Pretty sure I just came... Those pipes are beautifully done!
Would love more photos and a list of parts used museumman , I've recently changed over to a 280X as well and been slowly planning out a loop. Looks the goods!
That's one sweet looking rig, nicely done!
No problems, fronted work today and we dont go back for another week apparently I'll clean it up a little today and post a few shots tonite
GPU inlet feed sags and drops on the fitting bringing that pipe down a little and its doing my head in looking at it They look okay but Im ultimately unhappy with the tubing but I'll reorder some pipe in the next few weeks and redo a few of the bends im not happy with. Too much holiday cheer while building it
I'll itemize it out this arvo for you and add a few snaps. Any questions feel free to shoot me a PM.
Thanks man, its been a build of trials so not what I would prefer but rollin' with the punches and with a few tweaks and I'll be happy.
Thought I'd post a few shots of my recent build here , its a Ryzen 2700x and a 1080ti on GPU duties. The case is an Inwin 909 but heavily modded over the last couple months.
Basically flipped upside down inverted atx style , and a whole heap of custom panels, brackets and mounts i made to tidy everything up , including lowering the mid plate sections down a bit to fit in the lightbox i made for it, definitely borrowed lots of inspiration from the Murdermod/xforma cases.
Definitely happy with how it turned out. I have lots more shots from the build process, should probably get round to writing up a build log.
Nice orientation change - looks clean as
The symmetry is fantastic
Cheers. I swapped out those fans for ML120's recently - the previous fans were awful.
The lighting is custom, just a ws2812b strip I routed through the block and res off the addressable header on the board
Almost finished the Define R6 - Ryzen Build - 1800x with a Vega 56 (Bios Flashed @ 1682 C/1100 HBM). Going to put the VUE in it. Had to versions of my loop. Possibly thinking of a third config and open to suggestions . What do you guys think? Posted both pics. First time doing water-cooling, very enjoyable plus a pain at times haha.
Some in progress pics can be seen here ; https://imgur.com/gallery/NPKvD5O
I love the backglow, white fans and tubing bends mate - splendid effort!
Cheers! What loop config do you think is better?
Will update when I've put the coolant and finishing touches
The top one fills the case space nicely I think - bit more uniform in coverage. The only thing I might change would be to bend another CPU-GPU length and knock that extender out of the top GPU fitting - but that's just being a pedant, it looks great as-is.
Looking forward to seeing it finalised!
nice clean build
top one for me, much neater without all the extenders etc
the only thing that does my ocd in, is the tube from top rad to cpu not coming down straight, but thats just me being overly pedantic
Thanks . Will hopefully get time this long weekend . Yeah the bend was much lower than needed and had to keep cutting till it fit hence there isnt too much staight petg there. Should probably fix it haha.
Wow soo many beautiful cases with hard tubing, making me ... hard?
Old school ladies -->
Gonna need some help, just finished building my second water cooled rig, but....I have a 2nd Radeon Vega FE on the way. I know I could slot another 280mm rad at the bottom of the case (Fractal design meshify s2) but need some ideas on the fan direction.
Currently have a 360mm rad at the top, and a 280mm rad at the front.
The 1950x doesn't go above 66c(running at 4.1ghz 1.4v), GPU runs at 48c (1650mhz/1110mhz with 150% power limit).
Normally I'd say fuck it just plumb it in with that much radiator mate, but that's pretty toasty already and probably about 700W or so given your OCs.
You might want the bottom radiator sucking in from the bottom - three intakes at front vs five exhausts top and bottom isn't something I'd be too comfortable with. I'd be filtering and turning that rear exhaust into an intake too,to give the roof rad at least some cool air rather than two lots of hot exhaust.
Hang a radiator off the back of the case like the old days, i think it was swiftech that did this...
Work in progress...
^ thats gunna be a very tidy build man o7, you have a colour scheme or coolant colour in mind?
well well, the community of water cooling has come a million miles since 2007.
my water cooled power supply still lives, and will be used in a new build soon. i'm feeling the pressure to put something clean together, don't dare show it otherwise
