My very first custom water cooled build. 7700k, FTW3's still on air.
This was what the whole set up looked like before the switch to X299 and the Elite case
You can see the leak at the bottom which caused me to tear it down and re-do everything
This shows off the CableMod wide beam RGB/UV strips
Before the fluids went in.
Final version (so far ;p )
Final version without side glass

The Elite Build
My PC has went through several iterations and forms over the last two years. It started off as a SkyTech pre-built I bought from Amazon in Nov 2016. It had a 6700k and 1060 mini. I then upgraded to a 7700k and 1080 hybrid. Then I decided to water cool, as I'm sure any other enthusiast knows, there's always new stuff you want. This is the most current form as of a couple weeks ago when I took it apart to do maintenance on the loops and remove a couple radiators and their fans. I was not happy with the previous tubing runs and I had a very slow leak in one of the radiators that was not repairable. This rig is my daily driver for playing games, I had originally wanted to stream too but haven't tried that yet. When putting this together originally I had issues trying to do SLI and dual NVMe M.2's, I was running out of PCIe lanes on mainstream MOBO's. I had a 7700k, gave that to a good friend of mine and bought a 7800X, still didn't have enough lanes so I ended up with the 7920X. So, for only my second water cooled build I think I did pretty good. This is way better than playing Xbox games like I was before
