Description

This is an update from an earlier build (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/6vsZxr)

Like many of you reading this, you build a PC, you try to leave it alone, and eventually you end up with something that's beyond purpose and/or function (?). The intent of the build was to have an all around powerful, but most importantly PORTABLE productivity PC capable of gaming on the weekend. Theoretically it's still very portable but I don't think it's very practical anymore.

I have no desire to purchase a 20xx GPU, so the 1080Ti isn't going anywhere. A 8700k will meet all of my needs for many years to come. In addition to those reason, putting them under hard tubing is a personal deterrent to make any changes. The tubes were a royal PITA to measure and get together.

Case mods include cutting a 120mm opening in the bottom of the case for an additional fan, cutting the 5.25" drive bay flush with the reservoir and popping a hole for the fill tube opening.

Not my craziest build but easily my favorite.

!!!! I had no idea a custom loop was possible in the Lian-Li case. A custom loop build with a handle. Incredible.

Nice! +1

Under load, is that single 140 rad enough?

After a couple of hours gaming, temps reach mid 60s on the CPU and the GPU has never seen anything past 40C. I'd say that's a win!

Very cool. Always wanted to do a build in one of these cases. How was the building experience?

More pleasant than I thought. It wouldn't have been possible without fittings that tighten with tools. I love Monsoon fittings for that reason. Like any hard tube build, have plenty of extra tubing for mistakes - lol.

Hi there,

Quick question - how did you mount the 120mm fan at the bottom?

Super late response... I drilled new mounting holes.
