Description

Monster build I made showcasing of the open air design of the Thermaltake Core P90 case. Custom loop EKWB that cools the CPU and the Maximus X Formula motherboard. Only issue I had was mounting the pump/reservoir because the included mounting bracket only supported a base mounted pump/reservoir, so I had to drill holes in the side of the case to mount it.

For the record, coffee and monster aren't a good combination.

that is one expensive GPU! have you thought about doing hard line loop? those look super sexy in that case ;D

First attempt at water cooling so I thought I'd keep it simpler by going with soft tubes

thats a kingpin though.. its a binned GPU by EVGA meant for extreme overclocking.. those are usually even without minning super expensive

Oh my... Truly monstrous. I LOVE IT!

I'm new to building to begin with and have 0 experience with liquid cooling, so this might be a dumb question but was the reservoir able to be placed elsewhere? Just so your tubing can be a bit less all over the place around the fans?

Technically yes, but would require a lot more case modification and drilling.

Im working on my second loop. First one I jumped right into hardline. Totally worth it. And you definitely need to block the 1080ti.

Great monster! +1

Yeah I definitely want to block the GPU,hard part for me is finding one for it.

Oh and I was looking at your card... Would be a waste to ditch that stock cooler. That copper heatsink and fans is a great setup. The future of stock coolers. Probably. Temps must be nice

I have a gigabyte gaming 1080 ti and I had a hard time finding one also. Had to order from China

If you do so mount it vertically for maximum awesomeness.

WOW!!! NIce job!

I was thinking that these open cases would be a pain when it comes to dust, but the more I CLEAN my regular PC, the more I realize how easy it would be to get the dust off one of these open cases.

Your thoughts?

Exactly my thoughts, this will be much easier to just datavac everything out.

Normally I don't like the look of soft tubing but I must say it looks really good in your build.

How was your ram I am about to order the same stuff?

2 questions:

Are you going to SLI it? Would that work for the case?

Are the fans on your RAD pulling or pushing?

Beautiful build man

Hot damn man, a kingpin 1080ti? I would love to have one of those but the extra money I just couldn't justify. I'm not a hardcore overclocker so it makes no sense for me anyway :P I went with the Evga sc version of the 1080ti. Gorgeous build tho! You did an amazing job.

First time ordering and installing WC and just went with the EKWB configurator. But yeah I need to get a bigger reservoir for sure and is on my edit list, as well as the tube that is too tight. The case comes with a horizontal optional plate that a base mounted pump screws into(and that has pre-drilled holes) As for the Kingpin i just had to go all out cause i was already too deep lol
