Most of the parts from this build have been carried over from the previous iteration of this build, which I have shown a picture of at the end of the album. For the most part, building was a smooth process, the one thing I screwed up was I mounted the coldplate incorrectly on the waterblock, which took me some time to figure out, after which I had to drain the system and reinstall. Pretty happy with how it runs, my fans run at around 650RPM, and pump at 1600RPM, and I idle around ~32C for both CPU (3.8GHZ) and GPU (2.05GHZ), and usually max out at around 50C while playing games. I could probably get better temps if I cranked them up, but silence is pretty important to me, and I'm willing to take a slight increase in temps if I have to.
If you're wondering about that 1080ti just sitting on my desk, it's a defective I'm about to RMA to EVGA, just thought it would look cool if I placed it in the shot :). Speaking of parts, there are some interesting stories about some of my watercooling parts, and there is a reason why they are so cheap:
CPU Block - I bought this used from I guy on r/hardwareswap, but when I got it the existing coldplate was rusted and kinda nasty. I messaged him about it, and he agreed to refund me, but told me to keep it as he couldn't be bothered to pay for return shipping. I ended up buying just the coldplate from PPCS which all I paid for it.
GPU Block - A nice guy on reddit had upgraded to a 2080ti and didn't have any use for his old 1080ti block, so he ended up giving to me for free!
P.S. - Sorry for the crappy photos, tried my best with my phone camera
