Project Golden ice (O11D)

My first venture into custom loop cooling
  • Build time: late autumn 2018

  • History behind the build: This build was my first venture into hardline tubing, and does in many ways serve as a working prototype/test-bed for an upcoming build and a replacement for my previous h500p build. Many of the things I tried to do didn't make it to the build here, like delving into custom PSU shrouds and a couple fun ideas I have for loop design.

  • What kind of custom work went into it: Obviously it's water-cooled. Beyond that the vertical GPU bracket got tweaked to support a bottom radiator, and metal details on the ram, AS well as rhw CPU and GPU block were re-painted gold

  • What i'd like to improve if it were today: I'd love to write a wall of text here, but that'd just spoil my upcoming build. All I can say is that it will feature a socket upgrade (finally) and dual 1080ti. So stay tuned for that.


The build did eventually get upgraded with an 8700k, 16gb 4266mhz ram, and a second 1080ti, named project Royal
