Thanks for checking out my first water-cooled build. I decided to build in a Meshify C despite the space challenges it would present - I love the unique look of the case, and the customizable front mesh.
My goals for this build: Overkill gaming specs @ 2K. Smaller form, clean look. Reasonable temps at a reasonable case noise level. I'm calling it an all-around success!
Overall the toughest part of the build was building a custom mount for the D5 pump and precisely mounting. I found the pipe bending to be fairly simple (patience while heating!), though the GPU is sagging a bit, which I'll want to fix.
I decided to go with a single slim 360mm rad to allow me to go with the ClockWerk reservoir in the back.. Temp calculations proved to be fairly accurate - at stock (no OC's) running games on Ultra, I'm sitting around 10-15C over ambient with minimal fan noise. Temps have maxed during a stress test at 39C. If you are looking to go hard with an OC on your CPU and GPU, this probably isn't the build for you, but I'm fine with that. I will say my one complaint is that airflow noise from my PSU is frustrating when that kicks-on. I might look to replace that in the future.
Thanks for checking out my build!
