Description

This was my very first computer build that I complete about a year ago. Yes I know i don't need that many fans but it was really into the Riing fans when they first came out. So far I've been using this build for gaming and some video editing on my free time. Unfortunately I will be replacing this computer soon as it not fit in my next place of residence. I will keep it for a future watercooling project down the road.

Looking for some suggestions on watercooling....good starter kits..? Soft tubing to start with or just go for hard tubing and learn to bend it? Just a little nervous with leaks.

Looks great! Normally I don't like LEDs all over the place, but you've gone so overboard that it works.

As for custom loop watercooling, the only concern you could/may have is the pricetag. Things can get a little expensive. I wouldn't worry too much about leaks. If your loop doesn't leak to start with (you can pressure test it and leak test it by blowing into your drain/fill valve before filling, and/or fill it with water respectively to test the loop), it's highly unlikely it will leak.

I wouldn't let hardline sway you. If you don't mind the look of soft, go for that because it is a little easier. The main factor that comes into play with hardline is the research involved. You will need to get familiar with a lot more terminology and processes. However, with a few YouTube videos and reading of forum posts, you should be good to go. Chances are if you become obsessive over it as you get enthusiastic for what your final product will look like, you'll want to spend time getting familiar with what you need.

Oh fancy meeting you here, bud.

walks away trying not to be awkward

Obsessive definitely helps you get familiar with a lot of pc building lingo/processes.

LOL. That's the first time I've ever heard of going overboard as being better.

The RGB really makes this look alive! I do agree that a water cooling loop would make use of all that available space and I think just some proper research on forums and videos should get you going.

Alphacool make decent kits with 5" bay reservoir, all size. But imo waterblock is ugly. EKWB make good kits but limited to 360mm max. May you mix EKWB and Alphacool, with all the clearance you got here, go big, alphacool monsta rad in white.

Cheers. +1 and good luck for your next project

I have never seen so many fans. You can hook a vacuum hose port to it and make it self cleaning. Seriously though it does look cool.

Looks great mate! Love that RGB strip club theme ;) Are those fans any good? I need some new fans for my build in the NZXT s340 because im only using the stock fans and one of them broke... -_-

They are not bad. I'm waiting to try the new AER fans that i got on my Kraken x62 for my Mini-Itx build. The only thing I don't like about the RGB ones is you can only have 3 per controller. Kinda bulky and annoying to mount. If you get the solid color ones you won't have to worry about that. The airflow is decent but they would make better rad. fans with them being hsp fans.

Thermaltake sure make some oddly designed cases.

Question for you: is there any other way to mount the mobo? I ask because I was thinking of getting this case & buying RGB memory. However, there'd be no point of getting RGB memory if it's going to be blocked by the GPU. Thanks.

Not sure where you are now 9 months down the road but if you are still looking to go to watercooling, EKWB has their liquid gaming lineup now, you can get a full loop for your system for way under half the price of getting a copper loop, and they do all the hard work for you, you just have to make sure you don't buy any upgrades for your loop that are copper/brass/nickel. I know thermaltake's radiators are pretty nice and they are aluminum/zinc which will work nicely with the liquid gaming parts and they are HUGE and would be perfect for your case.
