Description

Machine is used mainly for gaming. Came from a ryzen 3 2200g and 1050ti build. Upgraded to a b450 and ryzen 5 2600 which i ended up trading a friend for the z370 gaming 7 and i7 8700k he had just laying around which was just an awesome thing for him to do. Graphics card I got for a steal at 180 dollars. Was a mining card but has been running great and overclocked for the 5 months i've owned it now. Also watercooled it for under 100 bucks. (Really recommend the kraken g12 and corsair h55 cooler) Everything else was pretty much bought new and can destroy just about any game I throw at it! Only have about 1000 dollars in this thing so I guess you could call it "budget" Thanks for looking!!

Good build. Did you put the fans on the other side of the rad? +1

Thank you! Yes the fans are in the very front of the case. I was skeptical about doing that at first because I thought it might restrict the air flow. Doesn't seem to effect it at all though. CPU temps will barely break into the 50's under heavy loads.

Clean. Simple. Elegant. Love it.

Beautiful build, thinking about getting an H55 for my G12 but I want to ask how is the pump noise, is it audible? If so what type of noise? I had a 1080 FTW Hybrid but the EVGA pump was awfully loud..

Thank you! And yes and no. Oddly enough, if you hook it up to one of the motherboard 4 pin power connectors it runs at full speed no matter what. Could just be my pump and mobo combo who knows. But no matter how much I try to mess with it, I can't get it to quiet down. Bought a molex 2 pin fan power connector for like 3 dollars off of amazon and plugged the pump in to that. No noise from the pump at all and the gpu stays around 57c under heavy load. That's with a 215MHz boost on the core clock and a 440 MHz boost on the memory clock so it's got a pretty decent overclock on it. So if you wanna kinda I guess 'rig' it, it works. Been doing that for about 3 months now and no issues or pump noise at all so i'm happy with it. You might not have the same problem I did.

Okay awesome, thanks for the helpful response. My new Hybrid comes Monday so I'll see if the pump noise on that is any different, if not, I'll either try the power connector or buy a G12 with a Kraken cooler (only because the white G12 would look awesome in my system)

Hey where did you get the backplate?

V1 Tech. A little pricey but they make some cool stuff!

8700K draws 130W overclocked and 1070Ti draws 180W max overclocked. I think it would be better to have the 240 on the video card, and the 120 on the cpu. Also I'd put the fan behind the 120, as you did with the 240, blowing air inside the case. The upper fan as exhaust, you should have the best temps this way.

I appreciate the feedback! However, there are two problems with this. Problem one, the 240 waterblock doesn't mount to the gpu bracket. Problem two, if I turned the 120 fan around, the rgb would be hidden. More of an aesthetics problem but a problem none the less.

The way the hoses come off the gpu looks really clean and I wanna replicate it in my build. Do you have them mounted where the hoses face the back IO ports?

  • 11 months ago

Thank you! And yes where they come out of the block it is facing the io. and the right hose is routed behind the graphics card. I had enough room to do that with the design of my motherboard. Your mileage may vary though.

Well, the reason I got downvotes on my earlier comment because some people just dont know anything about PC's, and they hate the people who actually try to learn.

  • 14 months ago

The reason you got "downvotes" in the first place is that asking if a 1070 ti will bottleneck an 8700k, a laughable question to most enthusiasts. I don't think they don't know anything about PC's but any PC questions shouldn't be hated on.

I know right. Ok see, I dont know a lot about PC's but I admire them.

No bottleneck at all. Awesome pair so far.
