Description

My second build and I was thinking about doing a custom water cooling for the first time, so I figured why not go all the way. Really nervous when disassembling the gpu and installed the waterblock since it's the most expensive part in this build (it successfully took the last breath of my wallet, haha), and ironically, EVGA RTX 2080Ti Black is the "cheapest" among EVGA's line of 2080Tis.

All the components worked as they should in default setting. I tried to overclocked the i9 9900K to 5Ghz and it seems like it's doing fine with temperature around 70-ish C on full load. Also OCed the RTX 2080Ti with +220 core clock and +1300 on memory clock. So far it shows no problem.

There's only one problem, it appears that one of the LED in my RAM is dead. Not that it affected the performance but I need to contact local distributor for this and hopefully it can be solved.

Pretty sure that cpu temp is ok, considering your setup. Even with more rads, the IHS can only transfer so much heat to the block. Its a really hot chip at 5ghz. Build looks great by the way.

There are 2 things that I need to ask. 1, how are the riing trios? I have been looking at using them for my build and was wondering how the cable management and how they look and perform. The 2nd thing is, why haven't you taken the plastic off your case yet?!!?!?! that triggers me so much sry.

I chose the riing trio because of the double sided ring and the fact that it's compatible with Asus Aura Sync. So far they are performing well, since it was designed as radiator fan. I wanted to control all the lighting with one application rather than having different apps for different lights. And about the plastic, hahaha, I peeled it off afterwards.

Okay, building computers is one thing I have knowledge on, but what is going on with your desktop I have no idea about and want to learn a whole lot more about.

the desktop? I'm using rainmeter to display the time, date, weather etc, if that's what you were asking for.

I already have the monitor before I build this pc, it's from my previous build.

Nice build, what is the primary thing you will be using it for?

I would say everything, because I'm using it for both work and game. I chose this build because I was hoping that I don't have to worry about upgrading in the near future.

What reservoir is that? A Phanteks PH-R220_BK01? I can't find a non-cylindrical reservoir anywhere. That is the first and only one I've seen. Though in your build, there looks to be more outlets/inlets available than the Phanteks one.

Also how does that DDC hold up, why not go with the D5?

I believe they are called water board. Mine is Bykski water board RGV-LAN-O11 specifically for Lian Li PC-O11. You can find different model to match the case you are using. AFAIK Bitspower and Barrow also have their version of water board. And I just found out that EK also have something similar as shown in one of bitwit's video in youtube.

I use DDC pump because it came with the waterboard, so I don't have any particular reason for choosing DDC over D5.
