Description

This is my first water cooling build, i'm working on this project for months. On some pictures exposure is bad and power supply looks orange, but is red. White PSU? Why? Because under the red LED lighting looks great, it can be see on picture.

CPU is set to 4.8 @1.312v, and gpu 1500/7600 (max 1550/8000). 3DMark total score ~24000 GPU score ~41000 Result link: http://i.imgur.com/6VoGmUO.png

Enjoy your monster PC!

RIP electricity bill tho

GetOut 1 Build 3 points 18 months ago

The electricity bill will probably be more than the PC itself..

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Lol wat

S0nny_WarBucks58 3 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Lol I say stuff like this alot on featured builds.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Makes sense

S0nny_WarBucks58 3 Builds 3 points 18 months ago

Lol I get upvoted for it sometimes, and I get downvoted for it most of the time.

Matthewtina2015 2 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

Lol, have an upvote

ThugginMcMuffin 3 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

Hot damn, you get a +1 for that case. I have not seen anybody watercool in an antec case in FOREVER

-Plus, its a very neat build and you make everything look very tidy :)

Nicko_barbeque 2 points 18 months ago

Nice build. definetly +1 from me

Wolfemane 5 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

saWEET, I was really hoping this one would get featured. Great job!

RED RED RED RED & RED!!!

awesome pc setup and it's RED!!!

HyperYveltal16 2 points 18 months ago

Over 9000 + it just is too awesome and another good name for it is fireman P.s. how much was that cooling system for?

MrMoose88 5 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

Awesome build man love the custom loop! Also dont pay attention to anyone who says "y no 1080?!?!" the hype for the 1080 is getting cancerous, 2 980ti's are more than enough to demolish games in 4k.

tandemrecruit 2 points 18 months ago

especially when the 1080s sold out within minutes on Amazon, Newegg and Best Buy

MrMoose88 5 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

yeah, there arent any available, and most everyone asking why he didnt buy a 1080 doesnt even own one either lol

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

doesnt even have they own build on site :) lol

MrMoose88 5 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

lol yep

AION-MC EKWB 18 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

Great build man! Clean and perfect

ApatheticRenegade 5 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

+1. Would give an extra +4 for the neatness, glowing PSU, and that /very/ sexy SLI bridge. Also, you found a special place in my heart with all that red.

gazereths 8 Builds 2 points 18 months ago

Wow that is truly a piece of beautiful artwork, nice OC on the 4790k as well. +1 from me dude :)

Cosmo_Canyon 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

It's been a long time since the last good build here.At last a beast build getting featured. Great job man.Well Done.

f16poom 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

I don't need it.

I don't need it.

I definitely don't need it.

I NEEEEEED IIIIIIIT!!!!

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

When I have a bad mood , it is enough to see the Rig, and im great! Firestorm is part of my life heheheh

Seventh-Column 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Congrats on becoming featured!

CrimzonSlayeRx 2 points 18 months ago

finally, a build that can run minesweeper at 30fps..

+1

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

yeah, but there is some drops to 25 FPS :D

Unuvailiable 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Love the way it looks, the psu white leds look awesome

damcrac 1 point 18 months ago

Every time I see a build with a custom loop looking this good, it pushes my "want" a custom loop closer to "need". Looks amazing! +1

twinn 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Great tube work! And that PSU looks wonderful in the dark.

I'm not brave enough for a custom loop, but I would take a cue or two from your build if I were.

butch10x 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Great build! +1. I am also about to build my first custom water cooled rig. I've got everything in the cart including the 980 ti's. I'm waiting till at least pre-orders for the 1080's before I buy the GPU's.

Solid build here, congrats!

tandemrecruit 1 point 18 months ago
butch10x 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

I thought it was avail on the 27th of May.

tandemrecruit 1 point 18 months ago

From the link - "The official launch of the GPU is May 27, but big vendors such as Newegg, Best Buy and Amazon anticipated the high demand and made it available via preorder"

AddisonKwong 1 point 18 months ago

Have you tried white leds? The rig kinda looks too evil and scary with red leds :P

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

After i finish DOOM :)))

AddisonKwong 2 points 18 months ago

Haha XD

Deathsightgq 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

any pointers trying to look for cooling system for the future

embru 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

100 points! Love this build <3 +1

voaz 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Looks great!

DigitalEdge 1 point 18 months ago

Firestorm cooled by water. +1

MaxTheMoose 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Seems ironic it's called firestorm with the temps like that B)

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

lol, it can be really hot.. mid 50 °C hehe :)

MaxTheMoose 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

I'm hoping honestly to do a loop like that, did you use PETG? and if so what fittings did you choose?

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Yes PETG 16mm, i use EK-HDC Fitting 16mm.... large tubing look much better (my opinion) more powerful :D

MaxTheMoose 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Awesome!

tandemrecruit 1 point 18 months ago

Why the 2x 250gb ssds?

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

Because first i bought one ssd...im not bulid Rig at once ...then i bought second and put it in RAID 0, much better then one 500gb ssd

tandemrecruit 1 point 18 months ago

Ahh, I see now

erickdiaz84 3 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Can I borrow your temps? My air cooled rig is so jealous right now. Amazing build!

JohnTrabusca 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Awesome build right here :) Congratz man

AresXena 1 point 18 months ago

What was your experience with this liquid rig? Was it difficult? Did it meet up to your expectations in terms of difficulty to assemble?

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Bending is not hard (not for me), but hit the right angles....that is tricky! Because it is my first custom water cooling build, I did not expect such great, almost perfect Rig :) You must really to think hard when you choosing components , in some situations I have clearance 1-2 millimeters (pump tank-GPUs, tubing from pump to GPU terminal, tubing from CPU block to top radiator...and more)

quzar469 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

can it play minesweeper?

Synthase 1 point 18 months ago

Far Too Loud called, he wants his song name back.

sniperpro 1 point 18 months ago

i love what you did to the psu the most

Scadoosh118 2 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

I've never even heard of super flower

Vainslay 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

They're mainly knowned for being a top notch oem, who also make deals for other company's psu, famously now, Evga's g2 and p2 series.

Yes you don't really see them in the market though

syntaxerrur 22 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Superb build. You should be proud of what you have created.

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Thx :)

wj.kareem 1 point 18 months ago

What a cool liquid air conditioner!

LeeCutler2015 1 point 18 months ago

Love this build! I personally think a black PSU would look better though under the red LEDs because in my opinion the white looks out of place.

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Believe me, I am a perfectionist :) I planned painted PSU in black, but before I decided to see what it looks like, and looks perfect. My room is always dark, and white power supply glows red, you can see in the picture. I worked for hours, thinking for days ... and I would not let something looks "out of place". Pictures can not really show how it looks "in live"

alreadyhome88 1 point 18 months ago

What?! A FreeSync monitor with 2 980ti.. (asian face) silly

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

heheheh, i understand.... My previous build was two 390x, and didnt change monitor because my wallet is so empty right now :D I fall in love when I see Predator X34

Jake762by39 6 Builds 1 point 18 months ago

Now that right there is some damn fine tube routing; something I can appreciate.

Z3R0-1NT3LL1G3NTS 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Amazing! very clean. +1

KronosGamingYT 1 point 17 months ago

Only tip i have is hide all those cables on the outside so it doesnt look like a monster is coming up from behind your desk and MAYBE drill holes in your desk for the mouse and keyboard cable to go through

Gameson 1 point 15 months ago

Two 980 ti... Holy Crap! Have you done a Steam VR test yet? Would love to hear the results! Enjoy your monster PC!

syg101 3 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

honestly one of the most amazing build i've seen. +1

Vernopolis 1 point 2 months ago

What are your thoughts on the case? Thinking of using it for my build.

Eltech 16 Builds 0 points 18 months ago
I love the parts and how your build appears. I like the colors too. You have my one.
s.a.wood15 2 Builds 0 points 18 months ago

Winning.

James_games 0 points 18 months ago

Great build! You probs should have waited another month tho :/ the new 1080's are supposed to be out soon, and about the same price as the 980's. 1 1080 is supposed to be better than SLI 980's (not SLI 980 Ti's though :D). But thats me being picky. I could never do a build like this XD great with the color scheme to by the way! That's the good thing about those MSI 980's, it looks really cool! +1 from me ;)

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 0 points 18 months ago

Problem is my 4790k, that cpu does not use the full potential of 2 way 980ti.... I bought gpus at the beginning of the year, and its too long wait for the 1080 water block design and "board partners" cards.... Im from Croatia, where hardware cost much more.. For example msi 980 ti cost 1000$, samsung evo 250 130$. 1080 will be expensive in my country , and more than 980T. My next upgrade will be in 2018, Nvidia Volta and Intel Cannonlake :)

LeeCutler2015 0 points 18 months ago

They come out tomorrow...

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 0 points 18 months ago

yes block is release.....but i hope you get the point of my CPU limitation

Bean22 0 points 18 months ago

Not waiting for 1080? Also nice build

tandemrecruit 2 points 18 months ago

Did you see in the desc that hes been building this for months?

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Finally someone reasonable! :)))))

Bean22 1 point 18 months ago

aww missed it sorry

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

Ok :)

Aceboyz -2 points 18 months ago

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 2 points 18 months ago

I'm really scared right now.

[comment deleted]
jordanthebuyer13 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

im pretty sure he chose the 980's over the 1080's because it would be about a year before the partner cards are released and if you translate the cost of the 1080's from american to Canadian its about 250ish dollars more but i see what your saying :P

Welcome to PCPP: Where people can't read descriptions or other comments before commenting on completed builds.

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 1 point 18 months ago

people behave like I yestareday buy 980Ti...and why can I be so stupid... Cooling is last what im done...

MrMoose88 5 Builds 3 points 18 months ago

best part is, only a year ago 980ti's were all the hype, now people are acting as if it is a piece of crap card just cuz the 1080 is the new card.

dr.jazz submitter 1 Build 0 points 18 months ago

People who doesnt have high end PC, or GPU think in that "strange way". I really do not care if I have 160 or 150 FPS on 75HZ monitor. People also think that the 980Ti is much weaker than 1080.
