Felt really good to finally be done with the first phase here after a month of tinkering and late nights worrying and gaming on it.
My build as I was planning out the atrocities about to happen. an RX480 was used as a stand-in until my 2080 came in.
This truly girthy radiator certainly gave me the business.
After mangling a notch into the bottom of the case with a hacksaw, it stuffed into the case almost exactly at its maximum length.
An early picture with bad lighting.
Bit of World of Tanks running at 4k. 60 fps with no bumps. Was able to go up to 70 fps after overclocking the monitor but artifacts made me worry so I disabled it afterwards. Ignore the Techquickie on my laptop.
Bit of an M4 Unicum guide.
Slightly better lighting for an off angle picture.
Great step-down flagship parts in a garbage case. Water cooled more for looks than anything. Will add some more cable sleeving down the line when I have spare time in addition to a new case that can support more radiator room for adding my GPU to the loop. Unfortunately this site is missing the original EVO AMD water block to tag so I tagged it with the nickel one. And as a bonus, I zip tied the radiator to the front of my case, after sawing a small cutout to insert the gigantic radiator, as the screw holes did not line up. I included some planning pictures as well just to show I was the one who built it. I wanted it to emulate the early water cooling builds of old with more modern parts and go with a sort of science theme. The game present on the images is World of Tanks. Also please ignore the Techquickie video on my laptop.
