Now we're talking Darren!
New case and RGB and extra desk for more space. I say desk... its 2 dining room tables lol.
Awaiting a Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM for case exhaust, gonna max it and i should be good to go.
Currently using a spare Arctic Freezer II one, i'll also need to attach another Pcie cable, after that just nvidia 3k series to slot in.
Not been here for a long time.
New system bring setup. Money an issue now.
As i have no income anymore. Hope that gets sorted.
Anyway, this is where I'm at and where I'm heading.
Sharkoon Rev 200 modded
Arctic Bionix F140 x2
Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240 AIO
Asus ROG Strix B550 i
Corsair 3200 DDR4 8Gb x 2
Fractal Ion+ 760w - waiting delivery
Cooler Master Vertical GPU Mount
Seagate Firecuda 510 500Gb Gen 4 and Gen 3(2 x 500Gb)
Next to buy:
AMD 5600x or 3600x
AMD 6700xt or 5700xt
I've my liquid freezer same place as yours but my tubes are at the top, makes it easier to reach over to the cpu.
Air rises. The bubbles will end up in the top tubes making air gaps. Which will kill the pump.
If you want it to work better, try it out my way.
But it's all up to you. Nice job otherwise.
took the time recently to redo some cable management:
Just installed my Asus Tuf Gaming RTX 3090 coming from an RTX 2080Ti SLI. Decided not to SLI this time around.
AMD ThreadRipper 3960X @ 4.1ghz
Asus TRX40-E Gaming Motherboard
Trident Neo 3600 64GB (16x4GB) Ram
Thermaltake Floe Riing TR4 Edition 360mm AIO CPU Cooler
Asus TUF Gaming RTX 3090 GPU
Asus ROG XG438Q Monitor
Very nice, and what about that amazing psu, which one is it exactly cheers!
The airflow looks great too!
A tiny build
After much waiting, preparation and frustration
Finally got all the parts together for my Ghost Louqe S1 MKIII build
I installed a Swiftech Apogee Drive 2 with an EK DDC 3.2 PWM pump. I lapped the Apogee Drive 2 copper heat plate and my lapped my i5 10600k (thankyou Jayztwocents)
Water-cooled 2080ti and Intel 10600k CPU on a Gigabyte Z940i Aorus Ultra Motherboard
2 Alphacool full copper 240 rad with 4 x Arctic P12 PWM fans
I think the EK DDC 3,2 PWM pump situated in the Apogee drive 2 housing is a bit too noisy.
Still waiting for some thin Corsair SFX 750W cables and still testing lighting
Lapping knocked 5 degrees off Division 2. Yes, that game gave me the highest temps, not Cinebench!
All in all this build may be temporary. I just saw the Lian Li PC-011 Mini case review!!! !!!!
Hey guys.. wanted to share the current and last iteration of my PC. As this build is running a z370 board and I5 8600k, ill be looking to build a fully new system likely in the next year or so, or at a time when I feel like the upgrade is really meritted.
Fortunately had some time around the holidays and was able to inject the 3080 into my loop. So far, very happy with the performance and just dialing in my undervolt at this time. Elected to go with a slight lean on the card for a more unique look, and really happy with how it turned out. Hope you like!
New keyboard, replacing another nice mechanical one but no-where near as badass.
New internals and gaming screen, same case.
Asus ROG XG279Q gamings screen, IPS, 170hz
Now running a Gigabyte aorus x570i pro wifi motherboard
Ryzen 7 5800x
G-Skill Neo 32 gig 3600Mhz
EVGA 3080 XC3 Black
Four new Lian Li Uni fans (don't if that was a good choice)
Same Apogee Swiftek Drive II CPU block/pump combo
Ghost Louque MKIII case
The new AMD CPU is WARMER than the Intel and as you can see I had to rotate the Pump for the AMD bracket and the water outlets are pressing against the G-Skill memory, not good.
I have, alas, made the decision to change to a Lian Li 011 dynamic mini case.
Ghost Louqe S1 MKIII case is magnificent, but not for an AMD full water cooling loop.
Next build- Lian Li 011 D Mini!
Bonus points for what appears to be sticky tape.
Honestly some of you guys are like mad scientists.
Cleaned out case and re-positioned radiator to below gpu, gpu temps are much better now which i wasn't expecting.
didn't think it was recommended to put it below?
I get it, though i've a tiny case and before it was cutting off all intake air, been monitoring it for few days now and tidied it up a bit more.
Running at 5.16ghz no problems at max 1.3v, ram is somewhere around 4180, max cpu temp i've seen is 70c and i've tried cinebench r20 and many games now.
When i upgrade cpu next time i may go for massive 420 rad and just hang it's ass outside case.
It's all fun in the end though i don't see me swapping gpu for a while now (shame cause i could muster £1k in 6 weeks but it's pointless, i'll maybe look at a vr headset.
*GPU temps are way down still.
5800x - 3090 - 32gb ddr4 - corsair 680x - all noctua chromax fans.
