future when the prices of stuff gets better. Two easy upgrades could be an AIO for overclocking and M.2 NVMe SSD for more space. Both very easy to upgrade to when you are ready.
Build looks awesome! Very nice!
You definitely have some headroom with the 8700K. The real limiting factor is the IHS. You can easily get 10 degrees from delidding and using liquid metal. I think 4.9ghz or 5.0ghz can definitely be a thing with liquid metal. Maybe a little lower if you decide not to.
So hot! So clean! Wow.
Looks clean! Would you be willing to delid the CPU? I think it really helps with temps.
Oh baby! Looks awesome! Temps look great! I just got my waterblock and backplate in the mail and can't wait to finish my custom loop.
Hey! Congrats on your first build! Don't worry about not being able to do everything you wanted to do. There's nothing wrong with building out your rig over a period of time. The adventure is actually in the build process, whether you are trying to bling your system out, or stuff as much stuff into the smallest case as possible, or go to value town! It's a little different for everyone, but I think most people can definitely agree that the hands on portion is the most fun part.
Your build looks really solid. I think if you wanted to squeeze a little more power out of the system, you could try delidding and overclocking. Doesn't even have to be an aggressive overclock.
Nice! I can't view the links from work, but I am excited to see it. My H200i build is a custom loop. Still waiting on the GPU waterblock, but excited to expand on it. Lol.
That's hot! Great job on getting everything to fit!
Congrats on your first build! Rig looks super clean!!
