Description

This was my first attempt at hard tubing, and my first attempt at dual loops. Basically, I decided to see how large the Thermaltake Core WP100 case was, and it was far bigger than I thought. The GPUs and the CPU are on seperate loops: the GPUs have two 480mm radiators in push/pull in the pedestal of the case, and the CPU has a seperate 480mm in a push configuration at the top of the case.

There are a couple of runs that need some work, but I think it turned out pretty well. Also, it's always nice to see an AMD processor attached to a nice water cooling loop.

WOW... This Build Looks Amazing Bro, Hope You enjoyed building it and hope you have fun. Welcome to the PCMASTERRACE may your frames be high and temps be low. :) Question: Can The extended pedestal Be Used On The Phanteks Enthoo elite Or Can be Only Used for The Thermaltake W100?.

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

I appreciate it. There's still a little work left, but I'm happy the way it turned out. Also, very, very happy that the water decided to stay inside the loops.

Gaming4life22 3 points 19 months ago

Beautiful build mate, but considering you went all out with this why didn't you go for 1080 ti's?

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Appriecaite it! Unfortunately, this build started before 1080Ti's were a thing, otherwise I'd have opted to go that route. :)

ClawMachine881 3 points 19 months ago

Wow. One of the cleanest loops I have ever seen. Though were's that tempered glass? +1

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Thanks! I don't think my desk would've survived if there was tempered glass in this case...lol

Please put your idle and load temps on here. That's an insane setup you've got there.

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Well, right now the CPU is at 3.9GHz with some garbage thermal paste, and both GPUs are overclocked (2164MHz/5350MHz). Also, the thermal paste on the CPU isn't that great, I'll be replacing it hopefully before the middle of August.

  • CPU: Idle 32C, 100% Load (P95) 61C
  • GPUs: Idle 29C/30C, 100% Load (Furmark or Superposition) 37C/38C

Also, thanks, it took a bit of work to get it to the crazy point.

imo name titanic doesnt sound well for a watercooled pc lol the irony, epic build tho, lovin da uv

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

I appreciate it Paddy, it took a bit of effort and still not quite finished as there are a couple of runs that I want to fix on the build. :)

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Hrmm, seems I missed a part in the build as the PSU is an EVGA SuperNova G3 850W power supply. It was a last minute change, but I think it worked out for the best.

Eltech 20 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

No worries, it happens.

Eltech 20 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Holy fans! They should be powerful enough to push and avoid a big iceberg~ What a beautiful build. My one is above seawater for certain.

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 3 points 19 months ago

Yeah, the case came in weighing enough to take on icebergs. I figured it was pretty accurate: made of steel, over engineered, and has more water in it than it should. :)

Eltech 20 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Great, it will never sink! ;)

MightyAlFred 3 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Holy carp! These full ATX cases are surely huge. The radiators might be slightly overkill for what they are cooling, but that's worth it.

Damn beautiful build, and very nice choice of colours for the loops.

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Just slightly. Thanks, I appreciate it :)

WARACING 2 points 19 months ago

Your PC looks amazing and should run every game and content creation program, How difficult was building the water cooling loop?

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

It was difficult, but I think most of it was just me "getting gud" at bending hard tubing. The more bends you have to put in, the more complicated the run gets which translates to: get lots of tubing as you're gonna need it.

Anyone else think this was a caselabs case for a minute?

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Funny you should mention that, it was originally slated to be a CaseLabs build. Unfortunately, they couldn't get me a case in three months so I had to go with another manufacturer. :/

MjolnirThunder 2 points 19 months ago

I would love a shot a building in one of these cases. Well done OP, it looks slick.

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Thanks, appreciate it. It's fun, but the biggest part of this build is literally the case as in: where am I going to put this thing...

KarmAngel 2 points 19 months ago

"It's a beautiful masterpiece" --> 10/10 "I rate this +1"

For sure, this Titanic will not sank ;)

Awesome build ♥

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

I appreciate it! The only this build will sink is the desk that it's sitting on. I'm just waiting for it to tip over and put me in the hospital. ;)

KarmAngel 1 point 19 months ago

Hahahaha :D Now, you need a desk upgrade too! ^_^

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Yeah, it's going to end up either beside the desk, or on some wire shelving. I haven't decided yet, but either way: I'll have a friend help me move this beast because it's too large to move on my own.

KarmAngel 1 point 19 months ago

Hope that you can succeed on that. That beast needs a nice nest to rest :)

There are some places that can sell large desks at affordable prices, but it takes time to find those good deals

Vergere 7 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

is it bad that the only thing I can think of when looking at the bottom of the computer is....

S U C C

Very nice build, I love the photos you took of it!

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking on the pedestal portion. Didn't need to put all that stuff in there, and there are way too many fans, but...it will move all of the air.

Pfffmayne 4 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

that thing is beastly +1

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 19 months ago

Appreciate it, it took quite a bit of work. I've got some fittings on the way to fix a few of the bends. :)

OrbitalBuzzsaw 1 Build 2 points 14 months ago

JEEEEESUS! Dual 480s!? What?

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 1 point 14 months ago

Actually, it's triple 480s as there are two in the basement/pedestal and one at the top of the build. ;) It would explain why the build was a two-person lift to even move.

OrbitalBuzzsaw 1 Build 2 points 14 months ago

New measure of fan speed - rotations per day

SolidDruid 1 point 15 months ago

Beautiful build! I'm curious about your GPU's. I'm using the same MoBo and I've been worried that the PCI-E x8 slot doesn't provide enough power for a PCI-E x16 card. Have you had any problems with using that slot for your second GPU or was it just plug and play?

jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Just plug and play. There's been no issues with PCIe bandwidth on the 8x slot, and the scores I've seen with respect to various benchmarks have been right in line with expectations.

SolidDruid 1 point 15 months ago

Awesome thank you!

mark_ma 1 Build 1 point 14 months ago

Awesome build, very clean. By the looks from the pic, what UV lights are you using? Right now I have the old school cathodes. Looking to getting the uv LED light

Creator_Shadow 1 point 10 months ago

Nice build and i see those 2 bass's and that mesa boogie cab

starjoe1000 1 point 4 months ago

Did you use any wifi cards for ax370 if so please let me know i dont know which one to buy

[comment deleted by staff]
jamesthebard submitter 5 Builds 2 points 19 months ago

I managed to avoid the major icebergs in this build, so I'll take it.

The thought of having a MiniCaprio screaming "I'm kind of the world!" is terrifying...lol
