Desktobot

My first custom liquid cooling pc!

Hello, World!

Flobbled here, I built Desktobot in Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV case and is a full AMD build.
In early days Desktobot was an air-cooled pc, a noisy one, so I start my search for cheap custom water-cooling solution and I found EKWB's new Fluid Gaming Kit.
One problem here, Fluid Gaming kits are using aluminium parts and the parts are limited (in early days of fluid gaming at least, now they have multiple bits and options).
So I built Desktobot around FG A240R kit with soft tubing, then I upgraded to the 360mm radiator and multiple aluminium fittings to run straight the soft tubing that was already there (now you can buy bits to run acrylic tubing, that was not an option before).
I wrapped the case in carbon fiber vinyl to match the Msi X370 Gaming Pro Carbon and my black and red autobot theme.
After all the looks where in place I start playing with Overclocking and my Ryzen R7 1700 is sitting now at 4.0 GHz.
Desktobot is my VR Gaming Beast and Daily Workhorse for my coding sessions that makes me happy every time I push the start button.

Hope you had a good read,
Have an awesome day!
