New Old Build.
Hi guys, I'm in the process of doing my first custom water cooled rig and also my first (minor) case mod.
Thought I would share a few pics.
Case and components are 4.5 years old.
Reason I am water cooling such an old build, GTX 690 Graphics card still runs my favourite game (Asseto Corsa) at max settings, but fan noise was getting to me.
Also wanted to overclock it so needed to get temps down (76c when gaming)
Decided to replace the AIO cpu cooler as well.
anyway, it's nearly there, just need to bend my acrylic tubing and I'm up and running.
this is what I started with
cut out most of the 5.25 bays to fit my front rad
Powder coated white
Dual GPU goodness
second rad, slimline
cut this into the side panel at work.
Don't know if I will use it cos I like looking at the internals and more so when there will be water flowing through its veins
Halfway there, made so many mistakes, run out of tube
