So, after months of preparation and 2 months of build time, i present my first attempt at a custom water cooled PC. This PC is for gaming, streaming on twitch and starting some video/photography editing work too.
I decided it was time for an upgrade from my 4 year old system and started looking around at ideas. When coming across the "Tower 900" case, i instantly fell in love, so i embarked on a quest to achieve something far beyond the skills i currently have when it comes to building PCs. There's a few imperfections with the build and i learned loads along the way, but got to say i am extremely happy with how this come out.
One issue i have encountered since, which i would love some input to help me fix if possible is follows - - None of my monitors connect with a Display port cable. I have tried 3 different cables and none of them work, i just get no signal and the screen remains black. - HDMI cables work fine. - The workaround i had to use was using HDMI cables from my 2 main monitors and putting a display port adaptor on the end which plugs in to the graphics card, this works perfectly, but its annoying the hell out of me why the display port cables just wont work. Suggestions welcome.
Need to install a few bits now, including bench marking tools. Will update in the coming weeks.
Feel free to ask any questions and i will answer when i get a chance. Feedback welcome too :)
