I've been asked a few times to post images of my pc, so here it is, please bear in-mind this is the very first PC I've built, and thanks to this forum for the help its come out great (well works perfect for my needs).
 
Specs:
 
Case - Lian-Li 011-Air
Case Fans - 3x Noctua Industrial 120mm fans (PWM 2000rpm)
Motherboard - EVGA Z390 Dark
Memory - Corsair Vengeance PRO-RGB DDR4-3466Mhz (OC to 3900Mhz) 32GB Total. (Two DIMMs)
CPU - Intel i9 9900K (OC to 5.2Ghz)
PSU - EVGA G3 1000w
GPU - Kingpin 2080 ti (OC to 2130Mhz, 8450mhz memory)
Vertical GPU Cable - Termaltake Platinum 300mm 16x cable
Watercooling - Mo-Ra3 Pro420 external rad (stainless), dual D5 EK pumps, Heatkiller 200mm res, Heatkiller IV cpu block, Mayhem tube 16/10, Alphacool fittings, 9x140mm Noctua 2000rpm PMW fans, Koolance QD3 Quick release fittings, Mayhem UV premix.
Monitor - EIZO CG319X (This is for my photo editing, cost more than the whole computer lol)
 
What you can't see is that I've modified the case to take the GPU in this position, I neatly cut the back out and also made a stand to offer support to the GPU as its heavy.
 
The external rad is sitting 3meters away from the computer, I made all the external cabling myself. 
 
The exteranl fans run at 20%, which you can not hear, this keeps temps under control, GPU idles at 25degrees, cpu 26 degrees.  When under load load CPU goes upto 75degrees, but instantly falls back to 25ish, so better results would be seen with lowering Voltage and getting better oc on cpu, and or delidding.
 
I have done some bench marks, port royal 10,007, superposition 13850 (4k), Cinebench R20 5200points.
 
My goal was a powerful machine that could run so quiet I couldn't hear it.. I have achieved that.
 
Let me know if you want to see the images of the rad set up, I didn't include it as I didn't think people would be that interested...
 
Please judge me nicely, remember first time builder :D 
 
Thanks to all those that gave me advice on this forum and pointed me in the right direction, its much appreciated.

    Personally I like this. There might be some people who don't like your watercooling loop but the way you designed it makes it easy for maintenance and cleaning in my personal opinion

    Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 64GB Corsair RGB Dominator,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2080ti Black

    I fully get why people will feel I’ve not made the effort to do hard line tubing, however as mentioned this is for two reasons, easy maintenance which is more important to me.

    I also like this look, its a personal thing, I like things neat and tidy, but I also don’t want 30x 90degree bends in my loop, everything is free flowing.

    Mechanically I felt the soft line tubing was a better design and less likely to fail.

    Either way if people don’t like it I’m not going to loose sleep over it :-) i can move my gpu out the way and remove the evga board in less then a min :-)

    All the wires inside are super neat I just didn’t show it as I didn’t think anyone would be interested.


    Thanks for the comments though, much appreciated :-)

    I like it and especially like it when the builder likes it.    Well done Clark!

    Yes, show us some images of the rest of the build. 

    What your temps for the GPU on load since I feel your CPU temps are pretty high for a setup like that.

    Its only because of the fact its a poor OC, I let the robot do it, I think its at 1.355 volts, at 5.2ghz, so this is at the limit of thermal transfer from the heat spreader to the cpu block, when it was running at 4.9ghz it wouldn't go above 65c.  EDIT: also it used to run at 65degrees max all the time, but noticed it wasn't running more than 4.9ghz, someone told me to just the ATX value (I think it was) so that it allowed it to OC more, that is what has drove the temps up imho.
     
    The gpu runs hot at around 42 degrees max.  (this is in superposition or port royal).

    Much better looking than my first attempt. I like it all, case, fans, and I do like the loop runs. The Noctua's are some of the best fans you can get. It looks fine to me, I'm no expert for sure. If it works for you that's the important part. I wouldn't mind to see the rad set-up, if you care to show.  +1 for you, nice job.  
    Edit: you should make a Mods rig profile.

    Res > pumps > cpu > gpu > bottom of rad > top of rad to res

    Thanks for the comments, really appreciate it, I’ll take some more photos and upload them.

    Really nice build. Surprised to hear it turned out this well for a first time build. Just goes to show that with research even a newbie can have a professional looking build.



    Thanks for the kind words,
     
    Thankfully I got allot of assistance from this forum, and there is loads of info online which makes it really easy, just got to put the time in.
     
    Also the fact I own and run a Motorsport Garage building race cars, engine builds, rollcages etc, this was only doing a bit of assembling tbh, didn't really make anything lol.
     
    There is allot of things I do in daily work that isn't too far from this... the hardest bit for me was the different terminologies used for things, and that allot of advise is "do this" without actually ever explaining why people had come to that conclusion so made it a bit frustrating to workout why they had done things in a certain way, but when you get to the bottom of it it all makes total sense.
     
    Also I think its easy to build something that is top tier because everyone is shouting "this is the best", I think it would be harder to build a "best value" build because then you need to actually "tune" the machine to work together and balance the components... if that makes sense.
     
    The last thing I thought was really strange, is how terrible the connectors are with PC's, I'm used to working with Racing harness that use MIL spec connectors, expensive crimping tools etc, Trying to find info about PWM 4pin and Molex was like pulling teeth, its like basic info is out there but no quick pin out's to let you know if you can split the PWM feed from the 12volt.  (which depends on if its ground modulated etc), so again it was allot of "just do this" without actually explaining the system properly... In the end I had to use my scope to find my answers.  But the Molex 4pin ATX connect has to be the worst connect I have ever used in my life, not to mention I even bought the tool to crimp it properly too £60! 
     
    People moan about the price of £20 for a quick release fitting (£40 if you have female and male) in the motorsport world I pay upto £150 per side.. so two fuel lines could be £500+.  
     
    Don't use Dash fittings or AN/JIC or any standard size.. just some random ID/OD sizes... nice.  use a old G1/2 pipe thread that makes no sense to me lol
     
    I plan to put a mil spec bulk head fitting on the back of the machine now and one at the other side and make another harness, I just didn't want to blow £200 on fittings just to have a secure connection, but I think to avoid melt down of the machine It needs more secure connection to the remote pumps.
     
    it also surprised me how little water temp/pressure/flow sensors are available, with accuracy, I guess there is no market or people just don't care.
     
    I see this as a very basic build, I know its nothing special, however I did what I set out to do, build a machine that works and is reliable... also easy to maintain.   TBF I only realised yesterday I've not even tried a single game on this yet... lol.

    This for a first?  Well that is just a piece of beauty if I have to be honest! 
    And I'm sure you did a lot of research before doing something like this, all because Waku builds aka water cooling builds tend not to be the easiest things out there.

    Also make a MODS RIGS page of this beauty, then I can add your system to the EVGA MODS RIGS list, which you can find here:

    MODS RIGS is where the real magic happens well as EVGA says it would xD

    It's a an image upload sub site of this forum so we can all show off our systems and compare them with new and old systemsthroughout the entire EVGA forums
    https://www.modsrigs.com/topRating.aspx
    Just make sure your photo's are no larger than 2000 x 2000 pixels with a max file size of 2MB per photo, you can upload a max of 6, as you select and upload your images you have the option to crop them, personally I never use this , but don't forget to select a number to where they should be set to numbers 1 through 6 can be chosen :)
    That is all that is to it really

    There is the MR home page, the list I linked earlier is a list of all the coolest PC"s from the EVGA community all in one mega list.
    Which I made for my friend Chrome M Dragon, with that people can pass on +1's and cool comments per system and also discus certain aspects per system, this way CMD & I try to connect the members of this forum closer when it comes to showing new system builds or classics like I have done over the years :)

    And the more people I add in there the cooler it gets too!
