Description

This is v3.0 of Unicorn Milk. So what has changed since v2.0? Well, I got a new EVGA DG-86 case, upgraded to an EVGA 1000w T2 PSU, and picked myself up another EVGA GTX 1080ti... If it isn't obvious by now, I'm a HUGE EVGA fanboy. I was pretty bummed when I found out the EVGA HB SLI bridge in the spacing that I needed was out of stock. Not to mention literally a day after I completed v3.0 EVGA announced the release of their Z370 Classified K motherboard. However no one makes a monoblock for that motherboard yet, so maybe in the future I'll get one if someone decides to make a monoblock for it.

This is by far my favorite build I've done, and I'm so much more confident and comfortable with bending PETG compared to my very first hardline build (Unicorn Milk v1.0). I understand that there's a lot of controversy with running your CPU and GPU in parallel, but honestly... I haven't really noticed any differences in temperatures, and flow seems pretty even between the blocks. What color of Primochill VUE am I using? Well, funny that you ask. I initially bought one bottle of the UV Sky Blue, and I severely underestimated how much fluid a 60mm thick 420 rad, and 45mm thick 280 rad can hold. However LUCKILY I had an extra bottle of Primochill VUE, but in UV Purple... So upon further investigation and finding out that it's indeed safe to mix two different colors of Primochill VUE poured the UV Purple in, and got this unique blue-ish/purple-ish color. Which I'm quite happy with.

Well, it's getting late and there's probably a ton of grammar and spelling errors in this post... So I'm going to sleep. Enjoy!

Another fan of Fractal HP14s!!!! This version is the best iteration of the build yet. It's simple, utterly powerful, and the RGB and coolant color work so well together. Could easily see this being featured. You've got my +10

Thank you! And I fell in love with the HP14. They surprised me to the fullest.

I have two HP14s and two HF14s on my CPU cooler rad, the HFs just for sheer CFM power to pull air into the case. theyre both dependable, sleek, powerful fans for sure

Well journey starts from v1.0 but I found a secret method of milking Unicorns. Let's just say I may or may not have a farm with a few captive unicorns.

Danggg. That looks so good. I thought my idea was expensive. How do you like the Vue? I am saving for a PC, but don't know if I should spend 700+ dollars on hardline water cooling.

Science has gotten too far, haha! Great job! Beauty is flowing in the veins of this PC

One thing you should check is if both 1080tis are running in 8x PCIe 3.0 mode or if 1 of them is running in 4x mode. The i7 only has 16x PCIe 3.0 lanes and I see you also have an NVMe SSD which takes up 4 lanes. You could be hitting some serious performance issues if the GPUs are in 8x and 4x mode.

Lol. I know. Its the first thing i checked for when i went sli i checked which m.2 slot coincides with which and both are at 8x.

Here ya go. They also have a different version if you want to use the lighted EVGA cover panel.

Thank you, are you still happy with that case? I'm really debating on getting one just not sure, if i did i might stay with soft tubing for now cause im new to this type of cooling

How do you like the keyboard? I'm thinking about getting it but idk because I've never tried this switches before. How would you describe the feel of them?

You know you have too much money when your computer costs more than your car or you buy a graphics card over $300. But why Windows 10 Pro? Do you need those features?

  • 22 months ago

Absolutely not. I'm just a sucker for things marketed with "Pro" in it

why do not you separate the two gpu from your cpu you have two radiator

  • 22 months ago
  • 1 point

Because parallel loops look dope, and I like the look of parallel loops. Loop order doesn't matter. Just because there's a radiator before the cpu or gpu isn't going to effect cooling performance. That's not how water cooling/radiators.
