Description

Thank you everyone for the kind words and pcpartpicker for the feature!! you rock

So this is about my fourth or fifth water cooled build I have done. Each one you learn something and I am very lucky to have a ton of fittings to adjust the build instead of waiting for parts. I really wanted to do something with a waterway and I actually think the regular core p5 builds with custom watercooling come off goofy. Reason being is they either have a massive reservoir or these ugly long weird runs for tubing. The waterway cleans this build up exponentially and I personally think it is stunning. I am not a typical thermaltake fan in any way.

Most of the watercooling components are bykski which you don’t typically see also barrow fittings. This reduced cost by a metric ton. I was actually shipped the incorrect waterway at which point the seller allowed me to keep it and sent a second one that was the correct version. Seating the blocks was a little tricky since instructions are in Chinese but I have done this plenty of times in the past with EK equipment so I didn’t have much issue. The lcd screen on the gpu block is quite nice and allows me to keep an eye on temperatures as well as the lcd in the motherboard for the cpu temps.

One downside is I cannot see the lcd screen on my asus Thor psu for power Intake, but it isn’t the end of the world I suppose. I also must say the psu is nice but asus needs some major adjustments on this to say it is worth the $220 I spent. The lcd is only on one side as well as the rgb. Also don’t be fooled only half the cables are braided shame on you asus. They literally only had to braid four more cables and it would be a complete set.

Part Reviews

Video Card

Evga and watercooling. Pairing the best warranty with water just Incase something happens. Can’t recommend evga enough. I would never purchase any other brand if I was watercooling.

Case

Quite an interesting case. I do like the design and how it hides the drives in the slim metal backing. It is quite easy to build in. One downside though is the acrylic side panel which I think they may have changed to glass but nothing but budget pc cases should come with acrylic side panels. Also the feet is plastic which gives a different texture, would have loved metal here as well. I hate to say it but I would recommend the case.

Why do you need such a powerful computer? Your eyes can only see 30 fps... I forgot to mention that the earth is flat and the moon is a hologram.

Why you gotta state so many facts in one comment. The universe could have exploded from all that information

I'm sorry, but as soon as I saw this beast sitting on the ground....I almost had a heart attack.

I'm all for having nature involved in decoration, but just get a fake little plant from IKEA like the rest of us. lol

I feel so refreshed just looking at your waterways! It fits right in with nature, and those cables must be made from the souls of dead jellyfish! Awesome build!

Don't you think is dangerous keeping the PC on the grass? Also it could take the rain. I think is better if you keep it in safe into house.

How are the Lian-li rgb cables, I'm slowly being won over by rgb and these cables seem pretty cool. Any idea what lighting software it is compatible with?

I know it is being used through my asus aura. I am assuming it working with any motherboard controller and it comes with its own controller as well.

I would say quality wise much better than ek. The plexi is much thicker so it would be harder to crack. They use acetal were fittings go in to avoid this issue as well. Also a lcd monitor on the hub is quite nice. I am shocked by their quality
