Description

My first hard tube water cooled build. Ryzen 7 1800X OC 4.0 GHz 3200MHz DDR4.

The hard tube takes a bit of finesse to make it look good.

The hardest part was modding the case to have both GPUs at right angles to each other.

Thanks. I think I'm going to put a water block on the rear 480 or maybe both if I can get an RGB wb.

Wow, it looks super clean! The peripherals and monitor seem a little out of place though. +1

Thanks. That was just an exhibition (I took it to work to show off). I actually have a 28" Samsung 4k UHD monitor and an LED keyboard on this system.

Congrats on your first water cooled PC, I was thinking that a CPU only water cooled PC wouldn't look as good, but you have proved me wrong; great job! Hopefully you didn't have too much of a hard time bending your tubing.

Haha, yeah I wasn't sure if that was going to look cool or not. It worked out.

Was unaware that you could use mtn dew whiteout to water cool a PC. Does the caffeine help with over clocking. +1.

The caffeine helps with overclocking, like Adderall for ADHD! Lol.

The Riing 14 fans do not fit on the RL480 radiator, The Riing 12 fans do, unless I'm missing something.

Out of curiosity how low are your temps for your cpu?

  • 28 months ago

About 40C at idle, +80C with all cores at 100% and OC. Even with the H2O I can overheat this thing. Probably need to clean the fins.

Any reason you went with two 480's when a 1080 could be had for cheaper?

  • 28 months ago

Because the two RX 480s perform up to pare with the GTX 1080 for much less money. He probably didnt overpay for the 480s.... And it makes a good AMD Build.

Not trying to hate but in the discripion he put $289 each or $579 total ~ that a good $50 more than a 1080.

I just looked at my Amazon orders, I actually paid $269 with $20 mail-in rebate for each of them.

Exactly...

I purchased them separately and at the time the rx480 was the most energy efficient (I'm using them to mine crypto and I have solar). I should have sold them last month for double what I paid!

Wow. Quite lucky to hit 4.0 oh only 1.38

4GHz is pretty easy with the Ryzen 7 line. More than that is tough. I've had it at 4.1GHz and 1.4v, but it just made a lot of heat, and not alot more OPS

Ah. Guess im unlucky. My r7 was unstable at 4.0 1.45 volt lol. feelsbadman

Bro that first picture is creepy; nice build though.

But what is the point of a 2 160GB HDD?

  • 27 months ago

They're gone now. 1x 250GB SSD and 1x 1TB HDD. Plus I've redone the cooling and water cooled the GPUs (pics coming)

That was the plan, but the water blocks for that particular 480 are pricey $130/ea. 480mm Rad is a bit overkill for just the CPU, lol.

Can you link those water blocks please? And how did you get that 480? They're out of stock everywhere in Europe apart from eBay.

Great build btw, that tubing looks excellent.

I love the look of this waterblock! And unlike the stupid Riing fans, it's a true RGB 4-pin connection.

The GTR wasn't popular enough to make a lot of waterblocks as it has a NON-reference pcb, I found a cool one from Bykski, but it's in China and hard to get. Only ~$75 though.

Thanks.

Which Intel cpu has 8 cores and hyper-threading for under $500? Can you suggest one? I'll see if I can do a side by side comparison video. Would be interesting to see.
