Description

Update from previous build:

GPU: Strix 1060 to Strix 1070

ADD: EK-CoolStream PE 120 (Single) 38mm thick (front of case) Bitspower GPU waterblock

Why using Bitspower Block instead of EK GPU waterblock.

  • RGB
  • RGB can be controled with Asus software
  • You can keep the stock Asus backplate

This GPU waterblock is amazing to compare with the stock cooler.

Stock cooler temp underload = 82 C Under Bitspower waterblock = 44 C

Those HD120 LED give hard time to my iphone camera!!

Wow, the thing which stands out most is that you can keep the backplate on the GPU, really makes it pop!

I've got to say, personally soft-tubing looks far better than hard line ;) nice job with the colour coordination too.

Easy +1

What desk is that? I've been looking for a nice glass corner desk, but I can't seem to find one that fits my aesthetic.

Fantastic build! Did you replace the stock corsair fan controller with the HD rgb fan controller? Same spot? I would ask for cable management pics because 570x but I know it's a semi nuisance/pain to add pics but again this case...

maxou200 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Yes i replaced the SP120 controller for the HD120 controler at the same spot.

I will add pics soon :)

jakesno 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks for the confirmation. Your build is inspiring, and I am number 37 on your upvotes.

maxou200 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Just added some new pics with the other side.

Also changed the coolant for pasytel white, added some new fitting and white cable.

Enjoy!

Hey man, where did you place the RGB LED controller for the fans? I'm currently buying parts for a build with the same case & fans.. Btw, Beautiful build :)

maxou200 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

thanks :)

I just take off the Sp120 controler and replaced for the HD120 at the same place.

I used magnetic 3M band so i can move it easily.

You dont have to replace the HUB.. its the same HUB for HD120 and SP120.

ITheSinister 2 points 8 months ago

Sweet, I'll do the same thing then.. Thank you,

Yess distilled water only!

The temperature is amazing but the temp of my cpu could be better i bought some new GELID Solutions GC-Extreme i hope to win some degree.

Just some anti-growth and corrosion agent in Distilled water?

maxou200 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Only distilled Water and silver Coil! No corrosion agent... coolant is wast of money!

JTMC93 1 point 8 months ago

You still want anti-corrosion and anti-growth additives. As spores can be inside the tubing and other components. And silver will still corrode with water and heat. Especially if it is Silver Alloys which given pricing that most likely is.
