Description

Building this monster was as crazy as i could of imagine. Loved every minute of it but right before flipping that ON switch is when my heart stopped for a sec. Everything turned out OK after leak test and finding bad fitting(replacing) it was smooth sailing

kwik background story.

This is my 1 water cooled build ever and 3rd pc build. I love doing this and do it just as a hobby:)

i bet there are people out there that are gonna say a lot negative stuff, why i did certain things and why i used what i used but i don't care. I love this build and i figured ill share with the rest of you

This is a very clean build! I recently bought the Tower Case and the exact same GPU, and was looking for compatible parts / similar builds, and I'm really glad I came across yours. Was there a reason / preference towards choosing that particular motherboard? It is a good one, but I was considering going for the MSI Z270 M7. Why did you go towards a colored tube as compared to a transparent one?

Gigabyte mobo I choose because I'm love the brand and never had any issues with any board in the past. It is RGB one also and I had z170 gaming 7 before that and in really liked that one and that's the only reason I went with it. Color tubbing I chose because I didn't want to add any dye into the tank due to ekwb issues with dye leak okkng between the base and acrylic top. Making spiderweb thruout the block. Since I didn't want to run into those issues I picked the color tubes and color coolant vs clear coolant and dyes

Forget what anyone thinks man, this is a great looking rig. Love the RGB RAM, nice mobo, wish I had the $ for that GPU...

I had looked at this case before and now that I see your build, I think I'm sold! Price alert! Overall, this is a freaking nice looking build.

Thats a dope *** case. How do you like that mouse? Ive been wanting one with more buttons. nice choice of motherboard as well. I know it has RGB headers on it so in case you ever think about changing the fluid, use pastel white and get some RGB stripsa

i have a g502 and its great. A bit heavy, but overall i like it and it has a great sensor. Currently thinking of getting a G900 (which is expensive for a mouse) because its a bit wider and lighter with the option to go wired or wireless.

Mouse is sick Since you can add weights to it and make it perfect weight. That's what makes it awesome. Rgb lights on it are great too and feel is just right . And yeah white pastel would look awesome :)

Love your build, man. I've never built a water cooling system. If I could, I'd want to build this same exact PC. This is lovely

Sanjulz 1 point 9 months ago

Was 1400 really the total cost for you? Looking to build one soon(probably around black friday sales) and I have quite a build in mind but my main issue is trying to figure out the water cooling setup. Really love the way you have it and the temp gauge is awesome as well. Would love some tips

The case is a one of a kind, nice build!
