First Expensive Build

by tietie102


I thought this build considering it to be my first ended up turning out really well. While building it I forgot that my 1080ti was a hybrid and therefore didn't think about the radiator from it. Had to move my cpu cooler around a lot in order to figure out what worked and what look alright. At first I had planned to put the cpu cooler on top of the case and the 1080ti radiator on the right side of the case but to my disappointment the tubing for the 1080ti didn't reach far enough in order to mount it on the right side of the case. I then decided to put the radiator on top of the case for the 1080ti and the cpu cooler on the right side. It ended up working out but I didn't really like the tubing going across the middle of the case. At last I decided to put the 1080ti radiator on the left side of the case and although it was a little tough because the tubing is pretty thick I was able to successfully place it there and I believe it provides better cooling in that place and looks better overall. The build took a total of 7 tedious hours of messing with cables and screwing stuff in to make and ended up looking very good in the end. I am able to overclock the crap out of it and it runs very well.

How’s the headset

The headset is great I am a big fan of Hyperx when it comes to their headsets.

Suggestion: Put the H115i radiator in the top, with the tubes on the right side, and leave the radiator for the GPU in the back where it is, just flip it around so the hoses are orientated at the bottom (that's how it's supposed to be installed, says so in the manual). The way you have the radiators and tubes orientated right now you're probably going to be getting air bubbles stuck in the pumps, which will cause extra noise from the pumps. The nice thing about the 750D case is that you've actually got room to put the 280mm rad in the top, and have the 120mm rad for the gpu in the back and it will all fit just fine. As a general rule, the pump should be the "lowest point" in the loop.

I actually tried to flip the radiator around and didn't really like how the tubes went across the middle of the case. I also kind of like the cpu cooler on the right side because I have two fans on the other side of it so it is running in a push pull configuration to keep it extra cool which works out well considering I am overclocking my CPU to 5GHZ. Thank you for the suggestions though so far everything is staying super cool even though I am overclocking all of it and I kind of like how it is oriented because it makes full use of the RGB lighting.

Yeah it can look messy if you have the GPU radiator in the back and the CPU radiator in the top, the tubes kind of all bunched in one area right over the CPU.
Hey how do you like that H115i? I've heard it's supposed to be amazing, got great reviews. First time Corsair ever really focused on being as quiet as possible.

Yea I love it super quiet and was very easy to install. Keeps my CPU at under 45 degrees celsius at all times with it overclocked at 5ghz. I keep it on balanced mode usually but I have put it on silent mode and there is almost no sound and still keeps it very cool. Can get a little noisy at full speed but it should never have to be at full speed.
