Frankenrig

This is a backup rig that I use for TV, gaming, and some light CAD work. Managed to grab a 2080 Super with a waterblock from EVGA that I wanted to put to good use, and just finished the build yesterday.

First watercooled build, and it was a blast in the 12 hours it took to build.

Case: Sliger SM580

MoBo: Gigabyte B550I Aorus Pro AX

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

GPU: EVGA 2080 Super FTW3 with a Hydro Copper waterblock

PSU: Corsair SF600

Cooling: Corsair CPU Waterblock, Corsair XD3 Pump/Resi

Top Rad: Corsair 240mm with two Scythe slim fans (exhaust)

Bottom Rad: EKWB 120 mm rad with Scythe slim fan (intake)

Tubes: EKWB Matte Black rubber 3/8" ID 5/8" OD

Fittings: Enzotech compression fittings, Barrow 90 degree fittings

CPU runs at 25-30C idle, runs up to about 40C gaming. GPU runs at 30C idle, up to about 40C gaming. These temps were pretty unbelievable at first glance. Watercooling is crazy, guys.

This is still somewhat of a WIP, and I may do some rerouting of the tubes, and consider a more compact pump/resi system to decrease the Frankenstein effect, but I'm kiiinda liking the look so far.
