LimeLight

I originally had my pc in a Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV itx with full loop, 1080ti, and more. I recently decided to upgrade to a 2080ti and low and behold, my new investment did not fit in my loop without some serious re-work so I decided it was time for a change. I bring to you my latest daily driver "LimeLight". The Corsair Crystal 280x is considered an mATX form factor with the ability to utilize itx as well but still held the same overall dimensions my old case had with the exception of the PSU shroud not being a factor anymore which allowed for more cooling space! I was able to squeeze in 3 240mm rads along with a full D5 Pump/Res combo, and 16mm PETG to boot. In order to ensure the best possible route for the loop I needed to reverse the inlet and outlet on the cpu block, this meant I had to break down the Velocity block to flip the trim piece 180dgz so it remained in the proper orientation after the block was flipped upside down as well as delicately removing, flipping and replacing the EK badge on the face of the block. Upon this success all was ready for PETG installation and so forth. After a 6 hour gaming session yesterday my temps were beyond amazing with the GPU sitting at 49c and the CPU at 45c, I have a score of 9929 in Port Royal which holds 1st place in my hardware category so I feel good about its capabilities.
