Description

This was my second-ever build, completed in June of 2018. It was my first time working with rigid tubing and any sort of water-cooling at all. It was a lot of fun and there were a lot of screw-ups but I think it turned out great.

I chose the H700i as I was a huge fan of the S340 Elite even though the "deep learning" stuff seemed super gimmicky. The case itself had really good cable routing and a neat tray for the Micron 1100 2TB SSD that I vinyl-wrapped in some cheap carbon fiber-style stuff. It also had ample space for the EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 (I did not realize how long it was) and the reservoir next to it.

Liquid cooling thing was an entirely different story. I almost didn't want to talk about how badly I messed up once. I was filling the loop when there was a bubbling noise somewhere in the PC. It turns out that there was liquid coming out the back of the reservoir and just barely missing the power supply! This major mess-up was entirely my fault and in no part whatsoever EKWB's error. I think I untightened the acrylic housing from the base when I was installing it.

On a final note, the amount of RAM was completely necessary for my use; having 10 tabs of Chrome open- but I seriously wanted to "future-proof" my PC for the next half-decade, if that's still a thing.

I want to know thing about your build and i am confused about the liquid cooler like many building use this thing You use the liquid go to radiator and then go to motherboard ok that's fine, and then go to the CPU then go to GPU when he go to motherboard the liquid will be hot, Then the liquid go to the CPU, then you give the CPU liquid hot, then when is in the CPU liquid will be more hot, and then you send to GPU. you give to your GPU liquid more hot it is work perfect, not brok your CPU or GPU ?
